Helix is a rollercoaster at Liserberg park in Gotebourg, Sweden. It is located at the hill on the right side of the park, when entering through the main gate. On the same hill also the Lisebergbanan (coaster) and the Flumeride (waterride) are located. The tracks of these rides all interact.

The ride contains 3 acceleration points. At the start with a pre-drop from the station and 2 LIM acceleration sections. The ride is a steel launched Mack Megacoaster build by Mack.

The ride is Liseberg’s biggest ride investment ever, approx $30 million. The track is green with green supports. The trains are also green with black chairs and restraints. The trains do not (!) have over the shoulder restraints, but use the Mack own restraint system, which grip the waist and thighs firmly to the chair, remaining comfortably although at the end of the ride they can be rather thight, making it hard to breath.

At the opening date it had the longest and fastest in Scandinavia. Helix is after California Screamin' the world's second-longest roller coaster with inversions.

The ride is intense, comfortable and long. The varying and unrelenting nature of the layout gives riders no time to relax. It flows over the mountain following the curves of the mountainside and adding its own elements. Indeed creating the next level of roller coasters, as published by park. A must ride for all coaster enthusiasts.
