    Theme Park Maps

    I think a map should look interesting for themepark. As long as the connecting routes between different sections looks correct and the reference points are clear, a map is good enough for me. With this I mean that if I want to go from A to B, I should be able to see behind which attraction I...

    Rides that you would like more if they had different restraints

    Remove the leg protectors on RMC's. IMO the worse modern day restraints

    <h3>New for 2020!</h3> <p>Set off on a 3 person raft into the vast vortex, fly around dark twists and turns before dropping down into the unforeseen mouth of the Venus Flytrap. <i>Add speed, height, etc.</i></p> This is on their site in the code ;) This is a massive beginner fault from the dev...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    Its an unpopular opinio thread for this reason, but a launch does all but define a ride. The good thing about Mack Launchers is the rest of the ride, being it the smoothness, the inversions or whatever else

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I don't think that is an uncommon opinion (anymore). Except for the food maybe :p Compagnie Des Alpes is doing really great with all of their parcs, and I would argue that they are becoming one of the top players in the European Theme park Industries in regards to quality.

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster

    Isn't this more or less the "off the shelf version" of what Parc Asterixes coaster will be? I've the feeling I've seen this layour already a few times in different topics

    Your favourite roller coasters built before 1990

    You can not realy count that one as a pre 1990 cred, as it got a complete overhaul when becoming Psyke. Launch is different (a lot more forcefull), experience is (with the 100% indoor), and I think they replaced the track entirely as well...

    Overrated and Underrated Roller Coasters

    Smiler and Fenix I've never heard to be overrated, and for the Taron, Wodan and BM I would like to know how many times you've ridden them... Because in Europe they're at least top 3 in their type. Lost Gravity and D'wervelwind I've not heard to be low rated (For the second one it is seen as one...

    Walibi Holland | Untamed | RMC Robin Hood Conversion

    So, yesterday I visited Walibi Holland to get my 50th credit, being Untamed. Honestly it was a good 50th credit, but I really don't get why everybody is so crazy about this coaster. Spoiler, Taron stays on top, and I feel like Untamed wont even take a top 10% position. I only did 2 rides...

    Parc Astérix Launch Coaster for 2021

    Completely different is a big word, as all announced elements are still there, but indeed. This is not the layout from the video, but the layout that had been there before the video was shown. So in fact it's an earlier version of the layout

    Walibi Belgium | Popcorn Revenge | Alterface Erratic Dark Ride

    I said next to the screens, but I could have expressed myself better ;) For MoC the themeing is between the screens, because otherwise it would be just bland. So while shooting stuff, you literally have only the screens on a straight wall... That is not the case for Popcorn. Your positioning...

    Walibi Belgium | Popcorn Revenge | Alterface Erratic Dark Ride

    I have to be honest, and say that Popcorn Revenge is far above MoC, and that's also the opinion of everyone I got to ride it the previous months. Queue: I would say they're on par. Both nothing too spectacular, with just the recipes and stuff on the one hand andthe original posters on the...

    Can a coaster ever be too smooth?

    I think a lot of people are mixing up roughness with intensity. A coaster can be super smooth, yet super intense (or worse the other way around, super rough and not intense) I do agree though that a wooden coaster gets it's character from roughness. It should be a bumpy ride
