Went into Gothenburg yesterday, and hanged out on the roof of a parking garage for half an hour today to see if I could grab some shots/vids of some testing action...

But they were only doing some slow clearance checks :( on the brakes or something during the time I was there.

Still it's going to be awesome!!!


New video from above, dropping from the top this time.

Looks like it slows down quite a bit before it enters the building below, but then again it's an empty drop car at the moment, with some additional weight it will take a bit longer to slow down...

Can't wait for them to release the date for the Pressday :)

Glad to see they're using the I305/Tornado straps on some more projects!

I wonder if it brakes higher up than Drop Zone because they don't want that giant air cushion to come blasting into the building underneath?

Sorry to say that it'll not rotate on the way up.

I will be going to the press launch for Atmosfear this Wednesday, so if anyone have any intelligent questions for the Liseberg management then post them here before Wednesday morning and I will try to get them answered!!

Easiest would be to take the train from Stockholm and Gothenburg. Go to www.sj.se to book a ticket, prices range from 95 SEK for the slow trains 4-5 hours or from 150-300 SEK for the fast trains about 3 hours. The cheap tickets are non refundable and are available 90 days before the day of travel, there is a limited amount of cheap tickets so prices will rise depending on demand and time. From the central station you could walk to Liseberg if you have the time, or take a bus, tram or taxi...

Hi Loefet, I will be taking my first trip to Liseberg in June with the ECC, just a few questions for the management

1) Is there a reason why Atmosfear was not planned to Rotate on the way up?

2) Are there plans to remove one of the S&S Drop towers due to there now being 3 tower attractions in the park?

3) What is the official Height of the drop on Atmosfear (ie. from the maximum height of the ride car to the station) as all of the figures which have appeared online appear to be above sea level...

Hopefully these can get asked, been wondering them for a while!

Thanks!
Andrew
