Re: Heide Park's new B&M Wing Coaster

I must say the trains look very "swarm-esque" with the shell faces looking exactly like the swarm, just a lot posher and brighter!

2013. How was your year?

Since 2013 is steadily drawing to a close. I thought we should compile a list of great and amazing moments that you remember well. Mine is the last day of my middle school. Remembering all the great times we had together as friends at that school and aspiring for the future. Also Fright nights at Th...

Re: How to ride Oblivion

Look up instead of down and arms and legs spread out. Sit on the edge of the car too. :) I don't suggest anyone does that as that's how whiplash injuries can happen on drop coasters. You're forced into the back of the chair as your neck is slammed down. Didn't explain well, look up like you are loo...

Keep the restraint as relaxed as possible. Look up instead of down and arms and legs spread out. Sit on the edge of the car too. :) It feels amazing. Especially first ride of the day.

Re: Is this the end of Slammer?

Well at least I rode it once, on FN last year. In the dark! Probably one of the last people to ride it in the dark. :( Me and my friends nicknamed it the vomitator. :P

Yup, most trak has to be bent in a special way that involves solders, a bender machine and a few other things, you see trak being made in the vekoma GIB documentary

Re: Why Don't People Like Rita?

Because its poo. :P
But the launch is forceless to me, the layout is boring and it doesn't fit. They should of asked Wardley to design it. :L

Re: Colossus

How can you say that the smiler inversions aren't well thought out? They are weaves in and out of each other making for near misses and have also created the ride to self duel?! But the point is, does the duelling work? No very often due to problems, Near misses are there on Colossus too, the airti...

Re: Nemesis or nemesis inferno

Swarm is like air tbh. But Nemesis has got the best coaster noise on the planet, along with the swarm, that has a lovely "whoosh" to it, I like colossus noise too. Nemesis looks much better in terms of aesthetics all the hand painted rust effects, the pit, the actual ride, its just better ...

Re: What will the smiler be like in 20 years?

The smiler will be part of many new and exciting rollercoasters as it would have been condemned by the HSE for giving people injuries. Then we will use the steel to fix nemesis' track whenever it needs replacing.

Re: Best Merlin launch coaster

Stealth as I rode Rita after stealth, the launch felt like a normal coaster drop, but flat. :| All it gives me is a lot of headbanging. :L Stealth is good as the airtime hill is great, also seeing the ORP's after!
