    Thorpe Park: What could the future hold?

    I'm a big fan of Black Mirror but I can't see what I love about the show translating into a temporary, low budget walk-through. Based on the concept art and description I think this will have a generic Sci Fi 'technology powerful and bad' theme rather than be recognisably Black Mirror. I mean...

    Unfinnished Business | FINLAND |24th - 26th Jul 2020

    Never been to a Live before but thinking of biting the bullet and going for this one. Unfortunately I can't take the Monday off work so I'll probably do Linnanmäki by myself on Thursday then get the 14:05 flight home on Sunday. I'm keen to drive but not sure I could do the whole lot by myself...

    Ranking the Europa Park Dark Rides

    Thought this would be an interesting one as with so many middle of the pack dark rides the lists will vary a lot. I'm also interested to see where Snorri Touren fits in for those who have ridden it. Here's my thoughts. 1. Arthur - I mean, how could it not be? The only truly modern dark ride at...

    Territories with a disproportionate number of a ride type.

    I've always thought two Madhouses in the county of Staffordshire is a bit much.

    The first UK RMC; where will it happen?

    The talk surrounding Thorpe getting an RMC does not correlate one bit to Thorpe actually getting an RMC. It's not even a rumour at this point. With Steel Vengeance you can understand the speculation as Mean Streak was a huge structure with low ridership in a park full of world class coasters...

    Biggest Disappointment...

    Pretty sure all three quotes were from Theme Park Worldwide, it's just the opinion of one bloke. Moral of the story Matt is to not put certain people's opinions on a pedestal and just enjoy stuff for what it is. In terms of Olympia I think it's somewhere between 'alright' and 'pretty great'...

    SW9 at Alton Towers

    This is 100% speculation and what you want to happen. I'm all for speculation and blue skying but you've got to present the discussion to us as that rather than 'This is what they'll definitely do'. So far we don't have any substantial rumours about what or where SW9 will be.

    SW9 at Alton Towers

    And all this is based on a survey asking guests about rides? What a leap.

    SFMM | West Coast Racers | Premier Quad Launch Möbius Sky Rocket

    In terms of track and train I really like it. Good mix of airtime and inversions, almost RMC esque in places. The duelling looked super exciting on the POV so I imagine it will be even better in person when you can look around. The theming, branding and area I can't muster up the excitement...

    Roller Coaster TV Programs and News Articles!

    I don't think a YouTube comment is worth investigating. It's a worthless piece of information.

    Tayto Park News/Discussion

    Nice. A station fly through of a different coaster is pretty novel. Looking forward to seeing how else both coasters interact with each other.

    Fantawild Park 2 | Ningbo China | Theme Park

    I'm possibly being fooled because they're the same colour but I'm getting iSpeed vibes from this. Mainly the shorter train, the launch in to one big element followed by lots of low to the ground ones and the insanely fast barrel roll.

    Halloween at Energylandia/Legendia

    Cheers mate! Glad I could provide some hype, looking forward to seeing your views on the park. Unfortunately I didn't manage a night ride. I went to Energylandia the day after the clocks went back (that was a weird one reverting my watch back to UK time on day two of the trip) so I had half an...

    Halloween at Energylandia/Legendia

    Sunday 27th October - Energylandia Nice easy park to get to, the bus leaves Katowice at about 8:30 and arrives at the Energylandia entrance an hour later (for £3). As you get close you can see Zadra peeking over the trees then as you get closer the structure starts to appear. First impressions...

    An enchanting weekend in Gothenburg: The Liseberg Confessional

    Nice report, I had no idea Liseberg went in so hard with their Christmas stuff. It looks so magical and you captured it wonderfully. How much is closed for the event, is it just Atmosfear and Helix? I also loved Universum, I went in to kill a few hours before my flight but ended up adoring the...

    Europa Park | Rulantica | Waterpark

    I was feeling slightly underwhelmed until I saw the nighttime video then I realised how much atmosphere the place will have. My main concern is that majority of the attractions are off the shelf tube slides that will ride the same whether they're in a bare concrete waterpark or Rulantica. It...

    Tonnerre de Zeus to be Renovated for 2021?

    A year ago I would have read this and thought 'pah, ridiculous' but now we live in a post Flamingo Land 2020 world I'll take it with a pinch of salt and put it in the possible but unlikely pile. Never rode TDZ but would happily take an RMC over it.

    Energylandia's Future Additions

    It's great to see Abyssus integrated within the new land, the path through the batwing is particularly striking. As excellent as Hyperion and Zadra are they are just plonked on the edge of the park so it's nice to see Energylandia moving away from this.

    Halloween at Energylandia/Legendia

    Good evening and welcome to my Poland trip report. This is my second time visiting these parks having been last year just after Hyperion opened. A really good time was had and I was pleasantly surprised by how different Energylandia felt this time around. Let's get into it! Saturday 26th...
