    Unknown | Flamingo Land | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster (possible Hopi Hari relocation)

    Not sure of the answer but I've got at least 5 things to say in response to it. Number 4 will SHOCK you!

    Liseberg | Helix | Mack Megacoaster

    It gets AWFULLY close to the back of the train just before the second launch

    Last Cred Review

    Bit of a stupid thing to say, no? Like, if it's one of the best rides he's ever ridden of course it's going to be a 10/10 for him

    Last Cred Review

    Icon: It's alright. Like, I've not been remotely hyped about it even though Helix is one of my favourite rides and I loved Blue Fire - I just felt Icon looked slow, didn't really do much and was just a bit of a meandering afterthought that would look better than it rode. I was sort of right...

    Your top transportation rides

    Honestly my examples for this are garbage compared to the above but figured I'd give an opinion anyway as I do like some of the UK's options. The Alton monorail for example, offers a great experience for first time visitors, taking you over Air and Nemesis' valley (particularly if they're...

    Solo Sweden (May 2019)

    Ah that's rotten luck, honestly I reckon if I couldn't get on Helix then Liseberg would be just another park for me, it's just that good a ride.

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

    Probably some logistical tinkering going on -if it's as popular as it sounds, everyone heading to it first thing, people aren't shopping and spending money elsewhere around the park and their immediate impression of the park is one long queue. This at least gives them a reason to force people...

    Aarhus In The Middle of Our Street - Denmark 2019!

    I've half been tempted by Denmark again purely because if frequently comes up with £5 flights to Our House. Looks for a cred run at least.

    YAY Merlin!

    That's not your reservation, that's Chessington's.

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

    Don't think Alvey's review is all that unfair at all actually. And I'm usually one of the first to call him a ****. The ride looks absolutely incredible, the sheer scale of it is unreal. If you didn't know beforehand about the spike and flip track you'd **** yourself.

    10% themed to either a washing machine or a fidget spinner

    Accident at Lightwater Valley

    Yeah lads, ****ing hell. Let's not start scoping out potential replacements just yet. Always thought this ride was questionable at best, rough as **** and one of the worst I've ridden. Wouldn't be surprised if there's some sort of restraint issue involved, but that said there's also reports of...

    Quietest you've ever seen a theme park?

    Hmmm in the back of my head I'm sure we had a ridiculously quiet day somewhere in Europe...I recall having to wait for people to join the queue at Parque Warner Madrid for each coaster.

    Best coaster for airtime in the UK?

    I must have had a duff ride on Megafobia because I had barely any air-time at all on it, just pain and boredom. Haven't yet ridden Icon but I'd imagine it'd probably be that tbh.

    Phantasialand Live 2019: CANCELLED

    As someone who likely wouldn't be able to get to either (and therefore sharing a mostly worthless viewpoint) - Hold off and wait until FLY is open as it's likely you'll struggle to get numbers together for a Phantasialand live late this year. PA or Europa would be my two suggestions.
