Re: 2015 Scarefest

I'm so confused where the scare zones are going to be..

The Nox Infernus one doesn't look like it uses the previous zombies scare zone path on the map, and is there even any construction on the scare zone in forbidden valley, like i don't understand where it could even be!?

Re: Shrek's Far Far Away Adventure

Where was this information taken from?

It certainly would be annoying if they did actually refuse any premium passes til like 2 months after it opens (if it does open in July)... at least if they did strictly limited prebook tickets only. But not a lot we can do lol.

Re: Shrek's Far Far Away Adventure

So does anyone know the planned opening date as someone mentioned September, and a news report said July in time for summer... just that i'm planning to visit London end July / beginning of august anyway so am hoping; what's this about annual pass holders not being allowed in, or does it not matter ...

Re: Fright Nights

Hi, Thanks for getting back to me! It tends to work well at Disney parks (or at least did work well in the past) so I'll make sure I know what I'm doing and hopefully it'll be beneficial in some way. But thanks for your help! :) I was also worried about the RnR after using it back in June on the ro...

Re: What Element of a ride do you like the most?

I love the sensation of speed... So any ride really, but think that's why I enjoy Rita a lot as it keeps the speed well. Helixes/tight corners, Nemesis after the first inversion, and Nemesis Inferno right at the end - these 2 are my top 2 rides in the UK! Swarm deserves a mention as well as I starte...

New log flume themed to mutiny bay... Along with a pirate swinging ship over the lake, like at chessington or Drayton manor :)

Re: Official Oakwood Thread!

does anybody know if you can go on snake river falls by yourself... as I might be visiting in a group of 3, and obviously on some rides we're gonna be split up, but would be annoying if it's two people only, so was just wondering - also if any other rides would mean a group of 3 is split up, many th...

Re: At what age can you not handle thrill rides anymore?

My dad has had a heart attack and triple heart bypass, but still will go on the rides... it just takes him a while to recover after each ride... he did go as far as telling me he doesn't like rides anymore since his heart problems - he's now 52 - before his heart problems in 2010 he loved rides and ...

Re: SW8

it doesn't mean there will be a standup in KC... but considering it was considered, there's clearly the space for some sort of coaster, and wouldn't rule out seeing a coaster or something there - whether it's an SW or not is another thing! what's saying they don't build another SW for a considerable...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Since i've got an annual pass now which gives me ERT it's messed up my plan of getting round the park without the need for fast track... starting off at sonic spinball, then onto dark forest, accross the valley to forbidden valley, then work through gloomy wood, katanga canyon, mutiny bay, then hex ...

Does anybody know if it is expected to be in KC or just people want it to be in KC? I think it's just what people want... and i swear i read ages ago in this topic that john wardley had an idea many years ago for a standup coaster around KC, so if what i'm saying is true, then that's where people s...

Re: Alton Towers - Quick Questions

What time has the sky ride been opening this season? As I'm not lazy, but would much prefer to get that across from dark forest to forbidden valley rather than waking across the valley aha. Thanks.

someone else said how about build a B&M (or vekoma) family suspended coaster alongside/next to nemesis inferno where the MHFS used to be, and have nemesis inferno junior... they'd literally be mad not to!

Re: Accident at Terra Mitica

In regards to the terra mitica inferno accident... i'm not sure if true but from what i've read, it seems that the restraints had been modified in some way by the park which hadn't been signed off by the ride manufacturer, so with regards to the other zac spins looks like they should be open by now,...
