    Thorpe Park 2024?

    I'd rather a log flume: "Bake Off: Soggy Bottoms"

    Thorpe Park 2024?

    Not sure on the ride type, but it'll probably be themed to Love Island, Strictly or Bake Off.

    Merlin announces agreement to open LEGOLAND Korea

    From what I've seen, a well placed 'Marley & Me' dark ride could lift attendees' spirits significantly.

    Eurodemption #2 - Part 12: Family Park & multiple Praters

    Yes. I like to think that @HeartlineCoaster is like a theme park superhero. Perhaps, like Batman (right at the very end of ‘The Dark Knight’). By bravely surviving these parks and reporting on them, he’s being what CoasterForce needs him to be. Godspeed, @HeartlineCoaster. *Tear-in-eye salute*

    Vekoma testing something new ? (at their testing facility)

    By running a cross-analysis on the two images, I’ve been able to compute (to a 99% accuracy) the three dimensional layout of the area within the white circles; the results suggest, with some certainty, that there are some poles sticking out of the ground. Unfortunately, I currently lack the...

    Glenwood Caverns Incident

    This would be unlawful in the UK. Absolutely ridiculous if something like this applied here. Horrible event 😔

    What other hobbies do you have?

    @Nicky Borrill thanks for your suggestions, will review and get to the bottom of it…. Eventually 😩

    What other hobbies do you have?

    No, it's a Gigabyte 3090 vision. There were issues with a few Gigabyte cards at launch in relation to how certain connections were welded, but I don't think that affected the Vision cards, from what I can tell. I have an 850 watt PSU so I don't think it's that either - the power draw even when...

    What other hobbies do you have?

    Meh, I’d suggest pre-built all the way. I’ve had nothing but issues with my ‘build your own’ - going to have RMA my 30 series card since it had a habit of dying when stressed for 5 minutes…. @Nicky Borrill Unless you’re actually making using of the multi-cores, which lets face it unless it’s...

    Ride Related Dreams You've Had

    Before I had actually been on the ride, my childhood-self had many reoccurring dreams at besting Nemesis. The most memorable was a version of Nemesis where either the ride kept breaking, or it simply deliberately ended, to the effect that the train kept flying off the track. It was then the...

    Apple or Android?

    I find Apple phones to be a supremely pleasing experience, so much so that I’ve never had a desire to move away from them since the iPhone 4 (which is hilariously small compared to modern smart-phones). I tend to buy outright and then replace in 3-5 years when there is a notable technology...

    As the predicted queue line ever been wrong and it's taken longer than the expected time ?

    I’m pretty sure that the Merin parks in the UK have been overstating ride times quite dramatically for the past year or so. Chessington seems to be a particular offender for this.

    Eurodemption #2 - Part 12: Family Park & multiple Praters

    I always really enjoy reading your reports @HeartlineCoaster - you travel to places more off the beaten path than most (places which I’m unlikely to ever visit) which means it’s always a ‘fresh’ take and an intriguing, fun read. Thanks!

    A Gerstlauer Infinity to be opened at one of the following Cedar Fair parks

    I also heard some dogs mentioning this in the park yesterday. I was at a distance so I can’t be sure, but from what I gather the name has been shortened to just “Bark”.

    What are your thoughts on going backwards on coasters?

    Strong dislike whenever it involves any 'turning'. Straight line back-and-forth is OK but sub-optimal compared to the infinitely more fun 'just go forwards with turns'. I particularly dislike junior boomerangs - they feel like 1/2 of a full ride as (to me) the backwards section is redundant.
