    I feel like this will go up quick and not be another West Coast Racers.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    I've heard that with the height, the reduced speed allows a shorter brake run. I'd imagine some of it comes down to cost. Also, it allows an extra block section. B&M seems to add double block sections, versus say Intamin and Superman SFNE, where the ending brake run is literally the block...

    IoA | Unknown | Jurassic Park Intamin Blitz

    Why does that make it bad? With new regulations requiring less structure, what's wrong with designing a new track style that's easier and cheaper to manufacture? Maybe it's better in every single way? Remember that with the new international regulations, they require less structure. All the...

    Well, they should start upping the airtime!

    New Jersey | American Dream | Mall/Nickelodeon Theme Park

    I'm dissapointed by those airtime hills, but, the first one was much faster and they were both empty cars, so...

    Neither does Zadra. Some of those pre-lifts are highly enjoyable in my opinion, although it also depends on how fast the coaster is running.

    Yeah, it's a fairly common practice. They do it also on Goliath, New Texas Giant, and I assume others. I assume it's to strengthen the structure while minimizing wood needed. I think a lot of it has to do with minimizing the footprint of the wood, as I don't see any on Outlaw Run, where you...

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster

    Coasters get re painted all the time while standing, what's the big deal? It's probably easier and cheaper this way, versus shipping it to a factory first.

    Dreamworld Australia To Close Tower Of Terror

    I heard once that So Cal Edison had to build an entire new power plant just for Superman. It could've just been a new energy line to the park. Either way, those old school LSMs draw way more power than they do nowadays, so that seems to me like the only reason why they would close it down...

    What a waste of a concept haha.

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster

    Isn't Copperhead Strike's floater? The one at Parc Asterix is designed to pull -1.0 during the backwards section, and -1.2 during the final forwards boost, so hopefully this will be ejector as well.

    But do they then restrict the number of people? That might be worth it.

    I'm still worried about the 4 car trains, but hopefully they will have multiple trains running at a time. It appears as if there is both a load and unload station, so, that should help as well.
