Balder is a wooden roller coaster at the Liseberg amusement park in Gothenburg, Sweden. The coaster opened in 2003 and one of the best roller coasters in Europe.
Balder has twice, 2003 and 2005, been voted Best Wooden Tracked Roller Coaster in the world in a major international poll. The ride is inspired by Norse mythology tales where Balder is the god of light and purity, son of the god Odin and the goddess Frigg. The infrastuture is so huge that is one of the first sights you see arriving Gothenburg when you drive from Malmo as we did in June 2014.
