Guest Review of Skyrush @ Hersheypark

Guest reviewer Aric has returned with another in-depth review. He was one of the first to ride Hersheypark’s new Skyrush roller coaster. [divider] I came to Hersheypark to ride Skyrush after a day spent using Fast Lane at Cedar Point. While in Sandusky, my daughter and I were treated to what essentially amounted to no lines on the big three, Millennium Force, Top Thrill Dragster, and my pers...[Read More]

Titan at Six Flags Over Texas | Roller Coaster Reviews

I was overcome by euphoria. For a moment, there was just so much joy that I was speechless. All of that emotion/thoughts and Titan had only begun. To be fair, Six Flags Over Texas’ hyper coaster Titan was only partially responsible for me state of nirvana. As I climbed the orange skyscraper’s 245′ lift hill, I had an excellent view of the surround area including the beautiful Cow...[Read More]

Intimidator @ Carowinds | Roller Coaster Reviews

Someone says, “This was a bad idea.” Another rider says, “I think I can see Atlanta”. Meanwhile, Intimidator’s black and red NASCAR-themed train ascend further and further into the sky. I look over my left shoulder and I can see Charlotte’s cluster of skyscrapers in the distance. Most of the other riders are glued to their seats bracing for the ensuing plunge. T...[Read More]

Goliath @ Six Flags Magic Mountain | Coaster Reviews

Blacking out. I’ve heard coaster enthusiasts mention that they’d experienced such intense g-forces that they blacked out. I’ve ridden many coasters in my time, but I couldn’t recall ever blacking out (nor did I want to). Until I rode Goliath last summer. It had other plans. Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Goliath (not to be confused with Georgia’s Goliath) is one of the tallest roller coast...[Read More]

Goliath @ Six Flags Over Georgia | Coaster Reviews

Take A Spin on Goliath – The Jewel of the SouthEast  Goliath is a towering hyper coaster built at Six Flags Over Georgia in 2006. It may mark the end of an era for Six Flags. Newly appointed CEO Mark Shapiro pointed at the $20 million roller coaster in an interview and said “No more of those.” The year it was built Dan Snyder and Mark Shapiro assumed control of Six Flags. They pl...[Read More]

Raging Bull @ Six Flags Great America

Raging Bull @ Six Flags Great America | Coaster Reviews Raging Bull’s a Bolliger & Mabillard hypercoaster from the same designers of the popular Nitro at Six Flags Great Adventure and Apollo’s Chariot at Busch Gardens Europe. So I was excited when I arrived at Great America on a dreary day in 2006. Raging Bull has a more compact twister-style layout and I was curious how it matched...[Read More]

Nitro @ Six Flags Great Adventure | Coaster Reviews

Take a Spin on Six Flag’s Most Acclaimed Roller Coaster Nitro is a popular hyper coaster that completes Six Flags Great Adventure’s trinity of top-notch roller coasters. Kingda Ka, El Toro, and Nitro make Great Adventure a must visit destination for coaster enthusiasts.

Superman The Ride at Six Flags New England Review

Review of Superman The Ride at Six Flags New England (Formerly Superman: Ride of Steel and Bizarro)  A Heroic Hyper Coaster That Lives Up to Its Lofty Reputation I don’t give out a lot of 10’s. But this ladies and gentlemen, deserves a 10. It’s reputation was huge and I figured it would be better than the other coasters by the same name, I just didn’t know it was going to b...[Read More]

Steel Force @ Dorney Park | Coaster Reviews

Does Steel Force Live up to its Lofty Reputation?Steel Force dominates the skyline at Dorney. Thunderhawk is just dwarfed by the 200 foot steel monster. It’s a visual testament to how far coasters have come. I stepped aboard the uninteresting Morgan trains and enjoyed the nice long ride up the peak. The first drop wasn’t as steep as I thought it would be and the tunnel was just so-so. ...[Read More]

Magnum XL-200 @ Cedar Point | Coaster Reviews

The Revolutionary Coaster that Started A New EraAfter being encouraged to make Magnum my 100th coaster, I went against the advice and just rushed to Millennium Force instead. I wish I would’ve listened to the advice because on my trip to Cedar Point, Magnum stole the show. The hype for the prototypical hyper coaster (coasters over 200 feet tall) was huge. I’d look at on-ride footage an...[Read More]
