  1. This is gonna be awesome, 10 minutes from where i live.



    Not the quickest, baddest, most amazing etc but still for a small country like ours it´s pretty awesome.

    G-force: 4,2
    Length: 1,3 km (0,8 miles)
    Height: 44 m (144 feet)
    Time: 110 seconds
    cost: 200 million SEK (30 million USD)

    Edit: oh and not one but 2 launch pads while you are on track. ;)
     
  2. Some other roller coasters from out park,
    first one is a wooden one, was voted the best wooden roller coaster in the world, twice.



    Then we have Liserbergsbanan, Schwarzkopf´s favorite because he had to design it around the vegetation (bit like race tracks, they always turn out amazing)
    Built in 87 so it´s nothing compared to modern ones but it´s a classic among many people, not just people from Sweden.



    And then the Cannon, the launch is awesome and while you stand in line you can actually pick up cellphones, money, you name it, watch the video and you´ll see why :)

    I don't have the balls to ride roller coasters. They make me nauseous.
