Finnish amusement park Linnanmäki installed a new rollercoaster called Taiga in 2019. Installation began in October 2018 and was carried out with the help of Trenox professionals. Our tower crane operator was involved in the process throughout crispy winter days and got to see how 52-meter-tall rollercoaster was set up.
The installation of Taiga required both static tower cranes and mobile cranes. Tower cranes were used to lift the pieces of the track and mobile cranes were lifting the technicians. The work was demanding as the track pieces had to be installed in specific angles to create the shape of the Taiga ride. Finnish winter weather also spiced up the work with snowstorms and minus zero degrees.
