    Most surprising addition to a theme park?

    This is much smaller scale because I don't actively really think about parks abroad and their acquisitions, but a couple years back my local park Linnanmäki got a Heavy Rotation flat ride from Technical Park, which was really weird. A decently obscure flat ride of which only a couple have been...

    Records or claims that never made sense to you?

    Six Flags referring to Raptors as "single rail coasters" despite the trains obviously riding two separate rails that are just connected to a solid box track. Nevermind calling Golden Lasso whatever the first single rail coaster when Caripro (and maybe someone else) had made actual single rail...

    Six Flags Fiesta Texas | Dr. Diabolical's Cliffhanger | B&M Dive Coaster | 2022

    That looks to be the "mini" dive coaster track that they use on the newer European 6-seat per row dive coasters, so I'm going to assume the reason for the 7-seat rows is that was the widest train that the smaller track could support and six flags wanted to squeeze that one seat per row more...

    Do you ever regret becoming a theme park enthusiast? Are there cons to this hobby?

    I don't really regret becoming an enthusiast, of course some people made fun of me when I was younger but that happens to anyone with any kind of interest. However I have made the conscious effort to become less of an enthusiast because of one big con I've noticed among enthusiasts. It seems to...

    Last Cred Review

    Finally went to Power Park (Power Land if we're being specific, stupid naming scheme) this passed week and let me just: Pitt's Special is definitely up there among the list of most pointless coasters (or park acquisitions in general) in the history of ever. Let me go to the positives for a bit...

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

    I've been nervous to ask this because I feel like I've just missed something in the earlier pages but what is up with the name of this ride?? The ride to happiness? Like what's that about

    Are theme parks Capitalist or Socialist?

    By my understanding around 4 million € each season (probably not 2020 for obvious reasons) goes to national charities for children and the rest of the profit goes directly to improving the park which is seen in yearly large scale upgrades and almost yealry ride openings, in comparison to very...

    New rides @ small parks

    Didn't see this posted yet so sorry if it was but shockingly enough it seems Marineland is actually opening a new ride??? Seems to be a lowered capacity Zierer Star Shape

    Gardaland Retracking Shaman

    I don't know why exactly but this retrack track style looks really satisfying to me, it's just so smooth and round and chonky

    Unknown rides outside of parks.

    There's been a random Zamperla Super Spin for around half a decade if memory servers correct on an island right off a northern coastal city called Oulu in Finland called Noitarumpu (Sámi shaman drum), which you can ride during a couple summer months for 6€. I'm not sure if it's still there...

    Surprisingly wet water rides

    Vonkaputous (rest in peace 2001-2017) comes to mind first, it was built at the very edge of Linnanmäki right next to a pedestrian path / road so they had to install a big plexiglass wall on one side of the splashdown, thus leading to half the water splashed outwards bouncing right back onto the...

    PowerPark | Pitts Special | Gerstlauer Infinity | 2020

    Tbf that about makes it worse because Pitt's Special sounds awful pronounced by a Finn who isn't fluent in English.

    Best theme park Toilets

    Linnanmäki also has really nice steampunk themed toilets at the main entrance with even nicer theming, one of my favourites.

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

    Did they remove some of the seats? Was there a weight issue on the ride?

    Somehow thanks to the colour of the track following this thread feels like following Taiga's construction all over again

    First park you’ll be going to

    I mean after all of this realistically the only park I could afford to go to unless miracles happen is Linnanmäki the coming october, but hey, Taiga in the dark, I'm not complaining.
