  1. Would be a bit bizarre on a new ride for them to fit restraints that haven't been used for over a decade.
  2. I've seen a considerable amount of comments on this on social media from the 'general public'. However it's being reported, it looks like it's done a decent job.

    The Smiler

    So when Holiday World wanted to build a launched wing-rider, Intamin must have been their only option because Furious Baco? Intamin and other manufacturers are perfectly capable of innovating and adapting for their clients needs.

    The Smiler

    Stealth, Colossus, Thirteen and (at a push) Rita average roundabout the same throughputs as The Smiler, some of them more a lot of the time. So no, not really.
  5. You also praised Drayton for extending their opening hours, I'd just like to add Thorpe did this on Saturday as well.
  6. That's not an interpretation... A cobra roll is only called as such because of the way the element looks. If you wanted to break it down you could choose to see it as an Immelmann loop into a dive loop or something. It's still 2 inversions either way.
  7. Cheetah Hunt's were really underwhelming for me. I don't know if it was the speed or the way the curves had been designed but it felt so pedestrian.

    Fright Nights 2015

    I remember when Jordan's 'sources' also told him X had been *signed off* to open for February only for it to open a month later and not have its 3rd train finished until June. FANBOY WAR.
  9. More extremely limited-throughput rides with limited lifespans targeting the same limited market that gained Thorpe most of its current issues?
  10. Really bizarre scepticism... 'Only two rides, only $500 million of investment jeez not good enough!'. I doubt there was much demand for a Cars Land before it happened either and that's universally lauded as one of the best theme park areas in the world.
  11. And then we wonder why you visit so much...
  12. I advise you don't search for Disney Parks on Google Maps then.
  13. I really like the look of both. Would be happy for one to come to the UK.

    Wicker Man

    If an RMC was launched it would hardly be a gimmick because that has no selling point to the general public. It would just be a way for the ride to gain sufficient speed to last a decent length circuit, which is surely something everyone would want no?
  15. That wouldn't be a reason for something to close for a whole weekend, they would have had staff in before opening for all that.

    ...but I thought X was signed off in January?

    Argh with so much work I forgot to post on here. I'll make sure I do my Thursday-Saturday this evening, though whoever's next feel free to start yours obviously.

    Apologies for lateness, first time I’ve actually gotten to a computer and not been on the go. First record you ever bought… The whole album really, but this is always a great start. I listened to others previously obviously, but this was the first thing I heard that made me want it straight away and realise that I could actually just go and buy it myself, mad thought back in that day. Hottest record in the world right now… Taking that literally this is what I listened to today, a work hangover evidently. Music video's a bit too 'err...' to link to. A guilty pleasure… The moment where Pluk starts to regret the entire topic.
  20. Did you get that impression when it was announced they wouldn't be open on time?
