    CF Lives 2022 - What's Happening

    Thanks for the the update. As fab as the overseas lives have been, I think it’s a totally understandable position to take for this year with the ongoing uncertainty. The U.K. lives seem good, particularly Alton in March.

    Who is the best big park chain operator?

    Herschend gets my vote as they have donning really well with Dollywood and SDC, both having an excellent line up, operations, shows, theming and staff. The whole package. I think it will be interesting to see what they do with Kentucky Kingdom, hopefully it gets treated like a Dollywood and...

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    Apparently Sweden’s public health authority are saying the current restrictions will be in effect for another year at least... this might become a 2022 Coaster.

    The best European Annual Pass

    I’d second the Bobbejaanland/ Slagharen/Belantis as the best passes for Parques Reunidos. I haven’t checked every single park, but most seem to offer the one time entry to the others, however the Madrid parks charge 3 times as much for the equivalent and Mirabilandia is about double. I’m...

    Your worst spite

    Not sure if it counts as a spite, but I booked a trip to KD to finally get round to riding Volcano which had been on my bucket list since the beginning of time. A couple of weeks after booking my flights and they announced its permanent closure! At least I got to see it in it’s semi dismantled...

    Added another wacky worm which brings my total to 28/ 4.14%. I need to get back to going to decent parks!

    WTF Merlin?

    Thorpe is managed the way it is because at the end of the day Merlin is a business out to make money. Legoland 30 mins down the road does an excellent job bringing in the family money to Merlin. Chessington is another Merlin family park less than 30 mins away, so if Thorpe also went down the...

    Strawberry Daiquiris are the best. Near version is boring, much better with crushed ice!

    Best ever IAAPA reveals

    The Intamin Benelux announcement is the real stand out for me.

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

    When we were planning we hadn’t spoken about doing it as a cred Run, but having seen a couple of vlogs I thought it looked nice and I was not disappointed. Really glad we did t cred run it. Sure the rides are all kiddy coasters, but you can tell the park is well looked after, and between the...

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

    This was actually a really fab trip! I was in the area just last year with the cf live but between hearing the Schwarzkoft at PWH had reopened, a spite at PB, adults being allowed to Pettitts and a cheeky +1 decided there was more than enough to justify a repeat visit! First stop was Joyland...

    Your Wacky Worm Count.

    Does anyone rank their Wacky Worms? My favourite is the one at Southport, it dooms the same as all the others in the RCDB photos, but I swear it’s bigger! Had some decent airtime on the drop! The classification breakdown wasn’t as detailed as I hoped, but I went into classification breakdown...

    A quick look on Coaster count suggests 27, I’m quite surprised it’s not more!

    Manufacturers With the Most/Least Reliable Rides

    I worked: Raptor at Cedar Point - B&M, often had downtime due to the sensors in the moving floor getting dirty, which was easily fixed with a reset. Sometimes had more serious downtime which would take between hours and days to fix. Do-Whopper at Moreys Piers - Zamperla - Wild Mouse style...

    Manufacturers With the Most/Least Reliable Rides

    I think some of the criticism of “unreliable” manufactuers is a bit unfair. Sure everyone would love nice readable rides with 100% uptime, but RMC and Intamin have been very innovative and it’s not that surprising that prototype technology is more likely to have technical issues than the 100th...

    A park with the best and worst coaster in one!

    I was thinking either Carowinds with Fury 325 and Nighthawk or Canada’s Wonderland with Leviathan and Time Warp were the most extreme I could think of, but now @Matt N has mentioned it, totally agree with Port Aventura! When the new Intamin Mega opens at Walibi Belgium that'll be quite a...
