    Dollywood | Big Bear Mountain | Vekoma Family Launched Coaster | 2023

    Looks like a fun ride, and obviously great fit for Dollywood. Was hoping for more of a "thrill" coaster since their last add was a family, but still looks great, and a great excuse for me to go this year (not I need one!) Any rumblings/informed speculations (or even rampant speculations) on when...

    Iron Gwazi: Great ride! I do put it behind SV and Twisted Timbers but just because it doesn't have quite as many elements/the same start to finish unrelenting force, but what is there is brilliant. Great speed & pace, loved the 2nd half is where it picked up more, the rolling drop thing is...

    Cheating a bit but all feel "big" to me so a few of my last lol: Pantheon (#197): Two years of waiting and hype are over! It was fun but, a tad underwhelming honestly :O :( I was expecting a bit more "punch" to it. Was slow over the top hat, though great pull in back, was slow through the wave...

    Are you a "hands in the air" person or a "holding on tight" person when riding?

    Hands in the air mostly. It does depend on the ride, but far more often than not hands up. For the life of me I was unable to keep hands on with Cannibal's first drop. I even tried to force myself....and like instinctively I grabbed for the restraint at least at first. That thing was wild...

    Not enough to make a trip report (partly thanks to my stupid idea of going on a holiday and crowds were insane) but two new creds so: Hagrid's Motorbike: Surprisingly fun! I expected the ride would be OK, and more of an experience but it was shockingly good! Not that fast or crazy but its just...

    SeaWorld Orlando | Ice Breaker | Premier Rides Custom Sky Rocket | 2022

    Nice! I always thought this looked like a fun ride. Obviously isn't Iron Gwazi, Velocicoaster, Pantheon but seems fun and maybe I'm weird but layout does mean a good bit to me and I like this one. Speaking of: .....but we knew this XD Like there's not much to be "sure" about. We already know...

    Indiana Beach I Dreier Looper | Quimera relocation | 2023

    Makes sense, even the "smaller" Schwarzkopf's are bonkers. Which to that point Exactly. Well deff ready to finally hit this place up. Never could justify it though I wanted to try Cornball but now seems right,

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster | 2022

    I wondered if the swing launch was why, and I mean yeah it would make no sense but I saw someone point it out and this is what I get for breaking my rule and listening to people on Youtube XD

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster | 2022

    Ironically I like the layout. I agree I dislike when a layout feels random and like they threw elements all over the place (ironically some RMC's feel this way to me, don't get me wrong doesn't take at all from the ride) but idk I like this one. It feels natural and like it a has a good flow...

    Indiana Beach I Dreier Looper | Quimera relocation | 2023

    Holy hell....and this thing touched 6G's according to RCDB? I never imagined I'd want to go to Indiana Beach!!

    Knotts Berry Farm 2023

    Yeah and Coaster Studios has been pretty accurate with these early analyses. I am inclined to put stock in what he says. As for will this happen, IDK I am skeptical truly. I've been seeing tons of comments that basically reek ok "I/we want this **** people for maybe messing that up!" look I...

    Knotts Berry Farm 2023

    I mean, after hearing about the "Knott's Giga" for what 10 years now? I'd be almost sad for the meme to die, but it would be cool for Knott's To be fair the concerns were always valid: space, noise, possible eye sore (literally its smack in the middle of a city! And yes I would love this sight...

    Fun Spot Atlanta | ArieForce One | RMC IBox Steel Coaster | 2023

    Terrible name for sure, hated it since announcement and the POV they put out is pretty hilarious...saw random person NL renditions that were better than the official POV lol All that said, that stuff is of course meaningless in the end ride does look damn fantastic Edit: oof, shame the dude is...

    Hershey Park vs Six Flags Great Adventure

    Hershey easily. And there is no bias here because Great Adventure was my home park. People think I'm trolling but I always said take El Toro, Nitro, Kingda Ka (I guess for the stats of it...) move em and level the place. I mean it though. Haven't yet ridden Jersey Devil guess maybe that can...

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster | 2022

    Yesssss been waiting for this. Hype is growing! Can't wait to ride this beast. I do agree, I always felt the layout could be longer given how much speed it has. Not sure I'd say it's short, but absolutely wish it had a little more to it. Still, looks fantastic and finally most hyped ride of...

    Parks you can't be arsed with

    I'll pile on Disney lol Great experience for sure I am lucky to have been but tbh I have little care to. I also prefer bigger/more thrill rides and for the $ and hassle (it is kinda stressful tbh) never saw Disney as worth it. Even when I lived in FL for 4 years, if I went to Orlando it was for...
