Re: Kobra

Can't say Kobra has ever been a 'must do' purely based on the queue times it usually gets, it is a fun ride though, as long as I tie my hair up first :lol

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

My enthusiasm to get back to the park is almost entirely based on my need to get back on Wicker Man. I'll never forget the first day I rode, approaching the ride with the Welcome-Inn to the left, bunting strung around about , the weather was good and as cheesy as it is for the first time in such a l...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

I think streetmagix is probably referring to the sale that has not long finished on new passes. Although if I remember correctly is there not usually some kind of discount later in the year too, maybe May/June time? I could be making that up entirely, it is early :lol

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

As someone who uses fastrack, I am never worried if I still have a wait , fully understanding that the point of FT is that you ride quicker than the main queue but that you are not guaranteed no wait. I understand that view might not be the same if a person has forked out a great deal, for an entire...

Re: I'm a Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here

I thought the premise was interesting , but in reality it was a confusing attraction, not well acted after the media night and on every experience I had in there half of the effects didn't work as planned. It was also home to one of my more embarrassing theme park moments when my backpack, and subse...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

I find Nemmy so forceful these days that it's unpleasant for me anywhere further back than the middle! Especially if it's later than about mid day. I generally now will only ride if I am with people who will wait for the front, I really love seeing everything whip past and find that the most enjoyab...

Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

Other than Wicker Man, Thirteen is my favourite ride in the park, it's a great deal of fun and for some reason, one I really don't mind queueing for. The baggage situation has slowed things down slightly but I can't say I noticed a MASSIVE decrease in throughput on the days I visited last year if I'...

Re: Rita - General Discussion

I'm really struggling with Rita these days! I don't know if that's just a side effect of getting old though :lol I find the ride to be increasingly quite jolty and uncomfortable with each passing season, although I know not everyone agrees with this, I think it partly depends on the conditions when ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

If it was open over winter it would certainly tempt me to make an effort to make it over there , previously there's been nothing to make the trip that worthwhile.

Re: Blackpool Central - 2019-2029

This plan sounds very impressive and very ambitious, I think I'll reserve judgement for a little while longer. Something else to do in Blackpool when the weather is poor can't be a bad thing. It has however given me more to add to my reading list, as the novels the attractions are based upon sound i...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

I really really hope that next season, Merlin realise that Alton need and deserve a bigger budget to operate things better. I would hope that they have cut things back to the point where no more can be cut, and that they realise how much of an impact it is having on guest experience. People want to ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

For the shortest queues (relatively) then the first week or so of Scarefest is probably your best bet, though the whole event will still draw a good crowd. However I have to agree with Justin, if you can then the Scarefest Friday into Fireworks Saturday atmosphere should be pretty awesome, and even ...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Seeing so many varying opinions on Icon is really interesting. I found the ride to be slightly underwhelming, it's no doubt a great addition to the UK coaster line up and I'm really pleased that Blackpool are the ones to have built this. I think that unfortunately I was always going to compare Icon ...
