    Your Credit Approach at a New Park

    I'd say I'm between a B and C, I usually try to get on most thrill and family coasters, however I will never bother with a kiddie coaster or smaller family coasters unless someone else in my party wants to ride it. Also I will ride smaller coasters if I'm close to a milestone and I want to hit a...

    RES Roller Ball for Wiener Prater in 2020?

    Might actually go there now, while it probably won’t live up to Wilde Hilde, it could maybe be on the level of Marsupilamis. I hope it’s the 19m variant as they seem much more intense than the larger 28m variant, however RES has never failed to disappoint so I’m sure it’ll be a fantastic addition.

    Top 10(ish): 2019 Edition - page 80

    So I went on a trip to the US this past summer, riding many of my bucket list coasters so I thought I may as well update my rankings. (New additions are in Bold) 1. Lightning Rod- This coaster really blew me away, the ride is a barrage of non-stop ejector. Some of the highlights of the ride...

    Opinions on the best European coaster, and why

    Out of what I have ridden I would say Kärnan, however I could see Lech or Untamed top it based off of what I like as Untamed firstly is an RMC and it looks to be really aggressive and have some really strong airtime, and Lech looks to be really forceful and aggressive. I wasn’t the biggest fan...

    Roughest B&M?

    Vortex at Carowinds is just awful. The roughness of the ride combined with the standing factor makes it one of the worst B&Ms

    Best coaster for airtime in the UK?

    Icon has some surprising airtime, the top hat has some decent ejector, the 2 hills going into the 2nd launch have good ejector, the immelnam has nice floater, the large airtime hill has good ejector, the twisted hill has good ejector and the outward bank has good floater.

    Thorpe Park: What could the future hold?

    What everyone is forgetting is that Thorpe’s last 2 major investments weren’t that successful considering the price, so it might still be some time until we see another large investment. Also, while it isn’t the most popular, DBGT was a large investment, and at the time that is what many...

    Possible new ride/rollercoaster coming to Thorpe Park in 2019

    The park have said that while it is in their long term plan for Logger’s area to be redeveloped, it is not their primary concern. Also for now we shouldn’t be seeing any announcement for a new ride, as they are more focussed on the special experiences available for the park’s 40th anniversary...

    Most polarising roller coasters

    I’m surprised Skyrush hasn’t been mentioned already, some people love it for its intensity and extreme ejector, while some people can’t get over the restraints, and it ruins the ride for them. Also recently Nemesis has become quite polarising, it still has its fanboys, however recently some...
