    Music that reminds you of Theme Parks

    Be it pop music used as ride music or just on the radio on route to the park, is there any non-theme park music that reminds you of coasters and/or theme parks in general? This can include ride music used on a different ride and/or park than intended. For me, my best example for this would be...

    High Speed Powered Coasters

    Something I've pondered for a while. The vast majority of powered coasters tend to be family orientated at relatively slow speeds. Would it be possible to create a more thrill-orientated powered coaster with higher speeds more comparable to traditional thrill coasters (e.g. 50mph+)? Granted...

    This is something I've pondered for a while and not sure of the answer or if it makes any difference. It was in the news a while back that European firms are choosing cheaper, (supposedly) lower quality Chinese steel over European steel, fuelling closure fears for British Steel plants. Likely...

    Duplo Dream - New Coaster for Legoland Windsor 2020

    Just posted on their FB page. Doubt it's anything major but is needed, especially considering the only 2 coasters there opened with the park...

    Quantity over Quality - NL, DE, BE August 2019

    Tomorrow, I will be embarking on a massive 2000+ mile, 19 day roadtrip (in my own car) of the Netherlands, visiting almost every park in the area. Whole trip should been around +65, only around 10 of which might be notable and good quality.... (Including Untamed!!!) Due to the length of this...

    Premier Sky Rockets

    The official model name of the likes of Tempesto is the Sky Rocket II and Full Throttle is often referred to as a Sky Rocket III. This has left me wondering, what was Sky Rocket 1? Was it the Mr Freeze Reverse Blast models or something else that was planned but never built? (similarly to...

    Merlin vs Parques Reunidos

    Been a lot of negativity regarding both these companies on here recently with both companies being criticised for not investing and leaving parks to rot. If only 1 of these companies ran every theme park in the world, which company would you prefer? (including both companies side projects e.g...

    Parques Reunidos Opinions

    This is a topic that seems to come up a lot in separate threads so thought it might be an idea to try and centralise them, have been wanting to do so for a while. Feel free to lock if not suitable. Although I don't have much experience with them personally, I do not see PR as a particularly bad...

    Overshadowed Coasters

    This for all those coasters out there which should be good in their own right but just don't live up to expectations, be it due to other better rides in the park or personally ridden recently. These rides may have fantastic stats and look amazing rides but just something causes it to not be as...

    Ice Mountain

    Sorry if this has been asked before but I'm confused over the status of the Ice Mountain spinning mouse ride usually at Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. I understand it used to be owned by Mellors before being sold off recently to James Crow. Whats confusing is that while RCDB mentions that it was...

For those who didn’t already know, I recently went on a 2 week trip to Spain, covering the Madrid parks, Zaragoza, Barcelona, Tibidabo and Port Aventura. This is was my first time ever in Spain so...

    Best Non-spite You've Had

    We've had numerous topics recently discussing various spites we have had as a community where rides have been unexpectedly closed. This topic is the exact opposite of that: What coasters did you expect to be closed when visiting the park but were actually open to riders? Same goes for children's...

    Crash on Steel Vengeance!

    Apparantly the Digger train overshot the final breakrun and went into the back of the Chess train being dispatched from the station. I know it runs fast but didn't expect that fast! Seemingly, SV has has a smooth, uneventful opening day and also should shut up the people worrying about the...

    Tiger Falls - Retheme of Dragon Falls at CWOA

    Quick search of forums shows no current topic for this so thought I'd create it. In short, the old Dragon Falls log Flume at Chessington is getting rethemed to tigers and will feature live tigers around the main drop. (screenshot sent to me by a friend, presumably originally from SouthParks...

    Lightwater Valley sold

    According to the article below, Lightwater has just been sold to Livingstone Lesiure, same people who own Flambards in Cornwall. Didn't even realise the park was up for sale but hope it goes well for the new owners.

    Heide Park Colossos retracking (2019)

    Looks like Colossos at Heide Park won't be opening at all this year: Considering it closed early last year after breaking down, it must have something seriously wrong with it if the park know it won't be opening for the whole of this coming year!
