    Parks you can't be arsed with

    I recently finished watching the rather fascinating Defunctland documentary on Disney's Fastpass (link), and something has been stewing in my brain since then. I [currently] can't be arsed with Disney. I'd love to do all the Disney parks - I think they do genuinely look fantastic, and are...

    A super rare trip report from Poland – August 2021 {Day 2 - Energylandia}

    A short weekend blast to Poland to ride some coasters – sure, why not? Be a decent way to add a new country cred and a few more random rides to the spreadsheet, right? Oh… it’s a +20 kinda weekend?! Well, you don’t see that every day. Some backstory first, ahead of what will mostly be an excuse...

    Glenwood Caverns Incident

    Saw this on Twitter this morning: Not many other details yet, but always a shame to hear of something like this.

    Odyssey wind speed

    I'm sure I recall seeing threads like this over the years, but can't find any that are relevant and recent enough to be helpful. Anyone have any idea what the general operating condition limits for Odyssey are? I'm going to head over in a few weeks, and know it's a fickle beast, so won't bother...

    Hixee tries to catch up – Misc UK 2021 (#2 - Lincolnshire Creds)

    Obviously it would be great to be heading off round the world to all the fabulous parks and coasters, but sadly that still feels some way off. Sometime towards the end of last year I started musing around the map of UK parks and realised I’ve got a few things not ticked off here. Much of this...

    Three Trends – Looking Forward

    Three Trends – Looking Forward Almost as a partner article to the Three Trends – Looking Back article I posted a few days ago, this time I’m going to look forwards. Thinking about the new trends we’ve seen in the past few years and which of those I’d like to see continue or grow, and which I’d...

    Three Trends – Looking Back

    Three Trends – Looking Back This was a tough article to write. Thinking back over the trends that we’ve seen in the last twenty years and what has worked and what hasn’t, it’s hard to remember everything we’ve seen. There’s things that came and went so fast they don’t spring to mind, and...

    Hixee’s guide to a Roller Coaster Construction Thread

    Hixee’s guide to a Roller Coaster Construction Thread By now, I’ve probably read through hundreds of threads, thousands of posts and an unthinkable number of pictures of mud. In reflecting back over the more notable coasters I’ve followed since starting following CF around 2005 (and signing up...

    Getting spooky in Germany and Holland – October 2019 {Day 3 - Walibi Holland}

    Okay so this is another basic bitch trip report – feels like I’m the last person on here to go ride Untamed! I’ve been to these parks before, and the weather wasn’t spectacular this weekend, so I’m afraid this won’t be quite as picture heavy as I normally manage, but had a good trip liked up...

    Sweden (and a little bit of Norway) – August 2019 {Day 4: Liseberg}

    Time for me to get a bit less basic, I suppose. Never done Kolmarden or Liseberg – the shame… Let’s get to it then. Hope the pictures make it worth a skim through. Day 1 –Grona Lund Grona Lund doesn’t open until 3pm, so it made it ideal to fly in in the morning (direct from Bristol, yay!) and...
