Due to the layout of Valkyria the fairytale castle will be removed in the end of the season and the waveswinger will be moved.

Thanks for sharing the video! Loke will definitely give some interesting views of Balder that we have not been able to get before.

I wasn't really planning to visit Liseberg this year with Valkyria opening next year, but given how great Liseberg is I could easily make the trip every year. The people of Gothenburg are really lucky to have this amazing park in their city!

According to GP, ( http://www.gp.se/nyheter/göteborg/klassiska-lisebergsattraktionen-skrotas-1.4246612 ) it will actually be a new wave swinger, although the look and feel will be the same.

As for Sagoslottet, the general public seem to be somewhat sad/disappointed to see it go. Many have grown up riding it, the ride is originally from 1968 and was changed into its current form in 1985. But as Liseberg stated a new dark ride aimed at children is in planning, according to Göteborg Direkt http://www.goteborgdirekt.se/nyheter/snipp-snapp-snut-sa-var-sagan-slut/repqdu!GAZfJxqxIGWWk7p5RM@7Q/ it will be placed close to the rabbit land, I'm not sure where it would fit there though to be honest.

Personally I feel that Liseberg has really changed a lot the last 10-15 years, mostly for the better although some of the nostalgia is gone.

After joining the local #MarchForSience in Göteborg, I payed Liseberg a visit in the sunny spring weather on the summer season premiere.

I know that I haven't been that active on TPR lately due to I have been busy at work and my car got rear ended by a truck last month :( and the doctors advice was to take it easy for a while. But no neck or back pain :)

Great pics!

Loke look absolutely massive, and the surroundings look great aswell. Really looking forward to riding later in the summer. This together with Ikaros at Gröna Lund it looks like another great year for being an enthusiast in Sweden, we've been really spoiled with great additions lately.

Loke really does look huge! God I love giant frisbees.

Thanks for the pics. I am not a fan of the current VR trend at all, but I totally love the idea of using it to preview a new roller coaster. Glad you are OK after your accident :)

Great report on the area around Loke and the ride itself.
Love the park. Love the park. I repeat: Love - The - Park.

But...."MAX"? Is that a local or European franchise? I don't remember seeing one on any
past TPR tours. But then, I remember most of the traveling, I was looking at everything
BUT hamburger spots.

I'm just curious, thanks. :smile: And glad you're okay, after that rear ender.

:cool:

OOPS! It's okay. I looked, and I found the Swedish MAX chain. I like it's menu!
