    IOA | Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure | Intamin LSM Launch (Dragon Challenge replacement)

    Looks decent apart from those animatronics. Those are really piss-poor.

    Rumoured Coaster - Flamingo Land

    I'm predicting a beautiful, concrete theme.

    Xishuangbanna PTR - Part 1: Sunac World

    I’ve had this place on my radar for ages, but never managed to make it work before now. It’s pretty out of the way, close to the borders with Myanmar and Laos, with no direct flight options from around here. There are plenty of flights from Kunming though, which is a MUCH more major city. I’d...

    Quietest you've ever seen a theme park?

    You'll rarely see reports from busy periods though. Most Western enthusiasts will, obviously, plan their park trips to be outside of holiday periods and avoid weekends where possible, so it gives a semi-false impression that the parks are always dead. Some of them genuinely are, especially if...

    [Live TR] China June 19' - Shanghai, Beijing & more

    That's one of the few faffs I don't mind in China. They do that to make sure everyone has picked up the right bag/nobody has stolen anything. China's pretty safe in that regard anyway, but I like not having to even consider whether I should leave stuff in the station or not.

    Quietest you've ever seen a theme park?

    I went to Wanda/Sunac Xishuangbanna this morning and almost had the place to myself. Solo rides on everything. Very strange considering it's a public holiday. The whole area seems ridiculously quiet.

    What is your favorite Arrow Custom looper, operating or defunct?

    I'll do a list later (maybe), but I always rated Fantasia Special quite highly. It's been well over 10 years since I rode it though; it could well have turned to s**t in that time. Tennessee Tornado was decent, but I don't really get the appeal with Loch Ness Monster. Maybe I need to redo it...

    [Live TR] China June 19' - Shanghai, Beijing & more

    Just a hint regarding your train tickets: you can collect them ALL from the first station you use. This will save you time queuing every single time. They might charge you, but the cost is very low and totally worth it for the time saved.

    Accident at Lightwater Valley

    Ooooohhhh, they could almost fit an RMC Raptor in that space! What. The. Actual. F**k. Is. Wrong. With. Some. People?

    Guiyang and Anshun: Part 2 - Probably Not Worth Clicking

    There’s a bit more to this weekend, though nothing massively exciting. The next day was looking wet and miserable. View from the hotel: I took the massive hotel umbrella with me, but it stopped raining immediately and I was stuck carrying the f**king thing all day. Ugh. I walked down to a...
