    It's the classic "30 rides and attractions" - with birds, sand, and meerkats counting.

    A Trip to the Theatre

    Went to see Back To The Future The Musical at Manchester Opera House this week. As a musical it's fairly middling, but as a show it's great fun with a lot to like. It's funny, well-staged, and they recreate the film very well. The Delorean sequences are very well done, and it's very immersive...

    Knightmare is now scrap metal, y'all can stop wondering

    I've heard they're hoping to expand the Battlefield Live attraction, so the old Knightmare space will either be part of the expansion - or a car park for it! (They also still hope to build all those houses there)

    Chessington World Of Adventures Have Revealed Elmer's Flying Jumbos In 2020

    Can't believe they're building an Elmer ride and only paying for one Elmer with everything else being an off-the-shelf elephant. Well, I can believe it actually....

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    The concept art keeps the public interested and on-side, and brings in investors. Planning permission goes in and the good will of the public and the nice promises means it gets past. Then the theme park is determined to be unviable so they build a load of houses to flog off instead. Ker-ching!

    SW9 at Alton Towers

    Ah, OK. Just with him saying on TV last week that they're making a roller coaster of one of his books, I took that to mean they're making a roller coaster of one of his books.

    SW9 at Alton Towers

    Just checking, as I haven't been paying attention, but next years David Walliams roller coaster won't be SW9 will it?

    Valhalla at Blackpool Pleasure Beach to be refurbished for 2021

    I don't think it's so much the wetness that's an issue, just that the water is so damn cold. It's one thing to go on a ride that gets you wet, it's quite another thing to keep doing the ice bucket challenge every go.
