    Plans for RMC Raptor at Wild Water West in South Dakota for 2021

    Wow, so this is a thing! I guess I have a reason to go to South Dakota and grab the state cred!

    Indiana Beach Closes alongside other Apex parks

    I keep seeing more and more posts highlighting people who claim that they're trying to buy the park. We'll see what happens, but a reopening looks promising. There's quite a tightly knit community in that region of the country so I'm not surprised to see them rally together to find a buyer...

    Sea World San Antonio | Texas Stingray | Wooden Coaster

    Seems like the ride has been receiving great reviews thus far! I'm excited to ride it in a few months!

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster

    And this is just the legal aspects of the ride. We've already discussed the technical aspects - multiple redundant safety systems, adherence to regulations and safety standards set by both government and industry, and years and years of industry experience and lessons learned among the engineers...

    Indiana Beach Closes alongside other Apex parks

    Parks like these are typically loved for their uniqueness and quirkiness. Indiana Beach was certainly that, and it's a bummer that an already rare group of parks is just getting more exclusive. The only bright side I can see in all of this is that Indiana Beach's management and operations really...

    Skyline Park remove Sky Dragster after 3 years

    I recall when this was announced that Maurer intended to use the base design for both thrill rides and material handling applications. I wonder if the material handling applications were the main design focal point and someone basically said "it'd be easy to turn this into a thrill ride," which...

    Hersheypark | Chocolatetown | 2019/2020 Park Expansion

    The entry plaza and building look like they're coming along nicely for a spring opening. I'm starting to get curious about the rest of the expansion land though. A new entrance and coaster are nice and all, but what are they going to do with the rest of the land?

    Surveying Begins at SFMM...Possible Tidal Wave Removal?

    But for real. Where - and by where, I mean links or images, not just hearsay - is this evidence that the footers match up to Jersey Devil?

    “Warming up throughout the day” - a myth?

    It would affect functionality of the ride, yes. Every bit of the ride would be subject to thermal expansion, and if the chassis is not designed to expand at the same rate as the track, the bogeys likely wouldn't track properly on the rails and introduce side loading and ultimately extra friction...

    Remember the Gal Gadot! | SAN ANTONIO, TX PARKS | 9th - 10th May 2020

    You know I'll be there! I'm undecided as to where I'm flying into just yet and I'm hoping to use this thread to gauge a decision over the course of the next few days.

    Surveying Begins at SFMM...Possible Tidal Wave Removal?

    The best thing about that teaser is that it legitimately acknowledges that WCR was a 2020 addition.
