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

    After seeing the wall in person today I can happily say I'm a fan of the wall. It's a good wall.

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    Silver Star is better than Expedition GeForce. Being 6ft 4 I found the Expedition GeForce restraints ridiculously uncomfortable. B&M trains are so much nicer for someone of my size.

    A park with the best and worst coaster in one!

    I'd go with Walibi Holland. Untamed is a fantastic coaster while Condor is the worst thing I've ever ridden.

    Coaster Count / Credits

    Like most things it's down to your personal opinion, its only embarrassing if you find it embarrassing. More often than not the people who operate these smaller coasters are understanding of enthusiasts and their love of a Wacky Worm. I've ridden 116 coaster in the UK (most of which could be...

    What UK Parks are "Worth It?"

    Alongside the mentioned parks like Towers, Pleasure Beach and Thorpe I'd highly recommend a trip down to Paultons. Its the best UK family park by far and Tornado Springs is looking fantastic. Plus if you've got time in the afternoon you could always head over to Portsmouth for a few Pier creds...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    I've spent the day at Thorpe but unfortunately I was left feeling disappointed by the experience. In some areas they've done very well, there are plenty of hand sanitisers around the park and clear signage explaining the procedures they've put in place. The retail areas were also well looked...

    First park you’ll be going to

    My first park will most likely be Thorpe, but as soon as we get the all clear to travel again I'll be straight off to Energylandia and Legendia!

    LEGOLAND Windsor | Duplo Dino Coaster | Mack Oval

    We got a ride on it today. Large trains, comfortable restraints and bold, colourful theming. Makes it the perfect coaster for young kids. Only downside is how quickly picks up a long queue.

    Legoland Windsor - Lego Movie World

    Work walls have gone up and construction is underway. From Mia's Riding Adventure you can see they're alredy preparing the land and laying new pipes. Looking forward to watching this project come together!

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi | 2021

    As long as coronavirus doesn't stop the trip I should be heading over at the end of next month, can't wait to get on this!

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    The Alton Towers website says that Coke Frestyle will be coming to the park for the 2020 season. I was hoping this would happen after the success they had at Thorpe Park. Maybe we'll also see it at Chessington soon.

    Thorpe Park: What could the future hold?

    With their latest post it feels like Thorpe are hinting towards changes with or around Stealth. I hope this isn't the case as it would feel like a massive waste of money considering all the other issues within the park.

    Thorpe Park: What could the future hold?

    This image was recently shared on Thorpe Parks twitter and Instagram accounts before being deleted shortly after. I'm not going to jump to conclusions about what this means, but both this image and the intalizing for 2020 message have me feeling like they could be teasing something with a...
