  1. All hail the Mavershark, it was absolutely sensational in ERT. Millennium Force was also a big mover for me from some sensational, bug splatting, ERT. Pretty much agree with the top 20, the ones I haven't ridden I think I would have rated highly. Though the exception I'm not sure about is whether I'd rate Leviathan so highly, but you ever know until you ride it. Gatesleeper is quite mediocre IMO, just not very thrilling, especially considering it's size. Good to see the victims of Volare violation speaking out at the rear end of the poll.
  2. Great work Hanno! I'm sold, it looks great. Interesting point about copying a layout, the guys who came with the Coney Island Cyclone would be owed a fair bit of cash. Speaking of cash, at a reported $8 million Euro cost on RCDB, that's a pretty competitive price. I've personally observed the French waiting 3 hours to ride Goudurix in searing heat, at least this coaster looks worth it.
  3. Lovely report, thanks for putting it up. Mine Train Ulven is a fantastic coaster, great first drop. Monster caught me by surprise too the first time, though I wasn't injured - nice, fun, different coaster. Overall the park is so much fun, can't wait to be back at Bakken in June. Bouncy Kangaroo take over? Maybe, we should have enough Aussies to do it ourselves.
  4. Whatever happened to Barry, or more precisely, what institution is he being held in? I think the spark might be lost when she realises the relationship keeps going round in circles. Maybe she'll cheat on ferris with a random zipper to spice things up?
  5. With restraints, it certainly makes a difference if they staple you in or not. Just from personal experience, the ops at El Toro staple you hard, whereas Balder they didn't push down hard at all. Not sure if that is still the case, but Scandinavia seems to be less strict (but still safe). To me, this is definitely the next level wood coaster. Outlaw Run seems like a preview. It will be interesting to see how Wildfire and the new SfGAm Goliath compare as ride experiences.
  6. I guess the bigger, more important question is: will Swedish law allow Wildfire at Kolmarden to be married to more than one person at the same time?
  7. Wow, Balder just got pwned. So the next TPR Scandi tour after this year will be 16 days at Kolmarden?
  8. Yeah, but I can still get six hours of sleep before I need to wake up to get to work in the morning. You might have the easy timing but you still need to deal with coconut crabs and the rest of 'Straya's insanity, hahaha. Negotiating deadly wild beasts of all varieties for me is just an everyday part of life (or death if you screw up). Hopefully I won't be screaming HOAX when it's 4-foot Dragon Wagon with a wood-fired barbeque in the middle selling bbq'd Swedish meatballs. I still think it will be IKEA's first coaster, flat packs are on their way to Kolmarden right now.
  9. ^I have, I can't remember if I rode it with you, but nothing comes close to Hades Threesuxty.
  10. ^Is that a bit over 5 hours for you? If so, it will be around 7pm for me. Wildfire, ride of certain doom...
  11. I spoke with the park when that was posted and they don't where RCDB is getting their information from because everyone that knows about the project is under NDA including myself. So RCDB is just taking a wild guess. We'll find out in a few hours, won't we? We sure will, the announcement should be just before I leave work. I was actually surprised RCDB had it up because they're generally very conservative and don't usually put something up until details are absolutely confirmed.
  12. Is rcdb off the mark with it being a wooden coaster with an "extreme" tag? I'll hope for the tallest, steepest wood coaster which will also be the longest coaster overall and have the most inversions steel or wood LOL...and most boobs in the theming. Seriously, if Robb is super-impressed, that's a pretty good barometer for awesomeness.
  13. Outlaw Run is my number one, a longer version of Outlaw Run would rock my world. Not much longer to go until the Laser Snake Horse Fire Coaster from Hades announcement. I wonder if this will be Ikea's first attempt at a coaster?
  14. A multi-launch coaster that utilises the terrain with a big-for-Europe first drop would be good. Theming involving boobies is pretty much law in Sweden.
  15. ^It's going to be Mildfire compared to what has been imagined.
  16. It's going to be like the old Backdraft at Universal, except it's a walkthrough...and that's just the queue. Then you jump on the back of an animatronic Edward from Twilight who takes you on a wild ride through the forest, if you aren't dead or debilitated from being burned in the queue. I'm certainly curious, at least we only have to wait a little while longer.
  17. Go on a TPR tour... It's a great way to exponentially increase your credit count.
  18. Tokyo Disneysea and Wurzberg Fair...okay, just kidding. La Wronge...45 mins wait for an SLC after you've checked in your gold flashbot. The hamburgers tasted like ham. They are French Canadien, and though don't so much fart in your general direction, as projectile poop dihorrea. I qualify my answer by saying I haven't been to Fuji-Q, and Sux Flags America was a close second. This ratty little ghetto carnival by the beach just before Christmas in Scarborough, Queensland, Australia. The Ghetto Wave winger was up on wood blocks on grass, and looked like it was held together with macramé. To add insult to certain injury, it also was expensive.

    Las Vegas

    There's another credit off the strip at Las Vegas Mini Grand Prix, if you're keen for some whoring. Adventuredome isn't too bad at all, especially good in Halloween season. Desperado is closed some days, so make sure you check before heading out.
  20. ^I've only been on the SFOG one too (with a space LOL), though the Edmonton one sounds impressive...and weather proof. I love how Anton full circuit coasters have so much force, but are so smooth.
  21. ^The funny thing is either Mind Bender would have fit that slot perfectly.
  22. ^Having ridden a few unfortunately, "Least Violating volare" would be apt. Let's see if Goudurix can continue it's dominance of last spot, there's some bad ones out there, but I see no clear challenger. To add insult to grievous bodily harm, the day I was there, the poor French people were lining up for three hours on an infernally hot day to ride it.
  23. ^Good point, I forgot they cut all them out. I'd rather ride a kiddie coaster than Goudurix, though riding neither would be more preferable. Ah memories, I remember the mini Dragon Wagon at Beech Bend almost tipped over with all of us in it.
  24. Got mine in today. Thought I'd do it from scratch this year, that was a lot of work. My 472 steel coaster count (according to coastercounter.com) chunked up to 211 on the poll with the grouped coasters. That's a lot of clones.
  25. ^^Apparently there's a massive queue just to get into the place today. They're just watching it from their Hotel window in horror now, hoping Godzilla turnns up.
