Re: Carowinds

Yes, sums both manufacturers up nicely.

Mack have more in common with B&M - they provide forceful, floaty rides, but don't continuously push the boundaries like Intamin and RMC.

Re: Team Member Recruitment

Thanks to those who have submitted an application for the Social Media and Forum Assistant role.

I am hoping because Single Rider has been reintroduced, it means the baggage hold and batcher will be too. Fingers crossed..

Re: Merlin General Discussion

Yup! See below.

I want to be positive but it's a depressing outlook.

Just sell the parks to Cedar Fair or someone, please.

Re: SAW: The Ride

Having ridden Mystery Mine in it's opening year, and again last year, it seems as if this particular model of Eurofighter with the OTSR's just don't age well.

Hey guys! So I am new, but also not new at the same time!
