Photo TR: My first visit to Liseberg


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

From August 9th to 10th 2016, I went for my first ever time to Sweden to visit the wonderful Liseberg. I was most excited about finally getting to ride Helix and Balder. After riding Blue Fire at Europa-Park earlier this year, I was even more excited for Helix. I was a bit worried about the crowds, because I heard from a lot of people that it can get very busy at this park. But thankfully, a bit of early morning rain kept the big crowds away, resulting in relative low waiting times. The longest we waited was about 30 minutes for Mechanica. Balder and Helix were around 25 minutes all day. All the other rides were pretty much walk-on. It could not have been better!

 

But enough talking now, let's check out the photos!

Welcome to Liseberg!

DSC_0747.thumb.JPG.ab8785e36f41db66177f0e8d63ba043a.JPG

You wouldn't say that this park is located in the middle of a city. My first impressions of the park were great! What a lovely park.

We headed straight to the biggest ride in Liseberg. No, not Atmosfear..

DSC_0742.thumb.JPG.c68db5dba24f009874d6da89a2146854.JPG

Unlike most coasters, you have a little pre-launch section on Helix. >> Bonus points!

DSC_0660.thumb.JPG.505141344b140660c5e898eadffe4452.JPG

Right out of the station, you dive into this funky inversion.

DSC_0641.thumb.JPG.ed6fa3b0f675b57a767a271fb5f95bda.JPG

Great hangtime!

DSC_0647.thumb.JPG.597aa10d0b5694eef332db47cfd056e5.JPG

The only negative point I can say about Helix, is that the launches weren't very forceful. They were fun, but there wasn't that "insane" feeling like you get on some other launch coasters. Still fun, though!

DSC_0651.thumb.JPG.0bab52dbfed47a301ae308dc815e6b73.JPG

My first ride was in the back. And ow man, there is some great ejector airtime! I wasn't expecting that.

DSC_0648.thumb.JPG.ab9921b4ef420b69b2117a4497fad3b7.JPG

Hands up if you love Helix!

DSC_0679.thumb.JPG.5a7650729926c8fd3335cb581e843a67.JPG

Last inversion of the ride. Not as crazy as the hangtime you get on Blue Fire's In-Line Twist, but still pretty good.

DSC_0669.thumb.JPG.edb6f48fb0efe88c18f75fd4230727ff.JPG

Aaaaaand into the brakes.

DSC_0670.thumb.JPG.3a6f0439bd54ec62a50c17e402d65020.JPG

Look at those trains! B-E-A-UTIFUL!

 

After riding Helix for a total of 11 times in two days, with numerous night rides, I can now officialy say that this is my third favourite coaster. The ride itself is fantastic; great inversions, butter smooth, good forces. And it is not just the ride, but the whole experience that you get. It all starts when you enter the queue. There is such a good atmosphere, and the music really gets you excited! I absolutely loved it!

The Liseberg Wheel. Great views from up there!

DSC_0844.thumb.JPG.eb923b2a50fc8550433ccc3e1b2a589f.JPG

Next up was the park's Drop Tower, named AtmosFear. It was high, it was fast, but that's pretty much it. The drop wasn't very forceful.

DSC_0692.thumb.JPG.5db58be448b92c70479cfc90c5063034.JPG

You know what they say.. What goes up, must come down.

A Universal fountain with some Swedish words before it. I don't understand, but I htink it's about a big panda or so.

DSC_0760.thumb.JPG.391aa6b957390e3e8725adc86e8d506c.JPG

Next ride was Lisebergbanan. This was a very fun coaster. Not the smoothest, but a very good family ride! I really enjoyed it.

Going up the lift hill.

DSC_0682.thumb.JPG.d381e9ff9f2aaf49ed6bc168c695987b.JPG

Also, there was some airtime here and there.

Helix photobombing (not the only time you will se this).

It is a fun coaster!

Anyone for a ride on the Bumper Cars?

DSC_0772.thumb.JPG.b0368bfddebdba98d32e7ae5f2e9fe44.JPG

Helix is just everywhere you look. Really, this ride is so big.

JukeBox is themed after a.. Well uhm, JukeBox.

DSC_0778.thumb.JPG.67c26490d1af9c91487ff670cd6a6e80.JPG

Liseberg is a lot more beautiful than I expected it to be.

DSC_0780.thumb.JPG.d9d904687b833b0a5dd61f0b5f30b14d.JPG

Next up, Kanilendet?? Keninland?? Kanindet? Okay, let's just call it the kids area.

