    Thorpe Park 2024?

    Their really isn’t any evidence of this though, the attendance figures published every year are never 100% accurate and going by this year, that report seems to just be making the figures up. Thorpe is a pretty well performing park in the grand scheme of things, it does a lot better than most...

    Universal Studios Beijing | 2021

    One thing I can’t get my head around is why does this ride need platforms right along the layout, yet non powered suspended coasters don’t? How does that make any sense? It crazy that Universal didn’t challenge this crazy over the top regulation or scrap this ride, because it’s essentially...

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

    You were saying?… In all seriousness though, it’s brilliant to see B&M trying something new and going beyond vertical, hopefully it adds some power back into the dive machines first drop again! I’m hoping it has the older style restraints but going from the concept art, it’s looking very...

    The same happened to my neighbour, it look around 2months for her face to go back to normal again, I can’t comment on whether she’s had her 2nd jab though.

    Why has the UK seemingly been unable to top Nemesis?

    I think it’s honestly that enthusiasts hold onto nostalgia. I’d argue that The Smiler is the better ride of the two in the park, more well liked by the general public too. Then you have the likes of Icon what I’d say is considerably better than Nemesis, but it really does come down to...

    Are the seats on Colossus particularly small?

    They’ve change the restraints slightly this season too, my partner who has always managed to fit on Colossus and had to do the walk of shame last week, despite him slightly loosing weight since last season. He’s 6ft6 so it’s always been a squeeze but this year is even more unforgiving!

    Coaster with the strongest smell?

    Has to be Wickerman for me, it’s the only coaster that I know the smell of without actually being next to it. The smell pods they use has such a strong and distinct smell... I guess it does also help that I’ve the oil for it from Aroma Prime though haha.

    Nemesis! I don’t think I really need to explain why with that one.

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach: Future Predictions

    Was last season actually as much as flop as your making out for them? The summer was insanely busy, a lot busier than I’ve seen it previous years, despite the ‘restricted’ capacity. I do think that last year would have been tough in the closed months for them but whilst they were actually...

    Chessington World Of Adventures | Croc Drop | Zamperla Sky (Drop) Tower

    God forbidden someone’s positive... I have to agree with the comments saying this looks great, it’s exceeded my expectations, so that’s always nice! The croc structure looks pretty impressive and it seems a perfect fit for that area of the park.

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    As of the 29th people will then start to receive their second vaccine jab, hopefully from then onwards we’ll start to notice a slow drop in figures. Blackpool opening weekend is looking less and less likely now...

    Look behind Cyclonator and the staff car park and you can easily see them.

    WTF Merlin?

    Unfortunately it was my friends tires that got slashed, the whole day was horrendous from start to finish but the staff were trying their hardest to keep things under control but either ended up getting verbally abused or attacked in some cases. I know most of you can imagine who the difficult...
