Re: Europa Park 2012: New Theme Park Attractions

One thing I noticed with the new teaser is that the font doesn't match at all with the first image as far s the MYT - THOS goes...not sure if it's simply EP testing out different fonts or a completely different word.

Re: Europa-Park 2012: Project Bell Rock (5th Resort Hotel)

Have we had any confirmation whether Bell Rock will have a bar/lounge or not? Granted I think Colosseo Bar will still be the place to be, but it'd be great to have another side stop, especially if CB is full as it usually is on weekends!

Re: Europa-Park: 2011 Discussion

Loving the new sound track...like Thomas said, 'gänzehaut pür'...just gives you goosebumps hearing it.

As for Piccolo Mondo...horrible...absolutely horrible.

Re: Phantasialand 2011: Kaiserplatz / Maus au Chocolat

The towers do fit in very nicely next to Colorado Adventure. Didn't ride them when we were there Monday, however. The Wave Swinger was pretty cool...standard swing ride, however the water made it what it is and it's pretty cool that the water follows the rotation. Was disappointed that Maus was not ...

Re: Busch Gardens Africa Project 2011

No worries...the plan has always been to lower the skyride towers so that's not an issue. Also the 'problem' with water in the trench has been planned for since the beginning. Everything is still on track for opening schedule. :) Also for the restraints, to quote our friend Mike T here's a little in...

Re: Europa park summer 2011

I will be in the U.S. from June 21-Jul 18, any time not in the time frame I would def be willing to join in. Would have to be a weekend though for me since I can't take that much leave with over a month being spent in the U.S.

Re: Which Browser Do You Use?

Rockmelt for me. It's basicly Chrome w/ advanced Facebook/social networking integration. As much as I'm on Facebook Rockmelt makes it that much easier for me...lol.

If anyone wants an invite, let me know!

I'll most likely be there on behalf of RCPro and will of course also be heading to IAAPA in Orlando in November as well. I can't wait! :D

Re: Busch Gardens Africa Project 2011

Opening day should be on or around Memorial Day as usual. Lately there hasn't been much track work, however they've been working quite feverishly on the trenches and footers.

By next week work should progress rather quickly again and we'll of course go back to daily update. :)

Re: Merlin Standard Annual Pass: Free Parking to end in 2011

Going to AT is not an essential commodity. AP is not an essential commodity. Parking only becomes an essential commodity when you go. I love parks as much as anyone, but I know If im in a pinch where 5 extra matters to my bank account, i probably shouldnt be going to the park to begin with. You guys...

Re: Merlin Standard Annual Pass: Free Parking to end in 2011

Fact is, you don't have to go every other day. If everyone is in such a pinch and can't afford 50 extra a year when you would normally be paying much more in daily admissions, then you have no need to be going to an amusement park. Last time i checked, Alton Towers was not an essential commodity and...

Re: Merlin Standard Annual Pass: Free Parking to end in 2011

Public transportation in most parts of the U.S. are useless unless you are in certain cities. In the case of Towers or w/e...carpool. 4-5 people per car costs you £1/person give or take...whether they make money by raising admission/cost of AP or charging you that for parking, it doesn't matter. And...

Re: Merlin Standard Annual Pass: Free Parking to end in 2011

Wow, you guys have some serious issues if you have a problem with Merlin taking free parking off of an annual pass. £5 at Towers...give me a break, stop being so cheap! Average parking in the U.S. for an attraction is $10-15, and even that isn't that bad of a price and here's why. You're paying £150...
