Sweden’s Liseberg Amusement Park Comes Alive with Meyer Sound D-Mitri

In celebration of its 90th anniversary, Liseberg amusement park in Sweden has completely renovated its children’s area to create Rabbit Land, a 10,000-square-meter play area where children can interact with animals and rabbit-costumed actors. To carry the actors’ voices, sound effects, and incidental music throughout the park, system integrator One Two Sales of Gothenburg has outfitted Rabbit Land with Meyer Sound’s D-Mitri® digital audio platform and Meyer Sound self-powered loudspeakers discreetly placed throughout the area.

“Meyer Sound’s integrated solution was a perfect match for Liseberg’s expansion,” says Ola Lindstedt of One Two Sales. “They wanted a supplier with extensive experience in themed entertainment, which Meyer has worldwide. Of course, they also wanted high-quality sound and reliability.”

At the heart of the system is the D-Mitri platform, which provides all show control, audio playback, mixing, matrixing, and DSP functions using five processors. D-Mitri connects to six UPJunior-XP 48 V VariO™ loudspeakers nestled in the park’s Rabbit Hills and Cupcake areas, with three 500-HP subwoofers providing low end. In addition, seven UP-4XP 48 V loudspeakers are mounted underneath the park’s monorail track to extend coverage and provide sound effects.

The system was designed and specified by Lindstedt in consultation with Dan Rigtorp, Liseberg’s technical director.

“The D-Mitri platform contains all the necessities, including integrated Wild Tracks playback,” says Rigtorp. “We particularly like the fact that you can tailor the workspace on the iPad controller app to access the D-Mitri functions any way you like.

“We looked at other solutions, but decided on Meyer for several reasons,” continues Rigtorp. “The speakers have a small footprint with their unique low-voltage solution. In addition, Meyer Sound offers us a single source for everything, including support and education.”

In addition to Wild Tracks playback of programmed music and effects, the system carries the live voices of rabbit-costumed actors who perform in interactive shows. The actors use six Shure ULX-D wireless microphones in conjunction with six channels of Shure PSM 1000 in-ear monitoring, which are used to time their antics with the Wild Tracks playback. An HP network with six WiFi access points allows total system control anywhere throughout the attraction.

The Rabbit Land development represents Liseberg’s largest single investment, with a total cost of just under 200 million Swedish kroner, or about $31 million USD. Established in 1923 and owned by the municipality of Gothenburg, Liseberg attracts about three million visitors annually with 40 rides and attractions.
