    Zambezi Zinger | Worlds of Fun | GCI (partial) Titan Track | 2023

    Seems like it'll be a hit for the park. It's not the intense version that everyone hoped for (realistically it probably wasn't going to happen with Prowler nextdoor), but you can never go wrong with a thrilling family coaster. The spiral lift is cool and the s-bends toward the end look like a...

    Hutch's 2022 Trip Report Thread - Hansa-Park

    Tuesday, July 19th Besides some of the major attractions, I didn’t know much about Hansa-Park leading up to the trip. Between Kärnan and Highlander, which are two of the most intimidating rides in the world, I was pretty surprised to learn that Hansa was much more of a family park. If...

    Seven-Country, Eight-Week Euro Jam (July, August '22)

    I guess I never saw the negative staff/guest interactions that you speak of. But there definitely does need to be some changes with how they manage their queues. Would I rather have it so that I don't need the fast pass and handle 20 minutes queues all around? Absolutely. Maybe they could even...

    Seven-Country, Eight-Week Euro Jam (July, August '22)

    So for Port Aventura, I did the once per ride fast pass option as that and the main ticket price were relatively cheap. A two park ticket for one day, and that level of fast pass, turned out to be around 99 euros. And honestly, given the quality of the park itself and all the rides (adored...

    Hutch's 2022 Trip Report Thread - Hansa-Park

    Monday, July 18th That morning, I met up with @LooperOne, @tomahawk, @Snoo, @Groot, @Sky, and a few other friends at the airport car rental. They all did Walibi Holland the day prior, and had a nightmare-ish flight early this morning out of Amsterdam. We picked up our rental van and arrived to...

    United Spites of America - Summary

    Good work on pumping these reports out! I kept thinking to myself, god, I would never do a trip like this. I can do a week, two weeks, but nothing this extensive and with the amount of driving. ESPECIALLY with some... choice detours you took there according to your map. I'm sure you had your...

    Rank your Ridden B&M Inverts

    Why OzIris bringing up the rear? I could see it either being really good or pretty mid, but it doesn't look BAD.

    Parque de Atracciones de Madrid - 22/0-7/2022

    I don't remember if they checked my restraint on Abismo or not. I guess I was too busy fearing for that awful hangtime. I laughed when you said you'd take the stroll to the park. The metro is so easy, and honestly it's the main draw for the park for me... ridiculously easy transportation for a...

    Hutch's 2022 Trip Report Thread - Hansa-Park

    Here we go, biggest trip of the year, and one of the biggest I’ve ever done Back in January, @LooperOne and @tomahawk put together a big ass Europe trip after their Japan trip fell through, thanks to Covid restrictions. The whole trip was about two weeks, but I only joined for a week as any...

    Six Flags Fiesta Texas | Dr. Diabolical's Cliffhanger | B&M Dive Coaster | 2022

    In terms of the rides themselves, they all blend together to me at this point. I've come to appreciate those that lack an MCBR as well. I think at this point, they need to continue focusing on pathway interaction, theming, and landscaping. This one has none of that.

    Rank the GCIs

    1. Renegade - Great layout with some surprising moments, mixed with the perfect amount of woodie aggression. Definitely the best I've done so far. 2. Mystic Timbers - A bit smoother than above but still maintains that aggression. Has the best setting and another fantastic layout. 3. Texas...
