    Maybe B&M was pushing this project them self and not the other way around. Didn't they want to push into the family market a few years ago? I'd say relations with Merlin are quite good. Could be their way of trying to diversify their portfolio.

    Walt Disney Studios Park | Avengers Assemble: Flight Force | R'n'RC retheme | 2022

    Tbh, I think its neither better nor worse. Its more ore less the same but with screens instead of cardboards. The ride as it stands now is fine imo. I have to agree that the former theme was more creative but other than that its more or less the same. That being said, I've never ridden Rock 'n...

    COTALAND | Texas | Gerstlauer Infinity Shuttle (Palindrome) & Vekoma Tilt (Unknown) & Other

    Well its certain now. Roller Coaster design has piqued! How are you supposed to improve on that apart from taller and bigger?

    The park looks so innocent compared to the construction ground 😍

    Coasters that were built too early?

    Im gonna throw "Star Trek Operation Enterprise" form Movie Park Germany into the mix. It opened in 2017 with a swing launch and 1 year later the Parc Asterix project was revealed containing the switch track. Edit: You could also name "Capitol Bullet Train" at Motiongate in Dubai

    TTD Closed, to be "Reimagined"

    That would be neat! But then again there is also a catchcar and a launch cable involved which wouldn't lower the threat potential. So i sadly don't see them go the extra mile to invest in that.

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi | 2022

    This ride is probably the closest we'll get to the RCT3 Cover art coaster:

    Goliath leaving SFNE

    I'm wishing for more than a year now that it gets to Heide Park alongside a much needed overhaul. Would fit perfectly in the parks lineup + its easy to market (Merlin likes that). I know that there are exactly zero signs at all that this could happen but I'm just hoping my home park finally gets...

    New Intamin blitz coaster sample layouts

    Yeah i get that they are trying to cash in with these models but it makes me sad anyways :( . It just seems lazy and cheap to me. S&S, Vekoma and RMC aren't that expensive either (at least to my knowledge) and their new models brought at least some innovation and/or variation to the industry...

    New Intamin blitz coaster sample layouts

    I feel like Intamin is only copying these days. Where is the innovation the company is known for? :(

    Desert Race at Heide Park > Taron At least layout wise The hydraulic launch is so much better than Taron's LSM (is it true that Taron's was reduced?). Also I guess size doesn't matter kids ^^ Never rode Rita but I think it would behave the same?

    Alright, here I go: Xpress platform 13 was the best coaster at Walibi Holland in 2018
