    Portaventura Being Sold Back to Universal? Rumour!

    They wont get a billion for it. It's just highballing it. Universal might as well still be interested but PA try their best to get a higher price. This is just standard negotiation.

    Cedar Point | Top Thrill 2 | Triple Launch Renovation | 2024

    So the coaster will have a fast switch track out of the station. That's great for capacity

    Six Flags Over Georgia | Unknown | Intamin Ultra Surf | 2024

    That's what I was expecting SFOG to get. Pretty surprised that they choose a half pipe.

    Does Disney set different requirements for coaster restraints than other parks?

    I highly doubt Disney take unnecessary safety risks because they have money to have more expensive insurance.

    Liseberg Approved For €100m Grand Curiosa Hotel In 2023

    I was not that bothered by it in person. Would have wished for more exterior theming though.

    Six Flags Great America | Sky Striker | Zamperla Giga Discovery | 2024

    According to Zamperla their Giga Discovery reaches 172'3'' as a max height. A 172 feet SkyScreamer at one of Six Flag's biggest parks sounds pretty meh. A SFGAM ScyScreamer should be taller, at least 200 feet.

    Six Flags Great America | Sky Striker | Zamperla Giga Discovery | 2024

    Liseberg recently replaced a small pendulum with a bigger one. SFGAM could do the same. Or just ship out revolution to a more neglected park. The slogan "take to the skies" and 172 days on strike sound pretty convincing for a giga discovery.

    Dorney Park | Iron Menace | B&M Dive Machine | 2024

    Well, this would a briliant coaster name for Kiruna. A tiny town, far up north, in the middle of nothing. Another Swedish example of being threatened by iron could be our "Iron Pipe Scandal" from 2010. Three high ranking nationalist politicians went out in Stockholm and proceeded to physically...

    Diving show platform collapses at Europa Park

    This specific dive pool was pretty much a bigger splash pool put up in Atlantica's pond. Instead of putting up this temporary structure, they could have build a proper diving pool but of course I guess that was a decision of time and cost.

    Diving show platform collapses at Europa Park

    Oh God. The diver jumped inte way too shallow water for that height, hope she is alright. Good that Atlantica didnt dispatch a boat at this exact moment. That could have gone really bad. Hope that ll the riders in the earlier boat are alright.

    Dorney Park | Iron Menace | B&M Dive Machine | 2024

    The coaster seems pretty good, a great addition for a usually neglected park. I just cant get over the name. I am really getting tired of these totally meaningless names. Wtf is "iron menace"? Can iron be menacing? Maybe. Does anyone feel threatened by iron? No. Same case with "steel...

    Europa Park | Voltron | Mack Rides Stryker Coaster | 2024

    It's one of these discussions. A moral dilemma of riding a roller coaster that was previously themed to Iceland and gas extraction sponsored by a Russian energy company in a topic about a Nikola Tesla themed roller coaster sponsored by a Croatian supercar manufacturer. Then sprinkle in some...

    Do you prefer starter or dessert in a restaurant?

    I would prefer an aperitif or digestif. For aperitif I prefer something strong such as vodka, whiskey or cognac. If it's a fino sherry or a dry madeira that I like I might also take that here. For digestifs I prefer something sweet, cream or olorosu sherry, port or a stronger cocktail. If I have...

    Energylandia | Unknown | Vekoma Tilt Coaster | 2024

    Is the carp museum for subsidies? I doubt EL would fully out of pocket fund a carp museum, it just does not sound profitable. Maybe a carp restaurant but not a full blown carp museum. But, if the government paid some part of it I think EL would be more than happy to build a carp museum.

    Six Flags Great Adventure 2024 - 50th Anniversary Coaster and More

    As you said, Gröna Lund is all speculation but they did get rezoning they requested and are allowed to build amusement rides on the plot. The full planning map is too big but this is what they will build. You can see the heights of the buildings as well as the ride top heights they are allowed...

    "Now Showing"

    Red, White & Royal Blue 5/10 A friend best described it as a hallmark light comedy, that's really what this movie is. It was enjoyable, sometimes funny but overall very bland. I am starting to get tired of all these stories with a queer outing as the main plot especially when nothing else in...

    Energylandia | Choco Chip Creek | Vekoma Minetrain | 2024

    That building construction site is not visible for guests in the area and can easily be worked on while the area is open. The dragon poos seem to be left similarly to how Aqualantis theming was during the first year. No work seems to be going on with it. From first hand experience the area looks...
