mmm… It’s a great little website don’t get me wrong but the problem is just loading time. If they can get that sorted then yeah good little site but otherwise its not going to do the job. Simplicity is in fashion right now in terms of web design and they have done the total opposite.

I think they have gone back to the old one, both links(.co.uk/.com) load to the old one now.

This is my last Comment or View of TTF. I\'ve had enough of all this geek stuff, Im not worrying about theming or story\'s or landscaping, smoothness or what a ride is like compared to another. To just enjoy the roller coasters as fun and adrenalin filled.

The speed of your internet is what matters, not the laptop.

They haven't gone back to the old one, it;s just the DNS settings may have not propagated over various ISP's.

Kaz about how fast your internet is and not the laptop.

yess i surpose its the internet that counts not the laptop but im sure if you have a £1000 one and a £200 one there must be a difference maybe... could be wrong :P .

Not hugely, I use a Sony Vaio VGN-TX3XP while my dad has some £300 HP thing because it gets smashed about and I honestly don’t notice much difference in loading speed. Im pretty sure their must be some, only we are probably talking milliseconds.

As for the website, am I the only one who think bar the loading time its rather sexy all be it maybe a bit over complex?

I've refreshed still the old one lol, thing is I got the new one but then I was on it and i got "webpage cannot be found" and i could not get back on.

Lets go with that :D

I quite like it but yea, the front page is too busy and flash heavy. Meh.

It's a nice site. Love the simpleness and 'clean' look to the homepage. :D

Mmm not so much spelling but typos. They really should proof-read before uploading, to be honest though I think they are just beta testing this new site hence only working on .co.uk.

The whole site is just a crunk of crap. So many grammatical errors, physical errors about rides, and it's a visually ineffective site, which by the looks of it was a poor attempt at a new fangled site design.

Failed.
