So today I got to visit Liseberg for the press opening event of Helix.
This new Mack installation has some pretty impressive specs: Top speed of 100km/hour 2 launches, 1,38km long capacity of 1350 riders/hour 7 inversions and 3 weightless moments.
Great addition for the park, feels like it's spot on with their target group for this ride and i'm pretty sure it will provide the things they are expecting of it. Fun, long ride which is very very reridable. Nice pops of airtime and inversion and it brings a smile to your face.
I like a countdown, especially if I don't have to wait that long
the park just looks pretty
hmm, first look at the new ride
in case you forgot the name
pretty sure there will be plenty of shopping goodies available pretty soon
speech time (not that long ;) (thanks for that))
eagerly waiting riders
part of the queue area from above
time to look at the coaster
so many different pieces of steel and coaster in one image
I do hope he made it back
the big drop
with a train
scream if you like it
more screaming happy faces
air, tears, joy.. so many things
it looks pretty
another look at part of the queue
restraint system from the side
lots of green steel
sign / specs
different skyline (compared to my previous visit)
lots and lots of green
lot of things happening in a small area
second launch fun
more inversions, airtime moments and fun
the drop out of the station seen from below
test dummy system on Balder
another view point
here they come
do like the led lights
go go go
wave at the camera
I just like this image
bad hair day?
are they related?
inversion time with headlights
pop of airtime
ok, now we are talking Hairtime :)
it's such a pretty (green) looking train
second launch fun
final turn before the second launch
go go go
tight squeeze at some points
extreme airtime (check the wheels)
I like long hair (for coaster pictures
and the backrow

Phenomenal pics Hanno! Helix looks awesome. The Swedes appear to have a winner on their hands. Thank you as always for sharing your amazing photos! I have said it before, but the TPR day I spent at Liseberg in 2009 is still my all time fav park visit day, and I can't wait to get back there.
