  1. 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...).
  2. 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.
  3. New Kid on the block!
  4. 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.
  5. Sorry, just going off what I've read online including from Richard as well.
  6. ^ 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.
  7. 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).
  8. 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?
  9. Surfrider Annual Maintenance

    No. I'm sure most members will agree it suits SW more and always has. But is it worth the money to move it - because they do need another attraction right now.
  10. Surfrider Annual Maintenance

    I wonder if... Sea World... will get a new ride? Do you think it'd be worth moving it for what you gain?
  11. Theme Park Maintenance Schedules 2017

    It'd be cool if they had a store on Main St that could promote the new coaster with some motion base seats + VR -- like what Liseburg is doing for their new dive coaster.
  12. Effect or Audio Errors on Rides

    YES! Did Gringotts at USF and the fog screen didn't appear on the first time I did the ride, so I knew what was coming next... (not waning to spoil it for anyone else)
  13. Top 10 Bucket-list Coasters

    Really keen to go on Fury 325. I'd also like to re-ride Intimidator 305 because I remember not loving it the first time I rode it in 2010. Also I want to ride Lightning Rod, and I can't wait for the Mean Streak RMC conversion next year. I've never done an RMC though so really would love to ride any. Other ones I'm really looking forward to (in no particular order): El Toro Speed Dragon 2000 The Flying Dinosaur Taron Maverick Leviathan
  14. Favourite Fright Nights Maze?

    Evil Within volume 1 would be up there. Conjuring was pretty good (wish I went when the ceiling girl was still in there). The Film Vault had those chainlink fences with the strobe lights, yeah? While it felt cheap, man it was scary. Wolf Creek in its first year was also really good with the outdoor sets that felt really realistic (think it was that one). Felt a bit dead actor wise though (which kind of helped build up the anticipation).
