    That drop looks so good. When it speeds up more the rest of the layout will be crazy.

    Rank the RMC inversions

    I’m not a particular fan of RMC inversions but there are 3 which stand out for me: 1. Zadra’s Stall- the inverted part is fun with some great zero g and a nice view of the park, but what really makes it is the exit of the stall, the whip combined with a surprising pop of ejector made it a really...

    Lightning Rod Status

    It’d be great if they replaced the launch with an InTraSys or an Indrivetec launch instead of using some random American company that has never worked with LSM propulsion or coasters before.

    Lightning Rod Status

    The launch isn’t the only problem, and it is necessary for the ride so it doesn’t valley.

    I think we all need to relax about this. The numbers someone has put out there are not going to make your experience of the ride better or worse, why can't we just appreciate the graphs for what they are and not get so defensive over it. But nonetheless, the airtime on this ride is going to be nuts.

    Sun Tzu Culture Park | Catapult Roller Coaster | Launched S&S

    Well it is designed by Alan Schilke as his other recent dive loops have similar shaping, as it’s shaped to give more airtime. I also get the general idea that the POVs never do justice to these air launch coasters, so considering that and that a couple elements already look insane from the POV...

    Rank the RMCs

    1. Lightning Rod- My current number 1 and deservingly so. I’m pretty sure I rode it when it launched slightly faster than how it is now, so when I reride it, it could fall down, however I still love this ride so much. The mountainous setting is really unique, but the airtime makes this ride for...

    Sun Tzu Culture Park | Catapult Roller Coaster | Launched S&S

    Well after a long time, we finally have a POV. It looks pretty good especially the twisted hill, but I know it’s hard to judge these S&S air launches from the POVs.

    El Toro is definitely less, obviously it isn't professional, but the most I've seen for it is -1.4g on the rolling thunder hill, and honestly it doesn't feel like it comes close to Skyrush. But the only rides that seem to pull even close to -2g are Skyrush and the Raptrs, though there were some...

    Walibi Belgium | Kondaa | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    ? I don’t know who is saying that, but it is far from the truth, while we don’t have accurate figure, El Toro and Steel Vengeance for certain don’t exceed -1.4g, and even that is a stretch. But -2g is just ridiculous, it isn’t safe as the upward acceleration causes blood to rush towards the head...

    Haha I don’t know if the information about the source is correct since I took that exact photo.

    Wodan vs Troy

    Troy easily. Firstly Wodan is fairly rough, and I usually don’t mind roughness on woodies, but Wodan’s really got to me. Also Wodan lacks the typical GCI turns with airtime on the transitions and sustained laterals, which Troy does so well. Wodan also focuses way too much on airtime which is...

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

    So a friend of mine who is a Tripsdrill passholder was able to ride Hals-Über Kopf today, and these were his brief opinions on it: The drop is nothing special and was quite forgettable, but the inversion were all amazing and had great floater during them. As for the rest of the layout, the turns...

    Just some new aerial shots of the park, it seems to be shaping up well with lots of the queue and station for the firestorm going up. Source:

    Vulcania | Namazu | Intamin Family Launch Coaster | 2021

    Currently it’s more of an educational park however they’re now trying to develop it more into a theme park as in 2024 they’re getting a drop tower and in 2026 they’re planning to get a raft ride.
