This is how all rides should end, with a splash!

Wow, that splash-down is way cool! I don't like the water deflection walls, but I get the impression they didn't have enough room to make a big splash pool.

I can imagine those walls would get you pretty drenched...

Yes I agree Jeff those walls probably only get everyone on board wetter! There is a proposed water attraction for SFA in the masterplan. Since we've already got a shoot-the-chutes, a white-water rapids ride, and a log flume hybrid, could this be what's proposed? I certainly hope so.

Indeed, Linnanmaki is situated in the centre of Helsinki on a hill and is lack of place. The liquid coaster was build on a former hillside next to a public park and you have a great view from outside.

The ride looks short, but incredibly FUN! The "deflection" walls seem to do their job to keep the water inside on the riders; better for people out side the park and on the ride. I want to ride it!

Those walls also seem as if they would conserve some water as most of it is going back down onto the riders and into the pool.
