The Tragic Accident at Rainbow Liseberg

Liseberg in Gothenburg, Sweden, was rocked by a tragic accident when a Rainbow ride collapsed while in operation yesterday afternoon. The Swedish police, forensic unit and fire department have all launched investigations to both determine the exact cause of the accident, and to identify any potential victims in the wreckage.

The Rainbow ride, which opened in 1985, was a classic steel roller coaster that had riders ride in looping cars, travelling up and down on track overhangs. The ride had come under increased scrutiny in recent months due to “technical irregularities” that an inspection recently uncovered. It is not yet clear, however, if these irregularities are related to the collapse.

  • Police Investigations: Sweden’s police have begun a full investigation to understand the exact cause of the accident and the identify potential victims.
  • Technical Investigation: At present it is not clear if “technical irregularities” uncovered by recent inspections of the ride are related to the accident.

The tragic accident at Rainbow Liseberg will have long-lasting consequences for the families of the victims, and it has shed a light on the importance of safety and caution no matter where you are. While this accident has caused tremendous grief, we can only hope that this tragedy will ultimately lead to a heightened awareness for safety and security protocols in amusement parks and public facilities alike.
