Liseberg will spend 170 million sek (20 million usd) on a new area called Lisebergs Trädgårdar, Liseberg Gardens. The area is situated between Atmosfear and Flumeride (on the mountain I presume), and will include Victorian gardens, new walking areas, and garden café. The total area is 6310 sq m (68 000 sq ft) and of that 1900 sq m (20 500 sq ft) is different garden arrangements.

Inside Lisebergs Trädgårdar a new play area for children, Barnens Paradis (Children's Paradise), will be built. This is actually the third time a play area with this name has existed at Liseberg. And inside Barnens Paradis a two-storey merry go round is found, Blomsterkarusellen. Both will be completely free to ride/use.

I have only found relatively small pictures at the Liseberg webpage, but here they are anyway!

Liseberg will reveal a third attraction on Friday at 08 am, swedish time. A picture with clouds and the words "Drömmen om att flyga" (The dream about flying) can be seen. So the rumoured Gerstlauer Sky Roller seems like a good guess :)

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

Certainly an interesting addition, looks quite nice and should go well with families

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

This should be great to counter the more thrilling additions of Helix and Mechanica the past two years. This park just keeps getting better!
Is this a trick question?

The name of the new Gerstlauer Sky Roller ride is AeroSpin @ Liseberg.

link to pressrelease

In summer 2016, Liseberg will launch an interactive aeroplane ride in the newly installed area on Liseberg hill. AeroSpin is a thrilling plane ride 70 metres above sea level – with a twist. If you want, you can make your plane spin freely as many times as you choose – one, two... or forty rotations.

“The passenger in the plane controls their ride and decides what will happen. That’s what’s so great about AeroSpin,” says Andreas Andersen, CEO, Liseberg. "The ride is what you make it – a pleasant trip with a sensational view of Gothenburg, a frenzied ride in a tumble drier or anything in between."

AeroSpin is a 35 metre high rotating tower with twelve arms, and two planes are attached to each arm. The planes have two levers, one for each wing, and the rider controls the plane and make it rotate sideways around its own axle. The attraction is being installed on Liseberg hill, so the plane rides take place roughly 70 metres above sea level. AeroSpin is a Sky Roller built by Gerstlauer of Germany, and is the world’s highest ride of its kind.

While AeroSpin is Liseberg’s highest new attraction opening in 2016, the new area where it is located, Liseberg Gardens, is one of the largest. 6,300 square metres on Liseberg hill have been converted from unused wasteland into well-groomed, inviting gardens. With beautiful plant beds and shady greenery these beautiful gardens have a Victorian feel. A new winding pathway has been built up the hill to make the climb easier. The new garden is part of the Gothenburg Green World project, in which Liseberg one of the six main partners.

While courageous visitors in Liseberg Gardens can enjoy the AeroSpin ride, younger visitors can visit Children’s Paradise, an exciting playground, and the Venetian Carousel, a double-decker merry-go-round. The area also includes a new café and a picnic area. The Waltzer, which was already in the area, has been given a welcome makeover. A total of SEK 170 million will be invested in Liseberg in 2016.

“The best thing about Liseberg’s new attractions in 2016 is that they include something for everyone, from the youngest kids to their grandparents,” says Andreas Andersen. "Children’s Paradise and the Venetian Carousel are free of charge."

AeroSpin and the new gardens will open on 23 April 2016, when Liseberg opens for the spring season.

^Interesting choice to go with the Sky Roller rather than the SkyFly, should be a really good flat ride.

Huh. I thought this all might go on the right side of Helix' entry, as I remember some old gardens there, with a non-descript
pathway. Closer to the park's entrance, is where I thought it might go. Doesn't matter, it all looks like a great addition to the park. :smile:

That looks great! I love how they keep adding to an already fantastic park to make it even better!

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

A fun teaser video for AeroSpin:




Translation of the text in the video:

for centuries man has dreamed of flying
many have tried
now it's your turn
