Mechanica is Liseberg amusement park 42 attractions
Gothenburg, Sweden: In spring 2015, Liseberg amusement park will open Mechanica, a high-speed attraction that spins riders through 360 degrees – 30 metres up in the air.
Challenging even the most daring, Mechanica can best be described as flying at high speed in a pendulum motion while gradually spinning round on two axes through 360 degrees.
This attraction will be five metres taller than SpinRock, will swing 60 degrees more than Uppswinget and its seats will be free to rotate through 360 degrees, like the old TopSpin ride. “We know that many of our guests want more attractions of this type. The attraction we have chosen is also one of the very best available in its class,” says Andreas Andersen, CEO of Liseberg.
Mechanica, indisputably is one of the most impressive attractions at Liseberg, in terms of ride experience and concept.
“We want to offer our guests something that goes beyond the 90 seconds of the ride itself,” explains Andreas Andersen. “Through a combination of unique design, carefully selected music and inspiration draw from eighteenth-century Gothenburg we are aiming to create an all-round experience. It will be a strange machine that mixes contemporary and historical elements, like something straight out of a fairy tale.”
With a wide range of attractions, Liseberg is one of the best amusement parks in Europe for thrill seekers. It has some of the top roller coasters in Europe, including Helix, Lisebergbanan and Balder. The arrival of Mechanica the number of attractions available in the park will reach 42. “There are not many parks in Europe that can compete with Liseberg in terms of ride experiences. Mechanica will push us even further up the rankings in the high-adrenalin ride category. But while we have these really challenging attractions we also have Rabbit Land for families with young children. Liseberg has something for everyone,” says Andreas Andersen.
