I'm seriously eyeing this place up for a sneaky, late summer trip. Anyone ever been?
How do you, like... y'know... get there?

Just found a vid with a pov, but with some. Dark off ride shots showing the trains in all their beauty ;)

I agree with Tom - simply one of the best coasters I've ridden :)

Liseberg

by Tom » Thu Oct 16, 2014 9:48 am

It's been known for a while that Liseberg were looking to bring in a Zierer Star Shape. They've just released some photos and a teaser video. It looks pretty epic in my opinion, but given that it's at Liseberg this is no surprise.

Image

http://liseberg.com/en/home/Amusement-Park/Rides--Attractions/Mechanica-2015/

In the sweltering heat, amongst heavy smoke and burning fire, something takes shape from the soot covered hands of the blacksmith – a mechanical construction that's never been seen before. With an alchemist's knowledge, he creates the perfect element, and when the machine is set in motion a force awakens ...
Do you have the courage?

You can't just build 20 million coasters each year unless you are owned by a very wealthy backer who is willing to pump money in not expecting a return anytime soon. You need a more sustainable growth like Merlin try to do.

Just out of interest have you ever been on a Star Shape before?

From viewing a few videos of Star Shapes and they look pretty damn intense. So definitely not a 'meh' investment in my eyes.

Liseberg have already had some pretty epic rides for 15+ years prior to the opening of Helix. Lisebergbanan, Balder to name just a few.

I really like the sound of this - Star Shapes are brilliant flat rides and I think it will be a welcome addition to what is a fantastic park.

I fear that 600PPH may be quite a low capacity for a new and undoubtedly popular ride ...
Ride Count 2017: 83

That's why I'm classing it as a "meh" ride. Low throughput+TTheory=Annoyance...

So you would be happy with an awful ride as long as it had good throughput? Not the best logic I've heard before....

I would be more than happy if one of the Merlin parks got one of these as I was pleasantly surprised at the intensity when I ride Air at WW.

I got on Bling before it closed and it was the MOST intense flat ride I've ever been on, most certainly not Meh :D

Air is a stunning, well operated ride. This will no doubt be the same, albeit on a programmed cycle! The best part about this announcement? IMAScore are doing the soundtrack!

I'm really glad to see more parks investing in Zierer though. They really are a fantastic company!
