    Alton Towers and Thorpe Park Rumoured To Get Lego Themed Areas For 2020

    While I doubt this will happen the idea of Merlin putting a smaller version of something they've already got within an hour's drive is not unprecedented.

    It’s making me nostalgic for the Trocadero Centre

    Yeah, some of the papers have had information about Thunderbirds attractions. Paramount have been through a few changes themselves in the last few years so have different people in charge now.

    That’s the second prize. First prize is the same but you get to borrow a towel too.

    If the music is commercially available and the park pays PRS they can play what they want.

    Hahaha! It looked rusty because it was rusty!

    Not necessarily. Now he’s got nothing else to do, Jeremy could apply to be a ride op.

    A Trip to the Theatre

    Currently due to close on 14th September but selling quite well and word-of-mouth is good so may stick around a bit longer.

    Lots of opportunities - walk down Coronation Street and sit in the Rovers, or pretend you're sat with Simon Cowell on the BGT set, or recreate the Bushtucker Trials from I'm A Celebrity! All totally unique experiences never done before, ever.

    Why do England-themed areas in world-themed parks never contain thrill rides?

    More to the point is that Epcot is supposed to be the United Kingdom but apart from a brief nod to Yorkshire and Stratford is pretty much Ye Olde London. Where are the Welsh? The Scots? They should build a replica of Edinburgh Castle and put some sort of wizarding ride in it...

    Why did Noah's Ark close in Blackpool

    It's still there - on top of the entrance block. The theming used to go all the way down but now it's basically the roof.

    IOA | Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure | Intamin LSM Launch (Dragon Challenge replacement)

    Could that be deliberate? Universal Studios is built around the whole concept of fake sets, blurring the line between movie magic and real-life practicalities, and revealing the backstage to you.

    A Trip to the Theatre

    I think Disney would have loved to have a musical "from the writer of Wicked" on Broadway but I think in the end it was unviable and, sadly, the stage version doesn't quite work - unable to go as dark as it needs to, but without having the kids appeal of Lion King and Aladdin.

    Google Runs Google Home Dark Ride At CES

    The ride looks fine, but the station looks like the sperm sequence from Woody Allen's Everything You Wanted To Know About Sex*

    It looks like it's been painted to be as anonymous as possible, to try and blend in with the trees and sky around it.

    Blackpool Central Leisure Development- Announcement Imminent

    But wouldn't Pleasure Beach complain? I know all's fair in business and all but I would think BPB after years of promoting and investing in the town would prefer something that doesn't much overlap with what they do.

    Blackpool Central Leisure Development- Announcement Imminent

    Chariots of the Gods was a big thing in the 70s (like Blackpool!) in which the author Erik Von Daniken declared alien civilizations had built the pyramids, aztec cities, Atlantis, etc. All bunkum, of course, but people believed it at the time and for a brief period a few years back there was an...
