    Potential addition of rides / themepark to Warner Bros Studio Tour, London.

    This would be perfect and surely Warner Bros have looked at the insane success of Harry Potter at the Universal theme parks and knows how easily that could be replicated here. With Warner Bros actually being the sole owner of the site, there is definitely a real possibility of this happening...

    New (temporary, hired) flat rides for Alton Towers

    I hate the idea of random funfair rides (which are only needed due to years of neglect) plonked in themed areas of the park. But credit where it is due, they have got the branding for this spot on and have almost changed my mind 😆 Would have been so cool if they went further with it and got...

    Obscure special effects

    Damn, watching that makes you realise how backwards we have gone in terms of dark rides in the UK. Terror Tomb was awesome. My favourite effect not many have seen isn’t on a ride but the entrance into Discoveryland where they literally had the entrance fountain on fire, it looked so amazing...

    New (temporary, hired) flat rides for Alton Towers

    Merlin should just do an Animal kingdom Chester & Hester's style land. Shove a load of fairground rides in the car park and it can look as cheap and crap as it likes because ‘that’s the theme’.

    New (temporary, hired) flat rides for Alton Towers

    ^ Ironically Zodiac was originally put in as a quick filler flat ride to up capacity after the fire at the wicked witches haunt. When it first arrived it still had it's funfair theming (last time a fun fair ride was seen like this in a Tussauds/Merlin park before this Alton abomination I...

    New (temporary, hired) flat rides for Alton Towers

    Oh what fresh hell is this? Really..? Things weren’t even this bad in the late Tussauds years.

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex Well as this is constantly labelled as the 'UK Disneyland' why not hire the Disney ship which is currently moored in Kent and Disney can be involved in the project after all 😆

    Lost Island Theme Park | Unknown | Kanonen relocation | 2022

    The Kumbak SLC trains on Batman Arkham Asylum were actually really good. So maybe they improved the design? Although I did ride it opening season when they were just added so maybe I got lucky.

    Chessington World Of Adventures | Croc Drop | Zamperla Sky (Drop) Tower

    I was hoping they would reopen this queue line that went around the top of the area but can see the stairs down are still missing in that most recent picture. Can’t make my mind up if this looks good or bad at the moment, will reserve judgment until I see it in person. Logo is still terrible...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Agreed, does seem rather convenient that they rode separately, he was front row, and his friend just happened to be filming the train as it come into the station. Six Flags can’t point the finger at them though as it’s still their fault for dispatching the train.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Didn’t know where to put this but it’s about B&M and doesn’t really warrant it’s own topic but just watched this video: Start watching from the 10 minute mark and you will see this. I thought B&M’s safety standards were higher than that and assumed there would be a sensor to check that...

    What is going on with Thorpe park?

    Is there even a structured plan in place at the moment? Where is the latest Medium term development plan? I believe they haven't released one since 2010 which went up to 2016. All they have issued since then was this application for permitted development rights in 2017 which is still to be...

    Warner Bros Movie World to Remove Arkham Asylum

    This was actually one of the better SLC’s around, I thought the Kumbak trains and restraints were an improvement. Hope it’s replaced by something major like a B&M or with this and Tower of Terror being removed Australia has lost 2 pretty substantial coasters recently.

    Chessington World Of Adventures | Croc Drop | Zamperla Sky (Drop) Tower

    ^ I'd be surprised as most of their work is pretty good the Wickerman stuff in particular is awesome. Pretty crazy really that a company the size of Merlin don't have their own marketing/branding department and now outsource it. Especially when you consider what Tussaud's used to be able to...
