    Best and Worst Coaster Names?

    So something I found out a couple of days ago. Takabisha at Fuji Q is 高飛車 which translates to domineering. But the name is a pun. 高 = high 飛 = flying 車 = car

    All filler - no killer. Well rounded parks with poor headline attractions.

    IDK, I visted BGT for the first time before they even had Cheetah Hunt and thought it was an awesome park. 3 B&Ms, one of them being the legendary Kumba. Nice Schwarzkopf and some other rides. I've always felt BGT was an elite tier park over the years. After all, the topic title is "Well...

    Because rolls dont pull many positive Gs. If it had loops or large drops or tight turns it might pull 3 or 4g, but clearly this wont.

    I mean I was under the impression the ride was done and it was a case of getting the mechanical systems to work properly. But now it seems like The whole attraction must be on a monthly payment plan or something.

    Tivoli Friheden - new coaster to replace Cobra

    The article literally says: Regardless of which roller coaster the choice falls on, it won't be ready for the 2023 season and only maybe until the following year.

    Tivoli Friheden - new coaster to replace Cobra

    That said, you have to wonder why a park would get a layout like that. Launch aside, to me it looks like the Intamin version of this:

    Most Overrated Coasters You've Been On?

    I was disappointed they didn't have the EDM playing in the morning, they only turned it on later in the afternoon.

    Could like-for-like retracks of coasters ever eclipse coaster removals?

    Do they really think like that though? They get paid. Extending that line of thinking, would Vekoma say "No don't order Roller Skaters from us because we'd prefer to build and market tilt coasters"?

    Most Overrated Coasters You've Been On?

    It's not a coaster, but can I nominate every ghost train, particularly the ones everyone speaks about like Bla Taget at Grona Lund or the one at Knoebels. Every ghost train feels the same, are non memorable, I've literally never ridden one and wanted to get back in line to appreciate it more.

    What's your thoughts on Valravn?

    I think it gets way more hate than it deserves, I gladly rode multiple times. But still, it's not as good as Baron 1898.
