Re: The World of David Walliams - New for 2020

The lack of posts in this thread demonstrates how uninterested everyone is in this. They can make rides and family areas like Hex and Sharkbait reef - really good.

Re: Mega Road Trip (US)

Thanks both - appreciate the tips! :D Yes, we’ve booked a platinum pass :) My e-ticket says I can get the photo ID processed at any cedar fair park, which is pretty handy since it turns out some of the parks are closed mid week in August so I’m rejigging my route to hit Kings Island first rather tha...

Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

I know it’s an enthusiast forum but even so I’m surprised by the praise it’s getting on here. The pre-tunnel section is one of the most boring layouts I’ve ever been on.

My favourite thrill rides prior to today are Nemesis and the Incredible Hulk (oooo have they changed, find out soon!) I hadn'...
