^Well the middle seats definitely gave plenty of consecutive rides during ERT. I think I rode Balder for about half an hour without having to get out of my seat once!

And sorry Thad but you're wrong. The back row is definitely the best seat on Helix. ;)

Yes, thats what they are. They are not for sale, only a benefit if you buy tickets online some day before your visit.


I also say back row on Balder and front row on Helix.

Had an amazing day at Liseberg today' and got my 100th credit on Helix! I was there with my family from 11-5pm and then it started to rain so they wanted to leave. If it was up to me, we would've stayed till it closed! Anyway, here's a breakdown of the day and the rides I went on:

Helix x3
Balder x3
Lisebergbanan x2
Kanonen x1
Rabalder x1
Stampbanan x1
Atmosphere x1
Log flume x1
Uppswinget x1

Helix got better every time I rode it. I ended up liking the back the most especially for that initial drop out of the station, you just fly out of it! I'd put it in my top5 steel coasters I've been on, definitely met expectations.

I didn't really know what to expect for Balder but wow was it good. I think it's my favorite roller coaster I've ever been on. I would just laugh the whole time, it was so much fun and smooth as glass. If I got to stay till the park closed, I probably would've tried to get like 10 rides on it. My favorite seat was also the very back on this one too.

But yea, overall, awesome day and Liseberg is a wonderful park. I'll definitely go here again some day. =)

For those of you who know what the "Oculus Rift" virtual reality system is (If you don't, you should definitely look it up), someone put Helix into the program, as seen here in one of "Jacksepticeye"'s videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6h7OqePyeoo&list=UUYzPXprvl5Y-Sf0g4vX-m6g

EDIT: Warning, the video is verbally explicit.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Just visited Liseberg for the first time yesterday and it lived up to expectations. Initially wasn't hugely impressed by either Helix or Balder when the park opened but there was a stupidly big difference in intensity once they'd warmed up in the evening.

Balder really makes you laugh hysterically, that first drop is incredible in the back which is where we sat nearly every time. Constant airtime pops, lacks the scale of El Toro but very much like Phoenix on steroids. Amazing!

Helix once running well was also incredible and I don't use praise much being a pessimistic Brit, after dark those airtime hills almost matched Skyrush in intensity, the launches are nothing special, there to slightly increase momentum really. First drop out of the station is best experienced in the back. This ride puts Blue Fire to shame, impressive Maverick like hairpin turns at certain points too. As everyone says, the POV doesn't do this coaster justice!

These were so good we're heading back on Sunday before our flight home to get some last minute rides in as i know it's going to be a while until I ride something that'll impress me as much.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!
