    Longest walkway to a station you have experienced?

    I was going to say Hyperion, but gather Zadra is much the same!

    WTF Merlin?

    To put this in perspective, over the last 5 years, I know that a paraplegic is fine to ride Helix & Balder, everything at Alton except Smiler (that one, for whatever reason has always been the rule) and everything at Canada's Wonderland aside from Behemoth, Leviathan and Time Warp (lucky escape...

    I've voted Old Fashioned but will ALWAYS go for a Godfather (that's bourbon with amaretto. Wetherspoons put coke in it, but you shouldn't!) As far as cocktail recipes go, look no further than Roland Mack's Finest... Bloody hell, I miss Europa...

    Lego Coaster vs CDX Blocks

    ^ There is a LOT of support building involved, but a certain amount of variety otherwise Videos like this give you the general feel of it :) ...and yes, I learned the hard way how much cats like shiny stickers - my carousel lived in a kitchen cupboard while I was building it!

    Coasters that were built too early?

    I still didn't find it all that rough, but it IS incredibly boring. Endless rambling helices do little for me and the idea that it could've been an Intamin or a GCI instead has made me a little sad!

    Lego Coaster vs CDX Blocks

    Ah, I had it for Christmas with the intention of putting it together, enjoying it for a few days and then selling it before May to raise capital for a trip. Obviously, with the year going to **** what actually happened was I ended up spending the money on a succession of Lego - it's rather...

    Lego Coaster vs CDX Blocks

    I built the Lego coaster at the beginning of the year and while I'm intrigued by the realism of the CDX models, I think you'll always get better value for money with the Lego as well as it being a more satisfying and enjoyable build. I also notice how few pieces CDX offer, compared to the 4000+...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    I'm going off this topic - it used to have some useful updates in, but for the last month or so has just been The Great [Mask] Debate To throw in my two cents, as daft as it sounds, just buy a couple of washable ones, decorated with something you like. Suddenly, it feels like you're just...

    The Staff v. User counting game!

    WTF Merlin?

    For obvious reasons, I'm sceptical about Scarefest (or Fright Nights, for that matter) being able to operate in any kind of worthwhile capacity this year. Since the virus looks like ruining the high point of the theme park calendar as well, I've booked for the end of the week in order to get at...

    Ride Related Dreams You've Had

    Probably alcohol withdrawal related, but last night I had a dream where Duel at Alton broke down, and then the staff along with animatronics performed my favourite album. Made me giggle a bit when I woke up.

    Your Favourite Ever CF Lives

    Ahh, something pleasant to think about and take my mind off all these virus and press conferences... I'm now twice the age I was when I joined CF and even my infamous memory isn't what it used to be, but I'll see what I can do. I think I'll stick to autobiographical order rather than doing a...

    How many theme parks have you visited since parks reopened?

    After being spited by (and standing outside of) Dunes Leisure & Mack's Amusements last weekend, I finally got my first 3 creds of the year at Funland in Weston-super-Mare today :) Otherwise, I've visited Alton and Blackpool - as well as WMSP whilst everything was closed back in June.

    Rank the Soquets

    Grand Canyon at Fraispertuis and Drakkar at Didiland are both fab family coasters. Nothing else sticks out in my mind as strongly.

    A park with the best and worst coaster in one!

    Off the top of my head, the biggest gap in quality I've met is Canada's Wonderland On one hand, you have Behemoth and Leviathan But then you've also got Flight Deck and Time Warp to contend with
