  • Emotional evening, what a send off... Hard to imagine any other UK coaster getting a send off like that for a refurb!!!

    Hats off to everyone who made that atmosphere electric!

    Goodnight and goodbye (for now) Nemesis
    I'm back... Got some catching up to do!

    Nowhere really Howie, few concerts and music festivals. Just work generally gets a lot busier this time of year, and I tend to stay away from Parks... I always seem to spend time off the forum at this time of year. Weird I know, most people get more active in the summer.

    But Countdown to Florida is ON now ;)
    Where on earth did the crazy ejector on the drop as you exit boring corner come from???

    Has somebody been tinkering? #wickerman

    It's seemingly had stronger airtime for a couple of years now, from my end. The back in particular when I rode in June 2021 had insane airtime in quite a few places!

    That's in stark contrast to 2018, where it had hardly any even in row 10.

    I was discussing this with @nadroJ last year.
    We don't know the scientific explanation, but fire made it good.

    It’s crazy compared to last year @Matt N

    It’s not just the back, almost anywhere from a few rows back now gets good airtime on the drop out of boring corner!!!

    Hope it lasts!

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but I could probably do tomorrow...

    I can’t sadly, we have a funeral / wake in :(

    Next week though (most days) before I take 2 weeks out, avoiding UK parks for the Easter holidays!!!

    Ah, I thought that was next week.

    I can do next week apart from Monday and Friday
    Please Russia, give it a rest... First Covid, now this... We just wanna ride coasters...

    Think I may need to move further away from Rolls Royce... Are the Scottish highlands still part of the UK? Or did she get her way yet?

    Bro Putin literally called DEMOCRATIC Ukraine a "Nazi Junta"
    #SaveDerbyCounty So the EFL have seemingly backed down / denied any hard deadline... Which is amazing news... But the fight still continues.

    Fun Fact: Derby County have existed for longer than we've been broadcasting audio via radio!
    Happy Thorpe Reveal Day everyone!!!

    Hope Coasterclaus brings you everything you desire xxx

    The 'in person' consultations are 3pm and 7pm today :)
    Looks like I'm back here with nothing to do again for 10 days... Tested positive for Rona... Cue random nonsense posts!!!
    About to hit Energylandia and Zadra again today with Cara, @Liam williams and @Katieb

    Think I’m a little bit obsessed with this place, might need an intervention!!!

    I think I’d rather be there than Alton Towers, Efteling, Liseberg and even Europa Park!!!

    I can’t put my finger on why either... Obviously the Giant RMC and Intamin help, but it’s more than that... The prices mean we can afford to indulge, then there’s Western Camp, camp fires and beers at night are the perfect accompaniment to a theme park trip!

    I get that, I get the Alton comparison, I get the cheap beers, I get the camp fire, I definitely get "Hypadra" but...
    Efteling, Liseberg and Europa? Noooo!!
    I'd go back to Europa tomorrow, am already looking to persuade the Mrs to go, 3 or 4 nights onsite in one of the hotels, spa, waterpark, the lot. Loved it.

    Oh I love it too, out of those parks I listed, Europa was the hardest to type... With Europa I think the thing that would draw me to Poland over it is purely the hardware.
