Liseberg, situated in Gothenburg, Sweden, maintains its position as an exciting day out by investing in new attractions and placing focus on ensuring that the visual appeal of the park is kept fresh. In order to create a more exciting evening atmosphere, Martin Professional were brought on board to light one of the parks newest attractions, the Liseberg Wheel. The classic Ferris Wheel ride was originally positioned by the harbour, but has recently been moved to a new permanent location in the park. To mark the move, it was decided that an exciting lighting scheme was needed to give the ride even more appeal.


The legs, spokes and carriages of the Wheel have been lit in dazzling colour using the latest in Martin Professional’s LED-based lighting. Martin worked closely with Liseberg throughout the project, from

the initial idea through product selection and demonstration to installation and the final realisation.


“When moving the giant Wheel from its earlier position by the harbour to its new permanent location in the park, it was extremely important that we created a very visual experience,” says Liseberg Group President and CEO, Andreas Andersen. “The Wheel is our shop window to the city – and a new landmark in Gothenburg, which is why lighting it effectively was essential. Martin Professional made it possible for us to do that.” Martin created a three-layered scheme for the Wheel, with a general colour wash, pixel dot twinkle effects and moving graphic projection. LED-based Martin Exterior 400™ and Exterior 410™ luminaires were used to decorate the Wheel, which are mounted on four


freestanding poles and at the base of eight support legs. These IP65 rated luminaires emit over 5000 lumens of light, operating at just 139 watts of power.


Each spoke on the wheel is lined with 600 colour-changing VC-Dot 4™ LEDs on each side, whilst 1200W Martin Exterior 1200 Image Projectors, located on the poles together with the Exterior 400™ and 410™ products, provide a final layer of lighting for the Wheel.


The customisable characteristics of the lighting system allows for a variety of appearances for the wheel, which can be changed to suit different occasions. Lighting design for the installation was a collaborative effort with Liseberg’s Creative Director, David Schofield, and company Mediatec, the lighting supplier and systems integrator on the project.
