    Most polarising roller coasters

    Hi guys. I know this is my second thread of the day, but I would be interested to know your thoughts on which roller coasters really divide opinion.

    Hi guys. I was just having a read through Screamscape when I found this: This would be a good fit for the park, if you ask me! They could use another decent size steel coaster from the looks of things! P.S. Sorry if this already has a thread. Also, here's the Screamscape link...

    How would YOU deal with overcrowded parks?

    (idea taken from another forum) Let's say you're now the Head of Operations of any park you wish. You are confronted with a major problem: Your park is facing serious overcrowding issues. Dispatch times are constantly clocking over 3 minutes a train, lines are spilling into the midways, it's...
