Liseberg 21-22 June 2014

Sun May 18, 2014 9:46 pm

Hi all,

Further to some discussion at this weekend's event, a few of the team have booked a weekend trip to Liseberg to ride Helix and the rest of the awesome coasters, and we'd like to extend the invitation to you guys.

http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/vi ... =2&t=67771

This ride looks like one of the best in the world. I have done Blue Fire in Germany and Manta in Cali and absolutely love this coaster type - and this looks twice as good.

Here's the details if anyone else would like to join.

Flights with Ryanair (gulp) - £54 per person (at time of booking):

From London (Stansted) to Gothenburg (City) (FR 966)
DEPART (STN)
London (Stansted)
ARRIVAL (GSE)
Gothenburg (City)

Sat 21 Jun 2014
06:55hrs
Sat 21 Jun 2014
09:50hrs

From Gothenburg (City) to London (Stansted) (FR 967)
DEPART (GSE)
Gothenburg (City)
ARRIVAL (STN)
London (Stansted)

Sun 22 Jun 2014
17:35hrs
Sun 22 Jun 2014
18:35hrs


Hotel Gothia Towers (opposite park):

Sat 21 Jun 2014
1090SEK / £98 based on two sharing / £49 per person (at time of booking)
Standard Limited View Room
Breakfast included


Park Entry is £37 for unlimited rides and there is a McDonalds next to the park for those on a real budget!

Hope as many of you can make it as possible.

There's a shuttle bus from the airport to the city - minimal charge I believe.

The shuttle bus from airport to the city costs approximately £12.50/person for a return ticket.

The hotel above is literally across the road from Liseberg, but it's worth noting that there are cheaper hotels slightly further afield for those on a tight budget.

Getting the earlier flight back as it really is a one day park being open until 11pm.

Will do some sightseeing on the Sunday, then leaves enough time to get home not to be knackered for work on Monday.

So excited for this - I've bought a new wardrobe and everything :lol

Who will be around on the Friday evening in Stanstead?

Laura, everyone I've spoken to is buying online this week and including helix, balder and lisebergbanen as the complimentary fastrack. A few, including myself, intend to do the scare attraction but don't be paying until on the day as it's easier to plan.
