Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Hereditary - 8/10 Go into this movie with expectations low, if you jump on the hype train you'll probably feel let down. This is not a jump scare movie & is simply a psychological horror so bear that in mind before judging it as "not scary" if you plan to see it.  It is a slow burner s...

Re: Drayton Manor

Your missing Pandemonium from your list :D Mine would have to be:

1. Maelstrom
2. Pandemonium
3. Apocalypse Stand Up
4. G-Force (simply because the lift hill is unique to the country)
5. Stormforce 10

How old does that make everyone feel.

Can't resist a ride on The Smiler, the rickety mass entanglement of steel that it is.

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Deadpool - 6/10 Nowhere near as good made it out to be. Sure it was still better than most DC films but just wasn't that funny or exciting. The actual promotional marketing of Deadpool 1 & 2 were far superior than the actual movies, this is pretty much factual. Whoever worked on the marketing m...

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: Going to Towers alone...

Would love to make a solo trip to Towers one day, just to see how it is with no one else! It's nice to be with people but it's nice also not to be. My solo trips are blissful, it's my day I go wherever I want, take however long I want, avoid certain rides if I want. I'm actually heading for a solo ...

The way this tears around the track almost looks unreal because of the new design. I can't wait for PoV & reviews of this thing.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Seeing on-ride POVs now in the dark it seems the on-ride photo is between the first & second sound tunnels, that dip.

Looks amazing but that tight turn after the second sound tunnel especially in the dark looks to be the highlight of the layout for me, it whips to the side fast.

Re: Silver Dollar City

That looks like fun & the turning of the cars is not that intense it'll be disorientating or sickly. Very solid ride.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I'm sorry but this is a step backward, why have CGI flames? I'm pretty sure they are not the real thing as we've all seen the real footage.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

This is going to look amazing at Scarefest but it's a real shame the smoke won't be present on the actual ride as it gives a great atmosphere around the Wicker Man. I'm assuming the smoke machines were purely for the promo photos anyway.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

There's a 5 metre Freefall drop and then a backwards section



Stops in the maintenance shed, a section of track turns a 180 so your hanging upside down, artificial fire below lights up all around, you free fall and then all goes dark. your dead lol.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Have to admit the quality standard isn't quite there for the price. I'm all for limited edition stuff but don't feel this is worth the price.
