    Gatorcoaster (Velocicoaster Inspo)

    Awesome work @Scott Lannigan. Great detailing and the coaster looks very smooth, which is even more impressive using planet coaster! I have downloaded dinosaur tmk on steam, but they don't look great close, but it's something if you really want them, but it looks fantastic as it is. Sent from...

    Wicker Man vs Megafobia

    I haven't been on Megafobia since 2009 so my memory is faded. From what I remember at the time I thought it was well paced and was far smoother than the Blackpool woodies, it's a good coaster, but it didn't blow me away or anything, I preferred Speed which surprised me. I don't remember loads...

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach - April 20th 2021

    Part 2 The park now sells nanocoaster model sets for The Big One and Icon. Couldn't think of a way to end the report so here's the flying machines. I hope to get back to Alton Towers this year and maybe Thorpe Park as I haven't been since 2016. Hopefully I might even get to Poland after last...

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach - April 20th 2021

    As you can imagine, like most people here on this site I was itching to get back to the parks. Despite my initial excitement after seeing pictures of the heaving crowds of last weekend, I became pessimistic about my chances of having a good day back to my home park. I got to the park and I was...

    Coaster hair?

    Today's Coaster hair Would be far worse if I hadn't just got my hair cut. Sent from my SM-A217F using Tapatalk

    Coaster hair?

    Oh yeah I get it, usually because I don't get my haircut as often as I should, Oblivion is one that I always come off looking like a mad scientist. Sent from my SM-A217F using Tapatalk

    Alton Towers vs Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    Alton Towers for me, it gives you that theme park feeling, probably the closest thing to a UK Disneyland. I love how all the rides are hidden in the trees, gives me an exploration feel as I turn corners to see coasters right in front of me. Plus there is far more investment here Blackpool...

    Alton Towers Recreation

    For Thirteen I used the S.L.V coaster, I was going to swap out the trains for the Intamin giga ones, but I think the game didn't give me that option so I just went with the original trains. For the drop track I built a steep 180 dive and a helix underground with a super sharp turn back to the...

    Make fun of my favorite roller coaster.

    It's called skyrush, yet it's not a launch coaster and most of the ride is low to the ground. The person who designed the station just gave up in making it anyway efficient and it's basically like Hersheypark's underachieving and problemed child, while Candymonium is the kid who's going to...

    Chessington World Of Adventures | Croc Drop | Zamperla Sky (Drop) Tower

    :eek:I don't think I have ever seen a drop tower with a three hour wait, part of me thinks the park might be exaggerating to sell fast tracks. The ride looks awesome in it's presentation, but only 8 riders per cycle is ridiculous for a park with Chessington's attendance, somewhere Warldey is...

    Alton Towers Recreation

    With the parks being closed during Lockdown 3 I decided to finally get round to making a recreation in Planet Coaster. In the days when RCT3 was king, I used to do almost nothing but real life parks, but for some reason or another I find them more difficult to do in planet coaster, whether it's...

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    I am hyped for this! Seems to have old school snappiness with the grace of newer B&M, it's even more impressive how fast it seems with all the buildings you fly-by. In terms of appearance, the ride isn't quite done yet, but I am surprised about people complaining about the lack of theming, the...

    Notable Losses Since 2001

    I loved reading this! I never even knew that Gebirgsbahn existed, but best believe I am doing my research now 🤓 For me personally, Corkscrew at Flamingo Land felt like a bigger loss back in 2011, while I get that the Alton Towers version is more important and iconic, the fact that we had a...

    Music Recommendations

    If anyone is into Hardcore/metalcore I'd recommend the bands Knocked Loose and Gideon. Knocked Loose have some sick breakdowns and have been playing with some death and groove metal influences recently. I've also been listening to kittie recently, I love Nu Metal and they play the more heavy...

    "Now Showing"

    Melancholia is a beautiful film, I was worried that I'd find Kirsten Dunst character annoying, but Trier does a great job at having the audience sympathise with her. I don't think I'd sit through it again anytime soon though, Trier's films aren't exactly relaxing Sent from my SM-A217F using...

    "Now Showing"

    I Care A Lot: Rosamund Pike gives a strong performance and the film has interesting things to say about some of the immoral aspects capitalism, the film is entertaining and is well paced, Peter Dinklage pulls of his role well, balancing the line of playing it straight while also having fun with...

    Slowest and fastest coaster braking systems?

    In terms of sudden brakes I think of Shockwave at Drayton Manor. On the other note B&M Giga coasters do have trains that go quickly though their first break run, mostly to aid faster dispatches. ElToroRyan did a great video explaining why on the subject.
