Liseberg opening day.

Postby Loefet » Sun Apr 29, 2007 12:41 pm

So Liseberg opened yesterday, with a new attraction and added safety.
Me and My brother decided to go there to do 3 things.

1 Get our Annual Passes.
2 Ride Uppswinget, the new S&S power Screaming Swing.
3 Test out the latest edition of the Accelerometers and their harnesses.

So we left home about 2 hours before they opened, it's about a 30 minutes ride to Liseberg. But we wanted to be sure that we would be first in line, so that we wouldn't have to be in a huge line to get the annual pass and by that missing the opening of Uppswinget.
And on the way there we did a little detour on the way there to take some pictures on our usual spot.

In the park we met up wit the TPR/old CF member Olov.

The park was running great for the day, little brake-downs, not so crowded and the queues were short (about 5-30 minutes).

Ride count:
Uppswinget 4 times.
Lisebergbanan 3 times.
Balder 3 times.
Kanonen 1 time.

Now on to the pictures.

There it is finally done, and Lisebergbanan looking ace in the spring.

Soon my precious I will ride you again.

I could have been there today :b But confirmation was in the way - WHY??

Anyways - Uppsvinget looks awesome on that hill. It looks bigger than it is. I must go up there some day.
I sounds like you had a great day...

Any screens of Kanonens Accelerometer data? I would love to take a look at that.

they have a net right over the queue... Rush doesn't. Are we trusted more?... I'm not! :P



Great photos! I hope the cycle is longer than Rush's (about 3-5 full swings)

I did a measurement on Kanonen, but the Accelerometer malfunctioned. The problem is a bad solder on the sensor, it have been temporarily fixed (until we get a new sensor chip) and I might be able to get a new measurements next weekend.

I Love Eli Manning!

Nä, men, va fan!
Medan ni var där så var jag på Sci-Fi Mässan och hadde ett stop med Billy och Verne.
Ok, I didn't have any beer with them, but had nice chats.
I'm thinking of going there next weekend, though very unsure. It will be one of those spur of the moment kinda things. Might go just to get the entrance card, but no riding... And interesting additions. Roof over the 3 swings of 'Bergbanan.

Anyways, maybe we'll meet some day.
