Re: Alton Towers Ultimate Firework Spectacular

For me, I felt that overall this year wasn't quite as good as last year's show, however, that is purely personal preference and no reflection on the quality of the show provided by the Resort which was outstanding as always. I attended Saturday and Sunday and it did seem that Sunday was the better o...

Re: EnergyLandia

Just when you thought Energylandia might slow down after the addition of Zadra this year(which I understand was originally due for 2020), it has been confirmed that the park will be opening a whole new area in 2020. The new area will be called "Aqualantis" and will include a shop and resta...

Plopsaland De Panne

Over the weekend, Loopings have reported that Plopsaland De Panne in Belgium are building an extreme Mack Spinning Coaster for 2021. Plans indicate that the project is codenamed 'Robospinner' and will be 26 metres tall. The coaster will feature two launches as part of a layout which appears to inclu...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I know in the hotels I have checked in at around 10pm on one occasion. It may be worth contacting the Resort via direct message on either their Facebook or Twitter accounts to double check as with the reception for the Stargazing Pods being next to Tree Top Quest they may not staff it 24 hours like ...

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

This looks like another interesting addition for SeaWorld Orlando. My only slight concern would be with capacity given the design, but I'm not overly familiar with this coaster type so I could be wrong there. The park released a teaser video showing the new ride which Midway Mayhem has uploaded to Y...

Texas Stingray will feature a 100ft drop, 3, 379ft of track and travel at 55mph, making it the tallest, longest, and fastest wooden coaster in Texas. It looks like the rid...

Re: Busch Gardens Tampa

Here is the official announcement video for Iron Gwazi from Busch Gardens Tampa: oXKlFmAtP1s In some ways I do kind of like that the name still incorporates the word "Gwazi" as a nod to its predecessor. However what I don't get is the use of the Crocodile theme as Gwazi is meant to be a le...

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

Welcome to the forum Maverick2007 :) If you're in the London area then the easiest parks to do would be Thorpe Park or Chessington World of Adventures. If it's thrills and coasters you want then Thorpe Park will be your best option. Make sure you check the opening hours though as like Alton Towers, ...

Re: Six Flags Qiddiya

I'm honestly not sure what to make of this. Whilst some of the rides look impressive in theory, I very much doubt if some of them are even physically possible to be built. I know I'm not the only one to have notied that parts of Falcon's Flight just are not possible as they appear to go against the ...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

I have to agree with Justin in saying that I really can't see Lego being the theme of whatever is going into CCL. It simply wouldn't make any business sense for Merlin to put Lego into Alton Towers as if families can experience Lego at Alton Towers then they will be less likely to visit Legoland Win...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Food and Beverage

It would seem that the Resort have made improvements to their F&B quality recently if last weekend was anything to go by. I ate in The Secret Garden one evening and can honestly say it was probably the best meal I've ever had in there. I had the crispy beef and it was cooked perfectly, and taste...

Re: THE LEGO MOVIE World - 2021

This looks to be a good addition for Legoland provided it gets the go ahead. It'll provide a much needed refresh for an area that is looking very tired and needs some love. The LEGO Movie is huge, and will be for some time so it's a good choice to use for the area. The Flying Theatre will be another...

Re: Merlin General Discussion

I do wonder if Merlin are trialing a few possible options with passes. Thorpe have been offering a season fastrack pass for £400 this year, and now Legoland are offering this £650 VIP membership. It makes me think that maybe Merlin are trying to see if there is an audience for either individual park...

I can't say I'm surprised to see this announced, but at the same time I'm also a little surprised that it is such a high price point. Yes, there is a fair amount included, but given that the recently withdrawn VIP Merlin Annual Pass cost £725 for an individual pass (£625 for a family), and included ...
