Sven: After years of looking forward to California’s theme parks, I finally took the flight to Los Angeles in February to discover some of the States’ most interesting theme parks. Yes, European Coaster Kings visited five of LA’s major parks to ride its coasters and more. Get ready for my experience at the several parks and how I compare them to our parks in Europe. I start off with Universal Studios Hollywood. Continue reading “ECK goes CCK: Universal Studios Hollywood”
Sven: Hey everyone! Today we’re launching our second vlog post! Discover more about Europe’s theme parks not only by our ECK blog post but with our new videos too! We launched our first one last year and now we have a brand new waiting for you. Check out the German theme parks!
Alexander: For a fun 1-day trip from Southern California, Sean and I decided to pay a visit to Salt Lake City’s Lagoon Amusement Park – “The Country’s Largest Family-Owned Amusement Park”!
It’s been less than 2 years since my last visit to Lagoon, but much has changed already! Let’s go see!
Knott’s Scary Farm, the first and largest Halloween event in Southern California has revealed exclusive and frightening new details for the return of its 46th season during a special appearance at the fan-favorite event Midsummer Scream in Long Beach. The Knott’s entertainment team held an exclusive panel for fans featuring a few of the Scary Farm masterminds including maze and set designers, producers along with costuming and makeup to share insight on what’s lurking in the fog for 2018.

Sean: We just launched a new Six Flags Magic Mountain Update last weekend but we like to follow up with another quick update! In this update we’ll take a further look at the Cyclone Bay construction, CraZanity, and more!
Alexander: We’re back at the Thrill Capital of the World. We’ve got a great big Magic Mountain update for you all! Cyclone Bay, CraZanity, Jammin’ Bumpers, and more!
Nick: Today we stopped by SeaWorld Orlando to take a look at the progress of Infinity Falls, their new world class rapids ride opening later this summer. Crews are still hard at work finishing up the landscaping and theming around the attraction, so an opening date shouldn’t be too far off!
Sven: Yesterday we went to a theme park that you probably never heard about: Parc Saint Paul. It is one of the parks in Europe that opened a decent coaster this year so we had to test it out. Let’s talk about Wood Express, the newest Gravitykraft coaster of Europe! Continue reading “Wood Express at Parc Saint Paul”
Sean: We needed a day in the sun with a beer and some coasters after a long week at work, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom was the perfect solution. The park was lightly crowded with plenty of re-ride opportunities! Too bad that some major attractions at the park were closed. Read on for a trip report/ park update with Harley Quinn footage! Continue reading “Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Update – July 18th 2018”
Alexander: Since we love lists, we thought it was time for something a little different: a ranking of all 50 States, in order of coaster quality.
Quality is key, here; it would be very easy to just list states based on # of coasters, but that wouldn’t be very interesting. We’ve compiled our countdown based on a comprehensive look at each state and its coasters, carefully scrutinizing each one down to every possible comparison.
We know which states have more or less; today we consider which are best. Continue reading “Top 50 Coaster States”
