Helix 5/5 (6)

A helix is a banked upwards or downwards spiral, generally exceeding 360°. The helix section of a roller coaster closely resembles a coil spring in the way that it spirals up or down. A helix can be clockwise or anti-clockwise. The mirror image of an anti-clockwise helix is clockwise and vice versa.

I am passionate about Theme Parks and Attractions. I love riding roller coasters and thrill rides. With two young boys I understand how expensive family days out can be and this was one of the main driving forces behind Attractions Near me. My aim is to help you and your friends enjoy some great days out without costing the earth. Thanks for reading and have a great time - Regards Dan
