Re: Legoland Windsor Resort - General Discussion

A frustration of mine which extends to the Christmas period too.

Why don't Merlin see the benefit of the Six Flags, Cedar Fair, and European parks model that run events this time of year included in a season pass, which are massively profitable?

Re: Busch Gardens Tampa

I like how vibrant they are, but still don't understand why a crocodile would be flipping in the air? This is the new restraint design first featured on Steel Vengeance, and all models since such as Twisted Timbers and Zadra. Generally comfortable apart from on your shins if you are over six foot ta...

So for those of you who attended, what did we think of the fireworks this year?

Better? Same as last year?

Re: Alton Towers Ultimate Firework Spectacular

Ever wanted to know how the Fireworks are operated? This year has seen over 250 people involved in the creation of the show. The Operations Cabin co-ordinates the display each night, with each separate element of the show having its own dedicated set of controls, including pyrotechnics, sound and li...

Re: Dubai Parks & Resorts

Clearly the Freespin was supposed to be themed as the Joker!

I'm most interested to see what they do with the Mack coaster, as it was a pretty custom layout to fit the space.

Re: Merlin General Discussion - New Owners agreed in £4.8bn deal

I just hope they prioritise quality over quantity though. There is only so much copy and paste of Madame Tussauds in every city in the world they can do.

Let's face it.. I bet very few people buy an Annual Pass to repeat visit a midway attraction alone.

Re: Rameses Revenge

My fondest memory of Rameses Revenge was during its first few years during Fright Nights (as I recall the event being called then, before the family transition). It was so popular, the line reached 2-3 hours, which filled the elevated queue line, and went in to the long extension in the large plante...

Those were the days!

Originally Boiler House was located in ATH in the Emperors Suite - and the exit came straight out in to the Dragon Bar - hilarious!

Re: Rameses Revenge

So what do we think of Rameses Revenge finally leaving the park?

My preference was that they replaced it with a floorless model from Huss. Shame it was not to be.

Here's some footage we uploaded today that hopefully will bring back some fond memories in years to come.

Re: Forbidden Kingdom Drop Tower - New for 2021

Whilst I am pleased to see investment in the park, the amount of thrill rides for older kids really is diminishing. The Zamperla model mentioned above does look fun, but I would prefer for the ride to be an actual mini shot and drop tower, rather than a glorified frog hopper! Fingers crossed for a F...
