I completely agree, and it’s the main reason I’m not prepared to organise a visit - when you add it all in, the risk of only getting 6 hours in the park and I don’t feel getting just 6 rides in as good value for money.
I’ll just save my money and wait to it’s suitable to head over to Europe.
Most be a slow news day when the 4th most read article on the BBC News website is of the Grand National at Blackpool Pleasure Beach being evacuated on the lift Hill.
One of the affected rider has criticised the park for offering only a...
@Hixee - very true and I have no points to come back at that one!
Well - it probably boils down to the fact the UK is seemingly just over complicating it again with a coaster installation which doesn’t need to be anything special or specific - just a crowd pleaser with a semi decent length...
While it’s great to speculate on which manufacture will ultimately win the contract. I can’t help but think B&M might have the upper hand here - yes it’s an odd ball choice for them.
But their long term reliability speaks massively- especially for a company like Merlin whom wouldn’t want to be...
While it is fantastic this is already testing; but yet I can’t seem to get excited for a mine train without any kind of rock-work theming - it just comes across as bland and boring, and quite frankly these should just be fun and a pleasure to experience.
Thank you for the POV @FABH - this truly does look extremely graceful and just pure bliss!
The world needs more coasters like this... nothing overly serious or trying to exist just to be a record breaker - and there must be something to say for that.
But maintaining attendance is equally as important as trying to get more people through the gates?
I really don’t think you can class it as a flop just because there wasn’t a sharp rise in attendance figures - there is far too many other factors involved.
A flop in my eyes would be when the GP...
Fits in there rather nicely, fingers crossed there is a more permanent additions added soon.
I’m also hoping the opening hours are sorted soon - as its the main reason stopping me from thinking about going mid week.
BBC also have an article on the ruling.
"During a sentencing hearing at Stafford Crown Court on Thursday, Mr Justice Spencer said: "This was an utterly tragic waste of a young life."
He added there was "no prospect of the fine...
I’ve not actually managed the trip up to Skegness yet; so this is a welcome addition - plus I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for these little spinners.
Fingers crossed the new coaster at flamingos opens this year and I can do a combine trip to tick both parks off the list.
Adventure Island, Southend was given a few million in funding in 2017 from the government - so it’s likely other parks might of had some at some point.
I personally just put it down to the overall cost of running a business in the UK. Labour is expensive, insurance is expensive, energy is expensive and land rent is expensive.
And probably the most important thing, the cost of building is ridiculous expensive in the UK.
Combined with the fact...
