Vonkaputous was a water roller coaster located at Linnanmäki in Helsinki, Finland. It was the second Premier Rides Liquid Coaster to be built. The coaster operated from 2001 to 2017 and was replaced by Taiga.
On Vonkaputous, visitors rode in a roller coaster car appearing as a boat, seating 10 passengers in 5 rows. After leaving the station, the car descended into a 90 degree turn leading to the chain lift hill. After reaching the top, the right-hand first drop led through a tunnel with mist effect. After the left-hand second drop, the car splashed to the water. After the splash, the car slowly passed to the station through an s-curve.
3 cars. Riders are arranged 2 across in 5 rows for a total of 10 riders per car.
