    Warner Bros Movie World to Remove Arkham Asylum

    Let's take a moment to realise the park said their SLC was "one of the country's best rollercoasters". Sure, Jan. Good riddance! If the footprint is anything to take into consideration, I guess they will have to go for something really compact. My bets are on an RMC Raptor. Australian parks...

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    Good to read! Although the park doesn't get extremely high attendance numbers, it's always nice to see a B&M with a good capacity. I wonder if Gröna Lund is actually going to need running both trains many times. I mean, besides Jetline, their coasters do not have that high of a capacity yet...

    SFGAdv | Jersey Devil Coaster | RMC Raptor | 2021

    That is great news, indeed. If they can have an efficient crew like Nitro they will nail the maximum hourly capacity. Jersey Devil is the one coaster I am really excited about! I just love these Raptors popping all over the place!

    Major Expansion Announced for Tokyo DisneySea

    In fact, I think it is a lot fairer. After all, no pain, no gain! The expansion plot is huge. I can't wait to see what jaw-dropping attractions they have in store.

    Silverwood | Stunt Pilot | RMC Raptor | 2021

    Wasn't there another Raptor planned for a park right in the middle of nowhere in the USA? If anything I think Stunt Pilot would be from that park.

    SFGAdv | Jersey Devil Coaster | RMC Raptor | 2021

    Does that mean they are aiming for 2021 or are they going to pull a SFOT and hold this coaster until 2022?

    Can a Mack Powersplash be run without water?

    I am sure Mack have actually thought of worst-case scenarios. As VonRolland says, the ride is a shuttle coaster, so if the flooding section didn't work properly, then I guess the LSMs would just engage acting as brakes to bring the train to a stop. I was also under the impression that Sheikra...

    Hotgo Park | Unknown | B&M Wing Coaster & B&M Hyper Coaster | :-(

    Why bother? The hyper is basically Shambhala with a different ending and no MCBR.

    Fuji-Q Announces Major New Coaster for 2022!

    Every 10 minutes? xD Have you been there? It's like Six Flag had to much sake and decided to open a park in Japan. Jokes aside, this is a great addition and a great and odd way to use current space in a clever way. Wusses will be taking pictures while we enjoy being surrounded by coaster track...

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

    Wicked Cyclone (SFNE): towards the end before the last barrel roll there is a weird s-shaped transition with a sudden airtime jolt that took me completely by surprise. Goliath (Walibi Holland): I am still fascinated by the sideway airtime found on the Stengel Dive. It's so fabulous and elegant...

    Indiana Beach I Dreier Looper | Quimera relocation | 2021

    I thought they had sent Dreier Looping track pieces over to Germany for an extensive refurb before sending them to Indiana Beach. Do you reckon they'll run its original trains or will they get new ones from Gerstlauer?

    SFOT | Aquaman: Power Wave | Mack Power Splash | 2022

    *West Coast Racers joined the chat* As for the website saying "goes upside down" it could well refer to the fact that one of the spikes goes beyond 90° (I think) or SF being SF pulling marketing crap the only way they can do it.

    Fantastic old coaster footage/pics

    And how many trains would this monster have added to the already 5? In fact, do we think a Schwarzkopf train would have been able to navigate a zeroG (smoothly)?

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    Well, I have ridden both and I can guarantee Helix' roll doesn't hold a candle against Baco's or even Bluefire's...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    PortAventura have stated on their official social media that they won't reopen for the reminder of the season. So, kids, no Shambhala until March 2021 I am afraid.

    Energylandia | Unknown | Vekoma Minetrain | 2021

    Damn, this has to be the longest RCT gameplay in history. What's this scenario goal? Build 20 coasters from Vekoma's catalogue?

    Fantastic old coaster footage/pics

    This footage is extremely rare as it shows what was a short-lived amusement park on one of the hills surrounding Barcelona: Casino de l'Arrabassada. It coexisted with Tibidabo until Casino was deemed unprofitable and closed down. In that video you can see two iconic rides: a shoot-the-chutes and...
