    Gardaland Retracking Shaman

    I am somewhat amazed that they are investing the money into such an old roller coaster. It wasn't a particularly memorable ride when I went to Gardaland, so surely they would be better to just pull it down and replace it.

    Paultons Park | Tornado Springs | New Area | 2021

    Personally, I think the footers look pretty big for a small family coaster? And surely small little coasters don't take 2 years to build?

    Universal Studios Beijing | 2021

    There is part of me that think this looks awesome, there is also a part of me can't help but think they've really just carbon copied rides and attractions from their other parks, and just altered the theme slightly. It's a shame, as there is so much material you could work with.

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    Does anyone know how much this total project is costing? Grona Lund is one of my favourite parks, and when I visited, everything was so tightly compacted together, so it must be one hell of an engineering team to get this whopper put in!

    Djurs Sommerland | Unknown | Mack Powered Coaster | 2022

    Although I didn't experience Jungle Safari, I am sure they've got something special up their sleeves. In the past 10 years, the park has become almost unrecognisable, so although it may not be the 0 - 100 MPH triple launched roller coaster we were hoping for, I am sure they know what they're...

    Djurs Sommerland | Unknown | Mack Powered Coaster | 2022

    I visited Djurs Sommerland a few weeks ago, and although it was a gorgeous little park, this definitely wasn't the ride they were crying out for. There were a lot of teenagers there, so there is definitely a market for something a little more extreme, as the longest queues of the day were...

    A park with the best and worst coaster in one!

    Throwing my hat in the ring, I would say Six Flags Magic Mountain. X2 was one of the most horrific experiences as far as coasters go, followed by Full Throttle which was one of my most enjoyable. Although, SFMM has a long list of horrible, rough, old, headbanging coasters.

    Port Aventura / La Liga Theme Park

    I personally, find the entire concept utterly bizarre. The world of football and theme parks are totally different. Ferrari World I can get, due to the nice cars, speed, etc, but this? I really think that this is a potentially disastrous concept, that will draw money away from the actual parks...

    Movie Park Germany | Unknown | Intamin Multi Dimension Coaster | 2021

    I think the German market in comparison to the rest of the world managed to pull it back fairly quickly, and have had a relatively good summer by the looks of it in comparison. I think this is a wise investment, and I have no doubt that they will do a good job on the theming, as they've done...

    Markers at Kings Island (2021/22?)

    Are the really realistically going to be opening another huge roller coaster just after a Orion, and just after one of the worst finical implications for the tourism industry in living memory? Maybe I'm being cynical, as it looks great, but really, that quickly :oops: Maybe I'm just jealous...

    Bollywood Parks Dubai | Unknown | GCI Wooden Hybrid Coaster | 2021

    That was my fear, having done Coaster Express in Parque Warner Madrid, which is single most painful experience in my life, I hope GCI's fair better in 40 degree plus environments!

    Bollywood Parks Dubai | Unknown | GCI Wooden Hybrid Coaster | 2021

    That must have been their thought process, they thought they would diversify the lineup and attract people. A big GCI wooden coaster would do it for me thats for sure! Do wooden coasters work well in such high temperatures out of interest?

    Bollywood Parks Dubai | Unknown | GCI Wooden Hybrid Coaster | 2021

    Personally, it seems a bit of a strange fit for the Bollywood park as they have very little in terms of rides. I thought it was more of a show and experience park rather than actual rides.

    Schwaben Park | Hummel Brummel | Wie-Flyer

    It's certainly not the most aesthetically pleasing attraction I've seen...
