Liseberg is a limited company owned by the municipality of Gothenburg (yes, there are politicians on the board), and thus they do public procurements.

The dark ride coming in 2020 got "leaked" in the same way. I say "leaked" because the information is pretty open to anyone.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I struggle to see them place it anywhere without gutting FlumeRide or something equally large in return, especially when the document specifies that it’s not a coaster.

Found this really interesting YouTube video "Mega Machines - World's Greatest Roller Coaster." It's a pretty interesting watch. Escpially around the 20 minute mark when they show footage from the MACK plant on how the roller coaster track is actually made. The little robot running around pushing metal into the machine was pretty freaking awesome! :lol:



(Hope this is okay to post.)

The hyperbole is unbearable! There were a couple of interesting bits, though, so thanks for the link.

I love these shows! They're so dramatic! Still gotta go with "no bolt guns, no Tatsu" as my favorite quote.

Went past Liseberg today. The demolish of buildings due to the construction if a train tunnel "Västlänken" under the city has begun. The sporting arena Liseberghallen is first to be demolish, the main entrance, Rondo and a parking garage is up next. Liseberg is also demolishing other building to make space for a parking garage due to the construction of the hotell/adventure water land that will occupies the parking space south of Liseberg.

Swedish amusement park invests 14 million euros in new dark ride

060319konijn.jpg


The biggest amusement park in Sweden will open a new dark ride in 2020. That has Liseberg attraction park, located in Göteborg, just announced. The family attraction of 14 million euros, which is going to be called Underland, is completely dedicated to rabbits.

"Visitors are invited underground to experience the secret world of the rabbits, with several fantastic scenes", Liseberg says. The mascot of the park is a green rabbit. Underland will be the first darkride in Liseberg in more than forty years.

The transport system, with eighteen carts for four people, is supplied by the Italian manufacturer Gosetto. The track will be 190 meters long. A ride will take about three and a half minutes. For the decorations, the park will work with the Dutch company P&P Projects. The moving figures come from the American company LifeFormations.

The attraction will be located in the Kaninlandet children's area, which means Rabitland. A theater could be found at that location. In total Liseberg invested 19 million euros in the themed area.

Director Andreas Andersen expects a lot from the new darkride. "We are setting a new standard for this type of attraction in Sweden," he says. An old darkride with fairy-tale characters was demolished in 2017. "We promised our guests that the replacement would be bigger and better, and we are now meeting that promise."
