    Mumbo Jumbo stalls upside down!!

    Apologies was another article I saw it on. And Mumbo has a portable air tank that is simply plugged into a 2nd air intake that is separate to the usual one and a key switch for each individual restraint.

    Mumbo Jumbo stalls upside down!!

    And if you read the article properly you'll see it says theres 2 cars involved, a 2nd one stopped either on the lift or the block brakes before that section. A poncho in the wheels can quite easily stop a coaster.

    Favourite UK Park

    Flamingoland. It's the only park I can go to and ride absolutly nothing yet still not be bored. Lost Kingdoms atmosphere is immense and I can sit there for hours just listening to the music and watching Kumali.

    Music Recommendations

    ^Acrobat is a awesome song I've just got hold of Arctic Monkeys new album and wow. What a change from the repetitiveness of the first album. Brianstorm is just a taster of the whole thing.

    Which is the UK's best flat ride?

    My all time favorite is any Space Roller on a decent setting. Today I developed a bit of a soft spot for Navigator some strange reason and I'd say was my third favorite after Bling and the Beast. Anyone who votes Circulator needs shooting.

    UK's Best Tower Ride

    It's a tough call between Cliffhanger and Venom. Venom had a **** load of airtime with a loose restraint but was just too short. Cliffhanger has the nice bit of floater on the shot and a amazing amount of airtime on the drop. That said Cliffhanger.

    Is Rita Rough?

    I get my neck slammed into the restraints as well and I ain't exactly huge. That turn into the brakes ain't banked enough or someting so your neck gets smashed. Corkie turn is pretty rough as well. The purple train however is rougher than the blue one somehow.

    Is Rita Rough?

    Theres no way to hold it up Joey. As soon as you hit corkie turn the g's just push it down. I end up with it being on its lowest by the end. Exact same happens to me on Stealth as well.
