Re: Other Parks QQ - POST ALL QUESTIONS HERE

I'm going to Drayton Manor in May, and travelling via Train into Tamworth. Does anybody know how to get from the train station to the park? I believe there is some sort of bus?

I go to parks on my own quite a lot - it';s only really a problem on rapids rides, and those waterslides where they insist on 2 per boat

I'm backing up Beskins123 I am sure that odyssey cost round about 28 million pound! well - considering "great nor easter" [url=http://www.rcdb.com/id158.htm" target="_blank]http://www.rcdb.com/id158.htm[/url] was 5.5 million dollars - and is also a unthemed custom slc (although slightly s...

Re: The Lockers!

Some of the ones at universal are free for about an hour or 2 (i think it's the one's outside rides where you can't take bags in the queueline), the waterrides, where you can take bags on, cost a bit trhough. Edit: The worst I'ver seen was at fort fun in germany - trapper slider (alpine coaster) did...

Thanks Koopa Troopa & Islander,
Another question, could I get away with paying for 2 people and using it for four, as the price seems a bit steep?


no, unless you take it in turns! the display tells you the ride you're due on, and the number of people

Re: Quick Questions 2009

Air and rita may be borderline, as might spinball (they need one extra click compared to crush at dlrp) -and nemesis and oblivion have bigger seats.

ps - congrats on the 5 stone loss

Did wipeout, seemed a little rougher than last year - but not terrible, have to say I rather like it! tales of the coast - slow boring boat ride, with an ultra violet glow in the dark tunnel - yawn!

Re: What's The Best Flat Ride For Alton In The Future?

hmmm - speed flip looks a bit too insane for alton - but the jump2 looks about right- maybe in place of energiser and submission? or a mondial heartbreaker would be a nice small footprint, reasonable intensity ride to replace ripsaw?
