    CoasterForce's Favourite Roller Coasters - 2021 Edition

    Another year, another comparison of our top 10 roller coasters! I believe the CF Team speaks for all when we say this year was both better-but-not-quite-back-to-pre-Covid-status. While response rates to this year's poll were lower, we actually saw a wider variety of coasters across rankings! CF...

    Belgium 2021; which of the new coasters do you prefer?

    Hi guys. This year, Belgian parks opened 2 major new roller coasters, both of which were hotly anticipated; Kondaa at Walibi Belgium, an Intamin mega coaster, and Ride to Happiness at Plopsaland de Panne, a Mack XTREME Spinning Coaster. Both of these had huge hype surrounding them, and a fair...

    Alton Towers 12th/13th September 2021

    12th September 2021 (Day 1) Hi guys. Today, my parents and I went to Alton Towers for Oktoberfest. We’re actually spending 2 days on park this trip, so today’s report is the first of two! We actually didn’t arrive at the resort until just after 12pm today, so as the opening time crowds had...

    Thorpe Park 7th September 2021

    Hi guys. Today, I went to Thorpe Park for a bit of midweek fun; my uni course doesn’t start until 20th September, so I thought I might as well make the most of it! I say “I” because today’s visit was actually my first ever solo theme park visit; my mum & dad dropped me off at Thorpe and went to...

    Hi guys. Today, my parents and I had the first day of a 2-day theme park trip to the South of England. This trip is actually my parents’ 18th birthday present to me (my birthday is on Saturday); we were originally planning to go to Florida to ride things such as VelociCoaster and Iron Gwazi, but...

    Thorpe Park 11th July 2021

    Hi guys. We went to Thorpe Park today, and we had a nice day! We left home at about 7:15, and got to Thorpe itself at around 9:20, meaning we were in good time to get into the park for opening time: One thing I had forgotten before our visit was that Thorpe are currently running an event...

    Alton Towers 28th June 2021

    Hi guys. We went to Alton Towers today for a bit of midweek fun, and let me tell you, it was certainly fun! We left home at just before 7am, so we were at the park by about 9:40am, and inside by just after 10am: For our first ride, we actually started differently to our last two trips, and went...

    Conny-Land | Crazy Professor | RES Roller Ball

    Hi guys. It would appear that Conny-Land in Switzerland, known as home of Cobra, the PAX shuttle coaster, has purchased a 19m RES Roller Ball for 2021: https://rcdb.com/19391.htm Should be a great fit for the park!

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach - April 20th 2021

    As you can imagine, like most people here on this site I was itching to get back to the parks. Despite my initial excitement after seeing pictures of the heaving crowds of last weekend, I became pessimistic about my chances of having a good day back to my home park. I got to the park and I was...

    Alton Towers 16th April 2021

    Hi guys. After a theme park hiatus of many months due to the various lockdowns and restrictions, my parents and I were finally able to get back to a theme park today! And it was only natural that we would go to the UK theme park that we always start with; our favourite UK park, Alton Towers! We...

    Silver Dollar City 2022??

    As said in this Screamscape article, "a large clearing has been made somewhere behind the new Mystic River Falls and Fireman’s Landing areas that can be seen from the road as you pass the park back there. According to one post there is an area where they appear to be digging down deep for...

    Do you think GCSE and A Level exams should go ahead in 2021?

    Hi guys. Due to lockdown 1.0, exams were scrapped for the first time in modern history in summer 2020, in a move that would previously have been thought utterly unprecedented. Instead, GCSE and A Level students were awarded teacher-assessed grades. As we enter 2021, another exam season is soon...

    Six Flags America 2021

    Now this isn't confirmed however one of my Subscribers on YouTube has said that electrical work has been spotted at the site in between Joker's Jink and Whistlestop Park. Obviously isn't the best source (I know) but has anyone else heard something from this?

    Thorpe Park 2021 Coaster Concept

    I doubt anybody will read this, but for the last month or so I've been working on a little project whenever I had the time. This is my first attempt at custom scenery from Sketchup and Photoshop into Nolimits 2. This coaster isn't what I think will be coming to the park, just what I wish would...

    I thought I'd start it as a separate thread, but BGW Fans report that Busch Gardens Williamsburg has filed a height waiver for a 355ft structure in the Oktoberfest area. Thoughts?? https://bgwfans.com/2019/bgw-project-2021/
