Nick: Sea World has filed the first permits for their 2020 Project with the Orange County government. Let’s take a peek and see what we can uncover!
Derrion: Hey Coaster Royalty! It’s been a while since we did a Six Flags Magic Mountain park update. This has been a very slow winter, with not much change from week to week. However, it does look like change is on the horizon with new additions in the park (and a West Coast Racers construction update).
While some general details were announced on March 1st, the RMC conversion of Gwazi still largely remains a mystery. Now, thanks to a document recently filed with the FAA, we can confirm at least one stat of the new coaster – it will be 210 feet tall!
Sean: Today we bring you coverage from a new region! Welcome to one of the world’s largest looping coasters! Kennywood’s Steel Curtain will feature 9 inversions, most of which are quite unique. Let’s take a look at the the yellow and black beast under construction! Continue reading “MEGA Steel Curtain Update – March 2019”

Alexander: It’s great to be back in California for a little bit! Our 3-day visit included visits to all of our LA-area favs, starting with Knott’s Berry Farm! It’s been about 4 months since our last visit, and we’re seeing a lot of positive changes!

Continue reading “Disneyland Paris Update – February 2019”
Alexander: As theme park food festivals rapidly become commonplace (even among regional parks), the gold standard is widely regarded to be Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival. While it’s certainly the most famous, popular, and expensive theme park food festival, we’d like to argue against it being the best.
Enter: SeaWorld’s 7 Seas Food Festival.
