    Energylandia | Abyssus | Vekoma Shockwave+

    Thanks for clearing that question. I appreciate when a park tries to go the extra mile to make a new area feel complete with many attractions but including a clone of Saven is not the wisest choice. It looks so out of place (Saven's saving grace is the scenery and greenery around the track...

    Knott's Teasing Possible Pony Express Removal?

    Or the obnoxious sound that these coasters make when running. If that ride was to be pitched to Alton Towers it would make the Ropers sue the park TWICE. The first lawsuit because of the awful sound and the second one for being so stupid as to even think of installing one of these. From minute...

    Energylandia | Abyssus | Vekoma Shockwave+

    Sorry if I am late for the party but is that a clone of Saven at Farup Sommerland?

    Any cloned coasters that you like more than the original?

    - Batman La Fuga is so much better than the original Batman at SFGAm, both as far as themeing goes and also ride experience. - Speed of Sound. Not just a better boomerang. The best one by far. - Piraten. Granted I have only ridden this and Kawasemi but as a final product Piraten has a much more...

    Nigloland | Unknown | New rollercoaster for 2021

    What if the park is installing a Mack Xtreme Spinner? It would be innovative, possibly launched and still feature inversions. I reckon a Big Dipper would be a great fit too, as the park is not too large.

    Bellewaerde | Wakala | Gerstlauer Family Semi-Shuttle

    Three aspects I loved about this coaster: - How they kept / planted so much greenery around the coaster! - The fact that the second tire-lift hill looked almost like a mild launch? - That's how you do a spike (the train almost got to the end of it! (Looking at you Vekoma and your half-arsed...

    New track at the B&M plant

    I guess SC-B must be Dragon Khan (it makes sense chronologically) and SC-D must be Medusa (now Bizarro) at SFGAdv, as it opened the same year as Kraken (2000). I guess SC-F must be SDC's Wildifre, then, which opened in 2001. I am really enjoying reading all these codes and putting into...

    Odd transfer tracks

    This looks quite complex to be honest. BTW, I might or I might not have been distracted by the hot EP-employee during the tour around the maintenance bays.

    IoA | Unknown | Jurassic Park Intamin Blitz

    That twisting drop into a trench leading to the second launch section is giving me strong Taron vibes and I am living for it! This coaster has the potential to become as good and iconic as Hulk was when the park opened, and it looks like it will please both GP and enthusiasts alike. Win-win if...

    Gröna Lund | Unknown | B&M Invert

    I am not really familiar with B&Ms code. Didn't they change the coding system so that sneaky enthusiasts wouldn't reveal where those track pieces were headed before parks even announced their attractions?

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    I am eager to see 3-train testing! Do you reckon Kings Island will debut this ride this year or will they wait until the next season?

    Gröna Lund | Unknown | B&M Invert

    I thnk that some B&M supports are also/used to be manufactured in Europe. As far as track goes, I think B&M used to fabricate their track in Switzerland, in the old Giovanola facility. Coaster Studios has a video of the Clermont Steel plant showing inverted coaster track ready to be shipped. Is...

    Odd transfer tracks

    I knew how these Arrow transfer sections worked but it still amazes me how creative they went to make the most of the space available. I would have loved to "ride" one of those trains going down the little dip into the maintenance shed. Thanks @Hixee for shedding some light on the Thorpe...

    Odd transfer tracks

    Since parks are closed and we are bored out of our minds with this covid-19 quarantine situation, let's start a topic about transfer tracks because why not? So, I was thinking, what are the oddest transfer track systems on coasters? And what transfer tracks are oddly placed in a coaster layout...

    Correct way to pronounce "Candymonium"

    Let's see how I pronounce it: "You can all have that B&M crap while I lap Skyrush" Did I get it right?

    Gröna Lund | Unknown | B&M Invert

    I recall reading somewhere that new gen invert trains are a bit wider, so if Grona Lund work with tight clearances they might want to avoid those vests (wishful thinking).

    Gröna Lund | Unknown | B&M Invert

    Oh, don't get me started on seat belts on hypers. Killing capacity for the sake of insurance costs is Cedar Fair's way to piss me off.

    Gröna Lund | Unknown | B&M Invert

    I want to believe that Grona Lund know better than installing vests on a B&M invert. Some B&M trends should/will fade over time, just like the V-shaped trains on hypercoasters. When was the last one built? Was it Shambhala? That is 8 years ago! I really hope B&M realises that their traditional...

    Tripsdrill | Hals-Über-Kopf & Volldampf | Vekoma STC & Family Boomerang Coaster

    I agree that this is no way running any faster than in other previous videos. Many people want to crown HüK as Tripsdrill's best coaster and I think in terms of overall product, Karacho wins hands down. This combo of Vekoma is a perfect step between junior coasters and thrill rides like...
