Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

my new favourite coaster at towers, people say it lacks airtime but i dont agree, thought it was way more intense than i expected and its topped off with some of the best theming in the country, solid 9/10 from me

Not worth queueing 4 hours for though like i did!

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Wonder if it will even open later today, since the queues been evac'd. TowersStreet are saying they’re giving out priority passes excluding Wicker Man, so either that means they know it won’t reopen today or they just don’t want a herd of fastrackers all at once if it reopens Edit: apparently at the...

Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

Desperate to take my 2 year old to towers after a very successful trip to Thomas Land the other week. What are the cBeebies queue times like at the moment? Is a weekday better than weekend during the summer holidays? I went last Saturday, Octonauts 45 mins, all others from about 10-30 mins if you c...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Re: PortAventura World

Well, haven't got any pictures (well I do, but have no idea how to post them xD) But basically the ferrari coaster can be seen from a long way outside the park (even from the beach near the hotel I was staying at about a 20 minute drive away. The thing looks amazing from the car parks, it looks like...

Re: Scarefest

I think that due to the idea of safe zones, Nox Infernus wont return as it didnt exactly have a very good safe zone. Dark Apocalypse will hopefully come back, was my favourite zone last year. A new scare zone could be done in x sector quite easily, it could be located on the left side of the path at...

Re: Ride Downtime 2016

I was in the queue for galactica when it stopped. I heard from someone else in the queue that the station had flooded so they might have stopped it on the lift so that the train did not enter the flooded area.

Re: What Element of a ride do you like the most?

Mine's probably The Smiler's cobra roll exit (a weird one I know) but if you lean foward when you go into the jolt is actually intense and fun
