Flamingo land has a zoo that is constantly being improved in every area. The theme park itself has changed dramatically over the past 4/5 years, infact apart from the layout of the park its hardly recognisible. Long gone are the funfair rides, now the park is getting well themed rides for all the fa...

Bored senseless of it, i dont like the whole 'shoot lasers' aspect of the ride. Fun when you first ride but you are that interested in shooting targets that you actually miss half the ride and the whole point of a haunted house, which is to scare you. When i first rode it when it first opened it was...

Idea for flat ride in blackhole tent: Huss Topple Tower, themed as a satellite dish. Giant screens around the ride with 4D effects. Basis of the ride: Some 'unknown' force has been spotted flying over X-Sector over the past few weeks. Pre-show has interviews with locals, news crew report and an outl...

Yeah since the LRR the park has just moved upwards. I remember when all that area was just a large field with a few donkeys, now it blends the rides and zoo together very well. The walls surrounding the lions enclosure are very well themed but the rest could do with some work. I have always been in ...

For me it has to be in place of the log flume. All that open land by the flume station and queue line. Take away the flume track and there is alot of open space amongst them trees. Would it be possible to build a part of the woodie over the lake the otherwise of the haunted hallow path? I can pictur...

Thursday 13th

First time id visited the park for about 2 years and its still as enjoyable as it was when i rode nemesis for the first time back in 1994. Got my GF in for free using the current offers flying about in the papers. Headed straight over the air, the longest queue of the day at an amazing 10 minutes an...

Paint the track black and give it that menecing look again instead of the old grey mucky track as it currently stands. I know you fly through the tunnel at some speed but maybe orange lights at either side of the track as you whizz through. A sound track of a heart beat at the top of the ride slowly...

I can tell you now that the splash battle at Flamingo land is extremely popular!! A small part may be due to FL only having 1 other water ride (the lost River). Having said that, its a fantastic ride for all the family. On the Rapids/Log flume its only those 5/6 people riding that are involved with ...

With people saying the loop will go over the lake behind Voodoo i find it hard to see how it will work? If the ride is the exact clone of recent custom SLC's that have been built then the station would have to be positioned behind Bullets area. If the lift hill starts from MF and goes towards the ol...
