Re: Thorpe Park Next Coaster

When thorpe posted a picture of a woodie and said would you ride it the number of comments that said is it said is it safe was out of this world A number of comments? How many? I am sure, 100% sure in fact, that the amount of comments are from the uneducated people. And regardless, what percentage ...

Re: Thorpe Park Next Coaster

The reason i say woodies have no usp is becuase the chavs will see them as oo look its got different supports and that will be it and of course many of them saying is it safe? Merlin only go for rides that have a usp that is clear to the public. No they don't, they go for something different. Diffe...

Re: Thorpe Park Next Coaster

A woodie has no USP? Are you joking? We have a handful of wooden coasters in the UK, none of which are particularly modern - it would be a big coup for Thorpe to invest. The UK is crying out for a modern woodie - whether this is the opinion of a coaster fan or not, it is something different! If it w...

Re: The UK's next B&M?

B&M stand ups seemed to have gone out of fashion so I doubt we will see one of them The same could be said about Inverts also - B&M haven't built a new one for years and then they spring Banshee on us! Well that's not true, as last year OzIris opened at Parc Asterix. Anyway, stand-ups have ...

Re: iTunes festival 2013

People seem to forget that the big bands of the past thrived off papers reporting their 'rock and roll' lifestyle. No different to today's tabloids IMO. Except it was just tabloids - as Michelle has pointed out, Social Media, the ease of gaining information etc has just escalated this. We saw with ...

Re: iTunes festival 2013

we'd never have the joys(again, open to debate ;) ) of such things as the Macarena, or Bucks Fizz with the velcro'd mini skirts This is why we should get married!! Not a bad line up. It doesn't half irritate me when people look at music with their personal tunnel vision on. It's music, people will ...

Yeah I was just pointing out that it was probably timed in the same way as Nemmy, which isnt right anyway Yes, I know, but mike took it the wrong way, due too mis-communication, it intrigues me though, how are they timed? I'll think you will find that it was your mis-communication - certainly not m...

Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

Similar to the above, I'm planning a 2 day trip for 9th/10th September. Seeing as schools and colleges will be back then the park should be fairly quiet, with the exception of a handful of uni students? I think you are spot on - but do also remember that it's the Uni students who do not "need ...
