Re: Galactica - General Discussion

After watching the video Chris posted was about to ask why they'd removed everything from the VR side of things, thought initially due to Covid-19 but thought stripping all the equipment off the trains if they plan to re-use it at some point was a bit ott. Been years since I've been so glad they rem...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Kinda surprised it's taken them this long to announce postponement with a place like Alton Towers like football stadiums attracting people from all corners of the country.

Re: EnergyLandia

The coaster looks decent but not sure how they can label it a wooden coaster in promotional material.

Also the advert looks very cheap: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24agMjOA0oo

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

It looks like I booked my annual visit just in time as I pre-booked Thursday at the now old price of £16!

Re: Ride Op - Thrill Ride Simulator

Bought it to give it a go, it gives a tiny bit of amusement in the initial learning curve. Letting the guests board, locking restraints, starting the ride & altering the cycle of some of the more thrilling rides is fun but thats it. Without a large variety of operating rides it will get old quick.

Ride Op - Thrill Ride Simulator

Doesn't look like it'll provide much entertainment or gameplay but interesting if you fancy the Op side of flat rides.

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Towers Ruins Projections All day until late The Towers Gothic ruins are rumoured to be home to a number of supernatural forces – do you get the feeling somebody’s watching from the windows? This is freaky because I could of sworn I got a pic of what looked like someone looking down from one of the ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Having an Alton Towers Annual Pass which excludes most of October, and having this closed Tuesdays/Wednesdays (which are my only days off), means I've probably done my last trip of the season and I didn't even know it at the time :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It's not just Wicker Man that has that 'issue' with the chain lift, a fair few GCI's have a strange rocking motion from time to time. I wouldn't think it's anything to be concerned about.  One thing that was mentioned in the presentation was some slight changes have been made in the last couple of ...

Re: Adventure Island

Re: Drayton Manor

Your missing Pandemonium from your list :D Mine would have to be:

1. Maelstrom
2. Pandemonium
3. Apocalypse Stand Up
4. G-Force (simply because the lift hill is unique to the country)
5. Stormforce 10

How old does that make everyone feel.

Can't resist a ride on The Smiler, the rickety mass entanglement of steel that it is.

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I do believe this will become the best ride in the UK. It looks incredible, can't wait to head over this spring. I haven't set a date to go up but glad people who have ridden it feel the same. It stood out from all other UK coasters and looks like an all round crowd pleaser. Now we'll just have to ...

Re: Going to Towers alone...

Would love to make a solo trip to Towers one day, just to see how it is with no one else! It's nice to be with people but it's nice also not to be. My solo trips are blissful, it's my day I go wherever I want, take however long I want, avoid certain rides if I want. I'm actually heading for a solo ...
