Re: Duel - General Discussion

Rode Duel yesterday, and I think this is an improvement. Things like the new portraits, which are a huge step up from the outdated news story and, in my opinion, the ride music, really drag this ride into the present. Also, one of the more subtle(ish) changes is that, instead of the zombies in the w...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Rode Smiler today, and it’s still kind of rough. However I think that the roughest part is now the inversion on the 1st drop.

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

I’m very small, about 4 foot 11, but I thought Nemesis, last year at least, to be butter smooth, and I was riding in row 7!

Re: Flamingo Land

Finally got to Flamingo Land last week, and I definitely had lots of fun there the park is great and so are the rides. Here’s a review of the ones I did: Mumbo Jumbo Easily the best ride in the park. The drop and zero-g roll are my favourite parts, as the drop is just insane and the roll is so close...

Re: SW9

Would be a certain winner with park guests! Something along the line of journey to atlantis at universal or a drop along the lines of dudley do right ripsaw falls would be epic! If they themed it aswell as Wickerman it would be worthy of the title SW.. Would be the fist water based SW aswell so ano...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

I hope to see some sort of frisbee ride, as Maelstrom is my favourite ride at Drayton Manor. Due to the height limit, they could even dig a hole for it like Nemesis, and that would probably increase the thrill factor.

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Found this on Theme Parks UK’s website: Terror of the Towers  is not opening for  Scarefest  in 2018 – it’s receiving the love and care it needs to get back up to scratch and will return soon Does this mean that TOTT could return for next year?
