    Rank the Star Wars Movies (so far).

    I don't know where you take your rumours from, but we knew it was going to be set after RotJ for as long as we knew it was about a mandalorian. The Fett origin story was never on the table.

    Heide Park Colossos retracking (2019)

    That's just compression artifacts. You can see similar paterns over the treeline on the right and pretty much anywhere with a sharp transition between highly contrasted colours.

    New theme park for France

    Actually the park never anounced the rollerball and no one seems to know where rcdb got that info. EDIT 1PM : the Rollerball has now been announced on the park website.

    Parc Astérix Launch Coaster for 2021

    Because a crazy news/rumour doesn't come alone, a drop tower us now rumoured to be built within the same area of the Parc http://www.disneycentralplaza.com/t53982p475-france-parc-asterix-paris-1989#3442290 The words free fall appears in the middle of map of the redeveloped area.

    Parc Astérix Launch Coaster for 2021

    It would be incredible, but with Tonnerre de Zeus being retracked as we speak, I just don't see it happening. Plus, Parc Asterix needs to keep at least one non inverting thrill coaster, and that crazy new intamin ain't it.

    The best B&M Hyper coaster.

    Well, I'm sorry to desapoint, but it might very well be the only B&M (all models included) that I had no interest of riding more than once. My list therefore goes as 1 Shambhala 2 Silver Star 3 Hollywood Dream

    The best B&M Hyper coaster.

    I'm would say it might be the most accurately named of all B&M hypers, as you can literally fall asleep and have sweet dreams while riding it.

    What if Star Wars Land fails?

    Well, yes, you arr right. One persin on tje forum. But this thing is way bigger than the coaster community and you can read "true SW fans boycott solo" or similar stuff literally everywhere on the internet.

    What if Star Wars Land fails?

    Can we stop calling these boycotters "hard-core SW fans" and call them what they really are, which is a bunch of fans of the collection of fanfics they formerly called the EU and that the creators of SW never really considered part of it, plus a bunch of whiny boys who feel threatened by...

    Hersheypark | Chocolatetown | 2019/2020 Park Expansion

    Is the remainder of the seat also different from later iterations? If not, wouldn't it be possible to just replace the lap bar with the new version ? Anyway, it is kind of weird that a park would be ready to spend dozens of millions on a new expansion and hypercoaster, but isn't willing to...

    IOA | Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure | Intamin LSM Launch (Dragon Challenge replacement)

    Please, I never said you had no clue about architecture. But you still wrote something a bit misinformed, whatever are your qualifications. You probably know that many neo gothic buildings in NY predate the bulk of art deco buildings and later styles. Manhattan in the 20s was known for its...

    IOA | Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure | Intamin LSM Launch (Dragon Challenge replacement)

    Good, A piece of historical NYC right beside Hogwart and Hogsmead might not be the best for immersion. Exept if apparating is part of the ride I guess.

    IOA | Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure | Intamin LSM Launch (Dragon Challenge replacement)

    It seems that you are not really familiar with New York. Gothic revival was a huge thing there in the turn of the twentieth century. Many buildings from that era are neo gothic or gothic inspired, and if you want to create an early XXth century new york feel, gothic is the way to go.

    Toverland | Fenix | B&M Wing Coaster

    Fénix is awesome ! It reamly is B&M as their best : a medium paced ride with perfectly dosed intensity. A really enjoyable drop followed by a glorious airtime. The large height difference between the lift and the remainder of the layout ensure a consistently high speed throughout. Unfortunately...

    Hersheypark | Chocolatetown | 2019/2020 Park Expansion

    Better trains, higher lift (300-ish ft?), different pacing, emphasis on longer airtimes... The question isn't really how to compete, but how to differentiate itself from skyrush. And there is many ways to do it. Cedar Fair proved it as they have been putting two very different hyper-coasters in...

    Ranking the B&M Coaster Models

    If you are going this way, why not separate the floaty inverts from the intense inverts, and the american style 2 drops dive coasters from the ones in Europe that feature a more "standard" layout after the first drop. You can also separate the big wings from the smaller ones ... You can probably...

    We went and rode it with a group of French enthusiasts yesterday. This is great little ride that delivers much more than I was expecting !
