    All filler - no killer. Well rounded parks with poor headline attractions.

    I'd agree with Europa and Efteling. Both have enjoyable coasters, Europa more so than Efteling, but nothing stand out. They do both have absoloutely loads of good quality, well rounded, attractions in general. And their top tier coasters could improve the lineups of many parks in Europe. But...

    Duel at Alton Towers closing on 6th September - retheme or refurbishment for 2023?

    Nothing special, pretty much what's already been posted... https://view.email.merlinentertainments.com/?qs=d34f02e2cb295e8eeb19252fd502cdf26d2575d7e354ce58c22845b9d0ec2bc15e8812bef64e48205ad09816511792bd29b5d94db6185295bd9f5e54dd671b0419d32df7601f407e6cb13d67e8f27294930d36e96254ba57

    Duel at Alton Towers closing on 6th September - retheme or refurbishment for 2023?

    I’m guessing everybody got the email? ‘The Curse at Alton Manor’ Edit: has it’s own thread, who knew 🤷🏻‍♂️😂

    Facebook has destroyed your pictures for me with their compression... Looks like they're in just 26ppi :( Edit (It's because you posted the mobile link and I'm on a PC)

    Phantasialand | Deep In Africa - Adventure Trail| 2022

    To their credit, Blackpool Pleasure Beach have done an similar job with Watson Road. I often wonder how many people are not aware there's a road beneath their feet... Watson Road even allows for a good amount of natural light!!!

    Alton Towers' Next Big Thing?

    I honestly thought that had closed... I used to like that when it was at BPB tbf.

    Alton Towers' Next Big Thing?

    If it is a coaster, I really really hope it's something like this! It's not just Alton Towers lineup that's missing something like this, it's the entire UK lineup! Off the top of my head, we have Walking Dead and...

    Holy s***... This is actually happening isn't it!!! I think I've still been in that 'something is going to get in the way' mindset!!! Buildings coming down, actual mud, and now Steel on the ground... It really is happening.

    Most Overrated Coasters You've Been On?

    I don't even consider Maverick to be part of the set to be honest... Old style restraints 🤮🤮🤮 (Being tall.) It's got a mountain to climb for me before I've even ridden it. Got me wondering though, how many LSM intamins, with the new style restraints, and excluding clones, (sorry Chinese Taron)...

    Most Overrated Coasters You've Been On?

    To be fair, I loved the queue line :) Got a bit tedious when they refused to open any shortcuts despite being so quiet they were sending empty trains... But that shouldn't take away from the effort. It's a decent queue. :) This year or next :) But we've all got to do a couple of new ones in...

    Most Overrated Coasters You've Been On?

    I first posted in this thread before visiting Florida... Now I've been I'd completely agree with this. Velocicoaster is incredible, sure, but it hasn't even made my top 5, and I haven't ridden many coasters. It just doesn't flow as well as I'd expected it to. Also, nice to see I'm not alone on...

    Alton Towers' Next Big Thing?

    He openly confirmed that Duel is going back to it's roots. :) BTW, I've kept this quiet (apart from sending a message to Matt on the day) But I don't mind saying now since he's pretty much said similar himself publically. John confirmed to me himself, on Nemesis closing weekend, that project...

    Alton Towers' Next Big Thing?

    BTW has this been posted anywhere??? The information is 3 weeks old, but it missed me, and so I guess may have missed others too? They've now replaced the decking that they removed in the sub terra queue line with new boards, as well as some other bits and bobs, I know we pretty much know it...

    Alton Towers' Next Big Thing?

    Who knows? They have massive mobile phone masts (5G) right outside people homes here, that you walk right by. There are lots of churches with phone masts on top that you can still climb to the top of. So I don't think having a mast neccesarily makes it off limits to the public. But as for the...

    Alton Towers' Next Big Thing?

    Would be incredible wouldn't it... Would be beyond amazing if these planning concerns force the restoration and recommisioning of such a beautiful historic building.

    Alton Towers' Next Big Thing?

    No, the PC holds very little weight in these matters, I only shared that to reflect the concerns of the locals generally. The main problems, which they also highlight, are the concerns around the tower, as other consultees, who do hold more weight, have mentioned that too.

    Alton Towers | Nemesis | B&M Retrack | 2024

    Isn't the distance between rows greater on the newer style trains? Purely anecdotal I know, but I can put my feet on the back of the row in front on Nemesis, I can't on Inferno and other newer models. I wonder if Vests would require this bigger gap. If so, hypothetically speaking, the station...
