Re: Planning- Netherlands/Germany 2018

Of the parks you're planning to visit,the only one I have experienced is Efteling. It's a wonderful park and I'm glad you're spending more than one day there as it's definitely a two day park at least, if it's busy when you go you could even spread it over a day or two more tbh if you want to see ev...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I don't think it's quite so drastic as that, all the non enthusiasts on my Facebook are super excited to ride and probably won't visit for a while when hopefully all the teething problems will be sorted. I think it's important not to overstate the drama on this, the ride is great and Alton are tryin...

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

 I was apprehensive after the events of the weekend that I wouldn't actually get to ride, however I visited the park briefly this morning and finally got on Wickerman! And a lovely sunny day to boot! (In my opinion)... Is it the best ride in the park? No. Is it the best wooden coaster I've ridden? N...

Is it more or is it shorter in length as there is only 5 folds whereas last years had 6.


We had this debate on park yesterday and compared this year's map to last year's, it is indeed smaller this year.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I haven't really looked into the box that deeply as I would never spend the money on one, however I know there was a similar question about the pin. From photos I've seen the pin included in the box does look different to the ones on sale in the shop, so could this be the same for the photo frame? M...

Re: Liseberg

For anyone wanting to do Liseberg, do it, even if you do go, it's not just the coasters which make it, the lighting and whole atmosphere around the park is beautiful, and also, if you can, try the restaurant underneath lisebergbanan. It's absolutely gorgeous but then again, the whole park is. Absol...

Liseberg is very near the top of my list of the parks I want to visit, along with Europa Park. Valkyria is just making me want to visit even more.

“TTSP does Liseberg” anyone? :lol

Re: Warwick Castle

Surely the Merlin tower wasn't that long ago, I know I went through it and I think my first visit to the Castle was only 2013/14, although actually that was a fair few years ago now :lol

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

I don't think ToT will be changed, as Katie stated ED92 think the period of refurbishment is not to change the theme,(unless they are completely misinformed,) it would make no sense to spend months working on the facade of a ride to then change it again in the near future. Personally I love Aerosmit...

The Commuter 4/10. Ive seen Stan's review, and it certainly goes to show how different people's views can be on the same film! :lol I love Liam Neeson, and Taken is one of my favourite films. But my gosh, The Commuter was rather boring. Samey samey action (ish) film and very easy to predict what the...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

In general though, I think it’s pretty clear that Merlin’s intention is to get more people choosing premium over standard, however the question is whether the number of passes they manage to convert will generate more revenue than is lost as a result of people choosing not to renew at all on standa...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Despite the pass offering good value, the changes to the standard pass are ridiculous, and I feel far too restrictive for some families. Standard pass holders cannot visit any weekend in August? Absolutely stupid - great for the general public because now I imagine it will be much quieter on park......
