    Theme Park Anagrams

    Bonus link: You n me rode all 3 of them together in 2017! 😁 Edit: Will I be adding my own super difficult anagram to the thread? No tar.

    Your longest theme park hiatus?

    Still no idea, but it's definitely not the current lockdown situation. Was lucky enough to get trips to BPB and Alton Towers in this year before everything went tits up and honestly, I reckon those 2 days out in March have kept me sane. If it wasn't for those, the last park visit would have...

    Walibi Belgium | Unknown | Intamin Mega Coaster

    Personally, I'm finding this one of the most exciting projects around at the moment. It's like... all the big 2020 projects are now permanently tainted by the 'rona. Whatever big opening plans they had are all smashed. Even when they do open, and even if they're amazing, they'll still all be...

    Rank the Giga Coasters

    I take it we're not including Red Force in this? Thought not. That only leaves me with 3 then... although statistically speaking that is 50% of the world's giga coasters I've ridden. Yes, 50%, that sounds much better than 3! Ranking them is difficult to be honest, they were all really good...

    Antinos' 2020 Thread (Silverwood and remaining sights - whole report complete!)

    Yeah, a good read, that. Proper 'excluse'. 👍 Can't wait to see one of those Axis coasters crop up somewhere... hopefully not somewhere too far away and obscure. As for the RMC factory, don't suppose you clocked any T-Rex track lying around did you? 🤐

    Silver Dollar City | Mystic River Falls | River Rapids

    Mental. Until now I'd just assumed a bit of an upgrade, a retheme, a short extension. Maybe even some new boats! I was definitely NOT expecting them to reimagine the Anderton chuffin' Boat Lift! Edit: FYI for those who don't know: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anderton_Boat_Lift

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Looks good. I like it. Ride time is too short, I think we can all agree on that, but it doesn't half motor through that layout. Such a shame it comes to such an abrupt end, so high off the ground and with so much momentum left in it. Why oh why didn't they use that really rather large plot of...

    Silver Dollar City | Mystic River Falls | River Rapids

    Err .. Helloooo! Why didn't anybody tell me about this? I mean, I saw the thread title enough times - new rapids ride - woopie doo, doesn't SDC already have a decent rapids ride? I'm talking about that giant, rotating elevator contraption and the 82ft drop! WTF? 😮 Looks fantastic! Loved this...

    Hersheypark | Chocolatetown | 2019/2020 Park Expansion

    Yeah that does look the dogs bollocks to be fair. Hersheypark has just gone up a couple of places on the to-do list. I am curious about that gigantic trim brake looking type thing that Hixee mentioned though. There's another one later on after the... err... after the sideways bit, whatever...

    What are your favourite non-coaster attractions?

    Oh you fool, of course not. It was a straw hat. Fire hazard, see? The donkey in a hat was in a saloon in the Wild Westy bit. Do keep up. 😏

    What are your favourite non-coaster attractions?

    Ha ha, that's cos my boy @Ian knows his onions! How could anyone not like Templo del Fuego? Did you not see all the fire and explosions? Was it working properly when you went? I mean, how do you set fire to water?? Skeletons on sticks springing up everywhere, loud music and.. did I mention the...

    Do you value theming or ride hardware more in a theme park?

    ^Nah man, I'd take Cedar Point over Europa Park all day long. Massive, massive coasters, s'what you want. Tons of 'em! Nothing pumps the nads like being presented with a huge array of massive, massive coasters. I mean, I do love Europa Park, it's amazing... but where would I rather be right now...

    What are your favourite non-coaster attractions?

    Pretty much anything that swings is always a winner, love swinging, me (giggedy)! Pirate ships, gyro swings, speed swings, pendulums, afterburners - all that kinda stuff. Drop Towers. They still scare me, see, which is something coasters seldom do these days, so I always try to squeeze 'em in...

    Milestone Coasters in Your Count

    200? Never realised you were so basic. For some reason I always had you down as one of those 4-figure uber-goons. My bad. ;)

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Given the entirely predictable outcome of such endeavors, surely the sensible thing to do would be to down it on the lift hill, no? 🤨

    WTF Merlin?

    To add, @BlueSonicHD , if you do get yourself a bottle of Baby Ray's and you still prefer the Maccy D's stuff, well, then your tastebuds are clearly shot to sh*t and you should probably get yourself checked for the 'Rona. 🤣

    WTF Merlin?

    In which case, pipe down newbie and go get yourself a bottle. You can thank me later. 😉

    One question: have you tried Sweet Baby Ray's?
