Hi OliverDav, welcome to the Forum!

You'll need to upload the image to a hosting site, such as Imgur, then copy the BBCode into a post. It should like something like this:
[img]the url of the image[/img]

When pasted, the image should appear instantly.

Hope this helps :)

Re: Drayton Manor

Good news! Although the Looping Group don't have a lot to their name (some of their major parks include Pleasurewood Hills and Bagatelle in France), it's certainly great to see that someone is stepping in and will hopefully invest a little. I last visited Drayton Manor in 2018 and, whilst it's got s...

It's the hottest day of the year so far today, with temperatures peaking around 30 degrees.

Who else wishes they could cool off on the Congo River Rapids? Not long to go now!
