  1. Well it is a new era! So what is the safest way people would like to hold a meet up? Shoot some ideas at me and I'm sure we can all work something out.
  2. Your words, they cut me to the soul. Hopefully they incorporate it into theming but I can't see a move as it was realistically an extreme kids ride so not family friendly in the 2020's compared to the 90's
  3. I'm going to ignore, crowd levels etc and go with disability friendly. Least stressful Disneyland Paris Blackpool (this has apparently changed recently) Flamingoland (Only stressful part was I forgot to take my walking stick so got painful) Most stressful Drayton Manor Alton Towers Chessington (Gets nerve wracking leaving a wheelchair/walking stick not close to ride platform) Fire depths of hell Thorpe Park Never will I go to Thorpe Park again assuming that I can have an ounce of independance with just a stick and end up still standing in a queue for Colosuss for 30+ minutes just because I felt that I was good enough to do without a wheelchair. Which defeated the point of I am using the disability pass due to mobility not because I HAVE to be in a wheelchair the whole time. @Benin can confirm most these stories hopefully!
  4. I thought this would open in my mid twenties, now I'm 30 and its looking like mid 30's.... # Theories are welcome as it seems like this is a fever dream.
  5. I better be invited. My plans will be whatever Benin has planned as he is my wheels.
  6. Hi, I'm Holly, I've only been banned once or twice and I keep introducing myself here saying that I'm back. I like trains. Football Serial killers I have a Business Degree that I don't use. I also like to annoy @Benin frequently and sometimes @Mark9. Toodles, see you in another year or so
  7. @Han30 honestly same with Det, I just can't in case it gets stuck. I'm proud to say coaster wise, basically been on no breakdowns, RNR at Paris was alright as the music kept playing. Water rides however, just don't go on one with me. Most my breakdowns have been water rides, lift hills, boats piling up and all that. Best flat was Rocky, 40+ rides in one day, get on one and it jerks forward and stops. We waited for the engineers and kept the ride host company. No point in trying to get on anything else, capacity day and 30+ heat so nah.

    2019 Season

    Went for the first time in years, most of what you guys have covered I agree with. It's all just a bit run down and looks dirty. The most shocking thing for me is not being able to stand for long periods of time and having to join the fastrack queue for Colossus and having to wait for 20 mins. I understand why they have changed the RAP to minimise waiting times for people who physically need to use it but basically saying to me that I need to physically be in a wheelchair to use it to the full is ridiculous. Plus a £50 deposit for a wheelchair is fantastic for people who can afford it. I won't be going back for a while, wanted a nice pain free day out and ended up pissed off and in a lot of pain. Might seem like a stupid thing to moan about but I use the RAP because I am unable to stand for long periods of time, I shouldn't have to rely on someone to wheel me around the park. Best part of the day was seeing a staff member shoot down another guest who was complaining that we got let up Infernos volcano first.
  9. 1 point for bad pun. I for one am looking forward to visiting next year to see all the new win things being built.
  10. I was joking, I promise. I have a dry sense of humour and I find not everyone get it! Absolutely shout me if you are Reading way, I'll let you know when the best times to go anywhere, not even just pizzahut. The thing with Crealy is that when you have small children then it's a great park for just that, families and creds really.

    Just showing everyone I'm alive, it helps very now and then.
  12. Ngl all I got out of your report was that Readings PizzaHut is bad, when did you last go? Cause I think you will find it's a lot better. Glad you enjoyed Crealy(ish). Always went to one of them as a kid and it's good little fun family park. Plus no shade to my Mr 9

    They shouldn't. Just sayin'
  14. Pics or it didn't happen. I'm rather disappointed to hear that once again Loggers will be closed. Makes the excepctations go up for when it eventually re opens.

    ^ it's interesting to see where people are after so many years, really happy you're doing well! I on the other hand pull pints and live off my student loan for my food and drink needs. Catch me in a few years hopefully I'll be a solicitor by then.
  16. I forgot living in student halls that I live with students, who get drunk, scream and make loads of noise. I have a room that is in the courtyard. I need a decent night sleep.
  17. It's all about strategy, marketing is a complicated subject to talk about because it relies on opinions. It's up to the person running the small account to decide what's important to show and what's not.
  18. See I disagree with you about the general public, from a marketing point of view it's actually genius and is most likely working. Show the GP that improvements are being made, however small, to cover up the fact that nothing major is going on other than general maintenance. It's simple psychology, show them that something is happening and they are more likely to believe that it's all major happenings and want to visit. From our point of view I can see how frustrating it is and we know the state of disrepair a lot of rides and scenery are in but it's intstalling public confidence in the fact that they are doing something. After the past few years they've had I agree with the strategy, instead of making a big deal out of loads of things it's just focusing on the little things.
  19. Messaged me basically saying come back so have! We can all blame him
  20. Please to see my awards still going after all these years watch out guys hopefully I'll reclaim my position as host of the TPM awards.
