Re: Strange Theme Park Related Fears!

I've never ever gone on a rollercoaster worried something bad might happen with the except of the Wild Mouse type coasters where at the top you get swing round corners when it looks like you're about to go off the edge. That gets me every time.

Re: The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure

The section with the fox smelled rancid but it was supposed too.
Incredibly impressed with this ride - they've done a very good job. Chessington has some really well themed attractions.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Very excited for this. Seems a ride with quite a lot of planning. Nice for a lot of hype for something that is not a coaster

Also, about the Rules, some are quite odd. 1 & 2: Fight Club. Duh... 3: A possibility of the group being split up. Either you have the choice or you are forced to split up and this is to make it feel as if you're breaking the rules, or are unsafe. Or more likely is it that we will be moving aro...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Whilst we can all agree this is a terrible thing that is happened, I imagine the majority of people who would never ride Smiler again would be none enthusiasts anyway. So not much loss.
