    Where does the 85mph speed claim for The Big One at Blackpool Pleasure Beach come from?

    Due to BPB's sea level claim i do doubt that top speed. In RCT maybe, in real life, no.

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    Not sure if controversial, but Munich Looping/Olympia Looping is meh. Shockwave at Over Texas is superior in every way. I find people hype up Munich WAY too much, like sure its the best travelling coaster. But one ride was enough, and even for the UK its not elite. I rode it at night, it pulled...

    I totally agree in Nemesis will get a retrack when need be, but i doubt its going to need it for a while. The ride probably has a ton of years left in it, and the ride is smooth and still in good shape. Why retrack something that doesn't really need retracking yet? B&M's have great service...

    I call BS. So first he mentions a Nemesis retrack, now sure Hulk got a retrack, but Nemesis is not at the end of its service life to my knowledge, The Hulk was an exception due to heavy trains, constant cycling, and year round operations. You gotta remember, Merlin really wouldn't do a retrack...

    Thorpe Park Fright Nights 20th Anniversary

    I have to admit i was completely luke-warm on Trailers. The concept is cool, but i feel some aspects of the maze just did not work. Here is a few points to why Lack of a Finale Trailers has a really cool special effect in its finale, but it is completely undermined by not much urgency? It is...

    Yeah those first few runs where awesome with you! Run three will stick in my mind as being pure carnage. It was nice meeting you. 10 laps on Platform is no easy feat lol.

    UK Scare Attractions Reports

    So this one is fresh out of the oven, i just got home from Scarecon:Aftershock. They have an amazing after party going on, but due to other stuff i had to leave early. God though what an amazing night, it is such a fun event. It is truly intimate, with everyone coming because they love scare...

    I think this is due to Alton just overall recieving better investments in between big investments. Alton managed to get a hold on the kids market first, this was something that they needed. Cbeebies Land was a great success, it gave Alton a real draw for kids, and it had buzz around it. Cbeebies...

    We may be getting a decent investment? Huh? Its been ten years. I honestly think anything would impress me, it could be a pinfari zyklon and i'd be grateful for anything new here. I'd say a GCI, i personally think the RMC mention in trailers is a bit of joke on Thorpe's part. I think a hyper...

    UK Scare Attractions Reports

    This was also true for our run through! I think they are trying not to use use them post covid or try and phase them out which i actually think is a good thing. I am glad coven still has them though, as in that maze the squeeze bags are absolutely pivotal to the maze.

    UK Scare Attractions Reports

    Last night i visited Tulleys Farm Shocktoberfest, and i decided i had to do a little write up. This event has been close to my heart since 2012. Last night i probably had one of the best nights at Tulleys, i thought the event was as strong as ever. I just want to go over some highlights, as...

    Thorpe certainly is bottom of the food chain at the moment. I guess you have to view Thorpe as the 'Six Flags America' of the chain. The potential to grow the park seems very low, and probably is viewed that way by higher ups. The park since 2016 has basically recieved nothing. They ruined their...
