Helix is Lisebergs largest investment ever, in a single attraction. The new roller coaster is longer and faster than any other coaster in the park. The aim is to make construct one of the best roller coasters in the world.
The track is almost 1,4 km (4500 feet) long and the ride lasts for two minutes. Along the track are two launches where the coaster accelerates using Linear Synchronous Motors (LSM). It will be the second multi-launch coaster in Europe. The ride will include seven inversions, three airtime hills and plenty of drops, twists and turns.
With speeds up to 100 km/h (62 mph) this new coaster will be the fastest one in the park and the most technologically advanced one. It’s manufactured by the German company Mack Rides Gmb.
The new coaster will premiere in spring 2014.
