Riders will be immersed in more than four minutes of high-speed action, seeing them engulfed by unforgiving elements including fire, water, snow and thunder and lightning. They’ll make the half mile journey on a Viking longboat into a parallel world to reach Valhalla, experiencing plunging temperatures of -20°C and highs of more than 43°C.

The ride, whose famous tagline reminds riders “You will get wet, you may get soaked”, includes a reservoir holding over one and a half million gallons of water – enough to fill more than two Olympic sized swimming pools.

Taking riders through roaring fires and freezing mists, Valhalla will test limits and evoke shock, surprise and excitement at every twist and turn as they journey towards the right to be hailed as a true Viking warrior.

"We’ve worked so hard to find the perfect balance between maintaining nostalgia, giving the ride some much-needed TLC and adding in a few surprises for fans. Valhalla will test even the most confident rollercoaster rider’s limits, with plummeting temperatures, fiery furnaces and torrents of water.”
