    Favorite Defunct Roller Coaster

    My choice also. Shame it had to go, but it was tearing itself apart.

    Sea World San Antonio | Texas Stingray | Wooden Coaster

    The trains are brand new ones, they're not reusing Gwazi's.

    Half Pipe At Särkänniemi To Be Removed.

    Oh well. No big loss here.

    Tonnerre de Zeus to be Renovated for 2021?

    Agreed with a lot of the comments so far. Zeus isn't the ride it once was because of all that's been built in the last 10 years or so, but it's still good fun in a beat-the-crap-out-of-you way. And knowing how much capital the park are investing in the launched Intamin cred, I'd be staggered if...

    Tivoli Gardens replaces two coasters

    37.3 in kilometres per hour is 23.1 mph. - so that may explain it, as there's no way the old ride got up to 37 mph. It would have ripped itself to pieces long ago if it did.

    Dreamworld Australia To Close Tower Of Terror

    Same. I'm due to go there in about 18 months, but wasn't expecting it to still be there by then given all the rumours about its demise. Superman at SFMM was awful, and this by all accounts went even less high up the tower. We'll have to make do with the collection by default.

    Last Cred Review

    Picked up a couple of new creds for me at Walibi Holland yesterday. Untamed: Was a little slow out of the box by RMC standards, but by the afternoon the trains were flying round. The back is ridiculously good. New entry in to my Top 5 European Coasters. Lost Gravity: Quite shaky at points, and...

    Who makes the best corkscrews?

    What David said. Fantasia Special is fab (well it was when it rode it 12 years ago). Here's a link to Lakeland if you're interested:

    Lakeland. Honorable mention to this one by Arrow.

    Vortex is leaving Kings Island

    That bit of the park is becoming an Arrow graveyard. I didn't much care for it. It hasn't aged well, and something better can now go in its place.

    Sea World San Antonio | Texas Stingray | Wooden Coaster

    Good point actually! Unless they've flogged the other two already. If I did a bit of digging I could probably find out either way if they hung on to the other lot after Gwazi closed for good.

    Sea World San Antonio | Texas Stingray | Wooden Coaster

    ^Sounds about right, apart from Gwazi's trains which have already been reused on Invadr.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    ^Beat me to it 😂 I'm now looking forward to the B&M Sierra Cosworth. It'll be fine. There's a few nice airtime hills, some of which will be sideways, and it'll be loads better than Firehawk.

    Whatever happened to Dorney Park's Invertigo? 😂

    Regina at Tobu Zoo Closing!

    I had a few decent rides on this, but that was getting on for 12 years ago and i imagine it had gone to **** by the time other CFers have ridden it fairly recently. The park is a bit of a dive and I don't think too many people will cry if it just becomes a zoo and the Mega-Lite and other rides...

    Dubious Claims

    Even the Oblivion claim is dubious. Togo Ultra Twister coasters had been doing vertical drops for years.

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi

    Yeah, there's only gonna be some parts of the old wood structure, the station and that's about it. Track, trains, layout, almost everything else is brand new.
