Alexander: Welcome all to Cabin Crew Coaster Kings’ coverage of the American Coaster Enthusiasts’ annual roller coaster convention, Coaster Con!
It’s ACE’s 40th Anniversary, so the convention is being hosted where the club began: Virginia (Six Flags America is also part of the itinerary, located in nearby Maryland).
After picking up our registration packets and reuniting with some of the hundreds of folks I’ve been riding coasters with the last several years, we set out for Six Flags America. Continue reading “Six Flags America – Coaster Con XLI”
Alexander: On the last day of Passholder Preview for Railblazer, Sean and I made the journey to California’s Great America to see what all the fuss is about and to do a general update on the park.

Sean: A quick summer afternoon trip to Six Flags Magic Mountain allowed for us to collect a nice bit of pictures for today’s new update.

Sean: This week we ventured to yet another few parks around the country. On some quick layovers we hit up two Cedar Fair parks. Valleyfair! was a new park for me, as where Carowinds was a much appreciated re-visit. Both visits took place within 24 hrs of each other, so why not create one report?

Alexander: Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana is an iconic brand in the American theme park landscape, famous for its friendly staff, spotless midways, excellent value, enormous water park, and stellar collection of modern wooden coasters.
Holiday World’s reputation is often louder than the park itself; the moves they make at this point are often not as boisterous as the enthusiast communities’ response to them. Everything – from management conflict to new rides – has been hotly discussed over the last 15+ years or so, and whether one’s opinion is positive or negative, it goes without saying that opinions of Holiday World are often strong ones.

Sean: Summer is almost here and that means theme-park season has begun! We have made quite some trips around the globe already this year, but there is no better time than Spring to explore some of the United States’ best parks. In this Cabin Crew Coaster Kings report, I’ll be sharing my first time experience at Kings Island. Enjoy! Continue reading “Cabin Crew Coaster KINGS ISLAND”
Edward from Ride!: We’re back with yet another quick update. We decided to celebrate the park’s 47th anniversary and see the new progress for CraZanity. The Boardwalk is nearing completion with tiny projects yet to be finished. With all the construction going on around, it’s really fun to imagine where it’s all headed. Let’s take a look!

Alexander: When work sends you to Nederlands on 3hrs notice, what do you do? You go to a theme park, of course!
Avonturenpark Hellendoorn is a park that Sean and I wanted to hit on our Europe trip, but there just wasn’t enough time! Lucky for me, the opportunity to visit came less than a month later! Continue reading “Avonturenpark Hellendoorn”
