Re: The Swarms Area Future

It's called The Swarm Island isn't it? As for the new ride and expansion of the area, i can't really see it happening. The whole idea of the swarm is unique and i doubt that will change, adding a new ride will change the story line of what 'apparently' happened (as seen in the queue line videos). Ad...

Re: Proposed Paramount Park in Kent

This piece of news isn't ideal for the project, so hopefully they can get someone else in to run the project.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

How busy will it be on Good Friday? I know its a bank holiday so obviously it will be busy ish but as busy as July & August? Considering it's the school holidays for the next two weeks, i'm guessing it would be quite busy. However sometimes bank holidays can be quiet because the general public ...

Re: New for 2015 - I'm a Celebrity! Maze

After looking at videos, it's just what i expected. Theming looks good but it didn't really exceed my expectations. One thing i will point out is that clearly the 2nd bush tucker trial doesn't drop things on you because the answer was Carl Fogarty not Kian Egan (look at the video, you will see what ...

Re: Thorpe Park - New Indoor Attraction 2016

Is it just me, or does those images look incredibly like a Dalek eye from Dr Who? I think it's too early to speculate what it's going to be. That image probably doesn't have any connection to the attraction though, I just think it's interesting that it looks like that.

Who do you think will replace him, how will top gear survive, what is your reaction?? I have quite a big opinion on this, Clarkson should never of been sacked. Yes, he did assault a producer but look at the petition that was created over 1 million signatures, that shows just how many people support...

Honestly, do you think they will get that queue full after opening week?? I wouldn't judge this attraction before you have experienced it, this really could go either way 50:50. Some will like it some wont, but what i have seen from youtube videos from those who have already had small previews it's...

Re: On-Ride Breakdown Experiences

Me and my family were stuck on safari sky way at Chessington in 2010 i believe. All the trains were building up just outside the station, we were there for about 20 minutes and in this time the trains decided to go backwards and forwards bumping into each other, it was a very strange experience. We ...

The only place Ripsaw will be moving to is the scrap heap, it's too old to be moved anywhere. I can imagine it's only got a few years life in it anyway, if that!

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I can understand the staggered openings last year (skyride, sub terra, the flume and rapids) But that's ridiculous now! How can they close an entire area until 11 am, this won't be adequate especially with peak summer crowds. The rapids and the flume have opened late for a while, so i can see why th...

Re: The Future of The Waterpark

I'm guessing that's an error made on towers behalf, or they simply haven't updated their opening times yet. I would guess they will be updated in the near future. I have found in the past that Alton Towers can be a bit slow when it comes to updating their website for certain things.

Re: Heroicland - Calais - Opening 2018

I have never heard of this project before, is this new? Or perhaps i just didn't realise it was happening. The first coaster looks great, similar to Furius Baco, a great style of coaster except the roughness. I'm already excited for this as it's not that far from the UK. Something to keep an eye on ...

I highly doubt Oblivion is going anytime soon. Yes it often has a low queue but that doesn't mean people aren't enjoying the ride. Why would the scrap something that's in perfect working order doesn't really make sense, that would just be a waste. Would you scrap a car in perfect working order and c...
