    Disney's Hollywood Studios | Star Wars Galaxy's Edge | 2019 Park Expansion

    Surely you could say that about most movie rides? You are usually there living a moment of the spectacle and ideas, not there to observe the actual final outcome of all films. The original Star Tours ride even has the StarSpeeder 3000 you are in help to take out the Death Star! That wasn't in...

    Energylandia | Abyssus | Vekoma Shockwave+ | 2021

    It's going quick but I doubt it will be done before August looking at these photos.

    Probably for when rebel scum get inside or if some janitor who got promoted to Stormtrooper gets any ideas. ;)

    Disney's Hollywood Studios | Star Wars Galaxy's Edge | 2019 Park Expansion

    Watched the ride through POV of Rise of the resistance and think it would be my favourite non coaster ride when/if I get a chance to ride it. Stunning. I've been incredibly disappointed with how Disney has tackled Star Wars. There were flashes of greatness in Force Awakens (mostly visually -...

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2021

    Not been to Flamingo Land but I'd imagine this would rank as my favourite coaster there straight away. It's a toss up between that and Velocity. The others look too gimmicky for me to like or want to re-ride them I reckon. Hope they get a woodie after this if this does well for them.

    Vulcania | Namazu | Intamin Family Launch Coaster | 2021

    I said almost. It's nothing like a themed area obviously, but there are not that many opportunities to get close to a low to the ground coaster where I have been and where the park takes the effort to integrate pathways with a coaster design. Most launch coasters seem like they could be removed...

    Vulcania | Namazu | Intamin Family Launch Coaster | 2021

    Nice integration of pathways in that coaster design, tunnels and a coaster bridge. Should be quite an immersive experience walking around, almost like in Klugheim.

    Hopefully the residents in the area won't block these designs.

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster | 2020

    I think it will be more intense than say Galactica/Air since it will be taller and probably faster but it won't be like Taron 80mph quick direction changes flying out of your seat madness.

    Walt Disney Studios Park | Unknown | Rock 'n' Roller Coaster retheme | 2021

    The head banging got much worse recently I reckon. I don't remember it being a headbanger at all before 2009. I went back this year after 10 years to ride Rock n Roller for the last time but the corkscrew towards the end was near unbearable, especially in the back. I came to marathon Rock N...

    Thorpe Park: What could the future hold?

    I think Knightmare is unsalvageable now and too old school to learn anything from going forwards. Regardless the ride experience is too similar to something like Colossus to provide anything new. I think Thorpe Park would most likely be looking at a smallish RMC or a medium sized GCI (maybe even...

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2021

    On a side note: I was pleasantly surprised with Olympia/Munich Looping this weekend at Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. Perhaps one of the best sit down coasters with inversions I've done (better than Colossus I'd say). Looking at the stats I was also surprised that Olympia is actually taller and...
