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: 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.

Alexander: After a trip of wins, we finally took a loss on the final parks of our Europe tour, Disneyland Park Paris and Walt Disney Studios.
While Efteling, Walibi, De Warbeek, Slagharen, Movie Park, and Phantasialand (swoon) all shattered expectations, Disneyland Paris Resort showed us why it’s the weakest link in Disney’s 6-link chain. Continue reading “Disneyland Paris Resort”

HangTime is a Gerstlauer Infinity Coaster and opened at Knott’s Berry Farm this week as California’s first Dive Coaster! This is the park’s biggest coaster addition in the 14 years, and of course that was reason for a party! Continue reading “HangTime, California’s First Dive Coaster, Opens at Knott’s Berry Farm”
Sean: Six Flags Magic Mountain was so kind to invite us to their next CraZanity construction tour, we were unable to make it, but our great friend Edward at Ride! was able to attend and create a report for us! Enjoy! Edward: Hello, we’re back at the mountain for an all-new construction tour of CraZanity and The Boardwalk! Much has changed since the last tour we had a couple months back.

Sean: In this installment of our journey to some of Europe’s unique theme parks, we visit another old home park of mine, one of which I spent quite a bit of my childhood at! Movie Park Germany! Another ex-Six Flags park that had a serious identity crisis for a bit, but is now doing much better! Let’s take a look! Continue reading “Operation: Movie Park Germany”
Alexander: Hello again, peeps!
The shortest update of our Europe visit is Attractiepark Slagharen. We only spent an hour and a half at this little park (the rest of the day was spent at Movie Park Germany), but what a gem this place is! Continue reading “Slagharen”
Sean: One of Europe’s best known theme-parks is the Efteling, which opened as a nature driven park in 1935 and then was launched as a fairy-tale forest in 1952. Now, 66 years later it is one of the most infamous attractions in The Netherlands with some of the world’s best rides! Let’s see what makes Efteling so incredibly unique… Continue reading “Distinctly Dutch, Authentically Efteling”
