Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Is it possible to have trains on this style of coaster. It could explain why gerstlauer have implemented a more heavy duty track style for this coaster

Re: Alton Towers - Still No. 1?

No other themepark in the uk has an atmosphere like Alton Towers. I dont really think any other uk park matches up to alton in terms of attractions. I think alton is leagues ahead but if they continue to expand at a snails pace then that will change very quickly. One park i would love to see rival A...

Re: PortAventura 2012: B&M Coaster

Update from PA enthusiast "oriolat2" on CoasterForce: Update (again, these are only rumours): - According to the latest ride description, the ride will be VERY tall (between 75 and 94 meters) becoming Europe's tallest coaster and entering the top 10 of the world's tallest coasters. (I hop...

Six Flags have posted a video of a full test run. http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=586967776734&oid=65853440990&comments It is seriously flying over those hills and the overbank looks insane! I think Six Flags have really got something awesome here. Let's just hope we don't see it ...

Do not change the ultimate! I will despise lwv management for ever if they do any big changes to the ultimate.

Re: Where can you see British theme parks in 2021?

Nearly everyones suggestions for lwv suggest new trains for the ultimate. Are those just suggestions or is this actually going to happen? Im very protective over the ultimate as it was my first large scale coaster :)

Re: Rate Th13teen

Since when did SWs have to be 'big and mean'? I wouldn't say Arrow Pipelines were big and mean, and they were the original SWs before Nemesis. Air is big, not it's not really mean aside from the helix after the fly-to-lie. SW is just a name for big projects that are built in secret and are in some ...

Re: Rate Th13teen

To say its a 5 star ride is going way over the top and i would assume that thats down to new ride hype. Well I voted it a 5 star ride. It's a matter of opinion, you don't think it's 5 star, I do. No one's right or wrong on here. My 5 star rating has got nothing at all to do with hype, I'm not sure ...

Re: Rate Th13teen

Eh how exactly is thirteen a 5 star coaster am i missing something! Id consider it to be a four star at a push but i think 3 stars is definetly deserving to 13.

No it isn't a good coaster...it is an unbe-bloody-leavably good coaster :D It's no Nemesis, but it is still incredible. EDIT: And I have noticed the smell :D Love it :D Really? You'll be saying it's better than the hype next! It's a good family coaster. I'll give it that much. And there is a lot ha...

Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion [SPOILERS TOPIC]

I think coming of this ride and saying its amazing is all down to new ride hype because in a rides first season it is amazing and brilliant but after that peoples opinions change. Yes 13 is a good ride but thats it i think the majority of people on this forum were always going to be dissapointed by ...
