In Defense of Rougarou

Here’s the hottest take we’ve got:

We think Rougarou is the best Floorless coaster in the USA and possibly the World.

Is it? That’s irrelevant – there’s no true way to measure that figure anyway. This article, like all “best/worst” statements, are always subjective and merely an opinion. But to say we, personally, enjoy this more than any other Floorless coaster, is a fact – and here’s why:

Kolmården 2021 – Nature and Wildfire

Besides being known for Ikea, Spotify and H&M, Sweden can show off with its green landscapes! So what would be a visit to the country without going to explore the forest? To be fair, we didn’t go hiking or wildlife spotting. But we did see quite some animals and trees in the town of Kolmården! Plus, we saw an unusual sight in Europe: an RMC Topper Track!

All Disney Coasters – Ranked

On our 2019 trip to China, we didn’t plan on riding Rex’s Racer at Shanghai Disneyland. The new credit was tempting, but we assumed the line would be too long for us to want to take time away from all of the superb rides Shanghai Disneyland has to offer – after all, we already had the Paris and Hong Kong ones.

On Shanghai Disneyland day the crowds were light, and when we checked out the new Toy Story Land we couldn’t help but notice Rex’s Racer going out with empty seats. “Eh, why not” we said. After riding, it occurred to us that we’ve now ridden every coaster Disney has ever built – but not for long. Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleds will open at Hong Kong Disneyland before we know it, and with no plans for a Hong Kong Disney visit in our near future, we knew our every-Disney-coaster-ridden claim had an expiration date on it.

Naturally we decided to write an article ranking all operating Disney coasters – it may have taken 2 years for us to get around to it, but we’ve finally put it together. As Califloridian DLP passholders, we take our Disney coasters seriously, and with 30-ish coasters we had a lot to consider.

The Backside of Magic – Magic Mountain Fall 2021

Due to the pandemic our last visit to Six Flags Magic Mountain (Sean and Alex) was early 2020. We were so excited to head back and spend a day and night at the Valencia theme park. The housing development behind the park that’s currently under construction provides some great views of the park. Let’s see how Magic Mountain’s collection of coasters is holding up!
