  1. Robb! Sorry for the late reply. I was there on the opening day. The line was 2 hours long most of the day. The whole queue area surprised me. It turned out really good. That was the first question when we walked there on the media day. Where and how they where going to do the line. They had some minor technical problems and could only run one train for a while. Korey looked a little bit stressed.. The restraints where fully automatic aswell so they must have been working 24/7 the last days before opening. The weather was splendid, sunny, almost hot like a summerday and alot of celebrities participated. The park was really busy, 14000 visitors and some lines where 60+ minutes. I took my second ride for the day at 21:30. Holy crap, the ride was insane! it ran like a bat out of hell. the airtime was crazy. It was a totally different coaster compared to the media day in the snow. Twister totally rocks! / Robban
  2. I still quote this picture with what i told you when we snapped this picture and i ruined your expression "Too much Mc Donalds Robb"! Did i just win a Bag-o-crap now? Nice to meet you and Hanno today. See you in September ! / Rob
  3. DiSab: Vertigo is manufactured by Technical Park - Italy!
  4. Cirkusexpressen (The Zierer Tiovli Coaster) will be replaced with a Zierer Force Two coaster, however, i don´t know of any name or themeing yet. As for the Rainbow, it´s been scrapped (as said) but they don´t have any plans on replacing it with something for the 2009 season. Maybe a small "last-minute-kiddie-ride-installation" will be made. I hate to tell you this, but Kulingen, the remainings of my so beloved Aerovarvet (Intamin Space Shuttle) is also being removed. There´s a chance it will be sold to another european park, otherwise, Liseberg will Scrap it and I HATE THEM FOR THAT! They won´t replace it either so 2009 means 2 less rides *sighs* We´ll just have to wait and see what 2010 can bring us since Hang Hai doesn´t make me river dance if i say so... / Robert
  5. Hello! Sorry for my late answer. As for the UFO ride, the manufacturer is a spanish company named Robles Bouso (i guess that´s the name of the owner). i haven´t managed to find out more facts than he/them/they´ve built a couple of paratrooper rides, octopus rides and so this UFO thing. They might have manufactured other rides also but these are the only one i could came up with right now. We actually had a RB Ufo travelling here in Sweden in the late 70´s. The ride came directly from the factory up to the north of Sweden. I´ll attach 2 pictures of it when it was brand new and 2 pictures from it´s new home, in Poland, taken 2007. Hope i didn´t got oo offtopic now. / Robert During the late 70´s As it looks "today" (2007) As it looks "today" (2007) During the late 70´s
  6. Nice TR!! It looks like it was a little more crowded than my visit. However, nice photoshop from the Pandavision. I´ve forgot about the queuelines to the right of the lift hill of Lisebergbanan. That really reminds me of the 90´s when i was a young kid and just wanted to hit Aerovarvet but had to wait for the others to come with me. Beautyful day! Nice photos! Keep it up!
  7. Hi Rob! Thank you for that, my first TR ever so i did my best Oh no problems. I was never hyped about Balder...I wasn´t even excited until i went over the top down the first drop.....Balder really chocked me and since that i always ride it ofcourse. Lisebergsbanan is a true legend. There´s so many myths and so much interesting history behind that coaster. It truly is a piece of history! It´s still the parks most popular ride. No ride has ever come close to the massive success it had when it opened 1987. The last 2 helixes pulls off massive G´s
  8. Thanks mate I did made a few minor faults, making a TR in the middle of the night when you´re going to work the day after just doesn´t work.... Liseberg4ever: I managed to mix them up..ofcourse it´s an Arrow! Thank you for telling me
  9. Bucket! I took this satellite photo for you (and everybody else, ofcourse). Here you can really follow the coasters layout over the mountain. As you can see, the coaster is long and you can wake me up in the middle of the night, and i´ll draw it´s layout for you (i´ve rode it hundreds of times)
  10. Hahahaha, Elissa, i suppose that you, more or less, loves Balder? What about Robb? He must be quite upset that a pile of wood and iron is sexier than he is? However, thank you for your kind words. I can´t say my English is good, but here in Sweden, they start to teach you english in school at the age of 10. Add all the televisions programs and movies that you watch and your english is constantly "maintained" without your knowledge. I also use it quite alot so maybe that´s why? I think you´ve seen worse English than mine I´m curious now. Since you loved Balder, how about Kanonen? That´s also an Intamin coaster, or is Robb better than that one? Nrthwnd: Aah, i see. That´s the visit where you got hammers, right? I´ve seen it on Youtube. Too bad