    Most Overrated Coasters You've Been On?

    I'll preface this list by saying these are great rides, but not the ultra elite that many tout them as. Nemesis, feels slow, not really all that intense compared to many B&M inverts. Helix, cool layout, doesn't run great. Suffers from Mack-itis Untamed. I don't understand how this ranks...

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

    I'm going with a Raptor model themed to the Atlanta Hawks. Why a Raptor?... Fun Spot may not be considered your typical "thrill" park, but I kind of beg to differ. Look at Kissimmee, tallest skyscoaster in the world (granted, you pay extra for it), but look at Mine Blower) and their most...

    Most effective gimmick on an attraction?

    Favorite part of the shed is when you pull of a back row ride and you see in front of you everyone’s heads bopping back and forth to the catchy tunes that play through the old school radio. The shed is super cool

    Most effective gimmick on an attraction?

    One word...tunnels. Tunnels that go underground or through a wall like iron rattler may not be gimmicky per se as they took a lot of work to construct. When you take a ride that’s hauling quickly out in the open and then quickly enclose it with a tunnel it makes the experience that much more...

    How does being tired/inebriated affect your judgement of pacing?

    Yup, exactly how I was thinking scared ****less while being drawn back in what felt like some diabolical Isaac Newton physics experiment on the 300’ sky coaster at Fun Spot Kissimmee. My girl Sara wanted to do it (clearly), and luckily they had tall boys you could buy at the sky coaster ticket...

    Lightning Rod Status

    Saturday, I was one of the first guests get into the park. I quickly made my way to Lrod's queue entrance to be front of the line for when the ride opened up in about an hour. Stood there and watched flawless morning test cycles. Recognized a few other fellow enthusiasts who had joined the...

    Do you have any theme park guilty pleasures?

    Personally, my absolute guilty pleasure is doing the ‘around the world’ drinking challenge at Epcot. One of those tidbits of info that I limit telling to certain people when they hear of me going to Epcot. As for a ride, it’s the Scrambler flat ride. Never went on one till I was an adult...

    The best park in the world for each major manufacturer?

    This was a great idea. I agree with the rankings in the original post with just a couple of exceptions and additions. GCI, Personally, it's Kings Island with Mystic Timbers. But argument can be made for one of the monsters in China like Wood Coaster at Knight Valley. Gravity Group, Holiday...
