The Finnish amusement park Särkänniemi, perhaps best known these days as home of Angry Birds Land, has added a new thrill ride from Zamperla.

Launched in May and known simply as X, the new addition to the park in Tampere is a 30-seat Zamperla Giant Discovery. Swinging to a height of 30-metres, the ride reaches a top speed of 80km/h, during which passengers are subjected to G-forces of 4.7. Guests must be a minimum of 1.4m in height to sample the new attraction.
