This time there is good news for all European coaster fans again. This time the good news come from Scandinavia. In Northern Europe's biggest amusement park Liseberg a new steel coaster is getting alive in spring 2014. And the first impressions are quite promising!

Already in July this year, the Swedish park in Gothenburg revealed the plans for its new theme area for 2013: "Kaninlandet” will mainly focus on the little ones. Just in time for Liseberg's 90th anniversary, the new 10,000 square metres big kid's zone will be welcoming the guests and contain a monorail, two junior drop towers, a Ferris wheel for children, a small roller coaster as well as several other attractions. With on overall investment of 22.6 million Euro "Kaninlandet” was introduced as the most expensive addition in the park's history – till now.

Just barely three month later, Liseberg now puts a sparkle in the eyes of the grown-ups by introducing a new roller coaster. With "Projekt Helix” the Swedish park will install it's longest and fastest roller coaster, as official data state. And believe it or not – even this time it shall be the biggest investment to the park's ride portfolio. One record is chasing the other!

The coaster designed by German manufacturer Mack Rides has a length of 1.4 kilometres and the trip will last nearly two minutes. The track features two launches where the train will be accelerated by LSM-technology and reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h. And while the name "Projekt Helix” promises a twisty layout, these expectations will truly be fulfilled: Six inversions including a Norwegian loop will turn the riders upside down and four camelbacks will guarantees a lot of airtime!
