    Blackpool Pleasure Beach: Future Predictions

    Valhalla used to have a coherent storyline and achieved this through the order of scenes and the voiceover on lift 1, however it was always partially left to the imagination of the rider (rather than fully narrated/explained) which I liked. The ride has lost its way through broken features...

    Coaster's USA Coaster Trip - June 2019

    We left Kennywood in high spirits and made the three-hour drive to Cedar Point, the most anticipated park of the trip and one that I’ve been waiting to visit for years. Since I started enjoying coasters, Cedar Point has always stood out to me as the ultimate “bucket list” park and one that I...

    Coaster's USA Coaster Trip - June 2019

    We visited more than one park during our trip out to America yes, I separated the trip reports as they are from different parks but happy for them to be merged if needed. (I have just posted a third review from Cedar Point, so again this can be merged if needed)

    Coaster's USA Coaster Trip - June 2019

    After a gruelling 5-hour drive from Six Flags Great Adventure the night before, the third day of our USA trip was spent at Kennywood. The park has appealed to me since seeing Phantom’s Revenge on an “extreme rides” TV program and with the promise of historic rides and coasters, plus an...

    Coaster's USA Coaster Trip - June 2019

    The second day of our USA trip took us to Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey, my first Six Flags park. Having heard a lot about the park over the years I was expecting El Toro and Kingda Ka to be the stand-out rides, but wasn’t expecting too much in terms of overall park presentation and...

    Coney Island Cyclone - 1st June 2019

    Cyclone at Coney Island has been a bucket list ride for me since seeing it on a documentary called “The Ultimate Top 10 Thrill Rides” over 10 years ago. At the time I had recently visited Blackpool for the first time(s) and with the memories of the coasters there fresh in my mind, it seemed so...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Black Buccaneer has been removed from Chessington's website. A shame if it's closed permanently, was the best pirate ship in the UK IMO.

    Energylandia | Zadra | RMC I-Box

    Yeah it happened to me, a park (which I won't name) used my picture, which I had posted online, on the packaging for a piece of merchandise in their shops. In fairness they removed it once I flagged it with them, but still shouldn't happen.

    Imagine having a park steal your image and use it commercially. Now that's annoying...
