    Why queue for hours?

    Wusses, the lot of ya. ;) In defense of hours-long queues, while it's (obviously) not the standard operation none of us would hope for, there is a certain romance to "saying you were apart of it" when recounting the birth of a brand-new coaster or ride experience. Digging deeper, this might be...

    Cedar Fair Parks Ranked

    Cedar Point - it is America's Roller Coast, and one of the most idyllic spots of roller coasters in the world. Knott's Berry Farm - what I always describe as the "LA local's" theme park, it's small footprint makes for very quaint and endearing design. Big park thrills with small park vibes...

    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    It's a good question @CaliAngel, and to @Smithy's point (I was actually broaching this question with a friend who works in automotive advanced stress testing recently, to "How is it the wheel assembly eats it after 2 days of operation for TT2?"); there is no substitute for real-world cycling and...

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

    I think the "mess" moment @ViperGTS500 is pointing to isn't that TTD was successfully built, but rather the general maintenance and operational upkeep of the coaster. Over the last two decades we've seen a fair share of cable snap, prolonged downtime (often due to sensor array, other ride system...

    I am fresh off of a great vacation trip to Denmark and Sweden (Trip Report to follow!), and glad to report y'all weren't wrong about Helix! Still wrestling with where it fits into the respective Top 10-15; right now have it at the #10 slot: Rank Coaster Park 1 Steel Vengeance Cedar Point...

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

    Another "still working on it" update from Cedar Point for June 4th: There continues to be photos and reports of general working on trains in the infield. #PrayersForTT2 A few thoughts: On how Cedar Fair "Cuts Ties" with Manufacturers: While the enthusiast community has painted a "cutting...

    Coaster lineup: IoA or BGT?

    Agreed with a lot of sentiment; IoA gets the overall nod, even if BGT has the better coaster portfolio.

    Balder at Liseberg - an honest dream come true to ride a coaster you followed progress on so much when it first opened. (During the dark mode days of CF-Info 😝)

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

    Are we talking about Top Thrill Dragster or Top Thrill 2? 😉 We also have more counts of confirmation that wheel assemblies are back on the train and train stock has been rolling. Good progress for 3 weeks in.

    Monster at Grona Lund - it could very well be the perfect roller coaster.

    Six Flags Qiddiya| Saudi Arabia | Theme Park

    In defense of the trim, if it is indeed anything alike Formula Rossa’s ride experience, you will be having too much “Where is your God now?” transitive thought flowing through your meager mind to comprehend the most-likely-not-really-noticeable trim bite.

    Six Flags Qiddiya| Saudi Arabia | Theme Park

    Don’t underestimate OPEC nation sovereign wealth funds; Saudi Arabia has enough cash reserves for multiple economic recessions. To save folks a deep dive of energy policy, price of oil also doesn’t affect much of Saudi’s economic output, in part because they control so much of the market and...
