    Paultons Park Tornado Springs New Area for 2020

    I can't wait for them to formally announce that it's a SS clone so all the whistful speculation can stop. Edit, because I felt a little bad: Hello and welcome!

    Linnanmäki | Taiga | Intamin LSM Launch Coaster

    This looks amazing, argh just as I tick EGF off my European bucket list, this thing comes along! I'm loving the reviews coming in from people who have ridden it, and in general it's been brilliant to see new Finnish members joining the forum, just like we've seen with the Polish folks with...

    Rumoured Coaster - Flamingo Land

    Let's remember that this "rumour" is one of our users reporting that somebody has commented on a youtube video saying that they overheard somebody saying something about it being Hero's last season. It is very tenuous and barely worth discussing. Also - it's a Volare - who cares!?

    What was the coaster that helped you brave your fears, and what were they?

    Corkscrew helped me on my way in 2001/2, but it was Oblivion in 2003 that was my big moment of overcoming fear of big rides.

    Accident at Lightwater Valley

    He's out of hospital now but still "recovering at home". It also mentions that LWV have said the ride will be closed "indefinitely" (unsurprisingly).

    Favourite coasters by colour

    Not to be taken too seriously! We all enjoy praising or condemning a ride's colour scheme, so what's your favourite of each colour? I reckon: Red - Extreme Rusher Blue - (half of) Twisted Colossus Yellow - Superman Something Spanish (I'm going to count the colour of the rails here) Green -...

    IOA | Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure | Intamin LSM Launch (Dragon Challenge replacement)

    Is 10 hours the longest recorded queue time in the history of roller coasters? I think probably yes. Plus, as this ride has a pretty solid throughput I'm also going to say this is probably the greatest number of people who have ever been in the queue for a single roller coaster in history...

    Last Cred Review

    Expedition GeForce - one I've been massively looking forward to, and had very high expectations for it. I'll keep this as a cred review rather than a trip report, but in brief the SRII was closed so +1 for my ever-growing list of spites, although I did get the Zierer +1. Anyway, back to the...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    If you have a rubber duck with you then you can get in for the discount rate of £8 instead of the full price. It's a classic Merlin fun PR thing, nothing wrong with doing this sort of whacky promotion although clearly it's nothing to get excited about!

    Rumoured Coaster - Flamingo Land

    Yeah it's weird; I guess there is no requirement to include it. The final turn of new coaster is coming *very* close to the Velocity station:

    Eurostar is BACK!

    Nice one @roomraider , I knew you wouldn't let me down! Let's hope that one day this coaster escapes Russia and makes it back to somewhere more accessible!

    Accident at Lightwater Valley

    His condition is described as "Critical but stable" The full article is here: I am not impressed that somebody (the BBC?) seems to have approached the mother of the poor girl who died in 2001 on this ride for comment...
