  1. Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    Definitely one of the biggest factors. Times have changed and with h&s gone mad and complaints/suings taking place due to the most minor of things it certainly didn't help. Using Pleasure Beach as an example, the documentary aired in the 90s even showed a crash and all parties involved were pretty calm and just got treated and got on with things. See below from about 16 mins in...
  2. Wicker Man - New for 2018

    I don't think that is correct as the test video shown had 12 rows on the one train being tested making 24 per train.
  3. Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    New animated POV released of Icon... Apart from hitting a few other rides looks awesome!
  4. Add me too please
  5. Adventure Island - Southend

    And hilarious how the time machine restraints get stuck after every cycle but they continue to get an engineer and reopen it everytime for the entire day!
  6. Awesome day in a very chilly and wet Southend with the rides doing some very bizarre things. Great to see you all and meet some new faces A nice video clip of one of those bizarre things...
  7. New for 2018 - Tiger Rock

    And being Merlin they have to mention its a "first"... Again!
  8. Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    Awesome flyover of Icon and the Pleasure Beach...
  9. Wicker Man - New for 2018

    Haha, did wonder how long before they would have to take the video down!
  10. Wicker Man - New for 2018

    Doesn't look very interesting, not very fast at all, although it does seem they have released it slowly from the lift as part of the testing, so expect it will be ever so slightly faster. Still looks disappointing overall though.
  11. Alton Towers General Discussion

    I would praise them for this change of decision but quite frankly shouldn't have got to the point of needing to change, as it was simply ludicrous. They might JUST get my custom now.
  12. It is fully included as part of the premium Pass as its not a separate event this year. The park is simply open from 10 till 10. Standard annual passes will not be accepted on Fridays or Saturdays during august, so there will likely be a charge for those days which hasn't been confirmed yet. If you go on the last week of July or any Thursday in August when it's also open till 10 there won't be a restriction on either pass.
  13. Park Music

    There have also been lots of "dead" areas that have returned over the last year so hopefully they have done some work over closed season with other quiet/dead areas. It is probably in their best interest to have it working what with the focus on the new soundtrack and most of it being put in place by the end of last season.
  14. Nemesis

    I hope they don't overhaul the gun and target system to that of Tomb Blaster, it's dreadful.
  15. Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    Build a custom modern wild mouse with the same layout in its remembrance. Wouldn't be the same but would be a nice touch. Then again perhaps just put it to bed and build something different there.
