    How does cold weather relate to reduced capacity and no spin?

    WTF Merlin?

    If they start charging for the bogs then we know the future is so bleak we may as well just give up and restart.

    Big One Re-Tracking @Pleasure Beach

    Most people see the Morgan Hypers as an upscaled mine train as they ride very similar. Its bizarre the same conclusion is just falling into place for Arrow. Likely down to the iconic or infamous sections that came at the same time as increased height. See this thread, the third row hill yadda on...

    Craving an Average Park

    I can understand wanting to appreciate the basics and get a little variety going, with or without a large gap year. However just having a nice day out would hit the spot more than usual right now.

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I don't think it's outrageous to consider Dragons Fury the best standard spinner of any make in the world. It takes bells, whistles and inversions to out do it. If you want constant raw spinning go on a waltzter and keep the queue shorter.

    Rides at Buffalo Bill's Casino closed until further notice

    Many first heard years ago 🧐 Now the educational value of this thread has peaked, any updates or replies are inherently suspicious. Can this thread be locked? When Bill is ready to formally announce the future we can start a fresh one way or another. For someone who hasn't ridden and clinging...

    New (temporary, hired) flat rides for Alton Towers

    A bonus limited time roller coaster would have made a huge difference to the views here right from the start!

    New (temporary, hired) flat rides for Alton Towers

    I'm not surprised about the branding. But it is noticeable the ad starts by openly telling people that Towers had a massive gap (which they have let grow over the years) and are quick fixing with fairground rides. An overlay would be appreciated to dress them up appropriately per area of the park

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I have only been to Port Adventura with a fast pass wrist band. Watching the queues move at a snails pace as I breeze past makes me realise that the few are having a far superior day to the many. I gather paying extra to skips lines isn't all that popular but if there is any park to do so its...

    Attractions that still scare you?

    Stand up floorless drop towers freak me out a little. You can't brace yourself and the height seams more alarming. I almost worry that I will split in half, slide free of the restraints and plummet where the fall will get me. The groin pressure isn't the issue you might expect as its all...

    Fuji-Q Announces Major New Coaster for 2022!

    Exactly! The parks appeal is being nuts, extreme unusual thrills on one side and fluffy clouds on the other. With a top burger in the middle. The bizzare spectrum gives me a chuckle and I enjoy the rough edges. And did anyone notice that volcano? Quirky to the max so when they go sensible its...

    Fuji-Q Announces Major New Coaster for 2022!

    This looks fun I guess but off the bat I am more excited for the walkway.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    The scaffolding around blue fall is fascinating to me. I'd like to think they built a sky scraper around it but there are taller hospitals. If there was a time lapse in reverse it could be a magic trick. Shame about the loss, the fake out and view was special.

    Fantastic old coaster footage/pics

    That is the best wooden turnaround shaping, no matter how many tracks.
