Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

We heard about this a while ago, apparently this is no different to Blue Fire & Helix. It's due to the BigBoy seats being on the back row. All other rows are 1.3m :)

Re: Busch Gardens Tampa

Gwazi now has it's supports littered with markings that look eerily similar to Mean Streak and the like.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

People shouldn't smoke in queue lines, in my opinion. It is unfair to damage the health of others to satisfy a craving. Other people do not wish to have harmful excess tar secreted into their lungs against their own will. If you can't last the queue time without needing to smoke, then don't queue.

Really? That’s such a shame! There are no kiddie coasters left at Sea World, hopefully they get one in the next few years


The ride is being kept apparently, but rethemed into part of a brand new themed area, stay tuned :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Another difficult day, has spent far more time closed than open.

This is so strange, other new GCIs have nowhere near this amount of downtime.

Re: Busch Gardens Tampa

It's being reported this evening that Busch Gardens Tampa have indefinitely closed a number of attractions in the Jungala area of the theme park in an effort to cut costs. As part of the closures, the entirety of the Treetop Trails section of Jungala, located towards the back of the park, has been ...

Well we're on park and yes there is snow and ice

Typical BBC & Met Office then :P

I do wonder why Oblivion is opened but none of the others are though, and why they were saying that there would be a full ride offering.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

There is no snow or ice, temperatures are currently 6/7°C and winds are only 11mph according to the BBC and Met Office.

The park also confirmed earlier today that they expected a full ride offering.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

The cuts to the technical services department are really showing this season.

What a sad state of affairs that this is becoming normal :(

Monorail is currently unavailable as well.

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

Seems to be getting mixed reactions to say the best. Lots of people commenting that it isn't as scary as advertised, which is true.

Still don't understand why they slapped a horror brand onto a family coaster. The branding and the ride itself just don't match.

I mean, of course there is still some excitement, but headlines like this aren't great: https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/father-son-reveal-six-half-14454217 More of an enthusiast thing, but with the park in such poor shape this year, it's making it really hard for me to be excited...

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Wicker Man is a fantastic addition to the park! Whilst the coaster itself is not as good as Grand National or Megafobia, the overall experience is absolutely incredible and something that Alton Towers should be very proud of. Here's to hoping that they can iron out the technical issues of the past c...

Seriously?


Yeah, it's going down every 5 minutes, which is understandable with a new ride, but many people are getting really annoyed.