i wasn´t aware of TPR at that time. I´ve always loved riding amusement rides but it´s the last year where the interest "behind the scenes" has come. Liseberg won´t be removed, let me tell you that. What we enthusiasts are waiting for now is the "OK, GO" for the expansion. They´re going to expand the park on the southern area, where the parking lot is. The only question is, WHEN? They´re having problems with the government i guess and everybody is quite unpacient right now. Thank you Bucket Lisebergbanan is a REAL classic and is still, after 21 years of operation, the parks most popular ride. More popular then Balder and Kanonen! However, it needs to be repainted now since the track has began to rust on the areas where the wheels go. I´ve never seen a coaster that´s so customised as Lisebergbanan. It´s a really great ride even if it doesn´t feature the typical Schwarzkopf dives. Its doesn´t actually have any major drop. The biggest drop is the first of the three helixes and the first "drop" is a 360 degree helix. After that, you race into a high g turnaround where they have placed the S&S Turbo Drop, so that´s really cool. However, the feeling of racing through the trees, over the mountain, over the Logflume, thru the last Helix behind the trees, is really cool. Also when you dive thru the helixes an passes under the Screamin Swing. I think it´s still the longest Schwarzkopf coaster ever built since the ride is 1548 meters long. Too bad i was too young (born 1982) when they built the coaster during the winter 1986 because my fathers company transported the lifthill, some of the supports and i think it was 2 of the three helixes. Just imagine the pictures i could have When the coaster opened, Anton Schwarzkopf rode it himself and he immediately said that it was his best coaster ever. The best thing is that the lines are moving really fast since they run all five trains during busy days!
  11. Thank you Groteslurf. As i said earlier, it´s my first TR and it´s very nice too see that people like my TR. It sure do take some time to make them. Liseberg is a very very nice park. Besides the good rides they offer, the park is magnificant. It´s really clean and tidy and in the evenings..wow. It´s so cozy. It´s really magic. Especially when you hear the trains coming over the mountain on Lisebergbanan with all the lights on. Beautyful!
  12. Loefet, my bad. i forgot the small frog hoppers... Nrthwnd, thank you so much. It´s my first TR ever so your words made me happy As for the Gaston Hotel. I walked through it last summer. I´m sorry, but maybe it scares the teenagers, but i didn´t find it frightening at all. I like how they use real actors though. That´s cool! When did you visit Liseberg? It´s five days since my visit and i already miss it alot!
  13. Aliston: Do you know when you are going there? If you know, please give me the date. Maybe i can meet up with you. It´s only 5 days since i was there but i´m already having anxiety.... Another great thjing for you to know is that Balder has very low downtime as far as i know. It happens a coulple of times a day that the train stops on the wrong wpot in the station, so they have to reverse the train to the "parking spot". Make sure you catch Balder later on in the day, when the bearings are warmed up. It´s a BIG difference! When we rode it the last 2 times, those "anti-lift-wheels" where almost constantly "activated". Those two rides where way out of control Interesting with the swedish roots. I´ve always claimed that there´s a Swedish guy in every American body. It´s like the Americans want´s to be as us here in Sweden
  14. Aliston: It was my pleasure to make this TR Liseberg is a really beautyful park and it really has that "magic atmosphere" in it. A tip for you, when going there, make sure you enter the park via the SOUTHERN entrance. The southern entrance is just beside the Huss Rainbow. The southern entrance isn´t that busy as the main entrance (Northern) and when you enter the park, you have 2 ticket/ride pass booth´s besides the entrance. Choosing the southern entrance means that you´re ready to rock and roll earlier. You won´t need to stay in the lines for the ridepass/tickets that long. You also have about 4 minutes walking to Kanonen and Balder from here, expect 10 minutes from the main entrance (during busy days)!Anyways, i hope you will enjoy your Liseberg visit
  15. Thank you packfanlv. I can´t say i´m a great photographer so i really did my best. I´ve got more pictures so i will edit this thread later on tonight. Kingbooba: Stupid is just the beginning of that thing. Even the super-awesome-rideop told me "This isn´t even popular. It´s not fun. It just swings back and forth. On a busy day we use 30 % of it´s capacity." The park director told me that Aerovarvet wasn´t popular anymore, so they rebuilt it into this thing. Well. if it wasn´t popular as Aerovarvet, what should we call it now, then? I just HATE when they scrap or take out these Space Shuttles and Looping Starships.
