Re: Florida July 2011 - Rollercoaster Thoughts

Ooooh, Scorpion slipped my mind :D It was good, my dad and sister were a bit freaked by the lap bars but it was all good. Not as intense as I had heard but nonetheless, a nice little credit ;)

Florida July 2011 - Rollercoaster Thoughts

I arrived back from Florida this morning and thought I'd make a quick, rare post on TT to detail my thoughts on the new (and old) coasters that I rode whilst there. I'll cut to the chase and get rid of the waffle. ON WE GO. I'll do them in the order is which they were ridden: Busch Gardens Gwazi Now...

Water Parks near Sarasota/Tampa Bay

Hello! My family and I are going to Sarasota this year and are going to be purchasing 3 park Busch Garden tickets which gives 14 day access to Seaworld, Aquatice and of course Busch Gardens. Why do you need to know about water parks near Tampa, I hear you cry? It's because Aquatica is 2 and a half h...

Re: Crocky Trail, 7th May

Such a shame I hadn't seen this topic before hand, this place is arms length from my house! I hope by "change of injury" you mean, injury inevitable! I came out of the place with 2 deep cuts last summer which have left me with some lovely scars :P The place is so fun though, and I wouldn'...

Re: Crocky Trail, 7th May

Although I'm not coming, I just thought I'd suggest you meet in the car park by one-stop and the selection of shops surrounding it. You should meet up beforehand because the crocky trail people are liable to try and squeeze as much money out of you as possible :D I presume Vic has plenty of local kn...

Re: Drayton Manor Plus interview with Colin Bryan 2010

What an odd interview, for some reason, I find it very hard to believe that's real. For one, I fail to believe DMP would be represented which such a horrendous mass murder of all grammatic rules.

Re: Everland announces Eagle's Fortress replacement for 2012.

At least they're replacing it but like Astro says I can't see it being worthy of being Eagle's Fortress' replacement. I have a funny feeling they just got very lucky with the design of that one.

Re: Florida - 19th July - 2nd August 2010 *VERY PICTURE HEAVY*

Honestly Dan, this is the best TR I've ever read, completely comprehensive and I'm sure at some points when writing though, 'I really can't be bothered anymore' but I didn't see any sign of it. I returned from Florida after a week there a few days ago and one of the first things I did was to come on...

Re: B&M Prototype Confirmed for Gardaland in 2011!

I don't know about you but I get the impression from the X in the name that it could that X2's path and have the seats move? It looks good, and maybe they'll do the double deal like they had with rita and stick one of these at Thorpe.

Re: Too scared to go on thrill rides?

As said, gentle persuasion and re-assurance usually works but if it's a group of lads, abuse and ridicule is probably most effective and if someone doesn't go on, don't let them live it down. In regards to whoever said why force someone on a ride (I forget who) I think you'd know if they genuinely d...

Re: Quick Questions 2010

Yeah you can buy fasttracks from the ticketbooths also, but the 2for1 vouchers you have only cover admission tickets as opposed to fasttracks.

Yeah they definitely look good but if you were flicking through a holiday brochure and were looking hotels in Italy. Recommended to this hotel is to visit a park called Rainbow Magicland. I'd personally be very worried by the area I was visiting :P

Re: Rainbow Magicland: Coming 2011 to Rome!

I don't think in any language Rainbow Magicland can be made to sound completely ungay. I really think they seriously need to rethink the name.

Re: Rainbow Magicland: Coming 2011 to Rome!

Looks like a really decent park but I can't help but feel disappointed a the name. Rainbow Magicland, really? I don't think anyone would even name an RCT park this. It sounds more like something out of a film with an LSD high plotline.
