    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    After over a year being closed, Massachusetts theme parks (so basically SFNE) will be able to open May 10th at 50% capacity. Mass. COVID Regulations, Mass. Mask Requirements – NBC Boston Sort of tempted to go sometime in May or June, but I'll be limited to weekends and have no idea what the...

    Silverwood | Stunt Pilot | RMC Raptor | 2021

    Hard to tell, as nobody has ridden this one yet. :P

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    I wouldn't expect it to add much honestly. I actually like the final roll on Banshee, probably my favorite inversion of that ride (which isn't saying much tbh). The only thing is that slow inline rolls with a lot of hangtime just seem very out of place for intense B&M inverts. For Monster...

    Craving an Average Park

    I don't seem to visit parks as much as most other people on the forums (on average usually around five or so a year, but trying to step up my game). Since I'm already used to not visiting many parks, I don't find myself craving a Funtown Splashtown USA or anything like that lol. I was able to...

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster | 2021

    I just find it so strange that SeaWorld was so on board about getting those shoulder straps on their Premiers, then comes along an Intamin with the clamshells. I'm not complaining that Pantheon has lap bars, but you'd think would've pushed for OTSRs.

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    You know if they open within the next few weeks the park will turn into a covid cesspool. I'd like to think that they're waiting a couple months to allow more folks to get vaccinated and restrictions to be raised. Then again, it is Florida, so who knows if the park cares about covid or not.

    Coaster with the strongest smell?

    I couldn't think of one for a while but then I remembered Smiler's restraints smelling pretty funky. Anyone else have similar thoughts? That was back in 2014... maybe they've hung up some car fresheners since then?

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    I have a feeling this may be a front row ride over back row? Some of the inversions don't seem as snappy like other inverts, but it looks like you could get some good whip going up into the inversions (as well as the jr immelmann). Plus, the view facing the lake as you plunge down and the drop...

    Future developments at Dollywood

    I'd say it's my favorite Euro Fighter for all the wrong reasons. If it had none of the theming, it'd easily be the worst one. It has the usual Gerstlauer transitions which ride like ass. Now the middle portion will be much better without the drop into the overbank, but that whole section will...

    Fuji-Q Announces Major New Coaster for 2022!

    Looks good enough for a family coaster. Is it the most exciting choice though? Nah. Layout seems a bit better than Wave Breaker, but I hate this concrete setting they have here. Hopefully they're more creative with better theming/interactions.

    Future developments at Dollywood

    I mean, it's not like the ride doesn't have a bigger and better and better drop as the finale. That part is actually executed pretty well.

    Sea World Australia | Leviathan | Gravity Group woodie | 2021

    Really like the look of this, especially with how compact it is. Looks like you'll have some great interaction with the main lift structure.

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster | 2021

    That looks sexy! Can't wait to (hopefully) ride this summer!

    Fantastic old coaster footage/pics

    Imagine having to ride all three only to get one cred.

    Stumbled across the first page of this thread and it looks like @furie had shared a video of this! Despite the limitations, they seem to synch up better than Twisted Colossus! :p
