Lisebergs Amusement Park,

open from 15th May to 15th September every year.
This is Sweden’s ”Coney Island” the most complete
open-air amusement park in the country, with thrilling
rides, feasts of fun and sensation with safety. Open
all day and closes at 11 o’clock at night. Open on
Sundays. There are scores of devices to thrill and
tickle: Auto-Skooter, the Cuddle-Up, the Big Dipper,
Tilt-a-Whirl (the only one in Europe), Knockout
(The New Boxing Game. All British.) Jackpots, The
Funny House, Airplane Races, Whippet Racing
Greyhounds, High Strikers, Scenic Railway, the
Kiddies Amusement Park, Jazz-Dancing, Fireworks,
Magnificent forest sights and beautiful flower-beds,
tea-saloons, several tip-top Restaurants, Cabaret Hall,
Shooting Galleries, several orchestras.

It is a merry place at any time, but when twilight
falls, its scheme of Electrical Illumination and
Coloured-Lights makes the Pleasure Park a place
of striking beauty.

Lisebergs Värdshus is an old fashioned Inn in the
centre of this pleasure park. It was in this house
that Miss Emelie Nonnen, an English authoress lived
for exceedingly many years and when she died here,
she was over 90 years of age. In by-gone days a
sugar factory existed here which was destroyed by
fire in 1808. The Park contains many fine Oak trees
hundreds of years old, which give a pleasant natural
charm to the whole place.
