Kevin Lynch's insight:

If you are planning on going to Cedar Point in the near future, this year would be a great year to go. Even though no major roller coasters are going to be built (mainly because the park got GateKeeper last year), there are going to be some very cool new thrill rides built near the parks wood-steel hybrid coaster, Gemini.

Kevin Lynch's insight:

Who misses Batman Backwards at Six Flags Great America? It is now at Six Flags Magic Mountain, California. Which Six Flags park will it go to next year, we can only guess for now.

Kevin Lynch's insight:

This is an incredible new wooden coaster concept from one of the top designers of wooden coasters. It's essentially taking the idea of a seemingly incomplete track layout (like Vertical Velocity at Six Flags Great America), and using it on a wooden coaster. I wonder when and where the first of these coasters will be built.

Kevin Lynch's insight:

From the creators of Goliath, Six Flags Great America's newest attraction, will come one of the most insane wooden coasters the world will ever see! Pushing ever closer to that elusive 200-foot mark, this coaster will toss riders into extremely awkward positions, going upside down three times at high speeds. Wildfire scorches Kolmarden, Sweden in 2016.

Kevin Lynch's insight:

If you want the ultimate experience with roller coasters, Cedar Point is the place to go. Two of the park's steel coasters ranked in the top ten of Amusement Today's list for the "Top 50 Steel Coasters" during their annual Golden Ticket Awards. Among the two coasters was the number 1 spot.

Dindi, the records for highest roller coaster and longest roller coaster are held by two different coasters. The world's highest roller coaster is Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure, New Jersey. I will scoop a POV of it once I can find it.

Awesome! I have been to Cedar Point and it is certainly one of, if not the best theme park in the world.
Kristen Pham's comment, April 13, 2014 5:21 PM
I also have really enjoyed Cedar Point. I want to go back to go on their newest one. I'd recommend going to C.P. in Sandusky, Ohio, if you can. It's under a six hour drive away.
