    Does age increase propensity to grey outs?

    It's natural that your body will deteriorate with age, some quicker than others. Horrible thought. However, it'll be so gradual you probably won't notice until you attempt to do something one day and realise that it's not as easy as previous times. It was in my early 30's that I first noticed a...

    Oakwood Theme Park 26th May 2019

    I’m loving the marmitey options in this report. Personally I love Oakwood. It may be a long, burdenous adventure to get there (even if you live next to the park), but it does have, as Matt N said several times, a certain charm to it. It’s got all the right rides, it’s got history, elements of...

    Beasts in the East | Trip Reports

    Thinking about it, we should’ve done GY as a day - two fab little parks, a seafront, crazy golf, chips in a cone. Must remember that for 2025, or whenever we next return.

    New Chessington Long Term Development Plan

    I do like a good retro topic bump. 2016 this was produced. Have they surfaced the south car park yet? When I used it in October last year (admittedly I haven’t visited this year), it was full of cavernous potholes.

    The Forums Upgrade: Do you prefer the New CoasterFORCE or Old CoasterFORCE?

    Hope Skeggy is fun - I’ll see everybody either tonight in GY or tomorrow at PWH!

    Beasts in the East | FANTASY ISLAND and PLEASUREWOOD HILLS | 8th-9th Jun

    Booked myself into a cheap B&B about 1.5m from the town centre. I should be arriving about 6-7pm on Saturday. PLEASUREWOOD HILLS MEET UP Please(ure) Wood you meet inside the park at the benches across from the entrance, somewhere near where I’ve drawn a sinister looking Red Cross in the image...

    Beasts in the East | FANTASY ISLAND and PLEASUREWOOD HILLS | 8th-9th Jun

    I’m looking at this now. Thinking Great Yarmouth might be, err, great? I’ll see what’s cheap on Booking.com. I’m only doing the Sunday though!

    Can’t guarantee vegan cupcakes I’m afraid.

It also helps me to keep track of who’s going. If you’re not using Tesco vouchers, season passes etc, book your wristband online at least 7...

    Paultons Park | Tornado Springs | New Area 2020

    Paultons will never go “Boom. Thrill!”. A transformation to a thrill park would be very, very, snails-pace gradual that we wouldn’t even see it. They’re quite content with their target market and have successfully carved themselves a big and well respected chunk of the UK theme park pie. Think...

    Swarming Up For The Season | Trip Reports

    Despite the long queue for DBGT, it was actually one of the best queues experiences I’ve had. The “guess the cred stuck to my head” game (I’m sure it probably has a snazzier name) was a brilliant time waster - even if I couldn’t guess Space Mountain! Lol, times two. Also a good chance to chat to...

    Swarming Up For The Season | Trip Reports

    Cheers to everybody who turned up today, was one of the best trips to Thorpe I’ve had in years! Particularly pleased to meet so many new enthusiasts! I hope everybody felt welcome and had a great time, too. Come on then, phones and cameras were out all day, let’s see your photos and hear your...

    Most renames for the same coaster

    So Pleasurewood Hills’ big announcement is the return of Rattlesnake. Or Snake in the Grass. Or Ladybird. All depends which generation you’re from, I guess. For a coaster that has never been relocated (yes, that’s in bold so take note), four names (albeit one used twice) must be a record of...
