    Lightning Rod Status

    It's a real shame it's come to this. I'm very lucky to have managed to ride it when I did, it instantly became my number 1 coaster and still sits 3rd. This was prior to the changes that were made during the 2017? season. Clearly the ride needs fixing, if this is the only way to save a multi...

    Rank the RMC inversions

    1 - Wildfire's Zero-G Stall - Not only the best of RMC's repertoire, but clearly the worlds best inversion as well. Nothing else provides the perfect mix of speed, hang, flip and floater. All whilst on a wooden coaster with the best view from a coaster ever. The Tina Turner of inversions. 2 -...

    Paultons Park | Tornado Springs | New Area | 2021

    Family GG. That's the answer every time we speculate on Paultons I thought? ?

    Your Favourite Ever CF Lives

    Oh yeah that was a good one, loads of people dressed up that year too. Sprouts were awful, I haven't made them again ?

    Your Favourite Ever CF Lives

    Funnily enough I haven't actually been on that many Lives, especially in the last few years, the dates always seem to clash with when I have my little ones and while I can drag the 9 yr old to most places, the 6 year old is too small and afraid unfortunately. Fortunately, the Lives I have been...

    Your longest theme park hiatus?

    The current situation for me, last park visit was 15th September 2019, yet to get out to a park but starting to make plans for a trip somewhere in the UK. I've never gone a year before but hopefully I'll get somewhere in the next month.

    Wodan vs Troy

    Do I not exist anymore? Troy is slightly better than Wodan as a ride imo, but I love Wodan's theming.

    Drayton Manor sold to Looping Group (page 5)

    Twister @ Grona Lund is around the size of that plot but no out and back woodie would fit, not even the small ones like Wooden Warrior. Any ground up woodie, or new Eurofighter would be too expensive, Rob is 100% right. It would have to be 2nd hand so that rules out wood.

    Drayton Manor sold to Looping Group (page 5)

    G force's footprint was absolutely tiny, there's a reason why it had that awful lift hill. Whatever goes in there will be small and boring. There's also no chance of it integrating with Thomas Land as they would need to move the entrance, which would cost as much as a small coaster.

    Energylandia | Abyssus | Vekoma Shockwave+ | 2021

    Coaster looks fab, not shedding any tears if it's delayed until next year, the area itself looks a way off from the latest pics. Good to see EL are reducing the walking on the big two, the Hyperion one was desperately needed. The vests on these are much better than the B&M ones, they don't...

    WTF Merlin?

    SBR is a good, obtainable sauce here in the Uk, if I'm struggling with getting my fave then there aren't many others I'll pop out to the shops and get. WTF Merlin! Start using SBR in Woodcutters.
