    Fantasy Island (UK) | Spinning Racer | Maurer Spinning Coaster | 2021

    If only they could tour the 'full of spite' SLC... but of course not so maybe this is the boost I need to try the park once more.

    Best Coaster One-Two Punch?

    Anything would struggle to live up to a 4 year epic with and I expect the whole package works. Travel restrictions have prevented more feedback but I will ride both for the fist time as soon as it makes sense to find out. I just wonder if its the whopper of a ride needed to mirror the universal...

    Best Coaster One-Two Punch?

    Fuji Q - If you get to ride just any 2 of the main coasters you will likely be impressed, and ops are potentially getting better so not as much resentment other than historical. I'd go for Fujiyama & Eejanaika I'd go with @Howies pick for magic mountain but again there is so many combinations...

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    It's a crummy name and like many of our airports not even in London. They should tell the newspapers to avoid the comparison as they keep using the term (which I am still sure the resort planted themselves). People who don't know what they are talking about will use the term, imagry of a...

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    " ... We know it causes a lot of angst among some of our fans. But fear not. For years we have been "dubbed" the "UK Disneyland" or "UK's answer to Disneyland". It's been a moniker adopted by many ..." Wasn't it an earlier incarnation of the resort team that coined the phrase (and before they...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    I would be aghast if the Ultimate travels 🤣 A shame the Rat retheme didn't lead to a better alternate future and the park is heading to bland town. Glad the B&M Invert is up for sale, now possible to complete the set one day.

    Plopsaland de Panne | The Ride to Happiness | Mack Xtreme Spinning Coaster | 2021

    That station is Amazing. Candimonium has already set my bar to indifference for silly names so I can live with it and likely get a chuckle once in a while.

    B&M + Disney

    Discontinued is a funny word. Im sure if B&M were asked they would build anything from their past catalogue (perhaps after a quick sales pitch for a winged coaster). However unless a park wanted to be ultra wacky and build a stand up, or extra boring and build a sit down - either for twice the...

    Fuji-Q Announces Major New Coaster for 2022!

    Well that puts a crimp on my idea to have a retirement gap year in Asia as a hand waver in on of the larger parks (free annual pass please...)

    If you could put any roller coaster in your home park, what would it be and where would it go?

    Original 4D in Thorpe. Realistically a terrible idea but they wouldn't have to theme it and will appeal to the target audience. Just put it anywhere that upsets the neighbours the least. I have wanted this for sometime and don't want to crush another dream by revising this with the last decades...

    IP-themed rides that have outgrown their IP?

    Journey to the Centre of the Earth is another (Disney) ride that works on its own merits. It's more of a fun fact to where the inspiration came from than a selling point. Would the lure of Joules Vern ever have make enough people go to a theme park to make a financial benefit who's fans would...

    Bucks Fizz - mix orange juice of your chosen freshness with Champagne, processo or sparkling wine. (Or buy pre mixed and it's cheap as chips). Drinkable any day but extra sparkly on Christmas morning, brunch, lunch, until the bottle runs out really.

    Quality Street; what are your top 3 flavours?

    I couldn't choose between the 2 orange ones for my last vote, so went for fudge.

    Do you have any theme park guilty pleasures?

    Drinking fancy alcohol when I could be riding, truly savouring the visit. Also adds the extra edge when re-riding. Watching station floors move: Turn table loading platforms - staring in a way that makes the turntable appear still, but the bridge over the top is going round it Floorless Roller...

    Could Alton Towers Overhaul Nemesis?

    I recently (finally) watched the channel 4 special "A Roller Coaster Year". The script had the nerve to mention that everyone had their favorites then listing many of the big rides but not Nemesis. How very dare they. Hopefully it doesn't give too much an insight beyond promoting the latest...
