Re: RCT3: Nightfalls Stuff

Whoah... I just watched the Portal video for the first time. The first thing to say is that the presentation of your videos (including the new Driving School one) is brilliant. Secondly. The Portal set looks absolutely immense. Wow. I've long been thinking of making Portal: The Ride, but never thoug...

Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

Thank you so much Dan! Really appreciate the work you've put into this, it's fantastic. So, using your great information we've got to the park! :D But once there, do you have any recommendations about an order to do the park in - to avoid the biggest queues etc, get the most out of our days and expe...

Re: Off Peak Closure of SkyRide and Other Cuts

If they are of the opinion that they should bleed every asset dry then we will see more cutbacks. This is true, but I can't see it being likely. I think your hope about "if they understand happy customers = more profit" is the more likely outcome, or at least, I hope so too. Surely it com...

Re: Off Peak Closure of SkyRide and Other Cuts

The big problem with Merlin which does seem to be overlooked is the level of debt. In 2011 it was £1,094.1m In 2012 it is £1,209m So that makes Merlin Entertainments 1 Billion in debt... 1 BILLION IN DEBT...  Basically the operating profits are not enough to pay the interest on the debt, so th...

Re: Off Peak Closure of SkyRide and Other Cuts

I know a lot of people on here really don't like LWV or their Facebook statuses, but can we refrain from this indignant, PBE-style remarks which are no better? We know LWV is a worse park, we know it has failings, we know that their level of investment is far lower than Alton's, we know the infrastr...

Re: RCT3 ~Aswell Gardens~

This is looking much better - I can definitely see you improving. Dragon Power (which has an ace name!) has a very unique layout and looks like lots of fun. Have you thought about maybe widening the paths, and adding fences around them or around the roller coasters? And maybe trying pathcovers? I th...

Re: Dingerbell's Coasters

I love these coasters, they're insane! My favourite is Vicious Wolf, it looks great fun and I like the integration into the landscape. I think the newest one is a bit undersupported, or rather the supports don't look like they're quite in the right place. For example, the inversion directly after th...

Re: Willowside Park

This is looking great! Really nice pathwork, and the supporting of Grand Splash is really well done.

I have to say, I love the picture of Willow Walk! The foliage is great!

Re: Malibu Park Resort

I love the effort you put into this. In particular, as before, your billboards are fantastic and really add to the theming. The red, white and black theming throughout the Jukebox Rally area also works really well. Looking forward to the new developments! Edit - if I could add something, it would be...

Re: Lightwater Valley: 2013 developments

It's in a great place really. If you were planning a relatively inexpensive family break, you could spend a day at LWV, stroll to North Stainley for an evening meal in a pub, spend a day walking in the dales, spend a day visiting Harrogate or York or Ripon, spend a day visiting a castle in Middleham...

Re: Fresh Water Park - 10/05/2012

I really like what you've done in the last update with the coaster and the tower interacting. However, I think there is an over-reliance on the Bird House set, particularly at the entrance. It does stand alone very well, but to prevent repetition I think it would be good to try and incorporate other...

Re: Ride accidents 2012

Weird accident at Shijiazhuang Botanical Garden park in China, as a coaster train seems to separate halfway round the track. The coaster was built in 2005 by Hebei Metallurgical Equipment (yeah, they sound legit). Oh...oh no. I knew I recognised that name. It beggars belief, but Hebei are the compa...
