    Have you ever had a changing ride on a coaster you’ve ridden before?

    Hi guys. This hobby can be full of surprises when riding coasters; you can quite often find that when riding a brand new coaster for the first time, it delivers in ways you didn’t expect, and really surprises you. But I find that some of the most surprising rides of all can sometimes come from...

    So, it turns out there's some markers over this month at Kings Island and all the details can be found here: But, the amazing Coaster Nation has made a Wing Coaster using those marker placements and if this would be the result of the...

    Coasters that you want to like, but don't

    Hi guys. In all the years I've been riding roller coasters and visiting theme parks, I've ridden many different rides, and there have been many rides that I've hotly anticipated riding. In some cases, like with my current top 2 coasters Mako and Icon, these hotly anticipated rides blew me away...

    My Detailed Review of Talon at Dorney Park

    First off, let me say that I'm biased when it comes to this coaster. I first rode Talon nearly 15 years ago at the age of ten, and was my first looping coaster, and I have ridden it more than any coaster. I would estimate somewhere around 1500 rides. Recently I have started traveling around and...

    Cedar Fair Investing Around 140 Million In 2020

    Just seen Amusement Insiders video on the Q2 Stock Holders call. For now, it is said that Canada's Wonderland have green light on the hotel, apparently announcing something on August 14th and there's possibly one or two more coasters (other than Kings Island) in 2020...and it could be a smaller...

    Most rerideable coasters?

    Hi guys. In a coaster, many of us value rerideability; I know I certainly do! But my question to you is; what is the most rerideable coaster you've ever ridden? What is that coaster that you could literally sit on all day without feeling nauseous or exhausted, but still having fun and never...

    Your favourite roller coasters built before 1990

    Hi guys. From reading through various people's ranking lists and listening to enthusiasts talk over the years, I've noticed that there seems to be a general consensus that most people's lists only tend to contain modern coasters. The sort of coasters dominating today's top 10s mostly seem to...

    Smoothest coaster you've ever ridden?

    Hi guys. Smoothness is a factor that many of us admire in a coaster, so I'd be intrigued to know; what is the smoothest coaster you've ever ridden? For me, the smoothest coasters I've ever ridden include Mako at SeaWorld Orlando, The Swarm at Thorpe Park, Thirteen at Alton Towers, Seven Dwarfs...

    Best coaster lineup in terms of quality?

    Hi guys. I was just scrolling through my spreadsheet of all my roller coasters ranked, and I have them all rated out of 10 on an overall spectrum, so I just discovered that Google Sheets did some very clever maths and gave me my average rating out of 10 per park amongst other things. For that...

    Six Flags Great Adventure — 2020 Coaster?

    Hey everyone, from the splash pad that was removed last season to El Diablo’s sudden closure, I think it’s safe to say that Six Flags Great Adventure has something up their sleeves for 2020. I’ll make my guess at either an RMC Raptor clone, or that middleground (2 abreast, with supports designed...

    Have your tastes in coasters changed over time? If so, how?

    Hi guys. As many of you know, we all have different things we like in a coaster. Some of us crave the most intense machine in the world that makes you grey out countless times and makes you have to sit out for hours before a reride. Others crave insane ejector that would chuck you straight back...

    Coasters you would love to achieve a milestone on

    Hi guys. As we have the Milestone Coasters in Your Count thread, I thought it might be interesting to discuss coasters that we'd like to get a milestone on in the future. I'll get the ball rolling with coasters I'd particularly like to get a milestone on: Steel Vengeance - I don't think this...

    Thorpe Park 2021 Coaster Concept

    I doubt anybody will read this, but for the last month or so I've been working on a little project whenever I had the time. This is my first attempt at custom scenery from Sketchup and Photoshop into Nolimits 2. This coaster isn't what I think will be coming to the park, just what I wish would...

    Do you agree with ranking defunct roller coasters in a top coasters list?

    Hi guys. I was just reading through @Edward M's thread about wood and steel top 10s, and this inspired me to make a thread about another top 10-related conundrum; do you rank defunct roller coasters? Now, many of us won't have this conundrum, but say a coaster you really loved; let's take...

    What is your favorite Arrow Custom looper, operating or defunct?

    I've had bad experiences on many of these but Loch Ness Monster at BGW is a fairly smooth and pleasant arrow looper. What was your favorite one.

    Hi guys. Sorry if this already has a thread, but when I was reading through today's Screamscape news update, I found this interesting rumour: This sounds very exciting to me! I personally reckon that it could potentially be the first TRex Track from RMC; what do you guys think? P.S. Here's the...

    New Ride At Blackpool Pleasure Beach?

    Markings have been spotted on the old site of trauma towers at the pleasure beach which could indicate a new ride to soon come to Blackpool. Personally I would love to see a Mack Big Dipper because after seeing videos and clips of Lost Gravity at Walibi Holland, I would love to see one operating...

According to the permit, the ride will stand at 22ft tall and will...

    Surprised I didn't find a thread for this, but according to Screamscape, Carowinds is set to get a new Mack Rides Double Launch coaster in 2019! This is quite the leak, especially if it turns out to be true! Also yay a proper Mack in the US!
