Re: Flamingo Land

What puzzles me about this ride is that it is over 8 years old already but Flamingo Land have said it has cost them £20 million. That's £2 million more than The Smiler. How's does that make any sense what so ever.

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

I think being so far into the season now this attraction will only be a short term thing. CCL really needs a complete overhaul. The park is in desparate need of an area to cover the ages between CBeebies and the next step up coasters. It's been mentioned before but I think a LegoLand would be perfec...

Re: PortAventura World

Yes queue jumping was hurrendous but I think that's more down to the cattle pen, low fence set up of the queue lines. Odds are if Alton had queue lines like that there would be a lot more of it going on and while there was a lot of school trips there I never really found tem too bad. The older ones ...

Re: PortAventura World

Hey Everyone, Just back from a family holiday at Portaventura World and I have to say what a fantastic resort. We stayed in the Hotel Caribe. Very nice clear hotel with a great beach pool and the food was always to a very good standard every day. Portaventura park itself has a great variety of rides...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I went to the park for the first time in 6 years yesterday and whilst I had a great time and the Wickerman was brilliant, I cannot help but feel that the park is really starting to lack in flat rides. Submission gone, Ripsaw gone, Enterprise not looking like its going to be open for a while, Twirlin...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

Right I went on this yesterday and here is my review based on my experience. Now I have the premium season pass which means that access to the dungeons is free which to be honest is a good thing because if I had to have paid for that I genuinely feel that I would have felt ripped off. Don't get me w...

Re: Duel - General Discussion

To be honest I think Duel’s problems are more than skin deep.

The ride opened in 1992 and, in my opinion, needs a huge overhaul to bring the ride system and effects into the 21st century. It really needs to be shut for a year and completely redone.

Playing the beta and downloading some of the user created parks. They are insane. If anyone wants to add me on steam and share some content my steam name is wortho88.

Same here. Get to grips with it first then try and start an attempt at an Alton Towers recreation once I have confidence with it.

Hi everyone. It's been a very long time since I have been on here so I thought it best to reintroduce myself. My real name is Sam. I worked at Alton Towers nearly 8 years ago now before I joined to RAF. Got married and had a daughter since then and she is starting to get into her rides now. Anyway I...

Parkitect

Parkitect has just gone live on steam early access at just over £13 and I must say for an alpha its a really good game. Yes it is lacking a bit in content atm but its only alpha and user content and modding is already in full swing. Can not wait to get more creative on it. Anyone else played it yet?

Re: Pleasure Beach Blackpool - Nickelodeon Land 2011

As much as I enjoy going to PBB I really think that the place is starting to fall behind. Yes they have done a brilliant re-theme with nickelodeon land but the last major ride they built was infusion and even that wasn't a new ride. It was instead the truma tizer from south port when they shut that ...

After going on th13teen on sunday and 4 times today I have simply come to one conclusion. th13teen is absolutely, positively brilliant. When I went, I went on with the mind set that the ride was going to be a family coaster, so I was expecting boredline thrill, but not on par with nemesis and co see...

Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion [SPOILERS TOPIC]

well, my view is for a family coaster its going to me good, but for what they have built it up to be leaves alot to be desired however looking at the footage alot wasn't working so I'll hold my breathe on this until I have ridden it my self. Nice to see alton management trying to look inconspicuous ...

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion

ha, he wouldn't last 2 seconds in the armed forces so I think he should remove the combats straight away, anyway the queue in the plans don't go anywhere near the lift or first drop so I'm hopeful that it will be themeing that surrounds the lift and drop.

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion

It will only have about 4 cars of 4 people each so to reach 1200pph, there needs to be three trains at least, and if there are that many, one train can not spend too long on a block or trains will stack around the circuit, stopped on the lifts, on the brake runs in the stations and where ever else....

Re: 2010: Spinball Whizzer Re-Theme!

I'm a massive sonic fan, way back from when I had it on built in on my sega master system, and I think if towers did re-theme spinball into sonic spinball then I think it would be awsome as sonic has such a huge mass appeal, its something towers could do well as they could draw past inspiration from...
