Superman Krypton Coaster | Roller Coaster Reviews

I’d had my eye on Six Flags Fiesta Texas‘ floorless looper for years. Superman Krypton Coaster looked to have a pretty cool back drop thanks to the park’s rocky cliff walls and a different layout than the other floorless coasters. Plus, Krypton Coaster consistently ranked pretty well in the Internet Coaster Poll. Last month, I finally made it down to San Antonio to take the ride ...[Read More]

Early Reviews & a POV Video – Green Lantern @ Six Flags Great Adventure

Six Flags Great Adventure’s Green Lantern-theme Stand Up Coaster Opens Last week, Great Adventure fans got their first rides on the Green Lantern. Replacing the aging and rough Great American Scream Machine, the B&M stand up was a remarkable ride in its former life as Chang at Kentucky Kingdom. During its transformation the ride received new trains and a fresh, mostly green, paint job. I...[Read More]

HellCat at Timber Falls Adventure Park | Coaster Reviews

A Small Wonder in Wisconsin That Shouldn’t Be Overlooked On my trip to the Wisonsin Dells I had experienced the underground insanity of Hades at Mt. Olympus along with that park’s arsenal of other woodies. It was almost time for me to head back south and catch my flight in Chicago. With only a little time to spare I made the decision to swing by Timber Falls Adventure Park for HellCat....[Read More]

Rattler at Six Flags Fiesta Texas | Coaster Reviews

The Rattler at Six Flags Fiesta Texas should be renamed Two-Face after the Batman villian. The massive wooden coaster built on a cliff wall has some awesome moments and then some of that vintage wooden coaster abuse that we’ve all come to know so well. The trek to the Rattler’s station in itself was memorable. After moving past some large boulders that outline the queue, you begin to a...[Read More]

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster @ Disney’s Hollywood Studios | Coaster Reviews

Disney Parks are known for being ostentatious; it’s practically a calling card of the world’s most famous theme parks. Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, some of the most beautiful, well executed rides in existence, in all of their many iterations, and that says nothing of all of the other amazingly themed areas and rides contained in the Disney Parks. Yet, Rock ‘n’...[Read More]

Fahrenheit @ Hersheypark | Roller Coaster Reviews

The coasters that seem to generate the most buzz, both in our niche community of enthusiasts, as well as in the general public, tend to lean towards the gargantuan. Earlier this year when the Intimidator coasters launched, the lion’s share of the buzz was reserved for the 305 foot tall version introduced at Kings Dominion, Intimidator 305, built by Intamin. That’s not to say the Carowinds Intimida...[Read More]

Nighthawk & Batwing | Roller Coaster Reviews

Nighthawk & Batwing | Vekoma Flying Roller Coasters Flying roller coasters are about the closest thing to human flight that the amusement industry can offer. Riders are treated to a thrilling face down riding position with nothing between them and the ground, but the ride’s restraints. My first Vekoma flyer was Batwing at Six Flags America in Maryland. While I’m a huge B&M fan,...[Read More]

Intimidator 305 @ Kings Dominion | Roller Coaster Reviews

Kings Dominion’s Intense NASCAR-Themed Giga Coaster Doesn’t Dissapoint The train rockets around the final turn. Guests waiting in the queue hear it roar by and into the final brakes. Somehow the short stretch of magnetic brakes slow the charging train to a crawl. Immediately, the train erupts with adrenaline-fueled applause and laughter as Intimidator 305 has just delivered another thr...[Read More]

Sky Rocket @ Kennywood | Roller Coaster Reviews

I’m a big fan of launched coasters, they’re still new enough that almost all of them offer unique elements, and certainly all of this new generation of launched coasters have something to offer enthusiasts. If there is a gripe to be had with launched coasters, it’s that too often they under perform when compared to their like brethren, the traditional chain or cable lift rides. True, the idea of a...[Read More]
