Liseberg rides – a history in a picture. In the background is Balder – Liseberg’s all-wooden rollercoaster that was the major ride of 2003. You can also see, travelling left to right, a train on the Lisebergsbana (1987) and travelling right to left a “log canoe” carriage on the Flume Ride (1973). At the bottom of the picture is a piece of track belonging to the Helix, this year’s attraction.

Liseberg rides – this year’s major attraction is the Helix. You can get close to the rides within the Liseberg funfair at several points, but a bright, sunny day tends to make for deep shadows. Nice cloudscapes though.
