    Rank the SBF Visa Spinners

    Rank threads are an important life blood of Coasterforce - it's a means for members of all kinds to mindlessly bump their post count with content that nobody else will read. As important as these threads are to us, it has come to my attention that we've been missing the most important one of...

It's become quite popular in the medical industry for enabling new, quicker, and more accurate means of manufacturing an...

    Accident on Disney's Skyliner Gondola

    It appears that a log jam occurred on Disney's brand new gondola network last night: https://cruisingtheparks.com/2019/10/05/breaking-incident/ Details of the incident are still scarce but the amazing Bioreconstruct provided a good amount of knowledge to piece together the event. The jam...

    Your Defunct Roller Coaster List

    Another list thread! @Snoo went on a bit of a tangent last night while recording the Drunk Riders podcast when he discovered Coaster-Count's defunct filter. Although I've been in this hobby for 16 years, I'm a bit surprised to see that my list is so large: La Ronde - Cobra Six Flags Mexico -...

    The Forum Tips and Tricks Thread

    Every time CoasterForce upgrades to modern forum software, I tend to notice some habits (both good and bad) and also pick up some nifty tricks. I've recently observed an increasing number of members of varying seniority who aren't totally savvy with some of these quirks, so to speak. Although I...

    Stealing Kenny's Curtain | KENNYWOOD and CEDAR POINT | 22nd-23rd Jun 2019

    Alright...a bit late in getting the thread up but that's alright. The first US Live of the year was a huge success and it has caused our excitement for the Kennywood and Cedar Point Live to grow tremendously! While Steel Curtain will be the draw, we'll also have plenty of time to take on...

    Antinos' 2019 Thread (ZDT's, Galveston Pier, and Kemah)

    Another year, another trip report topic! These seemed to have been well received so I might as well continue, although this year I'll be photo hosting on Imgur instead of Facebook such that the topic won't have dead links in six months. First up this year was Carowinds! I hadn't been since one...

    Disney's Hollywood Studios | Star Wars Galaxy's Edge | 2019 Park Expansion

    We really don't have a dedicated topic for this? I guess this topic could be for both the Florida and California expansions since everything utilizes the same names... For those that live under a rock (like I usually do), the California version is expected to open sometime in Summer of this...

    WDW Magic Kingdom | Tron Lightcycle Power Run | Vekoma Motorbike Coaster

    After doing a search, it looks like there was a topic regarding Disney's announcements from almost two years ago now, but no dedicated topic to Walt Disney World's Tron coaster, so here it is. If the mods care enough to shuffle some posts around or merge some topics, go for it. We don't know a...

    Elitch Gardens Redevelopment

    It appears that the noose is tightening around this park's neck rather quickly now. Apparently the park's fate has been looking grim for quite some time now due to increased interest in downtown redevelopment. The Denver City Council recently approved preliminary plans for the project, which...

    Looking for some Holiday World images...

    I was watching a documentary or a TV special a while back that showcased Holiday World and they briefly showed a discarded iteration of Thunderbird. That particular revision had a lift with a wing over dive instead of a launch and an extra immelmann or two. Does anybody happen to know what...

    Something new for Wild Adventures in 2019

    Well here's something that's completely out of the blue! They didn't specify an announcement time, but it could be any minute now. There haven't been any rumors surrounding the park at all, so what do you think this will be?

    Ghost Town in the Sky to Reopen...

    ...as Ghost Town Adventure Park! For those unfamiliar with Ghost Town in North Carolina's Maggie Valley, it's a hilltop park that has unfortunately had a history of running into repeated financial trouble. The park has shuttered three times in the last 15 years: https://rcdb.com/4585.htm...

    IOA: 8th Voyage of Sinbad to Permanently Close

    It appears as if this news has quietly slipped under the radar. The 8th Voyage of Sinbad is set to permanently close on September 15th. It looks as if the show is another of the park's original attractions that is getting removed for future additions. Here's an article with more information...

    What parks do you have zero desire to revisit?

    It's likely a safe bet that there are many parks out there where virtually every enthusiast wants to revisit. I'd imagine the mega parks, like Cedar Point, Six Flags Magic Mountain or Great Adventure, Phantasialand, or Nagashima Spaland are at the tops of everybody's lists. Maybe some people...
