    Biggest Disappointment...

    In regards to Olympia Looping, you have to remember it's a 30 year old coaster. It's phenomenal that it's running as well as it is after all this time being moved around. I rode it mid December and it was super smooth. Much smoother than last year actually. I've ridden it several times now and I...

    Your biggest positive surprise?

    Lightning Run for sure. I actually enjoyed this more than Storm Chaser. It's a fantastic ride and I have no idea why another park hasn't built one since. Kentucky Kingdom seriously have a winner on their hands with this!

    Is it a cred? - A general discussion topic

    I used to count relocations too but then one day decided it was a silly idea so dropped my count by about 10. Oh well.

    Is it a cred? - A general discussion topic

    I think the thing to remember is that overall it's a very very subjective thing and if someone else doesn't agree then it's not the end of the world. That's the way I approach it anyway. And to be honest, the whole coaster counting thing actually has no use anyway apart from something fun to...

    Rank Togo’s operating and defunct roller coaster

    It really is quite amazing that a ride that old had a turntable, a tilt mechanism and a vertical lift. It still runs beautifully and I hope it does long into the future! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is it a cred? - A general discussion topic

    I normally go along with my own thoughts about the matter. I really do not mind if someone agrees with what I consider a coaster or not. It's a personal opinion but still fun to see what others opinions are. My own opinions are similar to @Hixee above but with a few changes: Relocation: No new...

    Southport Pleasureland future

    Definitely looks like Crazy Train too me going by the square style supports. Spinning Racer is the also other possibility going by Reddit but that is more dark blue track and this track looks to be more purple.

    Your Credit Approach at a New Park

    I want to try to ride all the coasters but try to do the park in a sensible orde rather than jump from one side of the park to another (that's what you learn from having Alton Towers as your home park). Over time you get to know how long a queue may take from the type of coaster it is so you...

    Rank the B&M Dive Machines

    Dreamworld Australia To Close Tower Of Terror

    It's a shame to hear about this. The original Tower of Terror was actually one of the first coasters I ever rode and it absolutely terrified me at the time! I'm sure Dreamworld will never be the same again without the roar and insanely loud noise blasting over the park as it launches! Things...

    Thunderbird, Holiday World - Loved the launch. Much more intense than expected and the whole ride feels balanced throughout. Was a little bumpier than expected though. Fenix, Toverland - Beautifully themed and a lovely smooth layout, however too short. GateKeeper, Cedar Point - Just such a big...
