They have a really fun water fight game at Port Aventura, where each team or person has like a little wooden shack and a catapult attatched to it, water bombs go in the catapult and you smash them all over your opponents. That could be quite fun as long as we get the weather for it 8)

I remember my first ride on Rita, watching it launch from the queue line it looked so disappointing. I really did think it looked slow with not much oommpphh at all. When I got in the seat I was being all calm and was sitting forwards slightly, them WHAM, what a launch! Never crapped one like that o...

That is a Giant Huss Frisbee, far too big for Alton Towers, espectially at nearly 150 feet at full swing


Yeah I deff agree with that, but I did also like the one they have at Drayton Mannor which I guess would also be quite popular at AT though not what most people on here would be hoping for

I'd say that huge beast of a thing they have a Cedar Point looks pretty thrilling :)

From the list I think I'd go for Frisbee or a Woody. Either would be great, but a frisbee more likely due to costs perhaps?

Shame all these good ideas would cost so much! Seeing as everybody seems to like the idea of dropping head first, a stand up drop tower that rotates 180 at the top before dropping? :?

Last time I went to Thorpe my day was ruined by ride down time - the only ride that didn't seem to break down ever 30 mins or so was NI. Stealth barely got going, Detonator was having constant trouble and Loggers Leap was suffering with water problems :shock: . I cant remember a visit to AT that has...

It's going to be real touch and go for me, I go on June 4th until June 7th and I'm hoping and praying we'll get a ride! I read that the ride opens to the public on June 9th, following 2 days of media and fan exclusive pre-opening rides. Not sure how accurate that is, but hopefully you will be able ...

Have they done anything to it or is it still all brown/rust coloured? Camelot haven't really bothered doing any theming whatsoever to their recent attractions, which is a shame as they used to be quite good at it. Hopefully knightmare will give them a badly needed boost, I haven't visited since ToT...

Visited Camelot on Sat and have the say Knightmare looks pretty intense! They were just finishing off the station when I was there. The second drop looks insane! The park really needs this coaster.

How about a tower drop ride, similar to Apocalypse at Drayton Manor - but it tilts all the way forward so that you are actually parallel with the ground? Like the flying posistion on Air? Not sure what anyone else thinks or if it has been done before, but I reckon it would be kinda cool 8)

Last time I went I had the misfortune of eating at the Courtyard Tavern in ME. Although the service was excellent, the food was bloody awful :evil: SP discount is good though!

Was thinking about visiting Camelot (it's between there and BPPB atm) on Sat and as I have not been for years (since the rack first opened), I was wondering how much has changed? Do they still have the Tower of Terror coaster? Whats the latest on Knightmare? The pics of it look pretty damn sweet :D

Hopefully they will keep PA included in the AP next year as I plan on visiting then, not been for ages and what I remember was brill! :lol: Hopefully the pass will be able to be used a few times at PA as there not much else to do in Salou other than PA and get legless 8) lol
