    "Now Showing"

    Black Panther - Wakanda Forever: Had my hopes set low for this one and didn't expect too much (considering that the majority of Marvel's phase 4 has been a pretty big flop) however I walked out pretty satisfied. Yes, it wasn't as good as the first and I think think most people would expect that...

    Best indoor roller coaster in Orlando?

    1. Cosmic Rewind - This is just a seriously fun ride and the speed near the end of the backwards launch was totally unexpected (especially for a Disney ride!) Comfortably sits as my favourite indoor coaster however I might be a bit biased considering it's also my 100th credit 😅 2. Revenge Of...

    Dollywood | Big Bear Mountain | Vekoma Family Launched Coaster | 2023

    Honestly, that looks like it's going to be one seriously fun family coaster! Seems like there could be some good moments of airtime too

    Alton Towers' Next Big Thing?

    Especially when you look at the likes of that new £18m coaster at Flamingo Land....🙃

    Thorpe Park | Project Exodus | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    It's a great day for us U.K enthusiasts! Also nice knowing many of us will soon have a new top U.K coaster (of course, there might still be some that prefer Icon ;))

    How many different number 1s have you had?

    Well, time to add two more number 1's to this list! 2022 - 5th September - Velocicoaster. After even just my first ride on this, I didn't think anything could top it.....ANYTHING. Until.... 2022 - 7th September - Iron Gwazi. Yupp, didn't last long 😂

    The most irritating theme park visit ever

    Shame to hear about this :( I've only been here once (September 2019) and thankfully bought an express pass for my full time there, longest wait was probably 15 mins. It was obvious though how bad the main queues were and you could clearly see all the queue jumping going on. The main gripe I...

    Six Flags Saudi Arabia(?) | Saudi Arabia | Theme Park

    And this will still end up opening up before Mission Ferrari.

    Coasters that remind you of RollerCoaster Tycoon

    Now that you've mentioned this, the first thing that came to my mind was the RCT3 cover....could have been a concept art for Iron Gwazi😂

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Serengeti Flyer | S&S Screamin' Swing

    Announcement 'There's a new thrill on the rise, and its name is "Serengeti Flyer"! Get ready to experience the world’s tallest and fastest ride of its kind here at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. Prepare to take flight in spring 2023.' Quite like the name myself!

    The Smiler vs Saw The Ride; which Merlin Gerstlauer do you prefer?

    I've noticed this as well. You can clearly see all the lights and even some of the walls inside now which definitely takes away from the surprise factor. I'd much prefer the whole indoor section to be pitch black and only have the lights come on at the last second (such as the spikes). It...

    Top 10(ish): 2022 Edition - page 109

    Well, finally came back from Florida which means it's time to update my rankings....some big changes and of course, some new additions (in bold) 1. Iron Gwazi - First RMC I've ever done and I seriously struggle to see how this can be beaten. Makes me incredibly excited to try out the likes of...

    "Now Showing"

    NOPE - Been a big fan of Jordan Peele's other two movies (Us & Get Out) so when I seen the trailer for this, I knew I had to see it. Without going into spoilers, I will say that this was not what I expected it to be at all. Whilst there were some moments of the film that didn't feel quite as...

    Alton Towers' Next Big Thing?

    Just gonna leave this here.... It doesn't say much but it definitely hints that the next secret weapon will be innovative and unique! Personally, I think it could be the axis... What's everyone else's thoughts?

    How would you improve each coaster in your top 10?

    1. Mako - The final turnaround section over the water could do with a splash down effect (even with water fountains synced to the train as it goes round). 2. Shambhala - The first airtime hill to either be tighter or lower down to provide better airtime (more like the first hill on Mako). 3...

    Project Exodus at Thorpe Park; Current Layout (Mack) or Alternative Layout (Likely B&M)?

    I much prefer the Mack layout. As some others had mentioned previously, a lot of the B&M Hypers already have very similar elements on their layouts and don't really do anything 'special' (I never thought I'd say this as my top 2 coasters happen to be B&M Hypers 🤣). Yes, they do have great...

    Best Marvel ride at US Disney/Universal parks?

    Had to go with the Hulk (as it's a top 5 coaster for me) however if we were talking about rides that aren't a coaster, then TAAOSM wins easily.

    Favorite Coaster Slogans

    Wasn't it "Challenge the wind"? Not that it makes it much better however 😂
