    The Boardwalk | Cedar Point | Wild Mouse and Ride Relocation | 2023

    That’s a damn good question. I’m still rooting for a gerstlauer family launch coaster similar to firechaser express (or maybe even something like Verbolten) to replace Cedar Creek Mine Ride when’s its service life is up. It seems like a clear gap in their line up

    The Boardwalk | Cedar Point | Wild Mouse and Ride Relocation | 2023

    For years they had Wildcat, which with its four person seater cars had to have similar capacity, and it was fine. At CP it’s not going to be star attraction or anything

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

    Yeah I really don’t understand the practice of B&M dive coasters almost always having the near dead stop on the MCBR before another steep drop. The steep drops after are never that special where they’re worth killing the momentum that completely. Skip the extra “dive,” have minimal speed...

    Ankara, Turkey | Wonderland Eurasia | Theme Park

    Disagree. They can graft it onto the Ultimate, giving it a third lifthill and extending its length to a nearly unbeatable record *with 10 whole inversions on top of it.* Franken-Ultimate.

    SFMM | Wonder Woman Flight of Courage | RMC Raptor | 2022

    It’s been interesting, I was more of an adrenaline junkie when I was younger, and now the last two years I’ve had significant chronic fatigue/long COVID symptoms. Before I definitely would’ve been in the “excited but don’t think this’ll be top ten for me” crowd to “this is kinda exactly what I...

    Hershey Park | Wildcat's Revenge | RMC Wildcat | 2023

    I’d put my bets at 90% RMC and 10% titan track GCI. I think given the proximity to the closure date of the coaster and the fact that Hershey is pretty much outright stating that they have an announcement for a conversion of some type up their sleeve, RMC’s reply is part of getting the hype train...

    Man arrested after base jump from the top of Red Force

    Tbh the scariest part for me was just watching him climb the track, looked like a very easy way to slip and fall to one’s death. The jump itself seemed easy and low risk in comparison.

    Mandoria | Cararra | Mack Powered Coaster | 2022

    Hehehe thanks for teaching me; the teacher has become the student *bows*

    Mandoria | Cararra | Mack Powered Coaster | 2022

    It’s simply that an electrical current is used to power the trains; if you look at the track on this coaster, there’s a grey rail running on top of the normal coaster track (circled in yellow here). An electrical current is run through this rail to power the coaster wheels and also to brake...

    Mandoria | Cararra | Mack Powered Coaster | 2022

    If you want just a hint, think about subway systems/the tube

    Parque Warner Madrid | Gotham City Escape | Intamin Launch Coaster | 2023

    Yeah, best hope for Alton is a Maverick style intamin blitz as it avoids the height issues

    California's Great America - Park sold, eventually closing

    This part. It’s very normal and healthy for businesses to operate with a significant amount of debt (just like it’s normal for families to have a mortgage); CGA just seems to have headaches and uncertainties that aren’t present at other parks

    Flamingo Land | Sik | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2022

    Why would placeholder values be so close to the actual values though? If they were placeholders they would be unrelated instead of being the correct height except the decimal is placed incorrectly.

    Flamingo Land | Sik | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2022

    If it’s 3.3m tall why even have steel supports, could just have Shaquille O’Neil standing with his arms stretched above his head and it would hold the lift hill up to the appropriate height.
