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

    They've just over-engineered this one tbh. This variant doesn't really add any thrill aspect except for travelling backwards briefly (at a sacrifice of riders per hour I imagine). They should have just modified the existing circuit layout IMO.

    Hyperion vs Shambhala

    Hyperion is far inferior - the first three elements are amazing, but the rest is just speed corners and not much else. Plus on the outer seats it really judders. Shambhala is a little less unique but is about as solid as a hyper can get. Plus the trains are much better with the inner/ outer layout.

    That's kinda awesome. Looks to be side friction right?

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach 26th / 27th May 2021 Quick report

    Here's a quick one to provide some updates and personal thoughts about BPB. I first visited 15 months back, so this is a bit of a revisit report with @Climb - two full days on park and new creds ridden. New tickets The ticketing system now relies on your mobile phone rather than old-school...

    Bollywood Parks Dubai | Bombay Express | GCI Wooden Hybrid Coaster | 2021

    Yeah definitely getting a Balder vibe from the layout, although I think Balder is actually more compact than this one tbh.

    The World of David Walliams is coming to Alton Towers

    It's fine I guess. 5 mins isn't too bad a ride time and has some nice effects, just nothing exactly awe-inspiring . I'm happy Alton Towers has another decent dark ride (until the IP runs out and it gets removed) 😏

    Wicker Man vs Megafobia

    From watching a POV of Megafobia filmed in 1996 vs a POV filmed in 2019, there's no slow down in the ride duration once it left the lift hill. In fact it was one second faster now based on the video I chose at least.

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    I think we'd all be fooling ourselves if we're trying to pretend Icon is anywhere near this ride 😬.

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    That looks very intense - such impressive pacing. Even the first half looks rapid.

    The World of David Walliams is coming to Alton Towers

    I mean, Max and Moritz wasn't exactly a small addition - it cost 15m Euros. But I agree - no park has to ensure each new addition is huge and impressive. I just don't think this ride looked overly interesting. I think that's fine for me to say. Money spent on the IP so the ride turns out...

    The World of David Walliams is coming to Alton Towers

    Why is it that Alton Towers are going for a 'small family-aimed dark ride' though? This is one of the UK's biggest theme parks... I just wish they try something a bit more interesting/ exciting. I know we talk about Symbolica a lot, but just compare the two. I'm sure families will enjoy the IP...

    Always thought this looks pretty crazy, so glad it's still going to be running.

    The World of David Walliams is coming to Alton Towers

    I feel like I watched something different, because to me it just seemed like a load of screens and not much else? I wish AT would try a bit harder.

    Glenwood Caverns | Defiance | Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter | 2022

    Very intriguing. I don't see the inversion record being beaten - 15+ is just too much surely, The 'One-of-a-kind' is what stands out for me. Potentially unique terrain I'm thinking

    New rides @ small parks

    I rode Banzai (presumably the same one unless there are multiples of this thing) in France back in 2005 or so. I remember very uncomfortable OTHRs, and the drop being intense. It's impressive for a travelling ride - surely the tallest travelling coaster out there?

    Bollywood Parks Dubai | Bombay Express | GCI Wooden Hybrid Coaster | 2021

    I'm intrigued: can airtime quantifiably be measured then? And if so, surely the amount of airtime differs morning vs afternoon as the coaster warms up. And for a coaster not tested yet, can they be certain it'll hold such a record? Hmmmm looks great and a cool theme too but sounds a bit of a...
