    Intamin Blitz, Vekoma Shockwave or Mack Multi-Launch

    Personally I find Mack Multi-launches too calm if that's a way of putting it? I haven't ridden any Vekoma shockwaves but by the looks of the restrains they don't offer the exposure that Intamin's current lap bars do. I'm all for snappy and intense launches and Intamin seems to be the best at...

    Your most embarrassing theme park moments

    The exact same thing happened to me a few years back. Was walking underneath just minding my own business then got absolutely drenched. Safe to say the folks in the queue line were entertained 😂

    CoasterForce COVID-19 Vaccination Poll

    I was 19 when I got my last AstraZeneca jab (I work with a lot of the public and sometimes vulnerable people). Felt awful from the first dose but not a thing from the second. Will admit I was a bit sketchy about getting it after hearing all the stuff about blood clots however I've been fine ever...

    Favourite coaster inversions?

    A few that have been mentioned as above: Nemesis' Zero-G over the station. Montu's batwing. One that first sprung to mind for me was the Zero-G roll straight after the launch on The Incredible Hulk - some serious whip on that. Another inversion that I absolutely loved was the Pretzel Loop on...

    Islands of Adventure vs Magic Kingdom

    Clear winner is IOA for me. As much as I was amazed by Magic Kingdom and loved the classic feel it had to it, I just can't see anything beating IOA in my opinion. The music as you enter, walking down Port of Entry and hearing Hulk in the background. The view of the castle at MK whilst walking...

    Marmite Coasters

    A marmite coaster that springs to mind for me is Icon. Some think it's the best coaster in the UK. Some however, find it tame and forceless. Gotta say I was really let down with it - went on it so many times to see if it'd change my mind but I just couldn't get what all the hype was about. It...

    Silverwood | Stunt Pilot | RMC Raptor | 2021

    Yeah I gotta admit I much prefer the intensity of the first two raptors. This and JD seem to be much more graceful through their layouts. They still look like great coasters and they're still fast, but I've just built up an expectation from the first two that these things are made to be insane...

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi | 2021

    On looking around, there's nothing to say it will be pushed back to 2022. I think if they knew that, they would have already announced it. They've been advertising new recruitment spaces too for new staff (ride operators included), this could be a sign that they're trying get enough folks to be...

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi | 2021

    Now that you mentioned it, that's all I can hear in the upper queue section 😂 Honestly though I'm digging the middle half, love the dark jungle vibes it gives off.

    Theme park soundtracks that get stuck in your head

    One that I remember not being able to get out my head was the music played around Little Monsters at Flamingo Land. Can't find it anywhere but boy did that get annoying
