Re: Nottingham Goose Fair 3rd October 2009

Think I might pop along again. Was good last time. Plus it's a good way to start off my insane October :)

Re: Miniature Meeting - Blackpool & Camelot? 20th/21st June

Interested in this, but probably too late to sort out accomodation. There is no way in hell I am doing Blackpool during the day and driving home again after.

Re: Europa-Park 2009: Blue Fire / Iceland

I'm sure i remember reading, albeit on this forum, that Thorpe Park was the most profitable seasonal theme park in the world. :? Because the rides are always breaking down and people have to resort to buying priority passes in order to ride anything! Anyway, let's not turn this into a Thorpe bashin...

Re: How does the air station work?

Back during the construction days I made an animation of the tilt mechanism from guess work based off the technical drawings. It was suprisingly accurate, but I think it's long lost in the internets now and I no longer have a copy here.

'WiFi Capabilities'? What could that mean? Surely not just installing WiFi in the capsules for customers...



So the images/videos displayed on the screens can be held on a central server on the ground. Update a single server for new videos/photos rather than a computer in each capsule.

Re: SW6 Ride Discussion

Saying all that, the odd bit is "before completion and official opening date". That really does not sound like language someone who wasn't building the thing would use. Many years ago I wrote to B&M asking about SW4 (Oblivion) asking what they were doing that was making it a worlds fi...

Think they should add a Charlie style waterfall at the start of the tunnel section that cuts off before you enter. If your really unlucky it fails to cut out and you get soaked. :twisted:


Would be easier to have a waterfall covering half of the entrance to the tunnel.

Re: Drink At The Park

I do not understand this topic.

What you are suggesting really makes no sense and wouldn't serve any purpose.

If you want somewhere on park that just serves drinks go to the Tavern. Job done.

Also, how does one cug a bear?

Re: Drayton Manor 2010

Staff i often find friendlyer at Drayton than most other parks especially this season. It's been nearly 10 years since I stopped working at Drayton (wow, doesn't time fly), but it really doesn't seem like their management methods have changed at all. The main problem is that the larger rides that a...
