Re: Safari Lodges Development

It's a shame the bar has been cut, but still has the potential to be a lovely development. Just to confirm, the bar hasn't been 'cut'. It'll be part of a secondary expansion application once the initial set of Lodges is built. Essentially, Chessington ran into huge problems with the original applic...

Re: Chessington - The Future

The field at the corner of the Vampire and Dragon's Fury has been earmarked for development for a fair while, and I could see it nicely housing a wooden coaster, given how they've implemented Wicker Man. It's to my understanding that they can't build on that green area next to Dragons Fury as it is...

Just to confirm, it's not 'Almost' complete. Land of the Tiger is complete bar snagging which is on going by the contractors.

Re: Chessington - General Discussion

It's a concept that was drawn up by John Burton. It's not an official concept and one that was put together before he went on to work for Merlin Entertainments.

Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

I doubt it'll re-open. Dragon Falls had a lot of work done to add in new evacuation platforms and steps that are most likely too costly on Loggers and Flume. So I believe it's a H&S thing.

Oh, I know that. The transit system is fab and works great, it's the VR that's the issue.

It was fun, but it's still very glitchy. 5/10.

Re: Ninjago Masterclass - 2017 Attraction

Rode the one in Billund on Thursday. Great attraction. So much fun, the shooting is tricky but the ride experience will be great for Windsor. Not sure how it'll do capacity wise though.

Re: Thrilling Coaster

Toadies / Peeking Heights / Mystic East is more than likely where the next 'big addition / coaster' will go once the park have finished fixing everything up. At the moment, the parks 'Putting the Theme back into Theme Parks' programme is what they are focusing on and when the park re-opens for this ...

Re: Chessington - The Future

I have to say, when we walked around Tomb Blaster to take those photos and talked to the people behind the changes, the amount of passion and excitement was oozing from them. I cannot wait for this season to begin to we can get on there and experience it all under show lighting.

Re: The Swarm

I loved back row Swarm facing forwards. Watching the train peel away into the first drop / inversion was a sight to behold. The inner geek in me loves this!
