    Hixee tries to catch up – Misc UK 2021 (#1 - Alton Towers)

    Obviously it would be great to be heading off round the world to all the fabulous parks and coasters, but sadly that still feels some way off. Sometime towards the end of last year I started musing around the map of UK parks and realised I’ve got a few things not ticked off here. Much of this...

    DragonFly - [B&M Flyer RLRides] - DOWNLOAD NOW

    This ride does well as a mashup of Air and Flying Dinosaur. Big first elements, low terrain based second half. Awesome. The rolling pretzel is great. I fear it would be ghastly to ride in real life, mind. I reckon the combination of disorientation through the zero-g into the intense forces of...

    Theme park soundtracks that get stuck in your head

    I mean, the answer is Chiapas - shall I just lock the thread now? ;)

    New rides @ small parks

    The only thing that occurs to me as a reason would be that the soil quality means that it's hard to dig the smaller holes and instead it's easier just to dig one large hole down. For example, if the holes keep caving in because the soil doesn't hold together well, it might be a good way of...

    Wicker Man vs Megafobia

    It's not an easy question to answer. If they were both built in 2017, Megafobia's first drop alone would beat Wicker Man hands down. It's got a better layout, simply put. The problem is, you're comparing two rides with a nearly 20 year age gap. Megafobia is older and rougher, and I can...

    Nitefly has a bad battered sausage at Chessington (and more!)

    That was an entertaining read - good trip report! I mean, "probably" is a bit redundant here. Of course it's better. ;)

    Walibi Belgium | Kondaa | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    That all looks fantastic. I may have missed it, but is there any info (or concept) of what they plan to do with the area underneath Kondaa in the long run? Or are they going to keep the mud?

    Wicker Man vs Megafobia

    It's really tragic that these are the choices, isn't it? :P Haven't done Megafobia in years, but I think Wicker Man would take it. I remember not enjoying Megafobia much. Although that's not to say that Wicker Man is actually good, mind.

    Paultons Park | Farmyard Flyer | Custom Zierer Force | 2022

    Fine - you did ask: @Peet is actually right though, on a plane like that I think turbo-anything might be a bit optimistic. Yay for engineering.
