Liseberg just released more info including pictures, on their new waterpark. Let me introduce you to OCEANA And finally, here's an overview of the whole new "Jubileum

Hey everybody!   This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Liseberg, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-fri

Liseberg is suing design consultant Cowi for a total amount of 68 million SEK (7.85 million dollars) for poor design and calculations of Valkyrias tunnel, causing the delayed opening.

 

Lawyers from both Liseberg and Cowi have been involved since 2018, but since the two parties still can't come to an agreement Liseberg is now taking their claim to court.

I still hope that the regulations are changed in time, so Liseberg can be open for Christmas season......

I don't live in Sweden anymore but this was once my hometown park so I definitely have a soft spot for Liseberg. Does anyone know what the status is on the rumoured Flume Ride refurb?

I am interested too.

But was it only about a refurb or a full replacement?

It's a full replacement which is in the hands of Intamin.

I want to know more about the new flume also though, if anyone knows anything more so far?

After years of planning, the construction can now start on Liseberg’s year-round, indoor water park. The water park – that will be named Oceana – is the second part of Liseberg’s expansion project, marking the parks centennial in 2023. With unique themes and 14 water attractions, the experience will be unlike anything else on the north European market.

Last year construction started on the first part of Liseberg’s expansion project, the park-integrated Liseberg Grand Curiosa Hotel. Now construction of the second part will begin – the indoor water park Oceana. The building of the hotel and water park is an important step on Liseberg’s journey towards becoming a year-round destination.

The water park will, like the hotel, have a unique theme, inspired by Gothenburg's history and the Swedish East India Company, combined with Liseberg's own unique DNA. With a gross area of 13 600 m² indoors, and 4 000 m² outdoors, guests will be able to enjoy everything from toddler pools to thrilling water rides. The park has been designed by one of Sweden’s leading architects, Wingårdhs, and the water attractions will be designed and manufactured by WhiteWater.

"In addition to a highly themed environment, the park offers a lot of new features – and not just for the Swedish market. These includes the first six-person raft rides in Europe, and the highest mega-drop Master Blaster in the World." – says Thomas Sjöstrand, CPO of Liseberg's Expansion Project.

The construction of Oceana will take approximately three years and represents an investment of 110 million Euros. With a capacity up to 1750 guests simultaneously, Oceana will be one of the largest water parks in northern Europe.

As an entitled enthusiast this seems like quite the downgrade from the previous concept art. But still seems like a good project, hopefully they expand even more as per their future plans south of Balder.
