    Poland 2019 - Vekoma overload, SBF Visa disgust and more!

    Having missed out on the CF Live to Poland last year, it was high on my list of places to visit this year and so on May 4th (my birthday) we headed out for a 5 day break that would encompass coasters, culture and more besides. We flew on a new route to Krakow from Doncaster/Sheffield airport...

    First visits to Efteling and Toverland – October 2018

    Mrs Witchfinder (Anna) and I booked a short break in the Netherlands, with a couple of days at theme parks (one coinciding with Ghosterforce) then followed by a couple of days in Amsterdam. I could go into detail about all the hassle we had with our hire car at the airport and how it made us...

    Thorpe Park on a Weekday (and a Sunday)

    A trip report for a park nearly everyone has been to with photos that nearly everyone has taken? Why not! :D Last weekend myself and the wife has a 2-day visit to Thorpe Park. You can get a really decent deal via the Thorpe Breaks website for certain dates, and we got park entry for 2 days plus...

    Wicker Man or Icon? Which is the most significant for the UK?

    Both the UK's big new coasters are up and running now, with reviews generally positive for both. This question isn't about which one is best (it's Icon, obviously :)) but how significant or important they will be for the UK theme park and coaster scene. So what do you think? Will the UK's first...

    Damn that dog! A delayed trip to Florida (March 2018)

    This 9 day trip to Florida was planned for my wife’s 40th birthday (she’s a big Harry Potter fan) and we were supposed to fly out on 21st February. Unfortunately a few days before we were due to depart, our dog was really ill with gastroenteritis and as the date of the trip approached we...

    A quick trip to Oakwood – August 2017

    Whilst on holiday in Pembrokeshire I took the opportunity to make my first visit to Oakwood. I only had enough Tesco vouchers to get one entry ticket (and it wasn’t worth paying £20+ for a second ticket) so this was a solo run whilst my wife and dog waited outside in the car park, so it needed...

    Under (and over) the Weather – US Trip May/June 2017

    Firstly, an apology for the often terrible photos in this trip report. The reasons for them in most cases will become clear, but in some cases there’s no excuse! I did shoot some video at most parks which I’ll get on YouTube at some point. This trip report has a title with dual meaning – there...

    Coasters you'd love to ride but (probably) never will

    Not a topic I've seen before so here goes... Which coaster would you really like to ride but never will, either because it no longer exists or simply because you don't think you'll ever get to the park where it resides? For me it's a Togo UltraTwister Pipeline Coaster. I understand they're...

    Bobbejaanland and Phantasialand (Aug/Sep 2016)

    My wife and I recently spent a week in Belgium, which allowed us to visit a couple of theme parks amongst other activities. Please excuse the mixed quality of photos - a combination of camera phone and 'proper' camera! First up was Bobbejaanland on Monday 29th August. We travelled up from...

    Dinos and Dragons (UK South Coast & Midlands – May 2016)

    My wife and I had a short break in the New Forest over the Bank Holiday weekend, so we took the opportunity to visit a few parks on the South coast that we've never been to before, and also visit West Midland Safari Park on our way home. In total I managed 13 new creds from five different...

    Scotland Trip – Aug/Sep 2015 – Codona’s and M&D’s

    This is my first trip report, covering two Scottish parks that don’t look to have had a lot of coverage on here recently. I’m fully aware these aren’t the greatest parks in the world (or even the UK!) but thought I’d try and give a balanced review of both parks… So these trips were part of a...
