    Wholesale virtual queueing; what are your thoughts?

    Everland has implemented Smart Queueing system since COVID. Rides such as Lost Valley(grass-eating animal safari), Safari World and Panda World are only Virtual Queue. Pros: Prevents unnecessary open-running. When the park opens, Koreans tend to run to the popular rides, which is dangerous. And...

    Rank Your Worst-Run Parks

    IDK why but some Korean parks makes us exercise before dispatching. But the only difference is on 1 train ops ride ops let us do while the station is empty, and 2 train ops we do "Arm stretch" and "Neck stretch" while ride ops pull down lap bar. Still they dispatch every 100~120 seconds. China's...

    Rank Your Worst-Run Parks

    I'd say E World Could you imagine a 8 minute dispatch for Vekoma Boomerang? I don't know the reason why, but they didn't let me pull down my OTSR for 4 minutes after I sit on a front seat. Look at these long line. It was written 30 min wait but ended up an hour wait. Other local parks are...

    Do Inversions "do it" for you or is it meh?

    For me, I prefer inversions that also gives me a pop of airtime. Like Zero G Roll or the final roll of Blue Fire, I like inversion that tries to eject me out of the seat.

    Most Pleasurable Lotte World Busan new opening weekend (Apr.3.2022) As I had tons of expectations of new home park, I got to go there on the 5th day of park opening. As the reservation is required and limited capacity due to it, EVERY ride was a walk-on. So, new park plus walk on means the...

    Favourite coaster inversions?

    A good finale to end a launch coaster. I also experienced that recently, and it floats me in the air roughly 3-4 seconds with the twisty and whippy feeling. Overall Blue Fire felt pretty whippy for me.

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

    Only if the ride is bearable while hands up. If the ride's launch is too quick, or if it has too tight transition, then hands on my lap. But on the 1st ride in my life on any coaster, I tend to hold tight and judge if it's okay to hands up.

    Found 2. Gemstone Dining's sign was also themed to a storyline of Underland. That dining place was storylined for the Underland's miners' eating place. Understanding the story line is very important to enjoy the theming. The axis of that swing ride looks like a gear. Actually that gear is...
