Re: I'm a Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here

I did it once, which was on media night where it clearly was presented at its best.

No big loss, but just another attraction to add to the SBNO list..

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The park needed an additional solid, reliable, landmark ride and I think Wicker Man was the right choice. As much as an RMC would have been my choice, the ride appeals to a very wide audience and should age well, if they look after it. Wicker Man definitely bought some of the appeal back after a slo...

Re: Six Flags Dubai

Google Maps have updated their aerial view of DP&R again showing the latest progress. How long it has been in this state I don't know - but the land is starting to look more theme park like.

Re: Christmas & New Year at the Alton Towers Resort

Alton Towers PR have asked us the following question:

A bit of an odd question but here we go! Do you happen to know anybody who owns an Alton Towers themed Christmas jumper, that they’ve perhaps knitted themselves?

If you do - please let us know! You may be featured in a Christmas media story.

Re: Paultons Park

As someone has pointed out on CoasterForce - the park clearly has enthusiasm and drive to succeed in the future. It's lovely to see.

Really need to pay a visit again - the last time was with SouthParks in 2008!

This looks absolutely immense. Cannot wait!

Will round off the parks coaster collection off nicely - they just need to dump Goudurix and RMC the woodie :)
