Overshadowed Coasters

This for all those coasters out there which should be good in their own right but just don't live up to expectations, be it due to other better rides in the park or personally ridden recently. These rides may have fantastic stats and look amazing rides but just something causes it to not be as good ...

Re: Spain June/July 2018

Day 6 – Start of ISWZ Day starting with a disappointing breakfast at the residence. Was nothing more than 2 packs of dry biscuits and 1 doughnut. Nothing like the full continental breakfast range I could enjoy at the Madrid hotel. I wasn’t alone in not enjoying the breakfast, almost everyone compla...

Re: Spain June/July 2018

Sorry for the delay in continuing this. Uni work suddenly built up and when you spend all day writing a large essay, you’re not exactly motivated to write a different essay/trip report in the evenings! No park trips for a while as covering the ISWZ part of the trip, shall try and keep it brief as un...

Re: Spain June/July 2018

Day 4 – Railway Museum and Retiro Park Lots of photos today, Imgur saying 200 photos for days 1-3, but 275 just for day 4! No parks for a while either, just cultural things around Madrid and Zaragoza. Started today at the Museo Ferrocarril de Madrid (Madrid Railway Museum). While I don’t consider m...

Re: Spain June/July 2018

Day 3 – Parque Warner (29/6/18) Slightly earlier start today as park opened at 11:30 and had further to travel to get to the park. As recommended by many people on here, I got a train from Atocha station to Pinto station before getting the local bus service straight to the park. Other than a bit of...

Re: Spain June/July 2018

Day 2 – Parque de Attraciones de Madrid (28/6/18) Day started well with nice breakfast at hotel and was straight onto the Metro towards the park. Park didn’t open till midday so was able to have a small lie in before breakfast. Had slight problem on way to the park as Metro train didn’t park correc...

Spain June/July 2018

Sorry for the delay in writing this. Have been busy over the summer and only just found the time. For those who didn’t already know, I recently went on a 2 week trip to Spain, covering the Madrid parks, Zaragoza, Barcelona, Tibidabo and Port Aventura. This is was my first time ever in Spain so all e...

Re: Kings Island: Goodbye Firehawk

Pity, It did look a good ride and was relatively unique, have heard it was quite rough though. Hopefully it will get relocated again somewhere.

Re: Scare Mazes!

Haven't done any this year yet but may end up at Thorpe Fright Nights this year. If so, will likely try every maze available.

Re: B&M Wing vs Dive Coasters

There is absolutely no way that dive coasters are the cheap option for parks. Not only do they have the larger track, the massive cars would also take up a large volume of the cost. Even the smaller versions would still be expensive, especially on maintenance. The wing coasters aren't cheap either b...
