    The disaster that is Journey To Hell Freak Nights at Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    I just did this last night and yes, it was an absolute let down. The story just wasn’t cohesive at all. Everyone was split into 3 or 4 groups and it seemed that each group went through each area in a different order which makes no sense if trying to tell a cohesive story. Most of the night was...

    Last Cred Review

    Fury - Bobbejaanland My expectations for this ride were for it to be thoroughly fun but nothing to write home about, but what a huge surprise this coaster was! Whilst I really like the unique concept where riders can vote with buttons on the restraints whether they want to ride forwards or...

    Untame My Heart | Trip Reports

    Great weekend! Good to meet some new people and do a couple new parks for me. As expected Untamed was super fab. Walibi as a whole is a bit ****e, almost zero atmosphere, minimal theming and those god damn wasps! Controversial opinion but Fury is potentially a top 10 coaster. Granted I’ve been...

    What is your favourite drop tower?

    Favourite standard drop tower is Detonator for the force. I wish I could say Lex Luthor, the height is intimidating but it’s just not that forceful at all. Overall favourite has to be Mystery Castle.

    Overrated and Underrated Roller Coasters

    Overrated - Nemesis - Yeah, it’s a good ride and aesthetically it’s amazing but for me I just don’t get the major hype for it. Underrated - Joris En De Draak - heard so much about it being a weak GCI. Granted, I haven’t ridden many GCIs but I found it to be really fab. Some nice pops of...

    Dubious Claims

    It would have been UK’s first multi launch coaster. I don’t have much of an issue with this one. I guess yeah technically Rev is a launch coaster but most people can differentiate between the launches on Icon and what is essentially a shove on Rev.

    Dubious Claims

    I’m pretty sure Thorpe Park always used to claim The Swarm had 5 inversions. Nah soz hun that incline loop definitely doesn’t invert.

    Six Flags: The most Magic of all the Mountains.

    Oh I’m not actually sure where it places yet, I think maybe about number 5. Haha thanks, well spotted, Martyr Defiled were top class.

    Six Flags: The most Magic of all the Mountains.

    Haha yup that is correct, it was the terms of the ticket, basically I went over with a friend who was working on the flight which had a two night layover. Next RMC will be Untamed in September and I’m even more excited now than I was before.

    Six Flags: The most Magic of all the Mountains.

    Recently returned from a trip to one of my major bucket list parks, Magic Mountain, and what a trip it was. With a friend in the airline industry I managed to get an ultra cheap flight out to LAX for a two night trip from the UK, an opportunity i absolutely could not turn down. Magic Mountain...

    Untame My Heart | WALIBI HOLLAND and BOBBEJAANLAND | 7th-8th Sep 2019

    Would you happen to have a spare space in your car? I will arrive at Amsterdam at 8.15am, so if you’re looking to spread the cost of the hire that would be great!

    Untame My Heart | WALIBI HOLLAND and BOBBEJAANLAND | 7th-8th Sep 2019

    So excited for this. I’ll be flying in from Manchester, arriving at Amsterdam at 8.15am, if anyone has space in their car for me that would be amazing and can help spread that cost. Flying home to Manchester at 9.15pm on the Sunday.

    Have you ever considered relocating to be nearer favourite parks?

    Ok I’ll correct my statement: “With the nearest concrete wasteland with dreadful rides and horrific maintenance being a 3 hour drive away”

    Have you ever considered relocating to be nearer favourite parks?

    I’m moving from the Aberdeen, Scotland with the nearest park (BPB) being a 5-6 hour drive to relocate to Manchester next weekend with one of the main reasons being closer to several parks and closer to a better airport for international parks. More opportunities to go to CF Lives and meet more...

    What was the first foreign roller coaster you ever rode?

    Mine would probably be Vol D’Icare at Parc Asterix back in 2002, followed by Zeus and Goudurix which were my first major coasters, don’t remember much of them but I do remember the pain.

    Will B&M ever utilise lap bars on inverting coasters?

    So after recently riding Valkyria at Liseberg with the upgraded vest restraints I can’t help but wonder if the vests are even necessary. Is there a reason B&M still use OTSR on all inverting coasters given the amount of manufacturers using just lap bars on newer inverting coasters? The upgraded...

    Rides that still genuinely scare you...

    Thr scariest ride I’ve done is Derby Racer at BPB. That ride really does fly round. Sitting high up on a horse with no restraint, clinging on for dear life not to fall off, I hated every second of it.

    Visiting parks with non-enthusiasts

    As someone who lives a 6 hour drive from the closest park (BPB) it’s pretty difficult to persuade non-enthusiasts to travel hundreds of miles to “just ride coasters”. Recently did a PA trip with GP mates, one of which said, and I quote “I hate the weightlessness on Shambhala, it would be better...
