    Europa Park | Voltron | Mack Rides Stryker Coaster | 2024

    Pfft, it's flying over that airtime hill and the inversion after it is also taken at a good pace. Not every element has to be balls to the wall quick.

    Rank the GCIs

    Harsh, was a good cred but we were dying in the heat. Shame we couldn't physically manage a re-ride. Hopefully Thunderhead is as good as the first time I rode it, that's a top tier GCI, so should get up high in your list.

    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    So just lift hill, first drop and the turnaround to be linked now then? If they get it all in within the next couple of weeks then maybe a March opening but looking more like April now.

    What new-to-you coasters do you feel are your most likely top 10(ish) contenders in 2024?

    You forgot Skyrush. If you like it then you will LOVE it. But if you're a baby then it will sit somewhere in your 30-50. Realistically I can see Ride to Happiness and Arieforce 1 having a genuine chance of getting in my top 10. There's quite a few other notable rides but I have high hopes for...

    Alton Towers | Nemesis Reborn | B&M Retrack | 2024

    A Hagrid's based on Raccoon City during that part of the franchise would be absolutely epic. Lickers and Tyrant in the first section with an exploding effect into a reverse launch. G versions and dogs in the Police Station in the second section Nemesis flame thrower finale

    Will Hyperia be better than Nemesis?

    I generally avoid any youtuber/social media's opinions on parks, they are never objective. Usually the good people on here are more honest about their reviews, taking time to ride it in multiple seats and don't just say how they feel 3 seconds after getting off. It's a shame about Icon, I...

    Will Hyperia be better than Nemesis?

    New ride syndrome combined with the social media hype and arse licking aimed at Thorpe will be unbearable in the first couple of weeks. I'll be avoiding reviews for a while I think. Nemesis has the perfect flow to it, I think Hyperia will be more of a Goliath(SFGAm) vibe where the elements are...

    CoasterForce's Favourite Roller Coasters - 2023 Edition!

    I do think that only including the top 10 knocks a lot of really good rides out nowadays. Anyone with a cred count in the multi-hundreds probably has a bunch of excellent coasters in their 11-20, and from what I can see, this is where most of the 2023 coasters are getting ranked. It's a shame...

    Top 10(ish): 2024 Edition - page 124

    Bold are new for this year. The Intamins all delivered, varying but similar experiences, all of them have stand out moments, and all of them have **** moments. I think Taiga was probably my fave of the three as the stall was dreamy and had some excellent airtime moments. The only downside is the...

    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    I genuinely hated the FLY thread once the wall discussion took over. I just ignored it after that, not only because the discussion was a total waste of time, but wanted to be spoiler free.

    Hansa Park vs Heide Park

    I think you'll be happy with whichever one you plump for, they both tick the boxes for good rides and atmosphere, but personally I found Hansa to be the much better of the two parks.

    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    Lack of airtime moments isn't an issue if those moments are excellent. Skyrush only has 6(?) moments but each one is exceptional. We won't know until it's ridden. Not getting on the hype train just yet. Like others, I still think we've been shafted for length, the apparent trims in the...
