    Your worst spite

    Forked out to go to IOA twice, both times VelociCoaster was down all day. I think I’ve given up for the time being!

    Drayton Manor sold to Looping Group (page 5)

    They are brand new boats from Intamin. The same as the ones on Infinity Falls.

    CWOA | Project Amazon | B&M Wing Coaster (Jumanji Land?)| 2023

    I’ll have to credit a post I read on the TowersStreet forum here, but it does seem that that final helix that will be taken both forwards and backwards is banked at an extreme angle that seems to me like it would be highly uncomfortable with static seats at such a low speed. Could we have some...

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi | 2022

    Without giving encouragement to the excessive posting, I feel there is a fair argument that 2021 annual passes were advertised to give access to Iron Gwazi from the spring. That’s certainly why I bought mine and it’s not long off expiry now. Does leave a sour taste.

    New-Gen Zamperla Coasters

    Would love if Pleasure Beach decided to go beat their own record for the UK’s tallest coaster, which the taller model would be. Likely affordable too.

    Silverwood | Stunt Pilot | RMC Raptor | 2021

    I’d imagine it’s probably more to do with technical adjustments due to the 10 car trains more than anything else.

    The World of David Walliams is coming to Alton Towers

    It looks fine. It’s a kids ride, none of us are kids and we aren’t supposed to get excited about it. At the end of the day it’s a new dark ride in a location that has never previously housed a ride, so it’s not like they ripped anything of worth out to fit it in. I think it’ll probably be...

    CWOA | Project Amazon | B&M Wing Coaster (Jumanji Land?)| 2023

    There would not need to be a public consultation of this nature if the development was so small, this will be something of sizeable scale.

    Silverwood | Stunt Pilot | RMC Raptor | 2021

    Smart move, was probably the only part of the ride vulnerable to stalling. Now it can probably be run in higher wind speeds than before.

    Possible new ride/rollercoaster coming to Thorpe Park in 2019

    Okay, so some new Thorpe Park news has surfaced, potentially exciting but maybe not, we don’t know at this point. Thanks to JoshC on another forum (Thorpe Park Mania) for some of this information. Back in 2017, the park submitted an application to the local planning authority that would dictate...

    SeaWorld Orlando | Ice Breaker | Premier Rides Custom Sky Rocket | 2022

    The original reason given for comfort collars was to make people feel more secure going upside down. So, what’s the point here? It seems a bit silly to be honest.

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster | 2022

    To be fair, none of the other majors have millions in monthly expenses to maintain the welfare of tens of thousands of animals, which does put SeaWorld in a bit of a unique situation. Although yes, it must be hard for contractors.

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster | 2022

    To ensure that they do have enough cash to last them through this crisis?

    B&M Surf Coaster Thread

    SeaWorld have already spent $4m, probably more, on this project. Delay is probable, cancellation is unlikely.

    Kentucky Kingdom planning an RMC Raptor for the 2021 season?

    ^I have no idea, I'd be interested to know though.
