    New rides @ small parks

    ^Oh well. +1. And +2 for you if you can find Wx6.

    New rides @ small parks

    Sad news. Unless it has had the best glow up in wacky worm history... Wallis's Wonderful Wriggling Wirral Wacky Worm is no more. Looks like it’s now a Wacky Whale/Silly Shark.

    New rides @ small parks

    I'm delighted about this. Not just for the credonomics of having to drive down for Camel Creek's +2, but also because I can tie in to a night out/DJing in Bristol when everything opens fully.

    Craving an Average Park

    Never thought I'd say this, but weirdly I'm in no rush at all to get to any park. I'm sure I'll get some trips planned in for later this year for a few UK parks, or do a last minute visit on a day off, but I've written off any travel plans abroad I may have been harbouring until 2022 at the...

    Rides at Buffalo Bill's Casino closed until further notice

    @gavin you forgot this super sleuth.

    Who has conquered the U.S.?

    I've done 483 across the US, and because it's been so long since I last visited some of the places I've already been to, I've still got some big areas to pick up a few more. I've not been to California or Florida in 15 years so there's loads of new ones there, and I've still got oodles of creds...

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

    Not gonna lie, I'm delighted I've ridden this already so I don't have to go back to Skegness. But for anyone who's not been to Fantasy Island before and/or is happy to drive to a lot of nothing, then it's a half decent +1. There are some better, but many much worse examples of this cred.

    Icon at Blackpool Pleasure Beach; overrated or underappreciated?

    Copy and paste everything that @Ian said. This was the ride that Blackpool Pleasure Beach was crying out for, and I'm delighted it's finally got a decent coaster that belongs in this century.

    Notable Losses Since 2001

    Eagle Fortress was sad to see get pulled down, but inevitable given how much faster the ride was running that it was designed to. It was tearing itself apart. Which is a huge shame, because it was the best Arrow Suspended coaster ever, one of the best coasters ever, and only a few lucky folks...

    Cheetah at Wild Adventures retired

    I went to Wild Adventures back in 2006, but Cheetah was having maintenance done so didn't get to ride. Can't say I was that bothered then, and I'm not bothered now that it's going. And from everyone I know who's been on it, it was pretty terrible. Which is pretty much par for the course for...

    LWV confirm removal of several rides

    I remember an interview from Colin Bryan of Drayton Manor talking about when the park's owners invested in the shopping village, and that nearly sent them over the edge about 20 years ago, so this is a bit of a running theme for the park, whoever's in charge of it.

    World's Loudest Coaster?

    I'll go for Superman at SFMM as well. Even 15 years since I rode it, it's still the loudest ride I've ever heard. And I'm including CFers screaming on pirate ships.

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

    This is full-on fab. Who cares if the name is a bit weird, the memes are gonna be great.

    What would be your dream theme in a theme park?

    I'd love to see a Blade Runner themed area. Obviously it will go way over budget and not recoup anywhere near the money that it should, but it will get great reviews and look incredible.

    Your Favourite Ever CF Lives

    There's not much more than I can really add to all the awesome stuff that everyone's mentioned so far, but as the person who had the idea of getting a bunch of like-minded folk off the internet and together for real in 2003, it's been a huge part of my life. It's brought people together, been...

    WTF Merlin?

    Yet again, this all comes back to management ensuring that staff are trained and capable of carrying out these policies.

    Your Wacky Worm Count.

    Mine is 5.9%. One in every 16.68 of my creds is a Wacky Worm.

    Your Wacky Worm Count.

    80. I'm gonna get to the 100 club and then I'm retiring.
