    Worst coasters you've ridden (Bottom 5/10)

    Bandit at Movie Park in Germany was pretty terrible, a boring ride and rough as a badgers badger, only went on it once, wish I hadn't bothered at all.

    Your first Drop Tower experience

    I'm thinking of Ice Blast at Blackpool, although it was probably called Playstation back then! Nothing fancy or exotic I'm afraid.

    Gigs 'n' Tours

    That's the Holmfirth Picturedrome, seen a few bands there as I lived around four miles down the road until January, not a bad little venue is it?

    Gigs 'n' Tours

    Saw guns n' roses in Glasgow last month, it was brilliant, they played three hours, finishing at 1:30am. Download Festival a couple of weeks ago as well, also brilliant, despite the weather! Haven't got anything else planned for the future - desperate for an update on when Iron Maiden will be...

    Longest Queue and Most Excessive Switchbacks

    Rita and Thirteen at Alton Towers are pretty hefty, switch back wise, and now because the queue lines intermingle, when they are both busy, it can look horrendous. MF at Cedar Point though, I believe they removed a good section of the queue line a few years ago, but it used to be totally vast.

    What's the worst station you've been in

    Bandit at Movie Park was just a free for all and a bit crap, but Shockwave at Drayton Manor is the worst for sure, it's red hot, cramped and just crappy to the max.

    Longest Queue Time?

    9/11 EDL & Muslim Extremists

    The fact is this, if these islamistc extremists or who ever they are, where to to return to their country of origin (if born outside the UK), this kind of behaviour, revolt agains the "norm" for example, wouldn't be tolerated, look at Libya and Syria for example, they would be in deep...

    Magic World, Moscow - Planned "Destination theme park"

    They were backwards when they arrested us for not carrying our papers, and we were poor after the police took all our money from us in some Moscow gulag.

    Rides that you are no longer arsed about

    Just about any top spin, anywhere, really, most of them are run on lame settings, the only one that was ever decent was as Chessington on the Wardley Weekender, like seven years ago, during which I thought I was choking on the water, we got totally drenched, but the cycle was ace.

    Smoothest Vekoma ever

    The suspended family coaster at Movie Park in Germany is really smooth, not much of a thrill ride at all, clearly, but very very smooth indeed.

    Defunct rides that you missed the most

    Magnum Force at Flamingo Land, what a brilliant, brilliant ride. No doubt the park is in better shape and looks much nicer these days..... But that was one awesome coaster.

    Osama Bin Laden - Found Dead?

    Once Hitler and Goebells had commited suicide in Berlin, the rule of Germany fell into the hands of people far more concerned for the future of the German people, than Hitler, who by this point had lost most of his sense and firm grasp on reality - the collapse of Nazi Germany had already begun...

    LD Relationships.

    I live in Huddersfield and my girlfriend lives in Aberdeen, a 380 mile drive (roughly six hours on average), and we do OK, I was working up there when I met her so we initially had plenty of time together, but I'm now back home and we see each other once a fortnight for as long a weekend as we...

    Should SOB Kings Island stay?

    I think it should stay, it's an icon of a ride, large and imposing, but those three row trains didn't help at all - and as Dave Morton said, a bit of TLC wouldn't hurt, infact, with those changes (infact, does it even still run those trains?), I think it'd be a pretty good ride.
