Rumor: Valhalla at Blackpool to not open for 2020 season?


“World’s Best Water Ride” Valhalla to undergo rehab in 2020 and reopen for the 2021 season?

The Golden Ticket awarded “Best Water Ride” 5 years running, Valhalla at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, may not open for the 2020 season. Some rumors going around the internet are calling for an extensive rehab costing upwards of 1 Million Pounds to the indoor water attraction.

But they're just that, rumors. Amanda Thompson has finally addressed these on Twitter, mentioning a reimagining of the attraction, but also that "certainly nothing has been decided yet."

While one of the best attractions at the beachside amusement park being closed for a whole year is bad news for some, we’re happy to hear that no matter what, the ride is here to stay. Valhalla is one of my personal favorite attractions and features some effects that I haven’t experienced anywhere else in the World, but without all these effects the ride does lose a lot of its character.

Amanda also mentioned that the ride would not be getting back its original skull design on the side of the building, as it caused structural issues.

Valhalla is known for being incredibly long, wet and fire-y, with a poncho usually not being enough to keep you dry.
