Looks like it will be a hit for Liseberg! I really need to get out to this park.
Is this a trick question?

I hope this will be a big hit for Liseberg, than what Bling was for Blackpool.

^Yeah, I skipped it in 2006 (as I said earlier, not my thing). But y'all have fun!

I think the problem with Bling was more how unreliable it was than an issue of popularity. Im sure since then though developments have been made it is a much more reliable ride. Im sure it will do great for the park, I mean its Liseberg so its going to be awesome.

I know more about donkeys than women!

Mechanica looks both graceful and positively gut-wrenching in that video. I can't wait to visit Liseberg for the first time this August.

Has anyone seen the official Mechanica merch yet? The name and logo are so metal. I'm probably not going to be able to stop myself from buying an entire suitcase full of t-shirts and hoodies when I'm there.

In the park watching it spin around. Guys... it spins fast. I'm really really hyped! :lmao:

The noise it makes! I don't know why but i love it, it sounds really like a angry monster waiting to give people a ride.
But the spinning! THE SPEED! Watch the videos again and remember that its 30 meters tall.
Also, iv'e been told there's an "OMFG" surprise about it they haven't told anyone yet. Don't know if this is a false rumor tho!

Guys, it spins really fast. Airplanes in Denmark fast.


Btw, a quick thing, the area around Mechanica has also been renovated. Asphalt has been replaced with beautiful scenery and pavement, and the house with all the arcade and such (Behind mechanica), looks really sexy, new facade, dark tones that really blends in well with everything. I'm not going to take a picture of this until its all done, but this really makes this side of park look great!

(Also, this year they have Mario Kart in the Arcadehouse! Hurraaay)

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Looks like it will be up and running opening day 25th of April. Liseberg has sent out invites to newspapers to come and try it out on the 23rd.

While this isn't my sort of ride I'm sure guests will love it when it opens. I can't blame the guy in the POV for holding on tight though :lol:. Also it is quite funny to me how small Kanonen looks compared to this.
