    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    The media and political sensation does seem to be exaggerated going by figures at the moment: https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/deaths If we consider deaths, they have not even reached the figures around 4th of July when we were happy to ease restrictions. Now indeed those figures MAY go up...

    Maybe she just wanted to get to the front of the queue quickly.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    I was in Blackpool the last few days. Pleasure Beach good, most people adhering to the rules. Good weather. However at the pier in the evening and surrounding areas no one gives a crap anymore. I can sort of understand it. People want to enjoy themselves. People too close to each other and most...

    Dreamworld Australia To Close Tower Of Terror

    One of those coasters I saw in RCT 20 years ago and thought wow looks cool. But will probably never ride.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Well, I disagree and I could barely stomach wearing one throughout 2 1/2 hours Tenet which was a dreadful film to make matters worse. I won't be going to the cinema most likely again in this situation. I think I'm not the only one and studios are taking note, constantly pushing their big movies...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Loopings is reporting that Disneyland Paris is heavily reducing opening times. From 5th October during the week the studios park is only open between 11am and 4pm, which is even shorter than the shortest weekday opening hours at Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Alton Towers. I think forcing people...

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster | 2020

    It looks better than I thought it would going by the short terrible 1991 video camera footage.

    Port Aventura / La Liga Theme Park

    So boring and dull. Well for me at least. I can't say that watching sport (Olympics / Euros) has been the most important thing missing from my life this year. Hardly noticed its absence to be honest.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Colossus is such a poor capacity throughput performing coaster at the best of times without a pandemic.

    "Now Showing"

    Spiderman: Far from home (2019) Really bad. It all seems very childish to me. Some of the stuff such as the mid and post credits scenes were just eye rolling annoying I thought - yes I made it that far, not sure how. Quite patronising towards the audience with almost every character...

    "Now Showing"

    My frustration with the movie has actually grown since I saw it. It really annoys me as Nolan more than thoroughly entertained me with his Batman movies. In fact I think they are on par with the original Richard Donner Superman movies and only Infinity War from Marvel was ever as good as all...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    3000 cases today. Last time we had that in the UK was May 22nd as far as I can see. So if we have to go by only that we are back at square one. Time to roll out the daily government covid updates? Kids back off school? Furlough to infinity and beyond? People staying home? Theme parks closing...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    That's an understatement. The reason we are here is because humans evolved in family circles. Looking at the graphs, it could be that the UK will follow France and we will soon possibly have far more daily cases than during lockdown if that happens. Deaths are way down which surely is a far...

    Your Wacky Worm Count.

    Since RCDB doesn't appear to list travelling wacky worms as pointed out and coasterpedia only lists 62 Wacky worms it would be interesting to know how people who add them to their coaster credit count ensure it's not the same one since I reckon many will be exchanged by funfair owners over the...

    "Now Showing"

    Tenet (2020) Not a big Nolan fan at all. I only really like his Dark Knight movies. In fact I love them. To me this was more of the same stuff he does in his other movies: little emotion, no humour, too much tell and not show (a real movie maker sin to me). There was far too much muffled unclear...

    What Is Your Dream Vehicle?

    A Tesla Model 3 would be great fun I agree. But with the lack of driving at the moment probably just keep my petrol 4x4 until it dies. It's only done 25K. Had bad experience with Diesel DPF filter on a Mazda 6 (which was otherwise a super car I drove for 8 years 100K) So probably eventually be...

    Your Wacky Worm Count.

    Zero. I like vloggers like Coaster Crazy but I don't understand the appeal to ride Wacky Worms and counting them at funfairs towards your coaster credits seems complete nonsense as it's probably the same one you're re-riding mostly. A Zierer Tivoli, Vekoma family boomerang and Vekoma junior...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    So will the police hand fines to the government who are partially suggesting people should go back to working from offices to prevent ghost city centres in the UK? 🤷‍♂️ https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-53942542

    A park with the best and worst coaster in one!

    There doesn't seem too much wrong with that Temple of Nighthawk / Crazy Bats coaster to me. Surely it could be as good as the likes of Vogelrok by adding on board audio, a few lights, props and wind machines.

    A park with the best and worst coaster in one!

    I think that is a good point. One can interpret the title of the thread exactly in that sense. I agree with the Ultimate in that light. It is superb, like a long journey, that takes you so far away from the main park and back again. The ground hugging race through the forest is like nothing...
