Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Finally got my chance of riding Icon a few times on the weekend, and I can safely say that is isn’t the best coaster in the UK.. but my god does it pack a punch. As The Smiler is my favourite, I have a hard time currently trying to figure out what I like better.. Icon is simply fantastic and a well ...

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

I'm kinda betting that the 2 drop sections will be slightly different from each other, with them having different audio effects, still quite an interesting development happening! Also I had no idea they were planning something else for Jurassic Park, I wonder if it maybe a Flying Dinosaur clone or ...

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

That’s going to be a nice feeling falling for that amount then.. Th13teen usually gives a right good ache in the nether region :lol

Next few weeks should be good to see construction updates, especially with anything new for JW

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

So.. it’s been confirmed that there will be a drop section on the new ride.. if anyone didn’t know that already.. And the launch systems are either all in place or are getting in place, it’s something to note that the launch segments are spaced out. This could represent Hagrids motorbike when it bac...

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

You have to take into consideration all the aspects of this project, like you have said something of this magnitude hasn’t been done in a long time in the UK.. I’m sure that this project is still alive and is being worked on.. it’s just very well hidden! I can only imagine all the set backs that thi...

Re: SW9

I think it would be reasonable to consider Rita being replaced.. being brutally honest.. it was good for it’s time but now is just not worth queuing up for, to me anyway.. I agree that an Intamin Blitz/Mack Coaster would go there quite nicely as the old UG Swinger and Boneshaker site are not being u...

How can you be disappointed but not surprised? :lol

What’s been the average wait time for people when going to ride WM?

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

I’m sure if it’s anything.. we’ll hear something about this at some point in the future.

I would assume that the name could be changed as Robert has said. Something a bit better than “London Resort” would be nice!

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

As long as they give the wild mouse a fitting successor, I don’t have a problem with them adding 3 new rides potentially.. would be nice to see something happen to Trauma Towers!

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I do believe this will become the best ride in the UK. It looks incredible, can't wait to head over this spring. I haven't set a date to go up but glad people who have ridden it feel the same. It stood out from all other UK coasters and looks like an all round crowd pleaser. Now we'll just have to ...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

So.. better than Wicker Man?

I only ask this since people believe Icon is better, or Wicker Man is better.. more opinions the better :P

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

6 IP’s.. wonder what they could be?

I like how they have split the hotel and park in Gate 2 for further developments after Gate 1 is finished. But 3550 rooms.. that’s insane!

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

I actually am, in some way, hopeful that Loggers Leap re-opens in the future as the work that’s been done on Tiger Rock is rather spectacular. There may be a lot more to recover but surely it would be worth it? With a new potential re-theme and with an addition of a ride in Slammer’s (RIP) location,...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

They should make a projection for the maintenance shed.. the art style they used for the pre-show is gorgeous, could have quite a spectacular ending to the ride.. enhancing the experience further.. then that cheeky little scare with the triggered effects.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Oh.. by the way.. this is the first coaster since The Smiler crashed.. just saying, just in case nobody knew about this.. oh I almost forgot it happened in 2015.. yeah so now you know.. just in case you didn’t know.

Joking aside, this should be a nice little watch :)

It appears that the entire Kent Online website is down, as I can't even access the homepage.

The SouthParks article containing all the information regarding the delay can be found here.


Thank you :)
