    Yessss Apocalypse. I’ve given up getting WCR in November but I’d have been pissed if it meant Apoc was shut as well.

    Sweden (and a little bit of Norway) – August 2019 {Day 4: Liseberg}

    The EIGHT MINUTE DISPATCHES on the kiddie! EIGHT. MINUTES. A dispatch took. eight. minutes. That was the peak issue for that park. Honestly it was worse than China. My favourite part of the day was that girl faceplanting during the midday running of the bulls. That’ll teach her.

    Unknown | Flamingo Land | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster (possible Hopi Hari relocation)

    Two weeks shipping from Malaysia would be like, record time, it’s about a month. But I very much doubt they even intend to open this before the Summer, Flamingo don’t do early openings for new rides

    Liseberg Future Additions

    Yeah I wish they’d build an Intamin! Maybe even a Woodie? Could call it Balder!

    Liseberg Future Additions

    The hotel and water park are happening, but don’t hold your breath for a hyper. The park told us this weekend they’ve got no plans for a coaster for at least five years, and that plot of land is right next to some houses so realistically can’t have anything loud (this is why Balder has the...

    Yh thanks we all read the post three above yours. Not the best year, but SFGADv’s looks amazing and I still respect the mentality of everyone gets something.

    We need to talk about Drayton...

    Because money is required to buy things. As a business you put the money in the things that stand to make you the best return. For Drayton, that's not thrills. Thomas Land... isn't its own theme park? So I'm not sure why it needs to be able to stand on its own? It fits in as part of the...

    We need to talk about Drayton...

    I do love how people are like ‘you can’t survive being a younger family park who’s gonna go!’ - when one of the most financially successful parks in the country is... Legoland? It making good business sense and being whet YOU want is two different things, and there’s obviously plenty of people...

    Kinda related - is this construction why Apocalypse is closed at the moment? I’ll be pissed if I go in November and this still isn’t done and that’s shut because of it too ha.

    What if Star Wars Land fails?

    I honestly don’t get the surprise? Disney we’re actively campaigning for people NOT to go, and then people don’t go and everyone’s like omg it’s a failure! There was a 3% drop in visitors - ok that sounds bad, but there was a 10% increase in spend per head (read the article a few days so may be...

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster

    Oh yeah I do forget how when Oz’Iris was built everyone compared it to Batman...

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster

    OK, so why not compare it to one of the tonnes of other rides that have been built like that since Maverick? Why not compare it to the actually comparable ride, Soaring With Dragon. The Maverick comparison is stupid and comes from a need to link everything back to Cedar Point even when it’s...

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg | Pantheon | Intamin LSM Coaster

    Soaring with Dragon has an absolutely ****ing gigantic dive loop mate dunno how much more ‘proper’ you want it. Also I’ll slap the next person that says it’s like Maverick because it has launches and a 95 degree drop. It’s nothing like Maverick in any way, totally different style of ride.

    Has a Scare Attraction Ever Been Too Much?

    Going through them alone can be vile - I remember I went through on at Djurs a few years ago by myself and it was pitch black and just absolutely terrifying. Great though. They’ve definitely gone too far at times - but I’m thinking more of the ‘extreme’ stuff rather than actual mazes. I’m...
