    Arrow ACE Documentary

    Haven't seen a topic for this yet. ACE recently put out a documentary about the history of Arrow, which is quite an interesting watch. It charts their early years including their work with Disneyland, through the days of their dominance in the coaster industry, and up to their downfall and...

    Alpine Coaster for Snowdonia in 2016

    Surprised no one has posted this yet. Whilst not being the first Alpine Coaster (Stoke Ski Centre had one about 10 years ago) it sounds like the first significant one. If it's anything like the Hasenhorn one, it'll be great as long as some old git doesn't video the whole thing at 3 miles per...

    Theme Park Theme Music

    I've always liked the idea of a theme park having it's own theme music or theme song as you enter the park to get across the notion that you are going away from the drudgery of the real world, and to forge some idenitity of where you are. Simple topic - post your faves. Here's a few that you...

    Creds from your Year of Birth

    Looking back through RCDB the other day, I've found that only 42 creds opened in 1984, my year of birth. Not a standout year for coasters, but I've ridden 9 of them. 88 Train - Children's Grand Park Boomerang - Bellewaerde Camelback Jetcoaster - Himeji Central Park Caterpillar Capers - Camelot...

    Dutch Credding - Part 4: Slag whoring and other whoring

    So earlier this year, I got out of debt for the first time in about 8 years, so I could afford to finally treat myself to some European cred visits. Because I work shifts, it's a bit of a logistical battle to find the time to go away, and go away somewhere when there are theme parks open. So...

    Ian Watkins Pleads Guilty

    Hadn't found a topic for this, but I believes it deserves one of it's own current importance. In case you've been living under a rock, Ian Watkins, the signer of Lostprophets (NOT the singer from Steps) has pleaded guilty to several counts of serious sex offences. It's never nice hearing about...

    Recently, I've noticed my hangovers from a night out taking longer to get rid of themselves, a clear sign that I'm getting older and I'm not fit enough. Last hangover lasted nearly a full 24 hours before I was back on level ground.

    Aimed at the guys and girls who like girls. No moobs. There's something about a stunning pair of legs that really floats my boat (they usually go with a decent derriere as well).

    Halloween in Holland

    Last weekend, Jordan and I went on a quick hop over the channel to visit Walibi World and Toverland. The weekend started at 3am at my aunt's house in North London, where I was staying for the night before our early morning flight. Those of you you did the CF-Euro live will appreciate the...

    Wilde Maus at Hamburgerdom

    Went on this Maurer Sohne Wild Mouse about a week ago at Hamburg Sommerdom. My question is, which showman/company owns it? I'm pretty sure it's not Oscar Bruch or Rudolf Barth, so any help would be appreciated muchly.
