  1. Yep, I experienced the rattle too on the last 2 rows, but worse in the backwards row IMO (perhaps the way I ride in the seat?). I didn't really feel it day one, but whether or not I was too preoccupied with excitement. @Richard has mentioned a possible wheel alignment issue, which I hope it is. Everyone says how smooth Mack coasters are, and I assume the forward rows are smoother (I have only ridden in the front once, and never in the middle of the train). It's a beautiful coaster, but I definitely feel the vibration is noticeable and uncomfortable (not overly however).
  2. Fright Nights 2017

    So they're putting two mazes in one shed? Wonder how that's going to pan out...
  3. I've ridden a few Eurofighters and I've found them to be quite 'abrupt' at times. I've never been a huge fan.
  4. News agency said it was the first NIL in the world. I got angry. Then I hear the CEO say the same thing in the press conference....
  5. Movie World New Park Map

    I can appreciate how realistic this map actually is. I also quite like the type of animation/artwork. However as a map it fails miserably. I think it's fine for a website, though.
  6. DC Rivals HyperCoaster - backwards seating

    Re backseats - was there less of a wait for the backwards rows (factoring in time spent, as it's only 2 seats per train)? Also, do they usually 'cap' sales within a certain time period? I don't want to miss out if I do the first ride facing forwards.
  7. Actventure Sunshine Coast

    Really reminds me of Universal Orlando's Citywalk with the lake and shops around it. Let's hope it turns into something decent (or just turns into something...).
  8. Marathon on Coasters?

    In recent memory my most awesome marathoning experience was Mako at SeaWorld Orlando. Over 3 days I rode it in chunks of 10-15 times without having to leave the station. They were running two trains and it was really quiet in the park. I got to swap between A LOT of seats to experience it from all different rows and sides. It was a cool experience. And they were filming a TVC so we were in the non-models train But we had a drone that was filming our train as we raced past. I did two TPR trips in 2010 and we rode plenty of coasters during ERT and had some great marathoning experiences. My most memorable experience there was riding Prowler non-stop through the woods in complete darkness. It was one of my first woodies, too. At Dollywood I marathoned Thunderhead but got a bit over it. I waited outside the ride's entrance and got told to get back on lol.

  10. I was wondering how they were going to convert the old New York(?) section into sci-fi. Seems like they did it in the cheapest way possible. Hopefully they keep that white finish looking fresh. The inside theming looks great though. Very retro - I like it.
  11. Sorry, just going off what I've read online including from Richard as well.
  12. ^ I much prefer non-inverting loops as you get a nice pop of airtime usually at the top. Interesting what you said re wheel choice.
  13. Dreamworld reviewing its master plan.

    Considering the Coomera Town Centre is going to likely feature a few entertainment and dining options, I'm not sure we'll see much from DW to try and do their own offerings. Wasn't Dreamworld going to directly connect to this, with a separate park entrance? I'm not sure what the future has in store for DW and Adrent, but I've seen Ardent do a few things that seem to suggest they don't care about long term profits as much as short term gains (then again, most public companies think this way it seems).
  14. Scooby Doo Spooky Coaster refurb in Nov/Dec 2017

    I do agree the last three (if you count that tiny 'hidden' drop that's actually the worst) are quite jarring. Not sure if they're getting worse or I'm getting older, haha. I think if anything it's the speed which makes these worse. Does steel track 'age' as such (besides to corrosion), or is it all due to the trains and wheels?
