    Lynx, my first go at NoLimits

    I've often browsed this forum and been very impressed by the work done by CFers. So I thought I'd give it a go. I'm looking for criticism of my track work and shaping, and to a lesser extent realism of supports. I'm not too interested in scenery, colours and whether you enjoyed the layout...

    Alton Towers Trouble

    I'm hearing through Facebook that there was a "major incident" at Alton tonight. A large fight and stuff being thrown and broken. Large police presence also. Was anyone there or know what was happening? Edit: Also heard that a guy was urinating in the Air tunnel... Seems like a risky place, I...

    I'm planning a holiday in the Netherlands. How many days would you recommend I spend in Efteling? Can it be fully enjoyed in one? Or does it really need 2 or even 3 days? I like to take it easy in parks and enjoy the scenery and many smaller attractions that give the place personality. I'm not...

    Ride Hopper on Android

    I've been using an app called "Ride Hopper" (lite version) on my android. It's a user based queue time notifier. It's pretty neat but needs people at the parks to keep it accurate. For instance, sitting at home I can tell you that Saw is down and Colossus is queuing for 95mins. Pretty cool...

    Europa Park Report (May/June 2010)

    My girlfriend and I took our main holiday this year in The Black Forest. As enthusiasts we try to take holiday's near parks, but we're also very keen to see the area and have a proper holiday too. I'll keep most of the report down to the park, don't worry, but we stayed in a town called...

    Europa Park Tips and Tricks.

    At the end of the month I'll be heading out to Germany for a well deserved holiday and a couple of days in Europa Park. So my question is simple, any advice? Things like what queues badly and when, what's worth avoiding or doing? Good places to eat? Anything else cool in the local area? Car...

    Thought of this general poll because a friend of mine had his first migraine yesterday whereas I've been getting them since I was 14. According to the NHS only 1 in 12 men get them, and 1 in 4 women. I am supprised at the male statistic, but maybe because I've been getting them so long that...

    Most Ridden Manufacturer

    I was just think about those statistics Roomraider posted a while back and how Vekoma built 30% (or thereabouts) of coasters in the world. This got me wondering how this worked out practically for the CF community. So, go through your coaster count and tell us which manufacturer's rides...

    Oakwood - 19/08/09

    We were bored. So the next day my girlfriend and I drove off with our tent to visit Oakwood, as we'd never been there before. We camped at a campsite owned by my girlfriends Aunt and Uncle which is about 45mins away from Oakwood.], called Plas-Y-Wern. I'm sure we could have got closer, but it...

    Lightwater Valley - 04/08/09

    I've just written a quite detailed and may I say funny account of my recent Lightwater Valley trip. Then lost it with reckless use of my F5 key! I really don't want to write it all again right now... so here is an abridged version: Went to Lightwater Valley. Had to wait for car park gates...

    Flamingo Land - 03/08/09

    We arrived at Flamingo Land at about 9:20 and although the park wasn't advertised to open until 9:30, they let us straight in with our e-tickets. After a little wander around snapping photos we decided to go wait for Mumbo Jumbo to open, figuring a quick early queue. We were 4th and...

    I experienced my first rollback yesterday on The Ultimate. Didn't quite make it to latching onto the second chain lift. We were sat there for a while before a JCB and a mini bus showed up, to drive us back to the station whilst the JCB towed the train up onto the lift. We were then given a...
