Re: iBacon's Ride of the Week!

I think your scoring system is flawed massively. In no way is It's a Small world better than Shambala..... Yes however please bare in mind this is judged on more then just thrill (eg- It's a Small World having 1), It's a Small World has extensive theming, great for familes (My 2yr Old went on it..n...

Re: Breaking Bad - Coming Soon

It's been on for ages in the USA, but not here. It has never been picked up by a UK network and has only been made available on Netflix within the last year... ....so not sure what your comment is about?! You can buy the English box set up to five though :/ There is no such thing as season 6. And i...

Re: Your World First Ideas

Not a ride idea, but I've recently wondered why rollercoasters don't have suspension? It would be incredible! Does anyone know why it hasn't been done/ couldn't be done? Suspension is used for flattening out lumps and bumps in the road. A rollercoaster track is perfectly smooth. There would be no p...

Re: First decent coaster, help?

I can sympathise with your prediciment 100%. I first visted the Towers aged 12 way back in 1996......I remember seeing Nemesis from the monorail and being very scared. Then we made our way from Towers Street to FV and as you turn the corner all you can hear is Nemmy roar.... That's what scared me. T...

Re: The 'What's wrong with the picture' Game

The date in the top right hand corner is wrong.

Rita didn't appear until 2005 and Nemesis was 10 years old in 2004/5.
