Re: Ride Downtime

Galacita,13 and Oblivion are all down, not looking good today. All queues are ridiculous.

Uhhh am I the only one seeing that the original video has been taken down?

No, It shows the video doesn’t exist for me. Wonder if Thorpe contacted whoever did it and asked for the video to be removed, or they are tricking us

Re: Cedar Point

I feel so sorry for all guests involved and Cedar Point. I don’t get how this has happened, but at least everyone is ok.

Re: Cedar Point

Steel Vengeance was closed today for a private ticketed event due to high winds. Hopefully it can open tomorrow for the ‘world premiere weekend’

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Just spotted this on channel 4 website: Alton Towers (title TBC) A one off documentary will go behind the scenes at Alton Towers, the UK’s biggest theme park as they launch their multi-million pound new rollercoaster, Wickerman. Eagerly awaited by rollercoaster enthusiasts as the first wooden rolle...

Re: Busch Gardens Tampa

That sounds like an RMC. “New beginnings from old traditions” sounds like something new is coming from an old attraction, like an RMC from a woodie, guess we just have to wait to see...

Re: Rate the Rollercoasters (2018 Edition)

Just out of curiosity @JC13, why exactly do you rate Nemesis so low, and Rita so high? It doesn't make sense! :lol I don’t mind roughness at all, so Rita’s headbanging doesn’t bother me, and I love launches, so I love the launch, and I find Rita to have good airtime, which I love. I’d take airtime ...

Re: Ride Downtime

Today was good for ride availability. Wicker Man only went down once or twice all day, and Oblivion closed once. Apart ftom that, I think all the other coasters were open all day!

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

After having ridden Wicker Man 9 times, I feel like I can give my review. The area around the ride is beautiful, and the music really compliments the area. Big Bob really does look intimidating from the ground. I love the entrance for the ride, it just fits in and looks great with the coaster speedi...

Re: PortAventura World

The childrens area at Ferrari Land has opened today, not heard any opinions yet, but it looks like a decent area. Not sure if Red Force Junior has opened though, as when I was there at the start of April it hadn’t even started being built. There were footers, but no supports or track

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


So excited! If this is an RMC i am praying for 2019, as I will be in Florida then. Can’t wait to see what comes from this!

Re: Cedar Point

This looks awesome! I definitely need to get out there. It is a very small complaint, but I’d have liked the track to be grey, to make the steel on wood even more noticable. It is a very minor complaint though, as i do believe this could end up being the best coaster on earth

There are 5 rooms, and a 6th one is on the way. I’ll be going back soon to try the next room i want to do: The Devil’s Playground

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Music and Videos

Just out of interest, does anyone know the music played around the entrance to Terror of the Towers? (Not Midnite Syndicate) it was played near the bridge. I’ve heard it sevral times away from the resort, just can never find it myself!

Many thanks
