    Thorpe Park | Project Exodus | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    Merlin's Bear Grylls Adventure has a base camp theme and looks really good tbf. We know Merlin like to cut and paste certain things so maybe they will go for a similar vibe. Or of course a full on IP: Bear Grylls: The Ride £5 for a bottle of piss in the gift shop.

    What makes your #1 better than your #2?

    1. Steel Vengeance 2. Skyrush I simply refuse to believe Steel Vengeance will ever be topped. Purely because of its length. It goes on forever and there are no dead spots. I find the smaller RMC's are usually a bit more intense/aggressive. Steel Vengeance is absolutely huge but still tries to...

    Alton Towers | Nemesis | B&M Retrack | 2024

    Bit late to the discussion but yes I'd be up for vest restraints too. Really like them on Banshee. They're a lot more spacious around the neck and shoulders.

    Canada Creek Railway themed skips. A nice touch 🥲

    Kent, England | The London Resort | Entertainment Complex

    Agree the site is fine for public transport. 20 minutes on a train from the capital city is not unreasonable. It is however a horrific location for driving. The Dartford crossing already struggles with traffic as it is.

    Alton Towers | Nemesis | B&M Retrack | 2024

    They could retheme it to a full roast chicken dinner. Who needs the red waterfalls back when it could be gravy? All of the foliage could be easily replaced with brocolli. Roast potato rockwork. The station shape is already there for the chicken. Not sure what the track would represent though.

    They better not change the music. Will not accept any variation including an IMA Score bastardisation of the original.

    UK Scare Attractions Reports

    The Howl - Visited a couple of years back and 5 of the 6 mazes haven't changed since then which was disappointing. There was a new American High School themed maze which was the highlight. Watched the condensed Circus of Horrors show, similar to what they used to show at Thorpe Fright Nights in...

    Witchfinder finally gets to the Point – US Trip, Sep/Oct 2022

    Was going to say something similar. A ballsy move. Fair play to you sir. I'd have gone for the 'ignorance is bliss' approach and avoided a test though I think. I'm sure you took care to minimise spreading it when out and about, and anyone worried about getting it will be fully...

    CWOA | Mandrill Mayhem (World of Jumanji) | B&M Wing Coaster | 2023

    Nipped over to Chessington a couple of weeks back and couldn't believe the scale of this project. The who area is absolutely huge, especially considering how compact Chessington is.

    Nice effort that👍 It could work well in this format... Or this... Who Are Ya?

    No but I've just added to the home screen along with Wordle, Quordle, Octordle, Globle, and Worldle. Will report back! Someone should make a Credle 👀

    Got bored of Worlde but still enjoying Quordle. 87 played with an 82% win percentage. It's great, very challenging but not impossible.

    Last Cred Review

    I rode Mine Blower a few months after it had opened and absolutely loved it. Think it may have sneaked into my top ten at the time. Will be giving it a swerve next time.

    Portaventura Being Sold Back to Universal? Rumour!

    The coasters there are so rough/crap I'm not sure Universal would want to be associated with them at the moment. Unless they're planning a major overhaul in a short period of time. Stampida, Khan and Baco all ride like the Blackpool woodies. Still, the best thing about PA is the scenery and...

    Guess the event… (part review part rant!)

    Ohhh that was a great rant. Youre right, no one really mentions it. Me and Mrs Fisted had similar feelings after our first HHN. I do think the HHN hype is real though for the atmosphere, set pieces and costume designs. The Shining one a few years back was absolutely incredible and was like...

    Hossoland | Poland | Theme Park | 2024

    Go on Poland! Sounds like they've got a good team and board and will look to avoid doing what Energylandia did in the early years. Looks a good location for the Polish people with a large catchment area. May be a pain to get to though from elsewhere in Europe.
