    Coasters that were built too early?

    I'm going to go with the S&S 4D coasters. And I'm going to go out on a limb and say I don't think we've seen a manufacturer yet really perfect this coaster type either. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy X and Dinoconda (Eej I will take a hard pass on, too brutal) but even they aren't exactly the most...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    To this day the most terrifying coaster I've been on. Very pleased they were able to relocate and give these unique coasters a new lease of life but I would be VERY surprised if some of the...uh...larger coaster fans will be allowed to ride Blue Flash. I physically can't see it being able to...

    what do you want your first cred back to be

    I'd love it to be something at Towers (Nemesis or Oblivion please <3) Will most likely be something at Thorpe - if I had my choice it would be Stealth.

    Your favourite (and most hated) Theme Park Hotels/Accomodation

    Stayed in a handful so thought I'd make a list and give a quick one liner of my opinions on each of them: Thorpe Shark Hotel - It serves a purpose Alton Towers Hotel - Adore ATH, from the theming to the bar and general little touches of magic. Still feels very old school Towers. Splash...

    Gröna Lund | Unknown | B&M Invert

    Personally I don't think them because of one major factor - boobs. They're incredibly uncomfortable to anybody who has even a hint of tit. Plus I will usually wear my hair down 9 times out of 10 at a park and those horrific vest restraints catch my hair every damn time. Please the ones that...

    Huge New Expansion For Ocean Park Hong Kong

    I did wonder how Ocean Park would fare out of all of this - between the virus and the riots it's obviously not good news for the HK attractions but the likes of HKDL obviously have the support of Disney to bail them out. @gavin - any idea on the local attitude towards the park? Is it liked as a...

    Correct way to pronounce "Candymonium"

    I say Candy-monium but with a soft 'di' instead of a more elongated 'dee' as you would say the word candy without the monium. It flows better off of my tongue.

    Coasters that you want to like, but don't

    Icon for me. People genuinely seem to love it and honestly I'm jealous of them having a coaster they adore riding that much right here in the UK.

    Untamed (The Wild Ride) - July 2019

    Noooo you missed the weird shooty dark ride at Hellendoorn! And yes that park is ridiculously small, definitely one I'd reserve only for Halloween as they have a fantastic event (weirdly intense and 18+ considering the park is very much a family kind of place.)

    Beijing PTR - Part 2: Cred Whoring

    Glad you had a fun day at the park - it was my favourite Happy Valley by a long way. The show looks absolutely mental - the peacock hats! Only in China haha. Does the station for the S&S still smell like garlic bread?
