    SeaWorld Orlando | Penguin Trek | B&M Family Launch Coaster | 2024

    SWO also struggles with staffing with Disney and Universal nearby. Having multiple rides from the same manufacturer makes cross-training and workforce management from both a maintenance and operations perspective so much less of a headache.

    Can someone explain my VelociCoaster experience?

    I did try to return it to the position it was in at dispatch, but it would pop back up to the new position. Only towards the end of the ride did I get it to lock down again. I was worried in the moment for sure, but I am not for a moment suggesting something was inherently unsafe, just...

    Can someone explain my VelociCoaster experience?

    Hey all, I had an experience on VelociCoaster a few days ago that legitimately made me fear for my safety for the first time ever in my 10+ years of being an enthusiast, but I was wondering if anyone perhaps with more technical knowledge of the new Intamin LSM trains could put my mind at ease...

    Marineland of Canada (may) be closing/sold

    No way the export permits would be approved to the US, plus there's no space. Whoever buys this park is stuck with these animals for a long time.

    Legoland Deutschland | Maximus: Flight of the Guardian| B&M Wing Coaster | 2023

    I’m probably going to be proven crazy but I still think the seats could rotate like axis. Makes the track inversion not an inversion, plus slow speed sideways stall helix with traditional non rotating seats on the chessington ride sounds very uncomfortable.

    CWOA | Mandrill Mayhem (World of Jumanji) | B&M Wing Coaster | 2023

    What if each side of the track (each wing, per say) is a separate train and can operate independently of the other side?

    Fun Spot Atlanta | ArieForce One | RMC IBox Steel Coaster | 2023

    Only in the US can you still be pouring foundations for a ride in late June when it’s supposed to open that season haha

    Your worst spite

    VelociCoaster down all day both days that I’ve visited (just to ride it) since it’s been open. Really skeptical to pay over $100 for a third time to try to ride it.

    Icon Park - Drop Tower Accident 24/03/2022

    Incredible negligence and pure insanity. It was only a matter of time before someone died from the moment this modification was made.

    Seating position. Same as having Kumba and Montu in the same park.

    SeaWorld Orlando | Pipeline: The Surf Coaster | B&M Surf Coaster | 2023

    Back in 2020 this was on track to open in December. They might have pushed that to Spring this time round, we’ll see

    Icon Park - Drop Tower Accident 24/03/2022

    Since these towers use Gerstlauer restraints similar/identical to those on some Gerstlauer coasters, should we not now be looking with caution at those coasters just as Dollywood has with their tower?
