    Paradigm-shifting coasters

    Hi guys. Sometimes, coasters are built to follow a trend. Whether that trend is records, quality, gimmicks or something else entirely, coasters are often built to capitalise upon a current trend. However, there are some coasters that aren’t necessarily built to capitalise on trends. They instead...

    Hello everyone, I was thinking it would be cool to have a thread dedicated to cool backyard coasters that you find and want to share.

    Most inconsistent coasters

    Hi guys. Once you ride a coaster enough, you start to get a feel for how consistent it is; sometimes, a coaster will hit all the right notes every time, and you'll always come off with a huge smile on your face (Or a huge frown; I guess consistency can go both ways...)! But sometimes a coaster...

    Coasters you like more than most

    Hi guys. As with the parks topic the other day, I notice that the overrated coasters thread is getting a lot of traffic, so once again, I thought I’d spread some slightly more positive vibes and shed some light on those coasters we like more than most. So, what coasters do you like more than...

    Small coasters that make the most of their size and large coasters that waste their size

    Hi guys. Size is often used as a marketing tool by parks, but many enthusiasts (myself included) believe that size isn't everything. For my money, it's not the size that matters, it's what you do with it. So my question to you today is; are there some coasters that work against that traditional...

    Coasters you really like that aren’t particularly intense

    Hi guys. Many enthusiasts often rate coasters highly based on them being intense rides; from what I can gather, many of the world’s most commonly highly rated coasters are very intense rides that put you through your paces and barely leave you with a second to breathe. But what about those...

    Rank the Superman coasters

    Hi guys. I’ve noticed that of all the superheroes, Superman seems to have the most coasters (or at least, the widest variety of coasters) themed around him, with numerous Six Flags parks, as well as numerous Warner Bros properties, having Superman themed coasters of varying types. So my question...

    Coasters that have gotten better with age?

    Hi guys. When talking about roller coasters, it’s quite easy to assume that a ride peaks when it’s brand new and goes downhill with age in terms of the quality of the ride experience. However, there do seem to have been some examples where the ride has defied logic and actually managed to get...

    How quickly do coasters tend to enter and exit the station?

    Hi guys. I’ve been playing a bit of Planet Coaster, and I noticed that in the game, every coaster’s default entry and exit speed into the station is set at 9mph. However, I thought that that seemed a little bit fast; not many coasters seem to exit and enter the station as quickly as they do in...

    Rank the Europa Park coasters

    Hi guys. Seeing as Europa Park is one of the most popular theme parks in Europe, and especially popular amongst enthusiasts, I thought it might be a fun idea to do a ranking poll of the Europa Park coasters, if you’ve been! I’ve never been, so can’t contribute, but I’d be intrigued to know; how...

    Rank the Busch Gardens Tampa coasters

    Hi guys. Busch Gardens Tampa is arguably one of the most prominent thrill parks on the East Coast of America, and most members of CF seem to have been, so I thought I'd make a ranking topic for its coasters. Even though the park itself didn't quite live up to the hype for me when I visited in...

    What are some of the best hangtime coasters?

    Hey everyone on CoasterForce! I feel like hangtime is often overlooked by coaster fans and is just as fun as positive gs or ejector airtime for me. What do you think are some great coasters that focus on or have a couple memorable hangtime moments?

    Do you count coasters you rode pre-enthusiast?

    Hi guys. Sorry if there's already a thread like this or if this thread seems a little unnecessary, but I was just wondering; I know many of you keep coaster counts (as do I), but do you guys count coasters you rode before you became an enthusiast? As for my answer to this question, I know that...

    Do you have good pictures of Phantasialand's and Europa-Parks coasters?

    Hi guys, I am planning to print acrylic glass plates with my favorite coasters and hang them on my wall. I found good pictures for most of the coasters I want to hang on my wall, but there are some I am not really happy with. So I thought maybe there are some (hobby)photographers amongst you who...

    Industry predictions for 2026

    2016 is almost over. 95% of pop culture icons are dead. Trump is President (elect). Brexit is a word we've still not come to terms with. Many things have happened. But forget all that, let's look at the Theme Park/Attractions Industry. - 2 significant projects announced for UK (SW8 &...
