Helix Ride Review

Byron: After taking a break from writing on the site, I am thrilled to be writing again, and what better way to return than to review a ride of Helix’s caliber.

Helix is a Mack Rides roller coaster at Liseberg in Gothenburg Sweden. It features two launches, seven inversions, several strong airtime moments and a sprawling terrain-based layout.  Helix was the bucket list coaster for me ever since it opened in 2014, and after years of anticipation, I had the chance to ride it in the summer of 2018. I was so excited I could barely contain myself and before I knew it,  I was packed in like a sardine ascending the crowded Liseberg escalators leading us to The Next Level.  Every guest in there, myself included, shared one common goal: Ride Helix.
