    Great to see that construction has started! Has Lisebergbananana now closed until next season for this construction?

    It's amazing how hemmed in that park really is. It makes you realise how much clever planning influences coaster design.

    RIGHT. SO. 2014!

    This is really looking awesome :)

    Looking forward to seeing this when it's up fully.

    IMAScore are really coming up trumps with their soundtracks, too. Definitely a company that we will see more of!

    An unofficial Facebook page for the ride has plenty of construction images to admire:
