Helix is a steel launched roller coaster located at Liseberg in Gothenburg, Göteborgs-Bohus, Sweden. It was manufactured by Mack Rides and opened in 2014.

Design[edit]

Elements

The ride features 2 LSM launches, making it the first multi-launched roller coaster in Europe. The track winds through the trees, keeping close to the ground. It features four airtime hills and seven inversions. It was the third launched roller coaster built by Mack Rides after blue fire Megacoaster at Europa-Park and Manta at SeaWorld San Diego. It was also Liseberg's second launched roller coaster after Kanonen, which was later removed in 2016 to make way for Valkyria, a Bolliger & Mabillard Dive Coaster opening in 2018.

Trains[edit]

3 trains with 5 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 20 riders per train.
