    Coasters that have gotten better with age?

    I know it got re-tracked prior to the 2018 season and it ran a lot better for me then than it did in 2016.

    Skyline Park remove Sky Dragster after 3 years

    That must not have lasted long because when I went most of the staff didn’t do a darn thing.

    Six Flags Fiesta Texas 2022

    Fiesta Texas’s park president has already said we’re not getting chain-wide announcements this year. And @Cranedude it is July 28th.

    What do you consider a “good” ride count at a theme park?

    I feel like I always try to get ten rides in at minimum when visiting a park, and that’s if I have to leave a park early because of time or health reasons. On a busy day I gun for at least fifteen, 20+ on a quiet day. I have done 30+ numerous times in the past, but I’m not sure if I have the...

    Fuji-Q Announces Major New Coaster for 2022!

    Are we sure this actually is a Maurer Spike and not just the Intamin model that popped up a while back? I feel like that concept art isn’t very true to life.

    Belgian and Dutch parks floodings

    That’s a little extreme. Fun Pilot is entirely elevated above the floodwater, and Pulsar’s area should be able to be drained. Plus, whatever parts may need to be replaced due to flood damage their respective manufacturers should be able to whip up since their respective models are still under...

    Belgian and Dutch parks floodings

    I can report firsthand that Walibi Belgium had to close at 2 P.M today due to excessive rain and flooding (Kondaa was already out by 12.30 and from Dalton Terror I could see that the whole area under the non-inverted cobra roll was already flooded), so this weather is sadly affecting most of the...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    I wouldn’t say it takes up any less space than the S&S drop tower next door. Plus, Tivoli’s been on a roll with replacing aging rides with new ones that take up the exact same footprint. I’d be surprised if something didn’t happen with that plot.

    Exclusion notice from theme parks

    Wasn’t the guy who got a F.L.Y. POV online also barred for life? I know they went out of their way to take down anyone who as much as re-posted that video on Youtube.

    Cookie Goes To Europe (Germany, Belgium, and France)

    For the record, those are all 5+ hours away from where I’m staying with public transport, and train tickets aren’t exactly cheap at the moment. I don’t see the benefit beating the expense in making those kinds of trips, even for extra creds. And I don’t feel like pushing myself too hard. My...

    Cookie Goes To Europe (Germany, Belgium, and France)

    So ever since F.L.Y. was announced literally a week after my first visit to Phantasialand back in 2017, I’ve been planning a return trip to the park. This kept getting pushed back as F.L.Y kept not opening, and the finalised plans in 2020 that were supposed to include a trip through the...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    ...Huh. Didn’t except it to go away that soon. It was the single most terrifying ride I’ve ever experienced and I swore it off after my one and only ride anyway, but this surprises me still.

    Plopsaland de Panne | The Ride to Happiness | Mack Xtreme Spinning Coaster | 2021

    Any word on how this "soft-opening" period is going to work? I know it'll be free for all visitors and it'll close early on the 21st, but is the ride otherwise going to open with the park and stay open until close (weather and reliability be willing), or is it only going to be running at certain...

    Tonnerre de Zeus to be Renovated for 2022? [updated]

    ...It's still going to be open when I hopefully visit in four weeks, right? I'm not against the refurbishment I just don't want to miss out on the coaster because of this.

    Movie Park Germany | Movie Park Studio Tour | Intamin Multi Dimension Coaster | 2021

    I guess my main takeway is damn is it moving hella fast through those darkride sections. Not sure how much of your surroundings you’re going to be able to take in considering how it flies past some of those scenes.

    New-Gen Zamperla Coasters

    If it’s $10 million for Thunderbolt at Luna Park specifically and not the price for an off the shelf clone, then R&D costs could be included with it being the first of its kind.

    Wild Eagle was also evacuated after a sudden jolt a few days ago and Thunderbird has apparently been down for days. Not a good time for U.S wing coasters.
