Gate to Liseberg was opened for the first time this Saturday at 12:00. The program is well accumulated during the day and rounded off with a significant fireworks at 22:00.
But some folklore does not include information manager Julia Vasili.
It's usually a dedicated crowd that comes, but then it's a bit of time dependent on how big the crowd is, she says.
And the weather could be better. After several days of summer temperatures and sunshine, mercury has fallen and rain has returned to Gothenburg.
But the weather must not be too good, from the point of view of Lisberg. It became clear last summer, which was a disappointment with the number of visitors.
– "Lisebergsväder" we usually talk about the most optimal. It's an average gray time when you don't want to stay inside or sleep at the beach, says Julia Vasilis.
Overall, thanks to the great interest in Halloween and Christmas in Liseberg, 2018 became a good year for the theme park.
Of those who insulted the rain on the 2019 Premiere, Rebecka Halling Liedholm, 37, and her daughter Vera.
– I like to go to Hoppalång and Flygis, she said.
Friends Kristina Johansson, 64 and Ann Ernberg, 65 – both pensioners – have other favorites:
– Because it was a swinging plane, but today it is probably whirlpool and Kållerado. We are often together with grandchildren and Lotta Liseberg. It's a great place to go!
Lisberg's hope is that more people in Gothenburg will choose to visit the amusement park spontaneously in the future, rather than just go downhill.
New territory opened
Large sums have been spent before the season to develop the port area that opens up in the spring premiere. SEK 32 million is invested in stage, restaurant and public areas around Hamnkrogen.
– Dream has been a festival area with a variety of entertainment, food and drinks. And now we are there, says Julia Vasilis.
Some areas are weatherproof with large brands. There will also be two new outdoor bars and three seats. The restaurant's offer is expanded and renewed.
