    Lockdown Park - Horrorville Dark Ride

    100% my first attempt, I’ve played this kind of sim game since Theme Park on the PS1 in the mid 90s though, not that any game that came before offered this kind of level of dark ride creativity. I’ve not played planet coaster for a long, long time now though!!! Currently playing MS Flight Sim...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    This was their prior tweet... So something that rides different every time, likesome of the rides mentioned above, seems plausible...

    Accident on Splash Canyon

    I haven't read the hse report either, I can't find it. I've only read snippets of things today in news articles, as well as the coroners report (which itself is pretty damning, I'll link below) The main thing that has been mentioned in the news articles I've read, but isn't really mentioned in...

    Accident on Splash Canyon

    Oh dear, seems like an accident waiting to happen :/ but I guess they do have to start gaining some independence and self responsibility some time... And it’s not the worst place for that. But it’s very odd given the importance placed on security at schools these days and since 1995 :( with the...

    Accident on Splash Canyon

    Not entirely sure, it was definitely mentioned somewhere originally that teachers were in the boat, but you could be right... I wouldn't leave my own 10-11 year old to walk around a theme park and ride alone though, so not sure how I feel about the thought that teacher's may do this on trips...

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2021

    @AndrewRollercoaster Remember the government have indicated that they are aiming for 'all' legal distancing requirements to be gone by mid June, so perhaps a lot are just biding their time until then... Fingers crossed that is what FL are doing. Opening what they can, within the guidelines...

    Accident on Splash Canyon

    So IF what we think we know IS true... A young girl, breaks the rules and stands up on a ride, despite being in direct care and control of her teachers, sat in the boat with her... An inquest rules the death as accidental and not negligence and yet the park are fined, whilst nothing is said of...

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2021

    This doesn't look good does it :/ However, to give them the benefit of the doubt, they're saying this is just the first phase, and is due to government restrictions. This is plausible, perhaps they just don't want the extra expense of trying to operate the big rides, with extra (expensive)...

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2021

    It's being reported on the FL Crazy Facebook page that the "coming 2021" has been removed from all the marketing. One commenter (appearing as though he's 'in the know') has said that they we're having various problems with last year and that nobody other than zoo staff have been onsite since...

    Energylandia's Future Additions

    Why is there such a long straight on the mine train? That’s one hell of a brake run, unless the picture is deceiving 🤷🏻‍♂️ Also, I know the track isn’t even finished yet, but I do hope there’s a lot more theming to go in or it’s going to look a bit daft between the 2 world class themed areas :/

    LWV confirm removal of several rides

    It does, but I really don't think the investment is going to be on the same level as Thomas Land, regardless of where the money comes from :( I could be, hope I am, wrong however. Thomas Land didn't work for DM, The American Adventure purchased kiddie rides, including a kiddie coaster and a new...

    LWV confirm removal of several rides

    It's definitely the end... We've seen it all before... (as @Peet pointed out) Thrill rides being removed, others SBNO, no investment for years... For this to work there'd need to be some money to invest in the under 10's target audience, some new rides, a themed area, IP etc... That money is...
