    Thorpe Park 2024 - new coaster?

    I'm betting ... (crikey this is hard), £10 on RMC hybrid with 20 pence each way on a B&M hyper just in case. I've just got this nagging feeling there may have been a consideration at the conceptual design phase in not wanting to upstage the height of Stealth, I hope very much (and suspect very...

    Thorpe Park 2024 - new coaster?

    It would mark the first bit of business between RMC and Merlin but wasn't it a first partnership for GCI and Merlin for Wickerman? This could be anything and I can't call it at all. If the bookies were on this, what odds would you put on? B&M Hyper - Evens RMC Ground-up Hybrid - 3/1 Intamin...

    Thorpe Park 2024 - new coaster?

    I believe the young professionals these days call it "manifesting it into reality" At this point I'm down for anything so long as it truly is world-class as they promise, something to be excited about. As much as I loved the Wickerman build-up for AT, it still felt as though we were marching...

    Thorpe Park 2024 - new coaster?

    I'm looking forward to "Boris's Magical Two-Wheeled Bicycle Adventure" through the Old Town forest complete with an upcharged and poorly designed zipline that routinely strands guests halfway to Amity Beach... In all seriousness though and to add to the debate, I'm planting my flag here in...

    That's a bloody shame Nick, where else can I do my Olympic speed-walking training?

    Gigs 'n' Tours

    Saw Foals at Cardiff Castle. Being in a crowd that large was surreal enough but the performance after an 18 month break; even more so.

    And that's a shame, polarised tribalism kills rational debate. Sent from my SM-G998B using Tapatalk

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    I'm (hopefully) going to Orlando in January and having trawled vlogs to amp up the hype; alot of Disney World looks tired, flat and outdated. Some of the restaurants look like they had the budget of a 90s youth club to theme it up. I don't see too much of that chatter out there as I suspect...

    Most capitalist and socialist theme parks

    I have love for Holiday World's socialist unlimited free soda agenda (even if it's likely costed into the admission price...) Sent from my SM-G998B using Tapatalk

    The Maccy D's Thread.

    [emoji102] I apologise to Nick in advance. The thread made me do it. Also, what in the **** is a Katsu Curry McNugget?!

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    Hex is the best dark ride in the UK and one of the most perfectly realised thematic packages in the world, paying to the fact that the story is perfectly grounded in a believable narrative where the reality of the castle and the local story intertwine beautifully. I mean, sure... you can be a...

    There is also the possibility of dyslexia or learning difficulty which I wouldn't be in a rush to look down the nose at. Anyway... About that wall?!

    The TV we watch...

    I've been watching Netflix's High Score, a history of video games. Lo and behold; 7 minutes into episode 4... Super slick off-ride shots in Fuji-Q! Turns out Sonic's level design was directly inspired by rollercoasters. I knew I adored that hedgehog for a reason.
