Went last Thursday and even though the queues were about 1 hour + for SF10, G-force and Maelstrom, it was a good day. G-force is the most uncomfortable ride ever but I really like the music :D Shockwave is uncomfortable too, bit too short but I did enjoy it. Stormforce 10 is my fave at the park, and...

I went there a few months ago and I didn't feel that safe on the loop coaster either. The restraints didn't feel 'safe' and getting to the loop, was scary. I liked 'Wipe Out' though, but after 9 re rides in one go, the op told me to go on other rides.. there were no other people queuing for it, I do...

On Nemesis I don't really 'hold tight'. On the rest I probably do.

I went to Blackpool yesterday and had my first ride on Infusion. I was expecting it to be amazing after all the media attention it got but I didn't think it was that good. Theres something about it that I don't like, it doesn't have 'it'. It's quite rough but I thought the seats were quite comfortab...

Nemesis - I didn't plan to go on this on my first trip. But me and my friend had just been on Air so we were by it and she told me she wanted to go on because there was no queue. So I went too. I didn't think I would go through with it because back then I used to hate rollercoasters. But I'd been on...

A few days in different ways. Back in 2006 when I went when i had a day off school. I was distraught to see Nemesis closed. And it was raining really bad all day. And in April this year, it was a sunny day, but one of the busiest times i had ever see it. Got on a limited amount of rides and to top i...
