Have been quite busy over the past few days, so thanks for keeping this thread up to date: alejon and Ap0ptosis!!

^ Well I wouldn't call it light, but it ain't dark either, sort of dusk, so you won't get the full effect of it all. But it will be great during the last weekends of the summer season. However if the plans of having the park opened during Halloween comes true then it will be epic :) (depending of course which rides will be opened at that time).

Liseberg Christmas season update 1
Had the opportunity to go by the park yesterday, to check out the Liseberg winter market as a start of this years Christmas season.
Liseberg is really nice during this time a year. Loads of stalls, food, shows, a few rides, animals and of course loads of epic lighting.
A real must visit for everyone that really want to have a really nice time in Gothenburg during the winter.

Not much Helix on this update, but since the steel erection is suspended during the winter season, then there isn't much to report, apart for some nice images of the station that keeps growing.

This update I will focus on the park as a whole, next one though I will go and check out all the stalls and see if I can get to taste some not so "normal" foods that are available. This time I had a nibble on some bear sausages, smoked reindeer meat and had a glass of birch juice, but more on that after the next visit to the park :)

So onto all the images for you to enjoy!!

Oh, I wish, I wish we had something like that here
during the holiday season. I envy all the parks that do
a festive makeover, and Liseberg is no exception.

Thanks for sharing all of this, Peter. And...um....
maybe Liseberg can keep this all up when TPR gets there?
In June? :wink:

It always intrigues me when a coaster is built on a hilly terrain or on a hill side such as Helix. The design of it and the colour scheme is great for the park. I do have a question about Mack rides though. How smooth are their coasters, or in this case their launch coasters? The only ones I have ridden are runaway mine trains and they are quite rough on the transitions.

Blue Fire makes most B&M's feel rough.

I find that strange that the north American parks don't do this. But I think it might be the difference in type of park that plays a big role. I mean I would never ever imagine a Six Flags park doing the same thing at Liseberg, Tivoli, etc. during the winter season. Too much of a hassle for them, especially seeing that most of the park that have a big winter season tends to be located in city's and have more than just loads of attractions put up in the middle of a field (I would also want to say that there are exceptions to this as well). It's sort of a niche market that the parks here have started to exploit to extend the season to ultimately get more visitors in the park. However, Gröna Lund have tried to also be opened during the winter (after Liseberg started their winter season), they threw in the towel after just a few couple of years, since there is already a massive winter market next to it so they couldn't compete with it.

I know that people in the upper management are reading this thread, so you might give them some ideas ;)
But unfortunately since you are coming in June, then it won't be dark enough to get the full experience. :(
