Re: Do you yearn for something big thats not a rollercoaster

So would I! And I feel we can learn from it; Always create an impressive,well themed exterior. The ride was good, no doubt about it - I've read that people would burst into spontanious applause at the end.

Did you go on it? Its a treasured memory of mine.

Do you yearn for something big thats not a rollercoaster

Something that will restore the magic, an attraction full of innovation and brand new effects? Ok so we have the 3D cinema but to be honest, though I reckon its fun for the kids, this is old technology. Back in the day a 3D cinema was amazing, but in this day and age its a backward step. We had a 4D...

Re: The Future Of Th13teen

I love Th13teen! The only thing I think I'd change would be the electric orb in the queueing area The electric orb? Is that what they are calling it now lol. Its a Tesla coil. I think they should replace the plexiglass with actuall glass as its clearer(I think its plexiglass anyway). 1 time I went,...

Re: New Book! - Smoke and Mirrors: The Haunted House of Alto

I think he's taken it down for the sake of selling the book - makes sense, and while its not desirable to pay for something that was once free I imagine theres a lot of extra stuff in the book and he has put a lot of effort into the site and probably book. Maybe he'll put the site back up after a wh...

Re: Do you think The Height(tree line) Rule is Correct?

The restrictions have bought about some cool qualities in rides like the Oblivion hole and quarry that Nemesis is in. Imagine how it would detract from themeing if these coasters were all above ground. At the same time I think its a bit bossy and old fasioned to imply that coasters are a monstrosity...

Re: Why Thirteen is the best thing in the past decade.

Its a good ride, one of my favourites but to determine whether its succesful you have to look at the figures - I have no idea what they are but it always seems to have some queue. Like you say its the "innovation" that makes it for me, the inventive steps and the fact you have themeing, sm...

Re: Two Smiler trains collide -- BREAKING

I really hope the 4 people hurt will be ok. In the metro they are described as having "serious leg injuries" which though painful, I hope is the only injuries they have. I hope the rumor about one person dying isn't true.

What would you talk about? First thing I'd want to ask is; Are you a cat or a dog person? (I'd want to humanize him basically) :D Then I would ask him what music he likes, which artists etc. I think I would then ask him....No TELL, him to eat all his vegetables and salads and supliments cause we nee...

Re: How about a dark ride based on Mary K Baxter's book?

Aww I dont think so Emporium. Duel still has some great bits, like the tilted room and trommel and I'm never one for bulldozing good rides.

Whether you believe it or not, the images Baxter portrays are absolutely horrifying. Skeletons in multiple...
