Sheesh, I feel bad for poor Jukebox. It looks kind of shoehorned in, out of place between Valkyria and Loke.

This has got to be my favourite dive-coaster layout ( at least conceptually). I like that it starts and then just keep going to the end... A splash-down would have been cool at the end... Because it adds a cool dimension to any park that has it.
That's how I feel about dive-coasters in general... They're big, impressive and add a ton of spectacle even for people not riding.

And on a side note, and at the risk of ticking some people off.
These Ima-scores do nothing for me.
A nicely themed area with a great theming does not need speakers with wondrous music to sell the idea.
I like the physicality of being in the presence of a roller-coaster, and I want to feel and hear that physicality.
Adding Hans Zimmer-cloned music just adds a dimension of fake-ness I don't need...
but I'm difficult like that, and to each his own.

Anyway, can't wait to get to Liseberg next year and ride this baby.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Looks like a pretty good ride! The view from the edge of the first drop is going to be amazing!

A good new dark ride will be another good addition in the future!

That's like the 4th time that wave swinger is moved to a new location. Anyway, I'm super excited about all this new info. It took a minute considering that we had the full layout for Helix 2 years before it opened.
Top Parks: DisneySea. The end.

Unfortunately, the premier of Loke must be postponed for a week, Liseberg announced today through a press release. They write that some details such as decorations, programming the ride and training staff are not completely finished yet. This is due to a delay in the beginning of the construction process. :( :(

Liseberg just announced that the opening of Loke has been delayed with one week until April 29, they still have some finishing touches and need more time to train the staff. Some testing can be seen in the video below, although when operating Loke will swing approx. 30 degrees higher.

Haven't been on a Zamperla Giant Discovery yet but Intamin's big Gyro Swing is by far the best frisbee style ride I've been on. Look forward to this one!

UGh. One of those ^^ did me in during the TPR 2012 China Tour, I think.
Probably a Happy Valley franchise park - I've blocked out where I rode it.

And I skipped the one in Tusenfryd, when TPR returned there in 2014.

Great for taking video +/or photos, not for riding any more, unfortunately.

Liseberg actually did a competition to celebrate the opening of Loke where they took some winners to the Happy Valley park's Loke style ride. I can't find the video anymore though the title might of been Swedish.

^Here's the video!



Liseberg also posted a new video on Loke, with some POVs. Looks really cool the way you swing up against Balder!
