This ride looks fantastic! The inversions, speed and layout look amazing and it looks really smooth. The trains look very comfy as well and they are lap bars! The ride lacks any theme and where it's on a mountain the support work is so ugly, but overall brilliant!
8/10

This is a ride which has certainly lived up to the hype, with excellent speed throughtout and a fantastic layout. I certainly want to get to Liseberg at some point.

With a possible Mack hypercoaster opening next year at Lewa Happy World, I can see Mack developing to be equal competition to Intamin. I would also say that this coaster is better than any B&Ms opening this year (Banshee, Flug der Damonen), which seem to lack any intensity or true thrill although they still have the B&M smoothness.

I could definitely see a Mack multi launch, ground hugging coaster at towers. They seem to be manufactured to top quality and are bringing great competition to the likes of B&M and intamin, really showing them what they can do!

I can see helix being in the top 10 roller coasters in the world if i'm honest and rightfully, by the looks of that POV it should be
