    What is the worst ghost train you’ve ever ridden?

    Boo! … (Spooky, am I right?) Ghost trains are somewhat of a staple at parks and whilst they might not always deliver on the scares, they’re usually always a welcome attraction at any park we visit. Like other dark rides, they provide a much needed escape from the chaos in motion that coasters...

    Tails of tediousness 14/08/2021

    So… which lacklustre UK park is this week’s TR from? Behind door number 1 we have the stunningly gorgeous, Alton Towers! You can tell she doesn’t quite put the effort in that she used too and can’t handle crowds to save her life, but she’ll give you some of the best rides in the country...

    I just really want to try Speed 07/08/21

    Well... *sigh* it had to be done eventually. Unless Lightwater Valley decides to reopen The Ultimate, to me Oakwood Theme Park is arguably the last park in the UK I needed to visit with intriguing coasters. I like a Eurofighter and a 'decent' woodie so a trip to Oakwood has been on the cards...

    Raging for some creds 23/07/21

    Allow me to set the stage. The year is 2021. International travel is still a massive challenge. Merlin parks are rammed, understaffed and there are reports of general discontent amongst both staff and guests. Paulton’s does little to get the blood flowing and Oakwood… the feedback has been...

    Which elements do you consider to be traditional?

    Tradition. It’s a funny thing isn’t it? From portable flat rides at Alton Towers to cauliflower at Christmas; the line between what is and isn’t traditional exists in a weird space of subjective blurriness. As the coaster community is already very aware (Seeing loads of posts about it even on...

    Ice rooms in theme parks

    It might not be in the right topic for this thread, so feel free to move it if necessary. I seem to remember seeing "ice rooms" featured in some vlogs, but I can't remember for the life of me which parks they were in. Which parks do you know of that have ice rooms? And which is your favourite...

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

    As enthusiasts, we can see where airtime should be. We look at those beautiful hills and hope for violent ejection or blissful floater, satisfying the negative G force addiction many of us have. Often these deliver exactly how we want but also similarly they have the ability to disappoint and be...

    Solo Sweden (May 2019)

    After starting my coaster enthusiasm somewhat officially about a 18 months ago (where I started actually going on dedicated theme park trips abroad) I decided that Sweden was just something I had to do. After getting on Icon (and loving it); the idea of a souped-up Mack Launcher in the form of...

    Speed Dragoz: La Luge Des Carroz

    Hi guys, not totally sure if this is the right place to do this, but I believe I’ve found a new Alpine Coaster! I go skiing for a long weekend with the family one a year and this year we’ve decided to go to Les Marillons in the French Alpes for the second year in a row. One of the ski runs takes...
