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

Thanks for reminding me, though. I think. :wink:

Loving the color of Loke!

That one at Happy Valley accelerates insanely fast compared to the Giant Frisbees by HUSS. Plus it doesn't vibrate at the bottom of the swing. :lover:

Today I got a little bit late to work due to Media day @ Liseberg :D
Liseberg had as always booked the sunny weather for the media day and Loke looked great :)

Great looking ride! All that with (what looks like) comfy lap bars. That's the thing I can't stand on similar rides at Kings Dominion and Cedar Point: those bulky, annoying shoulder bars.

Liseberg is near the top of my "must get to" list.

It definitely deserves to be there for Baldar and Hotel Gasten alone.

Thanks for the report about Loke's media day. This isn't my sort of ride, but I might give it a shot.

Giant Frisbee's have a rattle? I've never noticed on the NA models, one I literally rode Saturday. But I also didn't notice Banshee had one because I cared more about the giant amazing inversions than a slight shake.

And yeah, I need to go to Liseberg, my family has Gothenburg as one of the final contestants on where we go in Europe either this summer or early fall. But there is still London, Berlin, and Dublin and I've been vouching for Berlin and London.
