Re: Europa-Park & PortAventura: 8 - 17 August 2009

I certainly rate Alton Towers higher than this Come off it Dan. Towers is a complete DIVE compared to Porta, Theme at towers is non existent, they have 2 decent rides, nemmy and oblivion, rita is very overrated and boring. I honestly don't know what to say if you rate towers above a park like porta...

Re: SW6 Theme Discussion

I too love the idea of having the corkscrews featured in the scenery, overgrown with tree roots and vines as if the "dark forest" is claiming it back.... http://i466.photobucket.com/albums/rr27/riderita/corkscrewSW6.jpg Hang on we know from other art works and plans that the new ride will...

Re: Virgin write letter to downloaders

Id imagine, they would be monitoring clients connecting to torrent server ports via there network, which im sure they have the software to do. uploads speeds are crap, should be atleast 1mb/s on the higher end packages, such as 10-20-50mb/s, but my download speed never drops below 9.5mb/s unless i g...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Skyride Station Fire

Anyone notice that when Alton have a fire they have to pump from the lake? Not very will equipped are they? You would of thought each area of the park would have a hydrant connected to the mains. You'll find most large fires when they are using a lot of water, they will use lakes and the like inste...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Skyride Station Fire

As long as it hasn't damaged the main structure of the building, it will be a case of re-doing the wall and roof, and the stages inside. and obviously new ride systems and sensors etc. Not as bigger job as people think. But, on the other hand, if the main structure of the building is damaged, it wil...

Agree with Kaycee (for once) Where do you people come up with such crap? :| seriously. anyway, i think that rita is down due to either the power is off due to skyride as they more than likey share the same grid. or due to the power been triped/blow at the sky ride it has surged ritas power and messe...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Skyride station fire (Live Updates)

Oh dear. Think we can rule out hydrulics as the cause of the fire, as at that time of the night, I'm sure the systems had cooled down. Aso people saying about the cable dropping, would need to be a massive fire to cause this, and I don't think the park woulf be open )don't forget it hangs right over...
