    Top 10 Theme/Amusement Parks

    Wow, haven't posted here in a good bit. This post is long, too long. Tokyo Disneysea - During the summer of 2017, I spent 5 days at this park. I really got to know it: all the best rides, its best (and worst) snacks, the best spots to have a cigarette (easily in the Arabian Coast followed by a...

    CF-Lives 2020 | All Dates Announced!

    You can guarantee I'll be there for the SFGAdv and Nickelodeon Universe days! I'm fairly sure I'd be able to make it to Hersheypark as well, but since it's a weekday I'll have to verify closer to. I'd also be interested if anyone else was considering going down to Busch Gardens and Kings...

    Your biggest positive surprise?

    Helix comes to mind. I was expecting something great, don't get me wrong. But it truly blew my expectations out of the water. Everything it does is so graceful and masterful. I think it's a perfect layout, and its hillside setting is wholly unique. Kumba was another one where I didn't think much...

    Rank the Busch Gardens Tampa coasters

    Kumba - Still in my top 25. It's the epitome of old school B&M goodness. Montu - If it's not the best B&M invert, it's right near the top. SheiKra - It's really big with a great first drop & inversion combo. Cheetah Hunt - Perfectly good ride but feels like it never reaches its full potential...

    Rank the Star Wars Movies (so far).

    Here we are again, with less enthusiasm than ever sadly. Shame really. In this time, the story of a rebellious group of people taking down an oppressive government has so much potential. But they went a pretty boring route ultimately. Star Wars/A New Hope: I ultimately had to give it to the OG...

    Rank the SBF Visa Spinners

    Spin-O-Saurus - Wild Willy's: The coaster only lasted two years before leaving the unfortunately named Wild Willy's. That concludes my list of SBF Visa Spinners. Tune in next week for my ranking of E&F Kiddie Coasters.

    New Jersey | American Dream | Mall/Nickelodeon Theme Park

    Ahhh, I haven't watched the videos, so I can be surprised when I visit! Anyone know when this is supposed to open? And also is the half pipe running consistently yet? I'm done with my semester this Saturday, so I'd love to be able to visit next week and get a +5!

Old Incredible Hulk (not confident this should be here, but I did prefer it to the newer iteration) Disaster Transport (the coaster equivalent of an 80s B movie <3) Volcano Dueling Dragons Shockwave, KD Vortex, KI Cannonball Run Firehawk...

    Rank the Eurofighters (including Smiler)

    3. Dare Devil Dive - probably the best coaster of the three actually, in terms of elements, smoothness, and especially restraints. However, I think the best element of the eurofighters I've done have been theming and tight manuevers, something this one lacks. (also Mystery Mine is not an...
