Re: TTF sex scandal!

I see the church are getting their knickers in a twist over all of this. Please, write to your MP and let them know if you're in favour of the proposed changes. I've written the following to mine: Dear xxxxxx, I am writing to you regarding the current consultation and (hopefully) new legislation for...

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm and General Discussion

Hi all! Went to Thorpe last Monday (the jubilee bank holiday) expecting the place to be heaving, but thankfully the longest we queued was for Saw (60 mins) and that was by far the longest. The Swarm, on the other hand, had pretty short queues each time we went on it! First ride was first thing in th...

Re: Thorpe Park 2015 Coaster

I know it's probably WAY to early to even start thinking about this, but what would you like to see in terms of theming. In short, how would you like this coaster to be themed? I was in Thorpe on Monday after a few years (Stealth was the newest ride when I last went), I loved the theming around The...

Re: TTF sex scandal!

Marriage in this country has its roots from religious acknowledgment/endorsement/whatever. A civil union provides a couple with all of the same rights, privileges and benefits that a marriage in a church brings. I just do not see how there is an equality issue here, it's simply a different name for...

Even posted the link to the consultation on my Facebook back when it was first put online to get friends to fill it in!

SAW's platform is on the top level remember, so a disabled lift isn't out of the question.


Ah. I've never ridden it, so didn't know that.

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Okay, going to throw something different out there (hence the double post). I'm assuming this ride will have disabled access, so how come the ride track enters the building above ground level but all the rider entrances and exits are at ground level? There could be ramps inside, but the building see...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

It's been noted that the building is tall and I think spoken about on this thread before. There has also been talk at the Pleasure Beach AGM or something (again in this thread) that the ride will feature the world's steepest drop. Could the ride leave the station turning ever so slightly to the left...

Re: Merlin Parks Quick Questions

Do people reckon Thorpe will be busy over Jubilee weekend?

Am thinking about going on the Monday - kinda hoping the general public will be too busy waving union flags at street parties while I'm at Thorpe Park!

Re: Warwick Castle - Witches of Warwick

I'm going there in a few weeks - this room sounds horrible!

I went to the Edinburgh Dungeon over Easter and was told I proper screamed during the Burke and Hare graveyard scene. Is this room in Warwick similar?

Re: PortAventura 2012: "Shambhala" B&M Mega Coaster

I'm a bit late to this thread...

Just looked at the POV on Youtube and: oh my days! I love Port Aventura (been twice), so think it's time for another visit.

Also LOVE the new B&M seat configuration / restraints for this ride. Looks so roomy.

Re: Merlin Parks Quick Questions

I'm going to Thorpe at the end of August (probably just after the bank holiday).

Any tips as to how to avoid a hellish day of queueing? Other than forking out £70 for ultimate fast track!

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

It could be either, but seeing things close-up would work in a darker environment where the light from the display won't have to compete with natural light. But I doubt SW7 will get anything like this anyway. Probably for good reason too . :lol: Agreed, was just thinking out loud. In theory it'd be...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

^ a little bit like that, yeah. But what makes augmented reality work (and I disagree, BigAl, I think it'd have to be done outside) is that you're taking the real world and adding elements to it. This Youtube video shows you what I mean - adding random animals / objects / monsters to the world, rath...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

^ That bloke in the photo looks like he's about to spew! Galaxie Express seems more like a simulator on a track than augmented reality , which is where you can still see the real physical world but there are computer-generated elements overlayed into it. As mentioned, it's not going to be SW7, but w...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

I'm thinking completely outside the box here and know this is the least likely option for the world first, but... If done right, I'd love to see a coaster which somehow included augmented reality. Each rider straps on some glasses while you're on the ride and there's some kind of invasion going on a...
