Ah OK, then a big thanks to you for letting us know about it!!
So this makes the image a lot more "official", but it's still an early concept (in my mind) of what can be done with the space that Liseberg have since it haven't been officially announced yet. I'm also pretty sure that this expansion won't happen for a few years, since these things needs a lot of planning to get right, so that it will work with future park expansions. I have posted my views of it on the previous page, and I really think that some things might need some work to be just right for Liseberg.

Anyway, very nice of you to share this, I really hope that you can keep us updated on this and other things in the future!!

^ Great to know :)

Liseberg posted a few new images on the construction blog, in my opinion then they don't really show much progress so I won't post them here. There is on the other hand some good information released in the text, like the construction of the Station will start really soon, so there might be something more interesting than some piles of stones lying around in the future. Also the trains will be arriving sometime next week, and be put on display beside the fountain just before the escalator up to Atmosfear if you are coming from the main entrance.
And seeing these news, then I might consider putting of this weeks update till next week when the trains have arrived. Since there isn't that much that is going to change for the rest of the build, except for some more footers have been completed. So until then..

BTW, here is the link to the newest official update so far: http://projekthelix.se/foton-fran-bygget-del-2/

Why do I still have a donkey title???

The zero car looks great, though it doesn't surprise me as large Mack coasters typically have great looking trains, like Manta (SWSD) and Blue Fire.

^ Hopefully there will be more to see later this week :)

Anyway, last week were a bit strange at Liseberg.
The new attraction Högspänningen (tower/ferriswheel ride) got shut for some unknown reason with no specific time frame on when it will reopen, most likely waiting for some parts to arrive, a rabbit got molested by some guy which then threatened the security when they came to deal with the incident and then there were an attempted kidnapping in the park, some random guy grabbed a 10 year old kid and tried to leave the park. Just hope that there will not be any more of these incidents in the park in the future, but this is one of the reasons why going during the vacation period might be a bad idea.
