The new train paint jobs are looking great! I have yet to ride most of the new themed trains, as the queues for the monorail either put me off, or I, along with others, either end up on the Cariba Creek monorail train, or a plain one... :( I did wonder why the moonorail was offline on Saturday. It ...

Sunny old England!...wait a second....flooded England - Thats the one! :P My summer holidays consist of working my ass off, going to UK theme parks, enjoying my summer with friends around home and saving up. Might be going Disney Land Paris end of august, then probably Port aventura in September! :)

I used to be scared of tractors! Up till about the age of 10, whenever I saw a tractor, I would run for dear life! Either that, or hide behind something like a fence or a house I used to think they would run me over if they saw me... :( :P EDIT: This you Liam? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5GvRII...

Unfortunately I can't go. I have a party to host from 7pm onwards, so wouldn't get back in time :(

Will be at Alton the following Saturday though! And I think I have finished my theme park break, so will be up for more trips from 28th onwards :)

I can relate to both of these. I haven't been into cariba for over a year now because i can't actually bring myself to get in a bikini. The thought actually terrifys me. Last time I went in, all i could think about was what was 'wobbling' about, and how crap i must of looked. I keep wanting to go b...

:shock: Same type of incident, on the same type of ride, by the same manufacturer...Not good! Although the manufacturer might not be the ones to blame. Intamin design and build the ride, it's up to the park to keep a ride well maintained. I am very surprised that the drop tower continued operation ...

Where did it all start

Where did it all start for you? Which theme park did you loose your theme park virginity to? My first ever theme park was Flamingo Land. My first ever visit was when I was about 3 years old, and that is when my love for Flamingo Land (not thrill rides and the theme park world) started. If the park ...

My very first inverting rolleroaster was The Bullet, at Flamingo Land.

I rode the Bullet in September of 2005, on my birthday, just before it was replaced by Kumali. I rode it once, and never again :(

And that was the very start of my enthusiasm. :)

Has to be Battle Galleons! The best queue I have ever been in. I'm sure on busy days the queue will be used to it's fullest, with guests using the guns as they wait and other guests getting soaked and having to duck from the riders spraying water at them from the boats. Hex is somewhat entertaining...
