    Your longest theme park hiatus?

    As the 2019 season draws to a close I was thinking, damn I am in serious need of a rollercoaster fix but with no overseas theme park trips coming up anytime soon I guess Olympia Looping will do until March and the 2020 season starts. Then it got me thinking, I haven’t visited a theme park since...

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster

    This was the planning application, clearly grey to blend in with the skyline. They can’t just decide to leave it red when it was approved grey.

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster

    Be great if they stuck a B&M logo on that crate just to mess with everyone's minds.

    The World of David Walliams is coming to Alton Towers

    I know his children’s books are popular so seems a good fit for that area. That area is screaming out for a decent dark ride though and not sure whatever’s going in the wobble world building will cut it. We shall see. Think it’s a paper cut out of this stupid Nemesis image -

    What was the coaster that helped you brave your fears, and what were they?

    Vampire was my first major coaster I ever rode too. It still had the awesome original Bat trains so it must have been around 1999. I remember being pretty scared in the station with the music and the creepy guy playing the organ but I loved it. My first ever coaster with an inversion was...

    Chessington World Of Adventures Submits Plans For Drop Tower

    [emoji44] Didn’t think it would be worth anything other than scrap value. They didn’t sell Ripsaw and it was younger.

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster

    At least we will get a nice red stripe come through when the running wheels scrub the grey paint off 😆

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster

    I'm actually glad it isn't being repainted, these colours are much better than the dull grey colours that were in the plans. The red colour is actually pretty nice, same colour as Rita's track.

    Paultons Park | Tornado Springs | New Area 2020

    Is this got the same trains as Sierra Sidewinder? Why would it need tri-track and Sierra Sidewinder is just fine without it? Although it does look a lot better in tri-track so not complaining. Great to see Paulton's continue to expand.

    Major accident on Quimera at La Feria Chapultepec

    I believe so especially after reading @Pierre post about how regularly the wheels needed changing. Knowing what we know about the Schwarkopf trains post Mind Bender accident, with this particular Schwarkopf coaster being so harsh on the wheels coupled with a park slacking in maintenance, this...

    Walt Disney Studios changes and expansion

    If anything I am just glad these changes secure the ToT for at least a few years longer. I still think Mission Breakout is inevitable at some point for this tower though.

    How often do established parks really add new rides?

    UK enthusiasts were definitely spoiled in the 10 year period from 2002 - 2012. Was an incredibly exciting time with a new major coaster in either AT or TP opening every couple of years. TP are well overdue a coaster, AT have had 2 since Swarm opened but nothing even seems close on the horizon...

    Chessington World Of Adventures Submits Plans For Drop Tower

    There’s as much chance of this being Detonator than Rameses being relocated to Ripsaws empty spot in AT and being advertised as a new ride.. Actually shouldn’t give Merlin ideas.. [emoji23] Another pretty meh investment for a park which is screaming out for something substantial.. At least CWoA...

    ^Cool video, but the trains & restraints aren’t even in the production phase yet? Not like this has been in construction since 2017, or anything..

    Thorpe Park Updates

    To clear this up here’s a PM to me from Undead Creature in 2007 about this exact thing: So basically it wasn’t going to be an Xcelerator clone it would have been the Top Hat and then Rita’s layout but scaled up. As obviously you would have been travelling a lot faster than Rita does so I...
