Re: Gulliver's Valley Resort - Sheffield

The Star has published an article showing drone footage of the new park! It’s looking rather nice and more work has been done than i was expecting!

Re: Gulliver's Valley Resort - Sheffield

After a lovely bike ride around Rother Valley Country Park earlier today, I decided to take a turn down a small road which brought me out behind the perimeter fence at what I believe is the rear end of the park! Sign along the small road to notify delivery drivers this is not the entrance! :lol http...

Re: Gulliver's Valley Resort - Sheffield

Re: TT Spring Spectacular 2019 - Reviews & Feedback

Yesterday was absolutely fantastic! Although it always is so no surprise there! Smiler ERT to start the day was... Cold! Sore head and numb hands aside, Smiler is always a fun ERT to do (but only front row because every other row is torture)! The ride takeovers were as fun as ever, it is so much mor...

Re: Alton Towers Stargazing Pods - Opening April 12th 2019

I have a suspicion that there may be an opening ceremony for the stargazing pods tonight.

There are some temporary lights and speakers set up in one corner and there is a team of people from Jubilee Fireworks present!

I've ordered it to collect at attraction but won't be arriving till Saturday morning and I don't think the ticket booths will be open at 8:30.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

To be fair, I think Spinball also has a permanent SRQ because I went on a Monday a couple of weeks back and it was empty (0-5 min queues maximum) so you'd expecting for the SRQ to be unavailable but the park confirmed on Twitter it was in use. However after queuing in the main queue (was only 0 mins...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

I rode Derren Brown's ghost train for the first time yesterday after being spited by it in the past and I can say... That was disappointing! Yeah it was good but a few things spoiled it for me, such as screaming kids pushing and shoving in the underground station section which ruined the atmosphere,...

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

The flames don't even make much of a difference anyway, when on the ride you barely see them anyway (unless you ride it in the dark) so I wouldn't go planning a trip purely based on the flames.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

This was my first ever Dungeons attraction and my honest review is... It's absolutely great fun!!! I was sceptical at first and didn't really think it would be something I'd enjoy but after getting fed up of queuing for rides I thought I'd give it a go. I was very impressed!!! The acting is superb a...

Re: Gulliver's Valley Resort - Sheffield

Think it's meant to be done for either 2020/2021. I think groundwork has begun but not sure on anything else. They're keeping quiet but it is definitely going ahead.

Re: Gulliver's Valley Resort - Sheffield

Yeah, it's gonna have a fair few coasters upon opening. I saw some basic plans the other month as they had a stall at the Rotherham show. It looks like it is going to be a very nice park, I think bigger than the other Gullivers out there, and this will also have a centre parcs-esque feel to it with ...

Re: Ride Op - Thrill Ride Simulator

I bought this when it was released a while ago. It is pretty fun for the first 0.01 seconds and then it's boring and repetitive.

Make sure you aren't reading it wrong as you might have gotten mistaken with Charlie and Lola. I've just checked ridetimes and CATCF is not there.
