^^^ Since Liseberg is owned by the city, then they would likely have the first pick of the area since most of the board of directors are politicians that have lot of weight in the ruling in/around Gothenburg. The locations is really ideal for the park, the south side is towards an industrial area as well so it's no problem either. And the absolute best thing is that this land is located as far as it is possible from any residents in the area that can complain about noise. But then again, if there is space they need, then an Aerial tramway to some completely different area is an option that Liseberg have used in the past
^^ Yeah, it's really bad that they don't have Max in the park, especially since the Burger King joints are more expensive in the park compared to the other ones in the city... I haven't really seen the wheel in person from that angle but when coming into Gothenburg from where I live then it looks epic.
^ This is some much needed space for the park, and now we might finally get some large thrilling coasters!!
Not sure if this have been posted on here, but the current CEO of Liseberg, Andreas Andersen have started a blog on where he write some really interesting things that is not only valid for Liseberg but also a lot of other parks in the world. It's really worth a read. Mind though that it's in Swedish...
The new wheel looks lovely in the park, Peter. I assume it's like one of the Japanese wheels I am so fond of riding - slowly - continuously - moving? (sorry, didn't read anything about it till now, here)
And so much expansion space availablle to the park!
Thanks for updates, Peter. I really think that after Tokyo Disney Sea, and Europa, THIS is my 3rd park in my Fave Five, heh heh.
Today Liseberg announced their plans for the next year, which would also be the parks 90:th anniversary since it opened for public 1923. On the 80:th birthday they got Balder, but this time it's all focused on the children and families. This is the largest investment the park have even undertaken, a total of 23 million € is what this present will cost, about twice as much as Balder. They are doing a complete revamp on the kid section of the park and making it into a full fledged "Kaninland" (Rabbit land) for the parks own mascot. The Revamp will completely transform the whole area and many rides will be replaced/revamped/moved to new locations in the area.
I forgot to mention that Liseberg recently opened another attraction in the park. They did a overhaul of their old children boat attraction, the new one have loads of scaled down landmarks that are typical of Gothenburg, but on a negative side then the ride isn't free roam as it used to be but all boats follow a certain route through the area. I guess that it have to do something with the throughput of the ride...
