    Great Coaster Names That Haven't Been Used Yet.

    I'm pretty... (well very) irreligious (well organised religions) and see the word Ascension more as it's Noun form of rising/lifting to a higher place! Besides other religions use the term too, and therefore it's not dissimilar to 'Shambala' as a name!

    All filler - no killer. Well rounded parks with poor headline attractions.

    It really depends if you are a theme park or coaster fan - Efteling and Europa are 2 of my top 5 favourite parks - that's because of their outstanding dark rides and general vibe, but on the coaster front yes - you could say their coasters are fillers, but I won't call the parks themselves fillers.

    The World of David Walliams is coming to Alton Towers

    Very astute reply - and I agree. I just tend to push back a little when I see such things!! For e.g. the assumption that everyone of a minority is offended by certain things and if they're not....they should be! etc But absolutely thats not for here! peace out!

    The World of David Walliams is coming to Alton Towers

    I mean who gets to say what's offensive - I'm gay and never found any of the gay stuff offensive in fact I found it hilarious, and I have black friends who've said the same about that aspect of of the show - the most offended people tend to be middle class white men who didn't really have...

    The most irritating theme park visit ever

    It's worth sending what you've just written to the park or cutting and pasting 'as is' on TripAdvisor!

    Great Coaster Names That Haven't Been Used Yet.

    There needs to be a Hyper-or-Giga coaster called 'Ascension' - that is all!

    Duel at Alton Towers closing on 6th September - retheme or refurbishment for 2023?

    I had exactly the same thought r.e. Conjuring 2 - I too thought its highly unlikely - but as someone pointed out on social media - this is Merlin and they've used the SAW franchise etc before, So who knows - on a personal level I love the conjuring franchise - so its an IP id get behind and if...

    Duel at Alton Towers closing on 6th September - retheme or refurbishment for 2023?

    As long as its not too narrative driven - one reason I prefer the original haunted mansion to Phantom Manor is that the story is a bit more mysterious whilst PM over-eggs the back story so much it's actually more confusing that just a series of random spooky things happening in a haunted house...

    Duel at Alton Towers closing on 6th September - retheme or refurbishment for 2023?

    I really don't think a trackless system is particularly needed having ridden 2 of Europes best ghost trains this year - Hotel psycho at Prater and Bla Taget at Grona Lund possible developments I'd like to see:- have the cars rotate and go backwards for sections like Hotel Psycho's ride...

    Surveying occurring at Paultons Park - potential new attraction?

    Thing with Paultons when I visited - I thought they were in the Cusp of becoming a proper theme park, they really need to scrap the go-carts and off-the-shelf log flume and pull together that end of the park and I think they'd be there! a custom log flume or rapids built with proper...

    What is your "home park" abroad?

    Toverland, Efteling and Europa are my 'at least once a year' parks that don't need any new creds to get me back.....I just need a fix of them, I feel 'at home' in them - I suppose in a similar way people return to same resort each year! As a non driver - Efteling is actually much easier to get...

    Britain and foreign languages

    English is an international language - So all the signage etc you see isn't just for British (and American) people - but because many people in the world have English as a second or third language - they can communicate between themselves using English as 2nd option! A good example of this is...

    Tokyo Disneyland to completely rebuild Space Mountain

    In terms of size/footprint or ride experience? if you mean ride experience they are poles-apart apart from the fact they use a trackless system!

    Tokyo Disneysea - Journey to the Centre of the Earth! Shanghai Disneyland - POTC Disneyland - Indy Moviepark Germany - Mystery River/Excalibur or Area 51 Posthumous mention to Chessington in the mid to late 90's when Rameses Revenge was a headlining flat!

    Tokyo Disneyland to completely rebuild Space Mountain

    I had assumed the expansion pad behind tokyo's tomorrowland would inevitably house a 'Galaxy's edge' star wars land - as it's about the right size, and makes sense right next to tomorrow land. I guess they could squeeze in both!