DSC_0781.thumb.JPG.7dcbf42e22f392ae4bf428e1e5704e2d.JPG

You can get some good bumps here..

DSC_0785.thumb.JPG.d941153d82bcfabe05a3dd1ea2ce115a.JPG

What a lovely area!

DSC_0786.thumb.JPG.52637df3a09caf019300d4244a4ed2a1.JPG

The next ride was Rabalder. (Again, Helix photobomb)

DSC_0789.thumb.JPG.51f677654b52cbdc528c43aaf0431f70.JPG

It was fun, nothing special. Some nice theming, though.

DSC_0790.thumb.JPG.ec4f18f7a579bb4c1fe3272b54fb8883.JPG

Credit whoring? Sure, why not.

Some more photos from Helix for you guys.

DSC_0691.thumb.JPG.a5086b805066838f9b7de124239dc904.JPG

The Norwegian Loop was the most intense part of the ride.

DSC_0697.thumb.JPG.125e963e76754e5c1cd4f69332302479.JPG

The color scheme reminded me a bit of Kärnan...

Look at that! No words..

DSC_0717.thumb.JPG.760b18fe620040ca95a2fb2406870d46.JPG

Night rides in the front will change your life! Believe me.

Some great AtmosFear with Helix. (no pun intended)

Who doesn't like some nice curves?

LOVE!

DSC_0817.thumb.JPG.5af924f820d96790fc1ef536549b084b.JPG

Next up was Kanonen, the Intamin Accelerator coaster of the park.

DSC_0816.thumb.JPG.9ae31f6d521a387e4053f02b0ba1fa17.JPG

The launch was great, more powerful than I thought. Not as intense as Desert Race's launch, but still pretty good.

DSC_0820.thumb.JPG.696855d55d2fe8ad94203619ecce4c1d.JPG

Loooop the looop.

DSC_0823.thumb.JPG.00207a2582aa1187fefc67e13222d526.JPG

Kanonen was okay. Nothing mind blowing.

Beautiful bridges, only at Liseberg.

Hotel Gasten was amazing! I really loved it! Really worth the additional charge.

DSC_0796.thumb.JPG.b6e41b2d4ec4a2de0cf5b178e19fc0ca.JPG

The next ride was Kållerado, the Rapids of the park.

DSC_0797.thumb.JPG.2b68ce363918b88064baec7ccb66853e.JPG

It was a fun ride, with some nice theming. And I didn't get that wet.

DSC_0798.thumb.JPG.975e7b17559f5f7dc0c40f1dfd5b42fb.JPG

Just another flat ride thingy.

DSC_0800.thumb.JPG.58b87b0d3af273cf880286aaf11c8b8b.JPG

Now, it's finally time for Balder! Ow, I mean Bollder???

DSC_0801.thumb.JPG.c629a55ec7e30b4163d0f485b8672f19.JPG

Aaaah, this looks more like it!

DSC_0802.thumb.JPG.c86057497f0ce534c7deac075eeaabbd.JPG

Crazy insane airtime all over the place!

DSC_0814.thumb.JPG.e28386014f39574572136b32bf4f9ee3.JPG

In the queue, there were some pictures of the "milestone" coasters.

DSC_0808.thumb.JPG.bc38326e32d381d951f214313da94d80.JPG

Balder is awesome! Still wondering why not more parks added Intamin Woodies..

 

What can I say about this beloved Intamin woodie? Well, I loved it too! It was an amazing ride with some of the craziest airtime I've experienced. The first drop in the back was amazing as well. It sits at 10th place in my top 10 coasters, but that's only because there wasn't any theming. And I love the full experience. But the coaster itself is absolutely amazing!

Next up was Mechanica.

Fantastic flat ride, with some good theming!

I actually got pretty soaked, because there is a wall next to the splash as you can see in the picture.

DSC_0833.thumb.JPG.93089d45d032bdfdb8cd5b6595c7149c.JPG

Just another ride.

DSC_0840.thumb.JPG.973c41ac0598bfdb096c2fc094ec4d60.JPG

The newest addition of the park: AeroSpin! Unfortunately, it was very windy that day, so I didn't manage to get a lot of spins.. If I remember correctly, the record for the most spins ever on AeroSpin was 70!

DSC_0832.thumb.JPG.c11ba85a965176a6cef8e89e94fc6a97.JPG

After all, I think AeroSpin is a great addition for this park.

