IMG_0434 (Copy).jpg
This park is my favorite, has many of my favorites and I really recommend! I'll see you some other time my love!

Great Shots Jeremie! It's always cool to see photos from a foreign park! (BTW, thanks for the Lisebergbanan photos!)

Unusual how they did not build the S&S towers next to each other.

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

^ that's because they weren't built at the same time. Uppskjutet (the Space Shot) was built 1996 and was "given" to Liseberg by Vekoma as compensation for Hang Over, the Inverted Boomerang. Hang Over had some technical problems that made it stay closed for another year and there for Vekoma payed for Uppskjutet (worth 8,1 million SEK, about 1,1 million USD). Höjskräcken (Turbo Drop) was built four years after (2000).

Anyhow, great TP and really nice photos of the rides! I'm looking forward to Christmas at Liseberg. I haven't got time to go there yet...

B&Man No problem! Lisebergbanan is my favorite Schwarzkopf, it is an honor to take pictures of such a unique ride!

tanthonyam I guess it is a little weird. But keep in mind Lisebergbanan is all over that hill, and it might of been hard to build them together, even when built at separate times. Although it is cool how on one turn from Lisebergbanan, it goes around one of the towers.

Lalle555 Thanks! Yea, I was in the shop looking at the post cards, and I saw how they made a Christmas Tree out of the sky tower. It was cool, and I hope you enjoy your time! But do the roller coasters operate in the Christmas even?

Thanks for the feedback!

Great Photo TR!

Liseberg looks like an absolutely amazing park. While they don't have the largest collection of coasters, I've heard nothing but praise for the ones they do have. Plus, the other rides, theming, and landscaping look great. This is one park I am determined to get to sometime in my life.

As a proud SmartCar owner, I can tell you that it is NOT, in fact, the best car in the world...but I love it anyway. ;)
