I like the colors a lot. Not your usual theme park, bright, "Hey! Look at me!" colors. Much more along the lines of themeing.

Thank you Liseberg.

The park is really beautiful in the autumn dusk, with all the lighting and decoration.

The three scary walks that tickles all of your senses :)
Vinden: Is a classic horror theme with eerie children singing
Smitthärden Hotell Gasten: The classic ghost hotel @ Liseberg, but now infected with stomach flue, all with natural smell and vomiting personal :)
The Experiment: A Japanese horror movie with a mad scientist with the intent of making a super human out of body parts.

And in front of the big stage there is a themed zone "Mardrömmen" where Liseberg has placed a Haunted House-ride from a German fair and after dark the zombies will emerge.

Great coverage of both the Press Day, and this recent trip to the park! The stuff above a few of the walkways look really nice (lanterns and umbrellas). And a suspended dark ride (Haunted Mansion) I haven't seen photos of, in some time! Always wanted to ride that, if I ever came upon it. Night time shots, I love, and these are really great ones. Awesome use of lighting throughout the park, it looks like.

And...I want that Kids' Meal! Sounds devilishy gruesome and tasssty.

Thanks for sharing all your great recent photos of Liseberg, Marcus! :devil:

Liseberg had great success with it's Halloween event this year, 290 000 guests visited the park during the 16 days of the event according to a press release. The revenue of the event rose drastically as well, 75% compared to last year, though it should be mentioned that the event lasted three more days this year. Liseberg sees Halloween as a step closer towards being a year round activity, something it will be when the new indoor waterpark and hotel opens in 2021.

Before that is the Christmas season that starts next Friday!

Liseberg CEO Andreas Andersen is the first vice chairman of IAAPA this year(November 2017-November 2018). During this year he will blog in English at
reflections.liseberg.se. He's already been bloging in Swedish for about 5½ years now at Lisebergblogg, where he gives his own reflections on the park, and the industry, generally an interesting read.

Liseberg also posted this video about it.

And the arrival of coaster parts!


I must say, I absolutely love the colour scheme chosen.

Here are the long past due photos of the Christmas season premiere at Liseberg. The opening was delayed 2 hours due to a EU-leader summit that more or less closed down Gothenburg for three days.
