Re: Chessington - General Discussion

So it looks like the app has been updated and the Gruffalo attractions have been added but sadly the map hasn't been updated to show the Adventure Tree and still shows the carousel still in place.

Re: Chessington - General Discussion

Hi does anyone know how busy it will be on March the 23rd? I think I'm just missing the half term holidays but I'm not sure.

Re: Visiting with luggage

One of these these so not the smallest but if need be its something that wouldn't be such a huge pain to move around.

Re: Chessington - General Discussion

Just a follow up post I visited Chessington on the 15th and I have to say I fond it to be the best themed theme parks I have been to. Roller coasters I loved vampire and I ended up doing it about 5 times that day it's my first arrow even if it has vekoma trains. Dragons fury I found to be fun and ha...

Re: Chessington - General Discussion

Thanks for both of your prompt responses I have never done a huss topspin so I will definitely check out rameses revenge. This will be my first solo visit to a park so I'm not sure what to expect I would like to get bubble works whilst I'm there just because it's a historic ride but I'm not sure how...

Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

I had actually forgotten about detonator. I gusset it would count more as an experience than a drop tower but your right it would be redundant next to detonator.

Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

Just a thought I had but seeing as lego land have been denied there indoor drop tower do you think that merlin have simply decided to move it to thorpe instead? It could work with a saw theme.

Re: What did you ride on your first visit?

Air was my first big coaster and my first coaster with inversions and was shortly followed by nemesis. My friends w...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

oh wow I probably thought of it as a effect and to be honest I've never stuck around in the shop to see the photos. May get one next time as dual doesn't seam to have much in the way of merchandise.
