    Music Recommendations

    Not been on the forums for aaages. So here's some favs from the last couple of years. Just Vulfpeck being their usual groovy selves I spotted some Laura Marling on Peat's chart on the last page. The whole album is gorgeous I jumped on board the Susanne Sundfør train when she was full on...

    What is the most surprising airtime moment you’ve experienced in your enthusiast career?

    Yes! You just don't brace for airtime on an invert. Then it surprises you enough to make you lose sense of direction for a couple of seconds.

    I'm confirmed for this now. Can't believe it's taken 13 years to make it to Skegness.

    Last Cred Review

    Why is it that whenever I remember this thread, my last cred is always some kiddy cred? Anyway, the Go Gator at Loos Park... It might be the only Go Gator with a view of a UNESCO world heritage site (albeit mining slag heaps). Long ride cycle, forwards and backwards. As a Go Gator, 10/10. As a...

    "Now Showing"

    As usual, here's a post of films that came out in the last few years and only got around to seeing last weekend. Get Out This absolutely lived up to its hype. A delightfully twisted story with intriguing characters. The set up is ridiculous, but works so well, especially with the amount of...

    Phantasialand Live 2019: CANCELLED

    Don't know how packed we're talking, but overly busy days at large parks don't tend to make for good CF lives, even if it is Phantasialand. I'm happy to wait for another opportunity.

    Farup Sommerland | Saven | Vekoma Custom Family Boomerang

    Excellent! It looks like it should fit in nicely for the park. Despite being home to several large rollercoasters, the place has a very tranquil feel to it. Probably all the trees and lakes. There's something quite graceful about the way the layout bounces through the greenery.

    Futuroscope | Objectif Mars | Intamin spinner

    I'm guessing (hoping) that makes sense in the context of what's going on in the room. But... yeah.

    Rides that would be better without an element?

    The only thing that stops Taron being a perfect coaster is that trimmed airtime hill near the end of the ride. It's such a tiny moment but it takes me out of the zone a little bit.

    Swarming Up For The Season | Trip Reports

    Brief thanks while I'm on a phone... Serena, you organise a great live! Ian, you write a great tribute! Ac and Sue, you run a great taxi service! I'll be back with more later.

    Do you agree with ranking defunct roller coasters in a top coasters list?

    This is the kicker for me. I've got Kumba kicking around in my top 10 from 12 years ago, so I've got better memories of something like Wild Mouse, which I probably rode in its closing season. Of course this is all just stuff we do to keep ourselves entertained so I can write whatever rules I...

    Swarming Up For The Season | THORPE PARK | 31st Mar 2019

    My plans for this weekend so far are to stop over in Reading and get a train in in the morning. If anybody happens to be driving down the M40 and wanted some petrol money, I can help out for a lift. Anybody want to buddy up for 2-for-1 vouchers?

    Best moments on awful coasters

    I still maintain that one of the best inversions in the world is the zero G roll on Shockwave at Drayton Manor. It's a ridiculous moment of insanity on an otherwise dull and short coaster
