  1. So it may not be Paramount (may need a topic re-name), but this park looks to still be alive after ITV (and a number of others) have signed a deal to be involved with the park. Very interesting to see if this does happen, how it will turn out. Merlin will be following this closely - it may give them the kick they need! https://www.theguardian.com/media/2019/apr/29/ready-for-the-corrie-coaster-itv-signs-up-to-uks-disneyland
  2. Went on it today, German efficiency at its best I must say. Queue moved so quickly, only queued for 10 minutes including paying which for a Saturday night I thought was brilliant! The ride was awesome, faster than I expected. Really please I got to tick this one off my list!
  3. From some of the images it still looks like there is a round turntable next to the lift hill (the lift hill drops slightly at the end of the incline) but I could be wrong. Mainly going off the images on our favourite news website and there is also a video showing the lift working: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3869782/Tragedy-Australian-theme-park-four-people-CRUSHED-death-Thunder-River-Rapids-water-ride-flips-over.html
  4. To me it looks like the turntable may have stopped but the lift kept on going forcing one of the boats to rise up on the other. Sensor failure possibly. Very sad for everyone involved.
  5. The Daily Mail are at it again. It is just laughable! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3569610/Horrifying-moment-riders-heard-screaming-stuck-upside-half-hour-new-Alton-Towers-rollercoaster.html
  6. I have been to the one in Europa park a couple of times and have enjoyed it as an experience. The food is ok, nothing special for the price they were charging and with the ordering system and just wanting to see more items come down the rails you loose track of how much you have ordered, always struggle to stop myself ordering more!!! I'm sure it will be a hit and it's nice to see one in the UK!
  7. Didn't get to spend as much time at the fair as I had hoped so only have a few photo's. The event was a large as always however there seemed to be more duplicate rides this year than previously (2 boosters, 2 waltzers, 2 dogems, 2 twisters to name a few). For the first time I can remember there wasn't a Top Spin and the Wild Mouse coaster was also absent. This may because the fair was late this year due to roadworks on the high-street and the rides are booked elsewhere. New this year was a great Starflyer which attracted a lot of attention and prices were pretty consistent at £5 for the bigger rides. It was a great fair once again and would recommend it to anyone who is able to get there next year!
  8. Had a look round the fair at Milton Keynes but didn't have the time to go on anything. The prices seem very reasonably priced I must admit and they had some decent rides. Glad you had a good time! The annual fair in Loughborough starts on Wednesday and runs through Saturday. If anyone goes Friday and Saturday they bump up the prices heavily (up to £6 for many of the larger rides including the Wildmouse coaster, Top-Scan and Star-Flyer. The rides change most years so I have no idea what to expect but every year I have been so far its been fantastic, so many rides there you could spend a fair amount of money to do them all. Will try and get some pictures for you guys this weekend!
  9. Just for future reference on the subject of traveller days I was there on Sunday. After all I had read on the subject I was a bit worried about it and how it would affect our day but I must admit they really weren't any trouble at all and we had a great day. Yes they may look intimidating and congregate in large groups around the towers but if you just get on with your day it won't be affected. The park had clearly prepared well, security was absolutely everywhere around the towers and ride entrances so you felt perfectly safe regardless. Now I've experienced it I couldn't care less whether it was a travellers day or not, we may have been lucky not to see any trouble but we had such a good time anyway that I would happily go to scarefest on the same day next year!

    Scarefest

    Just booked tickets for Scarefest with the maze combi ticket. Never been before and was wondering how strict they are with the maze ticket times. When booking I had to chose a 15 minute slot which seems strange considering there are two mazes. Thanks.
  11. God I feel old, my childhood coaster was the runaway train which the stinger replaced
  12. The only place I have ever seen it advertised is on the big queue boards. I think its at the bottom underneath all the queue times.
  13. Had a ride on Arthur last week and for a family attraction it is very well executed. It's not quite Disney standard but then again I never expected it too be but the atmosphere and level of detail they have put into the whole area is superb. Not sure about the locker system within the queue-line though, seems more trouble than its worth. Overall a great addition to the park!
  14. Mixed thoughts, I think generally it looks a lot nicer (especially the removal of the big head people). Though I think the map could be a little bit more detailed and that space is wasted with the roller-coaster designs. Somehow they have made the park look even smaller than it is. So my view is definitely an improvement, but still a bit flawed if it is to be used as an actual "map".
  15. Yes, it comes to Loughborough funfair every year. Once it gets up to full speed its just insane, then they through the strobe lighting at you to make it even more mental. Bit of a ball crusher as well.
