    No room for sentiment! What plays into your rankings?

    100% enjoyment for me. "Did I enjoy this more than that?" etc, etc There's some (seemingly) weird **** near the top of my coaster rankings like Temple of the Night Hawk because it's just ridiculously enjoyable; and there's some technically fantastic roller coasters that I think are naff because...

    Yeah that could be a reason. Lewis also seems to be much more mature this year and he's now almost likeable! Yeah @ECG Seb's only problem was always that he was very childish, but now he's grown up he's a true and worthy successor to Michael Schumacher. Hopefully now we're finally seeing...

    Fernando is to race the Indy 500 this year and miss the Monaco GP (Button will probably replace him, he lives in Monaco and is McLaren's reserve driver). Very exciting, I just hope he doesn't get hurt, because Indy is a deathtrap. Re the drivers getting on better, yes it's charming to see, but...

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

    If they were Roller Coaster Tycoon creations, both parks would have been built by people of equally brilliant skill; but the one who built Phantasialand would have a far superior imagination to the one who built Europa Park. And that's why Phantasialand is the one that gets the love in my...

    If Nemesis never existed what would be the UK's #1 coaster?

    This. This would be the somewhat terrifying reality. *shudder*

    Dr Pepper

    Dr. Pepper is nay bad. But it's all about that totally tropical nice drink, Lilt. Makes a great fragrance too. Paco Rabanne for all!

    Somewhere in the Emirates? Brazil?

    The Games we play...

    Ugh. Short answer: **** sake Nintendo Long answer: It's been clear for years Nintendo don't understand anything, but their own continued success and sales blinds them to this fact. Unfortunately, they also own many of the top IPs in gaming. People (myself included) will still have to...

    Alton Towers' Galactica VR coaster/Rollercoaster Restaurant

    Re: Alton Towers' Galactica VR coaster/Rollercoaster Restaur I think it's fab but the throughput was atrocious. Will and I worked out it was between 550-600pph, which is appalling. Ben is right though and by changing procedures they can make it better, although it will be difficult to make it...

    Accident at Alton Towers

    Wow. Just wow. That's so bad. I wouldn't even expect the Sun to post that. That's on the same level as bad as when the BBC led their Jules Bianchi obituary article with the snuff video of his crash! What's happened to the BBC recently? Used to be that as long as they weren't reporting about...

    Best Backyard Coaster?

    Anyone will have to go some to beat the guy who built all the creds at Ai Pioppi. Love the smoke machine though.

    2016 Coaster Tournament Finals

    Hooray! Back where it belongs. Was so gutting last year when all of us in Japan forgot to vote as we were celebrating Jordan & Conor so Skyrush accidentally won. Cheers for organising again. Great stuff!

    Accident at Alton Towers

    But we would win as well. The dreadful Smiler would be no more and valuable Alton real estate would be free. I never though the day would come, but I would rather they have a spinning wild mouse to ride than the Smiler.

    Accident at Alton Towers

    To be honest, I'd be more than happy to see it go. It's more trouble than it's worth and I've got the cred so they can put something else there instead.
