    Hutch's Trip Report Thread - American Spite: Nickelodeon Universe

    One of my college friends got married this past weekend in southeastern Pennsylvania. The ceremony and reception took place on Friday, which conveniently freed up the rest of the weekend to swing by one of the local parks before driving back to Boston. Originally, I was more than happy to just...

    Alton Towers | Nemesis | B&M Retrack | 2024

    Yeah unfortunately I never got to SFMM in time enough to ride Revolution before they renamed it to New Revolution. Missed out on that bonus +1!

    Alton Towers | Nemesis | B&M Retrack | 2024

    Ahh so THAT'S how we argue how this is a new cred.

    The Road to 300: Dorney, Knoebels, Hershey, SFGAdv... and Yeungling!

    Did you not try out the Flyers at Knoebels? That **** is absolutely insane.

    So Which Modification is Better (Or Worse?): Lightning Rod or TT2

    2024 has ironically become the year of the refurb: TTD, LR, Nemesis, Fire in the Hole, Shockwave, Loch Ness Monster, and whatever the name of that other Intamin launch is.

    Cedar Point | Top Thrill 2 | Triple Launch Renovation | 2024

    Somehow the 5 train ops on TTD worked as you'd have two in the station, two on the launch track (one sitting still behind the one actually being launched), and one unloading separately on the final turn. Stacking trains early as opposed to on the brake run actually wasn't a problem, especially...

    A trip for the milestone – Germany – August 2023

    Good work on collecting those lesser-known parks/creds. Being on the eastern side of Germany & Poland, that area seems like a bit of a lull that makes it tough to tie in with other parks on the western side. Sounds like a pretty solid long weekend to clump those together! Looking forward to...

    SFSTL | Rookie Racer | Vekoma Junior Coaster | 2023

    I mean, we can't be THAT impressed by it if they still manage to achieve it right? Opening a kiddie coaster once all the kids are back in school? Come on. 🤣

    Cedar Point | Top Thrill 2 | Triple Launch Renovation | 2024

    When the train exits the station and goes through the switch track, the next train will be in the station by then. Third train, which would have previously cleared the top hat would be sitting on the brake run.

    Scooping up some Scandi - Part 4: Furuvik

    Surprised you didn't sneak down for another visit to your beloved Liseberg! Been hearing some really good things about the new Gerstlauer though. I was very skeptical of it during construction, and still concerned about the shuffling, but it sounds like it actually does some pretty cool and...

    Dollywood announce Lightning Rod's launch to be replaced with chain lift

    I wonder if they'll also use this time to replace the remainder of the wooden track with the ibox.

    Six Flags Over Georgia | Kid Flash Cosmic Coaster | Skyline Attractions P'Sghetti Bowl | 2023

    They look quite s*** honestly, especially just sitting on slabs of concrete... guess it fits with the aesthetic of the park lol. However I do like how these are some cheeky +2s, and shouldn't be too much of a hassle to grab as the dual loading should ease up the queue.

    Six Flags America | Steam Town Area | 2024

    Kinda looks like some shoddy AI put together the rendering of the SLC...

    SeaWorld Orlando | Penguin Trek | B&M Family Launch Coaster | 2024

    Also I believe the Florida market is pretty tight right now. Disney seems to have Vekoma covered and Intamin (and I guess Mack) has been busy with Universal. Both those would've been fine choices for a family launcher or an Ice Breaker alternative.
