Re: Alton or Drayton 2011

the reason i didnt add other parks is to compare the 2 parks in the midlands as they are both within an hour of eachother and to many in the midlands the choice of themepark days out is going to be between these 2 parks rather than others. like i said im not trying to bash alton im just saying in te...

Re: Drayton Manor Park 2011: Hotel, Thomas Land Ride & Coaster!

i think the main reason it doesnt have a second train is how short the ride is i think the total ride time is like 49s if you think how slow some people get on the train, any bags needs to put down etc the next train will be waiting on the brakerun probably 99% of the time. and i heard that the cost...

Re: Drayton Manor Park 2011: Hotel, Thomas Land Ride & Coaster!

By the sounds of it next year will be scooby doo and possibly a new thrill ride for black revolver area. and i think obviously the whole thrill coaster thing was not meant to be leaked so i can see much tighter restrictions on who see's these things and i think they will try and find out who it was,...
