Above: Slänggungan – Liseberg‘s carousel for adults and kids still has its share of riders – here with thunder clouds boiling up behind.
Below: The ferris wheel (Pariserhjulet) – with an ad for local ball-bearing manufacturer SKF – dates from 1967 and doesn’t really seem to have the same power of attraction.
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.

A corn poppy flower (Papaver rhoeas) and a couple of poppy seedheads growing by the wayside.
