    Notable Losses Since 2001

    Do original versions of coasters count for this thread, such as the RMC Iron Horses? I mean there's no denying that Mean Streak was awful and Steel Vengeance is the best coaster in the world ;) And that Robin Hood has definitely been improved by becoming Untamed. But are there any prior...

    Thorpe Park 2024 - new coaster?

    And Raging Bull is one of my least liked hypers but each to their own... Someone mentioned the opportunity that is in front of Merlin at this point. There is the opportunity to build something incredible here, something not seen since 1994, something both massive and world class. If they...

    Thorpe Park 2024 - new coaster?

    A smaller Fury would be pretty incredible and plausible based on what I've read from Nicky. That or a Steel Vengeance clone or I riot.

    Parks you've done that were difficult to get to

    Drievliet was a massive pain, Jordan nailed the description. Oakwood takes forever and is a pretty horrific drive in the rain. Knoebels. Just takes a long time to get there from either Hershey or Dorney. The drive itself wasn't awful but just took much longer than I expected. Love the park...

    Rank the Alton Towers coasters

    That was intentional my friend. Although Rita might make it back in there when I ride it again, couldn't justify a half hour queue for it the other weekend when everything else was walk on.

    Rank the Alton Towers coasters

    Went at the weekend as did the half marathon and it was super quiet, multiple re-rides on the stuff we wanted to. Nemesis was running incredibly, we got an Oblivion train to ourselves, Wickerman is a new coaster, absolutely brilliant ride. Smiler was closed, the way I like it. After that day...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I disagree, generally there is something decent in a park over here. Generally 😂 Or at least there's somewhere within a short drive if not. The best thing I have found so far at EL was a chicken burger place which was also a bit ****. And it's in the middle of nowhere so not even a local pub...

    Brilliant in concept, disappointing in execution?

    Baco - Nailed it, horrendous ride in the back row. Hyperion's is nowhere near as bad, the rattle/shuffle is annoying and off putting but not awful at all, doesn't stop me re-riding it. I thought it was just 1 bad train, the other one that was running didn't have the same issue. Has anyone...

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I'm yet to find a decent food option at the park, but I didn't look for anything in the Dragon Zone, which may be better. Agree with the rest though, the vast number of 1 and done's really drags the overall feel down a bit. But... Put Zadra, Hyperion, Abyssus, Formula and the Dragon coaster in...

    Hyde Park Winter Wonderland returning for 2021

    Edit - It might be that one actually the link mentions a booster lift. This fits the theme and is travelling -

    Hyde Park Winter Wonderland returning for 2021

    Here it is; The Heidi Coaster seems to be another spinning mouse from the German fair circuit. Not seen before in the UK. All the other coasters seem to be the same from 2019, we will see when they arrive.

    Your Wacky Worm Count.

    I'm up to 29 out of 514 creds. Wouldn't say that's too bad, 5.6% is nowt. If it gets up to 10% then I'll admit there is a problem.
