    Seeing them put those LSMs in place was just a bit sexy. A rare sight. Love that!

    The Best, The Wurst and The Gersts - A Week in Germany

    Glad you enjoyed it buddy! That wasn't at Glenwood Caverns was it?

    The Best, The Wurst and The Gersts - A Week in Germany

    Over a month has gone by since we did this wonderful trip and now with lockdown in place I find myself lost in reflecting even more on those amazing memories. I haven’t done a TR like some of the others as I really feel like @Serena , @Coop and @SilverArrow did a great job of summing up all my...

    Rank the RMC inversions

    Despite having little RMC experience, I'll still share my thoughts (or mirror others on here at least) on this one as any excuse to talk about these coasters is one that i'll gladly take. 1. Zero G Stall on Wildfire - Would I like to float upside down for a seemingly neverending time, hurtling...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I might have limited RMC experience and have not ridden that many coasters relative to others, but i'll give my two cents. Before riding an RMC I was very sceptical thinking there is no way that they could be as good as everyone claimed. I can say though that after getting on the two that I...

    Tripsdrill | Hals-Über-Kopf & Volldampf | Vekoma STC & Family Boomerang Coaster

    I haven't sadly, one of many coasters resting in the 2020 trip graveyard. At the moment that's the only coaster I can see competing with Hals-Über-Kopf for the best Vekoma title. Abyssus could catch me off guard though, I just think Lech will deliver better forces. Fingers crossed I'll get to...

    Tripsdrill | Hals-Über-Kopf & Volldampf | Vekoma STC & Family Boomerang Coaster

    Got on this on Friday and absolutely loved it. The drops, inversions and airtime hills (feels strange describing an invert as having airtime hills) were all lovely and floaty. It's so smooth, the elements are profiled so well and the restraints leave you so free that it is possibly the most...

    Lightning Rod Status

    What if they are retracking some of it with the iBox track? A bit like GCI have just done with White Lightning. People have been talking about a "pothole" at the bottom of LRs first drop for a while, so replacing that track seems like it would make sense. But maybe if they had iBox track on the...

    A beautiful read, summed up the day perfectly! Just a couple of notes to add on the ops and Alton that day as well, they were absolutely flying on some rides. It's the first time I've seen Galactica actually use its dual loading station for its intended purpose and Oblivion was running all 4...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Cheers guys! This is actually super helpful! Changed the thread name to Park open season schedule changes/extensions going forward.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Neither have I, but currently planning on visiting Florida in November. If Carowinds is fully open (including Fury) then I'd fly from Orlando to Charlotte and then back on one day of my trip. It's such a pain getting for the UK to the states, want to do as much as possible when I go.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Yeah there is nothing on their website to suggest that they'll have an alternative schedule, but wherever I heard it they seemed to have some insider knowledge.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    As parks slowly open back up and us enthusiasts start to plan new trips I think it would be helpful to know of changes that parks have made to extend their usual seasons and amend opening times. So feel free to post changes you know of here. Might manage to squeeze in some potentially overlooked...

    First park you’ll be going to

    Yeah I think a BPB/Alton Weekender as soon as the parks reopen will be happening for me

    The TV we watch...

    Yeah Tiger King is absolutely ****ing mental. A must watch.
  17. Slamming Coastercore


    Pretty heartbroken but i've just found out my flights have been cancelled. Going to delay this trip till 2021 now. I will be attempting to attend the CF Florida live instead ... if all this **** has cleared up by then.

    What positive things have you got to look forward to in the near future?

    Like @Benenen I should be seeing RATM in August, it's far enough away that I have some hope! Sadly apart from that all my other gigs/trips have been (or are likely to be) cancelled/postponed. The one thing though that has been slowly growing is a back catalogue of video games I've been...

    CANCELLED - Basic Beginnings | ALTON TOWERS | 22nd Mar 2020

    I'm doubtful too, but if it's open I'll be there. No question

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Yeah, got a Heidi/Hansa Trip in April which I would probably sacrifice if it meant that I wouldn't be allowed in the US too. Absolutely gutted.
