Yeah, the weather have been pretty awful in the past few days (extreme winds combined with heavy rain, hail and snow, and to top it all of a 15 hour power outage :( ). Earlier today when I had a quick trip into Gothenburg planned, I decided to make a slight detour past Liseberg to at least get a new panorama, so that you all would have a better view of Liseberg and Helix than the image on the previous page from the web-cam.

However, it started out pretty nice with just a light snowfall, it turned nasty once I finally got to Gothenburg. The view was so short that I wouldn't be able to get any kind of view of Liseberg from the spot I take panoramas, so I just went up to the nearby parking garage and went past the staging area.

Helix in the Snow!!
Not much to say really, just to post some images of the little I saw..
I can on the other hand report, from what I have seen on the web-cams last week, that they have put in the station floors on either side of the track trough, and that they have made some more progress on the steel that will hold the pre-show and the switch track areas. Also they have made some great progress with the Pretzel loop area where they are forced to make a large slab to build it upon due to difficult condition, they have at least poured one portion of it so far. Also they have put in a lot of cabling for the second launch.

Onto the images:

Even if this is as close I can get, you really can't see that much

Lots of progress on the station

Nothing much have happened here

Just another load of supports and a few pieces of track since the last update I did

And this is it, nothing really, but it's at least something :)
Until next time!!

Have they been working on the station with snow? If so, very impressive!
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

"Snow" - Helix in slush puppy would be far more accurate

Fortunately it's still a weekend, we'll see tomorrow, but I guess that they will continue to push onwards. However ffter the storm on Thursday when some snow fell during the night didn't stop them from putting some new steel on the Friday :)

^ Yeah the snow that came today was murder, first it was nice and soft, then it turned all sticky and heavy, not fun at all to clear away from the drive when I got home.

Despite the blinding snow blizzard, I enjoyed these photos nonetheless. Helix is going to be a good ride by all looks. Thanks for sharing, Peter!

Peter, I guess you are the one here with most knowledge of Helix and Liseberg. Do you know if liseberg released any info on "green fire" more than that it was going to be tall and fast?
Would be really interesting to see the layout, don't really see why mack would want to keep it confidential.

That's some heavy snow! Hopefully some of it will make its way to the UK. I do love a bit of snow. Helix does look amazing in the snow, if they keep working in weather like that I will be very impressed.
