    Your Favorite Flat Ride?

    Harley Quinn Spinsanity at Six Flags Over Texas. It combines the best aspects of a Screamin' Swing, Scrambler & (presumably, since I haven't ridden one yet) Top Spin into one bizarre, mind-boggling ride experience. Riding it during a drizzle of rain made this even more disorienting - Harley...

    Major Rides At Your Local Park You Always Skip?

    At Carowinds, I tend to skip Nighthawk (still haven't ridden it), Vortex, Carolina Cyclone, Flying Cobras, Hurler, along with most of the other coasters and flat rides... I mainly just prioritize multiple laps on Fury and Copperhead Strike, occasionally riding a few other flats or coasters if...

    Favourite theme park entrance experience?

    Islands of Adventure - As Matt is saying, it's a fantastic main street that really sets the bar for Islands of Adventure's incredible and highly immersive atmosphere. Six Flags Fiesta Texas - A shockingly well-themed, vibrant Mexican-inspired plaza, with a distinct charm that sets it apart...

    Gyeongju World | Valkyrie | Gerstlauer Family Boomerang | 2021

    Valkyrie is a clone of Gold Rush at OK Corral, and the ride cycle on Gold Rush actually completes a full circuit before rolling backwards at the end. Here:

    Cheetah at Wild Adventures retired

    I went to Wild Adventures this weekend and got plenty more photos of Cheetah's unfortunate deconstruction, here they are: The remains of Cheetah's last turn into the brakes The remains of Cheetah's turnaround (taken from Wild Adventures' exit road) It was pretty saddening to see this...

    Last Cred Review

    Twisted Typhoon, Wild Adventures (#191) - For my first SLC, I was expecting a much worse experience than it actually was. The last few elements were pretty shaky and jerky, with the train making an odd clanging noise through them, but I didn’t get off with a headache or throbbing pain elsewhere...

    (Rumor) Spivey Industrial Contractors possibly working with Six Flags Over GA to install a new ride for 2022.

    A few months ago, when Splashwater Falls began to be cleared out, I ran some rough measurements to see what could fit in that plot of land. Lo and behold, a MACK PowerSplash fits PERFECTLY! Aquaman's footprint at Six Flags Over Texas: Splashwater Falls' footprint at Six Flags Over Georgia...

    What is the most surprising airtime moment you’ve experienced in your enthusiast career?

    I also remember there being ejector here too. That lap was full of surprises!

    What is the most surprising airtime moment you’ve experienced in your enthusiast career?

    The Legend at Holiday World's speed hill (this one) particularly comes to mind here - only heard one other person mention it in the entire coaster community. For a famously laterals-filled coaster, I didn't expect much from it in terms of airtime, but Legend was a shocker. That hill caught me...

    Kings Dominion Jungle X-Pedition Area

    I personally don't see Kings Dominion adding 2 new coasters next year, considering it's the same park that went 8 years between Intimidator 305 and Twisted Timbers, and 4 years between Twisted Timbers and the S&S free spin. I'd think that Cedar Fair would want the most return on investment by...

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

    If I recall correctly, Ice Breaker is actually a Skyrocket IV. I really think that the Skyrocket II image is a red herring. Fiesta Texas says they've been working on this project for 5 years now, and that it'll be a new signature attraction for the park - a Skyrocket II, while being an...

    What do you consider a “good” ride count at a theme park?

    I'm generally happy with my ride count at a park if I've been able to accomplish my ride count goals. In the case of first-time visits like at Six Flags Great Adventure, this meant getting all the credits besides Joker with 1-2 rerides on Jersey Devil, El Toro and Nitro; while at Hersheypark...