DSC_0841.thumb.JPG.97f3e1e59c2ef0ccbb175114e073fd09.JPG

They also added this Venetian Carousel this year.

Great trip report! I love Liseberg, and all that it has, including the coasters and the flat rides, but especially

Gasten Hotel! I'm glad you got to "tour" the place. It is definitely worth the up charge, which pays the actors etc.

 

A lot of great photos you've taken. And one can never have too many photos of HELIX, I think.

 

Thank you for sharing your recent visit there.

Yes, Gasten Hotel was excellent! I really enjoyed it!

Thank you! And yes, Helix is just so photogenic.

 

I would go to Sweden or Denmark, but flying there is expensive, due to the low canadian dollar.

 

I hope you will be able to visit Sweden soon. Liseberg is a wonderful park, with a great selection of rides!

 

Anyway, great trip report!

 

Thanks!

Looks like you had a great time! I love Liseberg, one of my favorite parks. Great ride selection, great scenery and awesome operations! I do agree with you about the launches on Helix, I also wish they could have been a bit stronger. Still a great ride though!

 

Thanks for sharing!

Yes, I was pleasantly surprised about how beautiful this park is. & Exactly, the operations are fantastic in Liseberg! One of the best I've seen.

 

I do agree with you about the launches on Helix, I also wish they could have been a bit stronger. Still a great ride though!

 

Yeah, more powerful launches would have made this coaster even better. But as you say, it's still an awesome ride!

Such a great park! I need to get back there and ride Helix.

 

It is a lovely park! There's such a great atmosphere, with all the shops and the nice restaurants. And, of course, Helix! It's worth the visit for that ride alone.

The only negative point I can say about Helix, is that the launches weren't very forceful. They were fun, but there wasn't that "insane" feeling like you get on some other launch coasters. Still fun, though!

To be honest, this is how I felt about Helix in general. Don't get me wrong, it's a *GREAT* ride, and I'm not sure if it was possibly over-hyped by other people or it's just not really "my thing" but after riding some REALLY intense looping coasters like Kumba, Maverick, iSpeed, etc or launched coasters with AMAZINGLY FORCEFUL launches like Dodonpa, Formula Rossa, and Top Thrill Dragster, that I just felt a *little* underwhelmed by Helix. It could also be that Balder is in the same park, and I'm more of an airtime person than I am an "inversion" person, and to me most of the inversions on Helix felt very similar and not much variety. It's saving grace was the moments of airtime the ride had, but it still didn't compare to Balder across the park.

 

I think Helix is a fantastic, wonderful ride... but it just didn't "thrill" me as much as I was expecting it to.

I think that is very interesting, because I had an exact same experience as you, in the way it is definitely not the most intense coaster out there by any respect, but it is just such an awesome ride. I am more of an inversion person, but the two main air time moments just made the ride so much better. I found the air time on Balder too much and too repetitive as well, especially after a whole day at the park, after the ride had massively warmed up (it was also night) and back row. I felt ill and it never ended, just kept throwing my insides up over and over and over again. It was still awesome though, even on the verge of puke!

 

HELIX for the win!

Thanks for a great report - Liseberg is definitely one of my favourite parks, and Hotel Gasten is a fantastic park haunt experience!

 

I enjoyed Helix a lot, but agree that the launches are somewhat tame - they feel more like "speed boosts" to keep the ride going through the course.

After seeing a ride like Helix, I don't get it.

 

Do American parks PURPOSELY tell Intamin and other manufacturers not to make a great rides like this? Why do we get all the watered down B&M crap and these guys are getting 4500 feet of pure adrenaline rush?

 

 

Seriously though its prolly partly a cost issue, Helix cost around $35 Million USD. (I know the budget exceeded 250m SEK) Compared to Banshee, the tallest invert ever, that cost $24 Million USD.

I would say that it was indeed a bit overhyped, IMO. But it was still a fantastic ride. Not because of the intensity of the launches, but because of the complete package this ride has. It is probably the most "complete" coaster that I've ridden, if that makes any sense. I mean, this coaster has everything that a ride needs; there are some very intense parts (the Norwegian Loop for example), the moments of airtime that you get are more than great, a fantastic atmosphere in the queue (which is even better at night), some fantastic inversions and other unique elements. And that it hugs the terrain is only a bonus.

