    Coasting Through the Alps

    Day 1 - Osttirodler and Freizeitpark Familienland It's been a while since I've done one of these (I believe last November for Ai Pioppi), but, truth be told, I haven't travelled all that much this year so far. I had a couple of setbacks at the University and also a bit in my personal life, so I...

    Next Gen Wiegand Alpine Coaster for Altmühlbob

    A rather interesting version of Alpine Coaster is taking shape in Bavaria. The ride is one of Wiegand's new model line, called Sport Coaster. It doesn't have any rider operated brakes (much like Dawson Duel in that regard), which allows it to have these huge hills all through the layout. Here's...

    PTR: Osteria Ai Pioppi

    So, Ai Pioppi. This place has been on my radar for ages, ever since it was first discovered by the enthusiast community (which was about 4 years ago). It's located relatively near Slovenia, but a bit far to 'just go' on a whim. But, the past Sunday, 27th of October was the date we finally agreed...

    Best Coaster by Decade

    As a person that likes to make long and pointless lists, I decided to make another one for my 2000th post on here. What's everyone's favorite coaster by the decade of their respective opening years? As an added extra, I've also added my favorite creds from the year of opening. 2010's: Taron...

    Eurovision 2016

    As always, it's once again me who's bringing up this topic on the forums. The event starts in about an hour, at 9pm CET and 8pm British time. Who are your favorites for the night? I'm personally going with the simplistic approach of Latvia and France and the powerful, but nevertheless cute...

    Far West Valley (3 New Rides) for Mirabilandia

    After the big investment (money thrown away) of DiVertical in 2012, Mirabilandia is now finally ready to invest into new rides. It doesn't seem to be anything major for this year (Disk'O, some small flat ride and kiddie drop towers), but they are promising a much more major addition for the 2017...

    Bonus Creds

    Have you ever been to a park (or any place in that matter) where you expected to tick off the rides that were on rcdb/coaster-count, but found some unlisted coasters as well? Or have you ever just come across a fair, that you didn't expect to be there when planning your initial route for the...

    Gardaland | Kung Fu Panda Master | Fabbri Spinner

    Not the most exiting of news, but nevertheless, it seems we will have a new cred on our hands for 2016. From what I can understand the coaster will stand where Top Spin used to be, in the area between Magic Mountain and Ortobruco Tour. Here is a badly (google translate) translated article from...

    Roller Coaster Manufacturers' Census

    During the summer of 2015 I kept myself from getting bored working on a fairly useless project. Basically, I was putting all of the coasters (or rather their manufacturers) I'd found on rcdb into a excel file (where I've split the coasters by continents where they are found), allowing a fairly...

    The Lost Coaster of St. Petersburg (and Barcelona)

    We all know of the great American Roller coaster Boom of the early 20th Century in which countless coasters had been built across the country, before the era being abruptly ended by great depression. But few coaster enthusiast know that Europe also had a fair few coasters (mostly scenic...

    NedGer 2015: Day 3 - Efteling Fairytales

    This year hasn't been too filled with coasters for me for the first 8 months of it. The only place with coasters I'd visited was the local fair, of which I've also written a short trip report. With that in mind I was crazy excited for a 13 day trip I scheduled myself for the 2nd part of...

    Has anybody on here done that? I know that a lot of you have been to the place, but has anyone done it without a car?

    Stand-Up Waterslides

    So, these are the thing right now. Aquamagis Plettenburg has opened a short indoor one about a month ago (which I believe many of you have already heard about) and has now opened a more substantial outdoor one as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqim9xhO1FA So... What do you think of...

    Siam Park Unveils Singha

    The Spanish (or better said Tenerife's) world class waterpark Siam Park has just opened their new waterslide, Singha, the other day. The ride is Proslide's hybrid between their Rocket Blast and Flying Saucer and, complete with Siam Park's level of theming/landscaping, it looks fantastic. See it...
