    Cedar Point or Kings Island

    OK, simple question - which park do you prefer, Cedar Point or Kings Island? Cedar Point isn't as great as it's made out to be, granted, but it's got three 'good' B&Ms, Millennium Force, fabulous Maverick, iconic TTD and Magnum, and some great water rides. It also has a lovely location and a...

    Your B&M Count

    So, there's currently 95 operating B&Ms across the Planet, and I'd like to know how many of those everyone has done! We haven't had a bragging topic in a while and I have a spreadsheet that allows me to answer easily - 70. Air, Alton Towers Nemesis, Alton Towers Oblivion, Alton Towers Kumba...

    Butterflys Are Not Roller Coasters

    I mean, they're really not, can we talk about this? I've been updating my count lately and taken off things that are considered borderline, including Nautic Jets, but why oh why are Butterflys counted? The only characteristic they have of a roller coaster is they "coast", but not on a proper...

    Ben and Darren's Fab Spite-Free East Coast Trip

    Today was top bants. We got to Clacton last night, stayed at a fab B&B and had a Spoons dinner followed by a night on the tiles in Clacton, watching a band play to an exclusive audience of 13 (11 if you don't count their mum and brother). We got up and had a fab breakfast that came with the...

    Zippin Pippin - GG Woodie for Bay Beach Amusement Park

    Couldn't find a topic, but, a park in Green Bay, Wisconsin is getting a woodie, which is apparently some sort of "recreation" of some old woodie somewhere? Anyway, Gravity Group <3 http://rcdb.com/9088.htm

    Las Vegas' Speed In Trouble?

    ... I hope. So, the Sahara is going to shut, and that is the casino where Speed is. Personally, I hope it gets melted down to scrap metal and made into something more useful. It's an awful, awful ride, don't care what anyone says. The resort "might" apparently move... Don't really see...

    Annual Pass Questions

    OK, I feel a bit dumb having to start this, but, whatever! I want a new annual pass. I now have to buy it though, sadly. My question is, online at the moment you can get 20% off. But, I'm not going to be able to collect mine for like, a month. If I buy it NOW, does it "start" from now, or...

    Superman: Ride of Steel... 2?

    http://www.sixflags.com/newEngland/info/News_SupermanRideOfSteelRelaunch.aspx It would appear that after X2, Six Flags is branching out the concept to Superman Ride of Steel up at SFNE. I say good - those trains are horrible and the ride doesn't ride that well, and an improvement on the...

    Behemoth/East Coast TPR Trips PTR

    Now, let me just say before I start this, this is a PTR I did for TPR just copied and pasted, so there'll probably be a lot of crap that doesn't make too much sense on here as I go along, but, whatever, I aint writing two trip reports so, live with it. OK, so I figured that although there’ll...
