Re: Flamingo Land

It's been a while since any new update on the new coaster, any chance anyone has new info or pictures? Anything at all.

Re: Drayton Manor

A day or 2 old, but news none the less.. mixed feelings about this to be honest. Shame to see it go.

Re: Abandoned

Abandoned toilets?

I've walked through the gardens plenty of times and never found the toilets.. will definitely need to try and find it this season coming!

Re: The Future of RITA..

Although I do agree that Th13teen is somewhat boring, front row can have some decent speed and whip arounds.. as for the interior, I love to hear people's reactions, especially 1st time riders.

Re: The Future of RITA..

What's interesting is that if it were an Intamin Blitz.. it wouldn't necessarily be the same model as 'Taron' for example.. as that is the older model of the coaster I believe. (Check that). Not that there is anything wrong with Intamin's new model.. It would be interesting to see Towers invest in a...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Isn't the ride 20 years old next year?
Although I do think it's about time the ride had a major improvement to it, (although it is one of the best water rides personally), I am going to miss riding this next year.. oh well, as long as they don't follow Loggers Leaps fate then by all means, happy!

Re: Alton Towers Ultimate Firework Spectacular

Apparently a fire broke out yesterday due to a rogue firework.. does anyone know anything about this who was there? the media seem to be making it sound a lot worse than it actually was. Regardless, what a way to almost end a season :lol Part of a tree caught alight from fireworks debris, resulting...

Re: Busch Gardens Tampa

As good as the facts about the ride are, and the name is pretty decent.. why on earth is it themed to a crocodile? Gwazi.. a Tiger/Lion Hybrid.. now a crocodile?? I'm confused with this choice, but looks good none the less :lol

Re: Rides & Attractions

I would assume the park wants to knock the opening out the park with its offerings of rides.. So I agree with a woodie agree with a launched coaster themed to Star Trek. I'd say a family coaster would be something like a new vekoma style, or new intamin. And the 4th.. would hopefully be a B&M Hy...

Re: Exposé Claims Disney Attempt to Control Online Fan Communities and Shareholders

And some people believe Bob Iger has done a better job for Disney than Walt Disney himself..

Time will tell if this is true or not.. As much as I don't want this to be true. I also do to expose the corrupt nature of Disney that employees have been stating for years.

Re: Exposé Claims Disney Attempt to Control Online Fan Communities and Shareholders

Disney really needs to be careful. Bob Iger needs to watch his back. The perverbial storm is approaching fast. Been keeping up to date with Disney mishaps with regards to Star Wars.. the future doesn't look good at all. With rumoured plans of Galaxy's Edge turning into an Aladdin themed area if the ...

That ride actually fits the layout of the proposed details. Think you hit the nail on the head with that one.

I suspect it's neither. The term bear with us is the correct spelling. :)

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I saw several news companies bring up the 2015 incident again, with some saying the crash happened at 90mph which is very impressive seeing as we don't have a coaster in the UK that reaches that speed! During the investigation after the incident, it was calculated that the force of the crash was eq...

Re: Kankaria Adventure Park

"Completely avoidable" is a strong word to use considering we don't know anything of what's happened, obviously mechanical failure looking at the video, however, till a official report is released stating the cause of failure it's all just guess work.  Check out the park, it l...

Kankaria Adventure Park

RIDE INCIDENT Well.. it comes just a few weeks after the ride in Uzbekistan accident occured. Now a similar attraction has had the same accident, with 2 dead and 29 people reportedly taken to hospital. Footage is shocking, and may be disturbing for some viewers. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/950806...
