Fireworks display fanfare 90’s

had a bit of a flashback earlier to the fireworks displays of the 90’s and I remember a piece of music that the park would use most years at the start of the display. Does anybody remember this also or what it was? I remember it being pretty heavy on the trumpets.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Re: Ride pin badges

I've been collecting the pin badges since the 90's so always on the look out for new ones  :) my favourite is the original Nemesis logo one from 94! I think that list is correct just the Ice Age and Resort badge you missed off. I haven't been yet this season so always on the look out for more ...

Had a good search today & yesterday on park but didn't see any ATR as that'd be a good one to have. could have sworn I saw a 'ministry of joy' one today as well. I have a moj/smiler one :moj as far as I know these are staff only but they may well have started selling them as smiler merchandise....
