Press opening

am_helix_braidsOn April 23, few days before the official opening, the European Coaster Club (ECC) and the press had the opportunity to try Helix. In honor of the day, I put on helix braids, complete with Liseberg rabbits. I also brought along an accelerometer and measured the forces on the rider, middle, front and back.

Already, the week before, I was allowed to put an accelerometer on the front seat of an empty train. (View graphs of the resulting data and more about
Helix physics.)
