Re: Will Merlin buy Drayton Manor Theme Park?

Yeah I hope they do. It'd be a much better park if they bought it!

Re: The future of Nemesis.....

I have never read anything about this on here so am just wanting to hear people's ideas :lol If Nemesis were to break, or just come to the end of its life, what do you think would happen? Would they replace it with the exact same coaster but brand new? Would they build a new invert in the valley? W...

And from what I've seen and heard of so far, it's only in Bristol. So much for travelling theme park.

Looking on the website it looks like it's only in Bristol. I've never seen it anywhere before so it probably is just there.

I think they should. Would definitely make queues shorter so I think they should.

Re: Best themed Coaster Thorpe VS Alton...

Thorpe does have a lot of well-themed rides. Swarm being the best themed imo. I mean there's loads there like all the crashed vehicles, fire effects, and all the near misses on-ride. Thorpe do put some effort into theming, Alton don't really.

Re: Thorpe Park - Next Coaster 2016?

Everyone would be bored if it was themed around the Swarm again (I would be anyway), it's like saying that SW8 will be themed around the smiler and the ministry of joy.

^ or a stand up, maybe even a worlds first, a stand up inverted rollercoaster! They could just modify the Inferno trains if they wanted that. I've always seen a flying coaster fitting in well behind the Swarm. It could be themed to apocalypse and all that and feature a couple of flying coaster &quo...

I think that'd just be to similar to The Swarm. People will want something different.

Re: How do you feel about re-riding rides?

I usually go on all the rides I want to go on first, then leave my re-rides till' after I've been on all the rides I want to. Sometimes I re-ride when I have got off the ride, but that's usually if there's a ride other people who are with me really want to go on, and I don't. For example, last year ...

Re: What's The Smiler like?

There's only been a few occasions when the ride has broken down on the VLift. It also only lasts a few seconds. Just get on the ride, enjoy it, and don't think about the break downs!

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

They should have more premium fastracks. Let's say if all my school went, there's about 1600 students. I'm pretty sure over 100 would by fastracks, and lots would buy the premium ones. Alton should have loads. They'd be some angry guests if they ran out. But queuing is all part of the experience , ...

Nemesis is great! I was shaking and panicking on my first go, but after you just want to ride it over and over! Just think about how much you'll enjoy it, and you'll be fine! :)

I think I'll do a few over the next few days, and I'll start with Duel. In the Winter of 2002, when the park was closed, and no one was around, there was something going on in Gloomy Wood. Zombies were unearthing from the ground, and we're looking for a new home, the old Haunted House. The zombies c...
