    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster

    Total rumour at this stage and from what I’ve heard it’s expected July which seems ambitious. However some of the smaller rides in the area circled have been relocated already so who knows... Edit: Won’t let me add second pic but anyway, go to google maps and take a look at colossus in Thorpe...

    Bags of Coffee Beans spotted at Starbucks Warehouse

    Let the guessing commence! I reckon although the majority of these bags will be distributed in the United States, if you squint carefully theres a label on one of the bags at the back of the picture marked "To be shipped to Portsmouth". Now obviously Portsmouth is a dock in the UK so they...

    Flamingo Land 4th June

    My other half is a teacher but at a catholic school so they're one of the few schools who get 1 week at Easter, 2 weeks in May. We decided to make the most of the majority of kids being back at school and the other half being off with a visit to Flamingo Land. We used a voucher recently...

    Adventure Island Ban Topless Men

    but the news article shamefully brings up the world record for naked people riding a coaster which was a closed event.... Here, here I say - nothing worse than when we get a bit of heat in the UK all the scrawny little twigs take their tops off for the world to see =D> Source ...

    Another photoless Trip Report from yours truly so here goes; Got to Alton Towers about 11.00am - this was my first trip since my horrendous Scarefest visit last year ( viewtopic.php?f=31&t=36930 ) Using the free tickets I'd blagged from that we got straight in. The park was a little busier...

    Alton Towers Contact Number??

    I sent a complaint to Alton Towers on 22nd October and they promised a response within 10 working days - I haven't received one. Does anyone here know a number other than the general enquiry lines to get through to? I've spoke to the enquiry line and they're not based on site - she said there...

    Alton Towers 19th October 2013

    Brief report, I'm kind of using it for notes to reference to as well for when I write to them. We got into the theme park car park at 10.00am but didn't get into the actual park until 11.00am due to queues for both monorail and actual tickets. We headed straight to the smiler at 11.15am which...

    Snow Closing UK Parks

    Due to the adverse weather the UK is experiencing, Alton Towers and Drayton Manor have both announced they won't be opening today. I know this weather is unusual for this time of year but I guess does bring the argument back about parks opening early in the year I guess? Not ideal for the...

    Flamingo Land | "Hero" | Zamperla Volare

    Seeing as it was recently confirmed on Mushroom's video at the 'Great Days Out' event in Manchester I thought this should warrant its own topic... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXCp2ac_BMY This is supposedly going on the site of the old Wild Mouse which is no longer with Flamingo Land - the...

    What 'Exclusive'/Rare Cred's Do You Have?

    I'm just about to update my CC because I'm feeling goony and whenever I look at my CC I always look at two coasters that I know not many people will have. First one being "New Roller Coaster" at New Metroland (now closed) - I don't think many from outside the North East would have ridden this...

    Frightwater Valley 31/10/2012

    This was my first time at Lightwater Valleys Hallowe'en events and all I can say is WOW WOW WOW how fantastic! I have to admit my expectations weren't really high as I was probably going to compare to Scarefest and Fright Nights ran by multi-million pound corporation Merlin but this really was...

    Following on from Ian's Walibi Holland topic, the next port of call was Toverland! This was a first for me, Darren and Ian while a repeat visit for Rach & Peter. I didn't take many pictures on the day due to foolishly forgetting a travel adapter and not having a full charge on my phone! A...

    Flamingo Land 2nd August 2012

    Again, no pictures so if thats your bag I suggest finding another topic or looking at the CF Park Guide for Flamingo Land :) As many of you know I love this park, I consider it my home park and many consider me a 'fanboy' of the park. Never before have I been so disappointed with a visit to a...
