    Untame My Heart | WALIBI HOLLAND and BOBBEJAANLAND | 7th-8th Sep 2019

    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...

    Can a coaster ever be too smooth?

    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.

    Untame My Heart | WALIBI HOLLAND and BOBBEJAANLAND | 7th-8th Sep 2019

    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?

    Coasters & parks that mean a lot to you

    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...

    Untame My Heart | WALIBI HOLLAND and BOBBEJAANLAND | 7th-8th Sep 2019

    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...

    Oakwood Theme Park 26th May 2019

    I've been many times, it was actually one of my childhood parks! Megafobia is my fave UK woodie in fact.

    Oakwood Theme Park 26th May 2019

    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!

    Top 10(ish): 2019 Edition - page 80

    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...
