    New Premier track at Intermountain Lift

    Ahh, just what I imagined winter in Riyadh to look like.

    Thorpe Park 2024?

    It's interesting speculation, at least! Most pessimistic outcome: Another retheme of X, using wood sourced from behind Old Town for decoration.

    Fårup Sommerland | Fønix | Vekoma | 2022

    I think it's fairly easy to tell that this will be the best new coaster in Europe for 2022. Granted, that's partially because there's squat all for competition. 2022 will really be a pretty horrid year for coasters in Europe.

    Injury on X-2 at Six Flags Magic Mountain

    Judging by all the others, not really. Most of the spambots walk right into the traps, and the ones that make it to registration are usually really easy to tell apart from legitimate users.

    Injury on X-2 at Six Flags Magic Mountain

    It's fairly easy to check their IPs, and all the single-post users in this thread seem to be independent of each other. Gotta love how jjjones has simply replied "none" to the "Fave parks and coasters" profile questions when signing up, though. At least the others pretended to have found a...

    Injury on X-2 at Six Flags Magic Mountain

    Gotta love the prescience of the OP, though. Putting "Maximum Force" as their favourite coaster five years before Maxx Force even opened. I presume the spelling difference is just a matter of branching timelines or something like that.

    Chengdu Aviation park | China | 2019

    There goes another one. Quite a lot of pins pulled these days, but it's good to have done some cleanup of this subforum! Thanks for your numerous contributions!

    Strongest theming on a mega/hyper, giga or strata coaster?

    At a height of 34.1 meters, Expedition Everest technically qualifies as a mega coaster. I think that's the answer to the thread title.

    The Return of Nemesis Sub Terra?

    I'm going to guess it's something much more mundane: That the uniforms were packed away in some storage room after Sub-Terra closed, and somebody found them there when looking for Scarefest costumes to use this year.

    Thorpe Park 2024?

    Big missed opportunity. If they really wanted to scare fans, they'd have the poster announce a Wacky Worm or second-hand Reverchon Spinner for 2023.

    Thorpe Park 2024?

    I'd say Fantasy Island might qualify because of that time in 2002 they built one of the biggest Inverted coasters in the world right out of nowhere. ... granted, it wasn't followed up by anything more than an assortment of Reverchon spinners and Wacky Worms (usually the very same rides...

    Thorpe Park 2024?

    Wing or Invert Psycoaster Technological Horror Experience, thank you very much.

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    Nah, Wonderland Eurasia was huge. Energylandia is too. London Resort, if it happens, will probably be a cinema, two escape rooms, and a Nando's.

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    If I'm reading the article correctly, nothing has been signed yet. Not even a memorandum of understanding, which, until now, I had considered to be the lowest rung of the contract ladder. Companies have merely registered their interest to participate in the project, and the project has contacted...

    Thorpe Park 2024?

    I would also like to see a Hyper at Thorpe, but I'm not sure if I trust Merlin to fork out the mountain of cash necessary for a coaster that size. Not sure how much land and air space is available either. Also, given Merlin's history of "inflating" a ride's thrill level through themeing, would...

    How many different number 1s have you had?

    If more than ten minutes went into the creative process of that name, I'll eat my hat.

    Thorpe Park 2024?

    Wicker Man appears to have a height difference of 22 m, a length of less than 800 m, and barely hits 70 kph. It may be large-ish, but for a thrill coaster it's somewhat puny. It's way smaller (albeit a bit longer) than a Mega-Lite, for instance. Merlin seems to have decided that they don't have...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Could it simply be because "Europa" is the word for Europe in many languages, and many cities have a "Europe park" somewhere? A lot of similar searches for local city parks could add up. It would be like the Hilton hotel chain revealing that their most searched-for hotel is the one in Paris...
