Being a Brit I'll be highly predictable and say the yet unnamed coaster at Alton Towers. Outlaw Run does look amazing but not sure how long it'll be until I can get there. Other than those 2, nothing else "tickles my fancy" (what does that saying really mean?).

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I just don't trust Alton after all the overhype of thirteen and subterra.

Sub-Terra I don't think was overhyped, it was a medium investment and fits the bill fine. Th13teen I think has been discussed to death and the bottom line is - family ride marketed wrong.

This is in a different league. I think when you see a ride with at least 8 inversions, it's going to be a little more substantial.

:P

I enjoyed Sub Terra when it opened but have yet to go on it since the improvements. Thirteen was over hyped indeed and the coaster layout leaves a lot to be desired although I still really enjoy the drop (which is far superior to Verbolten), however after looking closely at the plans for SW7 I think the UK is getting one of the most satisfying coasters in recent years, especially in terms of ride length which is usually economically short here.

Just a recap on how SW7 should turn out (after it leaves the building containing the secret "thingy"), POV at 3:00.

I'm really interested in Iron Rattler and seeing how it will turn out. Outlaw Run is up there too.

The two coasters I really want to hit in 2013 are Gatekeeper and Outlaw Run, although Iron Rattler looks great as well. I am curious to see how YOLOcoaster turns out at SFMM.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

Sw7 is going to be amazing. Overhype can't happen as its going to be worth it. Thirteen was marketed totally wrong, if you take it for what it is its amazing.

So the new Alton ride for me, predictably, I can't wait.

I think the most exciting two projects for 2013 are Outlaw Run and SW7.

SW7 should combine good theming, indoor and outdoor elements, aswell as being a long ride - which is something that has been craved at Alton Towers for years!

:)


Agreed!

It's very long, with an apparently awesome indoor, then essentially two outdoor sections with 8 inversions.

I've got a feeling it'll be a bit of a dark horse and surprise people.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

So far I'm kind of underwhelmed with the 2013 offerings except the to RMC coasters. Most likely I'll make an attempt to make my first visit to Silver Dollar City to check out Outlaw Run. Otherwise I think 2013 will be a quiet year for me.

I don't have a real new coaster for 2013 but it reopens in 2013 Turbine. Kinda looking forward to ride a classic Schwarzkopf Shuttle looping. Second thing I'm looking forward to is a non-coaster: Chiapas the new Log-flume ride at Phantasialand. Still a good looking year to look forward to. ;)
Must admit that there are some coasters in America that look great. (like the Yolocoaster, Gatekeeper, Outlaw run and Iron Rattler)
Roller Coaster Traveler 3 Bross Parks of 2014: Efteling, Heide park, Movie park (D), Walibi NL, Phantasialand, Tripsdrill, Holiday park, Toverlan, Europa park.
