    Chessington World Of Adventures | Croc Drop | Zamperla Sky (Drop) Tower

    ABC do some pretty nifty drops, Fabbri do some nice family drop rides too. SBF.... Not so much.

    Chessington World Of Adventures | Croc Drop | Zamperla Sky (Drop) Tower

    The park takes this much time to create real nice theming for them only to deliver some crappy SBF hardware. Brilliant..

    Paultons Park | Tornado Springs | New Area | 2021 are good lads. Small firm up north, but super solid team. I know a couple people up there, so if I get any tidbits, I'll report back if I'm allowed.

    The first UK RMC; where will it happen?

    Billy big balls piping up here.. I think the obvious park would be Thorpe Park, but considering Merlin's just had a buyout, who know if they're even going to keep their parks?

    Chessington World Of Adventures Have Revealed Elmer's Flying Jumbos In 2020

    Oh shut up Merlin... First you want to turn Chessington into a safari branded park, and now you want pop-culture stories? Go away management, you're drunk.

    Tayto Park News/Discussion

    I feel like Tayto Park's new coaster could definitely feature the dreaded 'fell-swoop' inversion. 100%

    Efteling | Symbolica | ETF Rides Trackless Dark Ride

    And to think this thing cost over 35 million quid to build and Derren Brown cost something similar and yet look how big of a flop that was... Just goes to show what you can really do if you have the right team together.

    Accident at Ohio State Fair- 1 dead, 7 injured

    In the UK, ADIPS (being the strictest regulators) require park and fair operators to pass their weld joints through UV detection. A reactive spray is applied on welds or high stress points and the tests are carried out. Similar methods are required by TUV, who govern the rest of Europe.

    Why build a vekoma?

    Technically, Vekoma are one of the most robust and flexible manufacturers of coasters. Who knows what happened with JO It was most likely presented to many manufacturers and most said no and Vekoma just happened to deliver what the park wanted? I personally think it's a case of who could deliver.
