The height limit is pretty much capped. Placing large trees in won't effect it.

The problem within EMA lies where students whose parents are 'rich', but are unemployed and are still financially able to support their children, are entitled to EMA. But as AstroDan said from his own experience, some better off parents refuse to actually help their child financially, leaving the s...

The Roboarms look a little lackluster to me. Whilst they may provide nice thrills and entertainment they do not have a great deal in the form of presence.

The robocoaster does look very interesting though, especially if it was incorporated into a dark ride. :D

Some of the creatures photos show the Nemesis monster am I right?


They do certainly look like concepts of the Nemesis Monster. Plus its very similar to the picture on the old poster and photos.

Lol, my 6th Form: - 5 days a week; 8am - 4pm. - Being on site is compulsary all of that time. - Playing a sport is compulsary. - Full suit is compulsary. - Hair must not be below the colar, hiding the ears, or coloured/highlighted. - Bells like school with 5 minute warning bells too. - Had to go to...

I don't remember hearing of any Simpsons roller coaster anywhere, although I'd still check if I were you because I don't know 100%. I never got to go on BTTF as when I visited it was undergoing some sort of maintenance. :( I heard it was a load of mini-cars suspended on a rotating platform that was ...

ABSOLUTE TRUTH: 1. 7. This number decreases the more times you ride! Sitting in the middle gives a 6, back an 8 and front a 7. 2. FUN! Yes it is very fun. The one thing more fun than talking about Nemesis is actually riding it! 3. You WILL enjoy it no matter what. I have yet to see anyone give it n...

Nemesis is as scary as you want it to be.

I've just realised how painful those restraints are on the poor Teddy's crotch. :shock:

I think that's fantastic. :D

If you watch the video you can hear all the GP getting all excited over it; one guy says, "Wait, wait! Watch the Oblivion one goes up! Wait!", in a really involved voice.

Hearing people say stuff like that is part of the magic for me. :)

There's a coaster called Lil' Shaver somewhere. It's so bad it doesn't have a Youtube video. :(

Re: Just a few questions

First, the weather is meant to be quite bad tomorrow, so is the park still great in the wet? I've never been while it's rained before, so I have no idea. Rain is a nice little crowd killer depending on how much precipitation there is. It takes a fair bit of rain before any rides close so you should...
