    Yomiuriland 2021 coaster | Space factory

    The new "factory" land is already there with buildings for Car Factory, Food Factory and Fashion Factory all containing rides, so it makes sense that this will be added there. The other "factories" are all heavily sponsored, so I'd assume this will be too. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    Wonderland Eurasia/Ankapark closes - After a year of operation.

    And from sooooooo many different manufacturers, too. I have to wonder if the manufacturers actually got paid properly. For example, it's weird that Intamin got the 10-inversion open, but not the Jet Rescue clone. Zamperla and Zierer got their stuff running, but the SBL coasters were clearly...

    Wonderland Eurasia/Ankapark closes - After a year of operation.

    Not the UK. You seem to think that coasters just get donated to struggling parks that need something new. It'll go to whichever park pays for it, assuming it goes up for sale and anyone wants it at all. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    Wonderland Eurasia/Ankapark closes - After a year of operation.

    There are an absolute s**tload of rides there as well as the ridiculous number of coasters, sometimes multiples of the same ride. For example, they have two giant frisbees right next to each other. I'm sure other parks will be watching it closely since the rides are all pretty much new, some...

    Toshimaen (Tokyo) to close

    I always forget this place even exists. I'm surprised it's lasted this long to be honest. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    "Now Showing"

    Uncut Gems was s**t. Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood felt like it lasted 5 hours despite being less than 2. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    Rank the Gravity Group coasters

    ^ Interesting that you thought the Nanning clone was (almost) as good as the original. I LOVED Zhengzhou's, but the one in Nanning left me cold. I'll have to have a go at this list later when I'm not on my phone. Can't think of them off-hand. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    Best B&M Flying Coaster?

    Forgot about this topic. I got the full collection back in June (or was it July?). Here it is then: 1. Flying Dinosaur - ridiculous thing, stupidly intense, but fab. Great setting flying over Jurassic Park as well. 2. Skyscrapper/Sky Ripper - excellent, unique coaster, but very plonked and...

    China (The Changsha Circular) - Part 14: Cred & Summary

    The mystery door takes you up to the very highest observation level, just above the top of the drop towers. I forked out for it on my first visit there. Not worth the extra cost. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    China (The Changsha Circular) - Part 14: Cred & Summary

    Awww, I've actually got a bit of a soft spot for Chuanlord, and those replacement coasters are looking a lot fresher than the same models they replaced (plus that means I have more creds when I get back). I "luckily" got that looper after I'd lost a load of weight. I'm pretty sure they didn't...

    Major Parks In China Close Down Until The Coronavirus Crisis Is Over.

    Call me cynical, but this is great news for Ocean Park. They've been running it into the ground for years, arrogantly ignoring competition opening very close by, and losing visitors and money year on year. Last year's figures, when released, will obviously be awful (predictions of 5 million...

    Flash Pass - Six Flags Great Adventure

    You'll be fine with any ID. I didn't do it at Great Adventure, but I used my Hong Kong ID card at Magic Mountain with no issues. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    China (The Changsha Circular) - Part 14: Cred & Summary

    I know it's counterintuitive for us enthusiasts, but in China it's usually better to hit parks at weekends if you want more of a guarantee for everything to be open (still not guaranteed). Mondays especially seem to be a big no-no, especially at Happy Valley parks (yeah, I know this isn't Happy...
