    Liseberg Future Additions

    The water park and hotel are happening, just a case of when they happen and not if they happen. I wouldn't be expecting any new coasters for a while, like Ben, I was told similar that it will be five years minimum and that was said to me in June 2018 and then along the same lines again a few...

    Walibi Holland | Untamed | RMC Robin Hood Conversion

    Thanks for sharing @CrashCoaster! I still have my concerns about the restraint style on RMC coasters, but as far as the layout goes, it looks like an incredible coaster and I can't wait to get back over there for the Untamed opening day!

    Alton Towers Dungeon

    I was invited to the meet the makers press event by Alton Towers on Tuesday 12th March 2019 and was able to film in some of the Alton Towers Dungeon scenes, including some of the actor scenes! During the press event everyone got to hear from two of the lead people involved with the project, my...

    CF Lives 2019 Ideas Topic

    I just wanted to pick up on the quoted comment from Ben, I agree with the majority of his post to be honest but this in particular is something I wanted to pick up on. My interest in attending CoasterForce Live trips (back in 2004) came from the videos that Dan originally put out followed by the...

    Unknown ride cars on the right of valhalla.

    I don't think you saw anything other than retired Pleasure Beach ride vehicles.

    Unknown ride cars on the right of valhalla.

    Fake news, the Big One trains were taken off the track yesterday morning ready for inspection and re-work over the closed season, we were given an insight into the kind of work that'll be done on those ready for 2019 at our recent Pleasure Beach Experience club event by the park's technical...

    Linnanmäki | Taiga | Intamin LSM Launch Coaster

    Intamin Vice-President Sascha Czibulka and Ride Designer Camiel Bilsen spoke with me at the recent IAAPA European Attractions Show, in Amsterdam. I spoke to Sascha and Camiel about Taiga at Linnanmäki as well as launch coasters in general and how the technology of those has evolved over time.

    Liseberg | Valkyria | B&M Dive Coaster

    The last time I asked about it, I was told they'd have more information in the early days of August.

    ICON BELIEVE IT! | Trip Reports

    It's been over ten years since I did any sort of meet up with CoasterForce so to be able to organise a joint ERT on Icon with Ian was great! I enjoyed the fact that we did a couple of ride takeover's on the Big One and Valhalla after the ERTs, I am not really a Valhalla fan but watching everyone...

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

    I got the timing's through from Pleasure Beach earlier on today; 09:00am - Meet at Information Desk in the Casino Building for registration 09:30am - ICON ERT (30 mins) Honestly have no idea how it'll work in terms of getting off and going on again, I am hopeful it'll be done the same way as...

    Top 10(ish): 2020 Edition - page 96

    6ft2 tall, by no means skinny but not that overweight, I spent my teenage years playing football, swimming and running so my thighs are quite 'toned up', so they do tend to get crushed under restraints every now and then. Shambhala's restraints are tight on my thighs but the airtime doesn't...

    Wild Mouse at BPB Closure - R.I.P. 1958-2017

    Pleasure Beach aren't concerned, they know it'll pick up once the school holidays kick in and from there onwards it'll be busy every weekend through to the end of the season. Midweek will be busy at the Pleasure Beach soon when school trip season kicks in there.

    Top 10(ish): 2020 Edition - page 96

    I don't rank SV as a top 10 coaster, it's a weird one for me because I do think its a very good coaster, its relentless, its airtime filled and a very good coaster but the restraints absolutely battered my thighs and that ruined the experience for me to the point of not riding it again during my...

    Wild Mouse at BPB Closure - R.I.P. 1958-2017

    Pleasure Beach will replace the Mouse when they're ready, last month at the Icon media event we managed to interview Nick Thompson for Pleasure Beach Experience and he did tell us planning for the next big thing is well under way; I think there's big changes coming in the North park area of...

    PortAventura Park | Sesame Street: Street Mission | Dark Ride

    I agree, personally I am not that bothered about PortAventura getting a dark ride when a new coaster is badly needed in that park, for such a big park with huge popularity, they do not have anywhere near enough coasters. I suppose we can only hope that 2020 will be the year they decide to build...

    Toverland | Fenix | B&M Wing Coaster

    Thanks for the share, I was asked not to film inside the station or with the transfer track in full view (as in when I was stood next to it), I am really looking forward to seeing the station once its been finished and 'revealed' fully by Toverland. We did head round to the bottom of the lift...

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

    On three trains it isn't going to be over crowded, think about how quickly Pleasure Beach shifted 500 boarding pass holders in just under 40 minutes on the first day of the VIP rides. PBE and CF are coming together for this event, Ian mentioned it on the first page. :)

    Is Social Media changing enthusiasts?

    I don’t see how vlogs and people filming reviews/opinions about theme parks, rides and so on is actually an issue. You could say I’m biased because I film vlogs and reviews alongside theme park content, but I don’t see what the issue with people vlogging is, it happens in all walks of life not...
