We're spending four days out there, two days for Liseberg (I'm betting Helix is worth the two days at the park) and the other two days are for cultural stuff. I doubt you'd need more then four days in Gothenburg itself.

I'm doing the same.

Grona Lund doesn't really appeal when one of its biggest coasters is a ZacSpin and I can't really find anything amazing to do in Gothenburg.

Grona Lund is a lovely (if cramped) park, and I found Twister (super-twisty Gravity Group woodie), Kvasten (surprisingly-enjoyable Vekoma family suspended) and Zacspin (a bigger 32m Intamin Zacspin) all worth riding. It also has a rough Schwarzkopf and one of the best ghost trains I've been on in Tuff-Tuff Tåget!

Whether it's worth the 470km journey over from Gothenburg though is debatable...

Its just such a shame the park is sooooo out of the way!

Not really, it's pretty much right in the city? Way less of a mission to get to than Europa Park.

Can get a plane from any London based airport straight to Gothenburg...

Then public transport it to the park in the middle of the city...

Job's a good'un, much easier access than Towers... Probably takes about the same time too (assuming plane leaves at the same time as train from Euston to Stoke)...

EDIT - As some pics to entice people to make the effort, go abroad, experience other parks, etc

Ease is less of a trouble for me, but potential costs, time and finding people to go with are bigger and less easily-solved problems to deal with...

2016 can't come soon enough for me...

That support is rather ugly, but the track itself still looks fab.

To be fair, if the worse thing about this ends up being a dodgy-looking support, I don't think anyone's really going to have heart attacks over it.

Apart from that hideous support, this looks like an amazing coaster with all those curves, twists, turns and that dark green track.

I think Liseberg just entered my top 10 list of paths in Europe I gave to visit.

Edited for accuracy...

I'd only get mildly irritated at Chessington, Sochi gives me the opportunity to ride Blue Fires yellow brother AND be arrested. :D

And to make this on topic... Yay, go Liseberg. I can see my hotel I'm staying in.. just praying we have a room overlooking Helix. That would be so so so sweet. :wub:
