All Aboard the Hype Train!
Get ready because this summer you’re going to need to buckle up! Thrill-seekers are being pampered as Särkänniemi secures its place as 2017’s top theme park in Finland with its stellar new ride addition Hype – designed by the famous Premier Rides all the way from the United States. Summer 2016’s hugely popular ride X warmly welcomes its new thrill-inducing partner; Hype is so far the fastest, highest and coolest ride Särkänniemi has acquired.
Hype is the first triple-launch roller coaster in the Nordic countries, and also the highest launch coaster in Finland. Hype accelerates to a maximum speed of 100 km/h and launches passengers vertically to 45 meters above ground. At its highest point the track makes an inversion and afterwards drops passengers straight down into a vertical loop before returning to the station. All aboard the Hype Train!
Hype became operational on Thursday June 15th. The official opening festivities were held on Sunday June 18th with Finland’s greatest pop star Robin!
