Linnunrata eXtra (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.



The ride is enclosed inside an old water tower, making it the only enclosed 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.
