Seems like there isn't a lot of UK people on here :/ not cool. There should be more!

I'm excited for this

PortAventura

No Nigloland, no Toverland, but the rest looks rather good. Duinrell is confirmed and Port Aventura has put up the first signs promoting a major new attraction in 2012, so that looks good as well...

My highlights.

A Mack mega coaster, eh? That's something I'd like to see. I've always thought we needed more non-looping coasters, and I'm glad we're out of this mentality that it had to be 200ft (60m) high it it was steel.

Another notable coaster 2012 coaster is an Intamin Watercoaster named 'Divertical' at Mirabilandia in Italy.

Here's all of the 2012 European coasters on this RCDB link; There's only a few coasters with no name yet, and not much info on them.

Wouldn't construction already have begun on the Port Aventura coaster? A megacoaster isn't a small proposition.

I was in the Bayern Park and have to say, that's a great park! For youth and old. But in comparison with the skyline park i'd prefer it because it's more exciting for the young generation with the bigger offer of attractions.
