Spooky season is creeping up! Here is a topic to plan Ghosterforce 2019, which is:
Fri 4th Oct: Trippsdrill
Sat 5th Oct: Europa Park
Sun 6th Oct: Europa Park
Unfortunately I am no longer able to run the Live as I'll be moving to a new city to start a PhD that same week.
So I'm leaving you in...
We go round as a big group, riding everything together. Once everyone is off a ride I will use my shouty voice to say what we're doing next.
I will also shout "Toilet Break" often and no one will listen and 10 mins later people will say they want the toilet.
Expect games, quizes, laughs, dark...
The smoother the better in my opinion. Loved gliding around on Valravn for example, felt like I was flying...weee! Sure, roughness can bring character - but, for me, it is mostly distracting and takes away from the coaster experience.
My easyjet flight from Bristol lands at 8.35am on the Saturday, which is plenty of time! Just to clarify: the meet up will be at the Walibi park entrance, not the airport. Which flight were you looking at?
Nemesis was the coaster that made me an enthusiast. I was there in 1994 as well, I remember that feeling of awe just seeing and hearing this beast in operation.
But in 94 I was too small to ride it, so I just watched it go round, fascinated by this alien looking structure. And thus my obsession...
Yay, come along! We're a friendly bunch!
Meet up times will be posted as soon as we have confirmed numbers and any park perks have been arranged (for example, we might be able to get ERT in the morning which will mean meeting earlier)
Generally you can expect we will be meeting outside the...

Saturday 8th September - Walibi Holland
Sunday 9th September - Bobbejaanland
So let's get planning!
Who is coming? If we get some decent confirmed numbers we may be able...
Thanks to everyone who came! I had a smashing, if slightly rain-soaked, time. Firstly, here are some photos (apologies for my terrible photo skills)
For context, I did a quiz called GOONIVERSITY CHALLENGE. Here are the respective teams, ready to answer my quick fire coaster questions...
Nice report. @Matt N your positivity is a breath of fresh air! For a bunch of people who call ourselves "enthusiasts" we can often be so nitpicky and hard to please, so it's great to read a report that has good things to say about Oakwood for once!
Karnan is cool, but I found it a bit...faffy. There's lots of hanging about waiting for it to do it's lifthill tricks. Lots of waiting around to get to the first drop. The flow of Novgorod is significantly better in my eyes. It has better themeing, the dark ride section is excellent and the...
