    My main interests are roller coasters though I do love my thrilling and flat rides, I especially love wooden roller coasters but have only ever been able to ride the one so far.

  1. I'm very happy with the purchase as its saved a good park that needed help as they have had some real struggles in the last few years. From what I gather everyone is sceptical as they don't have the greatest track record for investment so only time will tell but hopefully this will mean some investment in rides is heading the parks way, they really need something new and to start replacing all the attractions that have been removed over the last few years having removed Excalibur and pirate adventure and g-storm being one of the parks only thrill offerings investment is sorely needed.

  3. It would be a shame to see this ride go its a real asset to the park and something the UK park industry really lacks in two aspects is water rides and immersive dark rides, I could understand from a financial point of view but having ridden it a few years back it was a highlight of the park for me and great ride.

    Old Town: Replace loggers leap with GCI woodie Timber- Starts of in the station as a wood mill work shop, exits the station into a banked turn drop passing a falling tree effect with TIMBER audio, climbs a 120ft hill half way up enters a wooden hut with sawing sounds and a saw blade at the exit the riders then u-turn into a banked drop of 120ft with head chopper effect of going through hill structure, into a large banked turn above rocky express, into a 80ft speed hill then a 60ft speed hill into a ground level banked turn to a tunnel exiting to a 45ft hill with head chopper of
  5. Outside of the UK: What an incredible time for the industry worldwide with the opening of the incredible Shanghai Disneyland with its grand castle and tron coaster and the amazing POTC, Disney has had an incredible decade as Mark9 said with Pandora and Galaxys Edge and Toy Story Land! Universal started of strong with Harry Potter, dipped considerably with the overuse of screen based rides like Kong and FF, then ended the decade epicly with Hagrids coaster, having ridden that coaster I have to say its an amazing addition, brilliant mix of coaster and story telling!
  6. Looking Back the 2010's UK: The good: I can't speak from experience sadly but from what I see and hear about Icon and Wickerman they and the swarm seem to be the only good things to come out of the 2010s to the UK. The Bad: We had the smiler incident that caused shockwaves across all of UK theme parks and then we had the incident on Drayton Manors rapids that has seen it closed ever since with The flume and Loggers leap being closed it wasn't a good decade for water rides. DBGT, whats left to say that's not already been said? I can se
  7. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dx4lLqLHgDw Has anyone seen this construction update on the beauty and the beast ride and land coming to Tokyo Disneyland? I'm super excited for this, the animatronics look like they've pulled the characters from the original film! Excited for the baymax version of alien saucers to it sounds like a cute ride and all the work starting on New Fantasyland in Tokyo Disney sea! Finally a Peter land, Tangled land and a Frozen land!
  8. I obviously mean whilst I'm out there 🙄 if the flights were £50 I would go to Japan everyday but sadly they are not, I'd much rather save for my trips and go to better theme parks out there than pay the same price for a below average one
  9. They really need to do something the last time I visited was 2016 and that was a free visit due to complaining about Derren's Browns ride being closed the first time all day and then we return and go on it and its basically a VR experience I could have had at home with my friends tickling my legs, anyway you get the gist. The UK industry as a whole needs to step up because the worldwide and European parks are knocking it out of the park and here in the UK we can't even seem to get to first base! After going to theme parks worldwide I have no desire to return to Thorpe Park and infact
  10. I hope once the CCTV has been fully installed and the training on water rescues the ride will re-open in the new year, it's a horrible tragedy but personally the children should not have been unaccompanied by an adult from the school even if one child did not want to go on the ride, otherwise she likely wouldn't have ignored the rules and stood up.

    Firstly replace Angry birds IP with Steven Universe IP and re-theme the area accordingly and a 4D Steven Universe show giving a family friendly for all ages light and fun area The jungle receives an actual Jungle themed ride! :O with Rumba Rapids refurbished the Turntables is housed inside a large tree with wire lights for overgrown roots in the tree, a new effect before the tunnel a lower bank has been dug out with Crocodile figurines sitting by the waters edges there jaws open and water sprays out, The tunnel has been re-themed to rocky facade and the land area opened up with hippo fig

    Large thrill investment On the island behind swarm a trackless dark ride opens Rebellion- After the attack the swarm launched on London the army are recruiting you to join in the fight back to reclaim London, a shooting based trackless dark ride Show house building is a huge crashed spaceship with outdoors queue line with videos and posters recruiting you to fight back against the swarm The ride vehicles travel along in pitch black with sirens going off and a door opens to thunder and rain from ceiling the ride vehicles stop as platform raises 40ft whilst rotat
  13. This is the kind of ride I was expecting back when it was announced I thought finally a high level themed indoor dark ride for a UK park, something we could be proud of! Instead we end up with VR headsets (which you could just do at home) and an ok acting/experience scene in the middle (on opening) and at the end. It's so lackluster that it beggars belief they hyped it up so much, as you said all they have to do is look at what others parks around the world are offering and see that just slapping on a VR head set and have some attendants tickle your legs does not make a theme park wo

  15. Sadly I think the key thing in their decline was DBGT, they created such a hype for something that is pretty much a sit down VR experience you could get at home with some Halloween maze like acting thrown in the middle to break it up a bit (I haven't experienced the new version, so I assume its similar but better themed for the ending) They threw alot of money into a project that just simply didn't return the profit or the hype for the park even after an essential do over attempt. Then there's the fact old town has been a dormant area for years now with Loggers left SBNO for s
