    Ferrari World Abu Dhabi | Mission Ferrari | Dynamic Attractions | 2023

    That does look really fun and I'm glad there's physical props in there too but... What was that about climate protests in the dialogue 😅

    Tivoli Friheden - new coaster to replace Cobra

    I'm not an expert in the field so I don't know for sure but if I had to guess, a deciding factor could also be shipping since for a compact coaster in a smaller park you imagine it's a bigger factor in the overall cost than with a larger investment. Intamin's tracks would (I'm assuming) be made...

    IAAPA 2022

    Oh my lord... Please, NAME NAMES. Everything from people here on this thread, from IAAPA, from Twitter is all just "something happened somewhere with someone and it's bad", NAME NAMES. If you don't want to name names, it's clearly not significant enough and we can all forget about it. If it's...

    Lost Island Theme Park | Iowa | 2022 (Kanonen relocation)

    To me it looks like they've planted some the issue of course being that foliage doesn't grow to full size in a month. But granted, looks like there's areas they could plant more in where I don't see any saplings.

    Linnanmäki | Swingi | Intamin Gyro Swing | 2024

    The Top Spin basically had to close already this year but they're already adding a different new attraction in 2023 (presumably, not confirmed 100%) in the new Vekkula (funhouse) replacement for the one they closed in 2017 to make way for Taiga. They've had to delay that one by a couple years...

    Linnanmäki | Swingi | Intamin Gyro Swing | 2024

    I hate the name. But other than that, this has me excited! If they stay faithful to the art I'll be happy too cause the victorian-esque fencing and brick backdrop look really nice as although Linnanmäki has no overarching themes, they have made an effort with a lot of recent additions and...

    Your worst spite

    I can't really say I've had a worst spite because everything I've wanted to ride has always been open, with the exception of Desert Race at Heide Park when I went there in 2019. But tbh, I had forgotten the coaster was even there until I walked past it so.

    Tibidabo | Unknown | Funtime drop tower | 2024

    Good. I've ridden Zamperla's current tallest drop tower model (Z-Max) and while the views are nice, all it really offers is motion sickness due to the weirdly smooth bouncing it does like a fast elevator. You don't feel the claimed g-forces at all.

    (Family) Suspended Coaster @ Slagharen

    I would probably not trust Premier with building anything besides a sitdown with an LSM launch. And besides, the layout looks pretty eh, just like an inverted version of a Vekoma family boomerang, whereas SFCs are actually pretty fun.

    Särkänniemi | 100M euro expansion | including new family coaster

    Can they please put some shade in while they're at it? Lmao jk, it seems like a good update. But for real the park is in serious need of some basic upkeep and shade, as the park is 90% cracking asphalt and on +30c days with the sun blazing there's nowhere to hide.

    Your Earliest Theme Park Memory

    Being a baby/toddler in the early 00's and getting scared by the demon face with glowing eyes that they for some reason have on the old kiddie carousel at my home park of Linnanmäki.

    One-off coasters you want sequels for

    Been hoping for a Lightning Run 2 ever since that first GTX got built, although I guess it's getting a sequel finally with that hot wheels coaster

    Parks you can't be arsed with

    As I've developed from a hardcore fanatic to a more chilled enthusiast: - Parks with no atmosphere; all rides on a flat field, no music, no history, no charm or well done landscaping/theming; Energylandia or most of the Six Flags and Cedar Fair chains come to mind. Good rides aren't enough if I...

    World's Tallest (Freestanding) Gyro Drop Tower and Slingshot for I-Drive Orlando

    Ngl don't really see the point of this park when there's nothing to look at in that flat mix of concrete and swampland, besides the slingshot these rides are view oriented yet there's nothing

    Most surprising addition to a theme park?

    This is much smaller scale because I don't actively really think about parks abroad and their acquisitions, but a couple years back my local park Linnanmäki got a Heavy Rotation flat ride from Technical Park, which was really weird. A decently obscure flat ride of which only a couple have been...

    Records or claims that never made sense to you?

    Six Flags referring to Raptors as "single rail coasters" despite the trains obviously riding two separate rails that are just connected to a solid box track. Nevermind calling Golden Lasso whatever the first single rail coaster when Caripro (and maybe someone else) had made actual single rail...

    Six Flags Fiesta Texas | Dr. Diabolical's Cliffhanger | B&M Dive Coaster | 2022

    That looks to be the "mini" dive coaster track that they use on the newer European 6-seat per row dive coasters, so I'm going to assume the reason for the 7-seat rows is that was the widest train that the smaller track could support and six flags wanted to squeeze that one seat per row more...

    Do you ever regret becoming a theme park enthusiast? Are there cons to this hobby?

    I don't really regret becoming an enthusiast, of course some people made fun of me when I was younger but that happens to anyone with any kind of interest. However I have made the conscious effort to become less of an enthusiast because of one big con I've noticed among enthusiasts. It seems to...
