Love this site! Wanna know why?
Cos that grinning, bespectacled buffoon Sanbrooke was on telly yesterday yamping on about the reopening of Alton Towers - prime time Central News no less - and none of y'all has bothered to even mention it. Maybe none of y'all saw it, but I'd much rather think that some of y'all did see it and simply chose not to give the guy any more free publicity.

Either way, y'all are the best! X

I'm not generally a fan of vlogging and sure, the over-the-top style and endless publicising grates, but I've actually developed a grudging respect for TPW over the last few months. I enjoy theme parks as much as the next goon, but the effort those videos must require as well as maintaining that level of enthusiasm is in some way commendable.

I've also enjoyed having a semi-reliable source for'when are things re-opening' updates and endless footage of much-missed parks - yes, that's how boring I've found lockdown...

Bit of a difference in the 2 'behind-the-scenes' parks shows currently available. Watched Disney+ show The Imagineering Story last night, in which a DisneyWorld animator had a massive board of buttons in order to create an Abraham Lincoln figure that moved and performed like a real person and could deliver an important speech that defined a nation. Then I watched the Channel 5 documentary in which a Legoland animator put some rocks under a plastic frog so riders on the Log Flume didn't get too wet. Ahhh, that old Merlin magic!

Not a ‘coaster’ programme as such, but this still feels like the most relevant thread.

A documentary called ‘Class Action Park’ (clue in the title) premiered on HBO in the US today...

How the hell can I watch it in the UK without VPNs... No sign of it on Atlantic!!!

Aww man, I distinctly remember blue peter or another BBC kids show going to Cedar Point to show off Raptor and Mantis... lost to the eons of time sadly as I can’t find anything from a brief google search :[

Haven’t seen this one on the forum before (sorry if I’m re-posting) just watched a really cool documentary about Phantasialand.

Unfortunately it’s all in German, but it still shows some really cool behind the scenes shots of the rides, shows and shops!

That was well worth a watch for the drone footage alone

I'm looking for an old documentary. maybe from around 1994? I used to have it on VHS when i was a kid. Its was about nemesis and the building of it with john W and i remember there being a click or a bit about the 'Bone shaker' at AT when it was red. The doc also had sections on building the Big one and how they transported the support structure on the British roads etc. anyone know what it was called?
