  1. We lived in Thailand for 3.5 years from '09-'12, only about 30 minutes from both Dreamland and Siam Park City. Both parks are pretty good. Dreamland is more aimed at kids, but does have some good rides and attractions. We went there several time and really enjoyed it. Admission is VERY cheap, as is the food. They have a KFC on site, as well as other restaurants, and many Thai style food stands where are pretty good and very inexpensive. We had a season pass for Siam Park City the first year we were there, they have a few more bigger rides and a water park. I've seen a few reports on TPR
  2. Is it actually open for everyone now, or is this a soft opening only? We will be there in about 10 days, so hoping it is open.
  3. I hope it is open soon, we're visiting in about two weeks! I'm excited to re-visit my #1 park! Ted
  4. It looks amazing! We're headed there in June, can't wait to ride. Totally love Phantasialand, went last summer and had a great time. ... too bad they're closing the Mexican section, I sorta liked that mine ride. Ted
  5. I lived in Thailand from '08 - '12, we went there several times and had a season pass one year! We liked the park, but it does have its warts. Overall a pretty good day and they've made some improvements. They were building the zierer coaster when we left so didn't get to ride it. Here are my highlights, and some lowlignts: highlights - Dark walk through is VERY good, really enjoyed it, scary and very well done. I was hoping to get some good photos and write something for DAFE, but didn't get around to it. - Vekoma SLC is one of the best, probably my 2nd favorite after the big custo
  6. I think they should build a terrain steel coaster on the side of the hill where the chairlift is located. Think about it, if they got with intamin or another similar manufacturer, they could build a terrain steel coaster ala Boulderdash, but with extreme steel drops and turns through the woods. Sorta a Skyrush on the side of a mountain. By using terrain and never going above the ground too much except for maybe 100 ft to add to a big drop, they could probably do it fairly cheaply. Probably 1/2 the price, it not a greater discount the the current price for a hyper coaster. Problem is a lot
  7. Don't feel bad, we all started out with only a few! I remember back, long ago, in the early nineties when I only had like 40 coasters. I ride off and on, some years a lot, some years not much. I MUCH older now but I've got about 125 wood coasters and 620 overall, it is a fun hobby. However there are plenty of people out there who have 800, 1000, and even many over 1500!! Just ride for fun, and enjoy your self, doesn't matter how many coaster you've ridden. Your vote sill counts on Mitch's poll!
  8. He must not, since my ballot always gets counted. Yes, I am one of those seemingly rare Voyage fans (2010-era). The layout takes the out-and-back concept to a new and innovative level with all its unusual twists and elements. I personally thought the initial, straightforward airtime hills were a highlight, but like (a much more brutal) El Toro, Voyage doesn't let up until the very end. I wouldn't say "rare" is the right word! Outside of TPR, Voyage clearly seems to be the #1 coaster. For some reason, most of TPR seems to go against the rest of the coaster community when it come
  9. Here are my current top 45 wood coasters, don't want to waste space with all 120 or so. Also, some of these won't be on the poll because they are gone.... Some I haven't ridden in 5-10 years, but I do have quite a few new credits in the UK and Europe this year! 1 The Voyage 2 Ravine Flyer II 3 Shivering Timbers 4 Boulderdash 5 Tonnere de Zeus 6 Hades 7 Fireball 8 Wodan Timbur Coaster 9 Thunderhead 10 Ghostrider Favorite Steel Ex. GeForce 11 Colossos (Heide Park) 12 El Toro 13 Legend 14 Rampage 15 Troy 16 Hellcat (Avalanche in Wisconsin) 17 Georgia Cyclo
  10. I always liked KK and SFKK. Went on numerous occasions from mid -90's until about 2005 or so. I always had a good time, never hit a really busy day, and enjoyed the coasters and rides they had. I had some very good rides on Thunder Run, off and on, and I really liked Twisted Twins too! Of course Chang was great, and later the Wild Mouse and Greased Lightinin' were cool. I rode quite a few other rides there as well, took my daughter there when she was younger and we had a great day. I would love to see them re-open and get all the exsisting rides back up and running, and look forward to an
  11. Ditto, the park was great! We loved the Hex thing in the castle, was absolutely brilliantly executed! We walked through the gardens, did some smaller rides for my kids. The log flume was very long and fun! Overall a truly great day at a wonderful theme park. Can't wait to get back and ride the Smiler and a few other things we missed.
  12. Finally made our first trip to Alton Towers last Monday, after hearing so much about the park for about 20 years now! I really liked the park, but the coasters were all a bit underwhelming, yes, even Nemesis. I've heard so much about Nemesis since it opened, how great of an inverted it is, and despite it's size and age how it still tops many enthusiasts inverted coaster list and it in many top ten lists. I thought Nemesis was good, really had no idea where I was going,but really honestly felt no better or more intense then most of my favorite B&M inverteds. It is short, like Batman, wi
  13. Din Tae Fung is awesome! One opened in Bangkok a couple of years ago. It is awesome. The NY times has rated it as one of the top ten restaurants in the entire world, no joke! We though Universal Singapore was a great park...
  14. Ok, after reading about half of this entire thread.....couldn't get through the entire thing with all the nastiness in here, I was a bit shocked at how Starjet at Casino Pier is being dismissed. I've always considered it one of the best smaller coasters I've ever ridden, as did many other enthusiasts I know on the east coast! It was a REALLY fun ride with some good air time, far better than just about every other 40-50 foot coaster I've ridden. I'm a bit shocked at how people are just like...they're rebuild, no big loss..etc. Casino Pier is (was?) a great pier! Both the Star Jet and Miler
