I'll miss Kanonen, it better will not be going to the US. It would be nice if a small park in Sweden or somewhere else in Scandinavia could takeover the ride.

Loke is a great ride and a big recommendation. The restraints feel about the same as the restraints on Helix and are therefore very comfortable. The problem with this is that it has a bit less airtime than its predecessor (SpinRock), but I feel like Loke is more about the sense of speed and freedom, both of which it does magnificently. It may not be for the biggest adrenaline junkies out there, but it adds depth to the park by being a ride for adults that doesn't throw you around or go upside down. Also, the fact that it's not super intense in airtime lets UppSwinget keep otherwise lost merit. All in all a great addition to the park!

I totally missed that this was lap bar only until now. That makes this ride even more awesome.

If I remember correctly, when you traveled back from Tusenfryd to Gothenburg with me and my brother, we did a stop at MAX :)

Actually that was me Marcus! Bill wishes hah (sorry Bill...next time). And more Max burger at Liseberg is not a bad thing. Mmmmm! The park is looking better than ever and thanks for this trip report. Can't wait to get back there to revisit my fav park day ever!

Liseberg announce yesterday that they are now working with hotels in the Gothenburg area to give us Liseberg-PRIO. If you book rooms at a hotel specified on Lisebergs homepage together with your tickets to the park between 8/7 to 13/8, you can enter the park from 9:30.

What are Fridays in September like? Do they get fairly crowded? We wanted to visit on a Thursday as they were open on Thursdays in September last year, but this year, they aren't.

It's most likely the weather that will decide how crowded the park will be.
