Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

I'm actually okay that Wallace and Gromit pulled out, think the Blackpool ride is enough for me :lol

Let's hope it's just an area that can be walked through with shops and such, and not a main area with rides..

Although this is still good news for the park, let's hope things start moving now.

Re: SW9

The area behind Cloud Cuckoo Land is rather large for a new themed area, however this area is used for storage and other mishaps currently. A flat ride or 2 with an addition of a coaster, (being SW9), could be a likely opportunity.. however, with a new theme park opening in Sheffield soon, and with ...

Re: Gulliver's Valley Resort - Sheffield

I'm not gonna lie, I'm getting big vibes from American Adventure in 2 of those pictures.. might just be me.

It's great to finally see something of it, will be good to see the park next year!

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

So, has there been any new additions to the ride? Specifically the maintenance shed section.. just curious is all. Any confirmation that may be a yes or no would be appreciated :) In a word, no. There have been no modifications to the ride over the closed season. The maintenance shed is exactly the...

I genuinely thought they were in some form of farm for those pictures :|

Looks like it could be fun, but for £10 I think I'll pass..

Emm.. and the original audio, and signage around the area don't forget!

Awaiting the season "Halfway Corrected" is brought back.

Re: Heide Park

Not gonna lie.. the marketing art looks way better than the actual structure itself.. reminds me of the face used on Hex at Alton Towers..

Still good though! Just not the same as intended I think.

As someone who enjoys a bit of cosplay every now and again, I can say that the Fortnite characters are pretty good I guess.. Sonic could be a lot better.. but what in the world is that Mario and Luigi costumes.. Literally looks like they have gone to the party store 'LuvUBabes' and got a cheap outfi...

Re: Project 2020

Where in that FAQ did it state they have no major plans in the next couple of years?

I can only see the Long Term Development Plan, if that is what you are referencing?

Re: Project 2020

With Robin Hood at Walibi Holland being converted to RMC.. Merlin have to realise that with the success of Wicker Man for one, and with the re-opening of Colossus at Heide Park (is that right?) Then either another GCI in Loggers place, or to really up the game, RMC. With the competition of other par...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I haven’t said anything negative about others enjoying the ride. Everything I have said is my own personal opinion :) If people enjoy than they enjoy it. I am not the sort of person to hate on someone because they like something I don’t and if it came across like that than I apologise :) I'm sorry ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

The fact the ride has a brilliant soundtrack, a great backstory, and of course a layout filled with inversions in a tight area.. The ride may be run down and in need of a good clean and repairs. But to say the ride hasn't got a good aspect is a bit harsh :-k

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

I don’t think Junior Drop Towers would really fit into Forbidden Valley or X Sector.. too different in ride types, and thrill factor. As FV and XS are known to be thrill areas.. if anything we could see one tower in CBeebies Land, and one tower to replace the current frog hopper. I strongly think th...

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

The train from London to Hogsmeade was inspired and far better than I would have thought, having a third Potter land would undermine it a bit, especially as there's no way of them doing another sort of 'journey' like that.   A third potter land put putting too many eggs in one basket, spreading the...
