I get that the point of the rides is to make it as tame or thrilling as you want, but when they state that it will be a fast wild ride guaranteed I do have my doubts about it being something that can be controlled.
But I think the park knows that the crowds would not be happy if they got one of these to replace the crowd favourite that is Kieppi.
-"All good things come to an end, so does Kieppi's career in Linnanmäki. Come enjoy the last kieppi's (kieppi is an untranslatable word for a flip) during september-october."
So apparently Linnanmäki is getting rid of their HUSS Booster, which is odd because: A: It's only 13 years old B: It's extremely reliable and has barely any downtime C: It's extremely popular
bit late on this one but 13 years old is not long for a stationary ride but since it was designed to travel, where it would operate for like a 1/10 of the amount of times it does at a park because of travelling and waiting between rides surely its just become very worn out. Samurai at Thorpe Park has had issues due to this along with Ripsaw which is now gone.

Linnanmäki's booster afaik wasn't actually designed to travel, it was dug into a pit with a different setup than the travelling boosters and is now being retrofitted for travel.
According to the building permits to the Helsinki city council, Linnanmäki's ride is a technical park heavy rotation
(the rides most insane point starts at 2:15)
Definitely a complete surprise, these have only been sold to travelling showmen (although the park does make a park version) and it's absolutely insane, unexpected, not trending, the last one probably was bought in 2004 or something...
It's like they pulled the same trick as canada's wonderland
Oh well, I guess I won't be riding any coasters any time soon... Within the next 10 minutes anyways. Best: Katun & iSpeed - Mirabilandia, Formula Rossa - Ferrari World, Oblivion - The Black Hole - Gardaland, Stealth - Thorpe Park
The ride has begun testing and will be opened to the public on the 28th when the park opens at 16:00. A select group of raffle winners were chosen to test ride the new ride an hour before the park opens, of which there will be footage of.
Luckily the ride isn't running on a "park" program and has gone full speed! The rotating arm is black and white, the seats are red and the spinning platform is black with yellow dots. Here's hoping it'll play music.
