2016 - Soulken - (11/27/15) Djurs Sommerland has confirmed our rumor of a new flat ride this week with the announcement of Soulken, a new Gerstlauer made Polyp flat ride with a pirate theme that will be placed in the plaza in front of the park's popular Piraten coaster (Intamin Mega-Lite).
(11/19/15) While I'm still not sure what Djurs Sommerland has planned for the 2016 season, the rumors indicate that it may be a new twisty / spinny style flat ride for the entire family. I'm guessing it could be something as simple as a Scrambler, Breakdance or Tilt-A-Whirl style flat ride.
(10/20/15) I'm told that Djurs Sommerland has set a new park attendance record already before the end of the season, bringing in 801,593 guests into the park so far this year. So with that in mind, what is the park planning for 2016? I'm not sure, but I'm hearing that the park has been looking into adding new family style flat rides. We hope to know more soon.
2017 - Longest / Fastest Suspended Coaster in Europe - (7/7/16) Djurs Sommerland has announced they will open Europe's fastest and longest Family Suspended Coaster in 2017. It will be 30 meters tall, 825 meters long and hit a top speed of 85 kph. Follow the link to see a preview video animation of the new coaster layout. The manufacture of the coaster was not reported yet, but if anyone happens to know for sure, please do let us know.
(6/17/16) So what does Djurs Sommerland have in store for 2017? A kind of creepy looking construction wall showing what looks kind of like a dragon or giant reptile eye peeking out the crack in a wooden door built into an off-white wall with greek style pillars and some sections of blast damage exposing the bricks. (Dragon fire?). Overhead is a sign that says NYHED 2017, or “New 2017” in English. Early rumors suggested this would be a ride for adults and kids alike, but now I’m wondering if this might be some kind of dark ride experience. Anyone know more? Our photographer also sent in a great photo of the park’s new Soulken flat ride running with Piraten in the background.
(3/15/16) According to one of our sources Djurs Sommerland has submitted for permits to build a new attraction in 2017 with a noise level permit rated the same as what the park had for the huge Piraten coaster as well as 2016’s new Soulken ride. The new attraction wont be as big as Piraten however, as it says the ride is for both adults and kids, will take up 5000m2, stand between 25-28 meters tall and built in a mostly empty area on the opposite side of the park entrance plaza from Piraten.
Construction is expected to begin sometime between Spring and Summer, though we don't know exatly what it will be. Chances are it could be a coaster, and the park is said to be font of Intamin and Gerstlauer coasters at the moment. We'll have to wait and see, in the meantime you can see some of the documentation, in Danish, by following this link.
