    The biggest thrill in the smallest package?

    Yeah, this was what jumped to my mind immediately too. I didn't know what to expect from it when I visited GronaLund a couple of years back but it stood out to me as one of my favourite wooden coasters after riding it!

    Least favorite element?

    I've never really got the appeal of a Cobra Roll. Maybe its because i've never found a good one, but everyone i've ridden has just felt a bit flat. Shame really, because they do look great, and they're quite an imposing feature to have.

    Favourite Flavour of Pot Noodle

    Genuinely want a Pot Noodle now... Beef & Tomato or Original Curry for me, although the Beef & Tom ones have never been the same since they got rid of the crumbs of soya in them. Weirdly, that made them better. Doesn't say much about them does it!

    Best tomato based food with a fry-up

    Bean me. There's a time and place for tomatoes, and its in a salad, not a fry-up.

    Top 10(ish): 2020 Edition - page 96

    Re: Top 10(ish): 2015 Edition - page 27 Mamba is beautifully themed, definitely give you that. I love the queue line too, no switchbacks, just a queue that meanders through the layout. Its nice to see some thought go into that. Its a great ride though, it just falls ever so slightly short...

    Skyrush or Expedition Geforce?

    Now i've not ridden Skyrush, but EGF certainly didn't disappoint last weekend. Whether the heat was a factor, possibly, but the trims barely operated, and it certainly hasn't lost any airtime in the last 10 years. I find it hard to comprehend that people suggest it has 'no' airtime... I was...

    Who uses Theme park merchandise?

    Its just dawned on me that I don't really have any merch! I quite fancy some mugs though, and yes, i'd definitely use them. I can't see me spending money on something I wouldn't get use out of.

    Watching PoVs

    Watching a POV of something i've not yet ridden doesn't really bother me, nothing is a substitute of the feeling of actually riding it. Generally I can see what a ride does just from photos, so a video isn't really spoiling anything as such. The forces of being on the ride are what make it or...

    Geology rocks!

    One rock formation that's always fascinated me is the Wulingyuan mountains in China. Completely otherworldly!

    Music Recommendations

    ^^Coming of Age is a gorgeous track. I can take a leave Foster the People in general, but I love that song. Its got a lovely Beach Boys-esque vibe, blissfully relaxing. Adding to that, anyone caught any of Slaves? Top bit of new British punk, and its proper punk too, not the punk rock Fall...

    How do you eat a kiwi fruit?

    There are people who eat the skin?! Jesus... I've always peeled and quartered them to be honest, i'd never considered another way. Then I met Lucy, and she favoured the 'egg method', but having tried it, i'd rather stick to quartering it.
