Lots of new listings on the site, as more parks open for the 2006 season. Reader Keelin Haw has posted a trip report on Busch Gardens Williamsburg's new show, Emerald Beat. Also, we've opened up the listings for Goliath, the new B&M megacoaster at Six Flags Over Georgia and Timber Tower, the new Huss tower at Tennessee's Dollywood. Finally, not to forget you fans from Europe, Stealth the new Intamin launch coaster at the U.K.'s Thorpe Park is now available for rating and review, too.

Readers' Opinions

We just got back from Dollywood and Timber Tower had not opened yet. It should be up and running by April 7th. Personally, I wasn't impressed with what I saw. It is much shorter and smaller around than you would think They were still running test with the test dummies and It looked a little blah. Now I could certainly be wrong, it wouldn't be the first time. I am just giving an opinion based on seeing not riding. Also the new restaurant being built next to it hasn't opened yet.
