Liseberg is a global frontrunner for accessible amusement parks
With 3 million annual visitors, Liseberg is one of the most popular amusement parks in Scandinavia. Liseberg is strongly committed to accessibility, as reflected in the park mantra: “Not everyone can go on all the rides, but we have rides for everyone”.
Raised ramps for wheelchair users have been erected next to the park’s concert stage and many performances are narrated or sung for visually impaired guests. Additionally, Liseberg provides an accessibility database webtool for guests, and its staff is thoroughly trained in assisting guests with physical disabilities
Each year, Liseberg gives 13.000 free visits to socially disadvantaged children. For ‘The Special School Day’, the park is reserved entirely for children of special-needs schools so that they can enjoy Liseberg in calm surroundings. Lastly, Liseberg works to recruit people who otherwise struggle to find work. In 2018, 37 young disabled people were offered a job at the park.
Liseberg has taken a variety of measures to improve its inclusivity and accessibility (11.3, 11.7,)
Liseberg works with local employment services to hire disabled youth at the park (8.5, 8.6, 8.9)
