    Raptors are the new Aquatrax, right? In which case, A Raptor would be a perfect fit, IMHO. ;)

    The Best, The Wurst and The Gersts - A Week in Germany

    An interesting point... I'm not much of a Trekkie, I wonder if that's why I thought the cred was a bit turd.

    Sweden 2020 Trip Report - Kolmarden

    Yeah, Wildfire in the fog must have been something exceptionally special. How lucky! And even better that it cleared up throughout the day, as it's an equally great ride when you can see the enormity of the landscape it sits in. Very jealous. :)

    Roller Coaster TV Programs and News Articles!

    Two observations there - 1. Good on him for using the lingo. 2. Is that a drop tower car attached to Star Flyer? I don't recall seeing seats on the inside of one of those before... I like Tom Scott. :)
