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

I like the final drop/inversion on Saw the most. If you close your eyes then you get a real rush of adrenaline due to the blocks not slowing you down much before the drop ;)

Re: Will Merlin buy Drayton Manor Theme Park?

It would be a good investment and would pay back soon. It's not too close to towers and has a great lineup. If Merlin rented it for free for a day and sent 10000 painters in, I'd be happy :D

Re: Legoland Windsor - The Past

It was the best ride they had i mean they have like 2 rollercoasters and it was their best attraction. But NO they replace it with a Miniland. Why would people prefer to look at a Star Wars Lego thing instead of a ride. They could even of Star Wars themed it. It would kill the ride but at least it w...

Re: Should Thorpe Park Add Single Rider Queues?

Stealth should get it reintroduced, along with the across coasters; saw and nemesis inferno. Rush could do with one, maybe detonator and prehaps samurai. Generally if it slows samurai down it will be useless as it already takes ages to load.

Re: If you had to, which ride would you remove?

The whole ride is on stilts behind the hill which basically means it cannot be themed. A water coaster with a underwater tunnel could go there though :)

Re: Gloomy Wood Future

I'd really like to see a Arrow swinging coaster (like Vampire) along side Duel, if somehow AT could fit them both I wish arrow was still around, well we have vekoma I guess :) I think that the Stonehenge UFO ride idea is cool aswell. Maybe a Twister ride around a tree as middle or a low down Condor...

Re: Stealth Roll Backs

I imagine it happens more than once a week, it's not something major that people say about. Also when they happen there's only a very small chance someone will report it on here.

Re: What Was Nemesis Like When It First Opened?

Well for starters, it wasn't actually that busy the first day it opened. We managed three rides on it, with queues of 20-30 mins all day. And we still managed to do all the other rides in the park that we wanted to. I think it was a different story for its official opening, though. I remember that ...

Re: Submission Replacement

Flamingoland's sky flyer is really similar. Energizers are out of production i believe and the ones left are in Mexico. Pandemonium could be ok. The rack would be better than energizer. I think they should get Drayton Manors Pandemonium though as its a very fun ride, that's around the same size. Als...

Re: Best ride at Legoland?

Dragon probs then Old Jungle coaster. Wave riders looks fun also if it has to be a ride then ROCKET RACERS FTW!! Best ride and they replaced with a Lego Miniland. Kids get bored with Miniland, they prefer a ride!!

Re: When do you think rides will go?

I think Air won't stay as long as the others because other flying coasters will beat this awesome ride. Look at Manta and other great Flyers in the US.

Because everyone goes to the USA to ride a similar ride to air..... It's unique for the UK ;)
