    Which Coasters Have You Had a Zen Ride On?

    Only time I recall this happening (save for coasters with tiny cars like your average Wild Mouse or Gerstlauer Bobsled) was when I was the only person in the boat on Atlantica Supersplash. It was 10 in the morning in early June and the back end of Europa-Park was virtually dead save for a few...

    California's Great America - Park sold, eventually closing

    The companies that lease aircraft have a financial incentive for the airline company to continue operating their aircraft, though. If the airline can't pay what they owe them, they'll just lend the plane over to someone else. The company CF has sold Great America to is in the business of...

    New coaster coming to PortAventura?

    Are we sure those are coaster supports? Look more like steel beams for building construction to me.

    Last Cred Review

    150. Karibik-Coaster (Travelling SBF Visa Spinning Coaster) My 150th credit, yay…? Wasn’t really planning on going on this one at first but I was spending the night in Lubeck after a day at Hansa-Park and I had three euros to waste so I figured why not claim an extra credit before moving on to...

    Tibidabo | Unknown | Funtime drop tower | 2024

    See, that honestly perplexes me since both Highlander and the one at Nigloland have their height minimums set at 1.4m. Tibidabo must’ve managed to wrestle a lower requirement out of Funtime in order for them to secure the contract.

    New coaster coming to PortAventura?

    1. Bro, chill. There’s no need to get up in arms. 2. Didn’t expect to be accused of being a corporate rat today, but alright. If I was a corporate rat, would I say that PA is badly run and Ferrari Land is so garbage as a separate gate that it makes Walt Disney Studios look like Tokyo DisneySea...

    New coaster coming to PortAventura?

    Well… Europe isn’t exactly short on parks other than PA, lol. It could’ve been bought for some obscure place in the Balkans for all we know.

    New coaster coming to PortAventura?

    Pretty sure they said there was only one other installation of the coaster model in the entire world, so a Free Spin wouldn’t add up given how many there already are in the U.S and Asia. My money’s still on the Hot Racer.

    New coaster coming to PortAventura?

    The ”Coming 2023” sign isn’t there, just the wooden fence is. Not sure why they removed it — Either the sign itself was a photoshop or the 2023 announcement was made prematurely. Guess we’ll find out soon.

    Flamingo Land | Sik | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2022

    If nothing else, it’s at least good to see the coaster finally find a home after ten long years, even if the name and color choices are all rather bleh. That logo is its own level of garbagio though.

    WTF Merlin?

    Heide-Park seems to be a huge mess right now. Multiple rides are closed constantly (Big Loop and Scream have been down for weeks), and given that the ride line-up has shrunk in the past few years (the Mayan flat area just looks sad now) it’s concerning to see that they’re apparently struggling...
