Re: Pleasure Beach Blackpool - Nickelodeon Land 2011

You only got on THREE rides at PBB? How long were you there? You hear that sort of horror story about Towers during school trip season but I'd never expect it of PBB. We got to the park at 10am, But were made to sit on the bus by park staff untill 11.30, Then we had another hour of waiting to get w...

Re: Alton or Drayton 2011

Towers for me, Main reason is the coasters! Whenever I go to a park its all about the coasters! If I get chance to go on a flat I will. Last year I went to thorpe for the 1st time, All I did was ride the coasters and I was more than happy with that...

So for this thread Its Alton every single time

Re: Anerican Adventure's Next Coaster

NUCLEAR families will be welcome. A plan has been hatched to create a theme park with outdoor water slides and adventure courses on the site of one of Scotland's decommissioned atomic power stations. Hunterston A, on a scenic stretch of the North Ayrshire coast, was shut down in 1990 with "defu...

Why any park would build a copy of air is beyond me. I don't think Alton would have built air as we know it unless they had to.



I agree 100%, the 1st time i rode Air I wanted it to be so much better than it was! Its a ok ride but theres much better flying coasters out there now.
