Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

It's not that it's not done properly, it's just that it seems broken already after half a season. First ride of the day the animations were stuttering a bit but by the second ride of the day the projection mapping was completely frozen.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Yep, I can also confirm it was open today. There was one minor breakdown for about 15 minutes, but then again reliable old blivvy broke down too. It seems the projection mapping inside the station has kind of given up though...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

To be honest it wouldn't surprise me if it was open tomorrow or Wednesday since a whole misalignment of the track when the bolt popped out only shut it for four days, and let's be honest that situation could have been way more serious if a car had been going round that area of track at the precise m...

That is very impressive :) I've made a few origami objects myself... But I can't share them because they ain't family friendly (yes, I'm a sad case)

Do coasters count? Because it's only them and the theming attached that I really go to the towers for :P

Anyone else find the name a bit ironic? Sounds like you have to be a hero to ride it :?

Re: TowersTimes v3.0

Don't know if this has been mentioned already but I would like an 'unthank' feature as I have accidentally pressed thanks in a few embarrassing situations in which I had no intention of doing so.

The future of knightmare

Driving back from Scotland this morning, I couldn't help but notice that knightmare is still at the now closed camelot when I drove past. I know that several of the attractions have been re located to other parks including oakwood, pleasureland southport,gulliver's world and skyline park but knightm...

Re: BPB - losing appeal?

I think part of the problem now is blackpool itself, with most people seeing it as a British version of bennidorm. Take for example the bad press they've been getting for the beaches. That alone will repel visitors as who wants to swim in dirty water. Plus there is the view (which is in a way correc...

Re: Duel Replacement?

I really don't think the concept of the good old fashioned haunted house should be messed with. Every park needs one and even if duel has got guns etc it is still very much a traditional haunted house. Remember duel is good for families as it is and it might not be if it was to become a coaster. Wha...

Re: BPB - losing appeal?

Well put it this way... The last coaster they built was infusion and even still that had already been open since 1999 at pleasure land southport, so because of the age of the rides they're going to feel a bit rough. Also, note the fact that they are next to the sea and so they're not going to age we...
