Re: Cedar Point

I was fortunate enough to be able to ride Steel Vengeance last week and all I can say is wow! The coaster is just incredible no matter where you sit, although I would say that the ride I had at 11pm at night was definitely the most intense. From the start to the end there is very little let up, it'...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

I've finally caught up with all the Scarefest announcements having been away in the US when everything was announced. It's certainly good to see a number of new additions to the Scarefest line-up, not just in terms of a new maze, but also to the family line-up and general atmosphere across the park....

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

To save it burning a hole in Merlin's pockets, I presume... From what I understand the fire being off is NOT a cost saving measure, I've heard a couple of rumours as to why it's having to be left off, however without something more definitive to back those up I'm reluctant to post those rumoured re...

Re: Colossus

As rough as Colossus is, can Thorpe really afford to lose it right now? With Loggers Leap clearly not returning, if Colossus did close for good that would be the loss of two major rides without replacement. Whilst you could argue we've gained DBGT, it really can't be compared to the likes of a major...

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...

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...
