    Presumably news outlets running non-stories (in reality, nothing more than adverts) has cut their advertising costs a little as well - and in fairness to Merlin, that's actually a clever move. Though we've now spotted three mistakes in the article which was in obvious need of quality control.

    But what power does an "Attractions Excellence Manager" have? I mean, they can ride X but the only way they can make it any good is to burn it to the ground and dance in the flames.

    I mean, welcome to PR, it’s kind of a whole industry.

    I don’t know who the girl in the article is, must be some washed-up has been no one would ever associate with.

    Can't quite deal with the levels of cringe in that article, all culminating with Stealth being better than Helix.
    Why was Nemesis not allowed to feature?

    I mean, maybe Nemesis isn't that good...?

    Also when the person featured in the article is one of the most prolific members of this site and a key contributing factor in what it is today, maybe, just maybe, you could try not being so rude about it?

    Welcome to writing for tabloids ;D

    Also, Stealth IS better than Helix #sorryboutit

    Edit: they also switched a lot of the order of stuff - I said I didn't care as long as the top two remained locked.

    “Zombie-themed attraction based on hit US TV show at Surrey resort is the best ride Jordan Middleton has been on - and she's ridden 840 rollercoasters in more than 50 cities”

    Does it not make you feel a little bit dead inside for someone to say this about you? :p

    In that case, you might want to update your signature.

    Fair point haha. The fact that I had to log onto here during the interview to find my Top 10 in the first place shows you how much I actually give a :emoji_poop: about it XD

    Oh I do love a good misinterpreted forum post.

    Nothing rude about it at all really. It's a decent achievement, well done.
    The writing style of the article is where the cringe comes from. What a surprise.

    I couldn't care less about Nemesis, just did a quick comparison with the top ten in @nadroJ 's signature and saw Nemesis replaced Stealth appeared, in an article about Thorpe Park, and assumed something else was afoot in that.

    So I don't know man... Sorry for bothering to read the article or showing in interest in how the media puts these things together?
