    How is your tolerance of roughness?

    I'd say I'm decently tolerant of roughness, up to a point... I don't take much issue with The Beast and Racer's roughness. I also enjoy Wildcat at Hersheypark, and that has a reputation of being pretty rough. The only two woodies I've ridden that I'd write off entirely due to roughness would...

    Intamin Unveils Four New Concepts

    Yeah, I mean I don't really get the outrage either, especially considering how much influence Intamin has had on what other manufacturers do throughout history. If anything, other manufacturers have borrowed and built upon Intamin's ideas/concepts moreso than the other way around. All things...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Well hey, glad I'm not the only one who digs the theming. Sure, it ain't Disney. But...neither are the ticket prices. So, fair compromise if you ask me! As for your thoughts on the ride itself. Yeah can't say I didn't see that coming. I just had this sense all throughout reading your review...

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

    Yeah I mean at this point Phantom is an Arrow about as much as Steel Vengeance is a Dinn.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Hmm. It seems I'm split into both camps at the same time on this. One one hand, I still fully agree with all the critiques, criticisms, and qualms regarding the ride's layout/stats. Yes, its still disappointing that its not actually 300 ft, not a long ride, and has mediocre elements etc. I get...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Yes, the outside is rather dull, but I am intrigued for the Quonset and custom music. Interesting fact: Orion and Mystic Timbers are the only coasters this side of the pond to feature IMAscores.

    Hersheypark | Chocolatetown | 2019/2020 Park Expansion

    Honestly, I think that above all else was the key mistake. If they'd just chose standard T-bar trains, it'd probably be much more widely praised by the GP, and universally praised by enthusiasts...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    I'll chime in on this one. I'd describe the opinions on KI to be more "polarizing" than necessarily 'low', in that yes, for as many people that consider it to be one of their least favorite parks, there are a lot who consider it one of their favorite parks. And I'd say that has to do with their...

    Rank the B&M Hyper coasters

    For me, Orion's biggest uphill battle will be overcoming the ridiculously short length. Ugh. I mean if you don't wanna go all that imaginative in terms of elements then fine, and if you wanna use the terrain to get to a 300ft drop instead of making the actual lift >300, that's ok too I guess...

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

    Coaster I like that others don't: Rougarou at Cedar Point I have heard some pretty negative things about this ride, so much to the point that I question whether I'm riding the same coaster others are. The layout is solid, and I have never had a rough or headbangy experience on it. Granted, I...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Some info on Kings Island. Reservations for passholders go live sometime tomorrow (Tuesday, 6/23). Unfortunately with these early closings, it...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    One thing to mention about the Paramount additions, is that while it is true some of them were very well themed individually speaking, a common critique is that the themes of their rides often ran incongruent to the respective areas they resided in. Examples being Tomb Raider in Ohio-Frontier...
