Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

Honestly, I was disappointed with my first ride on Wicker Man, but it was still special because it was my 100th coaster, and since then I’ve started to love the ride more and more, until it became my favourite UK coaster. I already have so many great memories with Wicker Man, summer festival ERT, my...

Re: Rita - General Discussion

Rita’s actually one of my favourite steel coasters in the UK, and my favourite steel coaster at towers. I hated the ride until I had a front row night ride in 2017 and it became my favourite UK coaster, I don’t find it to be rough and I really enjoy the layout, and there’s actually some airtime at p...

Does this mean Tigris will use the 2 car trains instead of the 3 car trains used on other SeaWorld sky rocket twos, or do you think this will change?

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Might as well give my review of Scarefest, I managed to visit 3 times during Scarefest, and enjoyed each visit. This will contain spoilers. House Of Monsters: I only got to do house of monsters once this year and I felt it was improved upon from last year, and it was overall a really fun attraction....

Re: ScareMazing 2018 - Reviews & Feedback

Thanks to the team for such a good event. Everything was great. Nemesis ert was a great way to start the day and the ride takeovers in the morning were really fun. The mazes were running really well, and I even screamed once in Sub Species, which hasn’t happened to me in any run through of any maze....

Re: Ride Op - Thrill Ride Simulator

That looks really interesting. I probably won’t buy it though, unless it has VR. If it does have VR, I could see it beeing more successful

It looks like you can’t film on any rides, and you aren’t allowed loose articles on you on the major coasters

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I’ve been at BPB again today, think Icon is my number 1 in the UK now. I love the whole ride, and the soundtrack pushes it to the number 1 in the UK for me now

Re: Hansa Park

This looks absolutely insane. I’ve never done a gyro-drop so I don’t know if these are supposed to be forceful. It says “the seats tilt” at the end of the video, so looks like this could be very intimidating for the public

Re: Cedar Point

Think they need to shut the ride down.. do a full re-test and maintenance check from RMC themselves, then re-open to the public when ready. The ride is having a lot of problems that shouldn’t be happening.. even with the reputation RMC have, I understand there will always be technical issues and sm...

Re: Cedar Point

At least it reopened the same day. It’s such a shame Steel Vengeance has had a bad start. First was the bump, then the 1 train service for ages, then the phone policy, then the hot sauce incident, and now this. Hopefully this is the last major issue for the ride

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

While the queue times can be off sometimes, it does act as a good guide. It also works both ways, sometimes it will be under and other times it will be over :) This definitely is the case, as I’ve been in queues that are way longer than what ridetimes says, and other times been in queues way under ...
