    Is Social Media changing enthusiasts?

    Or is it just the way of the world today? Am I the only one that's sick of seeing people constantly trying to promote their dead end Facebook page? And constantly shoving YouTube vidoes in your face? Trying to get famous? It feels like the days of just going to a theme park for a day out on...

    Basically, I really do not get the hype that surrounds Blue Fire. At all. I know people don't exactly rate it as the world's best, but all I had heard was very, very good things about it. Yet I came off completely underwhelmed at what was possibly the worst "big" coaster I've been on. Incredibly...

    Fantasy Island (UK) Updates - GForce returns p5

    Thought I might as well have a topic for the UK'S Marmite park. Weirdly, since the park entered administration last year, things have been looking up, with them investing more money last winter than they have for the previous 10 years combined. That included refurbished and new paint for the...
