Re: Towers Loving Care

Loving the fresh look for TTC. I’m so glad Towers Street is having the makeover, hopefully it’ll bring back some of the magic :)

Re: Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi

Dubai seem to love a simulator/screen based ride. With the kind of budgets they have I’d love to see them invest in some great quality coasters... hello B&M? :P

Re: Silver Dollar City

It looks like it’ll be fun, but I feel they chose spinning cars as a gimmick. This layout could be much more suited to a standard launch coaster train.

Re: Towers Loving Care

I think it looks great! It’s not quite the same, but a welcome makeover that has restored the ride to its former glory :)

Re: Alton Towers Waterpark

That’ll be a cool little addition, the water park does need some serious investment, and this is at least a small step in the right direction :)

Re: Knott's Berry Farm

The drop looks so ugly! Wonder why they chose to design it this way... unless it was due to using the infinity coaster trains?

Either way It looks like it’ll be a fun, typical Gerst layout :)

Re: Winter Wonderland - Hyde Park London

Having visited the other day, I observed that Wilde Maus XXL had a VR upgrade option for an extra £2, which apparently lowered the main price(I may be wrong).  Did anyone try this at all? Curious to see what VR would be like on a travelling ride like this. When I went there were signs in the token ...

Re: Winter Wonderland - Hyde Park London

So with Winter Wonderland now closing its doors for the season, it’s time to look forward to what may come in November 2018! I only visited once this year, and my main bugbear was the layout. I have always admired Winter Wonderland for designing the layout to cope with the crowds, but this year it f...

Re: theparklifekid's Middle East Adventures!

What an unusual park! I guess when Gerst and Vekoma provide your headline attractions, it’s certainly not going to turn the heads of many thrill seekers, but for the equivalent of £3 you can hardly complain with some of that lovely theming and facades! :)

Re: TTSP Team Changes

Thanks for all the lovely messages guys! Unfortunately life’s just a bit hectic at present and I’m not having as much time to devote as I’d like. It fills me with pride to have been part of such an amazing team and community, but I’ll still be around and look forward to seeing some of you at our 201...

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

Well that's certainly a sad sight, although onwards and upwards and let's hope we get another high quality ride. I have faith in Universal, and if the rumours are anything to go by, it sounds exciting :)

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

So it's officially booked! 5th-8th January! Very excited as it will have been 15 years since my last visit, so I'm looking for any advice on things to do and see, I'm sure plenty has changed since :D Awesome! (I'm a little jealous :P) While Disneyland Park itself hasn't had many new rides - the onl...

If there is any reveal on Halloween itself I believe it'll be the unveiling of the theming structure- or at least I hope so! :)

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

Looks like this will be a great addition, I thoroughly enjoyed something similar to this at Siam Park recently, so this would definitely persuade me to visit over some of the other Florida options :)
