Building work has begun on a new year-round, indoor water park at Swedish theme park Liseberg in the city of Gothenburg.

The €110m park – called Oceana – is the second part of Liseberg’s expansion project, marking the park's centennial in 2023.

The theme of the park has been inspired by Gothenburg's history and the Swedish East India Company – combined with Liseberg's own unique DNA.

Designed by Swedish architects Wingårdhs, the park will cover an area of indoor area of 13,600sq m and a further 4,000sq m outdoors. It will have a capacity of 1750 guests at any one time.

In total, the park will feature 14 separate attractions designed and manufactured by WhiteWater, ranging from toddler pools to thrill rides.

Thomas Sjöstrand, CPO of Liseberg's Expansion Project, said: "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."

Oceana is set to open in Q1 2024 and will complete the second phase of Liseberg's planned expansion.

Last year construction started on the first part of the expansion project, the park-integrated Liseberg Grand Curiosa Hotel.

The building of the hotel and water park are at the heart of Liseberg’s plans to become a year-round destination.

"We live in highly uncertain times, but both Liseberg – and our industry – will get through the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic," said Andreas Veilstrup Andersen, CEO of the Liseberg Group.

"The Liseberg expansion project does not just represent an investment to counter this crisis – but an investment in Liseberg’s next centennial."
