Great to hear, thank you! You are allways welcome back whenever you have time for a visit!

It was an amazing day, and probably the best working day I've had since I started to work at Liseberg in 2008.
I know that the next trip is planned for 2016, but 2016 is just too far away. So I really hope that I meet someone from TPR a little bit sooner :)

Pontus, you really helped make our day all the more wonderful! We really appreciated what you did for us - especially going out of your way to guide us from credit to credit at the start of the day! I look forward to the next time we meet up at Liseberg!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

The next day (day 3) we started with a drive to Skara Sommarland.

Home to one of the weirdest coasters in the world... Tranan :)

Compared to my visit in 09 the park added a spinning coaster.
Such a fun place to be.
Summertime at the waterpark has to be pretty good :)

Anyway, picture time

How many times did I hit my head on the trip you ask? I forget after number eleventytwo.

Great photos again Hanno. My highlight of that park other than Tranan was the guy at the shop going to anwser the phone but picking up the scanner for the cash register and saying hello in to it! :lmao:

the ghost seems to think there is a "Donkey Fairy"

Great photos as always. Tranan just looks all sorts of messed up, but in a good way.

I still can't really figure out how I felt about Tranan. It was so strange yet fun it still has me confused.

Superb photos Hanno, its great to be reliving the trip and can't wait to see what you captured at Grona Lund!

I think Tranan is the strangest, scariest family coaster ever. I like it, but it is a bit unnerving because you feel so exposed.

As always Hanno, great pictures.
Did you not get any photos of Gruvbanan (otherwise known on that day as "the ABBA coaster" :lol: ?

Tranan was a very unique and fun coaster. I'd like to see a longer version of the coaster, because the amount of time experiencing the unique elements was ultimately minimal on Tranan.
