Linnanmäki amusement park’s daredevil ride Taiga is set to open again on Saturday, August 7.

Taiga was closed due to a data communications problem last Saturday.

According to the amusement park, the problem was started by a damaged optical fiber.

“Taiga, which was introduced in the park in June 2019, has a lot of sophisticated safety engineering to take care of the safety of our customers. The sensitive sensors will stop the ride if they notice something unusual such as a loss of signal,” says Linnanmäki’s Technical Director Anssi Tamminen in a statement.
