    Rollercoasters and Robot Wars

    I used to love Robot Wars, it's a shame the BBC revival was canceled, but robot combat is still going strong in the USA with a new series of BattleBots currently about 7 episodes in. Some british teams compete there too, for example, heres a clip of warhead, a bot from the same team that built...

    What is the most surprising airtime moment you’ve experienced in your enthusiast career?

    Almost forgot, the surprise airtime from the back seat of skull mountain at six flags Great adventure! It's good enough to start it's own cult.

    What is the most surprising airtime moment you’ve experienced in your enthusiast career?

    The back seat of superman at parque Warner Madrid comes to mind, no other seat on the ride does it, but that first drop in the back is really something amazing.

    What is your favourite use of special effects on an attraction?

    Another one worth mentioning is mystery lodge at know berry farm, the way out mixers live action with peppers ghost effects is brilliantly done and some of the transitions still puzzle me.

    What would be your dream theme in a theme park?

    You missed a trick there Serena, surely the first launch should just say Fus, the second should do Fus Ro, and the third should be Fus Ro Da with all three words of power! There should also be a drop tower themed to a Skyrim horse climbing a vertical cliff.

    What would be your dream theme in a theme park?

    When I visited tussenfryd last year they were actually playing the soundtrack from Skyrim at the gate as I left!

    New Merlin "Annual pass"

    I've never been that tempted by the Merlin passes, if they included their European parks there's a good chance I'd get one at some point, even if it was a park only pass and didn't include the sea life etc stuff.

    What is your favourite use of special effects on an attraction?

    I was always quite impressed by the use of lasers in Mystic Manor, especialy how they make them apear as if they were a point of light in space rather than just a dot on a wall. It's hard to show up in a video but you can kind of see it here

    Indiana Beach I Dreier Looper | Quimera relocation | 2021

    It's a shame to see it go, when I rode I was a little disappointed as it lacked the airtime I expected, but with some retracking to speed it up, it could probably of been awesome. I came so close to being half spited by it as I had a plane to catch and they only ran one side at at time, which is...

    Coaster with the most air miles

    Teststreche has been around a bit, though it's a bit blurry with it's stints on the funfair circuit. According to rcdb it started out at Sao Paulo, then moved to Dorney park and had a good while at Prater in Vienna before it's most recent residence in Saudi Arabia.

    Indiana Beach I Dreier Looper | Quimera relocation | 2021

    I wonder how it will run compared to how it ran at la feria, it was insanely fast and forceful when I rode, but that was probably with it operating beyond the safe limits. Hopefully it won't end up too neutered with trims and brakes when it reopens.

    Could we ever see real coaster enthusiast shorts?

    At holiday park the ride ops on expedition geforce have shorts with zipped pockets and the egf branding/logo. Why they don't sell these in the gift shop is a mystery to me as they would be the ultimate goon shorts! Another key is for the pockets to be just above knee height so that your stuff...

    Lightning Rod Status

    It's quite interesting, moreso than any of the other RMC woodies, lightning rod maintained the "feel" of a wooden coaster. Wildfire, outlaw run and Goliath felt very similar to hybrids, but lightning rod still felt like it had the essence of a wooden coaster. Maybe it's the flex in the track and...

    Gardaland Retracking Shaman

    Maybe we'll finally get a version of the python plus concept! Shaman is pretty much the same layout after all!

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster | 2020

    Given that there's been a few rollbacks, I wonder whether they may have tweaked the second launch to reduce the top speed and subsequently the gforce you experience after
