Swedish theme park Furuvik is celebrating the launch of its latest attraction - the Vekoma-manufactured Lightning.

Featuring a 75kmph (46.6mph) magnetic launch, Lightning is the fastest coaster of its kind under the family category.

Covering 860m (2,820ft) with two loops of the coaster track, Lightning reaches a maximum height of 17m (55.8ft) and features a booster launch when it enters the station for its second go-around.

“Lightning is a massive investment and without doubt the biggest attraction in Furuvik’s history,’ said Peter Osbeck, senior ride manager for operator Parks and Resorts Scandinavia.

“It’s really cool that Furuvik now has its own launch coaster; a gigantic roller coaster that takes off at the speed of lightning right from the start.”
