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

Much better this way
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Love the video Ap0ptosis, but search for "BlackScrap! - The World We Are" for a youtube video if you want to replace the sound for your video to keep the sound going.

Helix Blog update - All about the Station
Since there isn't much progress on the track itself, Lisa who runs the Helix blog posted some images of the progress that have been made on the station so far. They have however ground to a halt on parts on that project as well since they now need the track for the station area to be put into place, but that won't happen till January. So the only real progress in this area will be done to the queue so there is still lots to do. And since the queue is in the bowl of the station it's a great place to make some serious progress.

Source of the images below as well as several others: projekthelix.se - Stationen börjar ta form

Where all the queuing will take place

One of the passages between the station and maintenance building, that cut in the wall will be at the same height of the station floor, so it's pretty damn tall this building

So, I went to liseberg for the first time this year today. Wow! Helix looked so much better in reality, felt both larger and the hillside seemed steeper. The part from the airtime hump after the second corkscrew down to the pretzel look pretty darn steep which was a surprise to me.
The hill also didn't appear as naked as I imagined and it will probably look really awesome with all the new trees being planted. :lover:

^ It was really nice to hear that you like it :)
But then again, how can't you :P

Yeah, it's a lot larger than you think when you only have images to rely on, but I think that will change as the larger elements starts to appear on site next year.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Helix looks amazing! Wish I could visit when it opens, too bad for me though. Lisberg overall looks like a very nice place.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

When they announced Helix, I nearly crapped my pants. I wanted to go on the Scandi tour so bad, but it's just not possible financially. :cry:

Oh crap, sexually arousing pictures should have a NSFW-tag...
