Linnunrata is a roller coaster located at Linnanmäki in Helsinki. It was known as Space Express during 2000-2003 seasons, but when Linnanmäki started a new naming policy in 2004, using only Finnish names for its rides, the ride was renamed Linnunrata. Linnunrata means Milky Way in Finnish.
When inside, to get to the rollercoaster, you first walk through some space station -styled rooms. The actual ride has an outer space style, starting by flashing bright LED lights.
The roller coaster is built inside an old water reservoir, and for the time being is the only indoor roller coaster ride in Finland.
