Revamp and hotel upgrade for Liseberg Theme Park in Sweden

liseberg wheelThe owners of Sweden’s most visited amusement park have confirmed a major upgrade which will add a hotel and indoor waterpark. Work on the projects at Liseberg Park in central Gothenburg will kick off in 2019 and is scheduled for completion four years later.

Originally opened in 1923, the expansion will be in time to celebrate the 100th birthday of Liseberg. The new facilities will make the park a year-round destination instead of the seasonal one it is at present. CEO Andreas Andersen explained that being able to open all year would increase the amount of visitors and reverse the negative trend of the past few years.

Liseberg’s new hotel will incorporate 453 guestrooms and be a family friendly option with direct access to the waterpark. Blueprints drawn up by Wingardhs show 31,000-metres² of floor space and key features including a spa, two restaurants with a total 800-seat capacity and a smaller cafe.

Water Technology Inc is the developer in charge of setting up the new waterpark. This ambitious project will likely see Liseberg gain the moniker of the Rolls Royce of waterparks and make it the finest in Scandinavia and possibly Europe.

The historic Swedish East India Company themed attractions are set to amaze. Ancient galleons, 10 different waterslides and chutes, exciting kiddies’ play zones and a collection of pools are sure to excite. An added bonus is an onsite eatery for up to 400 diners at one sitting.

The cost of adding the hotel and waterpark to Liseberg is around the €200 million mark (£180 million). Although located in the middle of Gothenburg, Liseberg bought up an adjoining plot of land four years ago which will accommodate the expansion.
