    Odyssey wind speed

    Just a heads up, Odyssey is currently down and I think has been for a few weeks now. Was at the park yesterday, the train is sat on the lift hill. I think I read somewhere that the chain had snapped!

    Are the seats on Colossus particularly small?

    Colossus restraints are the worst! When it first opened, it actually had much smaller, less bulky restraints. So much less that some idiots were able to stick their legs out of the cars mid-ride... They then added big metal plates onto the sides of the trains to stop this but they were a trip...

    D’oh! Missed the single rider line?

    I’ve definitely stood in painfully slow single rider lines before that have ended up taking longer than the main queue, bluefire and the boomerang at walibi Holland spring to mind!

    Fantasy Island (UK) | Spinning Racer | Maurer Spinning Coaster | 2021

    I went on August bank holiday weekend in 2019 and the area was packed but ride queues not a problem, so can’t see it ever getting too bad there really. Ice Mountain and the log flume were the only real lines at prob 15 mins max and the Vekomas walk-on.

    Fantasy Island (UK) | Spinning Racer | Maurer Spinning Coaster | 2021

    Yeah they did announce a while back that Ice Mountain was leaving, so most likely will be taking that spot. Interesting to see they have posted this as the first of multiple new attractions too, will see what else they have to offer. Skegness is such a mission but i can’t resist a new cred 😂

    The best park in the world for each major manufacturer?

    For me, the best B&M collection is either Carowinds or BGT. BGT has one of the very best (if not best, is still can’t decide!) inverts, my favourite dive and Kumba is still an incredible coaster. Carowinds mainly for the hyper & giga combo, plus a decent invert. No comment on Vortex 😂 I was...

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    I had a look at the site on Google maps earlier and there’s a load of huge electricity pylons currently there, including the biggest in the UK at 190m (you can see it in the background of the above image). Could this “ foadarche“ be something to do with these perhaps? Trying to disguise the...

    Mopping up UK credits- Great Yarmouth, PWH, Oakwood, Brean, West Midlands and more

    I had a similar experience at Brean last year where the ride op disappeared for his 15 minute break and left everyone stood there in the Crazy Loop queue wondering what was going on. Ended up waiting well over half an hour for that awful ride. Then we got back to the car 10 mins late and...

    CoasterForce's Favourite Roller Coasters - 2020 Edition

    I’ve done 17/25 of these, and would have been 21 if trips to Energylandia, Magic Mountain and PortAventura hadn’t been cancelled this year. I am very intrigued to ride Shambhala, hopefully in 2021, and see if it really is better than Fury 325!

    Plopsaland de Panne | The Ride to Happiness | Mack Xtreme Spinning Coaster | 2021

    I think that means they have changed the opening date from Easter to July. And the hotel has been pushed back to February. That’s a shame as I was planning a trip for May!

    Coaster with the most air miles

    Flamingoland seems to be connected to a few well-travelled coasters... Their other old Schwarzkopf, Bullet, has been from Austria to Florida to England to its current home in Mexico. And the ten looper of course has come via Brazil and Malaysia without completing a single lap yet!

    Gardaland Retracking Shaman

    Judging by that tweet above, the track removed so far is from the helix over the water at the end of the ride. That is one of the most forceful parts of the layout so perhaps that particular area needed replacing due to the amount of wear & tear over the years... if they were taking all the...

    Gardaland Retracking Shaman

    Hopefully it’s not a removal, I thought Shaman was pretty good for its age and surprisingly forceful. Blue Tornado and Sequoia Adventure on the other hand... tear them down!

    Are B&M stagnating?

    A big part of B&M’s ‘stagnation’ in the Western market has got to be the loss of Six Flags as a customer for them. Just had a look on rcdb and they built 25 coasters across their parks, all between 1992-2006 other than X-Flight in 2012. If SF hadn’t had their bankruptcy and change in strategy...

    I made the trek to Cavallino Matto last week and rode Freestyle, the relocated Togo standup from Canada’s Wonderland. It was very intense through the loop and helix, and had some crazy airtime hills as well. The ride and trains especially appear to be in great condition considering it’s now 35...
