Taron :)

Did someone sell them the promise of a 4D coaster?


Whoops, I thought that was Mack.. that’s embarrassing.

Re: Tayto Park

Is there an Intamin Blitz coaster in Europe?

At least we know it’s steel, but I’m absolutely stumped on what this could be..

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Be gone with it.. Personally, the Galactica theme is fantastic for the ride to work with, but more theming elements should be added to enhance the area further. Such as near misses, tunnel retheme to match what was on the VR with lighting. Apart from that the ride is fine and still packs somewhat of...

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

That’s brilliant!!! Well done Colchester Zoo for recognising that Vapers are trying to make a healthier choice and don’t want to inhale smoke, especially not somebody else’s. As good as that is, I’d personally want the vaping area a good 15-30 feet away from the smoking area, as you’d still be able...

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

As good as that is, I’d personally want the vaping area a good 15-30 feet away from the smoking area, as you’d still be able to smell the smoke from there on a not so breezy day.

But it’s still better than what AT and other Merlin parks offer.

Re: SW9

Rita should go, and invest in a new Intamin Blitz coaster with 3 launchs, utilising the area Rita currently uses, and where UG Swinger and BoneShaker used to be.. this could potentially be a pretty long and well themed ride for Dark Forest.

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

No ones opinions are incorrect or correct as they are opinions and never ever be worried about sharing it @nicky.borrill. Smoking and Vaping is a high 'trigger' for many people and it gets conversation happening. Whilst I don't think vapers should be made to use the smoking areas, I do feel that th...

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

Those ‘cloud chasers’ have a lot to answer for. Before sub ohming, and cloud chasers, most indoor places allowed vaping, it was inoffensive and didn’t cause anybody any bother. Then some folk started going too far, blowing out giant plumes of thick, sweet smelling, vapour and all hell broke loose. ...

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: 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

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...
