I stayed at PortAventura hotel last October, 4 nights 5 days, flights, half board and transfers for £320pp.

Re: Dubai Parks & Resorts

Well I was referring to building new attractions there, rather than build another park. It seems as though it is a way to make a lot more money like a certain Ferrari World That makes no sense... They are building new attractions at the park... This project is an expansion of the current park, not ...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

The reason for people's lack of faith is because this was Altons response last year when pictures started to emerge of Ripsaw in pieces. I have only been able to look at the pictures on my phone so far but the supports in the first picture appear to have been cut off. Sent from my E6653 using Tapat...

Re: Fireworks

Can I just say, the amount of negative over the park being busy is absolutely ridiculous, of course it would be busy! Obviously Saturday was a bit crazy however Sunday was fantastic! The firework display was amazing, the best I've ever seen! I absolutely loved it! Everyone else around me loved it to...

Re: Drayton Manor

Sadly, I see Drayton going into a state like chessington. They invest very little in rides, whether thrilling or not and will now focus on the zoo even more. Drayton manor simply needs a good, thrilling coaster to ever entice me to ever come. Until something changes at Drayton, I will rate the park...

Re: Dubailand

I'm sorry but everything seems too similar to LEGOLAND Windsor. They even have the same models in the Egyptian area! I understand that LEGOLAND parks are going to have similar styles in every park, but some of the things here just seem a little unoriginal. But that doesn't matter though. It's highl...

Alton Towers ALWAYS reduce merchandise as this time of year. Almost all of Galactica's merch is also discounted.

Kraken's not rough? It's not silky smooth but it's not very rough either, I find it kind of in the middle. The company does have the money (just about :lol) to give it the Hulk treatment, but I can't see it happening anytime soon. It won't happen anytime soon because it doesn't need to be done anyt...

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

^SeaWorld definitely have the money. They are a massive company, that own much more than just the SeaWorld parks. However Kraken really doesn't need to Hulk treatment, it isn't rough, the theming is still lovely in the queue. It really doesn't need improving at all tbh. Sent from my iPhone using Tap...

Well how on earth would it have ended up stalled at the bottom of the batwing otherwise..?

Re: What will Alton Towers be like in 50 years?

All the rides you see today even cbeebies land and the buildings will be all gone replaced only thing what will be the same is the towers. Because come on no rides and last 50 years. Of course rides can last 50 years! If maintained properly they can last forever! Weather they would still be popular...

Very strong rumours that Dragon Challenge will be closing in the next couple of months to make way for a brand new coaster for 2018. Get there whilst you can I guess! If that rumour turns out to be true and m they don't get relocated to another park/s then these will be the first ever B&M coast...

Re: SW8

DBGT definitely did not cost 40 million, so I'm unsure where you got that from... The most I've heard it come to was 30 million but even then I find that hard to believe...
