September 19, 2023 - This is the time of year when I am busy visiting amusement parks. So far this summer, I have been on over 100 European roller coasters, which is not bad considering that I live and work in the United States. But despite the park visits, I had a little time to add Spain's Port Aventura, home to eight roller coasters.

July 16, 2023 - Now that the redesign is about done, I have time to start adding new parks.   Ferrari Land is home to Red Force, the world's third tallest and fourth fastest roller coaster.

April 26, 2023 - I must show you why I haven't been working on this page.  I have been working on a TOTAL REDESIGN of the website!  You can preview the new look and feel of on the Six Flags AstroWorld and Six Flags Darien Lake pages.  Please tell me what you think of them.  I look forward to your feedback.

September 27, 2022 - I really should delete this page... I never update it.  It looks like I haven't updated the website since March, but I have done a lot.  I just forget to post about it here!  This summer, I visited a wide variety of amusement parks in the United States, The Netherlands, and Spain.  So if you want more pictures and videos, I have plenty to show you!

Here are a few things I recently added to the website: Japan's Tobu Zoo is home to three interesting coasters.  I haven't finished all of the Fuji-Q Highland pictures, but there are a lot of new Do-Dodonpa shots to give you a taste of my visit there.  And if you like videos, please the YouTube page because there are a lot of new videos.  I especially love the POV videos of RailBlazer.  I permission to ride some of California's Great America's coasters with a camera, so there are some nice on-ride videos for you to see.  But please don't do this yourself... This was done under close supervision of the park and was done when the park was closed to the public.  Trying to use a simple cell phone on a coaster is dangerous, stupid, and probably against most park's policies.

March 22, 2022 - Last time I posted on this page, I added pictures from some Disney parks in Florida.  Today, I am adding a bunch of new pictures from a Disney park in Japan!  Tokyo Disneyland hasn't added any roller coasters in a few years, but our last visit there was nearly 20 years ago, so those old Disney pictures needed updated!  I have been working behind-the-scenes on a major update to, so I haven't finish the Disney Sea pages yet, but check back soon to see the adjacent park that some people consider the best of all of the Disney theme parks!

January 11, 2022 - Let's kick the year off with some Disney updates.  I recently added the picturesque Slinky Dog Dash at Disney's Hollywood Studios, the park originally known as Disney-MGM Studios, the swaying Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, and the under-construction TRON Lightcycle Run which is also at the Magic Kingdom.  I hope you like Disney parks, because I visited Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo DisneySea, and Shanghai Disneyland, so there will be a lot of Disney coasters coming to the Gallery this year!

October 2, 2021 - I visited Cypress Gardens on its last weekend of operation, but I hadn't been back since it was converted to LEGOLAND Florida.  I finally got around to visiting the new version of the park, so you can finally see the updated Dragon, Flying School, Coastersaurus, and the new Great LEGO Chase.

I hope you like Floridan amusement parks... I just visited Walt Disney World, and I'll be adding a bunch of Disney coaster pictures next!

March 22, 2021 - I'll share a couple of updates today: one is a new park, one is new coasters at an existing park in  The new park is so small that it only has one tiny coaster.  Tom Foolerys Amusement Park in the Wisconsin Dells has a small kiddie coaster.  Even though it is small, I loved this coaster... but it may be because I am a pilot and love roller coasters that look like airplanes.

The other news this week is that I updated the Busch Gardens Tampa section of the Gallery.  Three new coasters had been built since my last visit to Tampa, so I finally have shots of Air Grover, Cheetah Hunt, and Cobra's Curse.

December 17, 2020 - I have been adding pictures and videos throughout the website, but I haven't added a brand new park in a while.  Let me change that... The PowerPlay Family Entertainment Center in Kansas City, Missouri is a FEC that sits in an old Best Buy store.  It is home to one small coaster.

July 16, 2020 - The goal of is to document every roller coaster, no matter how small it is.  Today's addition is the Incredible Spin Coaster at St. Louis's Incredible Pizza Company.  It's a small coaster built by SBF Visa Group that runs indoors inside a Family Entertainment Center.  With nearly 300 SBF Visa coasters now in operation, their Compact Spinning Coaster (Models MX608, MX609, and MX612) is one of the most copied roller coaster designs ever.  I'll be adding more examples of this model very soon!

I know that I am a little late to the party, but has been on Instagram for over a year now.  If you follow CoasterGallery on Instagram, you will see previews of new pictures, get the chance to play the "Guess The Coaster" game, and get a little glimpse into the amusement park travels of Joel Rogers.  However, you won't see any dumb filters of pictures of my meals.

May 16, 2020 - Today's release is Yokohama Cosmoworld, an amusement park near Tokyo that is home to three very interesting roller coasters.  Their most photogenic ride is the famous Diving Coaster Vanish!, a thrill ride that is often called an "Underwater Roller Coaster".  Be sure to see the video of Diving Coaster Vanish! plunging into the water.  I hope you subscribe to my Youtube Channel for a variety of roller coaster videos.

April 23, 2020 - Most amusement parks are closed because of COVID-19, but I hope that my pictures are a way to help soften this loss.  Today's park is Hanayashiki, Japan's oldest amusement park.  It started in 1853 and is small but incredibly densely packed with rides.  The park is ringed by Roller Coaster (ローラーコースター), the first coaster built by TOGO and the oldest coaster in Japan.

Check back in a few days because the next thing to be added is the Diving Coaster Vanish! "underwater" coaster.

April 11, 2020 - I am still "social distancing" at home, so get ready for more pictures!  Japan's Himeji Central Park is the latest addition.  It consists of a large safari park, a water park, and an amusement park with five roller coasters.  The park has Japan's first B & M, an unusual 3-inversion TOGO, an old Intamin Free Fall, and two odd coasters that were made in Japan.

March 28, 2020 - Since I am self-quarantined as the world shuts down over COVID-19, I now have a lot of free time to upload some more pictures and videos!  Today's addition is the Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens near Nagoya, Japan.  The large zoo has a small amusement park with two roller coasters.  It is home to Slope Shooter, Japan's third oldest operating roller coaster and the world's youngest side-friction coaster.  Be sure to check out the video of this one-of-a-kind roller coaster!
