    ACE have just released a new documentary thingy that might be interesting (I've not watched it yet though myself) ; The Legacy of Arrow Development

    Its online on their youtube site, I'd suggest that its "impolite" of me to just embed the whole thing here, so pop over there if you fancy...

    That was a really good documentary, I did see it floating around Twitter/Instagram the other day between Screamscape and another account. But as the poster above said the Vekoma/B&M/Intamin spite was quite obvious in places, probably just a USA v Europe situation. But Arrow definitely left a huge legacy after it merged into S&S.

    I watched half of it - I thought it was dull but with good info. But yeah, boring presentation? Still very well researched etc. and worth watching.

    I'm not really sure where to post this, but I've just finished watching season 2 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and they go to Universal Studios in the last episode!

    hahahaha They have a plot about us, what they call "coasterheads", and the portrait is so funny and somehow pretty accurate.

    Well the show is hilarious and one of the characters even knew that Rip Ride Rockit is a "X-car" coaster. loved it.

    In this episode of BBC's imaginatively-titled The Travel Show they talk about VR on roller-coasters.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0 ... pisode-123

    Naturally, to demonstrate this they go to Thorpe Park! (And to be fair, Alton gets a mention after a lengthy plug for Derren Brown's Ghost Train).

    ^ Nice one, Serena!

    You compose yourself very well in front of camera. I'd be a sorry state.

    2:07 - 2:28 Maybe Merlin can finally take the hint lol.

    Great interview Serena! I loved the way you described a roller coaster as 3D art that you can experience. I also second the composure statement in full :p .

    That's a very specific compliment from Serena

    If I was to epitomise a speed machine I'm not sure my first choice would have been Mammut!
    I can't wait to make gifs ;)

    Aha brilliant. Some odd choices for certain topics(i.e. Mammut for speed, Big Dipper for drops, etc.), but it's definitely one of the better roller coaster TV shows I've seen. Hoping for some more episodes!
