    Your Credit Approach at a New Park

    When it comes to new parks and their credits, which one of these would you say you are? A. I MUST get all the credits if at all possible. I must get them first. Only when I’ve gotten all the credits can I relax and ride other rides or get re-rides. B. I’m really only interested in getting the...

    Jersey Shore, SFA, KD, Dollywood, Carowinds, SFoG, Kennywood, Lakemont

    Not really a trip report, but just quick check-ins, as I just did with the Euro trip. I wasn’t sure I was even going to do this much, but I’m stuck waiting for two hours right now, so I might as well eat some pizza and start a thread. Keansburg Amusement Park said on its website that it opens...

    Your Top Danish Coaster(s)

    What are your top Danish coasters (top 3 or 5 or 10)? Recently I visited most of the major Danish parks (not Legoland), and I think my favorites from the trip aren’t quite the usual suspects — at least not the usual order. 1. Piraten 2. Rutschebanen (Tivoli) — didn’t expect to love this so...

    Hullámvasút status?

    Hullámvasút at Budapest’s Holnemvolt Park is one of the oldest coasters in the world, but it has been SBNO since 2015. Does anyone here know the situation? Are there plans to revive this ride? Or is it a dead relic already? Thanks for any insight.

    Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium

    I've never done a trip report before, and I don't plan on doing a proper one now (with photos and amusing anecdotes and the like). I thought I might do this more as a series of brief check-ins, just to record quick impressions of each park right after the fact. If anyone wants to respond to...

    Acceptable to pressure a reluctant rider?

    You see it all the time at parks, often in line in front of you. Friends debating: “Come on! You’ll love it!” “No.” “Don’t be a wuss!” “No, no, no. No way.” “It’s not even scary.” “It looks terrifying.” “You’re almost on it now, and once it’s over you’ll love it.” “No. I’m getting out of line...

    Kings (or Queens) of Flojector?

    I’ve definitely found that people clearly have differing definitions of flojector, but — whatever it means to you — which coaster(s) in your mind is the best exemplar of great flojector air? For me it would be: 1. Ravine Flyer II 2. Renegade 3. American Thunder 4. Voyage Sure I’m forgetting...

    Hot Go Dreamworld

    I think this may be the least intrusive/disruptive place for me to ask this question? Is there a thread somewhere on the forum — in park construction or elsewhere — devoted to Hot Go Dreamworld? Apologies if I’m blind and missing it, but I can’t seem to find one.

    Biggest park food disappointment?

    Was there a park food that you heard hyped up before your first visit that, once you finally tried it, made you think, “This is what the fuss is about??” I could name a few for myself, but I’ll start with one. I love Kennywood, but for years before I ever went I heard the stories of the great...

    New Houston Amusement Park

    I don’t see this mentioned anywhere on this forum yet, but I’m probably just missing it. (If so, apologies, etc., etc.) Anyway, apparently, at a Travis Scott concert the mayor of Houston just announced that the city is going to be getting a new amusement park. Travis Scott has an album called...

    Your Top Five Coasters in New York State?

    My top five are all small, mostly older woodies. Surprisingly nothing from Darien Lake makes my top five, although I suppose Ride of Steel might be close competition for number five. 1. Silver Comet — Fantasy Island 2. Comet — Great Escape 3. Cyclone — Coney Island 4. Dragon Coaster — Rye...

    Your Favorite Coaster Sign/Entrance

    I’m not talking about the actual queue experience. I’m asking about the outward appearance of the coaster sign or entrance. Which is your favorite? For me there’s an easy winner. You may be familiar with the dragon’s mouth entrance to Dragon Mountain. https://goo.gl/images/NPh5Qb...

    Best place to live for coasters?

    If you had to pick — or triangulate — one place to live on Planet Earth and your ONLY CRITERION was proximity to the most and/or best roller coasters, where would you pick?

    What the hell is that thing on Zippin Pippin?

    There is something on Zippin Pippin that I have never encountered on any coaster before, and both times it happened (I rode the coaster twice), I wasn’t sure what I had just witnessed, even though I was waiting for it the second time. Just after you crest the final hill there is ... a bump? a...

    Queue Behavior — Why do they stop?

    There is something that has intrigued me at amusement parks for many years, and I’m sure I can’t be the only one, so I thought I’d ask for others’ input here. So when you’re waiting in line, the queue is usually corralled or walled in on both sides for most of that line. But then there is that...

    Hardest final brake run slam?

    Some enthusiasts love hitting the final brake run with speed; some don’t. But we can all agree that some coasters stop the train on that final brake run with a sudden force that can be ridiculous. So what coaster comes to mind when you think of sudden, essentially violent stops on that final...

    Blue Streak at Conneaut Lake

    I rode Blue Streak today and my experience on it was beyond anything I’d experienced on any other major coaster, so I had to come on here and ask for others’ impressions. For me: The good: some surprisingly steep drops offered airtime. The bad: At some point during the valleys for the first...

    Unchecking a coaster on coaster-count?

    It used to be that to uncheck a coaster in coaster-count, you just tapped it again, it asked you if you’re sure you want to uncheck, and you clicked yes. Now with new features, when I tap on an already-checked coaster it asks if I want to record a re-ride, and I can no longer figure out how to...
