Update time!

Now that the Christmas season at Liseberg have opened, my brother got some pictures of the construction going on. He even got confirmation that Cirkus Expressen will be removed after Christmas to make room for the new unannounced coaster.

^Is that going to be a totally new coaster, or just a re-theme?

I'm not too sad to see Tornado go. It was really cool looking but didn't do much. Still, I have never seen another ride like it and I'm glad I got to ride.

^ The coaster will be completely new. It looks like they are rejuvenating their rides, much of the old stuff have been removed now.

There is another S.D.C Galactica (Tornado) at Fuji-Q that I'm aware of. But as you say, there isn't as many of them as you would think.

Thanks for the updates, Loefet!

Rabalder :lolr:, funky name.

Sounds like a word play of Rabarber (rhubarb), then again rabalder also sounds somewhat familiar just don't remember from where though.

I'm a bit surprised that they built a new coaster in that spot, but hey, new credit! :)
Hopefully will get there again next year, having missed out this year.

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

from the picture, new coaster has new entrance location as well.
that should help as where the current entrance is on a busy did could get crowded with parents waiting for kids to finish the ride. New platform location will hopefully make the walk way quiter as people will be hanging around the larger open area.

My brother have sent me a couple of new images. Looks like they are getting ready to remove Cirkus Expressen, and that they are pretty ready to install Hang-Hai.

that's kind of sad. it was my first coaster an I remember riding it with my mother and screamed like a baby (oh, I was a baby! :oops:)

but nothing lasts forever... hope the new coaster will be as good or better, but I must say: I really like those Zierer tivoli-coasters.
