  1. ^I agree with most of your points, but the point you made about parks struggling before the pandemic is not true. Most public attendance figures have shown that the theme park industry has actually been growing over the past few years. 2020 was supposed to be a great year for new rides until all this happened. The rise of at home entertainment is not killing the theme park industry, and in some ways is actually benefiting it. Malls are dying because people can shop online. Theaters are dying because people can watch movies online. But theme park rides? You can watch a POV online, but that's n
  2. In 2019, I went to Tivoli, Walibi Holland, Heide Park, Phantasialand, PortAdventura, Rhinekirmes and California's Great America. The year before I went to Grona Lund, Kolmarden, Energylandia, and Legendia. The year before that I went to Cedar Point, Phantasialand Hansa Park, Holiday Park, and Europa Park. I'm perfectly fine taking 2020 off, as I went to multiple new parks every year for the previous three years. My plan for 2020 was to do Holiwood Nights, (I have never been to Holiday World). The schedule is still on for the end of may, but I'm not holding my breath on that one. Holiwood n
  3. Twisted Colossus is really the only reason I still go to this park. If they can go from having one coaster good enough to make me tolerate this park to having two, that is a big step up for me.
  4. I have been to Phantasialand twice in my life. Both visits were two years apart. Rookburgh was under construction both times I went. My first visit to the park was in 2017. That was almost three years ago.
  5. ^^Late May at best. Maybe longer. I would not book any theme park trips for this summer. A am tentatively planning an August trip, but I am still going to wait and see before booking it.
  6. At this time, it looks like most big parks will eventually close. There is no way around that. The real question is how long. I'm hoping that the parks can reopen by the summer season, but that is a pretty big question.
  7. Will the second Boomerang have a different layout from the other? I hope so. I swear, this park is like someone is playing a scenario in Roller Coaster Tycoon when you are desperate for more money and guests, so you start spamming cheap coasters. Seriously, this park has one of the largest coaster selections in the world, but the fourth best coaster at this time is the Vekoma family suspended coaster. I know this park is getting EU funding, but I would not be surprised if money laundering conspiracies start popping up.
  8. So far, I have decided to postpone any major park trips until further notice. I was saving up for a Midwest/South trip this summer with Silver Dollar City being the main destination, but as of now I am going to wait to see the effects of the virus on the industry before booking any flights. Instead, I might tentatively plan a mini road trip to visit some smaller parks in the Mountain West, like Lagoon and Glenwood Caverns. Much less stress planning a trip where I do not have to book a flight, and I feel like regional parks would be a safer bet than larger ones.
  9. I consider Furius Baco to be one of the worst coasters I have ever ridden. I have ridden several SLC's, and all of them are smoother than Baco. I would also mention Kärnan. I do not hate this coaster, but I do not think it is anywhere near the top ten in Europe as many others seem to think. It is very rough for a new steel coaster, and it has a ton of awkward transitions. The layout feels very meandering, like this coaster is trying to be I305 but not succeeding. I liked Fluch von Novgorod a lot better.
  10. Legendia was the weirdest park I have ever been two. They have two different Zyklon coasters with similar layouts. (Though these kinds of coasters are sort of a guilty pleasure for me). They have lots of odd flat rides and a weird looping coaster (closed on my visit). Everyone knows this park for the Vekoma looper, but it was still weirder than I was expecting. Getting there was an experience in and of itself. Katowice is very "Eastern Blocky." If you want to see what a typical Communist bloc city looked like, take the long walk from the train station to the park. I would totally go back.
  11. It's a mixed bag. In Poland, everybody speaks English, but not all the signs will be in English, especially at food places. (Polish is so difficult to read, I ended up pointing to what I wanted). They do take cards. This might be obvious, but be sure to see other things in the Krakow area. If you want to go to Auschwitz (and you should), book your tickets in advance. Also be sure to visit the salt mine, and the occupation museum. Krakow has a nice old town, so it is a great place to walk around in. The Jewish Quarter is great at night. (But watch out for strip clubs/scams).
  12. I recently went to the park for the first time in a few years, mainly for Railblazer. Railblazer did not disappoint. It was awesome. I was not a fan of the shape of the seats and the way my foot bones hit the sides on the lateral movements. but other than that it was perfect. The capacity is also terrible, so ride it early. Twisted Colossus is my favorite in California, but Railblazer is a real contender for second. i hadn't ridden Patriot since the conversion. I actually liked it more than I thought I would. It is still a little rough, but there is just enough intensity to make it enjoya
  13. My last visit was three years ago. Timber Terror was running great at that time, but Tremors was quite rough. I know the park uses topper track on some sections of Tremors, but it could use more. Even though the wood coasters are hit-or-miss, the operations are bad, and the park is long overdue for a new coaster, I still love this park. It has that "small park" charm that feel like a breath of fresh air in a country dominated by corporate parks. I might be moving to Northern Idaho soon. If I do, I will be proud to call this my home park.
  14. Frisbees are quite effective rides. You can get good airtime during the direction changes. I can't ride them anymore because I no longer have the tolerance for spinning that I used to, but I do miss riding them.
  15. ^That one still makes a lot more sense than some of the other rankings. Phoenix is my #2 wood, with my #1 being Wildfire. I don't know how far down the list Wildfire is, but I guarantee it would make me cringe.
