LOVE Angry Birds. but...

Reading from the article:

1. The park is based at under 10's
2. £250,000???
3. The images aren't very convincing
4. Compared to the park in Finland getting the Angry Birds land, will it be any good???


Clearly you've not been to Sundown before...

Re: UK's first Angry Birds activity park revealed

Yes, it's true that it is only a new playground with some IP attachments.  However, these attachments have given Sundown international publicity and not had to shove it in people's faces (*cough cough* Merlin).  I know this is overhyped and doesn't necessarily merit this publicity, but if ...

UK's first Angry Birds activity park revealed

12th April 2012 visit to Disneyland Paris

Ok, so here goes... For those of you who didn't know, I went to the 20th Anniversary celebrations for Disneyland Paris from 11 - 13 April staying at Disney's Hotel New York.  The decision to go was quite last minute, only booking the trip 3 weeks in advance after the announcement of a talk by T...

Re: Stop Kony now! Please read!

I will NOT be taking part or giving money to this when I can give more time and money to better causes and I WILL try and go on a campaign on 21st April putting troll faces, perhaps with a bag of 'swag' on every poster I see with Kony on it

Good day  :)

Re: SW7 Subforum

I do believe that more than one topic should be made for the developments of SW7 as it is difficult to read without having to go back 5 pages of posts to get an idea of what's being debated.  I understand that it would be difficult for the admins to allow people to create topics freely about SW...

Re: Most Overrated Alton Towers ride?

I would say Rita is. From what the usual visitor says about Alton Towers, they usually rate Rita over Nemesis, which is obviously not the case when analysed. As for air, I believe it is neither overrated nor underrated. True, the original images looked superb and we're now stuck with concrete being ...
