Liseberg Discussion Thread

p. 119 - Oceana water park announced!

Recommended Posts

Lalle, The Intamin drop towers are superior to any S&S turbo drops (Höjdskräcken) and they don't come much better than this I really hope that the ring will be spinning on the way up like it does on Scream at Heide Park since then you still have an observation tower, just a much much more thrilling one

 

If you read the bit you quoted from the Liseberg AtmosFear page again, you will see that it says Attraction not Tower, and I'm pretty sure that it refers to the 53 meter tall observation wheel that have to be moved from the harbour by the end of next summer, I really doubt that we will see another observation tower in the park though...

Yeah, I think it'll be much better than Höjdskräcken, wouldn't mourn if they took it down as well.

I hope the gondola will produce that massive gust of wind when it lands in the basement. Feels very nice on a hot day.

^ I don't think that this one will create the great air effect as Scream does, I'm pretty sure that the station needs to be more open for it to work, the station for AtmosFear is a bit to closed up for the air to go anywhere to create any wind, so I think that there will be a more of an air pressure effect instead. Sure there will be some air moving, but nothing on the same scale as Scream does.

 

Another thing that makes me think that there will be a lesser air effect is that the car will be smaller, 36 riders instead of 40, and the tower diameter on Lisebergtornet is larger than the original observation tower of Scream, so AtmosFear will have a smaller cross section that can move the air.

Stopped by Liseberg today since it was the last day that Lisebergtornet was operation before it's transformation into AtmosFear.

 

First up today was the tower, free of charge!!

 

Next time you have this view you might shit your pants

 

Park from above!!

 

There will be a massive changes made to the mountain over the coming seasons

 

Can't wait for them to transform this slow ride

 

Gothenburg Wheel

 

 

Now for some shots of what is going to be the future station of AtmosFear

 

When the tower opened, as UFO23, this space were filled with Liseberg Rabbits

 

It were the location where they came crashing down to Earth, hence the initial name of the tower

 

In the year 2000 when Liseberg opened Kaninresan (kiddy rabbit boat ride) they were moved from this location, which stopped the tower to first lower down to the Rabbit world before rising to the top

 

It have since then been an empty hole which soon will be filled again!!

 

I wrap this all up with a panorama image from the top of the tower.

I passed Liseberg earlier today and saw that they have begun to rebuild the Liseberg Tower. I think it will be a great ride!

I have found two old video clips from Liseberg at SVT's website (Swedish television).

 

This one is from the park's 40th anniversary. (1963) http://svtplay.se/v/1989375/oppet_arkiv/liseberg_1963?sb,k103034,1,f,103036

 

This video contains a short POV of the Vekoma inverted roller coaster HangOver, and scenes from the inside of the Gasten Ghost Hotel (Spökhotellet Gasten). (1998) http://svtplay.se/v/1987589/oppet_arkiv/spokhotellet_gasten?sb,k103034,3,f,103036

 

Enjoy!

^^^ I didn't know that Liseberg had a Facebook page, might be a reason to get an FB account then....

 

^ I really love the old one, just pure bliss to see the history of Liseberg, I really hope that they will put up more in the future.

^^ Next time you post an image you haven't taken yourself post the source of it, which in this case was me

 

^ Only from 66 meters this time, I would guess that they will increase it for every run until they get to the top. I might stop by our Liseberg observation point when I go to Gothenburg tomorrow...
