Re: Project 2020

If this is planned for a March 2020 opening, it's only 16 months away. If it is a major coaster wouldn't planning permission be due to be sent?

Re: SW9

Could they build a water coaster as a family coaster, but not as a SW? I feel the layouts are very restrictive at the moment, and if it was a secret weapon they could somehow incorporate an option where you don't get wet? (Turn water apart from mid may-end of august)? If i was to throw a bet I'd gue...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

It's downright fun and rerideable, and I love it. best airtime in the UK, best trains, good length, inversions, near misses etc. I can run round again and again. Nemesis is the only other ride in the country I enjoy marathoning really, but towers on a busy day makes it hard, and i hate the fact the ...

Re: Last Game You Played and Your Rating

MotoGP 18 9/10 - it's a "niche" game apparently, like the f1 games (don't care about the series, don't buy it being some peoples mindset) but it really is great! it's very difficult to master but the assists, lap settings, penalties etc are all adjustable. The career mode is one of my favo...

Re: On-Ride Breakdown Experiences

I've witnessed Helix go back down the second launch, been stopped on Balder, Nemesis, Oblivion for cameras and been in two boat jams.

I'm pretty sure that was some type of Orange lighting Stan, it was definitely there when I first rode it.

Re: Ryan.B's NL2 Creations

So, over the past couple of days I've been working on an Intamin prefab. All I need now is honest opinions on the shaping and for me to create the finale. (was thinking a 180 turnaround before a helix and some bunny hills. Thoughts so far? https://i.imgur.com/IR65E6R.jpg https://i.imgur.com/EahiTMZ....

BUMP! Probably this topics poster of the most questions is back, with another one! :/ is there a guide on how to do recreations anywhere, and what is needed to attempt a recreation 1:1 scale, and also any decent tips? I'm wanting to recreate some custom coasters, "some car park" coasters a...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

The park, is great, the promenade is decent enough but the town as a whole is a bit run down in my opinion. don't park in the Pleasure Beach car parks, they're anywhere between 12 and 18 pounds I believe!

Re: Rita - General Discussion

I'm 5"8 and the big one at Blackpool towards the end of the train is a squeeze, as is Colossus, the SLCs tend to get better the taller you are though. The only ride I've had an issue on at Towers was Thirteen. I'm not sure why it is (foot room?) but I can never get comfy on it.

The Football Thread

I've noticed there seems to be no recent football thread on this forum, and with not everyone on the forums being football fans I thought it would be better to start a thread rather than take over the shoutbox. Also a lot of threads are premier league threads, yet a lot of this forum support teams o...

Re: Liseberg

Someone posted an article over on Towers Street, sounds like they're having a bit of problem with the hole they're digging. It's at 5m, but needs to be 8m. There's small canals running through that part of the park which could factor in.

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Take VR off, retheme it back to air, give the original oasis fountains etc. It should've never been retheme. The space theme can't be pulled off when you go flying past a car park. The whole Galactica retheme hasn't worked for me, and it doesn't fit.

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

I must agree about Hamilton. He has changed in recent years, although I could see him heading off to Moto GP within the next few years! No thanks :lol doubt he'd compete in the support classes, and he wouldn't risk it I don't think. Motorbike racers will be able to compete in 4 wheel racing, but I ...

Re: Project 2020

Whatever it is, I'd hope it focuses on airtime over inversions as much as I love wickerman, it's a twister layout, with 2/3 pops. Maybe a hyper RMC :lol

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Would it be a good idea for a test seat? I saw 3 people have to leave the ride and it did affect it. The queue was generally moving quickly though, a train was on the lift as the other rolled onto the brake run quite consistently. The ride team genuinely seemed like one of the most efficient in a wh...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Over the last two weekends I've been on the ride four times, with three of them being yesterday and not once did I queue over 70 minutes. I wasn't too optimistic about the ride but it's honestly beaten all expectations! Onto yesterday, first time I ride it it broke down in the queue in the afternoon...
