    Eatrenalin - Europa Park Experience Restaurant - 2021

    Never has an announcement left me so confused and with so many questions. But yeah, if this works it'll be amazing.

    Movie Park Germany | Unknown | Intamin Multi Dimension Coaster | 2021

    I really like the visual this will create of having the track and train go over the (presumed) entrance feature for the ride. It's just one of random things I love seeing in rides!

    Walibi Belgium | Kondaa | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    I think it's easier to forget about Hyperion because it's in a park that are building 100 coasters* every year and people lose track.. ;) *possible understatement, I've lost track myself

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    It's not just cutting the supports back, they have also removed a couple too (can't remember if that's been mentioned here already). It's definitely a weird situation, and I can't think of any situations off the top of my head where rides have just had supports removed in such a fashion...

    Rollercoasters and Robot Wars

    ha, love this thread!! Before answering the question, I'm going to come in with a bit of a brag. The dad of a friend of mine from primary school had a robot on Robot Wars - Dantomkia. Nice simple robot with a flipper. Famously was the first (and maybe only?) robot to flip the legendary Chaos 2...

    Walibi Belgium | Kondaa | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    I expect the non-inverting cobra roll (can we call it a hognose roll?) to be the one respite moment of the ride. The first couple of elements have strong airtime, in theory, and the element happens just before the half way mark of the ride. Having it as a calmer moment (whilst still hopefully...

    Paultons Park | Tornado Springs | New Area | 2021

    I like it. Looks good, and the right level of cheesey. If anyone is looking for a drinking game during lockdown though, I suggest taking a shot every time "Storm Chaser(s)" is said in that video.

    The TV we watch...

    I'm not a Marvel person at all. In fact, I'm not a big superhero person at all. But I watched the episodes that are out because my big-Marvel-fan flatmates were watching it (so basically, 'because it was on'). They were confused and intrigued by it. I was plain ol' bamboozled. Had some nice...

    Plopsaland de Panne | The Ride to Happiness | Mack Xtreme Spinning Coaster | 2021

    The more I've thought about this, and more I remain...conflicted about it, I guess. Just thinking about the attraction / area in its own right, I love it. The ride looks great (even if I am a bit unsure about how I'll feel with spinning and inversions). The theme is unique, different and fun...

    Plopsaland de Panne | The Ride to Happiness | Mack Xtreme Spinning Coaster | 2021

    So we have a name and theme. Who's looking forward to... The Ride to Happiness, presented by Tomorrowland...? Just when I thought this ride couldn't be any less Plopsaland... EDIT: Some concept art... Source...

    If you could put any roller coaster in your home park, what would it be and where would it go?

    Home park is Thorpe. One thing I've wanted them to have for ages now is a pair of duelling / racing junior Vekoma boomerangs, somewhere by Stealth. Maybe where the Teacups / Dodgems are. Theme it around a race of course, do a classic Merlin 'central major theming piece', and then even with a...

    Vekoma New-Gen Coasters Discussion Thread

    I don't know the difference between these two things anymore ? Are we sure it's not a zero-g twisty wisty? Or a step up half flip roll? Why not a Dutch twist? I miss the days when inversions were all easy to name and recognise; simpler times...
