    Disney retheming Splash Mountain at WDW & Disneyland to The Princess & The Frog

    I may be very much in the minority here it seems but I quite Tiana’s Bayou Adventure as a name, that's what it will be themed around, a trip down the Bayou. To me Frog Flume sounds cheap and nasty like something at your local fairground. It's certainly less of a mouthful than some of Disney's...

    Most and least successful implementations of queue jumping systems (e.g. FastPass)?

    Universal Express was very hit and miss in my experience, as an Express user I found some of the waits far longer than I would expect given that I'd paid to stay in a hotel for said privilege. An example of this would be fact that on Dudley do Right's Ripsaw Falls we waited over 45 minutes even...

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    A wild mouse on Liverpool Pier Head was £6 a go last Christmas, I'd rather do the Babylon coaster. Point is everything is expensive.

    Your Least Common Opinion?

    Whilst I thought Iron Gwazi and Velocicoaster were fantastic coasters I prefered Hargrids to everything I've ridden.

    Rides you rode in the opening season?

    Adding Iron Gwazi and Ice Breaker for 2022 to this list (I liked them both a lot but does it make me a bad person that i preferred Hagrids to anything else I've ridden??)

    Rides you rode in the opening season?

    2022 - Iron Gwazi, immense, totally different from Guardians (obviously), new number 1!
  11. Munchy Road Hippopotamus

    Rides you rode in the opening season?

    2022 - Guardians of the Galaxy:Cosmic Rewind x2. Brilliant coaster to me and firmly my number one. I'm going to Busch Gardens tomorrow so that is likely to change but for now it reigns supreme.

    Flamingo Land | Sik | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2022

    Isn't this the point though that they are aiming for that market? I'm not a fan of the brand (the clothes certainly aren't aimed at me) but the people who it is aimed at are clearly the sort of customer they're going for. It does mean I'll have to be pretty savvy with when I visit though as...

    Epcot | Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind | Vekoma Omnicoaster | 2022

    I have 2 park reservations in June for Epcot hoping to get on this. I don't even like the park so I hope I get it done on day 1 and wont have to return !

    I think I hate her....

    I don't really as I have never met her but I'm pretty envious. https://news.stv.tv/west-central/airdrie-woman-alexandria-adamson-lands-dream-job-as-theme-park-tester-in-orlando-florida Upon further investigation this is a three week position for Ocean Florida and not quite what I thought...

    Icon Park - Drop Tower Accident 24/03/2022

    It certainly appears that size is the issue rather than an arbitrary weight amount. There are pictures that appear to show the restraint was not pulled down very far. We've all sat in rides and seen people have their restraints forced down for that "click" or had it done to ourself. People...
