So this concludes this report, I got my brother to ask about the 2010 project but the answers he got were very vague, so I guess we have to wait and see. I really looking forward to go there in about a week, so expect a TR by then.

LiseBerg is such and amazing park. Those pictures reminded me it's been far too long since I've been there (propbably 06 or something) I need to get something done about that ;)

Rabalder looks like it fits well. We never say no to a new credit ;)

Nice pictures! No summer without Liseberg! I hope I can go there now, in May. And I am very curious to see what happens in 2010. Maybe it's time for a expansion at the south carpark and a new rollercoaster? I read about it in the local paper. But it must be a rollercoaster that does not sound too much, maybe an indoor rollercoaster?

And the Swedish women's team was there to inaugurate Liseberg's new game "Straffsparken". You can read it in on of Liseberg's press realeses http://www.newsdesk.se/pressroom/lisebe ... tur-286541 . Of course the girls went the rides when they were there. Yesterday they played a match against Brazil at the new National Arena "Gamla Ullevi". So I think everybody were in Gothenburg this weekend.

^ There was an article in the local paper (GP) stating that the planning have begun again, but don't expect anything there next year, my money would be on some new ride (possibly a coaster) on top of the mountain since there is a lot of space up there now when Kulingen is gone.

Also in that article in GP they said that they also were interested in the building behind Balder (that were a Saab gearbox factory) that now is empty, if those plans get a go ahead then Liseberg can grow a lot. With space for some big coasters and rides.

Balder will be available in one of the new four stamps in Sweden issued May 14. (The other three are Turning Torso in Malmö, the Kaknäs Tower in Stockholm and the ski jump Lugnet in Falun).

Wow I'd like to get one of those Balder stamps! Will the park be selling them by chance?

I think that the stamp will be sold in the park. But it will be sold in stories all over Sweden. The booklet of stamps will be called "Swedish highlights" (Svenska höjdpunker).

I read on a Swedish news site Liseberg can now start planning their development of the park. But the area (carpark today) will not only include attractions in the future. Also a new a new parking garage, a new hotel, and a "air tram".
This project would be decided later this year. Liseberg hope that this project is clearly about 12-15 years(!).
