Liseberg Amusement park is one of Scandinavia’s most popular tourist attractions, and whilst not competing with the umpteen parks in America and the UK for sheer scare-the-crap-out-of-you thrills, is still a fabulous destination for any visiting family. It embodies more of the ‘park’ than thrills label often hosting large pop concerts, firework displays and entertainment for the more sedate visitors. ‘Spaceport Liseberg’, the futuristic tower that dominates the park offers superb panoramas of the city from the tope of the rotating viewing galley that travels to the top of the tower at regular intervals. Considering the prices of many amusement parks these days it’s surprisingly good value and thankfully you won’t have quite the massive waits you experience for star attractions in parks back home.
Liseberg is the biggest amusementpark in Scandinavia. Take a ride with the big wooden coaster, or in the logs of flumeride, experience a feeling of weightlessness at Uppskjutet, or go up 125 metres in the Liseberg Tower for a great view over the city. The atractions are many more.
The amusement park opens in the end of April.
This is one of the most popular amusement parks, or maybe the most popular one, in Sweden. I adore this park, it's so much fun and has something for everyone. There's rides for kids and daredevils, concerts, games, restaurants, museums, bigscreen cinema, theatre, shops and more! I really recommend everyone to go here at least once. After that, you'll want to come back again. ;)
Balder is the biggest wooden roller coaster in town. The screams and yells sure make one decide to back out. But wait a minute, if that is so, you may have missed out the top mark for thrills and excitement.
Biggest in Scandinavia, this park is calculated and voted one of the most visited and popular places in Sweden year after year after year. A typical amusement park with white-knuckle rides, childrens rides and traditional rides but what makes it so special is its setting in a leafy park by a hill (the rollercoaster ride is like a very fast trip through a forest). The rides on top of the hill have a great view of the city. There are also different restaurants and fast food outlets as well as a gambling hall. It is open late April to late September and around Christmas and some people come just to walk in the park with all its flowers. Swedish pop artists sometimes play on its outdoor stage. There is also a sports arena and a theatre attached to it and they own many hotels and camp sites in town so you might find yourself already in their company if you're there on a package tour...
The Paris Wheel is 25 metres in diameter. It has 20 gondolas and can seat 120 guests at the one time. The views are breathtaking over Liseberg. In 1967, the Paris Wheel was opened and in 1995 it went through a thorough renovation
Lisebergs Tornet is the height of fun at an overwhelming 125 metres. 65 guests can make the ride at the one time. The first stop is the 'Rabbit's World', where they have built their own private Liseberg. The trip then ascends to swindling heights that offer fantastic views of Gothenburg. This ride is relatively new opening the summer of 1990.
The Hangover ride is exhilarating sensation. Even at the height of 42 metres, there is no possibility of taking in the scenery as the ride reaches a top speed of 90 km/h. Your body during the ride is subjected to 5 times its own weight in gravity and the ride will also tip you upside down no less then 6 times. It is a 300-metre ride that circuits twice, once forward and once backward. There are 7 carriages and 28 people can ride at the one time. Hangover is a world first where the passengers ride tête à tête.
Kållerado or 'Shooting the rapids' opened in 1997 and is the largest venture Liseberg has undertaken, ever. Liseberg and Vattenfall AB have joined force to present this spectacular water adventure called Kållerado.
It consists of being slung around in a large round boat that is travelling at lightning speed down charging rapids. The ride passes through Nordic wilderness with waterfalls and magic forests. It is 600 metres in length and takes 5 minutes to get through the rapids.
Calculations have been made and the rapids are the equivalent of 1080 running baths a minute

Liseberg's Storgatan or High Street consists of two blocks, where the architectural history is built up of ten buildings that each tells their own story. They are rose coloured and built low to the ground. They were erected in 1923 in conjunction with the inauguration of Liseberg. The styles have become a milestone in distinguishing Liseberg's architecture.
The High Street is not only a stroll through the past century's Swedish architecture, but also a great shopping street, with a multitude of great little boutiques.
Ever wondered what serious acceleration feels like. This ride takes precisely two seconds to fly 60 meters up in the air. It therefore subjects your body to four times its own weight in gravity. The feeling is so mighty that you will reach the top feeling weightless. Only for the serious daredevils
This park suits not only kids, but also those of us that loves to play, and act like children. If you love rollercoaster, bumper cars etc, you can't miss Liseberg when visiting Göteborg. Well.. even if you don't love this, you shouldn't miss it, because it's soo much fun!
I am not sure if Lisiberg is bigger than Tivoli in Copenhagen;anyway,this is the biggest Park in Sweden.
