    Rides that you would like more if they had different restraints

    Count me in on the Intamin accelerator OTSRs being poo-poo. Once they added that extra soft padding onto Kanonen, it only made the seat feel more claustrophobic and the ride even more unbearable to your neck whenever the train hit a sharp turn. Big part of the reason why that thing sucked, and...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    I feel like ending your call to action by calling your opponent 'mentally insane' may not paint you and your movement in the best light in this particular instance, but what do I know...

    YAY Merlin!

    It's common at Liseberg during low crowds to run the Screamin' Swing with only one arm as well. They're designed to be able to run individually IIRC.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

The park will add a new themed area next to the log flume and Fluch von Novgorod named "Peterhof von Novgorod," and it will feature a small drop tower named "Turm von Peterhof" and an open-air merry-go-round (similar to...

    Rides that you would like more if they had different restraints

    Kill the SLC horsecollars with fire. What madman designed those things to be so unnecessarily bulky and be such an unbearable contortion for anyone with broad shoulders? That's not even getting into the damage they do to your ears at even the tiniest rattle. MP X-press and Vampire would've both...

    They’ll be closed today and tomorrow, presumably to allow the investigation to proceed, so anyone planning to head out there should consider rescheduling.

    There's more than enough room over by Superman for something like this. The ride platform itself takes up a very small footprint.

    Spain & theme parks; what’s the problem?

    Didn't Parque Warner's attendance spike after they added the water park? Apparently, they nearly doubled their numbers from 2013 to 2019. Maybe becoming a full-fledged resort is what the park's missing.

    Shanghai Disneyland building a “high-speed roller coaster”?

    The Zootopia building went vertical a while ago and there’s been no sign of any coaster track, so no, it’s not a coaster. It’s still possible an EE clone could come as a phase two expansion to the Zootopia area, as the original plans where it showed up had a large show-building to the left that...

    Most surprising addition to a theme park?

    Plopsaland also has a problem with slow ops on anything other than RTH from my experience. Anubis and Heidi should not have been stacking as badly as they did given the small trains on both.

    What is your preferred loose article storage solution at theme parks?

    I go with a backpack since I usually have a lot of things with me: several water/cola bottles (especially if it's a hot day), bread rolls for a quick bite, portable phone battery, and space to put my wallet and phone so I don't have to faff around with placing them in station bins once boarding...
