Re: Thorpe Park Resort - The Future

Thorpe do have a few different potential locations for any new coaster. As welll as the areas already mentioned, there is also the island behind The Swarm, and if I recall correctly the Resort have also identified the area behind The Dome, where the current Thrills Workshop sits, as a possible locat...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Going to Towers next week, is filming allowed in Wicker Man's pre-show and station, say with a mobile phone?  The official policy for the pre-show is that no filming is allowed. In the station is normally ok, provided your phone is put in a safe and secure place whilst you ride the coaster (for exa...

Re: The Walking Dead: Living Nightmare Extreme

I got to experience this today and sadly it just didn't live up to my expectations. As I can't really explain some of my thoughts without spoilers I'll pop my thoughts in spoiler tages below. I'll start with the positives. The slightly re-worked first scene worked well with Negan picking people ...

Re: Europa Park

It seems that the fire is now under control according to this tweet.

Europa's Rapids also look to be pretty badly affected by the fire, however Michael Mack has tweeted that Iceland, Portugal, Luxembourg Place and Colonial Place are all safe.

Re: Europa Park

Michael Mack has just confirmed on Twitter that the park have lost Piraten von Batavia and Norway completely, but so far no one has been hurt. Whilst this undoubtedly a huge loss for Europa, the main thing is that there doesn't seem to have been any injuries.

Re: Europa Park

I've just seen this news and really hope that everyone is ok and there aren't any serious casulties. Pirates in Batavia is going to be a huge loss for the park, judging by the images that have been published so far the fire looks quite substantial and I'd be surprised if there is much of the ride le...

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

Whilst Oblivion may not appear to have as much to it as some other dive machines, just remember that in 1998 when it opened, it was the first of its kind anywhere in the world. As with anything that's the first of its kind, the technology behind it will have been very new, and limited in what it wou...

As stated in the article, the information is from a meeting held between the Government Planning Inspectorate and LRCH on 9th March of which details were made available to SouthParks last night. I'm afraid we can't link to the source as it's not a source that can be linked to. I can assure you that ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Does anyone know what that stage is in the mutiny bay/welcominn courtyard is? I saw it again today and I’m really interested in finding out what it is. Looks incredible! That stage used to host the shows for The Pirates of Mutiny Bay. Sadly there hasn't been a pirates show for a few years now which...

Re: Cedar Point

Midway Mayhem posted a short video a few minutes ago regarding this which contains a small amout of more detail. From what they have been able to find out, the 'bump' was low speed - in the 5-10mph range, and there have been no injuries. It would seem there has been some damage to the track and sen...

Re: Black Buccaneer

I was there last Saturday (28th April) and there were what looked to be new supports in the pit for Black Buccaneer laid down flat. I'm hoping that this means we'll soon see it make a return, although there isn't any firm news as to when that coud be.
