First Look and POV of Liseberg's Newest Coaster - Helix!

 

Today is Pressday at Liseberg amusement park in Gothenburg, Sweden and they're officially unveiling the park's largest investment to date, Helix. The park's 4th coaster, built by Germany's Mack Rides, is the largest and fastest to date. By this time, the first riders have already experienced the intensity that this monster coaster has to offer. In just three days, April 26th, the park will be fully open and the general public will get to experience the insanity that is Helix first hand.

Riders will reach speeds of 100km/h (62mph) on this multiple launch coaster and careen through seven inversions and over 3/4 of a mile of track during their 2min 10sec ride. It may not be the fastest, nor the biggest, but it's layout and location within the park should make for one memorable ride!

Seriously, this thing looks mental and intense as hell. One of these days we'll get over there to ride this, one day.

So, without further ado, here's the front seat POV for Liseberg's newest!


Not enough for ya? Here's what you can expect during a night ride!
