Calgary just got a little more thrilling thanks to Telus Spark Science Centre’s new attraction, the RO5iE Robo Coaster.

The first of its kind in Canada, RO5iE is a robot roller coaster that’s trackless and placed indoors to be used all year long. RO5iE is essentially a giant robot arm with seats that twirls riders around in a gravity-defying thrill ride, aiming to show people that robots of the future can be fun and exciting.

Up to three riders can ride RO5iE at a time, with five unique roller coaster settings to choose from. Riders must be at least six years old to ride and there are height and weight restrictions. Rides are not included with admission to Telus Spark, and costs $7 per single rider or $20 for three riders.

RO5iE is now a permanent fixture at the science centre, so be sure to check out the new robotic attraction during your next visit to Telus Spark.
