    Rock & Roller Coasters: ICON BELIEVE IT! (BPB, 23rd June)

    Yeah I'm with you, Ian. Ordinarily I'd go for Icon + Band, but for £8? Why not. So I'll go for Icon + Avalanche + Band.

    I'd love to do Poland but I can't go this year for work reasons. I'd absolutely join if it happened next year though!

    Theme park moments that gave you goosebumps

    Two from Disneyland Shanghai: Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure - realising just why the roof of the building was so tall. Also y'know, that bit after it. The queueline reveal of the TRON coaster was also super cool. Elsewhere, we somehow discovered I Corsari in Gardaland...

    Alton Towers | Wicker Man | GCI Wood

    Is that bunting on the side of the tunnel? Nice to see they've decorated appropriately for whatever ritual this is supposed to be.

    Liseberg | Valkyria | B&M Dive Coaster

    Interesting - I got quite a bit of airtime from Valravn. Nothing exceptional, but I thought it was quite present. It's probably why it's now probably my fave dive coaster.

    Giant Wheel Park of Suzhou To Close.

    I recall it was something like being trapped in a blender full of marbles. Interesting, but not good. RIP. I hope I never have to ride it again.

    I'm very pro Denmark - and I've wanted to get to Hansa for the longest time, so I'd be doing an add-on similar to what Sue suggests if possible.

    Storytelling attractions

    Yeah, exactly. The theme of ToT is mystery, so the addition of extra elements that only observant people notice fits perfectly within the narrative - and the fact that it's optional lets the person who observes it become part of the story without having to explicitly tell them that.
