All the other times the park has built a big thrill coaster, the old one has been removed. Except Balder but he's wooden without any loops.

I don't think it won't happen this time, at least for a while. Since they now have more space than they know what to do with it, so removing rides for new rides due to space constraints won't happen. It may be removed due to that it won't have that much riders with Helix opened, I mean who in their sane mind would prefer Kanonen to Helix?


And if you think about it, Kanonen and Helix doesn't really have that much more in common other than that they're both launched coasters. They have different elements, are in different corners of the park and the launches will be quite different, rolling vs. stationary start.

All in all I'm very excited about Helix! :b

Yeah, this was the main reason I thought of. It's really not that great of a coaster and my last visits it seems to never have any line, despite single train operations. I can only imagine the effect Helix will have in ridership on it.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

Looks like Blue Fire and The Smiler had a kinky love child in Sweden... With dubstep.

I fully approve of this.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

I am coasterjunkie1975 and I approve of the awesomeness that is Helix :)

Maverick is my Number 2 coaster and I enjoyed Cheetah Hunt so this ride will undoubtedly please me as well ( if I ever get the chance to ride it that is).

This is possibly my most highly anticipated 2014 non home park coaster. (My home park is Kings Island, so its kinda hard not to be excited when your home park is getting a new machine.) Although, Seven Dwarfs and the Gringotts Bank Coaster should be exciting too. Wow, it's only June and 2014 is already shaping up to be an exciting year!

Donkeys are my way of life!

This coaster looks like an amazing mix of many other coasters from around the world, and it looks fantastic. Really would love to visit Liseberg one day to ride this.
Top coasters: Maverick, Storm Runner, Skyrush, Steel Vengeance, Fury 325, Titan, Phoenix, NTAG, Apollo, Blue Streak.

This is going to be a simply amazing ride. Also, is it just me or did they use the exact RCT2 scream at the beginning of the POV?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This looks so badass! Too bad it will be a very very long time until I get to ride it.
