    What upcoming new credit are you most excited about?

    Obvious choice for me is Fly, but I'm more excited for Rookburgh as a whole as opposed to just the cred. Gonna be basic though and go for the Belgian duo too for next year as the most exciting for-me things; moreso Walibi Belgium's one. Haven't got anything else in the pipeline and it's too...

    Nigloland | Unknown | Unknown | 2021

    Here's another view from the wonderful Niglofans... I haven't see any real confirmation about what the layout could be yet - doesn't seem like anyone has much of a clue right now?!

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    No, I didn't know that was a legal requirement... Nor do I envy teachers for having to upload their work either. I'm not convinced though. There is no way a child at the age of say, 6 or 7, can get anywhere near the same level of teaching quality with distance learning as they would with face...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Genuine question for those who suggest closing schools: how do you practically suggest children receiving an education if schools close down? Online learning is not the answer for younger children. And it's still not the best answer for teenagers either. Home schooling is only an option for the...

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    In fairness, Crazycoaster did say tend to, so that means they is of course a couple of exceptions! ;) (Awaits posts showing every other invert having airtime hills because I'm a basic B&Mer)

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    Those fat supports look so weird. And they're so big too. I guess you could call them...Monster supports...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Forgive me for not including a direct source, but it's all over social media... All Belgian parks have to now close. Zoos are excluded from the restrictions, but any indoor spaces at zoos do have to close. Not sure exactly what that means for Bellewaerde, and whether they can something similar...

    Parc du Bocasse | Unknown | Vekoma SFC | 2021

    Perfect addition for the park! Hopefully they manage to theme it for opening too, as their recent theming jobs have been great!

    Energylandia | Abyssus | Vekoma Shockwave+ | 2021

    I know Covid slowed them down and everything, but I can't be the only one thinking that Energylandia still would have struggled to complete and open Aqaulantis for this year, right? I mean, it's still not finished now! And it doesn't lend itself to be one of those 'open year 1, open with theming...

    Looks like Port Aventura is closed between today and 30th October following new restrictions:

    Walibi Belgium | Unknown | Intamin Mega Coaster | 2021

    I've heard the first train is being delivered this month, so presumably pull throughs will start during closed season and first tests could be November/December time.

    Futuroscope announces €304m expansion plan

    It feels similar to when Walibi Belgium (which of course are also under Compagnie des Alpes) announced their 5 year investment strategy back in 2017(?) for 2018-2023. This has more detail (or at least, it seems that way), but Walibi's plans showed when every area would be getting a refresh, a...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Efteling are removing Polka Marina, one of the smaller flat rides near Python, and replacing it with a children's play area: Sounds like there's a big focus on accessibility and making it suitable for anyone with disabilities. Intrigued by what the 'roller coaster inspired elements' could...

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    I think this project is so unlike that even @Matt N has lost hope in it now ;)
