^ You should ask to switch of all the lights of the surrounding attractions, and then take the same pic! But it's already pretty amazing as it, thanks for sharing. ;)

^I remember them saying (when Helix opened) that 2016 would be big too but I wonder what attraction would make them remove these three.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?

It says the new investment will be ready for when the park opens in April next year. That's not a long time, considering they also have to remove rides. Will be interesting to see what the plans are.

Apparently there is no natural flow for people in that area, and that's the main reason for the makeover. But also the area is old and the attractions have been there a long time, over 80 years if you combine their time in the park.

The main rumor for a while have been that a Gerstlauer Sky Roller is coming for 2016. Since both tower rides are going it might actually be a tall one, the one going to Canada's Wonderland is going to be 135 feet! There's also another two rides coming that wasn't known before today, but my guess is that they will be more family oriented.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

OLD news :D


I guess that the announcement of the new attractions will come at EAS2015. I will be watching the Liseberg booth.

Hey guys!

I'm going to be visiting Liseberg for the first time on October 10-11. From the schedule it looks like these are the final days of the summer season (though I'm sure it won't feel like summer!)

What kind of experience can I expect from the park this late in the season? Will the majority of the rides be running? Any idea what queues are likely to be? Worth allowing myself both days here as I have planned currently?

Cheers!

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

How many ND's did you have to stack for that? Or did you use a mounted one, haha?
