Re: English Football 2011/2012

After all the attention seeking Hazard has done, he announced recently on twitter that he will sign for the champions league winners, Chelsea
He's deemed to be the next/new Messi.
Thoughts? (I couldn't care less to be honest)

Re: Drayton Manor 2012 Season

People have already said it before, but removing Pirate Adventure is a very VERY bad idea. Thomas Land is very popular yes but with the right attention PA could become as popular as TL is to the kids! The U.K needs a dark ride that can challenge the likes of the U.S and globally. Bad move Drayton. S...

Re: TTF Euro Coaster Poll 2011-12: THE RESULTS!

Thanks for running the poll again this year Dan and co.  :D

I think adding the Alton Towers rides to the poll would totally ruin it, its great to get to know the other great rides around europe and to see how they compare with eachother.

Re: PortAventura 2012: "Shambhala" B&M Mega Coaster

It's a matter of opinion Astwodan, in my opinion Furious Baco IS easily a top coaster...

Re: TTF Euro Coaster Poll 2011-12: Semi Final 2: VOTE NOW!

There seems to be a very mixed opinion on which coasters are worth top 5 in this group, and i shall add to this: 1: Dragon Khan - I simply love this ride, voted it all the way and including the final last year and a ride last summer didnt seem to change that vote so i will still continue to vote for...

May i ask your reasons for putting FVN last? To me, it just seems like the perfect coaster when you put into account the themeing, thrill elements and layout?

(Yes i know its a eurofighter...  :P)

Ahh, the tagada. The most contreversial fairground ride out there, they are death traps!? Why do people even ride those things?!

To be injured or not to be injured, that is the question...  :P

Re: 250-room hotel planned for West Midlands Safari Park

^Average? the theme park on site is terrible, albeit a good collection of rides however they are poor, especially the ghost train attempt.

They really dont need a hotel, they need major investment in their amusmant park area! Thats just my opinion however...

Re: TTF Euro Coaster Poll 2011-12: Round 1, Group 10: Voting Over

Besides the fact that it is a traditional b&m I still feel that it should not of progressed due to its rather generic layout. But to be fair to it, it had rather weak competition aside from the top 2...

Re: TTF Euro Coaster Poll 2011-12: ROUND 1, GROUP 7: VOTE NOW!

My results are as follows, again controversial, especially first place, judging by the shear mass of hate for this ride... 1. Furious Baco: Loved this ride. Rough yes, but i dont mind a bit of roughness. PA fanboyism just like you EP fanboys i guess. Great ride. Good launch aswell, loved the trains....

Re: Rainbow Magicland: General Discussion

I honestly thought this park was just going to literally die in the next few years due to lack of investment because of such a heavy investment in the first year but i am proven wrong! Hurrah!

The future looks good for this park,  can not wait to visit next year.  :D
