    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster | 2020

    Given that there's been a few rollbacks, I wonder whether they may have tweaked the second launch to reduce the top speed and subsequently the gforce you experience after

    I think the fly to lie sections are there mostly to counter the g force, as it's more comfortable to experience g on your back. I'm pretty sure that's why the turn on air/Galactica is like that.

    If anyone's interested, here's my review of fly, and I don't think I use the word incredible once! (I do use the phrase "not incredibly fast" when referring to the launch, but I think that's the only usage!) It's got plenty of off ride footage, a synced mapped run through of the layout, and...

    Your Favourite Ever CF Lives

    I think Blackpool 2016 was my first official live and it was great, especially the karaoke drag bar after, but I also had the very random experience of meeting s bunch of CF goons in the queue line for Regina at Tobu zoo in Japan the previous year, a rather incredible coincidence - it's a small...

    Ah, I didn't realise Hollywood tour was closed... tbh on my first visit to the park I didn't even realise it existed! I was never sure if the light bleeding though was an intended effect it not, as it sort of looked like you were flying over the lights if a city at night.

    Second day at the park today and it seems a bit busier than Saturday in terms of queue lines. The rookburgh music is really growing on me though, it's still not as iconic as tarons but it's good nonetheless. Interestingly, they've also gotten rid of vr on crazy bats, but sadly they haven't...

    Just had my first ride and it's great! Quite forceful for a flyer, and lots of ground rush moments. The pre launch section is cool and really reminds me of bioshock.

    What Is Your Dream Vehicle?

    Currently I'm living the dream in a soul red Mazda MX-5 (Miata) ND. I wouldnt mind a Mustang, but this makes so much more sense in Europe.

    Rank the RMCs

    Out of those... 1) Hakugei - it really is a monster, unbelievably good and became my new #1 shortly after riding 2) Steve - great but not perfect (I actually think riding hakugei made me notice is flaws a lot more) 3) lightning rod - this may actually ben ranked lower if it wasn't for the...

    You do of course mean 4, as I can once again 100% confirm that we did not step foot in Luxembourg! (not that it matters for me now as I'm stuck in isolation anyway!)
