Re: Dreamland Heritage Park Margate megathread

I saw that the other day and was also really pleased to hear they were using the wood!

The Economist have recently published an interesting article regarding the development, highlighting how Disneyland Paris' losses and PortAventura's falling profits could make it difficult for the park to be successful. Bumpy rides ahead A surprising investment boom for an industry still not over th...

Thorpe Park have revealed their 2014 advert featuring Angry Birds Land: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DknGVRWLLhg It certainly highlights the more family friendly marketing they have been aiming towards recently, and has a similar theme to the new map (i.e. island style with exaggerated heights :P...

Re: Dreamland Heritage Park Margate megathread

Having been absent for a while, I hope everyone saw Dreamland on the news :) The video can be seen here and the relevant article here. It is brilliant to see how it is all progressing :D I may be getting a bit over-enthusiastic about this, but I am starting to get too excited to re-live my childhood!

Re: Proposed Paramount Park in Kent

It's an interesting proposal and I don't think it would hinder the plans for the Paramount Park, as the locations are so close to one another, it could benefit from more funding in this area.

This gives you a rough idea of their locations :P

Re: Bad weather, snow, possible flooding at Alton Towers?

Since Alton Towers isn't near the sea, I don't really see the resort flooding. The majority of the flooding in the UK right now is due to rising river/lake levels as a result of high amounts of rainfall. This has led to the water table being at record levels, which results in ground flooding as the...

Re: Nemesis queue line pics needed

Hi Cobby - to post an image on the forum you need to upload it to an image hosting website, e.g. TinyPic, Photobucket, Flickr etc. I use TinyPic the most as you don't need to sign up to use it.
