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

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

Re: Escape Room Attractions

I’ve done The Great Escape Game in Leeds, and really enjoyed the room i did.

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

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

There has been a fire at Towers, and the park won’t be open today.

Edit: Turns out it was April Fools.

Re: Alton Towers 2019 Addition

If AT only read one topic on this forum I hope it’s this one. FLATS, FLATS, FLATS I’ve been saying it for years, AT needs a new flat ride in ever location of the park. This will push AT to be a 2 Day excursion park rather than the 1 day it currently is. I’m not sure the average cost of flat rides b...

Today, in the Oblivion shop

Boy 2: “Yeah, did you know it hangs for 5 seconds?”

Also, the last thing on the restrictions board states “Some Wicker Man scenes may be unsuitable for younger children or vulnerable persons who may find this experience frightening”


Wonder why this is on the board
