    Have you or someone you know personally suffered injury?

    Pretty much has to be... Or there’s even a very slim chance the OP is actually a CW fanboy hoping to persuade the park to remove FD and replace it with a ground up rmc giga coaster 😂😂😂

    Red Force - Ferrari Land

    Looks great, one thing niggled me instantly though, Ferrari badge needs to be one horizontal bar higher. Sorry, I’m an idiot I know, but it really bugged me straight away 😂😂😂 really does look good though :)

    Have you or someone you know personally suffered injury?

    Yes... I’ve got two bruised ears, a sore neck, pain in my shoulders, and a never ending headache.... ...I’ve never ridden it though, that’s just from looking at the thing. It’s a Vekoma SLC, they’re notoriously rough coasters. However I think you will find ‘most’ people are greatly...

    Chessington World Of Adventures Submits Plans For Drop Tower

    The seller, usedamusement-rides . Com referenced in that advert, has only one top spin listed on their site, and it’s in Netherlands and has been up for sale for a while. Not sure if that means anything at all, but worth noting nevertheless.

    Rank the RMCs

    1) Untamed - Relentless ejector, a feeling I seem to enjoy more than some. It feels like the elements and force just keep coming one after another in rapid succession, not a single dull moment at all. 10/10 2) Zadra -Fast... FAST... FAST... and that drop in the back is heaven. Excellent blend...

    Energylandia's Future Additions

    Thanks for that info. My point still stands though, people act like this is all a bit dodgy and underhand when it’s actually a matter of public knowledge. They’re doing nothing wrong and are not hiding the fact. As an EU tax paying citizen (for now) I personally see this as one of the more...

    Energylandia's Future Additions

    I honestly don’t know how this is still spoken about as if it’s rumour and not public knowledge. Their very own web site explains their subsidies... Around 17.5M Euros... A drop in the ocean compared to what has been invested in the park since...

    What's Your Favourite Madhouse?

    Sorry to be so negative, but none of them... Think they’re boring personally and an absolute waste of time. Hex has a great story, but that’s it, I feel like the experience could have been infinitely better having linked that story with almost any other ride system. I’ve done 4 and will happily...

    Energylandia's Future Additions

    The theming for halloween was park wide in September, and was looking pretty damn good too... Far better than any UK park’s halloween theming.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    The area is an area of natural beauty. Churnet valley has some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK with green forests on rolling hills, and that’s coming from somebody who practically lives in the Peak District national park. I for one would not want to change that for the sake of a...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    We don’t have any gigas on our continent, never mind in our country... You literally already have them in your state... Think We’ve been waiting longer 😂

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    You lot really don’t deserve a giga... Stick it at Thorpe Park instead!!! We’d be grateful 😂

    Energylandia | Zadra | RMC I-Box

    I have a question I forgot to ask last week to you more seasoned RMC riders. Around the inside of the taller parts of Zadras wooden supports are ground to top metal support beams. Not just the lift hill, but the mass of wood at each end too. You cannot really see them from the outside, not...

    Major accident on Quimera at La Feria Chapultepec

    I did notice something from those disgusting images though, as they also showed extreme close ups of the undercarriage. In the UK and EU they put markers on every bolt and nut, to show if anything turns loose even slightly. You’ve all seen those reassuringly intact blobs / lines of... whatever...

    Good Company in Poland 2019

    I am not willing to spend more than a couple hundred on what is essentially my first ‘none kit’ lens, I am the newest of beginners, so I better make sure I stick at this and contnue to enjoy it and learn before spending money on serious kit. Thanks, so something like this would be great...
