    Quietest you've ever seen a theme park?

    Probably Michigan's Adventure last year. It was so empty and quiet it was kind of sad, granted we were at the park pretty late. I was also literally the only person on Thunderhawk (my second ride on it) and it had a breakdown while I was sitting at the brake run.

    Favourite coaster in Florida?

    Kumba. I haven't been on Hulk or Everest and I only went on Montu once.

    What are some of the best hangtime coasters?

    Monster at Adventureland is probably one of the best coasters for hangtime. The loop actually provides some of the best out-of-your-seat moments on any coaster.

    What country have you ridden the most coasters in?

    213/218 in USA, 100% of my count (I haven't even left the USA ever yet)

    Unsure creds

    The only one I really am not sure about is Barnstormer at Magic Kingdom. I think I remember riding it, but I don't even remember. There's not even photo evidence of me on it, same with Shamu Express and Journey to Atlantis at SeaWorld Orlando, but I remember writing a diary thing on my trip back...

    What was your first coaster to feature a launch?

    I believe it was Joker's Jinx at Six Flags America, but I'm not 100% sure.

    What are your favorite “clone/basic” coaster models?

    Batman: The Ride clones That's about it, really. The only other model I can think of is Boomerangs but only if they have the newer cars/restraints.

    Your favourite old-style amusement park

    Bay Beach Amusement Park. For one it's the closest park to me so I go at least once a year and for two the individual ride tickets are super cheap, 1 ticket is 25 cents, 2 is 50, and so on and so forth.

    Are regular investments into large-scale coasters going to become a thing of the past?

    Look at my home park, Six Flags Great America in the past decade. We have gotten 4 new coasters (3 of which are unique to SFGAm), a waterpark expansion, a Justice League dark ride, and a large-scale Super Loop. The only years that were really dead during that timeframe were 2013 and 2015 (we got...

    Traveller's topic: Country's favorite

    I've only been to one country (the country I was born in), the United States so I'm going to do it by states. Carowinds is a special case since the address is in North Carolina, but some of the coasters are entirely located in South Carolina geographically, so I'm going to include the SC...

    Six Flags Zhejiang | Haiyan | Theme Park

    Huh, a Mack Hyper. The stats line up pretty closely to Flash at Lewa Adventure, I wonder if this will lead to more Macks being built over here in the US.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    I think that V2 will be going back to its original color scheme. If they don't re-paint the supports, then it will be re-branded as The Flash.

    What was your first coaster to feature airtime?

    Zippin Pippin at Bay Beach Amusement Park. When I first rode it back in 2011 (the year it opened) the ejector hill near the end scared the crap out of me since this was before my enthusiast days and I genuinely thought I was going to fall out.
