In 2014 Liseberg will launch a new roller coaster - The working title of the project is Project Helix.

The track is almost 1,4 km (4500 feet) long and the ride lasts for almost two minutes. Along the track are two launches where the coaster is accelerated using Linear Synchronous Motors (LSM). It will be the first multi-launch coaster in Europe. The ride will include six inversions, four airtime hills and plenty of drops, turns and twists.

With speeds up to 100 km/h (62 mph) this new coaster will be the fastest one in the park. It will also be the most technologically advanced coaster in the park. It’s manufactured by the German company Mack Rides Gmb.

Now that looks fun! A Pretzel loop on a sitting coaster looks really fun! The coaster's surprisingly long aswell.

Wow, Liseberg have slightly altered the layout of Project Helix.

So this is now a 7 inversion coaster :)

This new start looks amazing! Going to be a lot of hangtime on that roll.

Yeah, the hangtime on that corkscrew definatly will be awesome. :)
With the addition of the extra inversion I think this could be one of the best coasters opening in 2014.

I thought it was going to be the best anyway! Now for B&M to release a 4D version of the Wing coaster ready for 2014. :)

They have improved the layout with what looks like an inside top hat after the second launch! :)

Making it now an 8 inversion coaster!
