    Haha, enthusiasts will love that one - Goliath at WH might even be half-decent ;)

    Favorite Drop Tower

    Just remembered Giant Drop at Dreamworld exists - that's quite special as well :) If we're talking best view, honourable mention to Sky Screamer at Marineland in Canada, which overlooks Niagara Falls and the infamously bizarre Dragon Mountain coaster.

    Favorite Drop Tower

    Probably Scream at Heide Park. Surprised I seem to be the first to mention it :)

    First park you’ll be going to

    Heard a murmuring of Fantasy Island opening first - but probably just a slow news day at the Nottinghamshire post. I got a notification about it, for some reason...

    Your favourite (and most hated) Theme Park Hotels/Accomodation

    I like Chessington's hotel when I stayed there - but admittedly that was in 2010 when it was still a Holiday Inn. The showers were good, the food was great and there were giraffe views (and a fish tank) but, like most of Chessington, I'm prepared to believe it's gone very much downhill. Bar St...

    M&D's Theme Park goes into Administration

    In all seriousness, I'll be upset if this is the end of Tornado. It's a massive guilty pleasure and sure, it can be downright vicious, but it's also insanely intense to the point that I prefer it to a number of the UK's more common models.

    POSTPONED - Name TBD | KENTUCKY KINGDOM, HOLIDAY WORLD, KINGS ISLAND | 30th - 31st May 2020

    Booo, but as said before, this was an inevitability - TBH I wish they'd actually cancel my flights so I can start thinking of a Plan B. September's looking like my best choice as it'd just be hellish trying to do a big cred run in high season.

    POSTPONED - Name TBD | KENTUCKY KINGDOM, HOLIDAY WORLD, KINGS ISLAND | 30th - 31st May 2020

    Still no word from Delta or edreams, but let's face it, it's just a matter of time... Almost more worried about how bored I'll be when my work contract ends on May 29 :(

    POSTPONED - Name TBD | KENTUCKY KINGDOM, HOLIDAY WORLD, KINGS ISLAND | 30th - 31st May 2020

    Hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst. As Dave says, everything's very up in the air and I won't know anything for certain until my flight gets cancelled or Cedar Fair delay their opening dates further :(

    My boss is saying the same thing. So now, not only do I want theme parks to shut, but I DON'T want the office to shut!! Situation upgraded from concern to terror...

    Coronavirus: Economic impact on theme parks in 2020.

    It's a shame Blackpool have picked this season to shut Valhalla; a ride on that must be equivalent to a very liberal dose of hand sanitiser ;)
