Here are some sunny greetings from Pontus, the guide at Liseberg for the TPR Scandi-trip.
It's working!!!
Most of the theming is in place, so I can say that we are more than ready for the Media day (tomorrow). Unfortunately I will not be there and say hi, but I'm sure that "Lond" (Marcus) will have the chance and take some great pictures on the ride and the surroundings.

Mechanica is an updated version of the Star Shape from Zierer. And with updated, I mean faster.
The ride is great! The best flat ride I've ever been on. The music is epic, powerful and stands in the same high league as the score to Helix. IMAscore has done it again :b

I am really excited and curious of what the GP will think of it. Will it be to much for them? How many of them will puke?

I hope that I will meet some of you during the summer season

wish us luck!!
Best part of my job, you are the first one to try :p

Media day for Mechanica @ Liseberg.

The event started with the fire dancers and Andreas who talked about how Mechanica were created from ancient ideas about making a machine that allows one to lives forever. When Andreas pushed the start button it burst out fire and flames from the Mechanica.

Mechanica was better ride then I expected and provides a unique ride every time, it was a big difference in the intensity of the ride depending on where on the arm you sit.

In addition Mechanica a new candy store, a store that manufactures and sells chocolates and truffles and a new restaurant that serves locally produced sausages was displayed.

Spelhuset got a new entrance that match Mechanicas design.

Lisebergbanan, Hanghai, Flumeride and Helix was aired before the premiere on Saturday.

Thanks for the excellent media day report.

If I had it all to do over again I would have been a fire dancer.

Any ride opening that involves fire and explosions is a great opening! Glad to hear positive reviews for the ride and I hope its more reliable for the park than Bling was for Blackpool.

Looked like a great opening for Mechanica. And the theming is wonderful!

And I know David would kill for those two plush purple chairs in the candy shop, lol.

And :lover: Helix, too. Thanks for covering and posting the opening, Marcus.

Video (in Swedish) of kids getting to try out Mechanica and what they thought of it.

Pros: You get to go really high and spin a lot.
Cons: The ride is way to short and the seats are a bit too hard
