    What are your favourite non-coaster attractions?

    TdF is amazing. Tension, theatre and fire. What more could you want? Fire instantly improves any rides, in particular Volare and spinning wild mouse coasters.

    CF-Lives 2020 | All Dates Announced!

    Yes, Matt N, social distancing is a factor to consider. We’ll see what the Government’s advice and rules are nearer the time. Unless the “only x people from different households” rule is scrapped, the Live won’t be happening anyway.

    CF-Lives 2020 | All Dates Announced!

    Thanks for the input so far. I’m in no rush to make a decision on this, but will around mid-August. Definitely considering adding LWV if it goes ahead. Living on the south coast, heading to North Yorkshire is a looooong journey. If I’m making that journey and staying near the parks - which may...

    CF-Lives 2020 | All Dates Announced!

    There's one UK CF-Live left, and that's Flamingoland in September. It is likely that the parks will be open by then, although there's no guarantee the new cred will be, or what the social distancing restrictions will be. So, open disucssion. Keep Flamingoland or spite it this year? Would you...

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    I’m going to flip a coin to see if they’ll blame Covid or Brexit for the next delay. This is the longest joke in UK theme park history, with no punchline in sight.

    @Nic and @chainedbanana I’ve yet to get a refund request from you. Please can you check your emails again. If you haven’t got the email, send me a text.

    CANCELLED - Unfinnished Business | FINLAND |24th - 26th Jul 2020

    Going to be frank here - it's not helpful to read speculation about what restrictions might be lifted, or what could happen. I appreciate everybody is gutted and understand that there is a slim chance everything might be ok by end of July, but it doesn't mean this Live will suddenly be back on...

    CANCELLED - Unfinnished Business | FINLAND |24th - 26th Jul 2020

    Everybody who has applied for a refund should've received it. By my counts, there are six attendees who have not responded. Please check your emails - including junk - to make sure you've got the instructions. If possible I'd like to get them all sorted by the weekend so people have their...

    CANCELLED - Unfinnished Business | FINLAND |24th - 26th Jul 2020

    Chris said it well above. It is gut wrenching to pull this when we know everybody was looking forward to it. It’s the unpredictable nature of this pandemic that meant we had to draw a line at some point. If we cancelled too early, we wouldn’t have given it time to play out. If we left it late...

    Coronavirus: Economic impact on theme parks in 2020.

    “July” for UK entertainment venues (I assume theme parks are included in that). And that’s conditional if the infection rate is low/stable, and they can prove they meet Covid protection measures.

    CANCELLED - Blown Away | PAULTONS PARK | 6th June 2020

    With the news that Tornado Springs will not open until Easter 2021, the 2020 Live is cancelled. We will return to Paultons, hopefully with a similar offering, next year!

    Coronavirus: Economic impact on theme parks in 2020.

    It’s been a while since anybody predicted Oakwood and Drayton will go bust. It is indeed a strange time.

    CANCELLED - Blown Away | PAULTONS PARK | 6th June 2020

    Regretfully, Coronoavius spites again. Paultons has been in contact with me to cancel this event on 6th June, as the park is unlikely to reopen by then. (They've also cancelled their press and opening event in May.) Please do not make any further arrangements to attend this Live on 6th June. I...

    Coronavirus (Covid-19) and CF Lives (Updated 13/05/20)

    We're keen to meet up and want to support the parks as much as possible, but health wins wins every single time. We are monitoring the advice given by the national Governments, health organisations, and, of course, the parks we plan to visit. Until this blows over and health officials deem the...
