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...

Re: Gulliver's Valley Resort - Sheffield

So when is this theme park meant to start construction or is it already in construction?

Not heard anything about it :roll:

Re: Project 2020

I do believe that they are keeping this project under wraps.. this is the next coaster in 6 years.. so the secrecy will be there.. and I do believe when this ride unveils itself, the hype will be enormous!

Mark my words..

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

I’m quite certain that it has been said that the current JP area in IoA is being rethemed to Jurassic World when the new coaster is installed.

Taron :)

Did someone sell them the promise of a 4D coaster?


Whoops, I thought that was Mack.. that’s embarrassing.

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Be gone with it.. Personally, the Galactica theme is fantastic for the ride to work with, but more theming elements should be added to enhance the area further. Such as near misses, tunnel retheme to match what was on the VR with lighting. Apart from that the ride is fine and still packs somewhat of...

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

That’s brilliant!!! Well done Colchester Zoo for recognising that Vapers are trying to make a healthier choice and don’t want to inhale smoke, especially not somebody else’s. As good as that is, I’d personally want the vaping area a good 15-30 feet away from the smoking area, as you’d still be able...

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

As good as that is, I’d personally want the vaping area a good 15-30 feet away from the smoking area, as you’d still be able to smell the smoke from there on a not so breezy day.

But it’s still better than what AT and other Merlin parks offer.

Re: SW9

Rita should go, and invest in a new Intamin Blitz coaster with 3 launchs, utilising the area Rita currently uses, and where UG Swinger and BoneShaker used to be.. this could potentially be a pretty long and well themed ride for Dark Forest.

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

No ones opinions are incorrect or correct as they are opinions and never ever be worried about sharing it @nicky.borrill. Smoking and Vaping is a high 'trigger' for many people and it gets conversation happening. Whilst I don't think vapers should be made to use the smoking areas, I do feel that th...

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

Those ‘cloud chasers’ have a lot to answer for. Before sub ohming, and cloud chasers, most indoor places allowed vaping, it was inoffensive and didn’t cause anybody any bother. Then some folk started going too far, blowing out giant plumes of thick, sweet smelling, vapour and all hell broke loose. ...

Those festoon led lights don’t look great in the day do they? But they do look georgeous at night IMO  I’m a vaper, I don’t do it in queue lines, I sometimes have a quick suck, not enough to blow anything out, but that’s it... However, I do not use the designated smoking areas either. I use e cigar...
