New for the 2015 season, Cedar Point transformed their notoriously painful stand-up coaster, Mantis, into a floorless experience.

After just reopening last year, Kentucky Kingdom has already gotten to a good start to make their park worth visiting again. Last week, the park announced their new-for-2016 roller coaster, Storm Chaser. By the looks of it, the ride will be a great addition to the park.
Dollywood fans, it's time to get excited. The park has hinted that their 2016 coaster will be the biggest addition to Dollywood in its 30 year history.
Ever since Carowinds announced their record-breaking Giga Coaster last fall, I've been anticipating its opening. Finally, I made it to the park last week to check it out. Believe me, I "felt the sting."
