Linnunrata Xtra (Finnish for Milky Way Xtra) is a steel enclosed family roller coaster located at Linnanmäki in Helsinki, Uusimaa, Finland. It is a custom design by Zierer and Werner Stengel. The ride was previously known as Space Express from 2000 to 2003, but was renamed in 2004 when the park decided to give all their rides Finnish names. The ride was renamed to Linnunrata Xtra in 2016 when Linnanmäki fitted the ride with virtual reality headsets.

Design

Theme

The ride is enclosed inside an old water tower, making it the only indoor roller coaster in Finland. When guests enter the building, they walk through a series of outer-space themed rooms before boarding the roller coaster. The ride starts with bright flashing LED lights.

Trains

2 trains with 10 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row, for a total of 20 riders per train.
