    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    I think the double helix in the second half is one of the best parts. Starting with a stall and followed by two airtime moments (wave turn & outward bank) it is an incredible sequence and way better than I expected after the blueprints got leaked 2 years ago.

    World's Loudest Coaster?

    Nessie at Hansa Park. The coaster itself isn't particularly loud, but while riding ist is almost unbearable when entering the tunnel with the enclosed brake run. It isn't the coaster itself that is very noisy, but the small tunnel maximizes it to a level where you think you become deaf.

    Hixee’s guide to a Roller Coaster Construction Thread

    Especially in the newer construction threads, discussion about a RMC Raptor or T-Rex can't be forgotten, especially when it is followed by a debate if the T-Rex will ever happen. Also, quite often the layout is leaked (looking at you VelociCoaster & Orion, wherever the information came from)...

    Warner Bros Movie World to Remove Arkham Asylum

    Given the fact that they really like to change up the manufacturer, RMC wouldn't be unlikely. Some of the only other big manufactures they haven't tried out yet are Premier Rides, Gerstlauer and GCI. Vekoma -> Road Runner Roller Coaster Mack Rides -> Scooby-Doo Intamin -> Superman Escape S&S ->...

    If you could put any roller coaster in your home park, what would it be and where would it go?

    My home park is Taunus Wunderland. Most probably haven't heard of the small family park, it has a mack log flume, a wild mouse and a SBFVisa compact spinner with the best name "Kuhddel Muuuhddel", it is located near Frankfurt in Germany. Talked to the park CEO during Halloween 2020 and a huge...

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

    Quite a few that came to my mind: -Heiße Fahrt at Freizeitpark Klotten It is by far the best Bobsled Coaster Gerstlauer has built in my opinion. The 2 Twisted Airtime Hills after the Helix provide solid ejector airtime and the bunny hops at the end have floater. -Revenge of the Mummy at...

    What would be your dream theme in a theme park?

    I would like to see a land based on the Percy Jackson / Heroes of the Olympians franchise. Even though the movies were a terrible adaption, a Disney+ show is currently in production. I think the books are already a great source material and if the show is done right, it <could> reach in Harry...

    Energylandia | Choco Chip Creek | Vekoma Minetrain | 2021

    In the tender the park released in 2017? a mine train with at least 3 lift hills was wanted. Its the same document that talked about the Hyper Hybrid Coaster and a Multi-Launch Coaster, so it's quite likely that the stats of the mine train turn out to be right as well.

    Orlando, Atlantic City, etc. Skyscrapers | ThrillCorp

    Quoting the PDF: "Construction on park to begin in in Q1 2021 and is projected to open in Q3 2024" I will only believe it as soon as construction starts.

    That’s the turn after the brakes before entering the station. The look of the operators must have incredible ?

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster | 2020

    Around 20-35 min after the initial opening of the area (Kaiserplatz -> entrance) (Can’t give exact numbers because we directly went to the entrance after opening). It went down to about 5 min in the afternoon (Wintergarten -> entrance). The wait time was consistent over the day. But to be fair...

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster | 2020

    Wait was between 20 and 45 min today (entrance to station), not bad at all for a new coaster. (Especially compared to Tarons opening year) First three rides were almost walk-on. Furthermore, they opened Rookburgh earlier today (around 10:20 am) in comparison to Thursday and Friday (around 12).

    PowerPark | Pitts Special | Gerstlauer Infinity | 2020

    Been to PowerPark on Saturday and had a couple of laps on Pitts Special. First, the ride has better airtime than expected. The wave turn, the drop as well as all the smaller hills provide solid ejector airtime. The twisted airtime hills are alright with some floater but are definitely too big...
