    IAAPA Expo 2023

    Nobody's bothered to share THE BEST reveal.

    Legend Land - Croatia

    This feels like a college aged thoosie studying web design had a big project to create a website and they ran with a wild pipe dream. I can see a park being built, but I would expect the final product to be more along the lines of a park like the ones that roomraider mentioned, not Balkans...

    The Road to 300: Dorney, Knoebels, Hershey, SFGAdv... and Yeungling!

    I'm just happy that you used the term "parking deck" in your vernacular. Glad to see that I've rubbed off on you 😜

    GhostRider, ELITE CCI or Mid woodie

    Massively overrated. It's eons better now, post-GCI nip-tuck, than it used to be, but it still isn't anything to write home about.

    Holiday World | Good Gravy | Vekoma Family Boomerang | 2024 Adventure City beat Holiday World by a few years. Different manufacturer but in essence the same ride.

    Six Flags Qiddiya| Saudi Arabia | Theme Park

    Not sure where $250m came from considering that the park's GM himself has stated that the Lost Island cost them $100m. Sorry to burst the thoosie bubbles, but this park isn't getting built to draw the most hardcore coaster enthusiasts, nor any sort of international visitor, to Saudi Arabia...

    "American Heartland" Park and Resort in Oklahoma, aiming for 2026 open

    Some more talking points... So maybe they have a small amount of the funding needed for the project but they also don't have a good track record on past projects and certain individuals' backgrounds. Hello London Resort: United States edition?

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

    While Intamin's quality has improved recently, you mentioned three other coasters that have also had their fair share of issues - 305 especially. 305 from the onset was susceptible to melting the coating on its wheels, resulting in sprinklers being added to cool them in the brakes and station...

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

    Considering how much creativity and IP Intamin has "borrowed" recently from other manufacturers (Hot Racer from RMC Raptor, their own version of a Sky Rocket II, their own version of a Mack Powersplash, etc)...why not?

    Six Flags Qiddiya| Saudi Arabia | Theme Park

    *sigh* here we go again. Six Flags Qiddaya and the entire entertainment district that's currently under construction is funded by the Saudi PEF - for all intents and purposes, the Royal Saudi bank account. While there have been plenty of scumbag contractors using new amusement park builds to...

    SeaWorld San Antonio | Catapult Falls | Launched Flume Ride | 2023

    So do we consider this a cred or not? :)

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

    I'm sure it was pointed out already but the last Intamin installation at Cedar Point almost killed eight people, and that was the final straw following a long series of reliability issues on ALL their Intamins. Maybe most everyone now wasn't an enthusiast back then to know about Cedar Point's...

    Came here to say this. Thanks for saving me the work!

    CF Lives 2023... and beyond

    Bummed to hear about this. Since my first in '08, CF Lives evolved and strengthened my enthusiasm and allowed me to make lifelong friends. It wasn't fun learning about the scale back of Lives a couple years ago once the pandemic hit and this is no different. I'm glad that at least stateside we...

    Kings Island | New Adventure Port | Flat Rides | 2023

    This is just a statement of ongoing service. All these companies either have signed contracts to do work with the park currently and/or provide parts or other services to the park. Zamperla, Gravity Group, and GCI are listed along with B&M...all are continuously servicing or improving existing...

    Six Flags Qiddiya| Saudi Arabia | Theme Park

    This. Everyone is so quick to call this project a money laundering scheme while conveniently forgetting or simply not realizing that there is a literal mountain of financial backing behind this project, and I'd think we'd be hard pressed to see anybody try and con the Saudi prince. I'd have to...

    Storyville Gardens theme park coming to Nashville, Tennessee

    It's almost's all vaporware...because they don't yet have funding...and can't purchase rides yet...and that this project has a looooooooong way to go before opening.
