Valhalla work to include ‘most spectacular waterfall’

Refurbishment work being undertaken on Pleasure Beach Resort’s dark ride Valhalla will include the construction of a waterfall facade, according to the park.

The ride’s original frontage was removed following the end of the 2011 season, and a sign has appeared at the construction site.

It reads: “Valhalla is one of the world’s greatest dark rides, now we are creating the most spectacular man-made waterfall spanning 30m and cascading 12,000 gallons of water per minute.”

The existing facade featured pumps capable of dispensing the same amount of water, which indicates that the system will be unchanged.

No changes are expected to be made to the ride’s internal layout or track, but it has been reported that some scenes and special effects may be altered.

Valhalla opened  in 2000 and features special effects and scenes incorporating water, snow, fire and electricity.

It is expected to re-open in time for the Easter weekend.