 

Would some more variety in the inversions and more powerful launches make this ride better? Of course it would, no doubt about it! But this ride doesn't need that to be fantastic, it already is. Helix is just totally fun, from the start to the very end. And that's what it is all about, I guess.

I honestly didn't think Helix was much better than some of the rides we've seen in the USA lately. Seriously, just about every other Intamin or RMC coaster I've ridden is WAAAAY better than Helix. I'm not exactly sure why Helix gets the over-hype that it does. The launches were weak and every inversion felt the same to me. Yes it was a "fun" ride, but so is Gatekeeper, for example. But neither ride blew me away and made me go "HOLYFUCKINGSHIT THAT WAS ONE OF THE BEST RIDES I'VE ***EVER*** ***EVER*** been on...." like I get when I ride things like: Maverick, Kawasemi, Wildfire, Kumba, Montu, Medusa, Texas Giant, Outlaw Run, iSpeed, Expedition GeForce, Goliath, Skyrush, Intimidator 305, Wicked Cyclone, El Toro, Balder etc, etc, etc....

 

The grass is not always greener, and while Helix might be green, I really really thought it was a "just slightly better than average" ride.

 

I really don't understand the hype over it. It's not amazing.... at all.

And that it hugs the terrain is only a bonus.

I would totally disagree. I think the ride does a lot of things, yes, but it doesn't do any one of those things REALLY WELL. It has a lot of parts, but none of those parts are impressive, IMO.

 

Let's see....

 

- It has launches - but some of the weakest launches I've been on of any launched coaster. Seriously Kanonen has a better launch!

 

- It has inversions - but they all feel the same and the lack of variety really disappoints me.

 

- It has airtime - but so does Balder. in the same park. And it does it MUCH better.

 

- It has fantastic atmosphere - Does it? I thought it was just "ok" - Sure it uses the terrain, but if you're not doing anything amazing on that terrain, what's the point? In fact, isn't most of the ride more up in the air and NOT close to the ground? I actually prefer Lisebergbanen's use of the terrain over Helix.

 

Not because of the intensity of the launches, but because of the complete package this ride has. It is probably the most "complete" coaster that I've ridden

 

I actually think it has one of the most INCOMPLETE packages of any roller coaster I've been on. Don't give me a coaster that does a lot of 'stuff', give me a coaster that does a lot of "AWESOME STUFF!"

 

Just because you have a lot of items on your menu doesn't mean you're a good restaurant.

But neither ride blew me away and made me go "HOLYFUCKINGSHIT THAT WAS ONE OF THE BEST RIDES I'VE ***EVER*** ***EVER*** been on...." like I get when I ride things like: Maverick, Kawasemi, Wildfire, Kumba, Montu, Medusa, Texas Giant, Outlaw Run, iSpeed, Expedition GeForce, Goliath, Skyrush, Intimidator 305, Wicked Cyclone, El Toro, Balder etc, etc, etc....

 

Unfortunately, I have not had the chance to ride as many coasters that are 'totally insane', yet. But I have ridden rides like Expedition GeForce, Balder and Goliath. And while these coasters are by far better rides than Helix, I like Helix more.. That's because I like a "better than average" coaster that has great atmosphere and a rockin' soundtrack more than I like an "OMFG crazy insane" coaster with no theming or atmosphere at all.

 

Everybody has their own likes and dislikes, and that's absolutely fine! Because that's what makes it all so interesting.

 

I mean, this coaster has everything that a ride needs; there are some very intense parts (the Norwegian Loop for example), the moments of airtime that you get are more than great, a fantastic atmosphere in the queue (which is even better at night), some fantastic inversions and other unique elements. And that it hugs the terrain is only a bonus.

I would totally disagree. I think the ride does a lot of things, yes, but it doesn't do any one of those things REALLY WELL. It has a lot of parts, but none of those parts are impressive, IMO.

 

I have to agree with you. It does a lot of things, but not all amazingly well. I like variety in coasters (once again, this is my personal opinion). I'd rather have a coaster that does a bit of everything and does that better than average; airtime, inversions, sharp turns, etc.. (like Helix), than a coaster that only has airtime after airtime, after airtime, etc.. (like Balder). Although, the airtime on Balder is waaaay better than Helix's airtime, Helix is far more 'complete', IMO. I hope that does make any sense.

 

To say it with your analogy; I prefer a meal with lots of 'better than average' food and am completely full afterwards, over a meal with only one item that is 'the best ever' and afterwards you are still hungry.
