I have a couple of parks for you guys, the first one is Rotunda (Kent), what happened to the old woodie is really appalling. Thank Jimmy Godden for that. He's currently trying to do the same to Dreamland in Margate and would already have done the same to the Scenic Railway too if it weren't for Nic...

Ah yes, I know this ride, he's payed a couple of guest visits to the ECC lists, problem was I kept forgetting it's name (though I know it now). The park was down twice, once in the 1980's, and today. If nobody wants to buy the park or the land, then the park will just sit there, and rot away. I have...

I think that JW must do some freelance stuff because he did help with Megafobia and on his website he calls himself a Theme Park Consultant or something like that. Anyway, it's great what he does and I would love to meet him. it seems a shame that he is now semi-retired I just wander whether that i...

Originally Stampida (Port Aventura) was originally intended for Alton Towers, I don't know why they moved it. He's worked on Megafobia though. As for the Rita thing, somebody by the name of Candy Holland designed her. The giant woodie was just originally a concept he was playing about with, he didn'...

On a good day the River Rapids as I can be a very likeable person.

On a bad day, (and that's most of the time), Nemesis, I can be a bit too intense for some people.

I would love to see a Silver Star/E:GF style attraction in the valley. You could achieve an excellent drop and use the landscape to build some fantastic hills, helix' and overbanks. No inversions just terrain based hills and air time elements. Thats a very large scale ride. On the smaller side (not...

i think a hyper coaster with 12 inversions would be cool! it would be great zooming round the valley twisting and looping and it would be another record for Alton Towers :D It'd be an novel idea, but Hyper coasters dont feature inversions? :-?[/quote] They're called "Hyper Loopers," Steel Phantom a...

Ooooh, nice and long, that's what I like to see. :) Okay, my turn (Yes I am aware that I am a couple of months late with this): Liseberg, Sweden (ECC Trip) Balder: A tad slow to get going, but once it did, with the help of a little rain, it was cool (well we were in Sweden), good solid airtime, it j...
