    What other hobbies do you have?

    Not been on this thread yet so thought I might as well share my hobby too! Music....I absolutely love any kind of dance music, specifically techno and house. Have had an interest in it since I was a kid and the past few years I've started to do DJ sets in my city in underground techno clubs...

    What is the most surprising airtime moment you’ve experienced in your enthusiast career?

    The Incredible Hulk, just after the first corkscrew that goes down into the trough. Wasn't expecting any airtime on that coaster at all however there seems to be a slight dip-down after the corkscrew that managed to pop me out of the seat for a second, was totally surprised!

    SeaWorld San Diego | Emperor | B&M Dive Coaster | 2022

    The way their opening dates are looking, I could see Pantheon opening in February. Seems they could be opening a new coaster in each of their SW and BG parks for each month (Feb-March) February - Ice Breaker & Pantheon March - Iron Gwazi & Emperor Should give them a good boost at the start of...

    Cancelled theme park projects you wish had come to fruition

    Just out of curiosity where abouts have you seen these rumours/discussions? I've seen on forums and social media way too many times now that Thorpe is getting a new coaster but then nothing ever comes to light from it. I desperately want to see them get a new coaster soon so any news I hear on...

    Most surprising addition to a theme park?

    A fairly recent one for me would be the new RMC coming to Fun Spot Atlanta. I mean, the fun spot parks aren't exactly known for getting huge coasters (some decent woodies at their best) but the fact that a lot of people thought it would just be a family RMC and it turning out to be a...

    Intamin Blitz, Vekoma Shockwave or Mack Multi-Launch

    Personally I find Mack Multi-launches too calm if that's a way of putting it? I haven't ridden any Vekoma shockwaves but by the looks of the restrains they don't offer the exposure that Intamin's current lap bars do. I'm all for snappy and intense launches and Intamin seems to be the best at...

    Your most embarrassing theme park moments

    The exact same thing happened to me a few years back. Was walking underneath just minding my own business then got absolutely drenched. Safe to say the folks in the queue line were entertained 😂

    CoasterForce COVID-19 Vaccination Poll

    I was 19 when I got my last AstraZeneca jab (I work with a lot of the public and sometimes vulnerable people). Felt awful from the first dose but not a thing from the second. Will admit I was a bit sketchy about getting it after hearing all the stuff about blood clots however I've been fine ever...

    Favourite coaster inversions?

    A few that have been mentioned as above: Nemesis' Zero-G over the station. Montu's batwing. One that first sprung to mind for me was the Zero-G roll straight after the launch on The Incredible Hulk - some serious whip on that. Another inversion that I absolutely loved was the Pretzel Loop on...

    Islands of Adventure vs Magic Kingdom

    Clear winner is IOA for me. As much as I was amazed by Magic Kingdom and loved the classic feel it had to it, I just can't see anything beating IOA in my opinion. The music as you enter, walking down Port of Entry and hearing Hulk in the background. The view of the castle at MK whilst walking...

    Marmite Coasters

    A marmite coaster that springs to mind for me is Icon. Some think it's the best coaster in the UK. Some however, find it tame and forceless. Gotta say I was really let down with it - went on it so many times to see if it'd change my mind but I just couldn't get what all the hype was about. It...

    Silverwood | Stunt Pilot | RMC Raptor | 2021

    Yeah I gotta admit I much prefer the intensity of the first two raptors. This and JD seem to be much more graceful through their layouts. They still look like great coasters and they're still fast, but I've just built up an expectation from the first two that these things are made to be insane...
