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.
Naaaaaaaants igonyamaaaaaaa bagithi babaaaaa! Yes, we recently got back from the Lion King Festival at Disneyland Paris. A special summer season and what a hot and busy day it was.

Sven: Today, Walibi Holland kindly invited us to the opening event of the year in Europe! Untamed, Europe’s first Iron Horse RMC coaster officially opened today. Get ready to face the Wilderness and learn about the creature that lurks at the end of the park.
Sven: Fury sparkles as the newest coaster addition in Belgium. The ride has some unique features and finally puts Bobbejaanland back on the map. But besides the ride, they opened a brand new area at the park to accommodate this interesting new coaster. Ready to battle the threats?
Sven: It’s hot in Europe and yet, we go out to the parks to enjoy the coasters and more. To celebrate my birthday, I recently went to Disneyland Paris!

Sven: You probably know that I live in Belgium. Coasterwise, we don’t have the tallest or the most thrilling coasters out there. However, we do have some unique coasters that can only be experienced in our tiny country. Today, we put one of those in the spotlight as it is a true icon in many ways. Raise your glass to 30 years of excitement thanks to Revolution at Bobbejaanland!
Sven: Finally, we made it to Scandinavia! A region that was lacking on my theme park count (and thus also coaster count). Fortunately, we experienced a wonderful two days at Liseberg, the coaster kingdom of Scandinavia. A stunning launch coaster, a woodie full of airtime and one of the best family coasters out there. Oh and a wonderful dive too. Let’s get to it! Continue reading “Liseberg – Coasters You Want Nearby”
