    What are your favorite “clone/basic” coaster models?

    B&M's Batman clones and Giant Inverted Boomerangs (just wish they made the Giant Inverted Boomerang in a non-crisscross layout)

    Gerstlauer space diver?

    Does anyone think the layout of Flashback @ 6FMM would make a good Gerstlauer Infinity coaster? I currently have my own take on a Space Diver (that features actual inversions, 7 dive drops and one Immelman) in my Planet Coaster park that is built as a Gerstlauer Infinity. If anyone wants to see...

    Width of a track section?

    I'm pretty sure Arrow's track design is a secret that's pretty tightly guarded.

    Rank Togo’s operating and defunct roller coaster

    Same here! Just wish it was faster going up to the top. The reversing, lift hill transfer, and lift hill itself really need to be faster.

    Rank the Arrow loopers

    I guess I'm also one of the few that wishes Steel Phantom was still around in its original form. They should have had Vekoma re-track the ride and give it new trains with newer restraints, though I'm not too sure about what their trains were like in the early 2000's compared to now.

    Tracking Your Children at Park

    Why not wake up and realise that you, the parent or guardian, are the one responsible for your the children? This brings back very convoluted memories about threads in the r/unpopularopinion Sub-Reddit on Reddit where parents attempt to justify tracking their children at all times. Once they...

    Smiler's inversions

    In contrast to what RCDB has listed, here's my take on the inversions that Alton Towers' Smiler has: Heartline Roll Corkscrew Cuban 8 Batwing Corkscrew Corkscrew Sea Serpent Cobra Roll Heartline Roll Heartline Roll Apparently no one has noticed that the back-to-back Immelmans at the...

    GCI / Gravity Group Hybrids?

    So GCI just showed up at an ACE meetup at Fun Spot Orlando and revealed this track with no additional information. Let the speculation begin!

    Boomerang / Shuttle Coaster with LIM lift hills

    Feel like a modern Boomerang could have LIM lift hills, since the reliability of linear motors has greatly improved over the years. Don't forget that LSM's act like magnetic brakes when not powered. Though we have yet to see Vekoma actually make a LIM/LSM powered shuttle coaster. The Family...

    What was your first coaster with an inversion?

    Cedar Point's Corkscrew. It actually wasn't rough like some people said, I remember some rough spots where there was a little headbanging but it wasn't over the top.

    Boomerang / Shuttle Coaster with LIM lift hills

    There are some Chinese companies who have copied the Boomerang. I've seen worse - knockoff SLC's and knockoff Arrow LoopScrews, all with track types that were clearly stolen from Arrow/Vekoma. Here's a knockoff SLC in Beijing.
