    How do you avoid stapling?

    After a recent failed avoidance of stapling on Raging Bull, I would like to hear how people avoid getting stapled on rides, particularly B&M hypers. It's not hard on RMCs because you can sell it with your legs back, but if your feet don't reach the floor on a B&M then how do you convince them?

    Parkitect Theme Park Sim

    A few days ago, a game called Parkitect was announced on Kickstarter by Vancouver-based indie developers Texel Raptor. The game is in a similar style to RCT 1 and 2 with an isometric view, although the graphics have been (heavily) modernized and composed in almost a cartoon style. Coaster...

    31/7/2014 - SFGAm Mini-PTR

    I went to SFGAm today with a friend. We got there just about as the gates opened into the park, and we walked onto the back row of Viper. There's a good reason why it's my #2 at the park. Its airtime in the back is so intense and extreme, especially in the double-down; it's definitely something...

    Coasters That Have Made Random Jumps in Your Rankings

    The horridly long title explains this topic pretty well. Which coasters have you given a second chance and have, out of nowhere, delivered immensely? (Yay adverbs) For me it's undoubtedly Whizzer at SFGAm. A ride I almost fell asleep on the first time I rode it, I gave it a second go after two...

    Dive Machines/Floorless Coasters

    So I was thinking about floorless coasters and dive coasters today and some questions came across my mind. - When dispatched, is there a separate button in Automatic running mode to lower the floor, or does the dispatch button lower the floor and dispatch the train on its own? - How do...

    Random/Misc. Interesting Facts Thread

    Have any facts that don't fit in another topic or in any specific part of the forum? Chuck 'em here. I'll get the ball rolling: B&M's sit-down coaster design has the least amount of orders from that company with five. All of the stand-ups use B&M's single vertical friction wheel, as found on...

    Weirdest-Shaped Elements

    Some roller coasters contain normal elements (or sometimes new ones altogether) that have been altered in some way that they look funky or altogether wrong. What are some that you can think of? Olympia Looping's first loop comes to mind: Same with Tennessee Tornado:

    Shameless +1 at Zoomers Amusement Park in Fort Myers, FL

    It's spring break, and on my way to Ft. Myers Beach, I spotted a roadside cred, began having a goongasm, and begged my helpless mother to take me to the dump on the way back from the beach. She agreed, and at roughly 3 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, I found myself in the middle of the (5 person)...

    Coasters that you'd love to experience backward

    Reversing the direction of a train on a roller coaster can add a new dimension to the ride. (Nudges X2 as rimshot plays.) It's been a hugely successful endeavor with coasters like American Eagle, Batman: the Ride, and Mindbender (Edmonton Mall), and The Swarm. Here, post some coasters that...

    Rate the Top Ten of the Poster Above You

    Fairly simple topic. Simply give the top ten coaster rating of the person above you a rating and say what you would personally switch around based on your ride experience or ride testimonials that you've previously heard. If you don't have your top 10 in your signature, then simply post it in...

    Kumba v. Wildfire

    Kumba was one of the first B&M coasters built and is often considered to be one of the best ever created. Located at Busch Gardens Tampa on the Floridian peninsula, the ride, whose name means "roar" in the Swahili language of Africa, is renowned for being intense, action-packed, and packed to...

    What is it about Hydra?

    Hydra: The Revenge at Dorney Park seems to get a bad rap from the enthusiast lot, and I've never quite understood why. It has an interesting layout with unique shaping and a one-of-a-kind first element. Of course, I've never ridden it myself and can't testify to the ride experience itself, but...

    Favorite and least favorite manufacturer

    I've done a similar thread with coasters from each company, but here let's rate them on the design firms overall. Favorite: B&M - Crazy consistency, always a smooth ride, and unbelievably comfortable seats/restraints. Least Favorite: Any Chinese knockoff company, like Beijing Shibaolai or...
