Re: Most Anticipated Movies of 2012

Another shot of the fictional Lakeside Amusement park  (Cherry beach) from the new Silent Hill movie ... The whole place is so eerie and the pictures in my previous post lead me to question if a park could use this idea to create a spooky land and something a bit different from your haunted hou...

Re: Slammer falling to pieces?

Poor old Slammer.. Its a classic case of be careful what you wish for. Go back to the year or two before it opened and enthusiasts were crying out for an S&S Sky Swat there was plenty of call for one. It doesnt matter how good a ride is when it has so much down time like the early years of Samur...

Re: Most Anticipated Movies of 2012

1. Silent Hill Revelations ..... The first movie by Christopher Gans was one of the best game to movie adaptations to hit the big screen. I am normally not a fan of movie game crossovers because there is too much story in a game to put in 2 hour film. Silent hill   took the music straight out o...

Re: Gold Reef City South Africa Report

Hey dudes big thank you for the feedback and to those that have PM'd me too. Diogo. TOT doesn't disapoint at all but I fear that some of the younger enthusiasts would be too keen to compare with a eurofighter and maybe not get the enjoyment I did. But if you can get there dude it really is worth it....

Re: All time favourite flat ride

Am I the only one who thinks Topscans are overrated? :? They are good, but personally I prefer other ride types. Totally agree with that.. Topscans can be very good my best ride on one being Funderland when at Bournemouth it was being run on manual mode. They just get too hyped up dudes.  Plus...

Re: Sonic Spinball After 2013

I like Spinball as a ride and would agree with a lot of people that it is suprising fun and a tad underrated. Its most likely going to stay for a while and probably go through another change depending on how Sonic as a brand does throughout the world i.e. new games , console or cartoon.. In my perso...

Cant believe I have missed this off my list but I think soundtrack of the year at least goes to SENNA ... Antonio Pinto's soundtrack has to be up there. It complemented the movie so well and was probably a combining factor in seeing this movie 3 times in 2 weeks and crying all 3 times.. Special ment...

^ Good man Ritadz I was very pleased with how we defended last night up until Djourou came on (Him and Song combining for the Dortmund goal). Its a great sign we can mix it with the physical sides now. In the first half Dortmund were amazing at hunting us down and there were some crunching tackles f...

That is great news dude. I have some old farnborough airshow vhs videos and when they developed the olympus engines they showed the power of it by putting one underneath a Vulcun bomber for tests. After take off the vulcan came past with its 4 engines shut off and running on just 1 olympus engine it...

Re: Best Alton Towers Dark Ride

It is all about HEX , its just perfect of example of putting a triangle in a triangle shape hole "It just fits !!"
Really wish they would gut Duel and put in something new really frightenting, fun and more fitting.. Its almost 10 years since the retheme. Time to up the quality a bit..
