The Myths & Legends minisite
is now live, after prematurely becoming active yesterday which was the source of the early reveal. There's an English version of this morning's announcement available here
Owen has already summarised some of the key details, but here are a few additional things that haven't already been covered...
The area, which includes Balder, will be rethemed to take inspiration from Nordic mythology with Loke effectively battling with Balder. There wasn't really too much said about Valkyria, although I expect we'll hear more next year.Loke
Loke will replace Spinrock, a Zamperla Discovery (although similar to a KMG Afterburner), providing a similar ride experience but with greater capacity.
You are cunningly lured into the mighty giants' dark lair – high up in the air. From the precipice you are thrown into battle. And there can only be one winner.
Buckle yourself in and sit facing outwards with your legs dangling from the spinning gondola. At the highest point you reach a breathtaking 42 metres in the air. Scarily close to Balder – and much higher!

Interestingly, Andreas Andersen also teased that there were also exciting things in development for the years beyond 2018, so it looks like Liseberg has an exciting future ahead of itself with it seeming to now be going down the theme park rather than amusement park route.
