Re: Merlin General Discussion

Blackpool is in my opinion more of an "amusement park" than a "theme park". It's got loads of heritage rides, and Merlin parks don't. My guess is that if they continue to add more amazing additions, like I'm sure icon will be, Merlin will actually have done good UK competition, b...

Re: Merlin General Discussion

Honestly Merlin are acting a bit pathetic about this at the moment. I mean I get that terror attacks have stopped people traveling to London, but that's one of many, many pies that Merlin have their fingers in, and if they want people to start traveling to their parks, they need to make sure that in...

Re: The Future of Sonic Spinball

Dragons furry is already at Chessington, so moving it to Thorpe doesn't seem logical at all. One of the Lego parks maybe?

Re: Do you get sick on theme park rides? You can help!

Never happened, other than when I rode the Smiler for the first time (which I've Ridden multiple times in a row since) and any pirate ship.

Re: The art thread

Thanks! I'm planning on posting a few more soon, but I'm waiting until I get a new phone that takes clearer photos, as my one at the moment can sometimes blur the lines a bit :-)

Re: Scarefest

Wow, from what I can tell atmosphere send to be really down this year, especially considering the stellar year they had last year. Hope it gets sorted for the main portion of scarefest in a couple of weeks!

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I think the two themes could be integrated much like in some of the pirates of the Carribbean films, with the very tribal Aztec things up at the top, but a gradual transition let and right back into pirate theming. That way, Merlin could put a few Azteccy tribal things into Sharkbait, while keeping ...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Whoooah. Anyone seen anything like this before? Not sure about Stealth and Rita, but as they're much smaller scale I can see them staying open. However, I can see the potential closure of Kingda Ka, and maybe RedForce.

Re: Ride pin badges

My absolute fave is my 2017 Rita Pin, it's an absolute beaut, but I carefully Pick and Choose mine. Nemmy's never had a good pin in my eyes, other than Neme21s a couple of years back!
