    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    Probably all of the above - seems like fairly easy fixes to stop something like that from happening again. I think it will especially be a problem at the start of the season when the weather can be much colder + later in October.

    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    Well, at least they got it open for 4 full days before they had another big issue 🙃

    Croc Drop style tower to replace Gardaland's Sequoia Adventure (page 3)

    It looks like such a lacklustre investment. The name, the styling, the story, the ride type - it's all so meh.

    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    I find the entire marketing campaign for the new attraction somewhat lacklustre. Outside of the theme park community, I think they've really missed the mark. Hopefully, once it's open they'll throw the kitchen sink at it, as they really need to - this can't be a cheap machine so they'll need...

    Parc Astérix New Additions

    I visited Parc Asterix for the first time last year and I thought it was a fantastic park - but you could really tell between their new investments and the older areas. This is going to be very welcome and bring some of those tired areas up to standard with the rest. I think there is a hugely...

    Europa Park | Voltron | Mack Rides Stryker Coaster | 2024

    There is such a huge amount of tech crammed into the ride I'm a little worried about what it's reliability is going to be like in the future 🧐 I know it's Europa and they're all over these things - but still, there is only so much they can control.

    Drayton Manor Resort Five Year Plan 2022 - 2026

    It's a very good move for the park to bring an ageing coaster up to date with new trains. It's just a shame the cars look a bit 'scrap-heap challenge' and unfinished, and it's a shame they couldn't stretch to a repaint of the track as it does look in a bit of a sorry state in the pics.

    Europa Park | Voltron | Mack Rides Stryker Coaster | 2024

    This does look incredible, and something that Europa has needed in the sense of a 'world class' coaster. Their thrill roller coaster line up is very good, but this looks outstanding.

    Universal considering UK theme park in Bedford

    I'd be willing to put my life savings on the fact that will be a huge Harry Potter aspect to this park. The UK is the home of Harry Potter, and they could do something incredibly special here that would bring Harry Potter fans from around the world to visit it. I would also argue there will be...

    Legoland Windsor Future Developments

    Unless I missed something, I thought it was meant to be themed to cops and robbers? Would have been a cooler theme in my opinion, and could have worked the mansion into it too. However, whatever the theme, it is 2 very much needed roller coasters for LW, which should be welcomed with open arms!

    Efteling | Spookslot Replacement | Intamin Dynamic Motion Stage | 2024

    Some more stunning pictures of the attraction from Efteling themselves 😍

    Efteling | Spookslot Replacement | Intamin Dynamic Motion Stage | 2024

    They really throw the kitchen sink at their projects - this looks absolutely spectacular! I have no doubt it will be a worthy successor to the original.

    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    Station update - does look a bit of a box but does the job - at least it has a roof!

    Major Expansion Announced for Tokyo DisneySea

    It looks beautiful, but I really think this belongs in Tokyo Disneyland park and not Tokyo Disneysea. I'm sure they will still be ludicrously popular though!

    Legoland Windsor Future Developments

    This expansion looks really dull. They could have done something really fun with it, but all in all, it just looks like the same accommodation with different decals. I'm sure it will still cost £400.00 a night - excluding breakfast, tickets and parking.

    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    The map is very bland. I know they're rebranding this year, but it just looks so corporate and flat. Where's the excitement - Hyperia looks like a family coaster!

    Drayton Manor | Unknown | Intamin Unknown | 2024

    True - but also Drayton Manor haven't had the best track record. However, they are turning it around with new owners - so I shall reserve my judgement!

    Drayton Manor | Unknown | Intamin Unknown | 2024

    I agree with this, and my worry is, even if it is heavily themed with a story-led element - give it two or three years and it won't work. We don't have a very good track record of dark rides and experiences being looked after in the UK...

    New attractions at Paultons Park

    Here are some more pictures of the updates happening at Paultons. By the sounds of it, it's going to be an exciting season for the park. The park needs a few more indoor attractions for when it rains.

    Legoland Windsor Future Developments

    The track is almost complete and they've installed a 30ft 'minifigure' which looks awsome. A great addition to the resort in my opinion - Legoland has been crying out for a new coaster for years, and now they've essentially got 2 at the same time.
