The iconic ride scrapped: Now reveals the Tivoli brand new roller coaster

The iconic ride 'Odinexpressen' is the past in the Tivoli gardens in Copenhagen, but now the theme park reveal how the new roller coaster, which replaces the 'Odinexpressen' in the near future, is going to look like.

The ride, which is going to be called the 'Milky way', is now so close to being finished, that Tivoli has published the first images of how it will look.

- For the first time, we show how Tivoli's new roller coaster, which is the successor to the iconic 'Odinexpressen', is going to look like. We dare to promise that this will be a little wilder, faster, and more fun than the superb 'Odinxpress' as the replacement. The wagons are just hoisted into Tivoli gardens in the topsoil and dark and positioned with centimetre precision. Now we go into the test period, says Tivoli's chief press officer, Torben Plank.

And according to the Tivoli itself can rutsjebanefans begin to rejoice.

- the Milky way, which replaces the Odinexpressen, becoming one of the wildest Tivoli rides, when it comes to swing and move in curves. Guests rolled from side to side, if they do not hold. The come to full to live up to what the iconic Odinexpressen was loved for, however, is the ride much more smooth and delicious, says Jacob Helenius, who is design director at Tivoli, and continues:

- We have not changed at all it is good - only added something more in height. But the design will once again stand out from the other parks, with a special Tivoli design, where the light and the thematic experience will be seen in this new universe, he says further.

According to the designer of the 'Milky way', will Gurley, becomes 'Milky way' 'fun for the whole family', and the roller coaster will lead them into a galactic mission.

The ride opens 6. december and, for the first time possible to try in connection with this year's 'Christmas in Tivoli'. The 'milky way' is an update of the 'Odinsekspressen', which no longer fits into the corner of the Tivoli gardens, which with the time have been space-themed.

the Design of the roller coaster must follow the style that already is in the rides 'star flyer', 'Aquila 'Tik Tak', which are all inspired by the voyages of exploration and space.
