    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Im currently in Spain, at my place just outside of Malaga. Everyone seems to be handling it very well here, everyone wears a mask when inside and most wear them outside while walking around too. However, the situation at the arrivals hall at Malaga airport on Saturday was nothing short of...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    I feel like they’re focusing on those countries because they’re typical summer holiday spots and that’s what the GP are worried about right now.

    Things you'd like to see more of and things you'd like to see less of in theme parks

    I'd love to see more lovely outside beer drinking/ride viewing spots. Some parks that have seeeriously got this right- PA (for example the bar area in mediterrania near Furious Baco), Phantasialand (Klugheim), Liseberg (Tyrolen Beer Garden looks out over Valkyria). Magic.

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    So pleased they're opening an entrance from Matamba, having to walk round the exterior of the hotel through Hotel Ling Bao really broke your immersion. Can't wait to get back to this fecking great park.

    Efteling | Max & Moritz | Mack Powered Coasters

    I haven't really been following this thread, but I think this looks great! Personally I found Bob to be uncomfortable and boring, so a couple of Mack powered coasters is always a good replacement. Perfect for their demographic too.

    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.
