    What are your thoughts on sustained positive g’s/greying or blacking out?

    The closest I've been to greying out was the 2nd loop on Shaman in Gardaland. Didn't enjoy it whatsoever, so only ended up doing 1 ride on it.

    In your opinion, what's wrong with Derren Brown's Ghost Train, and why did it fail?

    Even the finale now seems to not be in the great state. For anyone that has ridden this year, what is the significance of numbers being given in the preshow? It made zero sense, especially when we were asked for them later in the attraction and nothing happened. DBGT definitely feels like it...

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

    20 rides is the amount that I will think has been a good day at a park, but will be fine as long as I get on all the major rides and coasters. Just feels like once you do that many, you've been able to properly explore the park.

    D’oh! Missed the single rider line?

    Red Force at Ferrari Land for its single rider line at the end of the queue. Still makes 0 sense

    Gardaland & MovieLand in 1 day?

    Looking back at the 2010s

    I think the biggest changes to the theme park industry as a whole is an increased focus on intellectual property and making more immersive, interactive experiences where you have a part to play. Coaster wise it's become more about crazy coaster with lapbars, with both RMC and Vekoma seeing major...

    Rank the Star Wars Movies (so far).
