    Airtimes Inversions Layout

    Helix is a super long Coaster that is very Balanced from start to finish. The Layout snakes over the hillside as you are greeted by many different Inversions. It took me long to realize why it didnt blew me away as much as i expected: the super well rounded layout has no real stand-out Moment. No big drop or fast launch. But that doesnt mean its bad - every Element delivers and especially the last big Airtime hill slaps with sustained ejector airtime in every Single row (Mack airtime is always good). Helix feels like a (long) Voyage of Fun and really is a phenomenal sister to Wildfire, swedens RMC, by doing everything that Wildfire doesnt and vice versa

    Fun Layout Rattle Dead spots

    The best way I can describe Helix is that its a "jack of all trades,master of none" coaster. The coaster features a nice blend of inversions with 3 good airtime moments. Accompanied with its hill setting and it all makes for a fun coaster. I will not mention its launches for this review because the weak launches have been mentioned to death. My issues with Helix are that theres a slight rattle through some of its inversions, the pacing is on and off on it depending on when you ride and I also feel it has dead spots galore that break up the elements on this ride that make it a solid top ten coaster such as its inverted top hat and final airtime hill. The queue line is also HIDEOUS looking in my opinion. Just ugly concrete and chipped metal all over the place, I get its not supposed to be themed but surely it could be made to look nicer than it presently does. These issues aside, Helix is currently my favourite coaster Mack have produced and a solid good fun top 10 coaster!!

    Airtimes Inversions Layout Launch

    When I first rode Helix, I'll admit I was disappointed. It was a really great ride but - I guess from all the hype - I was expecting more. However, the more I rode it the more I appreciated it, and eventually I had a night ride on it so good that I instantly proclaimed it as the best ride on a coaster I'd ever had. The launches may not be particularly forceful but the layout more than makes up for it. It's dynamic, forceful in parts, and the setting is absolutely fantastic. Especially at night, flying over that large airtime hill after the inverted top hat and looking over Gothenburg is absolute bliss. While I don't think the ride is perfect, it really is world class and by far the best Mack coaster I've ever ridden.

    Layout Hangtime Duration Launch

    Helix is a fantastic long ride that is masterfully executed. It’s long, full of inversions and hangtime with a few great airtime moments thrown in. I’m convinced the launches don’t actually exist, but everyone knows they’re forceless. It isn’t super intense or filled to the brim with extreme elements, but that’s what makes it what it is. It’s rerideable, fun, and overall a great ride experience. The two ejector hills, especially the second one, the Norwegian Loop, and the final inline twist are the highlights of the ride. The soundtrack and mood in the queue and station are awesome, but I wish the soundtrack would be included as on-board audio. Overall, Helix is an awesome coaster that serves to make everyone satisfied whenever they get off and have them rushing back into the queue to ride again.

    Airtimes Masterpiece Layout Launch

    Helix is a fantastic ride at a fantastic park in the fantastic Göteborg. This has almost everything you want in an elite coaster including a long terrain layout, multiple fun inversions, launches (albeit not very forceful), strong airtime, and whippy transitions. I especially love the two airtime hills that provide ejector and the "Norwegian Loop" which provides laterals as you flip around. While I agree that the launches are pretty weak, that does not knock this ride down from being a masterpiece and a 5/5 coaster. Also, the queue has an awesome aesthetic, and is a modern architectural piece on its own, with stairs and walkways winding around, above, and below each other. Also, you can't forget the amazing Helix soundtrack, which sets the tone of mystery and suspense before the ride. Helix is one of the best examples of how Swedish Parks put quality over quantity into their lineups.

    Airtimes Location Launch

    I did this Ride for the first time in the evening of friday 15 June 2018 at a ERT from 11 PM. So i didn't knew about the first inversion directly out of the station. And the inversions are great on this ride especially when its warmed up. I choose this ride just below Taron because of the launches and theming. But the lay out and the airtime are amazing on this ride and the relaxt rstraints makes it comfortable. I think this is the best Ride in Liseberg.

