    Oblivion - Misleading “Drop” Stats?

    While we're picking at things thought I'd be the one to say that it isn't technically a vertical drop either, only 88.5 degrees as B&M had yet to develop their sprung wheels.

    Zip World Tower | Tower Coaster | Wiegand CoasterKart | 2021

    This thing looks slower than a Fuji-Q Highlands dispatch.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    Europa Park have started construction on a new restaurant, my guess is that it will be similar to space 220 at Epcot.

    What is going on with Thorpe park?

    Recycle the same events from this year, close but not remove another flat ride and possibly paint a fence. Fence painting is highly unlikely though.

    Legoland Windsor | LEGO Mythica | Flying Theatre

    Got a chance to get on it today, not my favourite flying theatre but it's not bad. It's got a fun film to go along with it but it doesn't have the same flying feeling that Soarin or Voletarium give you. They've put some thought into the theming and the surrounding area, but the main attraction...

    WTF Merlin?

    Bit of a joke at Legoland today, feels like we're being forced to buy their coke freestyle bottles. Lots of the refreshments kiosks have been gutted to house the machines, and half of the remaining drinks shops are closed. Even trying to use a vending machine to get a bottle of water is...

    Ride that is better at night?

    Im not a massive fan of this coaster in the day, its just a bit meh. But I did really enjoy it in the dark during fright nights, not only is the coaster more fun but the area also looks awesome.

    Theme park soundtracks that get stuck in your head

    Chiapas will always be my favourite theme park soundtrack, especially the part from the backwards disco tunnel. As for the UK it would have to be the theme for Haunted house Monster Party at Legoland.

    Are the seats on Colossus particularly small?

    I have a height related issue with those trains. Due to the lack of leg space I usually struggle to bring the restraints down as they hit my thighs before they lock. Seems to be a common thing with the older Intamin trains as I experienced the same thing on EGF and Goliath.

    Obscure special effects

    The Yeti animatronic from Expedition Everest. Its been at least a decade since it was operational, and unfortunately it looks very unlikely that it'll ever work again.

    Fantasy Island (UK) | Spinning Racer | Maurer Spinning Coaster | 2021

    With this coaster replacing Ice Mountain hopefully it'll make the trip down to Hyde Park Winter Wonderland like its former did. Would make getting the cred a lot easier for us in the south!

    Why do smaller theme parks in the UK seem to struggle more than similarly sized equivalents abroad?

    I don't think the Merlin annual pass has helped the smaller parks in the UK. Why pay for entry to multiple independent parks and attractions when some of the best ones in the country can be accessed for a monthly payment. The UK is also a very small country, it doesn't take long to get to any...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    There's been rumours for a while that some of their larger rides would removed before the 2021 season. With the removal of G force, Pandemonium and Apocalypse I wonder if we'll hear something about Shockwave soon. Without the other thrill attractions to support it the coaster feels very...

    Desktop PC tips for Planet Coaster?

    Looking at some screenshots of your park I'd suggest reducing the amount of trees and rocks you're using. These pieces can quickly add up causing a large FPS decrease. Also if you've let people into your park I'd recommend limiting guest numbers to around 2k.

    World's Loudest Coaster?

    Egg-Spress at Pleasure wood Hills. It sounds like the wheels haven't been replaced since it was installed in 1986.
