    ^ Literally. Far from sluggish.

    Universal Orlando | Volcano Bay | Water Park

    Yeah, it's annoying that some of the park's only normal body slides aren't accessible for most people.

    Nickelodeon Universe | Chongqing China |Indoor Theme Park

    Yeah, they've been building bridges for years now.

    That gets so close to the end of the track, I love it.

    Efteling | Max & Moritz | Mack Powered Coasters

    I don't know why it's taken me this long to realise that the trains run in the opposite directions to one another, I thought they both went the same way.

    IoA | Unknown | Jurassic Park Intamin Blitz

    It isn't a hugely colourful environment though. The area of the park is pretty grey/green. You have the looming Jurassic Park River Adventure show building to the left and Hogwarts to the right, both of which aren't really rendered in many colours. This is smack bang in the middle of the two...

    New rides @ small parks

    This park is really fab. It's so so so weird. Excited to see what the new rides are.

    IoA | Unknown | Jurassic Park Intamin Blitz

    Not to mention that it's sat right in the middle of the grey buildings of Hogwarts and Jurassic Park. In fact, a colourful coaster would've been MORE out of synch with its surroundings.

    IoA | Unknown | Jurassic Park Intamin Blitz

    Eh? It won't look out of place... you're forgetting this is just to the left of where Dragon Challenge used to dominate the skyline - this is just a replacement eye-catching moment upon the 'reveal' of the park (passing through the Port of Entry area).

    M&D's Theme Park goes into Administration

    Most of the amusement parks and companies that do it get rid of their permanent salaried staff and invite them back into roles as flexible staff/zero hour contracts which is absoutely ****ing disgusting behaviour. Not mentioning a specific park that's done this in the past few years, and is more...

    La Récré de 3 Curés | Vertika | Custom Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter

    The transition from the final inversion into the brakes looks so tight.

    M&D's Theme Park goes into Administration

    That ain't gonna happen - it's a family run business and always will be. They're actually quite a nice family, too.

    M&D's Theme Park goes into Administration

    It's incredibly common for that to happen, to be fair. It's a shame because they have quite big plans to turn it into a live entertainment venue that hosts outdoor gigs, concerts, theatre and other live entertainment and not rely to heavily on the 'theme park' aspect of the site. Hopefully...

    Efteling | Max & Moritz | Mack Powered Coasters

    I ain't debating the cohesion of the fart joke with the narrative, I'm saying it'll be so ****ing annoying. Saying that, it is the park with the bins that shout PAPIER HERE every two seconds.

    Gröna Lund | Unknown | B&M Invert

    If memory serves right, Banshee's don't lock? Also, vests are disgusting. Give me normal OTSRs any day of the week. Banshee is ****.

    Efteling | Max & Moritz | Mack Powered Coasters

    Those fart cushions aren't going to get annoying when you're queueing, not whatsoever.

    M&D's Theme Park goes into Administration

    Well, yeah. That's why anybody is making the hard decisions they're making. I'm saying that Covid-19 is not the only issue the park is having financially.

    M&D's Theme Park goes into Administration

    Yeah, they made +50 redundancies, but have stripped their operation back to (hopefully) claw back some of the OPEX. The Coronavirus is simply another straw on the camels back, though.

    M&D's Theme Park goes into Administration

    Dreamland is not owned by a council, though. It's owned by a limited company with a consortium of investors known as Arrowgrass, which last year also went under. The reality is that they don't have the capital to keep afloat, especially the amount of staff they had - so they've now dropped down...

    Tripsdrill | Hals-Über-Kopf & Volldampf | Vekoma STC & Family Boomerang Coaster

    Yeah, exaggerating a little there... it looks a little faster, but it ain't haulin'. Plus, Karacho also isn't that good, it's quite forgettable to be honest.
