Thors hammer – Storyline;
«On your way into the cave you discover that Thor, the god of lightning, has lost his hammer «Mjölnir» in his preparations for the Battle of Ragnarok. It is one of the other gods, Loke, that has stolen the hammer. We set out on a journey to assist Thor in getting his hammer back. Throughout the different sceneries we will encounter Loke and his offspring in all their different evil shape ... will you succeed in aiding Thor?» ...
This is an excerpt taken from one of the earliest drafts of our big new project «Thors Hammer», after a brainstorm with our dutch partner P&P Projects. The project dates back to 2008, the last year operating our old pride «Vikingtoktet» in the mountain hall at TusenFryd.
In 1995 TusenFryd opened it's own theme park called the Vikingland. A vital part in the development of this area was a giant mountain hall where the ride «Toktet» was installed. This was an elaborate multimedia-ride by the present standards, but over time this kind of attraction became unfashionable. After the 2008-season we called it quits, and «Toktet» was releived of its duty.
At the same time the process of developing a new exciting attraction for park was initiated. After a planning period extending over two years, we finally landed on a concept in collaboration with P&P Projects in the Netherlands. The goal has been to a add a type of attraction currently not present at TusenFryd. An attraction with high capacity, and at the same time utilizing the newest technology, in order to give our guests the best possible ride experience.
