    Someone has, and if true, is actually a nice coaster.

    Gardaland | Jumanji: The Adventure | Unknown | 2022

    Ok, so a few thoughts (obviously based off of the video). - The preshow is weird. I can't help but think if there was a blackout (or even a flash/blackout like on Flight of Passage), then the cave was revealed would've worked better than the set just slowly mincing out of the way. - The hanging...

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

    I still think the 7 across rows are ****ing weird. Plus, 21 riders per car?! The only logical thought process is that they're looking to implement better operations on the single rider queueing system (if they even do it). So in theory, every single train could potentially have a family of...

    TusenFryd | Dragen | Gerstlauer Invert | 2023?

    I just love what they're doing with the place. I wish more parks would take a note from their book and expand on the guest experience offer over just whacking in another ride for the sake of it. These types of investments don't have a quick ROI like a new ride, but what they do have is...

    I really need to ride this. It looks fantastic.

    OCT Fantasy Resort| Xiangyang China | Theme Park

    Some of that theming is... weird? It just doesn't really make sense. I understand that sometimes theming doesn't and it's meant to just create atmosphere and heighten the experience - but some of it is just so ****ing odd.

    New coaster coming to PortAventura?

    I'm excited for whatever it is they're building. The park is starting to potentially feel a little stagnant and resting on its laurels, so I'm looking forward to them investing a little more.

    Really excited about this project. More Big Dippers please. Also, this definitely looks like a top hat?

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    A little more information on Zamperla's Zetta Swing has surfaced online. Reported to reach a height of 60m and reach 90 km/h, it is certainly a beastly bit of kit. The article is in Italian, but can easily be translated through Google Translate. Article...

    Thorpe Park | Project Exodus | Mack Hyper Coaster? (UK's tallest coaster) | 2023/2024

    I'm really not against this, whatsoever? I think it delivers what the aim of it [potentially] is - high, fast and powerful, with a slight out of control feeling? If you look at the elements and sheer scale and forces it will deliver, there's nothing really in the UK that you can compare to it...

    Not sure where it's going, but another Sartori Amusement Inverted Coaster rolled off the production line and has had its TUV certification. Anyone know where it's going? Source...
