Sven: Fury sparkles as the newest coaster addition in Belgium. The ride has some unique features and finally puts Bobbejaanland back on the map. But besides the ride, they opened a brand new area at the park to accommodate this interesting new coaster. Ready to battle the threats?
Sven: It’s hot in Europe and yet, we go out to the parks to enjoy the coasters and more. To celebrate my birthday, I recently went to Disneyland Paris! It was time to visit Henry Ravenswood again after a long refurbishment. Also, the Walt Disney Studios really looks like a construction zone with the new Marvel Land coming up. Lots of tips in this one, see let’s go!
Alexander: Welcome to our comprehensive countdown of Cedar Fair parks! Before we begin, let’s talk about the two Cedar Fair parks that are not featured on this list, and why:
Sean: Obviously we like Vekoma’s products, and though admittedly some can be a bit rough or intense to the point where most modern riders find them uncomfortable, not all Vekoma coasters are created equally. Vekoma’s newest products have taken the world by storm and are considered some of the best thrill rides ever created, none however, are located in the United States. Let’s take a look at what the 5 Best Vekoma coasters are in the US, leaving out obvious Disney-fan favorites this time. Continue reading “The 5 Best (Non-Disney) Vekomas in the US!”
Sean: Our travels have been taking us all over the continent lately, that included a visit to Six Flags New England! The park is home to a fascinating mix of production model coasters and world-class custom rides. The park is clean and maintained but has made some questionable decisions in their lifetime. Let’s take a look! Continue reading “Six Flags New England – Trip Report – June 2019”
Sean: Alex and I were thrilled to be back in Valencia where we previously lived. Of course no visit to Los Angeles is complete without a visit to Six Flags Magic Mountain!

Alexander: It’s a real pleasure to be back in our old home park. Six months since our move to Orlando and Magic Mountain feels more special than ever.
Derrion: The anticipation builds around Universal Studios Hollywood’s 2019 addition: Jurassic World. There is still no word on when the attraction will open so I thought I would drop by the park for a quick update. Continue reading “Universal Studios Hollywood – Park Update Mid-June 2019”
Preston: I’ve been waiting for this for such a long time! After it being announced in 2015, FOUR YEARS AGO, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened at the Disneyland Resort this past Friday, May 31st. I was lucky enough to be able to secure an opening day reservation for the land earlier in the month when they became available. This trip report is going to cover EVERYTHING in Galaxy’s Edge. From Millenium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, to Oga’s Cantina, to the Droid Depot, and everything in between.
Alexander: Who’s ready for a visit to America’s oldest amusement park!? Lake Compounce in Bristol, Connecticut was kind enough to host us on our visit – their hospitality is something we’ll never forget! Continue reading “Lake Compounce”

Let’s take a look at what makes Kings Island so great, even after the departure of Firehawk! Continue reading “What Makes Kings Island So Great? – Trip Report”

Sven: You probably know that I live in Belgium. Coasterwise, we don’t have the tallest or the most thrilling coasters out there. However, we do have some unique coasters that can only be experienced in our tiny country. Today, we put one of those in the spotlight as it is a true icon in many ways. Raise your glass to 30 years of excitement thanks to Revolution at Bobbejaanland!
Alexander: Time to visit a rare “zombie” of a park – one that was snatched from the jaws of death in the most unlikely of circumstances! It’s Kentucky Kingdom!
Sean and Alex went to opening day of the newest coaster at Universal’s Islands of Adventure! And after a long wait, here’s the review of Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure!
Sean: Good morning from a park we’ve always wanted to visit, for the strange reason that no one really talks about the park besides their lack of new attractions. Let’s head in to the Michigan’s largest theme park, and find out what we think of the aesthetic and attractions!
