Re: Onride Videos?

They used to have onride videos on Oblivion but they don't now. I would imagine The Smiler having it.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Wish I had actually 'listened' to the Smiler Game more. It is very accurate.

Bored of rollercoasters?

Can you ever get bored of rollercoasters, what do you think? I think I'm starting to get bored of rollercoasters.. I went to Thorpe around a week or so ago and I rode Stealth, Inferno and Swarmy and I didn't feel the old excitement and thrill that I used to have when riding these coasters and found ...

Re: The Swarm Confirmed Modifications

The reason they reversed the back seats on The Swarm on its 2nd year of running was because the GP thought it lacked of intensity, which is why they reversed the seats and added a near miss. I also noticed 2 other B&M coasters this year have had reversed seats which means B&M must be testing...

Re: Your very first TTF post?

(this is my first post btw) Thats what I fear, the construction being rushed and not properly done. When will they start building the station and the actual ride?

Re: Chessington World of Adventures - Zufari, Ride into Africa Review!

They'll need to do something to try and get the animals out and about whilst keeping them happy. Maybe a few strategic disguised heaters and treats/food would help. Ending sounds fairly neat, shame it's not quite as impressive as Rhino Rally which completely blew me away with the bridge collapse se...

Your favourite/best ride station

This can include theming, atmosphere and so on. This doesnt really apply to flats but more coasters, water rides etc.. This applys to AT rides only. My favourite ride station has to be Oblivion. The atmosphere inside the station is awesome with the loud bass, the tvs over the track and the theming i...

Re: Chessington World of Adventures - Zufari, Ride into Africa Review!

Thanks Marcus. I have to say I was apprehensive of this ride due to the standard of the Animal Kingdom equivalent but I'll take your word on the theming. Could it perhaps just be that the animals haven't adjusted to the ride yet? And also something to do with the weather, I know I wouldn't want to ...
