    Fatal Accident at Parc Saint Paul

    I went on this about 6 years ago, and it was a bit terrifying even with both of the restraints. But if the seat belts have been removed, that's a big no-no, especially in this day and age.

    Your longest theme park hiatus?

    Just over 6 months since I was at Phantasialand, and it's starting to get a bit long in the tooth now. I'm looking at going to Europe in the next couple of months, and hit up some domestic parks in the next few weeks.

    Walibi Belgium | Unknown | Intamin Mega Coaster

    Looking forward to this taking shape now. Walibi Belgium is doable in a day from Manchester, and whilst I would never have dreamed of doing such a thing before this ride gets built, I'd definitely consider it once it's up and running.

    Gullivers Valley

    ^The original concept of the site looked half-decent, but it's been scaled back and back to the point where now it's just beyond underwhelming. I'd like to give it a chance and try and go with an open mind, and I've got friends and in-laws with families I can tag along with for creds. But...

    The first rule of Pitts Special is: You do not talk about Pitts Special.

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    Forgot this was still a thing. Not sure how more dead if can get. But where there's a will, there's a way.

    Alabama’s Rampage and Wales’ Megafobia

    I honestly thought Rampage was going to be pretty rough when we rode it, but it was utterly joyous and a lesson in how to maintain and look after a wooden coaster. Especially one that had sat SBNO for 3 years. Look after your rides or they’ll go to s***. Not much more to said here.

    M&D's Theme Park goes into Administration

    That's an insult to most Six Flags parks. Shame that a load of folks have been made unemployed, especially in times like these when it's very difficult to find alternative employment. But let's face it, it was a glorified fairground with an arcade on the side, and a load of rides that you're...

    Bellewaerde | Wakala | Gerstlauer Family Semi-Shuttle

    This could be pretty fun. Bellewaerde is a really nice park, and from what has been released about it, this ride should suit the place perfectly.

    TusenFryd to build swing launch coaster for 2021

    Some very optimistic speculation in this topic. It'll be a solid ride. Not spectacular, not game-changing, but a ride that the park really needs. Parques Reunidos have a habit of doing this, and I don't expect anything different from them this time around.

    Chessington World Of Adventures Have Revealed Elmer's Flying Jumbos In 2020

    I think I know why. I quote from the article: "The first-ever Elmer theme park ride will open at Cheddington World of Adventures in 2020, headlining a full year of activity for the beloved storybook brand. " Quite frankly, it's disappointing that Coasterforce has clearly missed this new theme...

    Knightmare is now scrap metal, y'all can stop wondering

    The only thing going for Knightmare is that it doesn't have this on its doorstep.

    My choice also. Shame it had to go, but it was tearing itself apart.

    Tonnerre de Zeus to be Renovated for 2021?

    Agreed with a lot of the comments so far. Zeus isn't the ride it once was because of all that's been built in the last 10 years or so, but it's still good fun in a beat-the-crap-out-of-you way. And knowing how much capital the park are investing in the launched Intamin cred, I'd be staggered if...
