    Make fun of my favorite roller coaster.

    It's called skyrush, yet it's not a launch coaster and most of the ride is low to the ground. The person who designed the station just gave up in making it anyway efficient and it's basically like Hersheypark's underachieving and problemed child, while Candymonium is the kid who's going to...

    Chessington World Of Adventures | Croc Drop | Zamperla Sky (Drop) Tower

    :eek:I don't think I have ever seen a drop tower with a three hour wait, part of me thinks the park might be exaggerating to sell fast tracks. The ride looks awesome in it's presentation, but only 8 riders per cycle is ridiculous for a park with Chessington's attendance, somewhere Warldey is...

    Alton Towers Recreation

    With the parks being closed during Lockdown 3 I decided to finally get round to making a recreation in Planet Coaster. In the days when RCT3 was king, I used to do almost nothing but real life parks, but for some reason or another I find them more difficult to do in planet coaster, whether it's...

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    I am hyped for this! Seems to have old school snappiness with the grace of newer B&M, it's even more impressive how fast it seems with all the buildings you fly-by. In terms of appearance, the ride isn't quite done yet, but I am surprised about people complaining about the lack of theming, the...

    Notable Losses Since 2001

    I loved reading this! I never even knew that Gebirgsbahn existed, but best believe I am doing my research now 🤓 For me personally, Corkscrew at Flamingo Land felt like a bigger loss back in 2011, while I get that the Alton Towers version is more important and iconic, the fact that we had a...

    Music Recommendations

    If anyone is into Hardcore/metalcore I'd recommend the bands Knocked Loose and Gideon. Knocked Loose have some sick breakdowns and have been playing with some death and groove metal influences recently. I've also been listening to kittie recently, I love Nu Metal and they play the more heavy...

    "Now Showing"

    Melancholia is a beautiful film, I was worried that I'd find Kirsten Dunst character annoying, but Trier does a great job at having the audience sympathise with her. I don't think I'd sit through it again anytime soon though, Trier's films aren't exactly relaxing Sent from my SM-A217F using...

    "Now Showing"

    I Care A Lot: Rosamund Pike gives a strong performance and the film has interesting things to say about some of the immoral aspects capitalism, the film is entertaining and is well paced, Peter Dinklage pulls of his role well, balancing the line of playing it straight while also having fun with...

    Slowest and fastest coaster braking systems?

    In terms of sudden brakes I think of Shockwave at Drayton Manor. On the other note B&M Giga coasters do have trains that go quickly though their first break run, mostly to aid faster dispatches. ElToroRyan did a great video explaining why on the subject.

    Favourite ride types to build in Planet Coaster?

    For me it's either the Vector (Mack Launch/Mega coaster) or the S.L.V (Schwarzkopf Looper) as they give you plenty of options to use when coaster building and Mack/Intamin multi-launch coasters are my favoured type of coaster helps Although it is hard to make smooth transitions with the...

    Great report! I hope that Alton Towers keeps this event in future years. I know how you feel with cancelled trips, I was also going to poland, but that got cancelled, then Denmark, then that had to be cancelled, if my Blackpool mini break doesn't work out then I'm done. It's good that you...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Working in retail it is frustrating, as you're right, it is impossible to police. We ask people to wear masks in store, if they don't have one we ask if they're exempt, however if people want to disrespect the rules they are free to do so as we have not been given the authority to refuse entry...
