I’d consider Zeus a brutally good woodie. It’s rough as tits but in a fast, out of control, fun way similar to Bandit @ Moviepark, Hades @ mtolympus, and Legend and Raven @ holidayworld. I don’t think we’re at a point where we’re bored of RMC’s but I do think this will happen at some point in...
My very vague understanding is that investment was limited to temporary rides because of the land lease issue. Perhaps we’ll see a little more in the form of long term attractions now the lease appears to have always been resolved.
Interesting that they're going for a prefabricated concrete panel system given the issues with LPS tower blocks all over the UK!
Yeah the sunken gardens are still there, give a great view of stealth if you wanna take 5 mins out! Agreed flying fish used to look great, was perfectly landscaped in a beautiful area. Best bet would be to get this second island built up and build a walkway from the sunken garden connecting...
I can’t work out if there’s a little speed increase at 2.05 in that POV. Not sure if there’s a small hill or if the camera is playing tricks. Just seems to speed up quickly into that corner!
Edit: I think there’s a drive wheel acting a small launch.
Can you point this out? I can’t see anything that shows or resembles a lift and given the layout can’t see how they’d make a lift hill and first drop work that well. I guess the footer locations could suggest some elevated track in the straight after the station but more likely an airtime hill...
I’ve done Helix, Taron, Wildfire, Karnan, Hyperion and I rank them in that order. I could do with re riding Helix as my last was in 2016 but I’m sure it’ll still hold up.
Others to throw in the mix;
Nemesis - not my cup of tea
Katun - not my cup of tea
Ispeed - not a fan of the restraints
I’ve ridden over 350 coasters and Drayton Manor is only a 90 minute drive from my house. I’ve never been.
At current rate the lineup is rapidly shrinking so I’ll have to go sooner rather than later. Just have no motivation whatsoever!
The thing that jumped out at me was seeing Balder and Silver Star comparatively low. Anything in particular you didn’t like about that them? Seems odd seeing Swarm and Saw ranked pretty highly considering you’ve travelled pretty well!
Playing devils advocate here but i visited in june and saw all of the intamin boats for Pilgrims Plunge lined up just outside the old station, looked like they were being inspected or something. Unfortunately i dont have pictures as my phone died but seemed odd for a ride that closed 5 years...
Think you're all on the money with a waterpark addition, the name 'Splashin Safari' kinda spells out its animal theme enough!
Only thing that do make me possibly think otherwise is;
Would a waterslide receive a marketing campaign like this? I guess so if it was breaking records.
Isn't there a...
