p. 119 - Oceana water park announced!

Recommended Posts

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.

^^^ 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!

You can still see the original one on YT if you within the correct age span

Last sunday was the last day of the summer season. I ended my weekend in the park after helping my sister moving....

 

Here are some photos from the evening:

Have some new photos from last Saturday, but they are still in the camera and I'm currently @ Singapore Airport.

 

Liseberg release that Halloween @ Liseberg had 320 000 visitors (new record) and to 2020 they will expand the Kaninlandet.

I highly highly recommend visiting late summer or autumn, because the park has a lot of beautiful lighting and they stay open late (11PM) which means towards the end of the season the sun sets hours before park closure! I have usually visited in August-October and have been lucky so far as temperatures haven't been too bad (= bring a hoodie).

^ Cool, thanks! I really wasn't sure whether it was a walk-through or ride-through attraction.

 

I wish Playland and/or the PNE (Vancouver) would bring in at least a couple of mobile dark rides.

Yesterday I finally got the time to visit Christmas @ Liseberg. I missed the opening due to a visit to Australia and after that the weekends has been to occupied....

 

It would have been a perfect visit with clear skies and the temperature just below zero °C, but the park was full of visitors.

I got some photos before the batteries was flat (forgot to charge them after my trip to Down Under), after that I hade to use my mobile..

Balder & Valkyria was in operation and both was running fast in the cold weather.

 

On to the photos:

Liseberg is a limited company owned by the municipality of Gothenburg (yes, there are politicians on the board), and thus they do public procurements.

 

The dark ride coming in 2020 got "leaked" in the same way. I say "leaked" because the information is pretty open to anyone.

Found this really interesting YouTube video "Mega Machines - World's Greatest Roller Coaster." It's a pretty interesting watch. Escpially around the 20 minute mark when they show footage from the MACK plant on how the roller coaster track is actually made. The little robot running around pushing metal into the machine was pretty freaking awesome!

(Hope this is okay to post.)
