Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Yay an opening date, but it seems that the back row will have a different height restriction.

This is an odd move as Macks other mega coasters are all 1.3m or below.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

Changing the subject a little, but here's my thoughts and experience with my ride on it this year. Spoiler free verdict: The same, but with a big downgrade. Firstly, the preshow was being run weirdly. By the time we entered the room (we were in the middle of our group) Derren had just begun ...

Cheers Michelle :) As far as I know we're staying close, but not on-site. The parks website also says it'll be a "lively" few days so it shouldn't be too busy!

Re: SP Spring Spectacular 2018 - Reviews & Feedback

Ok, this event was stupidly fun. Dragon's Fury ERT was mental, and one of the few ERTs where I've felt ill! The operations were silky smooth which meant we wouldn't have to queue hours for it later on. The talk from MMM was interesting and it's always nice to see what really goes on when designing a...

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

I experienced the retheme for the first time yesterday, and I can hardly say I was impressed. Firstly, the exterior. It's an endless concrete field of cattlepen! The queue moves incredibly slowly due to the preshow being a big bottleneck, meaning I had to queue 80mins in what looked like a 30min wai...

Planning- Netherlands/Germany 2018

Hey all, Currently in the midst of planning a trip to Europe for a bit of a coaster road trip. Starting off with two days at Efteling, nipping into Toverland, then finishing with two days at Phantasialand. I've not experienced any of these parks so I was wondering if anyone has any tips and tricks t...

Re: Tifford Valley Theme Park

Dragon Dash Thrilling yet serene, our intamin launch coaster weaves its way through the Sacred Gardens at tremendous speed. This really is George’s baby- he’ll often hang out and tamper with it if there’s not a lot that needs doing on the rest of the Resort. But what can I say, it’s brilliantly det...

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Managed to get both a front and back row ride today. It's kinda what I expected- fun, but not overly thrilling. Preshow is nice, ride has tonnes of lateral forces, but the brake run just feels empty. It feels like there's supposed to be more in there other than some fog and lights (that I assume the...

Re: Alton Towers 2019 Addition

Whatever happens, we need FLATS. And we need them FAST. The lack of filler-rides really shows nowadays, and makes the day a bit boring. Hopefully the resort will install some thrilling, high capacity ones next year.

Re: Tifford Valley Theme Park

Ritual Fall My personal favourite ride! Inspired by The Welcoming, this is a fully functioning drop tower with a theatrical-style queue. I don’t want to brag about it too much, so I’ll leave you with the POV. YYvNiMlV0EE https://i.imgur.com/UExSWZD.png https://i.imgur.com/dTBH3oE.png https://i.imgu...

Re: Tifford Valley Theme Park

Not the most exciting update, but a few things have been done! Firstly, the car parks are more or less done. All that needs doing now are some overflow fields, some foliage and road links to the surrounding villages. https://i.imgur.com/vkfY76t.png Next up is our topspin, Ninja. We aren't the best a...

Re: Last Game You Played and Your Rating

I've played a few recently, but I'll review just the one for now. Super Mario Odyssey- 9/10 Damn this game is fun. It's got so much character and is a real blast to play. My issue is with the post game- once you've saved Peach I didn't really have any motivation to continue playing (until the first ...
