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]

Wild Eagle Opens – Early Reviews & Videos

America’s first wing roller coaster, Wild Eagle, opened this weekend and there were of course some theme park fans in attendance. Overall, reviews seemed very positive. The only even slightly negative thing I came across was a mention of “slight discomfort from the restraints”. Here’s a brief overview of what I’ve been reading. Where you sit on Wild Eagle seems to rea...[Read More]

Ninja at Six Flags Over Georgia | Roller Coaster Reviews

Ninja Skillfully & Deceptively Punishes Riders Ninja wasn’t one of the roller coasters picked by the readers for me to review. I just felt it was my civic duty to warn the masses about this ride. I’m sure that many are drawn to this coaster because it looks really cool. Ninja’s twisted mess of red steel sitts on top of a pond towards the back of Six Flags Over Georgia. The Ve...[Read More]

Great American Scream Machine | Roller Coaster Reviews

A Review of Great American Scream Machine at Six Flags Over Georgia Located near the back of Six Flags Over Georgia you’ll find Great American Scream Machine.

Georgia’s version is an out-and-back wooden rolle...[Read More]

Mind Bender at Six Flags Over Georgia | Roller Coaster Reviews

Mind Bender: A Classic Steel Roller Coaster at Six Flags Over Georgia For some reason I think I’ve overlooked just how much fun Mind Bender is. Many die-hard coaster enthusiasts praise Anton Schwarzkopf-designed steel loopers, but here it really is more than just nostalgia for rides that are no longer made. In 2011, the 33 year old Mind Bender easily delivered some of the most fun rides I...[Read More]

Dare Devil Dive @ Six Flags Over Georgia | Roller Coaster Reviews

It took a while, but I finally made it down to Six Flags Over Georgia to ride Dare Devil Dive. It was a part of a guys getaway weekend. I was the only one in our group that had already been to the park, so I took the lead for that part of the trip. The ultra-steep, Gerstlauer-designed looper, Dare Devil Dive, was high on the to-ride list in my mental itinerary. It opened earlier this year as the p...[Read More]

Kraken @ SeaWorld Orlando | Roller Coaster Reviews

Kraken at SeaWorld Orlando | Roller Coaster Review Kraken at SeaWorld Orlando has been one of Florida’s most popular roller coasters for years. It’s a floorless B&M looper where riders face seven loops in unprotected, open air seating. I got the chance to ride it when I visited SeaWorld for the opening of Manta a few years ago. Kraken’s Setting & Theme Until Manta came on...[Read More]
