Re: planning my daughters first trip to the towers.

RMT is always a good start for people that are unsure of rides. But if she has been on the big one I would think that most of the rides at AT she will be ok on. Spinball wizzer is a good ride. Good fun and not very intense.

Re: Have we been spoiled by Florida and DLP???

I have been to Florida a couple of times and I know how you feel. I miss the place all the time and I always want to go back. But we have got other things to pay for in our life and other places we want to visit. I dont think that it is totally the parks having bigger budgets and spending loads more...

Re: Florida - August & October - Advice?!

This is copied from a previous thread: Places we have eaten at are: Hooters! - An awesome place, the food is good especially if you like chicken wings and burgers and food like that. The girls tend to be very attractive. Its a good place to go and its not tacky at all, there has always been family's...

Hi Nemesis, I would just like to say when I get a bit more time (probably tomorrow night) I will bore you to death with a post. But for now I will just say that I hate you! :P Twice within 2 months! You must be loaded.

Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

I like the idea of going on the eurostar, but its all the messing about with other trains and buses at the other end that would put me off going that way.

Re: Am I too big for the rides?

To be honest when I have been in any theme parks UK or in Florida (there are a lot of larger people in Florida) I have never seen someone have problems getting in because of their thighs. It has always been a problem with the restraints going over their chest or stomach and not closing down enough t...

Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

I have been having a look and trying to work out the costs for a visit to Europa park. I found this B&B right by the entrance and it looks like you can walk strait in to the park from the B&B , is that correct?

Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

I am thinking of visiting September time probably the first half of the month somtime. I would aim to do midweek as well. I am guessing much like UK schools in Europe they would have gone back to school by then.

Re: Will Florida's theme parks be busy when i go?

Well a few years ago I went to Florida at the end of May beginning of June. The first week was pretty dead. I think the longest queue was 20/30 mins but that was Poseidons fury. The second week was busier but still manageable with using SRQ and just that theme park enthusiasts sixth sense of where t...

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

I had no problem with the vests on the ride, I thought the seats and restraints were great. I did not notice any pain from holding my arms up, I often get bruises from doing it on Stealth.
But I once did get stuck hanging face down on Air for about 30 mins so that was not the most comfortable!
