    Holiwood kNights & Keys to the Kingdom - Part 1

    I wasn’t going to write up a report for this, as I’ve done a couple reports on each of these parks in the past (including one just last year), but a lot of unique and unexpected stuff happened this weekend. I’ll focus on those highlights, and keep my opinions on the rides themselves brief. I...

    Hutch Visits His Home Park - Canobie Lake Park

    I don’t think I’ve ever done a trip report of Canobie, but that’s probably because I’ve only gone a couple times over the last several years, despite it being the park closest to me. Well this year, I made the effort to return not only once, but twice?! Ok, so the second visit wasn’t actually...

    Rearrange the Above User's Top 10!

    You think someone ranks a coaster too high in their Top 10? Does another cred on their list deserve to be higher? Does Steel Vengeance not being someone's No. 1 infuriate you? Well, now's your chance to prove them they're wrong! Whenever someone makes a post, take the coasters in their Top 10...

    Rank the Giga Coasters

    Because giga coasters are the best rides in the whole world!!!! *ahem* Only done two. Here they are: 1. Millennium Force - Actually a pretty well rounded ride and holds up tremendously well. Amazing drop, some good positive gs (I tend to grey out in the first overbank), and a mix of solid...

    Hutch's Roller Coaster Road Trip - Final Part: S**t Flags Great Adventure

    Let’s do this. I had a few reasons of putting this trip together. Obviously there were a lot of big rides and parks I wanted to check and try again. Steel Vengeance was a big one. After hearing unanimous praise about it last year, I couldn’t wait another year to pass up on that puppy. I needed...

    Apple Watches on Roller Coasters?

    So I just got an Apple Watch and I was wondering if it’d be safe and secure enough wear it on all the big creds. I’m using the standard Velcro strap. I’m sure it’s fine but with it being a brand new and expensive device for me I want to be sure of the risk before I go all out on the creds this...

    Worst Coasters of the 2010s

    I was taking a look at my spreadsheet and viewing what rides I have rated the lowest. Excluding the kiddy crap, my least favorite coasters are made up of stand ups, boomerangs, SLCs, some painful woodies, Kingda Ka, and any other crap Arrow or Vekoma loopers. Thing is though, all of these have...

    Rank the Schwarzkopf Loopers

    Time for another "Rank the xxx" thread! 1. Mind Bender - Good drops with some nice airtime, solid loops, and decent location. Not much wrong with it really. 2. SooperDooperLooper - My first Schwarzy, but nothing real special. It rides more like a mine train after the loop, but it was still...

    Can Length Affect a Ride's Quality?

    The recent POV of Maxx Force left me disappointed with the ride's length, especially how it ends, and I imagine its length will likely be a part of the conversation when discussing the ride's quality (you know, once people ride the thing). It got me thinking of other coasters where the length...

    Hutch's Planet Coaster Creations

    So I finally got Planet Coaster. Been playing for a few days now, trying to familiarize myself with all the mechanics and whatnot. It's basically everything I've wanted out of an "RCT4," but it's very overwhelming, particularly with all the scenery stuff. I'm currently working on a park, but...

    Rank the B&M Dive Machines

    Might as well have one for these, right? 1. Griffon - My first DM and it's still my favorite. It has the usual drop into the Immelmann, but the extra airtime moments in the second half elevate it to the top. Splashdown is nice too. 2. Valravn - With the best inversion selection and a nice...

    South East Creds - Part 3: A Six Flags Day

    Part 1 – Carowinds My family and I usually do a major coaster trip (usually a few parks) around this time in June, so this time it we visited Carowinds, Dollywood, and Six Flags Over Georgia for the first time. Nice way to kick off the 2018 season. On Friday, June 8th, we got up at an early...

    Improvements for Each Coaster in Your Top Ten

    Take a look at your top ten (or some of your favorites, if you don't have a definite list), go through each coaster and think of improvements/modifications you wish the ride had to make it even better. Here's what I think for my Top Ten. 1. Skyrush - Better restraint system to remove the...

    Quassy Cred Run (+ Lake Compounce)

    This summer hasn’t been too exciting for me when it comes to theme parks. I didn’t do anything at all in June/July/August. Because of my summer job, weekends were really the only free time I but naturally I'd rather avoid going to theme parks then. I did have a few weeks off from the end of my...

    Hutch's RCT2 Thread - Pratt Falls Update

    I've been playing this game on and off for several years, but I recently downloaded OpenRCT2 on my Macbook, which makes RCT much more accessible for me to play than the **** laptop I used to play it on. I went and started a new park on the Extreme Heights scenario and wanted to share some of my...

    Florida March 2017 - Day 4: Fun Spot America

    In recent years, my family and I have gone skiing out west for spring break, but this year my older siblings were unable to get enough time off from work. So since it was just my parents and I, we decided to go fly down to Florida and stay at the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Resort to do some...

    Long Overdue Knoebels PTR (August '16)

    I wrote most of this months ago but schoolwork had prolonged me finishing this. And for a while I just never really bothered to post this (it's been some time since I've posted anything on here I think). Oh well, better late than never, right? Back in late August, my dad and I did a college...

    Midwest Credding: Day 4 - Cedar Point Part 2

    I recently returned from a big trip (for me at least; it was probably the biggest theme park trip I’ve ever done). 4 parks, 3 new to me, and another I’d done in the past. Swept up 30 new creds, including my 100th, and no spite (except for a couple of +1’s that had height restrictions which I...

    Choose 5 Coasters to Ride for the Rest of Your Life

    I've been thinking of this idea for a while now, and that similar "You can only ride one manufacture" topic a little while ago (forget who started that topic, sorry) brought the idea back to my attention. I think the title is pretty self-explanatory. A common initial thought may be "Well my...

    Your Favorite Theme Park Moments

    I was just looking through some of my old trip reports that I did a year or two back, reliving some of the fun memories I had at theme parks. Some of these memories and past moments just bring to myself to joy, and I thought this could be a nice idea for a thread: sharing a handful of your...
