Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

For me, Alton Towers just feels more magical than any other theme park in the UK. This is largely helped by the audio, but the location is also stunning. It’s a lot more unique than a lot of the other parks, and that’s what separates it.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I may be going to the park during Oktoberfest, so I’m just wondering, if I had to pick and choose between rides during late hours, what are the best ones to try out? Thanks.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - Quick Questions

Does anyone have a picture, preferably JPEG, of the Thorpe Park logo without the text on it (the THORPE PARK bit)? Thanks.

Re: Mechanical Engineering in the theme park industry

Re: SW9

^ Icon is a Mack Multi-launch like mentioned above :) A lot of people seem to think it'd be a good fit for the park but it would kind of make Rita defunct so whether they'd build another launch coaster with Rita still there is the big question. The idea is to remove Rita and use the space created f...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Is it worth taking a bag if you can only put it in the baggage areas? How often do people steal things?

Does anyone know exactly where the drop-off point is, as I need it for an upcoming trip.

Re: Industry General Discussion

Just a quick question for an essay I have to do: does anyone know how many accidents a year (not routine, so evacs don’t count) are the fault of the the ride itself, such as a computer failure, mechanical fault etc.

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I’m going to Blackpool this summer (very late July), so I was just wondering what rides we should do in what order. My mum is adamant on dragging us all on Alice, so that must be included.

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

I would love to see a Ghostbusters retheme, but not 5D. The main reason being they’re full of screens, and I greatly prefer physical models.

Re: Stealth

Before I start, I want to say that the last three coasters I have left to review are so tight. I could barely choose between them but, for the sake of listing things, I had to.  Funny story to start off with. As we were driving down the M25 to our hotel the day before our visit, we past the park, an...

Re: Colossus

So, first of all, Colossus surprised me a lot. Not only was it much better than I had originally expected, but it managed to beat out Saw in my list (coming soon). So, what was it exactly that surprised me? First of all, the whole area is very good for taking off ride photos. There’s track pretty mu...

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride

So, next up is The Walking Dead: The Ride, which was the last thing I rode before leaving, and first of all, I’ve got to say that I prefer this to X. However, I do think that X was more necessary for the park, as my 8 year old little brother was thoroughly bored for most of the day. Anyway, onto the...
