The natural follow up to the disappointing merch thread.
Some of mine:
The good hefty square based shot glass from thorpe park - sadly disappeared during a move, think it was of Stealth.
A bottle opener from IMG worlds. (UAE parks had decent merch!)
Six flags New England had a great batman...
As the title says - what are your picks for the parks with the worst "rides&quality/entry price" figures?
I'll start with LEGOLAND in Dubai.
ride /attraction line up:
- awful kiddie coaster
- Almost as bad family coaster (albeit with a reasonable dark ride section)
- a rather dull shooty dark...
So - last month I spent just over a week in Dubai - 5 days with the ECC and 3 extra days, and lots of theme park fun was had.
Day 1 - Legoland and Bollywood park
First park of the trip was legoland dubai, we kicked off with an ers on the dragon coaster (ooh!) - even though it was a saturday...
So - on a scale of 1-10, how much of a cre-ho are you?
I'd probably give myself about 6-7.
On the "plus" side -
I do count
I have a number of kiddy creds and +1s in my count
I do of course plan trips for just theme parks
I count alpine coasters and relocations
I have some other dubious creds...
Obviously, DBGT has had a lot of negative reviews, so what would you do to improve the ride?
Personally, I think that the VR idea on this type of ride does have some potential. and I think the experience itself is actually ok until the end of the first vr sequence - when they hurry you out of...
Following on from the boomerang thread, which of the Zamperla "sandwich toaster" flying coasters have you done?
1 - Hero at Flamingoland
2 - Suiperflight - Playland
3 - Trombi - Sarkaniemi
4 - Soarin Eagle - Coney
Is there anyone who doesn't enjoy a delicious chicken dish? But which is your favourite part?
1 - Moist breast:
2 - Drier, crumbly, melt in the mouth breast:
3 - The skin
4 - Thighs
5 - The drumstick
6 - the wing
7 - the bones
8 - seeing them in their natural habitat
Having seen reports from Ben and Taylor, about being turned away from Toshimaen for the ludicrous reason of their tattoos, I was wondering if any other CFers had been denied entry at a theme park, and what was the reason?
Also saw reports on tripadvisor yesterday from NadroJ and NHS Jordan...
Well - I've finally got around to writing my vienna trip report!
Day 1: Schonbrunn palace and see what else happens.
As it was my birthday, I ordered breakfast on the plane.
The flight with Austrian was very nice - Lots of legroom and a tasty schnitzel to boot! Only thing was I paid for a...
never known what the difference is between bad and ugly, and I'm sure we've had a topic like this before, but couldn't find it.
Anyway - an entry for the bad and ugly category is familypark herne.
It's another absolute thriller of a poll! what is your favourite floor covering material, for a living room or bedroom?
1 - Thick pile carpet
2 - thin or medium carpet
3 - Laminates / wood
4 - Tiles
5 - lino / vinyl
6 - Oher (please specify)
following the recent count topics, I thought I'd do "dubious creds"
Here's my list:
(*) = extra dubious!
1 - Hesenhorn
2 - Trapper slider (fort fun)
3 - Jungle bob (kristiansand)
4- Europa park - swiss bob
5 - Avalanche (bpb)
6 - trace du hourra - parc...
So - as a little pre Christmas treat, I thought I'd do you a little name the coaster quiz.
So - I used my insane art and clipart finding skillz to draw the names of 10 coasters (some from RCDB random coaster)
Winner get's to feel smug - I'd be amazed if anyone got number 10!
So - Finally decided to start on this report!
This was a one week trip through the ECC, I added a second week in New York to visit SFGA and hopefully get the spiteful el toro cred.
DAY 1 - Flight out and Great Escape.
Arrived at Heathrow at 5am - and was among the first to check in, I'd booked...
