    Wicker Man vs Megafobia

    I think I can (kind of) compare these fairly. I rode Megafobia in its opening year and Wicker Man in its second year, so I think it's fair to say I got them both at their best. I haven't ridden either since those first visits either. Not taking into account age or any developed roughness...

    The Maccy D's Thread.

    Pikachu meat on a rice bun. No thank you.

    Toverland's Expansion Plan

    A big difference is that Disney deliberately bought way more land in Florida than they ever intended to use in order to prevent what happened with Disneyland: cheap ****ty hotels, shops and chain restaurants right outside the gates and trapping the park.

    The World of David Walliams is coming to Alton Towers

    Looks s**t. As others have said, it's probably down to most of the budget being spaffed up the wall on the IP. That might work to get people through the gate in the first year or two it's open, but you're then left with a steaming turd of an attraction with little to no revisit value. Sent...

    What happened to the demand for thrilling inverted coasters?

    I'm sure we've all heard people say s**t like "Infusion is just like Nemesis". If a new invert is "just like" something very different down the road, what's the point? Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    WTF Merlin?

    Three fifty for the exact same maps. They can dress it up as "for the environment" as much as they want, but what a bunch of c**ts.

    Busch Gardens (Tampa)..first coaster?

    I'd switch up ECG's coaster order to leave Sheikra until last. It's absolutely not as intense as Kumba and, especially, Montu, but it's a lot more intimidating to look at, so it may need a bit more of a build-up psychologically than those other two. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    It happens. This is clearly not to the same scale, but a fairly large housing project a few minutes walk from where I grew up had to be canceled when they found a rare newt, and it ended up being turned into a mini nature reserve.

    Fuji-Q Announces Major New Coaster for 2022!

    Yep, and as crap as it was, it was loads better than what they put in there later. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    New (temporary, hired) flat rides for Alton Towers

    I think "waltzer" and I think underage girls hanging around to get fingered by those dodgy blokes that spin the cars. Will Alton factor in that aspect of the nostalgia?

    Fuji-Q Announces Major New Coaster for 2022!

    That opens up quite a bit of space given that the wild mouse was removed recently, too. No big loss on the crap in that building disappearing either. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    Rank the Intamin Launch Coasters

    I've done Skycar. It's fun, but short. The launch isn't particularly strong, but there's a decent pop of airtime on the hill that goes through the loop. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk

    Jinan Sunac Theme Park | Jinan | Theme Park

    Looks like a glass bridge. They love them in China and they're popping up a lot in mountain areas. Strange to see one built on towers from a flat piece of land though. Sent from my Redmi Note 7 using Tapatalk
