    Your Least Common Opinion?

    Just to chime in, I also think air /galactica is force less and slow. Don't have a problem with the restraints so much, but the ride itself isn't large or fast enough. Lost gravity has fast and slow cars, and when I rode it last in the spitting rain it ran very fast to the point the airtime was...

    Portaventura visit and review , September 2019

    I have recently been to visit portaventura for the first time, I spent 3 days total, the last day I split between ferrari land and the main park. the park was open till 12 pm on all the days I spent. I want to give a rundown of my opinion of the rides, and the park In general. This will seem...

    What is your favourite drop tower?

    1: mystery Castle at phantasialand, great experience, forceful and decent ride length, feels larger than it is because its enclosed 2: tower of terror at Disney Paris. Couldn't stop laughing the whole ride through, and having a seat belt as a restraint is great. Theming and pre show is spot...

    Your favourite roller coasters built before 1990

    Wild mouse at Bpb was great, really felt like It hadn't been serviced for 50 years and was thrilling because of how rough and ready it was.

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I do think 10 am till 4 pm are ridiculous hours for a park to run in peak season, we struggled to do the lot in one day, although we had all the credits anyway from a previous trip, I always try to ride everything at least once when I visit a park. I like to go to places that have rides nowhere...

    Opinions on the best European coaster, and why

    I'm well aware of the tree line limitations, they should plant some taller trees 😉. No In all seriousness I can see the engineering that goes into the rides, I just wish they'd blasted an extra 50 feet down in places to give themselves more room, especially with air (galactica) it seriously...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    Another unpopular opinion, Blackpool Pleasure beach is the best park in the UK. The history of the park and the historic rides such as the big dipper, grand national, steeplechase, gallopers and flying machines, and the amount of unique rides compared any other park in the UK just does it for...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    Alton towers is overrated massively, the management don't care about the park or maintainence and it shows. Nemesis isn't that great. It's a 25 year old coaster that shows its age, rattles and shakes terribly as the train passes through the course, a painful experience no matter where I sat on...

    Opinions on the best European coaster, and why

    My bad on the triple posting haha, won't be doing it again 😂 . Icon is a good ride I think, but what does it actually want to be? Its not thrilling enough or tall enough to be anything more than a family launch coaster, however it does that very well. I wish bpb had invested in a ride more like...

    Opinions on the best European coaster, and why

    Wildfire does look amazing, as for shambala I haven't ridden myself, although a friend went last year and didn't really rate shambala, he said the layout was somewhat boring, and then proceeded to say he preferred silver star at europa park, we're going to portaventura in August so I'll find out...

    Opinions on the best European coaster, and why

    I really don't want to start a war but I have never seen the appeal of nemesis 😂 in 92 it was probably groundbreaking, but I find it very rough to ride and really not that fun. They tried to pack too much into too small a footprint, just like the smiler which I feel is like sitting in a washing...

    Opinions on the best European coaster, and why

    I did rate taron very highly when I rode in 2016, managed 3 or 4 runs back to back. I've yet to ride an RMC, with untamed being the closest to me. I do a holland /Germany trip every year so will have sampled untamed in a few months. Expedition ge force is a bucket list coaster, ever since...

    Opinions on the best European coaster, and why

    I'm curious to find out in the community what the general opinion /consensus of the best coaster in Europe is, and obviously everyone will have an opinion to share too.

    Europa Park to add a new major Mack coaster within the next 5 years

    Having rode lost gravity it packs a punch for such a small footprint, nice airtime and quite forceful, although I'd much rather europa park got a mack hyper, but I can't see it happening.
