    I still haven't been to Skegness to get the giant SLC and that other big Vekoma thing, despite it not being that far away or that difficult to get to in the grand scheme of things.

    I guess Legoland Florida is another one I struggle to care about. I could have gone. For free. I've had like 2 or 3 opportunities now.

    I can't think of any major coasters that people talk highly of that I do not really care about getting, to be honest. Erm... Yeah. Can't think of any.

    Someone mentioned Efteling in this thread and to me personally it's an interesting case. I think the park looks very intriguing and it's something I'd like to visit, but it's not on the Europa Park/Phantasia- "I'm going to spend a lot of my own money to go there" level, and I think the one missing element, for me, is its own Taron. Taron is what pushed Phantasia over the bar for me (of course the rest of the park is great and I think Chiapas is a masterpiece) and if Efteling had a coaster on that level it would be an insta-go for me.

    (Europa doesn't have a Taron-level coaster but it's a massive park with a huge coaster lineup you don't see in the rest of Europe and has a nice atmosphere in general. I'm waiting until the 2021 coaster opens until I do it a third time, though.)

    Fury 325: I could be wrong, but it just seems really overhyped. It's a giga; cool, what else. I was underwhelmed with Millenium Force and Fury doesn't seem like too much of an improvement. Btw the only giga I'm really excited to ride is Intimidator 305 because of the sheer intensity of the ride.

    Taron. It looks OK I guess.

    I actually prefer Millennium over Fury. Bit surprised by that really. Was expecting to like Fury more as it seems to do everything that MF does and more: huge and steep first drop, large overbanks, great sense of speed, a bit more airtime and a bit longer, should be better right? Guess not. It's hard to explain really, I think Millennium just works more for me. I also had a slight headache (nothing too bad...I'd be fine, would ride Fury and would need a break) when I was at Carowinds so that probably affect my impressions a bit.

    It's definitely a powerful ride it sits somewhere in my Top 20, but in general I prefer the B&M hypers as well and I'm not too eager to try out Leviathan compared to other rides.

    Shambhala doesn't particulary interest me that much. Sure, it looks great, but I've heard some horror stories about PortAventura (and I literally melt in anything above 20 degrees so going to Spain would be an endurance test!).

    Then a controversial opinion is less of one particular ride, but more an entire park. There's an idea that the rides at Cedar Point are so bonkers and "out there", that I'm not sure if I'd want to go and risk having every other ride spoilt for me. Sure, they'll still be fun, but there's the idea of "oh but CP has the bigger and better version that makes this one pointless" in the back of my mind that puts me off. Not like I can afford to go to the States anyway :p

    If you think Spain is hot, then you need try going to Turkey in the middle of summer, 40+ degrees Celsius.

    Yeah, I guess you think Taron is "ok" now, seems like you loved it before this thread...

    Steel Vengeance... nah jk, I’m desperate.

    I have a strong desire to ride anything that looks even remotely decent. I’m not sure if that makes me sound enthusiastic or greedy haha.

    The best answer I can give is probably Wonder Woman at SFFT, as I didn’t really think it’s counterpart at CGA was ‘all that’ and by far my least favourite RMC creation (aka still pretty good). Those shoulder straps were nasty though. Get rid of those and my mouth will be drooling for Raptors once again.

    Spain isn't far off 40 degrees in July/August?
