Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

I think McLaren we’re putting a lot of blame on the engine and really allowing their other design teams to go under the radar.

It’s a shame they were caught napping but hopefully this will give Red Bull a real title opportunity next season!

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

Well aside from the Hartley/Stroll incident that was quite a quiet race. A pair of slow races back to back never looks good for F1. It’s a shame that Bottas and Raikkonen don’t have the ability to challenge their teammates, but kudos to Bottas this weekend for putting together a solid race, in no wa...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I have never understood why they haven’t split the queue entirely to VR and non-VR with a station dedicated to each half. I know batching could be an issue but it’s likely that you could use 3 trains, 2 NVR and 1 VR.

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

Anecdote alert! I can't say this applies to the majority of the GP, however, I've always been struck how my non-enthusiast friends and family find Oblivion (front or back row!) so imposing and terrifying compared to the other rides at Towers. Oblivion's layout may be simple in comparison to newer d...

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

To be fair to Max he couldn’t anticipate Stroll brake testing him! But it was a decent race... not quite as exciting as the last two, bit I don’t think it could have been! On a side note I’m glad to see Hamilton back to winning ways as he definitely has the talent, despite his poor recent run of for...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Penguins would be AMAZING (charismatic megafauna ftw!) but would they have enough space for a decently sized enclosure for them or Otters? I'll be honest, I've not been in Sharkbait (it's usually too full of children for me) so don't know what it's like in there. They could easily have enough room ...

Did anyone see the post race interview with Christian Horner... I think more than a few veins had burst in the debrief!

Also what a race again... this title fight is going to be a nail biter

What a race! After Bahrain I thought this was going to be a little dull by comparison... boy was I wrong! Was screaming at the TV for Hamilton to put as the SC came out and showed that he should’ve been in after a fantastic choice of strategy by Red Bull Brilliant racing by Ricciardo and maybe a tou...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

That is actually such a good idea guys, it would really fit into the story of the AT hotel but also in my opinion a lot of the marketing over the last 10 years (excluding new rides) have been quite steampunk-lite.  A whimsical steampunk land would actually be amazing. Thanks! Let’s just hope that A...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I think the Storybook land is nice, but the only recently removed a very similar concept to put in CBeebies land. Removing the Storybook work, old Macdonald etc. A really interesting theme would be to go very steampunk for CCL, loads of smoke, steam and whistles, but obviously not another dark theme...

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

I think the biggest issue in the sport right now is drivers stagnating... Valterri Bottas - Dull to watch and has no fire to pass on track. Kimi Raikkonen - Well past his prime and being flattered by the car. Ferrari and Mercedes both have big enough budgets to get real racers in their teams an dI h...

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

Hi long time stalker here. Quick question on Oblivion construction. Was the hole backfilled on top of those arched tunnel supports or was it just covered over with concrete, essentially leaving a void. Been having a look round but cant find any pics? Not 100% sure myself but I think the metal arche...

Re: SW9

I’ve just been thinking about the location for the next ride at AT. Obviously Air car park is a likely choice, however there is also a lot of unused space on the old flume site (the other side from Wickerman) to drop a multi-launch through the trees there would be amazing, and may even tie together ...
