Sean + Alexander: Annually we have released a full California Top 50, but we decided to take it down a notch and really focus on what the top 10 best coasters in the state are, and why we think so. This year brought us Patriot, the state’s only major new coaster experience of the year, but every year again we completely find a new ranking appropriate. So sit back, and enjoy our end-of-the-year coverage finishing with The California Top 10 of 2017! Continue reading “The California Top 10 of 2017!”
Sean: I may live next to Six Flags Magic Mountain, and visit quite frequently, but with the holidays, travels across the country and the state, it has been a while that we actually got an update for you all. But with the park being open every day from now on, those updates will be pouring in all 2018 long. Let’s throw in a late 2017 update to end yet another year of updates around the state. In this update we’ll look at the construction zone, some notes around the park, and the park’s new entrance sign they placed today! Continue reading “Six Flags Magic Mountain Update – December 29th 2017”
Alexander: Following our ideal Dollywood day, Sean and I popped over to nearby NASCAR Speed Park so that Sean could get a ride on the park’s resident coaster, Speedway Drift.
NASCAR Speed Park was so kind to host us during our visit (especially since it’s a very expensive coaster credit), but we have some concerns about the park’s future. We hope that, if nothing else, their good customer service can keep them afloat.
Sean: WinterFest has returned for a second year and has proven to be fair competition with the rest of the state’s major Holiday events, managing to offer a unique experience while limiting guests to just three of the park’s major coasters. The event offers quality entertainment, awesome lights all around the event, and unique attractions such as ice skating, character meet ‘n greets and faux snow of course! McLaren and I hit up the event, and would love to show off what the event has to offer! Oh and there’s a little RailBlazer construction for you all. Continue reading “WinterFest at California’s Great America – 2017!”
Sean: HangTime construction is still moving along incredibly quickly, and thus we have a new update STUFFED with new track, dents, and elements. The sun was out today and we got a great update for you with the Pretzel, holding brakes, station and brake-runs and Cobra Roll under construction! Continue reading “HangTime at Knott’s Berry Farm Update – December 15th 2017”
Alexander: If you ask me, to two best places to be during the holidays are Disney or Dollywood.
On the heels of our Disneyland visit last month, we now bring you some December coastering courtesy of Dolly!
Alexander: Ho Ho Ho!!!
It’s time for a holiday-tastic visit to Disneyland Resort!
There’s plenty to enjoy at Disney during the holiday season, but my personal favorite is it’s a small world holiday (which, at this point, I’d have to say is my absolute #1 favorite Disney attraction).
We were treated to a particularly-special ride on small world (more on that later), so we took the opportunity to do a full write-up on the classic flume’s holiday overlay. Continue reading “Disneyland Christmas & small world holiday Exposé”
Sean: Knott’s Berry Farm is a few weeks into Merry Farm now and after the recent Thanksgiving period construction of HangTime has resumed to move along rapidly. In this update we’ll take a look at the newly added track and supports, as well as what’s stored on the parking lot across from the park and some quick notes from around the park!
