    Skegness et al.: Sunburn, sweat and shame!

    It's that time again for another group trip report! This time it was for the rather sunny and hot Lincolnshire! The fab "Sunburn, sweat and shame" name credit goes to Liz! (P.S. I’m having trouble with my login so am posting from mobile so forgive me if it has come out weird. It doesn't seem to...

    Thorpe Park and Paultons Park May 2021

    After weeks of lockdown and faff it was finally time to head out to my first theme parks of the year. Only a +1 was to be had over both days, but honestly after the last year we've had this really didn't matter. I was going to a park with cfers!! Thorpe Park I've been to Thorpe lots of times...

    New (temporary, hired) flat rides for Alton Towers

    Another bit of news I've seen floating around is Alton Towers potentially bringing in some travelling flat rides to boost their offering. Heide Park brought in a travelling ghost train last season so it isn't completely unreasonable. Perhaps this is to compensate for the period when indoor rides...

    Mopping up UK credits- Great Yarmouth, PWH, Oakwood, Brean, West Midlands and more

    Various other combinations of people have been doing some weekend up cred mopping trips so I thought I'd start a thread that people can contribute to! The server keeps giving me errors with the photos so that's why they're smaller than they could be. First up Great Yarmouth! Tubs is fab! So...

    Baga-waerde (Bagatelle, Dennlys and Bellewaerde)

    Once parks started to re-open Fi, Chainedbanana and I decided that rather than join everyone else in heading to Towers or Blackpool we'd make a shorter journey. To France. Yep, that's right, France is closer! So we took the eurotunnel under the sea (covid restrictions mean you can't get out in...

UPDATED INFO: Videos have surfaced online showing that the back car came off the track and then fishtailed along behind the rest of the train, before...

    2 Incidents at Movieland Park in one day

    I was expecting there to be a thread on this already but apparently not so here it is. Apparently in the same day two incidents took place. One of the boats in the speedboat ride (manually driven by "stuntmen") capsized and part of the monorail collapsed. Apparently everyone in the boat was ok...

I know not everyone does these kind of rides but for those who do which are your favourite to chill out on in-between creds? Here are my first...

    Teststrecke for sale?

    Wasn't sure whether this had been reported before but after the Zaturn link in the other thread I noticed this was for sale. Pretty sure it's Teststrecke, just a photo of it as Laser at Dorney as it seems to be a unique model. https://www.amusement-rides.com/en/product/double-loop-schwarzkopf I...

    Fire at Bakken

We had been waiting for the parks to properly open for ages and then finally booked when it suited our rotas only to find that the...

    The Netherlands in April

    Quick one here because I have a bit of a backlog but wanted to put in my thoughts about mine and Daviddoc's holland trip back in April. First day we did Duinrell. I wasn't sure which of the two Amsterdam parks to do but I had read (probably on here) that Duinrell was the nicer of the two. This...
