Sweden's Liseberg has started construction on what the theme park is calling "one of the largest water parks in northern Europe" — Oceana.
The €110 million park will feature 14 water attractions within its 3.3-acre indoor and one-acre outdoor area. The park will have a capacity of 1,750 guests and is on track to open in the first quarter of 2024.
"In addition to a highly themed environment, the park offers a lot of new features – and not just for the Swedish market. These includes the first six-person raft rides in Europe, and the highest mega-drop Master Blaster in the World" project CPO Thomas Sjöstrand said.
Along with the construction of the upcoming Liseberg Grand Curiosa Hotel, Liseberg hopes the addition of Oceana will help make what was the seventh-most-visited park in Europe last year into a year-round destination.
Oceana's theme will be "inspired by Gothenburg's history and the Swedish East India Company," Liseberg said in its press release. Sweden's Wingårdhs is designing the park and the water attractions will be provided by WhiteWater.