    Helix... What a ride! It has almost everything an enthusiast could ask for. fantastic airtime, great views, awesome music, great variation in the elements and forces, and to top it off, it's really smooth too! The front row (left seat) is by far the best place to sit on this ride, as you are so exposed and can see everything coming. It's truly a masterclass in layout design, using the terrain to its advantage and creating one of the most unique experiences of a coaster to date. There isn't a single section of wasted track, there are no dead spots and the launches are used well to maintain the speed and pace of the ride. They may not be the most intense, but they're still great fun as they're not necessarily the traditional use of a launch; In Helix's case, they are there to maintain the pace of the ride instead of give it the starting boost like most other launches. Night rides on this are in a completely different league, however, and well worth waiting for. Personally I was disappointed with the ride to start with, however upon re-rides later in the day, I came to the conclusion that this ride needs time to warm up before it is running at the speed to make it my #1 coaster, and that, to me, is the only flaw that Helix has.

    Lap Bar Location Capacity Disappointing! Launch

    I expected much more, especially from the launches. They feel like nothing! But the layout is unique and it's one of the most beautiful coasters to watch. The location on the hill and under and over Lisebergbanan and the Log Flume is one of a kind. The capacity could be higher, but it's still a good ride. Not the best, but solid.

    Airtimes Lap Bar Duration Theming Launch

    I thought Mack could only do tame rides with a strong GP focus. Oh my god, I have been wrong. Except for the launches, which do barely more then keeping your speed, it delivers a great mix of hang- and airtime combined with a great view, comfortable seats and a long ride. It's intensity is good, but nothing too intense. Great ride!

    Inversions Intensity Duration Launch

    Absolutely amazing. This has so much going for it - the setting, the duration, the inversions (not many create this type of ride feeling)... And I do not get what people criticise about its intensity, as it features both strong positives as well as sustained negatives very well in my opinion. There is also a very rapid sequence of intense elements somewhere before the second launch. Of course, as usual, it feels tame at the start of the day, so make sure to get a (night) ride after quite some hours of operation. The ride feels complete, has no dead spots and is a ton of fun. Basically only missing stronger launches, but if you think about it, there are not really needed. Great ride.

    Airtimes Comfort Layout Launch Dead spots

    Great ride though for me did not live up to the hype. The launch is not really an element if that makes sense, it’s more about getting you up to speed, slowly, really lacks force. But there are some great moments of both positive and negative g.

    Just WOW! I love this ride so much, if it only had more intense launches it would be even better, but it sure is one of the best coasters i’ve ever ridden. I wish i could add more pros to this one; lay-out, Capacity, hangtime, airtime, soundtrack, comfort,... HELIX just has it all.

    Airtimes Inversions Hangtime Launch Intensity

    This is one of the more Re-Rideable Roller coasters that I want on in Europe. The best elements of helix are the airtime hills , the inverted top hat and the zero g roll at the end Which the inversions promoted a ton of hang time. The other advantage Was that it was a pretty long ride. One huge downside was the launches. Do not come on this ride expecting an Intamin launch like on Maverick or on Taron. It is a more mild launch And not as intense. At times it felt like someone was breathing on the train To get the train going. Just to give you an idea of how mild the launch is . Still this is one of the best terrain coasters you’ll ever see and it is a beautiful symphony. It is a definite must ride in Europe and has some of the most catchy music that you’ll ever hear I still listen to the soundtrack on a daily basis. Andrea’s Anderson knock this one out of the park it is a world-class coaster and one I am proudly to say that I got to ride

    Helix is the pinnacle of roller coaster design, encompassing everything that a great coaster should be. A varied range of inversions mixed with some fun launches, combined with the great Mack restraints and a superb soundtrack. Riding last thing at night is a crowning jewel moment of any enthusiast's coaster trips with the twinkling lights of Liseberg and Gothenburg providing a picturesque backdrop. Helix is one-of-a-kind,a coaster built by enthusiasts for enthusiasts.

    Comfort Masterpiece Layout

    Wow ! If I could give this 10 stars I would ! Shame i can only add 3 main pros because it has them all!: Air time, hang time, layout, launch, fun, comfort, smoothness... its just epic!! First row is awesome for views.. back row is more intense, and it gets more intense during the end of the day. Night rides on this are epic!! Absolutely love the length of it, the variation of elements .. feels like you're always out your seat with the air time and hang time.. Love the first element straight out of the station, thats awesome! the location of this on the hillside is awesome! Such an amazing coaster!! Wish it was closer to home so i could ride it all the time !! TOP COASTER !!

    If it only had more intense launches - it would be my number one roller coaster. As it is, it is easily in my top 10: It's flying through the terrain, nice inversions, some airtime moments and a wonderful setting overall.
