    Blackpool Pleasure Beach: Future Predictions

    It could do with a bit of maintenance to be fair! It's a listed structure so not much risk of removal. It's bad news for me though as I'm thinking of going in November and I love that ride, despite all the bumps and bruises.

    The Rig - A roller coaster on an offshore oil rig?

    I think it would be more likely to use an existing platform which has finished production rather than constructing a whole new platform. The oil company would probably actually pay somebody to take it off their hands because decommissioning costs hundreds of millions. Even so this makes no sense...

    Best night rides in the Uk?

    I rode the Wicker Man around 10pm last night and it was absolutely incredible, really hauling, and combined with the special effects it's got to be one of my best ever UK ride experiences. We also got a night time front row ride on Nemesis just before which was amazing, but Wicker Man still wins...

    New rides @ small parks

    Clacton Pier's Looping Star now testing: I'm taking an interest as it might be a handy +1 on my way to Harwich for the ferry to the Netherlands in a couple of weeks.

    Thorpe Park 2024?

    Is it even at the park? Could be completely fake at this point as far as I can tell. I'm not getting on the hype train juust yet.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Damn I was booked to visit both of those parks in 2020. I feel like if I had the creds I wouldn't care! I wonder what would happen to Kiska the Marineland Orca if it does close.

    Closed Season Park's Nov-Feb

    Good topic actually. Disneyland Paris is open all year. I've been looking at doing Jardin D'acclimatation in Feb, their website sort of suggests they're open all year but nothing clear so I emailed them a few days ago to try to confirm. Parc Asterix are doing a Christmas thing but looks like...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Looks like Spinning Racer has moved on from Fantasy Island: It's gone from their website too. Presumably it's travelling again, it would be great if it popped up at Hyde Park this winter but I guess it's probably gone abroad.

    Are ‘alpine coasters’ a bit ****?

    I think I prefer the SoRo (toboggan) types, there's a good sense of speed being so close to the ground and a decent sense of peril. Fforest coaster looks like a pretty cool experience to be fair, so I feel unqualified to answer your question until I've ridden that. I did the one at Stoke Ski...

    Thorpe Park 2024?

    I desperately want to believe it, I really do, but this is not enough to get my hopes up. Incidentally I noticed recently that the Bing aerial views of Thorpe Park had been updated since I made this post, here's the view of the clearing: I recomment having a play, just go to...

    Gyeongju World | Valkyrie | Gerstlauer Family Boomerang | 2021

    I am confused - is this thing a boomerang or a full circuit coaster? At first I thought the track round the top was just to eliminate the risk of derailment (and to give us a laugh when viewed from above 😛), but the pics show the train going around that top corner. Edit: question already...

    How many different number 1s have you had?

    Probably 4: - Corkscrew 2001 ish - Nemesis 2004 - Shambhala 2012 - Hyperion 2018 I think technically Air was my #1 for about 15 minutes before I walked over to Nemesis.

    Dreamworld Australia | Steel Taipan | Modified Blue Fire Clone | 2021

    Am I the only one here who thinks reverse spikes are fun? You get a good little airtime pop on Capitol Bullet and Star Trek. I reckon this will definitely be more fun to ride that the original, plus it looks cool (for the GP). It looks odd though where they have straight track at the end of the...

    Glenwood Caverns Incident

    The good news is that the investigation can be dropped - the Daily Mail have all the answers already.

    Roller Coaster TV Programs and News Articles!

    It made me laugh when they talked about the "unprecedented" scale of construction, while casually cutting in clips of Leviathan 🤔 .
