Helix Review

by Coaster Hipster, 2 months ago
Helix is definitely one of the best coasters in Europe! The layout is unique, fun and fairly long. It delivers strong but not extreme forces and really good airtime. The atmosphere is really nice between interactions with other rides, the terrain hugging layout and the electronic soundtrack.

Theming/Storyline

Fantastic soundtrack - it actually lasts just under an hour! Very unique futuristic theme and a fascinating maze queueline. A bit too much concrete and the station lacks detail for a perfect 5/5, but the lighting effects are amazing at night.

Efficient ride ops for generally very quick dispatches.
