Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm

I was thinking about the wing, would it not just be cheaper to get one from a decomissioned plane rather than build a fake one from sratch?

Re: Coaster Corner's Future

well its highlight on the developement plan so they must have some idea for that site. Its actually a big area. I would say 5-6 years we will see something there. The next few developements will take place in:- 1)Flume site 2) Air Car park 3) BH tent 4) Coaster Corner 5) Valley Not sure in which ord...

Re: 2012: Nemesis - What Lies Beneath... Part 2

I have absolutely no objection to Alton choosing to open a ride later into the season at all; I'd much rather have a ride built within a comfortable time frame, than having things being rushed and bodged at the last minute, only to be left that way for the rest of the ride's operation. This way, th...

Re: Best Movie Soundstracks

I really cant stand it when big budget films grab the pop star of the moment and get the to sing some crappy song knowing it will go to no.1 thus promoting the film more. It just does nothing for me. Its kinda selling out

Re: Flats and coasters which have been an utter failure

At least the Sky Swats bring a different experience to the park. I personally find them more interesting than allot of flats but their greatest failure is the limited target market. Here's a real Failure: Vertigo at Walibi Belgium A really interesting concept which opened briefly before being compl...

Re: 2012: Nemesis - What Lies Beneath... Part 2

No it's not 'the nemesis', but if your referring to something relating to nemesis it is quite right to say "the nemesis (whatever)". You don't say "look at bus conductor", you say "look at the bus conductor". The 'the' above is relating to the theme, they are not calli...

Re: Air Tunnel

I really cant believe this topic is still going, its what, 5 years old?

I would say that IF SW7 is going to be built on AIR's carpark. this is the best chance we have of getting it done...but im not hopeful

Re: 2012: Nemesis - What Lies Beneath... Part 2

Please please please....its not the Nemesis, its just Nemesis. Really grinds my gears....

I think that really depends on SW7 though, as if Air was to 'detach' itself from FV it would make perfect sense.

Re: 2012: Nemesis - What Lies Beneath... Part 2

it would be interesting to get a close up of that. Do you think they use it to store machinery in etc during construction and then to save costs on moving it away, etc after construction just open it as a shop....seems the Merlin way to do things

Re: 2012: Nemesis - What Lies Beneath... Part 2

I hope that at some point love actors are used too. Even if it's just one in the middle of the queue like with Phantasiland and Mystery Castle Lol, can you just imagine that, dropping down a tower past some 'love actors' - This should be called 'Block Of Flats - The Ride' The story could be based a...
