Where have I been? What’s going on?

Hi all, apologies for the long delay between posts.

As many of you know, I run the site pretty much solo, although I’ve very fortunate to have amazing friends who support me and join me on the journey through various trips and video contributions, such as Jay! The project with Coastin.net is still going strong, and for those following the Youtube I’m sure you’ve seen a whole host of new POV’s go online too. I run the site because I love the industry, and because I want to give back to something I’ve loved my entire life,  and the incredible parks out there. This takes time as you can imagine! I’ll be starting a new set of park guides, as well as filming a LOT of new content at brand new parks in the coming weeks. Read more...

Why events are so important to the Theme Park industry

This is a subject that’s been crossing my mind for a little while now, especially after seeing the backlash to certain parks announcing new, unique events rather than new rides for 2019. It feels to myself as if a lot of people expect every park to be able to invest in multi million pound rides and attractions every year like in RCT/Planet Coaster. Now I love RCT, and Planet Coaster, I grew up playing RCT every day of my childhood, but running a theme park isn’t as simple as a click of a button. While I wouldn’t want to speculate on every little detail, it boils down to something many enthusiasts often forget. Read more...

Is This The World’s Scariest Tower Ride?

Now don’t get me wrong here, I love drop towers, and I love thrill rides – but frequently I see the words of “Drop Tower” and “terrifying” in the same sentence and it got me wondering, what is the world’s scariest tower ride? Whether that be shot or drop, or even both. Of course, in my honest opinion there is only 1 answer there, located in the German village or Bruhl lies a world class theme park called Phantasialand, a park full of intricate theming everywhere you look, world class coasters and stunning dark rides. While no ride at the park breaks the 220ft marker, something many USA amusement parks offer, and indeed some European parks too – there lies what I believe could be the world’s most intense tower ride.

A talk about how the new direction is going – A new series Coastindustry and more!

Good evening all!

Quite a few things to talk about tonight so I am going to break this post into several pieces – I do hope you enjoy!

Coming soon!

I’m thrilled to announce I am currently working on a series called Coastindustry.

The whole point of Coastindustry is to keep the site, and YouTube channel up to date and informative, but without overloading the network with multiple articles/videos. As you all know I don’t do click bait, and what you see is what you get with Coastin.net. This is a project I am incredibly proud of throughout, and the direction things have been taking these last few weeks after making changes (Please click here if you missed this article!) while I am still 100% working out how I shall be presenting the series on YouTube I fully intend to have each month’s episode live on the final Friday of each month. My aim is to make each video around 20-25 minutes long, however this will depend a lot on the details given, and of course news/things to talk about for that month. I feel this will be giving some extra stability to the POV content and event videos I have been sharing and further bring another professional outlook to the channel – and will be presented in such a way.

Coastin.net – An honest look to the future.

Good afternoon! I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!

First of all before we begin, a massive thank you to everyone who’s been a part of the journey so far, this post may be a little bit long so please do stick with me throughout!

Over the past few weeks, I have been thinking about the future of the site and how I would like to turn it into what I’d visioned; a dedicated, committed theme park resource, with a lot of written info, reviews of attractions, events, as well as behind the scenes footage and a huge selection on-ride and off-ride POV content. As some of you may have noticed I began this with the first 2 park guides, with a 3rd (And more) on the way very soon. As well as this I have invested in a GoPro for filming on rides properly, safely and with authorisation. Read more...
