    As the predicted queue line ever been wrong and it's taken longer than the expected time ?

    Yeah I did hear about parks like Alton Towers using the mobile app and "sensors around the queues" to monitor how long those in the app have been in that area or something, but that's the extent of my knowledge/what I've been told. Obviously not a flawless system though as last month during my...

    Rank the Alton Towers coasters

    Matt I've ridden in the back row many times and there has been no dicklift at all, not even a slither. There are a few moments you feel like you're gonna get some but it never comes :(

    Rank the Alton Towers coasters

    1. Oblivion 8/10 2. Nemesis 8/10 3. Smiler (the layout is genius, but needs lapbars) 7/10 4. Wickerman (needs just a few pops of actual airtime to be noteworthy.) 6/10 5. Rita (rode this again last month and it was actually decent and it ruined my week) 6/10 6. Thirteen 5/10 7. Galactica (makes...

    Most Painful Rollercoasters & Flat rides

    Oh on the subject of the Big One, I rode that too... Can we talk about the first drop on the back row and how it objectively tries to murder you?

    Most Painful Rollercoasters & Flat rides

    I rode on the back row too and it was an ordeal. I have ridden plenty of rough rides (all of Blackpool's are except Icon imo) but Grand National was just not enjoyable for us. Hard to enjoy airtime when you're genuinely concerned for the welfare of your vertebrae </3

    Cheers for that. What a capacity-killing idea though!

    Most Painful Rollercoasters & Flat rides

    Rode Grand National for the first time last month. Honestly it was horrendous. After the first drop I wanted to get off and I've never felt that way on any roller coaster before.

    Gyeongju World | Valkyrie | Gerstlauer Family Boomerang | 2021

    Ok nobody has mentioned it so I assume the answer is obvious but... If it's a boomerang, why the corner at the top making it a full circuit?

    Stealth vs Oblivion; which of the UK’s one-trick coasters do you prefer?

    Stealth's launch is phenomenal but it's just a bit much for me after that. The sheer force of the pull up, coupled with the rattle that feels like you're sat in that one trolley at Morrisons with the broken wheel... It's a tough sell tbh. Oblivion needs a refresh but my god that drop really...

    CWOA | Project Amazon | B&M Wing Coaster (Jumanji Land?)| 2023

    Ugh... I guess at least it's pretty relevant, for now? I'm probably alone in this, but when it comes to parks using IP, I'd rather the entire park is IP based (Universal Studios etc), or none of it. Like how when you go to Europa Park and each area is wonderfully themed to a nation and it all...

    I'm assuming they're gonna slap the spinning car on later?

    Too tall to ride?

    I'm 6 foot 1, so not exactly giant, but I have found that OTSRs like Oblivion's do touch my shoulders constantly now and it's not that comfortable. Gone are the days that OTSRs were just lapbars with annoying bits on top! I've never been refused to ride anything however my friend and I were...

    What is the worst ghost train you’ve ever ridden?

    Haven't ridden myself, but surely this must be the reigning champion of 💩 ghost trains?
