Re: Lightwater Valley

Yo.

Does anyone know if Lightwater Valley have digital downloads of photos?

Also, we're going on Thursday 4th June and are considering the VIP pass - will it actually be worth it? Will an early-June school day be busy?

Re: Women dies at Six Flags Texas

Don't mean any offence by this, but... ....Some chick was on a video saying how the woman who died was no bigger than her, but she was pretty large. Its unfortunate. Fat peeps gotta get dem thrillz (I am a fat person), so of course it shouldn't happen, but it makes you wonder if the rider could have...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

The visual design and implementation of this ride is fantastic, I absolutely love it. It all looks very clean, crisp and sterile. Also chartreuse is my favourite colour and I love a chartreuse/yellow combination, so the entrance is like....possibly one of my favourite entrances ever. When the heck ...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Is it now safe to assume that The Smiler is going to be the best rollercoaster in the world?

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

15th May would kind of be a disaster for me. I arranged a trip between 5 different people, all in full time work (before the delays announced) for May. It is a huge huge huge pain to arrange everyone getting time off at the same time (from all over the country too) and we are headed to Alton on May ...

Re: Local Accommodation

Yeah, we definitely want to visit, spend some time and do some filming/photos at the Chained Oak. Always heard good things about it. I'll check prices.


Cheers for your help folks.

Re: Local Accommodation

That does look really nice. Only problem is there are five of us. Are there other apartment style accomodation near by?

Re: Local Accommodation

What is the best local accommodation to Thorpe Park? I have stayed at the Alverton Motel a couple of times and it was fantastic, getting a whole house - although I understand they underwent some changes last year? I hear the Chained Oak is very good. What are the best/other options? I would love to...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Oh god this is too good. Will definitely hit up Alton Towers at Halloween, and will be massively excited to check this out. Will a lot of track work happen over closed period, likely, or will some be done before closing? Apart from Thirteen what were the other recent rides/coasters construction per...

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

I always aim to make as many ridiculous, loud-enough-to-be-heard-by-others comments when in queues. I cannot think of any specific examples.

Re: POV Pests

I do it on every ride I can get away with. Especially the big ones. I take as many recording devices with me, just in case they get confiscated (two cameras, phone etc) and I like spreading vaseline on my hands just before riding. But nah, as mentioned there is generally no point in filming POVs as...
