On Sunday I took my nephew, Viggo, to the amusement park Liseberg in Gothenburg. We’d gone there last summer and he has talked about it since. So I thought it would be a fun thing for us to do together before I move to another country and won’t get to see him much anymore.
It was a great day, with lovely September weather, and Viggo was enjoying himself immensely. He dared to go on more rides than I had expected as well, which was great. Like, he dared to go on one of my favourites, called JukeBox which is pretty fast and spinning. He’d just hit the height requirements for the bigger rides (not the roller coasters though), so he was quite satisfied.
Getting to Gothenburg is a two hour drive, so we started the visit with waffles for lunch. (And boy do they over-charge you in these places!)
Since I went on most of the rides with him, I don’t actually seem to have a single photo of him on any of them. We did get him a facial drawing though. We bought the “small drawing”, and expected it to be a half-face one (like top half, like a mask). As it turns out, it was just a little bit around one eye, so we kind of wish we’d paid for the “full one”. Still, Viggo was happy cause he sort of looked like Spider-man!
There are a lot of lottery wheels and small games spread throughout the park as well, and Viggo managed to win a huge chocolate on one of them. 2 kilos! He also won a squirt gun on a toy wheel, so he had quite some luck!
Look at the size of that thing!!! (There’s actually not a huge chocolate inside though, but instead 40 smaller bars. Which is probably for the best!) At that point we’d been on a water ride, so his spider-man drawing was quite smudged. He said it looked cooler now! Hahaha!
All in all, I think he had a great day – and I’m glad that we got to do this together before I move away.
