Gröna Lund accident
On July 3rd, Gröna Lund reopened to the public for the first time since the fatal roller coaster accident. Rides initially remained closed but reopened today.
The CEO of Gröna Lund, Jan Eriksson, announced ahead of the weekend that the park wanted to provide an opportunity for the public to visit the amusement park for a “peaceful moment,” also adding that their thoughts were with the affected families.
Eriksson also expressed understanding for why some might be hesitant to get back on the rides, "of course, it will feel special to reopen after an event like this. We try to be as transparent as possible in what we do to regain the guests' trust." So far the park has not provided any details on the fate of the rollercoaster Jetline's future, but did say it would be out of service until the accident investigation could be completed.
After the fatal accident on June 25th Gröna Lund granted inspectors access to the park’s rides to conduct inspections. The inspection company Dekra will carry out the inspections, but it may take over a year before the Accident Investigation Board completes its report.
