    Untamed (The Wild Ride) - July 2019

    ROAR! As many of you probably know, I recently returned from the Netherlands where my first proper coaster trip of 2019 took place. For obvious reasons, this had been on the cards for a fair while. Additionally – apologies if this isn’t up to my usual standard of writing. Much of it was...

    Release The Krakow - Poland Trip Reports

    It's taken me over 9 hours to get from River Park to home and I have very little energy (LANDIA!) and I'm looking forward to an early night, but I wanted to kick things off and say some thank yous before I forgot. First, obviously to Dr Dave to ferrying me and Sue around all weekend and happily...

    World Cup Topic 2018

    Since we're probably going to end up with one of these at some point, no time like the present. Post your predictions, post-match analysis, complaints about the terrible TV pundits and excuses when England fail to make it past the last-16 here :)

    Will's Adventures on the M5

    Just a quick one from me today as I’ve not done a long drive in a while and it’s finished me off! So, as I’m finally starting a new job next Monday, I wanted to do something fun but comparatively inexpensive and the usual check of coaster-count showed that a couple of new creds which had somehow...

    Best non-Nemesis UK Coaster

    OK, so this is the gooniest most noobish thread I've made in a long time, but seeing a debate in one of the other threads made me curious. I've taken out Nemesis for obvious reasons, so my question is - what's your favourite non-Nemesis UK coaster. Feel free to post a top 5 or top 10 and let...

    Your Time Will [not] Come - 18 March 2018

    This town, is coming like a ghost town… All the creds are being closed down. People getting angry… So, along with the rest of the UK enthusiast community, I’ve had this weekend marked on my calendar for several weeks and have been significantly unimpressed with the way it’s turned out...

    If You Could Turn Back Time...

    This is a game I was playing when I couldn't sleep last night - basically, assuming travel in time was no object, which parks would you visit and in which seasons? There's a risk of this turning into the Park of the Dead topic again, but we shall see. I don't actually know a lot about how...

    Rollercoasters, Rain and Roaring

    So, time for a bit of a write up of this week’s trip to the Netherlands – the first time I’ve been out that way since 2011. This will be slightly different from a normal report, as creds weren’t the sole reason for the trip; a couple of years back, I happened to be in Canada at the same time as...

    Your Most Ridden Manufacturers... and other goony stats

    There's a lot of 'how many xxx have you ridden?' topics doing the rounds lately, so, whilst amending my goon spreadsheet, I thought I'd set the ball rolling on another one. The current winner is Vekoma, who are responsible for 14.7% of my count. This is also a good way of analysing how many of...

    The First Man - April 2017

    Having been back from Vienna for 24hrs after a long journey home yesterday, time to put some thoughts together and hopefully give a bit more help to those of you visiting the Prater this weekend. For those of you that don’t know, Friday was a somewhat stressful affair due to unforeseen...

    Phantasialand Wintertraum

    I've just noticed Pink Panther has beaten me to this. Oh well - have another Phantasialand review, and the first Will style trip report in... a long time. For various reasons, 2016 has not been a great year for either travel or new creds (just TWO new foreign creds prior to this trip!!!) and...

    London Christmas Meet 2016

    Seems like I'm one of the first back and many of the others are probably nursing hangovers, so I'll do the honours. Firstly, as always - thanks to John for the organisation, presents and stuff - I admit that I was in two minds as to whether coming along was a good idea, but in the end, the day...

    Watches - Which Arm?

    Seems a while since I've done one of these, but basically, I need you to all settle a debate I was having with someone at work today. In short, she thinks I'm broken because I wear my watch on my left wrist, I think she's backward, because she wears hers on the right. I'm pretty sure we're both...

    Mickey De Gaul (France - May 2012)

    And so, the Live that was not to be finally reaches its end, and because I'm lazy and have today off work, I seem to be one of the first people to get on here, and might as well try to do a bit of writing before the memories fade away entirely. I've even taken a handful of pictures for the first...
