Re: Tomb Blaster

To be honest, if it is another Donaldson IP then I am all for it. It reaffirms Chessington as a family park. Zog would suit this ride well!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Food and Beverage

Being a vegetarian, it has always been challenging to eat at parks, especially when you don't really eat greasy foods either. I'm really pleased to see RCR increase their vegetarian offer along with other outlets. Hopefully, more healthy eating choices are to come!

Re: Tomb Blaster

That is very disappointing to hear. I have found memories of this ride prior to its recent incarnation, so to hear that it is in poor condition is disappointing. Hopefully Chessington have identified this as an issue and are working on a rebrand!

It looks like we are going to be treated to a Donut Factory in X-Sector.

I watched it yesterday, but to me it feels like they have just given up on the idea. I was expecting more personally!

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Hopefully, the references to VR will be fully removed and the theme enhanced to fit it with the Galactica theme. No doubt we will see the removal of EVE too.

Re: Overcoming fears: Tamest and most thrilling seat for each coaster

Personally, I'd do the following... Octonaughts Runaway Mine Train Th13teen Wicker Man (Although should not be underestimated) Oblivion Rita Galactica Nemesis The Smiler I've listed them in this particular order as you'll start off slow and then invert towards the end. I would say though, if you are...

Re: Alton Towers Stargazing Pods - Opening April 12th 2019

Do you think people will make the effort to go to the toilet in the block? I really hope it doesn't happen, but if drunk (or even sober) guests need the toilet, then they may decide to go elsewhere... let's say up the side! Those with young children may struggle too!

Not for me I'm afraid!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I’m not sure how I feel about the map this year. It looks much more cluttered than it already did, purely because they’ve added the accommodation options down the left hand side of the map, primarily to show off the Stargazing Pods. While I understand the need for them to advertise the Pods whereve...

mgsb_insta has posted a photo showing the arcade in Dark Forest boarded up. It looks unlikely that it will return for 2019.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

With the brand already existing, I suppose it isn't that difficult to implement. The show concepts exist and the props can easily be recreated!

I really can't wait for this!

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Single riders are good, but they can be abused by large group at times, however, if it fills up empty seats then great. It is most certainly a step in the right direction though!

With regards to the pit being cleaned... at last!!
Let's hope the rest of the ride has been brought up to standards!

The Wicker Man pins are a must. I'll be picking up an Oblivion and Nemesis pin too!
