Lonely Planet review
Scream yourself silly at this mighty theme park, southeast of the city centre. Sweden’s largest, it draws over three million visitors every year, and sometimes it feels as though they’re all visiting at once!
There’s a number of blockbuster rides, including the 90km/h wooden roller coaster Balder or the stomach-churning Kanonen, where you’re blasted from 0 to 75km/h in under two seconds. Most recently, the Liseberg Tower has been transformed into the mind-numbing AtmosFear, Europe’s tallest free-fall attraction. Enjoy the views during the 90-second ride to the top, and wish you hadn’t during the three-second, 116m free fall back down. Softer options include carousels and fairy-tale castles, as well as summertime shows and concerts.
Each ride costs between one and four coupons (Skr20 each) per go, but it probably makes sense to buy a pass (one/two days Skr310/430). The Göteborg Pass gets you into the park for free, but you’ll still need coupons for the rides and games. Opening hours are complex – check the website. To get there, take tram 4 or 5, and enter from Örgrytevägen or Getebergsled.
