    The Maccy D's Thread.

    What sort of evil conglomerate bastards stick the big tasty back on the menu when I'm trying to cut weight in January?

    What's next for PortAventura?

    Yeah agreed with Howie, the absolute priority needs to be padding Ferrari land out. It needs another coaster at least - doesn't have to be massive but a time-filler at least. After that, I reckon the Wild West section is long overdue an overhaul, it looks dated (yes, I know that's the idea) and...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    Fairly sure I win the game here and I preface this by saying I've ridden a single one. But I really don't 'get' RMC's. Just make the entire ride out of steel, what purpose does the wooden base serve other than to add a USP to it? Get your teeth stuck into that on a Saturday morning :)

    What’s next for Phantasialand?

    Actually pad out the left hand side of the park by the lake with something because that entire area does feel like a bit of an afterthought compared to the rest of the park.

    Roller Coaster TV Programs and News Articles!

    The Alton bit on Top Gear was really good - they actually acknowledged their own experiences of the park including the classic getting lost on the way around. The drone shots were absolutely incredible, some of the best footage I've seen of the park - although I didn't half feel a bit sick...

    Is that most recent concept art not entirely different from the previous set? Again, some people here are getting PAID

    Longest walkway to a station you have experienced?

    Taron and Helix are the two that come to mind, mainly because it's an absolute pain trying to re-ride them quickly by having to run back round. Along that vain, I seem to recall either Wodan or Joris having similar length run-arounds.

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster | 2020

    Looks slow. But then it also looks like the perfect ride to swoop and dive around such detailed theming.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Look lads can we just ban this idiot? Like, I'm all for letting people join and free speech and all that, but when you're outright spouting lies as facts, do you really deserve to be allowed to continue posting? Especially given the subject matter. Dis-information is a serious issue and some...

    Ah honestly I'm so glad it's not just me who even after all this time still has a proper fear of Oblivion (and to some extent hydraulic launches). I literally have no idea what it is but something about the queue, the anticipation and the lift hill get me every single time.

    Your Favourite Ever CF Lives

    I can't actually remember how many I've officially done and how many I've unofficially done, or which weren't actually lives (there's not a lot to choose from I'm just a bit tired). I think my first official was Oakwood which was a laugh, particularly the death slides of doom and the water...

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s wooden coasters: what would you do with them?

    Get rid of PMBO and you may as well get rid of the Tower too, it's as much a part of the skyline of the town.
