    First park you’ll be going to

    I'm at school in Boston, so hopefully SFNE. If not, probably SFGAm, Indiana Beach, or Holiday World.

    Do you value theming or ride hardware more in a theme park?

    Just look at my top ten for evidence that good theming can very much place a ride (and therefore a park) in a higher stratosphere than that same ride in a vacuum. Same goes for parks.

    Rank your Ridden B&M Inverts

    Not a whole lot to rank here... 1. OzIris: Such a fun ride. Smooth, great variety of elements, fun theme, all around just a good experience. 2. Batman: No pun intended, bat**** crazy. So intense. I wish the layout had more variety, but this ride holds up really well. 3. Dragon Challenge...

    Your longest theme park hiatus?

    Due to outside circumstances I didn't get to a park nearly at all last year (hence my disappearance from CF), so I'm well on track to go two whole years without a theme park!

    Parc Asterix | Tonnerre 2 Zeus | Tonnerre de Zeus renovation | 2022

    Good thing it's getting retracked. It has a good layout but was thoroughly Just OK when I rode it in 2018.

    Will we ever see another huge 4D Coaster?

    I mean, with the crazy oligarch money being funnelled into some theme parks in the East, you never know. But outside of that, I consider it highly unlikely, especially since I'm not even sure that S&S offers it anymore now that they have the FreeSpin, which is designed to be scaleable.

    What is your favourite drop tower?

    I've been on very few, but it's hard for me to see anything ever beating Tower of Terror.

    Is RMC Raptor a bust?

    The potential for this ride type is huge, but I honestly think that was Six Flags' thought process here. Call it a record-breaker and make it look cooler than it would if it were a wooden layout. Jersey Devil would be ****ing fantastic as a woodie, btw.

    Six Flags 2020 Announcements

    That Raptor looks in-****ing-sane and I'm excited that Mack PowerSplashes are coming stateside. The rest is wholly unsurprising and unremarkable, aside from the hilarious Green Lantern relocation.

    Warner Bros. Movie World AU | DC Rivals HyperCoaster | Mack

    Braking systems on most modern coasters (MACKs included) are based on permanent magnets, basically like an LSM. You're thinking of LIMs, which are given a magnetic field through pulses of electricity to the metal plates (hence why LSMs can be used as brakes while LIMs cannot). For a comparison...

    Your Biggest Coaster Surprise?

    I was just at the park a few days ago. The ride is so insanely incredible backwards. An actual WTF experience.

    Rank the B&M Wing Coasters

    Just rode it in the front shortly after writing that. It's better, but not fantastic. It's a ride that requires a strategy to be comfortable. So it's not a comfortable ride.

    Rank the B&M Wing Coasters

    X-Flight is slowly becoming awful. Awful rattle/jackhammer and the vests suffocate you on the brake run.

    Underrated Family Coasters

    Whizzer is my one true love, and Space Mountain is amazing as well.

    The Original and Best

    I mean, I think Outlaw run is ever so slightly, just barely, marginally better than Goliath.

    California's Great America | Railblazer | RMC Raptor

    Okay my suspicions about capacity are still there but this looks so much better than Wonder Woman. The scenery and color scheme are lovely.
