Happy 20th Birthday to us!

Coasterforce Towers, Worldwide

February 5th, 2021 – On this day in 2001, CoasterForce first appeared online.  Many coaster enthusiasts – or ‘goons’ as we lovingly call ourselves – have interacted with CoasterForce, either by posting on our forums, watching a video, making new friends (and even meeting their future spouse!) at CF Live, used our comprehensive guide pages, or perhaps read one or two of our tweets. We’re quite proud and very grateful that during the last two decades,  CoasterForce has, in some shape or form, been part of your roller coaster life.

If you’ve been riding with us for the whole 20 years, only for 20 minutes, or perhaps somewhere in between, we would like to say a huge thank you for your support. In this time we’ve seen parks come and go, some fads burst on the scene and some whimper away, all the while many, many incredible roller coasters have opened. With hundreds of online outlets for a goon to get their theme park fix (some of which may have been inspired or influenced by CF!), we’d like to thank you for choosing us. Here’s to the next 20 years!

For the next few weeks, we’re going to celebrate our big birthday milestone with a look back over the past 20 years and giving away loads of theme park tat! You’ll need to be following us on Facebook and Twitter, and be a member of our Forums, to see everything up for grabs.
