Hell, I'd be happy with a floorless sitdown B&M.


Me too tbh, but I highly doubt it as the gp would see it too similar to the smiler I think.

Let's not forget that Heide Park (another Merlin park in a country with a very similar climate) removed their flume for Flug Der Damonen - I don't see many saying "oh I wish we had the flume back" now! ;)


No but BPB removed their flume for Infusion and I'd rather the flume tbh[emoji6]

Re: SW8

The only real pointer towards B&M is on the old pirate posters (the coaster that was delayed for The Smiler) it said "from his latest victory in Switzerland". B&M are Swiss right? Hmmmm[emoji848]

Re: SW8

What is that Walibi are getting? That's a new Rollercoaster incorporating water I believe. Maybe some kind of spin on that?

Re: What theme park

Europa is good all round, i'm sure you've heard, but staying in Germany Heide Park is pretty good too! Liseberg and Gardaland are pretty good and there's obviously others like Phantasialand, Efteling, Holiday Park, Tayto Park and Mirabilandia. These are mostly for thrills, atmosphere and overall par...

Re: Project 2017- Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Nick Thompson has confirmed 2016 is focused on infrastructure and in 2017 (around may) a huge new project will open as one of in his words 'the most exciting rides in the world.

Re: Project 2017- Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Tbh id be fine with another thrill flat as BPB need more than just Skyforce and TIB. Maybe a Top Scan IF it was ran to full potential example: Whizzer NOT Samurai.

Re: Which water ride will be removed first?

Flume, just really needs to go, but I think I would like to see a water coaster replacing it as then small kids wouldn't have anything that is reasonably thrilling for them :) I think you're right but do you remember before 2004 before the sponsor, it had dinosaurs back then it was a big ride but I...

Re: Which Flat Would You Like Removed First?

You see, everyone hates submission and I completely understand why. But submission will always have a place in my heart as it was the first EVER thrill ride I went on (when I had just turned 7), and honestly how many of you don't have a soft spot for the first thrill ride you went on. It kick start...
