    Cocktails

    Tequila Sunrise... It’s the safe bet, can’t really make a bad one, and tequila never fails to make anyone (who likes it) happy! Local (ish) secret / hidden bar in Nottingham does one called RUN Q.M.C (the name a play on Run DMC and the Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham) I quite enjoy it, it...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    It’s not the particles that they are supposed to catch, it’s the droplets that contain large doses of the virus. The ones you exhale when coughing, sneezing or even talking. However as evident in that video, masks still help to reduce the distance at which even the smallest particles travel...

    WTF Merlin?

    Not necessarily a WTF moment... But nowhere more suitable for it. Merlin have completely removed their annual passes from sale. They may be replaced with options recently shown in a customer survey, including a very good value midweek pass... Which would suit me to the ground :)

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Owned 😂😂😂 (Man I feel like a teenager again, haven’t used that phrase in quite some time... But it was just called for here!) To add something constructive to the discussion, @coasteraddict10 I would argue that, at the moment at least, it seems not to be ‘demonstrably false’ at all. Otherwise...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    It is very clear (for pubs at least) that closed means closed, as in customers have left the premises. Boris actually stated that himself.

    WTF Merlin?

    Merlin also gave us July to September on our passes completely free... As compensation for these measures, let’s not forget that. So Nobody was paying for an annual pass from March until September. Pre paid passes got the extension to cover this, monthly got the payment holiday... Yet we could...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Pubs in the UK to close for 10pm and table service only by law! Means absolutely no negative impact for us... As we’ve been operating this way since July! Does mean we will no longer have to put up with the odd awkward customer saying “but we don’t have to do this at x, we just go up to the...

    WTF Merlin?

    It’s been like this since they reopened. Obviously they need to sell as many day tickets as possible, with the requirement to prebook, if they released all tickets to passholders immediately, the limited capacity would be swallowed up by passholders immediately. The good news is that many...

    GCI steel track on White Lightning

    You can literally see the trains shuffling heavily side to side... But only on that corner.. I’ll video it next time I’m there (Next week probably, just got back from there today :/ ) Did you ride it in October 2018? Didn’t really get to it’s best until the end of summer after it had bedded in...

    GCI steel track on White Lightning

    I was just about to suggest the same. Rough isn’t the word, visible shuffling of the carriages from off ride :/ WM is a shadow of itself last year... Not had a decent ride on it at all in the last 8 weeks :/ RMC it 🙈

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    I’ve been told the EHOs who normally deal with food hygiene and ‘scores on the doors’ inspections have been instructed to carry out covid secure inspections and enforcement. So The Environmental Health team at the local council is, I imagine, the correct place. :)

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    It’s a tricky situation isn’t it? Some of the mask exemptions, such as asthma, are actually more likely to make folk cough... It’s naturally going to concern some of the people around them. My better half, Cara, is severely asthmatic, and so exempt, but would rather wear a mask, and does so for...

    Did you post about this on the MAP facebook group?

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    That’s (authority) down to your company. Businesses are not ‘public’ places, and if any company wants to refuse entry to any customer for any reason they can do. As a business we do have to navigate discrimination laws, but that’s easily done with a clear policy. Anybody breaches that policy...
