Photo TR: Opening day Helix at Liseberg

Recommended Posts

So today I got to visit Liseberg for the press opening event of Helix.

 

This new Mack installation has some pretty impressive specs:

Top speed of 100km/hour

2 launches, 1,38km long

capacity of 1350 riders/hour

7 inversions and 3 weightless moments.

 

Great addition for the park, feels like it's spot on with their target group for this ride and i'm pretty sure it will provide the things they are expecting of it.

Fun, long ride which is very very reridable. Nice pops of airtime and inversion and it brings a smile to your face.

I like a countdown, especially if I don't have to wait that long

Phenomenal pics Hanno! Helix looks awesome. The Swedes appear to have a winner on their hands. Thank you as always for sharing your amazing photos! I have said it before, but the TPR day I spent at Liseberg in 2009 is still my all time fav park visit day, and I can't wait to get back there.

I certainly can tell this is not an American trip report, only 1 person I would even call overweight at all.

 

Are the restraints pretty accommodating or is like the old Intamin restraints?

 

Love the photos, amazing looking coaster.

 

Hey Carowinds build a 300 ft version of this!

^^Haha I was about to mention that picture to say the same! There really must be some decent air there!

Hey Carowinds build a 300 ft version of this!

That would be just awesome! I've always dreamt of a massive looping ride!

 

Great photos and great video Hanno!

This thing looks stunning

Trains? Awesome, Station? Awesome, Restraints? Awesome, Ride? Awesome. Amazing project here.

 

Just when you think man if Lisberg only had some kind of terrain twister launch coaster with inversions then that place would really be special they go and build something like this.....

Just one question, for those who've ridden Helix: how does the second launch feel? It looks like it gains speed but then closer to the end it doesn't seem to be accelerating much (as it's quite long). So I wonder how the forces feel.
