Weird that it has had vibrations, I rode Helix 5 times in the beginning of June, it was silky smooth! My guess is that it has something to do with the weather? TPR visited when it was rather cold. (Also Helix was down, not allowing it to warm up).

I rode it last September and it definitely had vibrations. Glad they took care of it!

I never thought the vibration was that bad when I rode Helix last June. Might of had something to do with where I was sitting in the train too. Glad to see they worked on it and hopefully taken care of it this Winter.

No, I rode it a bunch of time during my two days, and I always had some vibrations, sometimes more intense than others, though. Had the same problem with Alpina Blitz, but Blue Fire is butter smooth.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Thats good then because that ride had some shocking vibrations last year, which for a new ride was extremely disappointing. Blue Fire had no vibrations at all from what I remember so if they have managed to match that then thats fantastic news for the ride, I just hope it ends up working as a long time fix and not a short term fix.

I work at Helix, and my supervisor old me we needed to test it because of the vibrations. I tested each train, three times, once in the front, middle and back. the middle and back part on train 2 and 3 shaked a bit, it had vibrations, not bad ones, but feelable ones. Reported to my boss and latest ive heard is that its an easy fix and should be implemented this summer :)

They have also tested the modifications of Helix last week and there is some more tweaking to get it perfect.
