Re: Important traits/qualifications for different people in the theme park industry

To add to that, here is something from John Wardley's website: (a) Technical For this approach you would need an engineering degree, and then get a job with one of the main ride manufacturers (of which there are few in Britain) or one of the specialist consulting engineers. Jobs are few and far betw...

Re: What ride's freak you out?

Detonator freaks me out. It has such a loose seatbelt. It's just so scary.

I have the same effect on Rush at Thorpe Park if you make the seatbelt loose. When the swing falls back, you get thrown forward in the seat and I still can't help but grab the seatbelt.

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

^ Launched left hill? Cause if they make things for short takeoff and landing, then it may be perfect for launching up a fairly short lift hill.

In short no.
In long noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

Re: What is so good about Nemesis???

I have to say, I was kind of dissapointed when I went on. All I had heard was how amazing the coaster was, and how it was the best in the world. However, I wrode it, and although it was incredibly fun, I still kind of thought "meh". This was mainly because of the hype. It was the same sort...

Re: Nemesis Water Colouring Gone!

Am I the only one that thinks it looks quite nice without the red? Sure it looked cool when it was actually dark red, but when it is a kind of pink colour it looks a bit rubbish in my opinion.

I think it looks pretty great! I find it quite funny that Merlin have obviously heard that people are making fun of the Shipping Containers, so they are using them for accomodation. Well done Merlin. :D
