    Europa Park | Voltron | Mack Rides Stryker Coaster | 2024

    It is indeed a joking tease as the massive antenna, the balloon ride and the seatings for the TV set are still visible. Or it's been some times that these things have been moved out.

    Most surprising coaster addition ever?

    Back to the Old Continent for me (the real one, not the Bush Gardens thing) with Expedition GeForce at Holiday Park. I'm surprised no one already mentionned it because a small family park lost in Germany opening a Mega Intamin, just one year after MF is pure balls. Do I need to say how good...

    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    I really think that the RMC writing was a poor joke to play with the fans. After all, the site on which is located Thorpe Park was once a gravel pit, owned by Ready Mixed Concrete ....

    Your most "magical" theme park moments?

    Oh, for my own, I would have two "magical" moments I could share. First (not chronologically), was to ride Nemesis for the first time in 2018. Dunno how to say this, but when I went into the parkfan/coasterfan thingy in 2002, this was one of the first coasters I read about. So, I've alaways...

    Parks you've done that were difficult to get to

    For me, there'll be two parks I struggled to reach (or to left). First one is Movieland Studios in Italy. Slept in Milan, had 80km to drive to make it to the park. Must have been a 1 hour drive. It took 3h thanks to traffic jam. Ok, the park isn't really involved in this but yet. Luckily it's...

    COTALAND | Texas | Gerstlauer Infinity Shuttle (Palindrome) & Vekoma Tilt (Circuit Breaker) & Others

    There is definitely a pause at the bottom of the lift. All Infinity coasters (and euro-fighters I think. Feell free to correct me) have a different lift system than others coasters. Instead of having a chain dog on the train clipping the chain, it's the chain that has a mettalic piece...

    So, another year done with riding creds ... with a massive total of 5! Lame. For the final 3, we were at DLP a week ago. And for the first time with our little boy ! Casey Junior : For us, boring. I mean, a rather flat powered Vekoma with no speed variations... The Disneyland RailRoad is...

    Finally, I can reply in this thread. Obvioulsy, the past 2 years hadn't permitted to visit parks for many people. I became a father last year also, so going into a theme park with a few months old baby wasn't an option. And then, my wife got minor health issues (luckily all right now) so until...

    Rides that you would like more if they had different restraints

    Oh yeah, Indy ... I have an average height, but I need to cross my legs to fit in this thing. Seriously, you got more space in a coffin. I think it's because they changed them to have 6 seats instead of 4. But the overall length of the trains stood the same. So ... works only if you have no...

    Nigloland | Krampus Expedition | Mack Water Coaster | 2021

    Yeah indeed. EGF Turn is an unofficial term. Let's call that an enthusiast's way of talk

    Nigloland | Krampus Expedition | Mack Water Coaster | 2021

    Yeah, the drop is a bit flat, isn't it ? An EGF Turn is an element first appeared on Expedition Ge Force (from where it takes the name) and basically is an s turn on the top of an airtime hill. It's quite pleasant, as you combine the feeling of the twist, and great airtimes. This is the...

    Nigloland | Krampus Expedition | Mack Water Coaster | 2021

    From what I've heard, there might be an EGF Turn at some point. I dunno how to take this, and I might be completely mistaken. But, I hope it's true. For the layout, don't have a clue. Obviously, the lift will be parallel to Alipna's Bunny hops. And then, I see a twisted drop towards the...

    Your worst spite

    Oh, I know that feeling bro ! We went there with some friends. Done Europa-Park the first day of opening last year. It was friday, was with my wife and everything was perfect. The saturday we headed for Holiday Park with the 4 other guys. It was cold and rainy. It was our first for all of 6...

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    Oh god... this is a hell of a support for the first drop ! Love the fact it is directly facing the water, the feeling of dropping into the sea will be amazing IMO !

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

    So, I've had a quick look at it and you're right. The main purpose of this patent is to ged rid off the complex mechanic of the old restrain system. To adjust the height then, it needed a lots of pieces to align, and it was complicated and noisy. By the use of a hydraulic cylinder, it corrects...

    Walt Disney Studios Park | Avengers Assemble: Flight Force | R'n'RC retheme | 2022

    Parc Astérix | Toutatis | Intamin Launch Coaster | 2023

    The environmental study was published last week. On this, it is said that the project is called Toutatis. Dunno if it will be the coaster name at the end. But, as Toutatis is a celtic god, it would make sens. After all, we already have zeus in the greek zone, Oziris in the egyptian one, so why...

    Walt Disney Studios Park | Avengers Assemble: Flight Force | R'n'RC retheme | 2022

    on french forums, the debat about the trains being replaced is very alive. Some says they have good sources saying the old ones would stay, having just the body remade to fit the new theme. IMO, I found this affirmation to be odd. Ok, RnRc aged quite well for an 18 years old Vekoma (and...

    A park with the best and worst coaster in one!

    Don't blame me for being kinda patriotic, but Parc Astérix might be a solid contender in here. One one hand, we have a very good inverted B&M (not the best I agree, but still) that is Oziris, and on the other hand,... Goudurix. My personnal worst. Last time I rode this evil piece of crap, I...
