Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Those festoon led lights don’t look great in the day do they? But they do look georgeous at night IMO  I’m a vaper, I don’t do it in queue lines, I sometimes have a quick suck, not enough to blow anything out, but that’s it... However, I do not use the designated smoking areas either. I use e cigar...

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

6 years now and... Well... basically nothing. I dont think this is going to happen. Shame. I see why you say this, but there’s been a lot of projects in the past that have taken a very long time to achieve. Not necessarily in this sort of entertainment, i.e video games, movies, cars, etc.. And like...

Re: SW9

Rita is finished, it is a very boring ride now compared to what’s about now, it was good at the time but now irrelevant. A Mack Multi Launch would be a very wise idea as Mack are getting such good reviews with their coasters. However, I do not believe Coaster corner will be used as it’s just a junk ...

Re: Drayton Manor

Sad times.. that ride had a very unique element that only a handful of coasters have in the world.. will definitely miss that lift, and the tight as hell top hat! such a shame, but hopefully Drayton can pull something out that is reliable and a thrilling family ride

Re: Merlin General Discussion

I think what doesn’t help Alton Towers is that people don’t want to keep going from one coaster to another, I have friends who hate coasters but love flat rides, which is slowly becoming a struggle due to queue times and removals of flats. I know this subject is talked about a lot but if Merlin inve...

Re: The Swarm

Forgot to mention, that gears sheering and breaking isn’t really a major problem, can be easily fixed and can literally be done in an hour or so.. well, dependant on the type of gear I guess haha. And if that’s true about the chain.. must of done a lot more damage than originally thought.. but if tr...

Re: The Swarm

If the noise you describe is a smashing/grinding noise, then that will most likely be the gearing, as gears are designed in a way that when under maximum to increasing tension the gear will sheer, resulting in the gears teeth seperating from the gear itself and causing a very loud uncomfortable nois...

Re: PortAventura World

The calendar is still not going past December :( Anyone know the roundabout opening date after the new year? Can’t wait to get a trip booked up! You will most likely find that the parks will close for a good 2/3 months, however they are closed quite a few days this year in December, and then Januar...

Re: Drayton Manor

Jesus.. yeah I can see why they need to remove it then.. whenever I’ve been the rides only run on 1 train, for the past few months I believe.. is such a shame.

Hopefully whatever problems DM are having can be resolved in the future, would hate to see this park lose it’s way

I was gonna say.. when I’ve been there 3 times this year Icon always had a big queue, and was constantly full. I would of assumed Icon is one of the most successful rides at BPB considering its had mostly positive feedback, wouldn’t say it beats the big one or Valhalla possibly but it’s definitely u...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I would assume that the show setup will be there.. however I do also think these markings will be for a new attraction(s) next year.

Think they realise it was a big lose for the Wild Mouse as it was one of the only 3 in the world left. A new flat would be very welcome in my opinion

This is just pure speculation but hear me out..

I do believe it will be Old Town area, specifically I believe that the sta...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

There has to be a point with Alton Towers where the accommodation reaches its max for hotels and cabins..

I’m hoping that once a good level of accommodation is done, then the park will start to be invested into more.. I.e.. new areas, rides, improvements etc.
