    Energylandia | Abyssus | Vekoma Shockwave+ | 2021

    Why do you say "Chinese knockoff". Why sound so condescending? If you've actually seen theming at Chinese amusement parks you'd realize that it's better than just about anywhere else on Earth. From what I've been to China Dinosaur Land, World Joyland, and Haichang Ocean Park felt on par with...

    CoasterForce’s Favourite Florida Rollercoasters

    I'll give this one a shot. Overall rank in parenthesis. Velocicoaster and Iron Gwazi should help to perhaps sneak a Floridian coaster into my top ten. Tentatively planning to visit next winter once the hype (and Covid) die down. 1. (14) Mako 2. (27) Hagrid's 3. (29) Mine Blower 4. (34) Montu 5...

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    That shot at 0:26 is just obscene. How did Grona Lund and B&M manage to install this ride??

    Do you prefer steel roller coasters or wooden roller coasters?

    It's definitely got to be wood for me. Of the 219 coasters I've ridden, 47 are wooden (21.5%). Of my top 30, 40% are wooden. Of my top five coasters, 60% are wooden.

    Nigloland | Krampus Expedition | Mack Water Coaster | 2021

    It really doesn't look so bad at all. For what it is, it should be a good, fun ride, and at least they put some effort into theming it!

    Do you have any theme park guilty pleasures?

    My guilty pleasure is definitely when a park has secluded nature-centric areas. The quaint bridges, trails, and spiral stairways, at the back corner of Liseberg behind the Ferris Wheel are honestly part of what make it such an untouchable park for me. Other good examples from my experience are...

    Your Top 10 coasters that you've ridden the least

    Cheetah at Wild Adventures retired

    Such a sad announcement from this park, and yet another woodie closed with no chance for final rides. Really sad to see wooden coasters disappearing from this planet faster than they are being built, especially one that had as good of a layout as this. I never got to ride, but it looked like a...

    Coasters past their Primes

    Gonna have to disagree massively here. I never rode it in its prime I suppose, but my rides in 2018 were incredible. Rough, yes, but excellently paced and delivered great forces the whole way around

    What is the most surprising airtime moment you’ve experienced in your enthusiast career?

    Some notable ones for me: The high five on Dauling Dragons. I figured they'd be a pop of air and lats but it delivered some insane ejector! Skull Mountain's first drop, duh Dinoconda's zero g roll. I honestly didn't know what to expect here, but it delivered some of strangest and craziest...

    Walibi Belgium | Kondaa | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    I wood (pun intended) personally prefer not to see any more wooden RMC conversions and instead see new ground up RMCs. We need the classic wooden coasters to live on, especially when the Vekoma ones (at least Thundercoaster) are so great. Really bummed that I never got to try Robin Hood even...

    World Fairytale Land | Hainan China | Theme Park

    The scope of this project is just outrageous. That's a 50 meter top hat entirely within a mountain, which looks 70-80 meters tall. So excited to see the finished product
