In November, Liseberg announced that Kaninlandet (the Rabbit Land) – Liseberg’s children’s area – would be expanded in 2020. Today, Liseberg proudly presents Underland – the underground world of the rabbits – a major new family Dark Ride, as part of this expansion.
The Dark Ride will take guests underground to experience the rabbits’ secret world, and will be the largest investment in the family segment since Liseberg built the Rabbit Land in 2013.
In total, SEK 200 million will be invested in the children’s area in 2020 and the largest part, SEK 150 million, will be spent on this new Dark Ride. The Dark Ride will be located where the Children’s Theatre previously was located, and will take visitors through a number of fantastical environments.
“Since the Rabbit Land was built in 2013, our guests have got to know the characters above ground. What the rabbits have done underground have been a secret – until now”, says David Schofield, Creative Director at Liseberg.
Underland will be the 14th attraction in the children’s area and first Dark Ride that Liseberg has built in more than 40 years.
“With the introduction of Valkyria in 2018, we had to remove an old children’s Dark Ride, Sagoslottet (the Fairy tale castle). We promised our guests that we would replace this with something bigger and better. That's what we are doing now. With the new Dark Ride Underland we will set new standards for this type of experience in Sweden, ”says Andreas Andersen, CEO & President at Liseberg.
The first rides on Underland will take place in connection with Liseberg's spring premiere in 2020.

The classic roller coaster “Lisebergbanan” gets a makeover this summer with brand new trains and new station area as well as new façade.
Lisebergbanan opened at Liseberg in 1987 and was specially created for the Liseberg hill by roller coaster legend Anton Schwartzkopf.
It is an all-time favourite for the whole family at Liseberg and for many guests a visit to Liseberg is not complete without it. The roller coaster is widely acclaimed as one of the best family rides in the world – and one of the best rides created by the Schwartzkopf factory.
After more than 30 seasons, the Lisebergbanan has undergone a major renovation, including brand new trains, a matching station area and new themed façade..
"Lisebergbanan is one of our most loved rides and it deserved some extra attention. The new trains and new surroundings will complete the feeling of a traditional, and exciting, train ride", says Andreas Andersen, CEO & President at Liseberg.
