    Kings Dominion Volcano and Crypt Replacements

    Interesting. It looks like it could be relocated (compact, on flat ground etc.), so could be a Six Flags style ride rotation. By the way, the other removed Mack Bobsled is still up for sale, 15 years after it last operated!

    Dreamworld Australia | Steel Taipan | Modified Blue Fire Clone | 2021

    Powerland in Finland: Heide Park still wins with its four white coasters all clustered together (Big Loop, Limit, Flug & Bobbahn), although different track types.

    Paultons Park | Farmyard Flyer | Custom Zierer Force | 2022

    And the rotary piston: This is much older technology, from before gas turbines were invented, typical for biplanes such as the crop duster that Paultons are going for :) .

    Paultons Park | Farmyard Flyer | Custom Zierer Force | 2022

    Nah I don't think you'd have a turboprop on a crop duster biplane, that definitely looks more like a rotary piston propeller engine to me :p.

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    "The Legend" - is that what some enthusiast calls himself/herself!? I'm not sure whether to laugh or throw up.

    Are the seats on Colossus particularly small?

    Yes they are notorious, I've seen many a walk of shame on Colossus, some of them from people who you wouldn't have expected to have an issue, looking at them. Even as a pretty skinny bloke I find it difficult to get in and out due to the horrible bulky restraints

    New roller coaster and children’s rides for Chessington

    "A new roller coaster and other children's rides" - sounds like a kiddie coaster to me. As much as I'd love it to be a mini GG woodie, I think something like Octonauts is far more likely. Still, any investment is good news in this day and age, especially as it's been so long since Chessington...

    Orion - Kings Island Cred

    While this whole topic is a clear and obvious example of somebody having made a joke online, and somebody else taking it much too seriously, I love the direction it has taken with thermal expansion calculations; I even did a quick check myself to see if I agreed with your estimates (I do)!

    The World of David Walliams is coming to Alton Towers

    Is it just me, or does David seem a bit underwhelmed in that video?

    Make fun of my favorite roller coaster.

    Helix - what a steaming pile of wasted potential. Two rolling launches should be great fun but with the Mack LSM launch you barely notice them. If Intamin had built this thing it would be amazing. Then there's that final barrel roll - it somehow manages to be even more slow and awkward that the...

    Record breaking Gerstlauer coaster coming to the USA

    My money's on the steepness record too. They'll just keep making drops which are a degree or 2 steeper each time until they get to the "180 degree drop" then realise that S&S already did that back in 2005 and Gardaland had the record all along.

    New rides @ small parks

    A cred's a cred 🤷‍♂️, the first couple of swings look quite fun, the 5 mins + it seems to take to stop after that look extremely tedious.

    We still have to go to Flamingo *Park* though. 🤷‍♂️

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Looks like this is confirmed now: I'd been counting on getting this cred at Dreamland this summer, looks like I'll have to make a detour to Hastings now. Here's an aerial photo (Bing maps) to illustrate Will's point about the park: For Dreamland, this was the 3rd...

    Big One Re-Tracking @Pleasure Beach

    Where did you hear that, the PBE video!? Also, am I the only one who doesn't recall that final tunnel being much/any rougher than the rest of the ride?
