    Deno's Wonder Wheel Park | Phoenix | Vekoma Suspended coaster | 2021

    Someone took Michigan's Adventure SLC as an example of how not to paint a roller coaster. Post sponsored by McDonald's.

    Theme park soundtracks that get stuck in your head

    Off the top of my head: - Furius Baco's silly theme song. - TTD's Ready to go (I can still picture waiting for boarding the first time listening to this and getting reeeally pumped!) - Some Disney classics (SM:DLTALL, Phantom Manor, Splash Mountain) - Phantasialand's Taron, Chiapas, Black...

    Fårup Sommerland 2022

    I guess Vekoma owns them a decent coaster after having tricked them into buying Saven.

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    According to reports, ride is running four trains reaching an average of over 1,300 guests per hour. They can do better than that (I think they aim at 1,800 pph), but I guess that's what soft openings are for, right?

    Silverwood | Stunt Pilot | RMC Raptor | 2021

    But why tone it down? If riding in a single file, going down at a 90° angle from 100+ feet with many inversions doesn't scream "extreme" it's not the coaster to blame, but people's judgement. Not every ride has to be for everybody, and if you can't read a coaster by looking at it (unless it's...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I couldn't sum up my feelings about the park better.

    Silverwood | Stunt Pilot | RMC Raptor | 2021

    I feel like this is a downgrade from the original model? I mean, from an operations standpoint having longer trains is a plus but if that is at a cost of altering the ride elements so much, I am no sure how this is going to turn out. The 90° drop, for instance, was one of the ride's highlights...

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    I've heard it has quite a rattle for being such a new ride. Intamin rattle curse strikes again?

    Silverwood | Stunt Pilot | RMC Raptor | 2021

    Judging by the amount of speed these raptors gain upon leaving the lift hill I can't picture a train stalling.

    Familypark Neusiedlersee 2022 Attraction

    I visited Rhône-Alpes last summer and I was blown away by Mystic. I think a coaster as creative and compact as that one could do wonders for such a small park.

    Been on one at Tivoli Friheden. It was such a fun disorienting ride! Love to see more popping up!

    Paultons Park | Tornado Springs | New Area | 2021

    Paulton's just kicked Merlin's ass with these additions. They proved that you can theme properly and choose suitable, good-looking, quality attractions for the whole family. Genuinely excited about Tornado Springs opening. Well-done!

    Chessington World Of Adventures | Croc Drop | Zamperla Sky (Drop) Tower

    ^You can't compare Condor to this. Bloody hell, 180 ****ing minutes for such a short, dull, drop ride? No thanks. Hard pass. I must admit that the croc mouth themeing is on point but the ride's hardware is really poor-looking and the ride cycle is lackluster to say the least. Definitely not a...

    Big One Re-Tracking @Pleasure Beach

    Movie Park Germany | Unknown | Intamin Multi Dimension Coaster | 2021

    I said this about Van Helsing when it was being built and I am glad I was proven wrong upong riding it and realising there was so much more to it than just the track. I think this is the case again, because so far the ride looks dull and uninteresting. Sure, coaster in a box with track switches...

    Fuji-Q Announces Major New Coaster for 2022!

    Maybe they pitched that idea initially to get a general feel of the concept but I agree this looks too generic. For some reasons, these motocoasters don't quite do it for me. I am sure Fuji-Q will go for some kind of world record. After all, they are kind of land-locked, so they wouldn't invest...

    Slowest and fastest coaster braking systems?

    Fun fact: during some seasons back in the mid 00s the air pressure from the brakes was off and despite the multiple pinches from the brakes the train kept overshooting, so they ended up not loading the front car. Over time, the park reprogrammed the controls to allow full trains again, as it was...

    Slowest and fastest coaster braking systems?

    I must agree with EuroSat's brakes being the most aggressive before they were retrofitted with magnetic fins. In general it seems that B&M tend to get trains in and out of braking sections quite slowly applying brakes multiple times thus controlling the speed at which the train is moving and to...

    Tayto Park News/Discussion

    More creeeds yay! Really happy for Tayto, as with this they will have a really balanced park. Add a couple more coasters and a drop tower and it will be a park to really watch.

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    Fully obsessed with the wheel-cover design. Man, what a killer combo: lime green and black!
