Top Thrill Dragster @ Cedar Point | Guest Review

Guest reviewer, Trent from the Coasterblog, gives us his review of Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point. It was shut down right before I got to ride it, so here’s his review of the former speed and height World record holder. [divider] Cedar Point was already known as the Coaster Capitol of the world before 2003. With 15 roller coasters they had more than their fair share of thrills. Then, in ...[Read More]

Early Reviews & Video of Superman Ultimate Flight @ Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom’s new roller coaster, Superman Ultimate Flight is open for business. Unlike the other rides by the same name in the Six Flags chain, this Superman Ultimate Flight is not a flying coaster, it’s a compact launched roller coaster from Premier Rides. From the early reviews I’m reading, it sounds like the park really has a winner on its hands. Some were con...[Read More]

Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom | Guest Review

Have you ever imagined yourself as the owner of a theme park? I have. I’ve never fiddled with that “No Limits” game all the kids seem to enjoy, but I have had a bit of fun with every iteration of the Roller Coaster Tycoon series. Does that make me think I could run a theme park, design roller coasters, or even make sure there were enough hot dog stands? Of course not, but when one looks at the num...[Read More]

Guest Review of Skyrush @ Hersheypark

Guest reviewer Aric has returned with another in-depth review. He was one of the first to ride Hersheypark’s new Skyrush roller coaster. [divider] I came to Hersheypark to ride Skyrush after a day spent using Fast Lane at Cedar Point. While in Sandusky, my daughter and I were treated to what essentially amounted to no lines on the big three, Millennium Force, Top Thrill Dragster, and my pers...[Read More]

Apocalypse Opens at Six Flags America | Early Reviews

Apocalypse Now Open at Six Flags America The foretold zombie apocalypse is here! Or, at least Six Flags America’s Apocalypse roller coaster is open. Sorry to get your hopes up. Anyway, the Washington D.C.-area park now has their first new roller coaster in what seems like an eternity. While it’s actually a not a completely new ride (formerly Iron Wolf at Six Flags Great America), I hav...[Read More]

SeaWorld San Diego’s Manta | Reviews & Videos

SeaWorld San Diego’s new Manta roller coaster has been open for a while now. Reviews are starting to roll in and it sounds like the park now has a solid roller coaster that they can boast. Even with the height restriction issue, it looks like they succeeded in making a fun family coaster thanks to the launches and the ride’s twisted course. Here are some reviews that I’ve come ac...[Read More]

Early Reviews of Skyrush at Hersheypark

Another weekend is here, and in a year packed with new roller coasters, that means another set of exciting new rides are open. This time, Hersheypark fans were treated to their first rides on Skyrush. The park’s new winged-seat, hyper coaster is generating some very positive reviews.

Rave Reviews of X-Flight, Now Open at Six Flags Great America

X-Flight opened last week and from the footage I’ve been seeing, the ride looks incredible. Just as the animated videos and images showed, X-Flight is packed with inversions and great looking near-misses. I’m still feeling pretty good about picking it as my most anticipated roller coaster of 2012. Here’s a sample of some of the rave reviews that X-Flight has been receiving: I got...[Read More]

Journey to Atlantis @ SeaWorld Orlando | Coaster Reviews

On my recent trip to SeaWorld Orlando I got a fresh (and extra wet) ride on Journey to Atlantis. Water roller coasters are a fairly recent development. They merge the chute the shoot water ride with roller coaster elements. There are three Journey to Atlantis water roller coasters at the three SeaWorld parks. After boarding the ride’s boats, I shoved off into the world of Atlantis, the mythi...[Read More]

Early Reviews of Leviathan at Canada’s Wonderland

The highly anticipated B&M giga coaster is here. Leviathan has been unleashed at Canada’s Wonderland and some early reviews are starting to trickle in. Once again, Crave Coasters was there with great coverage of that monster. During a benefit, a few lucky riders were the first to face it’s sky-scrapping 300-plus foot peak. Leviathan’s Lair – New Tunnel Added The preview...[Read More]

Coastersaurus at Legoland Florida | Coaster Reviews

Wooden roller coasters aren’t as common as steel coasters. So even though Coastersaurus is a smaller ride that some would categorize as a junior woodie, I was excited to check it out. As a big bonus, my oldest daughter (almost 5) was up to the challenge too. Coastersaurus used to be known as Triple Hurricane when the park was Cypress Gardens. Now it has a Jurassic Park-like theme with life-s...[Read More]
