    Thorpe Park 2024 - new coaster?

    I know right, I thought mentioning it was a safe bet here but I've opened a can of worms! 😂 Get your final predictions in before tomorrow! I just hope it's something substantial, not too short, fun and highly re-rideable (so no weird gimmicks or roughness within a year or two).

    Thorpe Park 2024 - new coaster?

    Ok guys calm down, it was just an example of a popular coaster of that ride type. Didn't mean literally build a clone with all the theming. Knew I shouldn't have waded into this thread. 😂

    Thorpe Park 2024 - new coaster?

    I can't see Merlin going for an RMC somehow. They seem a bit violent considering their aversion to lapbar inversions. I can imagine loads of people complaining that it's too violent or not very re-rideable. I know they work elsewhere but I just can't see it. I'd be happy with any of the...

    Thanks for your insight! Carters are great, they've been doing wonders for the vintage ride scene recently!

    Dreamland Margate’s Future

    Interesting. I've never heard a bad word about Littleboys until now. They seem to end up with all the old rides so hopefully they're having less issues with everything else that's been through them. @dj-fireball999 is there anyone you'd recommend for this type of work who you think is better? I...

    Notable Losses Since 2001

    This reminds me, I haven't seen anything about the shuttle loop in a while which is a little concerning. Wasn't it rumoured to be going to Clementon?

    CoasterBot 2021 Poll

    Managed to rank 50 but I'd say the last 30 or so we're just a collection of rides I like about the same amount but it's nice to give some voting weight to all the coasters outside of the usual top 10 crowd that are still great. In terms of new coasters Kondaa, RTH and F.L.Y all featured.

    Regina at Tobu Zoo to be revived

    Shame, I was hoping they'd sell it so I didn't have to get fomo from not wanting to ever visit this place.

    GF2021: Bigger, Longer & Uncut - Trip Reports

    I did but the forum still won't let me post photos so just visualise it. I also found a pen and filled in my worksheet so also visualise that! The Karen one cracked me up haha. My funniest moment on Sunday was the random guy who complimented Serena on her wig holding skills! 😂

    GF2021: Bigger, Longer & Uncut - Trip Reports

    Firstly I'd like to say that I had a really good time and it was lovely to see so many people I hadn't seen in ages and meet new people! I definitely made the "nature is healing" joke to someone over weekend because CF lives were finally back! I was expecting it to feel a bit different because...

    If I finish my costume by then, then yes! I think a number of people have costume plans!

    GhosterForce 2021: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

    Costume supplies have been acquired! We shall see how that goes! Who else is dressing up for Thorpe? (Also a reminder that I still have a chessie ticket that needs a home! 😇)

    GhosterForce 2021: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

    I have a spare chessie ticket at the 2-4-1 discount price (and parking) going as I caved and bought a MAP so I can be fancy. I have checked with merlin and it's fine for someone else to use. Pm me if interested!

    Glenwood Caverns Incident

    I had a glance over the waiver and there's a section about halfway down that is somewhat concerning amongst all the stuff you'd expect. "THE UNDERSIGNED recognize that seat belts are required on the ZIP LINE/RIDER, HAUNTED MINE DROP, GLENWOOD CANYON FLYER SWING, ALPINE COASTER, and/or GIANT...

    Maybe we could do optional spooky themed outfits or accessories on the chessie day? 🎃

    GhosterForce 2021: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

    @chainedbanana and I have chessie and creepy caves tickets. Not decided which mazes to do at Thorpe yet so will sort that in due course.

    Woman injured after metal object strikes her from Top Thrill Dragster train.

    It looks similar to some of the pieces here: It's hard to articulate how horrible this all is. What an absolute nightmare scenario. Hope the injured guest pulls through.
