Liseberg Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

It was a "smooth start" today, so it closed at seven. Tomorrow is official opening day, so I assume it will be open until 2300.

Hope they get the queing sorted by tomorrow as well. A bit of a mess today. I was refused the single queue because it was "too long". Took me an hour in the regular queue. When I got to the end they took 5 people from the single queue who had waited only 15 minutes, in front of me, and I had to wait for the next ride. They were clearly a bit stressed, first day on the job

Valkyria was pretty dope. Wouldn’t say it’s the next Helix/Balder but it’s a really solid addition to a really solid park.


The vests sit pretty tight while you sit in the station but riding it you don’t feel them at all. The holding brake gives you a great hanging sensation even when you’re not in the front row.


I also rode Loke and Mechanica both for the first time and both scared the crap out of me... But I’m glad I got to experience them.

Some photos from last Friday, when I was a teacher aid at this year physic lecture @ Liseberg.

Liseberg has started to demolish building for the temporary parking space during the construction of the hotel and water park @ Södra parkeringen.



Liseberg have released a shorter, more "friendly" Halloween video:

^^^ Awwwww, that's too bad about re-editing the first video. It's still ok, but really quick, now.

The first one actually gave me a jump, near the end of it.


Oh well, I guess you have to change things, if your video gets banned on YouTube.


And by the way - BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO to Youtube!

I had the pleasure to try Valkyria for the first time a few weeks ago. I did the single rider line (still took 50 minutes as it was an extraordinarily busy saturday) and was randomly assigned an outer seat on the front row.

I absolutely loved it! It's actually now my favourite coaster in the park. I was a dive coaster virgin before Valkyria so I don't know where it stands compared to some of the bigger ones out there, but I absolutely loved it.


Tried Helix again but it just doesn't do it for me for some reason. The hill after the inverted top hat gives some great ejector air time but otherwise I'm not much of a fan.

Mechanica and Loke were amazing. Tried AeroSpin as well but as embarrassed as I am to admit it once we got up at the top I just froze and didn't dare to spin at all! It was somewhat windy and even the wind tipping me slightly to the side scared me to death so I just sat still and prayed for it to be over!


I got one round on Lisebergsbanan as well but that's all the rides that we had time for due to the insane crowds. I've never seen Liseberg that crowded. Next time I will definitely go on a weekday.


Liseberg really is a fantastic park and I'm glad to hear about the new dark ride coming. Now that Sagoslottet isn't there anymore that part of the park feels a bit dead. It's also the ugliest section, with it's gaudy fast food relics and random claw machine games from the 80's standing out like an eyesore in the otherwise gorgeous surroundings. I'm guessing this part of the park will be getting the makeover it deserves once the waterpark opens in that area.
