Re: Scarefest: 16-31 October 2010

Looks like they're going down the road of THN3. Put all the mazes into one block, different entrances, one exit into a big hall where there is food, a bar and merchandise. You'll probably find each queue will be outside with its own bit of theming, but the main block will be the same. Kinda odd, see...

Re: Scarefest: 16-31 October 2010

I'm a bit annoyed to see Boiler House is using the same plot as last year. Lets hope they actually include scares this time! :( I'm going to be very very concerned when entering that maze. It was amazing in 2008, but last year it was diabolically bad. :( Still carnival of screams seems to be the &qu...

Re: Rct4 - Coming Soon?

This is good news, as I thought the idea was off completely. What I'd like to see is a more realistic game, none of this cartoony crap! I'd like a real menu when choosing rides, sorted out by manufacturer, and then each individual design. I would also like hotels to be an option, and seasons so you ...

Re: Early Days

I miss lots of things really... But like Furie said, its like christmas now, no longer exciting! I love to go, and I get my excitement out of A. How long I go for, or B. Who I'm with. I always find I have a much more exciting time if I'm staying at the resort with my closest friends! (TTF Meets) I'm...

Eep! I paid about £75 for entry to EP last oct, and that was for a 3 day ticket! (Which may I add is money VERY well spent!) The thing is though, Disney parks can and will charge this. If you mention the word "Theme Park" to someone they will instantly think "DISNEY!" Disney are ...

I think 4D's just look gimmicky, and uncomfortable. Also, the problem with wing riding coasters is that any small jolt is inte...

Just after the bridge in the River Rapids queue, there's a hut on a pathway that is behind a fence.

Re: Acute dentist-phobic need advice!

Diogo, what exactly is your main fear about it? That's what you need to pinpoint? Is it the fact that it may hurt? Is it the fact that someone else is prodding around inside your mouth? Is it the fact that you're scared of something happening during the operation? Once you've pinpointed the main cau...
