That's a hell of a post @JoshC. And some interesting insight.
I spent far too much time there in my teens in the 00's armed with an £80 Tussauds pass, but rarely visit these days. I still don't think it's a bad park but Merlin have tightened the purse strings so much it just doesn't offer a...
My kinda thread.
A few days before my USA trip last year I ventured into Mountain Warehouse and stumbled across a life changing purchase - theme park shorts.
- Zip pockets on the upper thighs, no need for locker faff
- Stretch waist for when you've eaten too many donuts
- Quick dry material...
Coaster Count at start of 2020: 250 ish. Need to do a proper count soon.
- Coaster Count at end of 2020: 250ish + 12
- New coasters ridden in 2020: 12
- New parks visited in 2020: Holiday Park, Energylandia, Legendia
- Park visits (number of days) in 2020: Alton Towers x 2, Thorpe x 1...
Weirdly there's not many that spring to mind tbh. RMC coasters are so good as an overall package I guess it's easy to take the inversions for granted if that makes sense.
Steel Vengeance for example gives you such a battering it's hard to take it all in and break it down.
The one that does...
I'm gonna make a ballsy prediction: a thrill coaster for Efteling. Yes the family park with pain in the arse neighbours and strict planning restrictions.
Parc Asterix and Walibi Belgium are adding what appear to be coasters in the world class category. Plus Taron and Untamed have popped up in...
Go on then...
1. Steel Vengeance
7. Magnum XL200
Taron has dropped down a few places after some disappointing rides a couple of weeks ago. Felt a lot more tame than usual perhaps caused by the noticeable...

As for the themeing debate, it's obviously world class and on par with Klugheim. I must say though after venturing into the seemingly forgotten area of Deep In Africa; Black Mamba is the best themed...
F.L.Y - Phantasialand
Very, very impressive as an overall package. Went in completely blind having avoided all reviews and spoilers, it did not disappoint.
Vekoma have completely nailed it with this ride system and I'm sure we will be seeing a lot more of these pop up in the next few years...
Was absolutely gutted at first but it's actually really nice here tbf. Better than being at work I guess. Sky Scream is superb but feels like more of a flat ride than coaster.
Asked the bloke at the park entrance and he said he's not allowed to tell me but he was very apologetic. Can't see any...
