Re: Six Flags 2012

Must admit, from the reviews I've read of Skyrush from enthusiasts, it has been massively raved about.  I've seen lots of reviews say that it could well compete with the likes of El Toro, i305, Bizarro, EGF and the megalites for being one of the world's top coasters, and the airtime is meant to...

Re: Efteling: Aquaruna 2012, Hartenhof 2015.

I must admit, I also found Villa Volta to be massively overrated.  The main chamber is beautiful but as you adhere to, not being able to understand the pre-shows was a massive problem.  We seriously didn't have any idea what was going on, and since they seem to last a long while too, it da...

Re: Europa-Park 2012: "Wodan" GCI Woodie + General Discussion

A new vid on the making of the soundtrack has been uploaded by EP.  Sounds pretty epic :D

Re: The Future of the WingRider

They don't look too dissimilar to the new Intamin trains that will be used on Skyrush at Hershey Park.  Although they will be 4 across, there will be 2 standard floored seats and 2 floorless, winged seats per row.

Re: TTF Euro Coaster Poll 2011-12: THE FINAL! VOTE NOW!

Yep, also have a feeling about Katun, I think it might have scored fairly consistently compared to some of the others.  Of course, wouldn't be at all surprised by a Blufi/ Mamba win.

Re: TTF Euro Coaster Poll 2011-12: THE FINAL! VOTE NOW!

Intamin Airtime obsessive is it? :D Lol, you should have seen my original rankings, I actually changed them slightly due to the fact it looked so fanboyish, and to add a bit of variety.  Not that it's too different now though :P I think it's fair to say this is a very strong final.  Admit...

Re: TTF Euro Coaster Poll 2011-12: Semi Final 2: VOTE NOW!

10.  Van Helsing's Factory* - Great ride, lots of fun for it's small size and some really good theming.  Don't think it deserves to go any further than this though. 9.  Dragon Khan* - Good old school B&M, just prefer others in this group. 8.  Megafobia* - Without doubt one of...

Re: TTF Euro Coaster Poll 2011-12: SEMI FINAL 1: VOTE NOW!

Wow, this is getting unbelievably hard.  These are all top class coasters and probably all worthy of making it this far.  Don't have time to write a long post, so in brief, my rankings are; 10. El Toro 9. Twister 8. Raptor 7. Superman 6. Goliath* 5. Fluch Von Novgorod* 4. Blue Fire* 3. Kat...

Re: TTF Euro Coaster Poll 2011-12: Round 2, Group 4: VOTE NOW!

Probably the hardest round for me to vote in yet, mainly due to it including both my 'fanboy' coasters :(  I almost didn't vote at all, so that I wouldn't contribute to their demise :P  Both of their fates already seem to be sealed though, so what the hell... 10.  Daemonen - Nothing t...

Very interesting!  Lets hope that GCI can work the kind of wonders they did with the mighty Boulder Dash :)

Wow, these groups are getting tougher!  This one really took some thinking about. 10.  Poseidon* - Some lovely theming and good final drop, but rough in parts.  No chance in this group I'm afraid. 9.  Kanonen - Looks like one the more interesting accelerators, I'd really like to ...

Re: TTF Euro Coaster Poll 2011-12: ROUND 2, GROUP 2: VOTE NOW!

I too found this a very hard group to rank.  Where as last group I had a clear top 5 and bottom 5, making it easier, in this round I have a definite 1st place and a definite last place but everything in between I rank very closely.  After much deliberation..... 10.  Big Thunder Mounta...

Re: TTF Euro Coaster Poll 2011-12: ROUND 2 GROUP 1: VOTE NOW!

Wow, what a start to Round 2, there are some great coasters here!  There is a big divide between my top 5 and bottom 5, but with only 4 going through it was a tough choice of which one to put 5th.  It certainly helped having rode all of them :) 10.  Crush's Coaster* - Nice theming but...

My favourite childhood ride!  I just knew them as the eggs too, used to absolutely love them, could get some crazy rides.

Re: Strange Rides

DIE GLOCKE! <3  It was actually very good, with fire and water effects.  Just glad it wasn't as busy as in that picture when we were there :P The Roller didn't really do a lot for me if I'm honest, in fact I remember skipping at at Goose 2010, although it was certainly different :) Great t...
