I'd love to know what he really thinks about Merlin altering his work - whether that's the "revamps" of Haunted House and Bubbleworks, or Thorpe's inverter sharing the Nemesis brand.
I'd be very interested to hear about his work for non-Merlin parks - for example his role in the story of Megafobia. Also, I understood that he worked for BPB at some point - possibly only on the shows though?
With a ride like Saw, how much difference does it make when Merlin is using a third-party inteleectual property, rather than creating their own theme from scratch? Was there a back-up plan in case the ride did not get the Saw licence?
At what stage in the development of Nemesis did they realise they were going to have to compete for the limelight with 2 other new coasters - The Big One at BPB and (to a lesser extent) Shockwave at DMP? Did that affect their work in any way? What were relations like between the three?
Now that rollercoasters have reached the lilit of what humans can physically endure, where do you envisage the future of the ride type?
If anything, surely coaster have become tamer in recent years? Of all the truly intense coasters I can remember riding, none of them are less than around 15 years old. If anything, I'd say the only limit that has been reached is the limit of how big a ride parks can afford to build.
