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

    There are a few videogame references in these PR dumps; "press start at 9.30am", the loading graphic and "players wanted" on the first ride opportunity. They say "Escaped from the cinema and way beyond a board game", could this be themed to a videogame version of Jumanji? Maybe a mobile app that...

    Ferrari World Abu Dhabi | Mission Ferrari | Dynamic Attractions | 2023

    Gently! We don't know if that pin is structural after all this time

    Alton Towers' Next Big Thing?

    Making the building less of a box would go a long way towards pleasing some of the objectors, some rounded edges, crenellations, etc. Just stuff to make it look more like it belongs there

    Ferrari World Abu Dhabi | Mission Ferrari | Dynamic Attractions | 2023

    How different is the tech between these and Escape from Gringott's? That seems to do everything that was promised with Mission Ferrari and not have significant downtime.

    Ferrari World Abu Dhabi | Mission Ferrari | Dynamic Attractions | 2023

    Are we sure there's actually more track in the building and they haven't just been pushing the car out the one opening and winching it back up each time?

    In your view, what is wrong with British public transport and what would you do to solve the problems?

    A train from York to Stansted cost the same as flying from Leeds to Dublin, then Dublin to Stansted!

    Valhalla at Blackpool Pleasure Beach to be refurbished for 2023

    Yeah, but not this Brexit! The other Brexit! You know, the one with the millions of pounds for nurses and the sovereignty and stuff. I can see people feeding Mands what she wants to hear, rather than the actual truth.

    Thorpe Park | Derren Brown's Ghost Train | VR Attraction

    The perfect chance to give it the branding it's always needed: Derek Acorah!

    Legoland Deutschland | Maximus: Flight of the Guardian| B&M Wing Coaster | 2023

    It took a lot of concentration to see the sky lion and not a massive clown! The only rational explanation I can think of for these being built, is that Merlin are looking at trapping the tweens market at legoland as well as the younger kids?

    Thorpe Park | Project Exodus | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    I thought it was because nobody wanted to fork out for the water treatment stuff needed by the EU on new water rides? If so, maybe we'll get a new one after next December if they go through with scrapping EU regulations

    Alton Towers | Nemesis | B&M Retrack | 2024

    Shouldn't it be moved to ride deconstruction first?

    Silk Road Paradise | Xi'an China | Theme Park

    Just noticed the flyer is using the vekoma method of going up the lift on your back and getting flipped on your front after! Something I've noticed about these manufacturers, is that they don't have the same creativity with their supporting as the bigger firms. I don't know if it's because of...

    Serious incident at Silver Dollar City

    The park railway derailed, seems to be minor injuries but potentially >100 people on board (no visible injuries or screaming in the video) EDIT: Well, I say derailed but it looks like the wheels stayed put and the carriages just fell off the bogies?

    Rishi Sunak or Liz Truss; who do you want to be Britain’s next prime minister?

    The only good thing Thatcher did for Britain was speeding up punk's mainstream appeal. The sooner an election is called the better; we need a government with an actual mandate after all this to'ing and fro'ing. And ideally on the side of the people at the bottom of the ladder. Every...

    Universal's Epic Universe | Orlando USA | Theme Park

    It's ok to separate the art from the artist, but there are people that won't want to give the artist any money at all. I assume Rowling gets royalties from merch, and got a lump sum when the deal was done. On the other hand, you could still visit the parks and not buy anything potter related to...

    SeaWorld San Antonio | Catapult Falls | Launched Flume Ride | 2023

    The mods don't have much power as it is Matt, don't take this morsel of authority away from them too! /s RCDB does list Atlantica at EP, so I guess it comes down to how much "track" is involved in the hill after the launch Vs just a trough with upstops

    Accident On Coaster At Royal Melbourne Show.

    There's a video floating round Reddit and I just don't understand how or why they were in the spot they were? The ride's actively running, it's right next to a walkway so you can see where the train is, there had to have been people shouting at them to not go on, and yet they did. Not to...

    More violence at Kennywood

    Yes, but the latest rumour is that they threw the gun over the fence near the ride, then went in via the metal detectors, and finally collected the gun when it was time for whatever stupid bull**** they had planned.

    Alton Towers' Next Big Thing?

    If it's entirely enclosed, will the application have any details of the ride proper or just the dimensions and appearance of the building?
