    A New Chapter in China #3 - Part 7: Sun Tribe

    Glad to hear the Mack is indeed as good as it looks - Beyond The Cloud is top of my list for my China trip this September, though I'm pretty worried about it spiting after your experiences...

    Katowice and Virtue (Legendia, Energylandia) - April/May 2024

    Day 2 - Energylandia My day at Energylandia, mercifully, required much less of an earlier start than the day prior. Energylandia, via BuzzBus, run an inexpensive once-a-day direct coach service from Katowice centre to the park. The bus was a bit late, both arriving at Energylandia and back in...

    Katowice and Virtue (Legendia, Energylandia) - April/May 2024

    Intro Picture the scene: it's late March and you're a stressed engineering student deep in the throes of revision. You just found out that Hyperia at Thorpe Park, who's opening was one of your potential theme park highlights of the year, will now be delayed until dangerously close to the start...

    Paris to Plopsa - April 2024

    Day 3 - Plopsaland De Panne (AKA: Everything Goes Wrong) From the genesis of the trip, I knew that directly before or after my time in Paris would be ideal for hitting a more substantial park. As my Plopsaland annual pass was set to expire a week after the trip, I felt that it would be simply...

    Paris to Plopsa - April 2024

    Day 2 - Foire du Trône On Paris marathon day, one of the non-runners in my group had selected a few ideal points on the route to cheer our runner on. Upon arriving at the first stop (about the 10k mark), our exit from the subway was greeted by a large sign with what appeared to be a...

    Paris to Plopsa - April 2024

    Intro One of my friends from university running the Paris marathon provided the ideal excuse for a group holiday. Being the shameless cred whore that I am, I added in a few diversions in search of new coasters to add to the count. My story begins in Beauvais – cheap flights from Manchester...

    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    When are people betting on this being open? Supposedly staff onsite have claimed the project is "still on track" for a Spring opening - that said, that's a pretty wide window and there looks to be quite some work left to go. Desperate to ride this thing ASAP, but equally I remember The Smiler's...

    Ain't it great? (Japan Megatrip) - December 2023

    TDolphin is a below average Intamin hyper with an iconic setting, whereas Panic Coaster is an above average little family coaster with a fun theme. Whilst TDolphin is worse relative to it's ride type, I think I still preferred it overall. I also can't help but feel that Gekion proved the...

    Ain't it great? (Japan Megatrip) - December 2023

    Day 7 - Tokyo and Hanayashiki Asakusa I tried to hit Hanayashiki in the first stretch of my trip whilst visiting Senso-Ji temple, but I arrived at the gate to find it very much closed. Ah well, I’ll be back. Fast forward basically 2 weeks and I was indeed back. The park itself is fantastically...

    Ain't it great? (Japan Megatrip) - December 2023

    Day 6 - Fuji-Q Highland My final big stop of the trip was Fuji-Q. They’re home to a selection of Japan’s best coasters, with Eejanaika being my single most anticipated ride of the trip. That said, they’re also notorious for their awful operations and ride downtime. Did it live up to the hype...

    Ain't it great? (Japan Megatrip) - December 2023

    Day 5 - DisneySea Being somewhat strapped for time on this trip, I had decided to only do one of the two Tokyo Disney parks. Being the more unique of the two, DisneySea was the obvious choice. Previously, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting two Disney Resorts, Paris and Florida, though Paris is...

    Ain't it great? (Japan Megatrip) - December 2023

    Day 4 - Yokohama and Odaiba Originally on this day I had been planning to go to a train station in the middle of nowhere, Yairo, to follow in the footsteps of Jet Lag: The Game. Upon reviewing my itinerary a few weeks before I left, I decided that a 4 hour round trip Shinkansen to go to the...

    Ain't it great? (Japan Megatrip) - December 2023

    Day 3 - Nagashima Spa Land My day visiting Nagashima Spa Land began with a 5:40am alarm. Urgh. Bags packed and armed with a miscellaneous set of 7/11 snacks, I hopped on the metro to Shin Osaka then headed to Nagoya. Nagashima became part of my trip itinerary as an enroute stop on my day in...

    Ain't it great? (Japan Megatrip) - December 2023

    Day 2 - Universal Studios Japan (USJ) My week or so of sightseeing across Japan was just coming to an end. Me and my trip partner spent time in Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, Nara and Hiroshima, finally ending up in Osaka. After I sadly said my goodbyes and she headed on to Hong Kong, I began to gear up...

    Ain't it great? (Japan Megatrip) - December 2023

    Intro It's been a while since I travelled beyond Europe. After spending most of my Summer working in Oxford, I knew I'd have the some spare funds and the desire to do something unforgettable with them. Whenever I was off the clock, I was planning. This lead to a couple of small scale trips...

    Turkish Delights (Vialand, Land of Legends) - July 2022

    Intro In July 2022, I visited Turkey with family - it was my first international trip for a long time, and I had a great time visiting Istanbul, Cappadocia and Antalya. Despite not primarily being a theme park excursion, of course I managed to squeeze a few visits in! I'm mainly writing this...

    Alton Towers ride closures

    My personal prediction is that in 2017 we could see a MACK water coaster. I will admit, it's a shot in the dark but it would give them, honestly, a much better water ride that also could have the adjustable splash for when we have the usual terrible English weather. I guess I'm sad to see it go...

    What is the Best B&M Inverted Coaster?

    For me, my list goes as follows. I've only managed to ride 3 inverts as I live in the UK. 1. Nemesis - Nemesis is located in my "home park" so I get to ride quite frequently. Despite it's roughness, the sheer intensity of Nemesis remains unmatched for me, the only ride that's come close is...

    Alton Towers Fireworks Trip Report - 7/11/15

    Fireworks review I began my day in Forbidden Valley on Air. I was lucky enough to get in a front and back row ride within roughly half an hour, so I was quite pleased. The shop was shut off, so there were no onride photos, but I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. I didn't have my final flight until...
