    Ride Related Dreams You've Had

    Sadly not, though I wouldn't be surprised if it was scrapped and they made Warner-Mir from the leftover steel.

    Ride Related Dreams You've Had

    Last night I had a dream where we found out that the Parque Warner Madrid coaster was a black Mack Xtreme Spinner, with Euro-Mir's trains, and a twister layout (think Taron with the footprint of a Jet Star) and 0-2 inversions. In my head (I hope) I screamed the loudest "YEAH!" of my life. The end.

    Parks you absolutely CAN be arsed with

    I've been trying to get back to Hyde Park Winter Wonderland because I didn't realise I'm missing a credit until I was home ever since I got back from my first visit for this year, almost exactly last week. I know it costs millions (and I know I'm a hypocrite for throwing everything I have at...

    Parks you can't be arsed with

    I [currently] can't be arsed with Disney. I'd love to do all the Disney parks - I think they do genuinely look fantastic, and are clearly world leading parks. My parents never took me because they never knew Disneyland had rides (to be fair Space Mountain does not sound like it's a ride) but...

    Rank the Thorpe Park coasters

    7) Walking Dead (Top 80) - cannot stress how much better X was. 6) Flying Fish (Top 70) - needs no introduction, really. 5) Swarm (Top 25) - fun, but short and locking vests. This used to be over 10 spots lower when it had an apocalyptic bounce in 2020. 4) Colossus (Top 25) - it's alright, not...

    Parks you've done that were difficult to get to

    Some very good ones in here already - a lot of these sound like absolute nightmares! Reminded me of how "strange" Brean is to get to, you see the skyline from miles away but the roads take you everywhere they can go but the park. There we go - I've slightly reworded the original post to help...

    Parks you've done that were difficult to get to

    This'll be interesting - let us know the faffiest park trips you've done. Obviously I won't rank ALL of the parks I've been to (and you don't have to either) but I'll put down the most notable ones: As I do not yet drive this ranking will be majority public transport, but sometimes as a...

    Are you a film buff?

    9. Out of the 250 films on that list, I've seen nine of them. To add insult to injury, a good chunk of those I've only seen the first or second half of. Terrible.

    Milestone Coasters in Your Count

    I recently discovered that Ice Mountain at Hyde Park Winter Wonderland has had two separate pieces of hardware in the building. Upon this discovery I've had a new coaster to add to my count which ultimately changed my #100! My new #100 is Cannonball Express at Pleasurewood Hills and I couldn't...

    Aug/Oct/Nov 2021: East Coast Adventures (Part 4/2)

    Guess I'll start doing this: here's a song I like that reminds me of the park, give it a whirl while reading if you have nothing in the background! Day Super-Bonus!: One of two parks... Here it is, the part 4 none of you have been expecting. I've been extending this trip report as kind of a...

    New coaster concepts that you think would be cool

    This whole thing actually reminds me of a theme park I imagined in my head when I was around 11-12, called "RockLand". All of the flats and coasters had two modes: the standard mode, and what pre-teen me called 'The Modify'. The Modify was essentially a small poke at the ride system to make...

    New coaster concepts that you think would be cool

    -SBF spinner with self-rotating seats on the end similar to Lightning 360. Concept Art -Tilt track that tilts to face you upwards, then sends you backwards. Great opportunity for a fake-out. Concept Art

    Rides You Can No Longer Handle?

    Anything that has a downward movement while you're facing upright. I damn near threw up on a Miami Trip and Fireball at Adventure Island. Quantum at Thorpe is quite but not as bad for it too which is a shame because it's pretty fun. Some rides do it too (Boosters and Topspins) but they happen...

    Drayton Manor 2022

    As long as it's not replaced by a Disko I'll be happy. Nothing against them but there are thousands of them across the country so it would be nice to see a bit more variety.

    Legoland CA "Big" Addition Announcement/Teasing

    I'm sold on it being something to do with Norse mythology.

    Thorpe Park 2024?

    If anything I'd like the Thorpe coaster to have absolutely no inversions not even one. While the coasters are good 4/5 of them rely pretty heavily inversions due to the nature of their ride type (Saw does have very good pops of air, but the point still stands). So building another coaster that...

    Thorpe Park 2024?

    Alright you got me there, that does look like it would be a fantastic ride. I have to admit I almost said I really wanted to see a Gravity Group but then I remembered "why would Merlin bounce from GCI if they're happy with how Wicker Man turned out?". Of course if they weren't happy it would be...

    Thorpe Park 2024?

    My only fear with the Thorpe GCI is that GCI really loves their swooping turns. I'd love to see something a bit (a lot) more airtime based, if the layout's just turns and turns I'll be pretty sad. Wicker Man integrates the turns absolutely fantastically into its layout, but would Thorpe be a...
