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.
EnjoymentVery fun and reridable coaster! Long, varied layout with great interactions with the terrain and Lisebergbanan.
EffectivenessVery exciting ride that doesn't disappoint.
IntensityNot as intense as the best Intamins, but still delivers good airtime and strong G+. Great floating moments during some of the inversions.
Rider ComfortFlawless! Very comfortable restraints, smooth trackwork and no kinks throughout the layout.
PacingFabulous duration, no dead spots and exciting elements throughout the layout.
Theming/StorylineFantastic 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.
Upkeep/PresentationExcellent maintenance so far.
