We've also added a new park, Clementon Park & Splash World, a small park in New Jersey with a nice wooden coaster and a large log flume. Outside the United States, we have also added Rainbow MagicLand, a park just outside of the world-famous city of Rome in Italy. Lastly, Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi has been added.

Over the past few months we’ve been busy behind the scenes, continuing to update both our Park and Ride Gallery Lists in what seems to be a never-ending battle to cover everything we can.

One park in the United Kingdom, which is known for their world record of the most people riding a roller coaster naked, is changing their code to accommodate many patrons who have been complaining over the years. According to the Telegram, Adventure Island located in Southend has implemented a new code where men must keep their shirts on at all times while inside the park.

April 13, 2014 - CrazyCoasterGirl

With all of the SeaWorld/Blackfish debate. lets take a look back at the proposal that has now been put on the shelf until later this year.

NAMTAB Forever headed to Six Flags Over Texas

Popular inverted roller coaster to receive backwards vehicles this summer

April 11, 2014 - Kaiju

Six Flags Over Texas has announced that for the summer of 2014, they will be turning the popular Batman inverted coaster in reverse. Since the ride was first introduced in 1999, it has delivered countless thrills that have given riders a unique floorless perspective as they hung from the track above. When the ride reopens, it will feature a new train that sends riders backwards through its 2700 feet of track. First introduced at Six Flags Great America in 2013, Batman Backwards (NAMTAB) has been received as a brilliant modification to an already outstanding ride. Following the opening of Batman Backwards at sister park Six Flags Magic Mountain in California, Six Flags Over Texas revealed that the popular revision to the coaster would be making its way to Arlington for a limited time in Summer 2014.
