Re: Universal Orlando Resort

Well that's certainly a sad sight, although onwards and upwards and let's hope we get another high quality ride. I have faith in Universal, and if the rumours are anything to go by, it sounds exciting :)

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

So it's officially booked! 5th-8th January! Very excited as it will have been 15 years since my last visit, so I'm looking for any advice on things to do and see, I'm sure plenty has changed since :D Awesome! (I'm a little jealous :P) While Disneyland Park itself hasn't had many new rides - the onl...

If there is any reveal on Halloween itself I believe it'll be the unveiling of the theming structure- or at least I hope so! :)

Captain Underpants Movie: 8/10

I watched this with my little sister recently, and I was actually in stitches many times! Lots of good humour and a nice, enjoyable film for all of the family :)

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

Looks like this will be a great addition, I thoroughly enjoyed something similar to this at Siam Park recently, so this would definitely persuade me to visit over some of the other Florida options :)

That's really awful if that's the case, those effects are vital for the overall immersive experience. Let's hope they get them sorted soon.

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

Quick question guys, I'm looking at a trip in the first week of 2018. The only ride I can see closed that might be an issue is Phantom Manor- is this worth postponing a visit for?

Also being the first weekend of 2018- how many days will we need? Is it likely to be busy? Thanks :)

Re: Tulley's Shocktoberfest

I also visited last night, and having wanted to visit for the last 4 years, I had big expectations! It was a fun night, and the detail and theming within the mazes are astounding, truly immersive. They seem an ideal length before it gets too much, and the layout of the event works really well. It wa...

What about the fire effects used on Scorpion Express at CWoA?


I'd consider Scorpion's Express fire effect to be fairly small in comparison to what SW8 would require to have the desired impact. Also the fact the surrounding area will be 90% wood I just can't see AT taking the risk :)

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

As much as I'd love some sort of fire effects, I can't see Merlin investing in what would need to be a large fire effect to have any impact. In the current position with everything being under the watchful eye of H&S rules and regs I can't see them taking the risk. However the theming element is...
