I bought Bounceback tickets twice last year and both times it was £13..? It was advertised on the Day Designer as '£5 for next day fun' or something like that - but when I purchased them it was £13 each for the second day? Once in March and once in July. Either way hopefully they'll be returning. We...

Nice construction pictures! It's been so long since I've been to Pleasure Beach as well. When does it open?

That 'Magic Factory' video is quite interesting. Do they actually make workers play musical chairs?

I'm not personally bored of AT myself - amazingly - given the amount I visit in relation to where I actually live! My interest in AT never stemmed specifically from excitement over new projects (although admittedly, the reason I found this site was because I wanted to see what they were installing ...

I'm also quite looking forward to this season, when I compare it to some others. Although I didn't see much wrong with Merrie England, I'm really looking forward to the new theming and seeing what they've got planned. The flattening of ME though? I notice a slope, but it is really that bad just for ...

I thankfully don't get motion sickness, so I personally don't get sick on rides. I don't think I've ever been to a park with someone who has gotten sick either. If anything I think my cousin did once in the car back, but that's because she gets car sick, not from the rides lol. Now that I think abou...

I always keep my shoes on on rides. Whenever I'm going to the park I look out my good van trainers as I know I'll be walking around a lot, and my feet would get awfully sore in usual little flipflops or pumps. If anything I'd like to try Nemesis without them. I wouldn't really see a point in taking ...

They look pretty good yeah, really dead lol.

I liked the acrobatic rabbit live actors at Easter time who were just walking back and forth at the bottom of Tower Street doing flips.
I do have a phobia of mascots and people dressed up, but still enjoyable :p

I think it would be quite a good add on if they do. Enjoyable for kids. Where are these pictures though? I'd quite like to see them.

Uh, Monday probably? Sunday was great, apart from the fact that we nearly drowned there was that much rain. We were so tired from walking around in the rain that we stayed in bed until 11am the next day and didn't go into the park until 12. So, it was much warmer and of course filled with hundreds o...
