A fire at Liseberg amusement park's upcoming waterpark Oceana in Goteborg, Sweden, caused evacuation and uncertainty regarding casualties.
The fire at the Oceana waterpark, slated to open in the summer of 2024 at Liseberg, one of the Nordic region's biggest amusement parks, erupted causing a large plume of black smoke to cover Sweden's second-largest city, Goteborg. It spread across several waterslides under construction, leading to the evacuation of nearby buildings. Despite the extensive damage, officials have no information on injuries yet. The construction of Oceana was already notable, with a budget of 1.2 billion kronor ($10.6 million).
