    Nitefly has a bad battered sausage at Chessington (and more!)

    Great report. Always amusing to hear other peoples internal monologue as they drift through a park. Do you know if they were allowing single riders onto Dragons Fury? Not the queue itself but if the/any distancing allows it. Spinball Whizzer was not last year which was manageable, but Fury...

    WTF Merlin?

    Consoling pizza has its moments. I too was excited to revisit Thorpe (once inside stuff opens) from the prior inspiring report but not so much now.

    New roller coaster and children’s rides for Chessington

    My young, inexperienced and rose tinted memory thinks the rocks around the mine train were the best and made it so cool. It was a travesty they got removed. I even think highly of the hedges that used to be around the Flying Fish. I hate to break it to me, and you, but they were a hollow façade...

    LWV confirm removal of several rides

    The 'new for 2021 sign' is drawn as big as one of the lost claws or gondolas.

    Energylandia | Abyssus | Vekoma Shockwave+ | 2021

    I like it 🤷 They are trying, usually something to be encouraged. It's not like they are skimping on other important areas to add this in. Such as lots of appealing rides that are good in a very short timeframe.

    Happy Valley Nanjing | Nanjing China | Theme Park

    It's as fast as a rotating restaurant. With contactless tech they could put a vending machine up there.

    Gröna Lund | Monster | B&M Invert | 2021

    Is this a new trick / how have I not seen or thought of that before on an invert? Looks incredible. Other parks should follow suit immediately.

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    A release of info is underway including: Bucking the trend of tall coasters (We already know about the height restriction but I guess the UK is full to the brim with those already). One of the fastest coasters in Europe - 70mph+. This is the multi launch that has over 1km of track. I should...

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    This generic rip-off 'sounds' better than the official licensed versions. I'm fine with a lack of IP, but usually that means they have an original concept.

    New rides @ small parks

    One ride, yes I expect so. If I was in the area and done more important activities first. Given its a unique ride (no matter how lack luster) and most fairs I come across have nothing at all of note this would be a welcome change.

    Big One Re-Tracking @Pleasure Beach

    I better buy a speedy pass then, help them out with that flop. Given I only visit once in a blue moon it turns a reasonable day into a better one for the fraction of my costly train ticket.

    New rides @ small parks

    Can't be worse than kiddy creds that keep taking laps for an eternity. I'm game.

    What’s ACE’s “Reputation” in the Coaster Community?

    I would say don't worry, even knowing its inevitable when going into the unknown. So here are some thoughts. Organisers can be very different to those who attend and any trip is a lucky dip situation. Just like in real life people are different and you will get on better with some than others...

    Energylandia's Future Additions

    If they are going to expand at this beloved rate then why even build a hotel? Just keep the park open 24 hours a day and set up lazy boy pods in each area to get a quick power nap anytime you start lagging.

    WTF Merlin?

    If they start charging for the bogs then we know the future is so bleak we may as well just give up and restart.

    Big One Re-Tracking @Pleasure Beach

    Most people see the Morgan Hypers as an upscaled mine train as they ride very similar. Its bizarre the same conclusion is just falling into place for Arrow. Likely down to the iconic or infamous sections that came at the same time as increased height. See this thread, the third row hill yadda on...

    Craving an Average Park

    I can understand wanting to appreciate the basics and get a little variety going, with or without a large gap year. However just having a nice day out would hit the spot more than usual right now.
