The Daily Mail reports "Lightwater Valley is one of the most dangerous parks in the UK. With 5 B&M's and 2 death-trap, I mean 2 Intamin coasters this park surely deserves to be closed down as soon as possible. In the last 2 years 2000 people have died at the hands of Slammer, the Parks main ride which is a B&M Floorless coaster. It has 12 loops and has bought upset to millions of people in the UK"

:shock:

Please read! The *quote* above is not a quote from the Daily Mail newspaper, the user simply did this as a joke.

Thanks, Sarah

I don't think it's a clever idea to 'quote' from a newspaper like that Fury, it can actually be considered slander.

If you're going to put your ideas across - do them in a way that can be clearly understood, and don't disguise such sarcastic comments as someone else's :roll:

I have edited your post to avoid future confusion...

Thanks muchly,
Sarah

Problem is, what I said is completely obvious that its a joke. I doubt any writer in the Daily mail knows what a B&M is anyway. Im sorry for any offence caused but at the end of the day the 'quote' was meant in jest.

I do not even think they own a B&M.

Yeah its true. The octapus has replaced the orbitor. Acording to the brochure it is a "spinning and whirling sensation" Sounds intressting.

Orbitor was great like a big green bogey the first ride you saw as you entered the park :!:

Orbiter was the Schwarzcopf "Apollo" ride that was owned by Bemboms, put in margate with pods going up the side, then changed toa chair o planes type thing, painted orange called The Heatwave, then painted green again to Lightwater

I imagine thats theone going to Loudoun

Pretty bland ride, it was better with the pods on the side

Someone on ATA said the octopus ride will be a Topple Tower.

If thats true then all they need is a brand new coaster and it would be a top park to visit again.
