Random question, How much do you think the shuttle bus from Staines will cost? I haven't used it before so I have no idea what to expect

Remember that water is always cheaper than chemically made smoke, especially if the towers use water from the lake. Although is does add to the effect.

So far as I've heard, there hasn't been a rollback yet, looks good fun. Does anyone else think the advert looks like a massive contrast compared to Amity Cove? The GP might go expecting a futuristic ride and end up in 1950's America. [spammypost] Quote: You've just explained it. Friction from the c...

spins at high speed due to expansion from heat You've just explained it. Friction from the cable would cause heat. 'cause the ride goes so fast, the drum has the cable pulling on it more and so causes a greater force of friction, which causes heat. The drum has to rapidly cool down before having to...

Stealths out of action from 27th-29th march (I think), Slammer's gonna be closed for a while after the recent problem, Tidal wave's still empty of water (for reasons I don't know why, help please) and I don't know about colossus. Like Thorpe have said, best to phone up on the morning your going to ...

Yes you can, if it's let go or falls away etc, then it basically turns into a projectile that could seriously injure someone if it hits them, so they could chuck you out with "endangering the public safety" or something along those lines, especially on Stealth, what would happen to someone if they ...

The park will be open to the GP and "ride it first" winners, but the first people to go on it will be the "ride it first", then the general public etc.
Hope this helps

No you plonker.

Stealth

Stupid legal reasons ,why can't we be 16? Eh well, just have to wait for 15th instead. I think the logo looks really good, and the faces are just funny (to me anyway) (P.S. look at the opening times page on the main site. Can anyone shead any light on late night events between 14th to the 17th Apri...

I quite like stealth actually, but they might add something to it, like "team stealth racing", or they could go for something obvious like "Highway 62" (for the hight), we just don't know.

My first coaster was the dragon at legoland, when I was 7. I didn't know what a roller coaster was, and came off crying :(

First looping one was kraken at sea world.

Actually, i'm still not too keen on rollercoasters
