So now that we get new trains and a renovated station, will we also get magnetic brakes? , that has been in the talks for many years.

That's a fair assumption. I recall that when Gerstlauer did the refurbishment on Sooperdooperlooper at Hersheypark (which also included new trains), they added a string of magnetic brakes at the end.

The new trains is built from the specifications of the original blueprints.
The old break system is still there, because there is no space to mount magnetic breaks on the train and Stengel designed the ride experience like this :) :) I forgot to ask if they have upgraded the control system on Lisebergbanan.

Today I hade a early errand in Göteborg and with the sunny Easter weather I took this photo from my usual spot.

Liseberg also announced a competition that you can sign up for...

The competition: Four teams will compete under 120 minutes to ride the 4 big rollercoasters (Lisebergbanan, Balder, Helix & Valkyria) in the park (a SuperFour). Every time your team completes a SuperFour, the team gets one point. The team with the highest score after 120 minutes wins.

Today it was the premiere opening of the summer season.
After a period of sunny and warm weather, the weather gods decided that rain was needed....
Four teams competed for the glory to open the season. It was team Valkyria that was victorious and got to do the honors. And then the rain started (I wonder, if team Blader won, would it have been sunny?).

Go team Valkyria

The staff of Liseberg was greeting us






New decoration inside the station of Lisebergbanan

How are the new trains compared to the old ones? I'm going on Monday so I'm very interested in seeing how they change the experience.

They was only running one train on Lisebergbanan, so the queue was very long. So I can't give you my opinion, but from a good source, the new trains is a improvement.

But now we have a place to make offerings to the roller coaster gods :) and that can still include beer, hammer and nails....
