Re: BigAl's RCT3 Creations

It's not quite finished yet but there are other things that I'll probably release before then, so don't worry. :)

Re: Chessington World Of Adventures: General Discussion

Even if Chessington couldn't afford Panda's, there are other species that could potentially bring more visitors in. What about some koala bears? The only other place in the UK to see them is Edinburgh Zoo, but that's far from Chessington. Plus, there are some zoos across the world that have special ...

Re: People smoking marijuana outside the park entrance...

personally i dont see the harm if it was outside the main entrance, it wasnt exactly in the park. If people kept out of the 'busy' public areas, ie in the gardens, then i dont see an issue personally. Eh? :-s It was in the park. It was on Alton's property, so their rules still apply. As do the rule...

Re: Chessington World Of Adventures: General Discussion

Could I just say, I love Hocus Pocus Hall as well! :P Any way, I know plenty of people where I live that know about Chessington who aren't enthusiasts. I know a handful that have travelled down to the park as well, and that's from my year group alone. I also wouldn't say it isn't a major park. The i...

Re: People smoking marijuana outside the park entrance...

No, because you can't drink wherever you want around the park and you aren't supposed to smoke wherever you want around the park. If they don't want people doing it then that should be that.

Re: People smoking marijuana outside the park entrance...

I've come across this too. It's not just at Alton Towers either (in fact, I've found people smoking the stuff even at Chester Zoo :x ). It's not very nice and I wish people wouldn't do it. But people are inconsiderate. They don't care. I also wish that people who smoke cigarettes wouldn't just walk ...

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm and General Discussion

The thing is, not every stunt is bad. And people complaining about the bad stunts isn't good. Just because someone talks about Thorpe Park doesn't mean they're going to give them their money. And if the comment is negative then others will want to know why there area negative comments regarding Thor...

As I said, it references the earlier stunt. That stunt was distasteful.

Care to explain in what way this particular PR stunt could be considered distasteful? :)


This one. :)

Edit: The relation is that the latest stunt references this. I can't see why anyone would want to remind people of such a horrendous stunt like that.

Here's some more info on the ArrowBATic: Introduction Since the initial Arrow Mad Mouse was developed in 1998, we found customers asking for a Meaner and Madder Mouse. Rather than adding a drop and hill before the "S" curves, Arrow decided to take an extreme approach and offer the traditio...

Re: Blaze's Coaster Corner

Just had a look at LCM11F this morning (for a while , actually as my keyboard ran out of charge so I had to put it under a light and wait for it to have enough charge so I could exit the simulator :P ). It's not quite as smooth as Cobra in places but it's still much smoother than anything I could ma...

Re: Strange Coasters

No problem! :) I don't know if anyone has noticed this, but look at the track on the image below. It isn't banked at all, just like the RCT3 version. The stress on those trains and the track must have been ridiculous! Not to mention the following inversion! :P http://bgwfans.com/wp-content/uploads/2...

Re: Blaze's Coaster Corner

Only managed to look at Cobra as my laptop won't work. Once again, you,ve made an exceptionally smooth coaster that doesn't get weaker as the ride goes on. The Swarm and Corkscrew? What a combination! :P The only things I can think of that would help Cobra would be to have designed it so that the mc...

I recently stumbled upon this website that has links to lots of info and resources on old coaster projects. Here are a few bits I thought were quite interesting...

Re: BigAl's No Limits Coasters

That's surprisingly smooth actually. I like the crookedness of the supports, but what guy could afford an Intamin car. Also, with the tunnel, it failed the tunnel test :P If only there was a choice for 'unsafe-looking wheelbarrow mounted to PVC pipe rails'. :P The tunnel looks fine to me. :? Sure, ...
