    Which park has the most well-rounded overall ride selection in terms of quality?

    For me, it's between Phantasialand and Liseberg. Europa just can't quite cut it as it's lacking in thrill rides, three thrill rides (Wodan, Silver Star and Blue Fire) amongst a whole host of family rides is unbalanced to me (still love the place though!).

    Your Credit Approach at a New Park

    Generally start with a warm up coaster (using Liseberg as an example, like Lisebergbanan) then head to something good (like Helix/Valkyria). Hit up all the good creds/water/flat rides in a logical order geographically around the park then re-ride all the biggies.

    What are your thoughts on forced participation in theme parks?

    Interaction is great, but I certainly dont want to BE the show/attraction. No involvement in shows (bleurgh) but love the roaming actors at Halloween events and scare mazes.

    Sweden (and a little bit of Norway) – August 2019 {Day 4: Liseberg}

    Love hearing first time reactions to Liseberg. Gorgeous little park. I was there the weekend before (judging from your 'pay day' comment) and it was pretty rammed too. The Sunday was muuuuuuch more civilised.

    Liseberg | Helix | Mack Megacoaster

    Was at the park last weekend, Helix was riding like **** off a shovel. The ejector was insane. Muuuch stronger than when I rode it for the first time a couple of years ago.

    Last Cred Review

    Valkyria- really great coaster, views from the top of the lift hill are awesome but those god damn vest restraints... they don’t lock but you still lose any decent airtime. Themeing is fab, great soundtrack and some nice subtly projection mapping in the station. Was extra special at night as...

    Phantasialand Season Pass hotel advantages?

    What a shame... probably wont bother staying on site or getting the annual pass now as it'll just work out too expensive. Boo :(

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    She sounds like a lunatic. It’ll never happen.

    Dubious Claims

    Yep. Well respected member of the forums too. I get the impression the ‘scariest’ coaster was due to the theme and actors involved rather than the actual hardware!!

    Opinions on the best European coaster, and why

    I have to say I'm LOVING this thread, just shows us how many awesome coasters we've had in Europe in the last 7-10 years or so with Taron, Helix, Hyperion, Wildfire, Shambhala, Untamed, Zadra etc...

    What theme park's entrance is your favourite?

    I quite like that it's rubbish, such a contrast between the entrance and the rest of the park.. almost like a hidden secret, but I ****ing love PL so they can't do much wrong in my opinion!!
