    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    "Smallest giga" is still a hell of an accolade. It's the same as saying that Jenson Button is the UK's least successful world champion this century, it's still pretty damn impressive. I think this looks superb - are we expecting full four-across trains or staggered Shambhala-type trains?

    Fear of rides

    Another thing to remember is that ultimately all those coasters exist for the sole reason of making people have fun! Whatever else they seem, they are designed for enjoyment first and foremost. Also bear in mind that at Alton, Nemesis and Oblivion in particular are designed to be frightening to...

    Track walks

    I was having a chat with a GP friend of mine who holds the "but it looks so dangerous!" opinion, and had an odd moment of brain fade. I've always thought that coaster tracks were walked and checked daily, but he pointed out that it's surely impossible to do that safely every day, especially when...

    Unknown | Flamingo Land | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster (possible Hopi Hari relocation)

    Does Intamin make any other off-the-shelf looping designs? Doesn't have to be a 10-looper to fit the rumours, I suppose.

    Unknown | Flamingo Land | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster (possible Hopi Hari relocation)

    For me, that's sort of the main problem with them - I'm not sure what they're trying to be. The name implies a kiddie's zoo, the karts are a family-friendly type thing, they're doing the resort stuff like you say and yet Kumali is still kind of their big symbol and that and (inexplicably) Hero...

    Gröna Lund | Unknown | B&M Invert

    No idea how I've managed to miss this, but I'm all in favour of a new claustrophobic B&M invert. I really like what they've done with the layout (removed final inversion notwithstanding) - the tight helix before the laser roll looks nice and intense. These rides always seem to benefit more than...

    Unknown | Flamingo Land | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster (possible Hopi Hari relocation)

    You know, now I think about it,if ever there was a park in the UK suited to an RMC Raptor, it'd be Mingo. Such a shame there's very little chance of that coming to pass, it'd fit in well for them I feel.

    Unknown | Flamingo Land | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster (possible Hopi Hari relocation)

    You'd only need a crane to build something tall. Red Force clone confirmed! Joking aside, it's about time Flamingo Land got something new, their current roster of rides isn't quite enough to make me drop the money to visit again without any reason. A 10 looper does confuse me a little though...

    Nice to be back! Life got in the way a little these last few months, but it's good to get the chance to get on here again. :)

    Biggest Disappointment...

    Dragon Khan for me. It's one of those coasters that even non-coaster people know about, and being an 8-inverting B&M, I thought "what's not to like?". Sadly, for me it just felt underwhelming - a string of inconsequencial inversions only one or two of which were particularly forceful, less good...

    Encore - Blackpool Pleasure Beach, 24/10/18

    Thanks a lot! I was really happy with the misty end-of-day one. There's just something about the proximity of rides at BPB that affords views like that.

    Europa Park to build a cable car to France

    Very disappointed this is a cable car and not a monorail, so I can't break out my extensive list of Simpsons GIFs and quotes. "Is there a chance the track could bend?" "Yes. Absolutely. It's a cable."

    Unknown ride cars on the right of valhalla.

    But it does! :P
