    TEA 2019 report is out

    Always love going through the attendance report that TEA/AECOM put out every year. Link to report I noticed a few errors this year. There's a picture on pages 24/25 which caption it as being Cedar Point when it's Kings Island. Also saw Efteling mentioned as being in Belgium, big whoops. It...

    Mystery Coaster Bus Tour - Germany 2019

    In August 8 of us took a 4 day trip around East Germany in a huge hire van/bus. It was full of creds and antics and at some point I will write up about the trip. For the time being here is a video I put together... I think Rachel has a video lurking on the internets too.

    Disneyland Paris 2018 seasons

    For those that don't know, I have an annual pass to Disneyland Paris. Throughout the year they kept on adding exciting events so we found ourselves just going back more than usual. We visited 6 times in total which I think pushed our limit and it'll be drastically reduced the next year or two...

    Poland September 2018

    Wednesday 19th The day after getting back to London from the UAE it was back on a plane and over to Krakow. We got to our Air Bnb pretty late at night so we didn't really get to see anything until the next day. The place was kinda perfect, short walk from the train station and the town centre...

    UAE September 2018

    Patrick and I have been aiming to head out to the UAE to grab the creds for the last year or so and we finally decided to go for it. Catching the end of their Summer we knew the weather would be gross (in terms of heat) but I don't think anything could have prepared us for what we experience (it...

    Surprised this is the first I'm hearing about this but Movieland Park in Italy have built a jeep ride that you drive without any guide rails.

    California October 2017

    The trip started with Joey and I catching a low budget Norwegian airways flight from London to LAX.

    Germany July 2017 - Hansa/Movie/Phanta

    Saturday 15th Just a travel day where I met up with Mike and we got a flight from Stansted to Hamburg. Pretty non-eventful. The hotel was right near the train station and we struggled to sleep due to a loud bar/club that was blasting music till 3am. Urgh. Sunday 16th After getting something...

    So Singapore has been somewhere I've wanted to go for many years and I had several plans that fell through due to costs etc. In January Patrick and I randomly decided to just book something so we ended up booking a two week trip in March and added in Taiwan to mix things up a bit. It was a...

    S&S posted a video on Youtube (which was taken down) of a new launch coaster. Apparently the location matches that for Linnanmaki, so maybe we could be seeing this or something else opening at the park in the next few years? Someone managed to re-post the video...
