    CoasterForce's favourite UK roller coasters

    1. Wicker Man (whole package: great theming, atmospheric, fun ride) 2. Stealth (fast thing goes whoosh) 3. Oblivion (love a good drop) 4. Nemesis (despite my comments in the Least Common opinion thread I still enjoy it a lot) 5. Nemesis Inferno (I think it's pretty close to Nemesis) 6...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I think I probably have a similar tolerance of forces to you Matt. I enjoy airtime and negatives more than I enjoy positive forces and I think sustained forces or very intense forces uncomfortable, which is likely why I prefer Wicker Man to Nemesis and struggle with Manta. Back to unpopular /...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I actually agree with you (or at least see where you're coming from on a few of these. - Whilst I change my mind on the matter often, I think Nemesis is great but find Inferno to be very enjoyable and highly underrated as an Invert. I am undecided sometimes as to which I prefer as a track...

    Do you find The Smiler at Alton Towers rough?

    I found it to be a bit nauseating on my last ride, but not 'rough'.

    Is Phantom’s Revenge at Kennywood classed as an Arrow or a Morgan?

    Both. I don't see why it can't be both.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    The human body replaces cells all the time, in fact it replaces virtually all cells every 7 to 10 years. By that logic, you are not the same person you were 10 years ago! Despite this, we all consider ourselves the same person at 10 years old and 50 years old. That is kind of how I feel about...

    Coasters you like that others don’t and a coaster you don’t like that others do

    I'm glad you said that as I've never enjoyed it either! I know a lot of people rave about it, but I found the coaster portion deeply uncomfortable on EuroMir.

    Coasters you like that others don’t and a coaster you don’t like that others do

    I'm going to echo what you said above about Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit. I found it quite scary and thrilling. Despite my better judgement I really enjoy The Walking Dead The Ride at Thorpe Park. On paper it is terrible: a scary theme based on an IP with waning popularity added to a family...

    "Sleeping Giant" Theme Park

    There do seem to be quite a lot of 'stagnant' parks in Europe at the moment which could be great but have seen limited investment recently, or have been actively removing rides. Add Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures to that lost as well, as both had a stellar trajectory in the...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    In what way is liking Loggers Leap an unpopular opinion?!

    Odd transfer tracks

    Baron 1898 also has its maintenance bay beside the ride station rather than behind it. I believe the transfer track occurs in the pre-lift section.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    This is the same government who believes giving key worker a round of applause will make up for years of cuts, so frankly who knows. It's encouraging to see parks open elsewhere, but it really doesn't feel like it's time to do the same in the UK yet since it's notable worse here.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    It looked like they were even digging out portions of railings at Villa Volta so it's definitely a little more than just a short term plan, maybe even long term perhaps?
