Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

It's ridiculous when people queue for rides or wait for the fireworks but smoke. There's smoking places for a reason.

Dubai Parks has had a 33% increase in attendance for the 9 months of this year when compared to last year but the figure still isn't over 2 million.

Re: Fright Nights

Can I just ask DJ why you liked Do or Die so much? I haven't been to Fright Nights but it just looked like black walls (and less theming than Sanctum) and repetitive "scares".

Re: Inside Alton Towers - General Discussion

Good documentary but there were a few things I didn't like. Some fake news was said like towers being the most popular theme park in the UK (which goes to Legoland). It seems that there was a major cut or something due to the snow being only half mentioned. Finally I didn't seem to like how all the ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

When you buy tickets, over 12 year olds are counted as adults, yet for the rapids, the age to become an adult turns to 18 years old. Now that's logical bearing in mind the ticket office where you spend money is under a 15 minute walk to the rapids where the main aim is to have fun, not make money. T...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Just remember that people like me are totally immature and will obviously injure ourselves. However, as soon as we're 18, we will be completely safe.

Re: Disneyland Resort

DCA in 2015 was brilliant but slowly, the park has lost its' Californian roots for more IPs. Pixar Pier for instance could actually be quite nice if the focus was a Victorian pier with the Pixar characters there as oppose to worlds of Pixar characters. The issue is with Galaxy's Edge opening, Disney...

Re: Tokyo Disney Resort

There is always the chance that Sinbad may be rethemed so the ride system can be used again for this new area, bearing in mind the planned site for the new port is very close to the Arabian coast port.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

It's still ridiculous what has happened to Early Ride Time. You used to be able to do it with a prebooked ticket but now you can't. This means without a MAP, you have to queue for Wicker Man for over an hour, showing once again Merlin just caring about money. It's just unfair on paying guests who ha...
