  1. The only 2014 coaster I rode was Banshee. I though it was a great ride; it sits at #6 on my list. It's my second favorite B&M (behind Diamondback), and by far the best B&M Invert I've ridden (out of Silver Bullet, Raptor, and Batman).


    It was sort of a let down, but it's a very solid coaster that is very re-rideable.


    "By far the best B&M invert I've ridden" but "sort of a let down"? How would being better than Raptor by far be a let down?

  3. Definitely one of the highlights of the trip. I thought the glow ride in 2012 would never be topped, but this did it! Phoenix was kicking all sorts of A$$ on Friday night. I can't believe it actually started smoking because it was running so fast!


    Can we go back to Knoebels now?


    This ^


    That was probably the best single day I've ever had at a park and Phoenix totally blew away my expectations. I'd put it tied for my number one with Balder. (Yes, I even liked it more than El Toro)

  4. Bizarro is still #4 in the Mitch Hawker poll and yet the best coaster at the park is Batman???


    I don't think some of the locals appreciate Bizarro enough but that's probably because they've ridden it when it was SROS with the better trains. I never got to ride it in that form but I rode it as Bizarro a few months ago for the first time and thought it was a fantastic ride, definitely better than every other ride in the park by quite a bit.

  5. Had an amazing day at Liseberg today' and got my 100th credit on Helix! I was there with my family from 11-5pm and then it started to rain so they wanted to leave. If it was up to me, we would've stayed till it closed! Anyway, here's a breakdown of the day and the rides I went on:


    Helix x3

    Balder x3

    Lisebergbanan x2

    Kanonen x1

    Rabalder x1

    Stampbanan x1

    Atmosphere x1

    Log flume x1

    Uppswinget x1


    Helix got better every time I rode it. I ended up liking the back the most especially for that initial drop out of the station, you just fly out of it! I'd put it in my top5 steel coasters I've been on, definitely met expectations.


    I didn't really know what to expect for Balder but wow was it good. I think it's my favorite roller coaster I've ever been on. I would just laugh the whole time, it was so much fun and smooth as glass. If I got to stay till the park closed, I probably would've tried to get like 10 rides on it. My favorite seat was also the very back on this one too.


    But yea, overall, awesome day and Liseberg is a wonderful park. I'll definitely go here again some day.

  6. No problem. I'd also suggest waiting for the front seat. Best seat on Helix, in my opinion. Balder was a better back seat ride (there aren't any bad seats, though).


    I'm gonna do my best to get a back and front seat ride on both of them. Balder in the back = massive I bet which is always great.


    Make sure to buy your tickets online in advance. This will give you 3 express pass to use on 3 unique attractions (should do Helix, Balder and one of ur choice).


    Oh, nice! Is the express pass a skip the line pass pretty much?

  7. @_koppen I have no doubt that it's an awesome coaster and am totally looking forward to riding it but for my 100th coaster, I have my mind set on Helix or Balder.


    @Barge84 A 20 minute wait all day for Balder sounds fantastic, I hope I'm that lucky when I go there this Sunday. And yea, I'm leaning more towards Helix now since beating the lines for an insta-ride in the morning sounds really tempting. Thanks!

  8. Been touring Scandinavia with my parents for the last week and a half and in 2 days, I'll be lucky enough to spend a day at Liseberg which I'm super excited for! I visited Grona Lund today and was planning on having Insane be my 100th coaster credit but as we all know, that coaster isn't running right now after the unfortunate accident on the other zacspin.


    With that being said, I get to have my 100th coaster credit be either Balder or Helix which is pretty amazing but right now I can't decide. I'm gonna be getting to the park on Sunday right when it opens so which one would make sense to go to first? I have a feeling everyone will say Helix since it's brand new and will have longer lines during the day but I just want to ask out of curiosity.

  9. Exactly what we experienced this morning. It's a free for all. It helped to be 1st at security.


    Great news for taller riders. The shin bars are much more accommodating.


    Yeah, thanks to getting there an hour early, we got to be at the front of security and were on the ride 10 minutes after the park opened! We are currently going around and riding all the other rides since the waits are small.


    Goliath is definitely the best ride in the park. Even though it's short, all the elements are unique and thrilling. It's one of those rides that would be amazing to marathon over and over again. It's extremely smooth, sounds like a wood coaster but feels like a steel coaster I'd say.


    On my way out, I saw Alan Schilke which was really surreal. I shook his hand and told him the ride was awesome but I didn't have time to get a picture or anything with him since we were in the exiting path way and there were people behind us.


    It's been an awesome day to say the least!

  10. Spent an awesome day at the park today and plan on doing so again tomorrow.


    Magnum - 10min wait

    Maverick - 5min wait

    Everything else including millennium force, walk on. (Excluding the front of the park coasters cuz we didn't go on those yet, will do so tomorrow)


    Never thought I'd be lucky enough to visit the park on a day like this where the lines were non-existent!


    Also, rode sky hawk for the first time and enjoyed the jumbo screamin' swing quite a bit. Looking forward to riding pipe scream tomorrow!
