Am I the only one who thinks they've seen these symbols before? Not sure where though...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hi everyone, I'm wanting to do a trip up to the Towers before I head back home, problem is I am on the other side of the country to the park and am not too keen on driving 5 hours to get to the park. Is there anyway of getting to the park via train? And is there multiple shuttles going to the park a...

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

According to rumours, Guardians of the Galaxy are coming to WDS and will be overtaking a ride. Not Tower of Terror though as it is still a popular attraction that guests are 'attached to'. Instead they may overtake Rock N' Rollercoaster, as it would be easier to do and would require less work.

Re: Phantasialand

I'm looking forward to this massively, I'm hoping for a 2018 opening, as thats when I'm planning my first trip to this park. However it wouldn't surprise me if it was a 2019 addition. That being said, track is being installed quite fast, so if they manage to finish it by say, September, they could s...

Something I find intriguing is that we still have 3 year until we supposedly get this thing, planning permission I can see coming around mid next year, but we still have a 3 year gap without anything new. I can't see much for next year, maybe Loggers reopens and they give it a retheme and brand it a...

You know, when I first saw the image I did think that looked familiar!
Very exciting though! A big hint of a hyper in my eyes, just a shame we have to wait until 2020! Wish it could be sooner.... :(

Re: Walt Disney World - Disney's Animal Kingdom

Should have gone with Beastly Kingdom!

I think it is also a shame, maybe they are hoping that the Avatar sequels will help reignite the film franchise, but I still think it's an impressive land.

Should we talk about the price of this place? Because its quite expensive. I did some research and based on a 1 night stay with 2 adults and 2 children sharing, it comes to a whopping £450! You could get a lodge for nearly £150 less! All I can say is I feel incredibly sorry for all parents that take...
