Kanonen?


I don't think it will be since this ride seems to be a lot taller and faster than Kanonen.

I really thought first of Kanonen too.

But then again, I think that post has an error somewhere... Dizzy heights, plunging 52ft (Give or take about 15m) to the ground, top speed of 107km/u.
These stats sound weird so far and don't really add up. Especially the dizzy heights + 52ft combo in a park that has much taller rides.

Unless...
It's a 52ft drop track? Which sounds quite insane.

It's not 52 ft the translation is wrong. It should be 52 meters or about 170ft

Linnanm??ki Amusement Park, in Helsinki, Finland, announces their biggest roller coaster project ever: Taiga is Getting Ready to Launch!
22.3.2018 12:38 | Lasten P??iv??n S????ti??/Linnanm??ki

Jaa
Something exciting has been brewing at Linnanm??ki Amusement Park during the past winter. The amusement park has been posting teasers in the social media implying that ???Taiga is in the air???.

It is finally time to announce that a spectacular roller coaster is arriving at Linnanm??ki in 2019!

???We are very excited to finally announce that Linnanm??ki is making its greatest ride project ever in co-operation with ride manufacturer Intamin. This most unique high-profile launch coaster can be described as a coaster enthusiasts??? dream???, explains Pia Adlivankin, Managing Director of Linnanm??ki with great excitement.

This new ride will have a top hat height at 52 meters, Finland???s longest track length of 1104 meters and a furious maximum speed of 106 km per hour. In addition, this new coaster will have two launches and four inversions.

Intamin is a European coaster manufacturer with the largest number of launch coasters in operation all over the world.

???It was an easy choice to select Intamin as our ride provider, since they had the most creative layout suggestion for our challenging terrain. We are truly satisfied with our biggest ride acquisition ever??? Anssi Tamminen, Technical Director of Linnanm??ki comments on the project.

Linnanm??ki expects this ride to be one of the most exciting rides in Europe.

???This coaster will impress everyone. The final layout design phase was a true collaborative effort with Linnanm??ki, and we were able to come up with a roller coaster which will set new standards not only in Finland but in the whole Northern Europe and even beyond???, Intamin???s Executive Vice President Sascha Czibulka proudly explains.

This fierce new roller coaster, Taiga, will be launched during the 2019 season.

Ride starts with fully inverting stengel dive (On the left of the picture) and then S-curves itself to the second longer launch. This will be so AWESOME! :shock: :o

So sweet. Once again, Intamin is absolutely kicking butt overseas. This one and Hyperion are going to be knockouts.

I think it's a multi-launcher like Taron and Maverick.
