    New coaster concepts that you think would be cool

    Hi guys.

    Why have travelling coasters progressed so little, and will we ever see large-scale, custom travelling coasters built again?

    Hi guys. The recent news of Mellors seemingly having purchased a travelling Sky Rocket II for Riyadh Winter Wonderland in Saudi Arabia recently got me thinking about travelling coasters. And it got me thinking; the world of travelling coasters is arguably somewhat stuck in the past compared to...

With the swing launch seemingly being the flavour of the month in launch coaster world at present, as well as shuttle and semi-shuttle coasters increasing in popularity, the number of coasters that go backwards for at least a portion of their layout is ever increasing. So my question to...

    Will we ever see another large-scale 4D coaster?

    Hi guys. 4D coasters seem to have become all the rage as of late, with S&S’ 4D Free Spin model in particular flying off the shelves at the moment. But it’s quite easy to forget that before the era of modern, compact 4D coasters, it was a different type of 4D coaster that started it all; the...

    Can a coaster ever be too smooth?

    Hi guys. Someone over on TowersStreet Talk made an interesting comment about Nemesis earlier today: Admittedly, I imagine that some of you are perplexed as to how this TSTer’s comment is relevant, but it is relevant, because when I read it, it got me thinking; can a coaster ever be too smooth...

    Well... Its fair to say the Skywarp is the inaugural inductee into our theme park hall of shame. But I thought I'd start this discussion to see what ride types everyone else would put into it as well.

    Closest coasters to a “Jack of all trades”?

    Hi guys. I was just watching a POV of VelociCoaster at Islands of Adventure, and I was thinking to myself; it might genuinely be one of the world’s most varied roller coasters in terms of the sensations on offer. And that got me thinking; what are some of the closest coasters out there to a...

    Do you prefer steel roller coasters or wooden roller coasters?

    Hi guys. I know this seems like a very simplistic debate, but I’m surprised we seemingly haven’t got a topic for it, and I thought it might be a fun one to discuss. So my basic question to you is; do you prefer steel roller coasters or wooden roller coasters? Personally, I prefer steel roller...

    Chinese knock-off coasters in United States?

    Chinese ride manufactures have been copying the original designs from other manufactures outside of China and make it their own version of the design what they designed. I’m wondering that what IF there’s a Chinese knock-off coaster being built in the United States. That would be a TROLLING...

    Have you ever had a changing ride on a coaster you’ve ridden before?

    Hi guys. This hobby can be full of surprises when riding coasters; you can quite often find that when riding a brand new coaster for the first time, it delivers in ways you didn’t expect, and really surprises you. But I find that some of the most surprising rides of all can sometimes come from...

    Coasters that you want to like, but don't

    Hi guys. In all the years I've been riding roller coasters and visiting theme parks, I've ridden many different rides, and there have been many rides that I've hotly anticipated riding.

    My Detailed Review of Talon at Dorney Park

    First off, let me say that I'm biased when it comes to this coaster. I first rode Talon nearly 15 years ago at the age of ten, and was my first looping coaster, and I have ridden it more than any coaster. I would estimate somewhere around 1500 rides. Recently I have started traveling around and...
