Re: Planning- Sweden 2019

I visited Liseberg one weekend in June 2014, and whilst the park was very busy I didn't think the queues were bad to be fair. They have a vast selection of rides that help soak the crowds up well, and also due to the long opening times you can usually easily fit everything in. We did Balder and Heli...

Re: Drayton Manor

I have a question about the “Pirate Adventure” ride. Were is it in the park? I is it open? It's the warehouse looking building here:  https://goo.gl/maps/45kXHyKsHjM2 Regarding whether it's open, it is still close unfortunately. I believe what I posted last year is still accurate. Anybody got any i...

Re: Drayton Manor

Is it?? It’s one of the best attractions there.. if it is being replaced, then a major coaster is needed to replace it Supposedly it's due to the terrible reliability it has been having over the last couple of years. The trains chassis needs to replaced, quoted at over £200,000.00 and apparently th...

Re: Drayton Manor

G-Force is going to be removed this season apparently. I wonder if we will see a replacement any time soon? It leaves the park with only one decent coaster.

Re: What happened to Ripsaw?

They really should have just bought a new Top Spin as they're great rides and relatively inexpensive. However, this is a Merlin park, they don't do flats.

Bit of a late reply, but quite a lot of the ride is actually up by Merlin Studios North, behind Cloud Cuckoo Land.

Re: Alton Towers Magic Making Museum

It would be a fantastic addition to the resort, and not necessarily something that would only be targeted at enthusiasts. It's not unusual to hear the general public reminiscing about old rides and attractions. Towers have rather large archives, I'm sure they could quite easily create some sort of m...

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Excellent addition to the park, perhaps the most "complete" ride that Merlin have created in my opinion. It's not the best woodie I've ridden; but it is a really fun ride, plenty of speed to it and the theming is top notch for the UK industry. The pre show is incredible, and was a real sur...

Re: Past rides: "Where are they now?" The Guide

That is a photo of the Showboat at Drayton Manor, it was in operation as a fun house up until the late 1990's, and has remained in situ albeit closed since then. They used to be very common across theme parks.

Awesome, you've done a great job of the B&M and Intamin track! :D

I look forward to seeing more drawings.

I'm fairly terrible at drawing but I may be tempted to contribute something at some point.

Justin, your drawings are great! Really helps to visualise what could potentially be underneath the sheeting.
