There is an emergency meeting tomorrow where big changes are expected in the ownership and running of the park.
Could it even come to the point where they say enough is enough?

They bought the parks in 2009.
Not sure if this deserved its own topic or not but done one anyway.

What do you recon is the most known coaster in the world?

I was doing a search on Google to find out coasters I have been on in Wales and found this coaster, I have not been on it just wondered if anyone has. It is rather strange.

I am not getting the pass as I have no plans to go to the parks enough, GF might be my only visit to Thorpe and Chessington all year.
We might go to Alton if there is a live there...
