Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

I'd like a Falcons Fury style drop tower on The Swarm Island extension. It would be themed to the swarm picking you up and whisking you in to the air (like in the original advert of the kids on bikes), before releasing you to fall to your presumed 'death'. Kind of like certain birds of prey do :)

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

Looks like an amazing water park, quite possibly the best in the world! Love the attention to detail and the sheer variety of slides they have. Still not sure that justifies the entry price, but I'd certainly still be visiting :)

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Wow I must agree with Dom, nothing particularly appealing about the current range. Looks like they've got excited with the logo and decided to slap it on everything.

If they received any of the above I would definitely be making a trip over there purely for Tayto Park! Give me an excuse to visit the family :lol

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

Disappointing to hear about the paid for fast pass system :(

We are looking to plan a trip within the next year, is Crush Coaster worthy of potentially rearranging for? If anything it may be worth waiting until it's back open so it can free up some queues :)

Re: PortAventura World

So I rode Red Force 3 times on Sunday and I think it may just be the best Strata yet. It might not have the punch out of the gate that Stealth has, or the raw speed of KK or TTD, but I loved the rolling launch and oh my word what air time. From the second you crest that top hat to the bottom of the...

Loving the updates! It will be interesting to see as more theming is added, and the new entrance looks really tidy and inviting :)

Re: Walt Disney World - Disney's Animal Kingdom

It does look absolutely incredible, just about 6 years too late. The rides alone look rather 'meh' but the immersive atmosphere looks like it'll more than make up for them :)

Re: Slagharen

Looks like a fun ride from the video, although looks a tad short for what it is. Interesting choice of coaster type as it would have been great if they could make it two circuits.

Re: SeaWorld San Antonio

Wow I really love the look of this! Looks like there'll be a nice bit of airtime and speed maintained throughout the turns. Look forward to seeing this progress further :)

I normally visit 2/3 times a year being down south. However this year I already have 4/5 trips planned thanks to the MAP :)

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

I look forward to hearing more about people's thoughts on the 25th Anniversary celebrations. I'm planning a short break there in december when (hopefully) ride availability should be better. Haven't been since I was 4 so looking forward to lots of new experiences :)

Woah love the look of that coaster! I do prefer a twisty looking layout and it looks a nice mix of airtime and inversions :)

Re: Towers Loving Care

As nice as it is to see Nemesis receiving some love and attention, I don't think the new paint job compares to the look and character it had before, as seen in the below is a picture taken in 2014. However the monster/station was looking nice with a clean up, and I'm glad that by open season this sh...

Re: theparklifekid's Middle East Adventures!

Always enjoy reading your updates and trip reports- so thanks!

The quality and detail of the theming is immense, I'd say Disney/Uni standard, and once the park is complete it will make an awesome park for all the family. Slightly jealous you can visit so frequently :D
