    Thorpe Park Fright Nights 20th Anniversary

    Went with some mates last weekend. The shows weren't for me but the atmosphere and the performers were great. Loved the walk throughs and the scare zones. First time I'd done Fright Nights in 4 years and found the mazes a little disappointing. Scarce actors throughout, trailers felt cheap and...

    really hurts me that you've managed to beat my cred count in a single trip. on the other hand, its been fantastic reading through your posts and experiencing it all second hand.

    Universal Studios Beijing | 2021

    Agree with the comments above. A real shame that the clear intentions of the aviary are wasted with blocky catwalks - even if they were fine mesh treads it would at least save some of the effect. What looks better? These: Or this: I think the intention here was clear. A similar effect...

    "Now Showing"

    saw The Suicide Squad in the BFI with a couple mates. As has been said, it was quite a fun movie, definitely one of DCs lighter ones in terms of how dark and dingy the universe can be, but also I did feel like it was a bit disjointed. Lots of fun tho. Jungle Cruise - kinda similar tbh, it was...

    Parc Astérix | Toutatis | Intamin Launch Coaster | 2023

    I am so mad that parc asterix are doing a neolithic themed coaster. Was such a gaping gap in the theme park world to do a theme on druids and pagans and standing stones, was gonna be my break out RCT3 > real life concept and i feel liked ive been ROBBED (its gonna be so cool im so mad)

    Spike/switch-track coasters

    ^ maybe a happy side effect but on some rides it helps increase the ride length, and reduce the total throughput in an hour, which takes the pressure off attendants and operators as they'll have a bigger window to dispatch a train without stacking.

    As the predicted queue line ever been wrong and it's taken longer than the expected time ?

    Interesting to hear how in your experience these tools are used vastly differently/have a different viewpoint on positions. At fasttrack positions where you join the main & fast track queue together, throughout busy days those slips of paper are given to this staff member as they tend to be the...

    As the predicted queue line ever been wrong and it's taken longer than the expected time ?

    It’s been impossible to determine accurate queue times with social distancing and Covid cleaning measures in place. Should start to get back to normal again now. park dependant there is different procedures in place for queue times. At merlin parks, towards the last 90 minutes of the day you...

    What is the most surprising airtime moment you’ve experienced in your enthusiast career?

    plain and simply: my first RMC. Done a whole bunch of renowned air time machines but i still vividly remember being launched over that first drop and literally thinking 'im gonna land in the car park'. Of course, not at all surprising that it happened, but the sheer intensity of it was...

    Alton towers 10/08/21 - A dismal birthday

    It's an unfortunate reality that at the moment, companies which rely on customer facing roles are in a rather tricky stranglehold with Covid-19 self isolation procedures which still have to be enforced. It means that in example, theme parks, are stretched thin on workers if there's any contact...

    CWOA | Project Amazon | B&M Wing Coaster (Jumanji Land?)| 2023

    Backing @Jared on a lot of his points. He is a a reliable source with Chessington info, don't get it twisted. Just because the drawings have, what in architecture is called a dictating/depicting arrow, it doesn't mean its a fact. If you look at the lines in the back air gates, you'll see that...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Anyone who's visited the south of London recently will have seen a very distinct fried egg tag dotted about the city. It's on sainsburys delivery vans. It's on railway stations. It's on shop shutters. It's on corners, hell, it was even on the gatwick trainline bridge over the m25 for a while...

    Do you ever regret becoming a theme park enthusiast? Are there cons to this hobby?

    i think the only thing i dislike about it is branching away from discords and forums, there always seems to be a level of toxicity on social media platforms. Petty squabbles between different cliques, allegation upon accusation of predators, and just general personal stuff that I have no...

    Six Flags Fiesta Texas | Dr. Diabolical's Cliffhanger | B&M Dive Coaster | 2022

    Can already hear the engineers slamming their tea cups back into their suacers, removing their monocle and scoffing in distaste at the fact that an odd number of seats per row and a beyond vertical drop couldn't be considered cutting edge enough for a B&M
