Titan at Six Flags Over Texas | Roller Coaster Reviews

I was overcome by euphoria. For a moment, there was just so much joy that I was speechless. All of that emotion/thoughts and Titan had only begun.

As I climbed the orange skyscraper’s 245′ lift hill, I had an excellent view of the surround area including the beautiful Cow...[Read More]

Grizzly @ Kings Dominion | Roller Coaster Reviews

Remember that roller coaster that everyone talked about when you were young? That one ride that was considered a kind of local legend of sorts. These rides were sometimes the focus of juvenile horror stories, myths, and just plain made up stories. The folklore often stemmed from respect and fear of that one wild roller coaster that you just had to conquer. Kings Dominion’s Grizzly was that r...[Read More]

Saw – The Ride @ Thorpe Park | Roller Coaster Reviews

Superman Krypton Coaster | Roller Coaster Reviews

I’d had my eye on Six Flags Fiesta Texas‘ floorless looper for years.

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]
