Guess I'll have to keep that in mind for tomorrow. I looked at the app and Lisebergbanan was 30-40 minutes when even Valkyria was posting 0-10 minute waits.

^ Congratulations to Andreas. I had (another) great time at Liseberg, during the 2014 TPR Scandi Tour. So I know he was definitely part of that great visit. Continued success for him.....and Tivoli too, now that they're getting him, LOL! :smile:

^^This is so sad, Liseberg has seen one of the best (and biggest) expansions of the last years. I hope the innovation can continue. Well thanks for everything Andreas!!

I always feel bad for seasonal parks that have bad weather on their big opening days! I'm glad the Swedish people are tougher than we are and made the most of it!

Hi, I'm new here but have been followning the forum for a while! I found a really interesting video talking about the Liseberg's next 5 years. So I wondered what your guesses/thoughts are for future attractions at Liseberg and also, when do you think the next roller coaster is coming and if so, what type?

Link to the video if you want to check it out:

Factoid: Lisebergbanan was Anton Schwarzkopf's favorite coaster he worked on. I hope the new trains still have the classic smooth and flat-ish seat pads and not buckets. The side-to-side/lateral sliding action on a Schwarzkopf coaster is a fun feature. Liseberg is my #1 must-get-to park.

edit - oh well, the new trains do have bucket-y seats as Gerstlauer does these days. There are probably only 6 people in the world who notice these geeky details anyhow.

The new trains are exactly like the old ones, including seats and the ratchet lap bar mechanism. The new trains are manufactured by Zierer, the same as the old ones.

^For some reason I thought Lisebergbanan had these same seats, perhaps I was incorrect:

Which were on many Schwarzkopf and Schwarzkopf related rides over the years. These are the relatively "flat" seats I was referring to, which give great opportunity for lateral movement (hello Mind Bender!) This photo is from Lobster at Six Flags Great America; Fiddler's Fling at the same park has the same seats.

Either way, those new trains looks fantastic! Kudos to Liseberg for maintaining their classic coaster.
