    New roller coaster and children’s rides for Chessington

    I just hope they go for something sensible (I know, this is Merlin we're talking about), something with a good capacity and unique to the UK. Seeing they also plan a couple of kids rides either means the whole area will be designed with small kids in mind or they'll be there to offset the...

    Ha, definitely glad to have a year off! Crazy we've been doing them so long now.

    Epcot | Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind | Vekoma Omnicoaster | 2022

    I like how curvy it looks, I just hope it's full of cool lighting and effects.

    That would be disappointing, I love Ramses.

    Futuroscope announces €304m expansion plan

    Futuroscope has always kept their attractions fresh and invested in lots of new things over the years so I think what we're seeing in these plans will mostly go ahead. Both of those hotels look great, it'll be nice to have some quality themed hotels under the parks branding alongside the partner...

    Tokyo Disney mid-term plan for up to 2017

    I'm desperately trying to avoid spoilers too but what I have seen so far looks fantastic. I've been seeing rumours that the Tokyo Frozen ride will have an entirely new story to differentiate it from the EPCOT/WDS/HKDL ones. I think this makes it one of the more interesting dark rides coming up.

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    Some artwork was shared on Twitter yesterday that showed that maybe at one point the story included more than the raptors. Also in regards to glass it's set in a movie World where this insane T-Rex enclosure with a tree viewing spot is a thing:

    Universal IoA | Jurassic World VelociCoaster | Intamin Blitz | 2021

    I think we might be seeing quite a lot added to this steel structure. Considering some of the steel bars you can see from the main path have the cast signatures on, I image they'll be covered up. Totally going to have a window looking into it though like a zoo enclosure. Will be interesting to...

    Phantasialand | F. L. Y. | Vekoma Launched Flying Coaster | 2020

    Exciting to see so much movement happening, feels like we're getting closer to it opening for sure. What if it's just a soft opening this year but the park pushes an official opening next year?

    Movie Park Germany | Unknown | Intamin Multi Dimension Coaster | 2021

    This is exciting, really interesting to see how Movie Park pull off this type of attraction. They've been doing some great things recently and this sounds like it'll be a great addition to their line up.

    TEA 2019 report is out

    Always love going through the attendance report that TEA/AECOM put out every year. Link to report I noticed a few errors this year. There's a picture on pages 24/25 which caption it as being Cedar Point when it's Kings Island. Also saw Efteling mentioned as being in Belgium, big whoops. It...

    Phantasialand expansion to start in 2014

    I suppose it's nice that the talks aren't dead yet but like @CSLKennyNI I'm not optimistic about this going ahead. Still, fingers crossed.

    Ravensburger Spieleland to add SBF Hamster Wheel coaster for 2021

    Wow, TIL that the board game and puzzle company Ravensburger have their own theme park. Could be quite an interesting place to pop into if ever in the area, not sure I really want to give the hamster wheel coaster a go, looks quite nauseating.

    Futuroscope announces €304m expansion plan

    I felt like this all got announced the other year but maybe it was a proposal and now it's officially going ahead. (just read the article, announced last year, glad I wasn't going mad) One of the things I love about Futuroscope is the really interesting architecture, actually feels futuristic...

    Disney retheming Splash Mountain at WDW & Disneyland to The Princess & The Frog

    This is how I feel, the announcement felt a bit rushed out while the topic was still relevant. This isn't a bad thing but it does mean it'll probably be a few years before maybe even work starts on the retheme. I saw a few people question Tokyo plans, I read that apparently they've "taken a...
