    What was the coaster that helped you brave your fears, and what were they?

    Corkscrew helped me on my way in 2001/2, but it was Oblivion in 2003 that was my big moment of overcoming fear of big rides.

    Accident at Lightwater Valley

    He's out of hospital now but still "recovering at home". https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/teesside-news/boy-who-fell-lightwater-valley-16434001 It also mentions that LWV have said the ride will be closed "indefinitely" (unsurprisingly).

    Favourite coasters by colour

    Not to be taken too seriously! We all enjoy praising or condemning a ride's colour scheme, so what's your favourite of each colour? I reckon: Red - Extreme Rusher Blue - (half of) Twisted Colossus Yellow - Superman Something Spanish (I'm going to count the colour of the rails here) Green -...

    IOA | Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure | Intamin LSM Launch (Dragon Challenge replacement)

    Is 10 hours the longest recorded queue time in the history of roller coasters? I think probably yes. Plus, as this ride has a pretty solid throughput I'm also going to say this is probably the greatest number of people who have ever been in the queue for a single roller coaster in history...

    Last Cred Review

    Expedition GeForce - one I've been massively looking forward to, and had very high expectations for it. I'll keep this as a cred review rather than a trip report, but in brief the SRII was closed so +1 for my ever-growing list of spites, although I did get the Zierer +1. Anyway, back to the...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    If you have a rubber duck with you then you can get in for the discount rate of £8 instead of the full price. It's a classic Merlin fun PR thing, nothing wrong with doing this sort of whacky promotion although clearly it's nothing to get excited about!

    Rumoured Coaster - Flamingo Land

    Yeah it's weird; I guess there is no requirement to include it. The final turn of new coaster is coming *very* close to the Velocity station:

    Eurostar is BACK!

    Nice one @roomraider , I knew you wouldn't let me down! Let's hope that one day this coaster escapes Russia and makes it back to somewhere more accessible!

    Yes. I'm also excited for the whole of the rest of the ride.

    Accident at Lightwater Valley

    His condition is described as "Critical but stable" The full article is here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-england-york-north-yorkshire-48474770 I am not impressed that somebody (the BBC?) seems to have approached the mother of the poor girl who died in 2001 on this ride for comment...

    What ride gives the best airtime(not amount beat)

    Of those options I have only ridden Shambhala which is the king of floater airtime, but peak strength of airtime is pretty low, probably not even in the top 10 strongest airtime coasters I have ridden; Silver Star has stronger. So I'm not going to vote. Probably the strongest I have experienced...

    Accident at Lightwater Valley

    ^ None of those are happening because the park has no money, which is pretty evident when you visit or look at their recent (lack of) investments. I really hope they come through this as it would be an absolute travesty to lose The Ultimate because of some accidents on a :emoji_poop:y Reverchon...

    Energylandia | Zadra | RMC I-Box

    Yes please state your referenced source for your humorous speculation. On a serious note, yes Zadra is pretty overwhelming, not sure how they will top it.

    Am I Crazy?

    You are asking if going to Disneyland means you are crazy? Good news - the answer is No. Anyway, it will be less busy in October than the summer, especially on the week days.

    Hyperion?

    Best floorless

    I believe "Superman Something Spanish" is the accepted workaround.

    Odd number #1s

    Not many other folks seem to have crowned Hyperion #1 which I found a little surprising. I was genuinely astonished to see people saying they thought Shambhala was better. I guess it's a little short and unrefined, plus it's a car park coaster. However I love it as it's pretty different to any...
