p. 120 - Luna Park themed land announced!

Recommended Posts

That looks better than i excepted! My favourite part is that last roll straight to the brake run. And the colours look great too.

The Great Sweden Roadtrip 2018 here I come! Gröna Lund, Kolmården and Liseberg...

The press release also stated that the Wave Swinger will be moved to a new location in order to make way for Valkyria and a new dark ride replacing Sagoslottet will come a few years down the road.

 

Construction has already begun on the station building, on the former site of Kanonen. Other attractions will be running as usual until late summer, when the Fairy Tale Castle and Wave Swinger need to shut down to make room for Valkyria. The Wave Swinger will be placed in a new location in 2018, and there are plans to replace the Fairy Tale Castle in a few years with a similar attraction.

This has got to be my favourite dive-coaster layout ( at least conceptually). I like that it starts and then just keep going to the end... A splash-down would have been cool at the end... Because it adds a cool dimension to any park that has it.

That's how I feel about dive-coasters in general... They're big, impressive and add a ton of spectacle even for people not riding.

 

And on a side note, and at the risk of ticking some people off.

These Ima-scores do nothing for me.

A nicely themed area with a great theming does not need speakers with wondrous music to sell the idea.

I like the physicality of being in the presence of a roller-coaster, and I want to feel and hear that physicality.

Adding Hans Zimmer-cloned music just adds a dimension of fake-ness I don't need...

but I'm difficult like that, and to each his own.

 

Anyway, can't wait to get to Liseberg next year and ride this baby.

That's like the 4th time that wave swinger is moved to a new location. Anyway, I'm super excited about all this new info. It took a minute considering that we had the full layout for Helix 2 years before it opened.

Unfortunately, the premier of Loke must be postponed for a week, Liseberg announced today through a press release. They write that some details such as decorations, programming the ride and training staff are not completely finished yet. This is due to a delay in the beginning of the construction process.

Liseberg just announced that the opening of Loke has been delayed with one week until April 29, they still have some finishing touches and need more time to train the staff. Some testing can be seen in the video below, although when operating Loke will swing approx. 30 degrees higher.

UGh. One of those ^^ did me in during the TPR 2012 China Tour, I think.

Probably a Happy Valley franchise park - I've blocked out where I rode it.

 

And I skipped the one in Tusenfryd, when TPR returned there in 2014.

 

Great for taking video +/or photos, not for riding any more, unfortunately.

Liseberg actually did a competition to celebrate the opening of Loke where they took some winners to the Happy Valley park's Loke style ride. I can't find the video anymore though the title might of been Swedish.

Liseberg also posted a new video on Loke, with some POVs. Looks really cool the way you swing up against Balder!

 

Thanks for sharing the video! Loke will definitely give some interesting views of Balder that we have not been able to get before.

 

I wasn't really planning to visit Liseberg this year with Valkyria opening next year, but given how great Liseberg is I could easily make the trip every year. The people of Gothenburg are really lucky to have this amazing park in their city!

Due to the layout of Valkyria the fairytale castle will be removed in the end of the season and the waveswinger will be moved.

According to GP, ( http://www.gp.se/nyheter/göteborg/klassiska-lisebergsattraktionen-skrotas-1.4246612 ) it will actually be a new wave swinger, although the look and feel will be the same.

 

As for Sagoslottet, the general public seem to be somewhat sad/disappointed to see it go. Many have grown up riding it, the ride is originally from 1968 and was changed into its current form in 1985. But as Liseberg stated a new dark ride aimed at children is in planning, according to Göteborg Direkt http://www.goteborgdirekt.se/nyheter/snipp-snapp-snut-sa-var-sagan-slut/repqdu!GAZfJxqxIGWWk7p5RM@7Q/ it will be placed close to the rabbit land, I'm not sure where it would fit there though to be honest.

 

Personally I feel that Liseberg has really changed a lot the last 10-15 years, mostly for the better although some of the nostalgia is gone.

After joining the local #MarchForSience in Göteborg, I payed Liseberg a visit in the sunny spring weather on the summer season premiere.

 

The red carpet was rolled out to greet the visitors:

I know that I haven't been that active on TPR lately due to I have been busy at work and my car got rear ended by a truck last month and the doctors advice was to take it easy for a while. But no neck or back pain

Great pics!

 

Loke look absolutely massive, and the surroundings look great aswell. Really looking forward to riding later in the summer. This together with Ikaros at Gröna Lund it looks like another great year for being an enthusiast in Sweden, we've been really spoiled with great additions lately.

Great report on the area around Loke and the ride itself.

Love the park. Love the park. I repeat: Love - The - Park.

 

But...."MAX"? Is that a local or European franchise? I don't remember seeing one on any

past TPR tours. But then, I remember most of the traveling, I was looking at everything

BUT hamburger spots.

 

I'm just curious, thanks. And glad you're okay, after that rear ender.

 

 

OOPS! It's okay. I looked, and I found the Swedish MAX chain. I like it's menu!
