    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    I'm intrigued and excited to see how the ride turns out, but I must admit that I'm not particularly excited by the construction at present. I think this may be partly down to the fact that it will be some time before I ride FLY, but part of me also thinks that I almost find the project a little...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    I think it's so they can accommodate 3 trains without the use of an MCBR.

    We need to talk about Drayton...

    Well, G Force is being replaced with a new family track ride and a seaside-themed area, for starters. I could also see some sort of new family coaster replacing the Buffalo; they were allegedly planning some sort of S&S family suspended launch coaster to replace it for the 2018 season, but the...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    I am kind of thinking this myself; as someone who's lived in amongst the UK scene for my entire life, I'd be smitten with this coaster! Perhaps it's because Kings Island is located in the East Coast of America, a market that's already somewhat saturated with quality coasters, including a taller...

    Six Flags Great Adventure to receive coaster in 2020?

    I personally think that lots of the clues make reference to a potential duelling coaster; look at the likes of "villain with complex duality" and "better together, or go it alone?"!

    We need to talk about Drayton...

    I definitely agree with where @Ben is coming from, personally. I don't really think that us thrillseekers are who Drayton wants to cater for anymore. Thomas Land has been massively successful for Drayton Manor; every year they've invested into it (apart from the Splash Canyon incident in 2017)...

    Energylandia's Future Additions

    Are Energylandia trying to take SFMM's record for most coasters in the world or something?

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Perhaps a figure 8 would be a better name for it? To be fair, I also think Shambhala's looks more like a figure 8 than an ampersand...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    To be fair, I can get where @CrashCoaster is coming from with the Shambhala ampersand comparisons; that was the first thing that came into my mind when I saw that element! Am I the only one who's remotely excited about this coaster, or anything B&M are building in 2020? I think both Orion and...

    Are you in Poland for your birthday or something? If you get to ride, would you mind leaving us a review?

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Even though we've known the basic gist of the layout for a while now due to the blueprints, I still think this looks like a really fun coaster! Fury and Leviathan both get really good reviews, so I don't see why this wouldn't either! As for the "is it a giga?" debate, I'd personally say yes...

    Removal of G-Force at Drayton Manor (2005 - 2018)

    Ah yes; they do seem to have edited the article to remove the part about G-Force! I'd presume that's by the request of the park, meaning that what was written was presumably official to some extent!
