    Station fly-through: health & safety regulations

    Hey everyone, whenever I'm queueing for a GCI with a station fly-through, I'm blown away by how ****ing loud they are - which is why they are amazing, but I also noticed that this must be a severe strain for the ride-ops. I mean, my gf gets a headache from waiting in a GCI-station for more than...

    Rollercoaster Walk of Fame

    If a theme park were to build a Walk of Fame with important rollercoaster/theme park personalities, who must be included? I‘d like this to be a little namedropping-game, so following rules: - only one name per post - quote the previous post so that we end up with a list of all mentions to...

    Highest Point on Launch Coasters

    What's up lovely people. Been wondering about this: it's a common theme amongst launch coasters to have the highest point of the ride immediately after the launch. Think of Blue Fire's Horseshoe-Turn (what's what you'd call that, right?), Cheetah's weird meandering curves, Taron does that as...

    Visiting parks with non-enthusiasts

    I thought it would be funny to collect some of the experiences you make when visiting parks with non-enthusiasts. I'll start: my girlfriend finds it absolutely bizarre that coasters have names. When we visit any park, she mostly refers to coaster with their colors. For example, in Toverland...

    Toverland: "Discover your own fear"

    Yesterday I went to visit Toverland for it's largest Halloween Event yet, "Discover your own fear". It's very similar to the popular midsummer-events during the summer holidays, as the park is opened until 11 pm (with rides actually being open until the very end except for the high rope course)...

    Rollercoaster Tycoon stats for real coasters

    So this is a fun little game I thought about: I bet plenty of you guys know the 3 ratings that Rollercoaster Tycoon uses for coasters, namely "Excitement Rating", "Intensity Rating" and "Nausea Rating". How would your favourite coasters do, if you ranked them using these stats? Of course, this...

    Expectations vs. Reality

    Ok, I seriously hope to not offend anybody with this thread because I want to discuss this in good fun, but... what are the best examples of when we as Coaster Enthusiasts have been proven magically wrong? I've now read through a bunch of ride construction threads (preferably dutch ones...

    If Phantasialand got its desired expansion...

    ...what would they actually do with it? I hope, a speculation-thread like this is welcome in this forum and also I also submitted it in the correct place. If not, bear with me. One thing that I can't really wrap my head around is, how would they be able to continue with their recognizable...
