    Kings Dominion Volcano and Crypt Replacements

    It's been suggested that it's possibly a staffing issue which would fit with the struggles other US parks are having at the moment.

    Kings Dominion Volcano and Crypt Replacements

    I would have put my money on Anaconda going first but this removal would make more sense location-wise due to it's proximity to the Volcano plot. However, I really enjoy these rides so I will be sad to see it go if it does. I guess the other potential reasons for this change are long term...

    Wicker Man vs Megafobia

    If Megafobia was retracked it would likely be much clearer winner but as it's got rough the decision is less clear. Without a doubt Wickerman is more re-rideable than Megafobia but Megafobia just has that much more kick with a better layout so I've gone with that. Wickerman never seems to...

    Interesting, thanks for the insight!

    Walibi Belgium | Kondaa | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    I have two questions for those who have ridden it (and the coasters mentioned): How does the drop compare to EGF (with that same right turn) and how does the layout compare to Hyperion? I agree that the non-inverting cobra roll looks like it kills the speed quite a lot but am hoping that it's...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Due to the increasing uncertainty surrounding large events it seems that a number of businesses are working on a plan to "move" Oktoberfest to Dubai for this year. Yes, Dubai. More information can be found here: https://oktoberfest-dubai.com/en/ and here...

    Rumours That Hansa Park Might Be Sold

    Really hoping this isn't true. The family seemed to really care about the park and have done a great job with it.

    New rides @ small parks

    Well that is a surprise! It looks to be on the old topple tower spot. I wondered whether it was temporary but it looks to be cemented in. There was quite a difference between Air and Mechanica and this one looks quite fast so it could be decent. Either way I am surprised to see it! Apparently...

    Indiana Beach I Dreier Looper | Quimera relocation | 2021

    I mentioned this idea in a video and had the comment below saying that they're not compatible as they have slightly different angled wheels. No idea if you could just replace the wheel assemblies or perhaps this is just storage for the future.

    Craving an Average Park

    Last year certainly made me appreciate what the UK has to offer a lot more than I had done previously. Before there was definitely a focus of getting abroad at every given opportunity but last year I finally managed to mop up a load of UK bucket list things that I'd been meaning to do for years...

    New (temporary, hired) flat rides for Alton Towers

    My only really tiny, nitpicking issue was that two of the rides aren't 80s rides. The super trooper paratrooper is almost brand new model that came out in the last year or so and the smashing jump is relatively new to the scene as well. The waltzer is a British classic so that's a nice choice to...

    Mopping up UK credits- Great Yarmouth, PWH, Oakwood, Brean, West Midlands and more

    Ah yes, West Midland Safari Park. Nice report MouseAT! I had been before but only had one of the credits so was pleased to finally mop up the rest. The park is safari themed, including the rides and restaurants so it's more immersive than some animal attractions and feels very theme park-esque...
