    I'll guess the Flitzer at Playland's Castaway Cove.



    Yep, you got it.

    That was a long one lol.

    Just curious, which part does it look like?

    (aka, nope!)

  1.  
    Because of the colors I'm going to guess Xcelerator @ Knotts?

    Beat me to it. Had to look up the spelling but I think TE's right.

    For the sake of completeness though I'll guess a color shifted Speed Monster @ Tunsenfryd

    Sure did. Your flickr is one of the few with consistently excellent coaster photography that I can yank at high resolution. Several of your shots are in rotation on my coaster-themed desktop wallpaper sets both at home and at work, hope you don't mind ;)

    Lol you need to do a bit more studying up on your coasters ;) Give us the best you got.

    ^I know, it was a stupid guess, lol. Thought I'd throw it out there, I figured it was wrong. :)



    Shouldn't be to hard, pretty simple one if you ask me. ;)

    Well when you put it like that...

    Anyway, I'm going to guess it's that Aquatrax, Atlantis Adventure.

    Well that was faster than I'd hoped. lol
    You're up. :)

    Hum, looks like a Zierer Force coaster or something... I don't know what coaster it is though.

    Xpress, no.

    Hint, the car design you see in the upper corner is not of a worm/caterpillar, but of a mouse. Also, RCDb won't help in finding an indentification photo to compare against.

    Since no one seems to be getting it, I will give a final hint which should make it easy to solve.

    As of today, this is one of only two roller coasters in operation in/near the Eternal City.

    Mini Mouse Oasi Park

    Had been checking a lot of Italian coasters, but not this one (which I think is correct)

    Well I recognized that sidewinder on a "Wild [...]". I spent a while finding the other part, after searching "Wild Train" from PAX. I had seen Wild Wind in the Random Coaster section on RCDB a long time ago.

    Here's a hard one:

    Lightning Coaster, Nasu Highland Park Japan

    This is killing me. I've seen that coaster, and I know that there's some weirdness in its story that's making it not come up when I do the obvious search on rcdb. Must. Remember.

    AH! Lightning Coaster. Nasu Highland Park. That weird Meisho/Schwarzkopf half-collab thing.

    [edit]Damn. Beaten by 2 minutes.[/edit]

    No more linking to rcdb images directly. You can cheat if you know how. ;-)

    No-one is probably gonna believe me, but I actually didn't see that. I found it by assuming it was a meisho, and it was in japan. Searched on rcdb, and sorted by height. It was one of the taller ones, so wasn't too hard to find. Kind of sucks there was an easier way though.

    ^I believe you; I got it in a similar way. I'd seen it before somewhere on the net and knew it was SBNO, and a half-Schwarzkopf, so I advance-searched RCDB for SBNO coasters in Japan and got a short list. Scrolled, recognized the name, double checked the image. Took maybe 5 minutes.

    That said, it would help prevent cheating if we forbid direct linking RCDB images. Rather than banning them outright (I mean really, is there a better source for obscure coaster images?), if you still want to use an RCDB image, why don't we insist on using www.tinypic.com? Click the little radio button for URL and just plug in the direct link to the RCDB image. It re-uploads it to tinypic and blitzes the filename of useful information.

    http://i32.tinypic.com/23h0gpg.jpg is a little more cryptic than http://cache.rcdb.com/pictures/picmax/p14470.jpg, wouldn't you say?
