    Coronavirus: A Thread

    After so much (non theme park) discussion in the "Impact on Theme Parks" thread, I thought I might try and make an entirely separate thread for people to post, talk, discuss, argue, etc. about coronavirus. I don't have much to comment on with this first post. All I'll say is Wear a mask. For...

    Wild Mouse Count

    All types! All kinds! Seems like a nice companion topic to the current spinning variety we have. Hopkins Wooden Wild Mouse Luna Park Sydney Mack Wilde Maus Wild Mouse Hersheypark Dark Knight Six Flags Great Adventure Goofy's Sky School Disney California Adventure Sand Serpent Busch Gardens...

    Wearing Masks in the Parks

    So, I recently was watching the grand reopening of Indiana Beach, and I saw something that troubled me. Very few masks and almost no social distancing. In fact, it's something I've seen in a lot of footage of American parks operating post-COVID. Most guests and a fair amount of employees not...

    Why not Wood and Steel top 10s?

    One of my favorite things about Coasterforce is how (practically) everyone combines their top 10s. It just makes sense to me, especially since wooden coasters are becoming more and more like steel coasters, but it's something that is pretty rare in the enthusiast community. I prefer to think...

    Rank the Stand Ups

    It's a dying breed of coaster as parks continue with their floorless conversions or just scrap them. So why not do a ranking topic on it? Georgia Scorcher - the only one of these I thoroughly enjoyed. Perfect amount of g-forces to not kill the legs but keep it exciting. Shockwave, Kings...

    Best moments on awful coasters

    Pretty simple idea. What's a great moment on a coaster that is otherwise, a bit crap? First thing that pops in my mind is the loop on Nighthawk. That ride was constant terror apart from that loop, which I think is an underrated inversion for a flying coaster. There's also the airtime hills on...

    Riding Under the Influence

    I figured, hey, why not share some stories of riding coasters in an altered state. It'll probably be mostly drunk stories but feel free to include any other drug-related stories*. I smoked a non-cigarette before marathoning Skyrush at night. As one could imagine, it was wild and easily one of my...

    What if Star Wars Land fails?

    This may be a topic that would only interest me, but, after Star Wars fans boycotted the Solo movie, it became a massive flop. This got me thinking. The Last Jedi pissed a lot of people off, and the ensuing boycott seems to still be in effect. Those hardcore fans that would go to Disneyland and...

    Coasters in Media

    This is just something I've been thinking about, and I felt that there wasn't a proper topic to talk about it. There's a topic for media related directly to roller coasters, but how about all the coasters that pop up in movies and TV shows. It isn't about the coaster per say, but they are there...

    Rank Magic Mountain Coasters

    Who doesn't love ranking? Italics for spites. X2 Tatsu (spited :mad:) Twisted Colossus Goliath Scream! Full Throttle Green Lantern (spited ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) Revolution Apocalypse (spited ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) Batman Superman Canyon Blaster Ninja Road Runner Express Gold Rusher Speedy Gonzales Riddler's Revenge...

    Rank Cedar Point Coasters

    Seems like people love listing things, myself included, so I thought ranking a park's coaster seemed like a decent idea. I considered doing a ranking of Magic Mountain, but this is the year of Cedar Point. Steel Vengeance Maverick Millennium Force Top Thrill Dragster Magnum Raptor GateKeeper...

    Top 10 Wood/Steel

    One aspect that I really appreciate about Coasterforce is that everyone ranks their coasters together. I just don't think ranking them seperately really adds much of anything. However, I thought it would at least make an interesting topic! This is probably somewhere in the forums already, but I...

    Best Coaster Names

    With the worst coaster names thread, I thought a counter-balance of best coaster names would make an interesting thread! Thread's pretty self explanatory, and... you're not reading this anyway probably. Eh, all good ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I would say one of the best is Kumba, simple but a perfect...

    Dudley Do-Right a Water Coaster?

    So, I've been wondering this ever since I watched this video: Around 1:30, they explicitly say that the log flume connects to rails and becomes a literal roller coaster. I never considered it a coaster myself, but I think it is just as much a coaster (if not more) than Journey to Atlantis in...

    Rank the Disney Parks

    Sorry, another Disney post. However, I'm very interested in people's responses! Here's my list: 1. Tokyo Disneysea: It's just what I consider the best theme park in the world. Nothing out there looks like it could possibly match it (even Phantasialand) for me. It's on an entirely different...

    Cedar Fair CEO Matt Ouimet to step down

    This isn't the biggest news or anything, but I felt it was worth a topic. He started as CEO in 2012, and there have been some good editions to Cedar Fair parks brought out since then. However, parks like Valeyfair!, Michigan's Adventure, Dorney Park, and Worlds of Fun have been sort of left to...

    Best Looking Roller Coasters

    With @Sandman 's topic about good looking bad coasters, I felt that a topic about the best looking roller coasters overall would make a good topic! I'm trying to avoid the prettiest roller coaster on-ride environments. So, not the Beast or anything like that. Just the best coaster to look at...

    Best Coaster Countries

    This is a topic I was thinking about recently. Where would you rank the best countries for roller coasters? You can do a list of 1 or 5 or 10 or 100. It's just a topic for discussion. I am more about quality over quantity, so it'll show in my ranking. I will also ignore Disney parks since this...

    Favorite Park Song/Music

    While I'm unsure if other people have a fascination with this aspect of theme parks, I thought a topic dedicated to theme park music seemed appropriate. Along with theme parks and movies, music is a real passion of mine, so I find myself often loving the musical compositions in theme parks. I've...

    Northeast US: Knoebels

    I’ve made two recent trips to Six Flags Great Adventure, so I thought I would make a trip report. My first trip was with a flash pass on a relatively busy day while my second trip was without a flash pass, but the park was nearly empty. I think I’m not going to do a chronological order since my...
