    Alton Towers Recreation

    I've always been the other way round - doing park (or ride) recreations in RCT or NL has never appealed to me. Perhaps I would get too frustrated in the details. That's an impressive go at Towers, though! It looks easily recognisable and has all the stuff that makes Towers stand out. The...

    Worth noting that @Ian is there today and is tweeting about his day: I'm sure he'll post some thoughts in here in the next day or so.

    Well, it'll give the consultants another few years of fees to be able to claim I suppose, so...

    That looks a bit like the weird pulsing you sometimes get on stabilised footage. I wonder if that, coupled with the gimbal, maybe?

    Big One Re-Tracking @Pleasure Beach

    It's probably more down to the more recent adoption of sprung loaded wheel assemblies, more than location of the wheels inside and out. Combine that with more accurate track manufacturing techniques and I suspect the "wheels-inside vs wheels-outside" debate is a little redundant now.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    I must be out of the loop - what the hell is Mr Funshine? I Googled it and just got more pictures of the emoji. I don't like it. :D

    Craving an Average Park

    I know what you mean. I've got a trip to Skegness lined up and it's genuinely getting me excited. I'd still rather be on Kondaa or Velocicoaster, though. ;)

    I think that looks pretty good! I think those straight sections of bunny hills kook like the best bit, too.

    Rides at Buffalo Bill's Casino closed until further notice

    Have you read through Poke's posts above? There's a few telltale signs which, when you've been doing this for as long as we have, you learn to spot. It's one of those things where we spot one or two red flags, which when you dig a little deeper you're able to piece together.

    New (temporary, hired) flat rides for Alton Towers

    The problem I have, and I can see happening, is that people won't ride this stuff 'cos they'll recognise it's just old funfair tat and at the end of the season the park will say "see, people don't want flat rides". That's not entirely true then, is it? Plus, it's just tacky.

    Most impressive Coaster Designs

    Just 'cos I can never pass up the opportunity to bash them - my personal issue with Boomerang's isn't the roughness, it's the backwards. Those are some intense inversions to take backwards, and there's something about it that completely throws me off. I actually don't mind them forwards, but the...
