  1. Octopus Gardens would have made quite a nice scare zone area... Just sayin'... But in all seriousness, the main Lost City path from Colossus' final turn, up over the bridge and down to the entrance is surely the obvious place to put one. More spacious, and totally avoidable if you don't want to go in. Of course this still leaves the question of theme and execution, but I'd say that if it was kept simple and clear it would be hard to do badly. There are dozens of potential themes to explore which are simple to communicate, require little in the way of props, and could be done straight-up scar
  2. Best thing to do with it IMO would be leave it for now, then tear it out as part of a remodel of Neptune's Kingdom / removal of the beach. If they absolutely had to have a ride around there rather than open space, they could then put whatever the ride happened to be closer to the beach, creating more space near X and then have the much requested open space / picnic-ey bit where the beach currently is. Possibly even demo the Megastore and build a new one as part of the new area next to the dome, where Wet Wet Wet currently is. This would also mean a wider path to Swarm... Everybody wins, and we
  3. You make some interesting points there, pluk. I agree to a certain extent - as I said at the end of my original post there is still some good stuff out there if, as you suggested, you know where to look. I also agree that the corporate stranglehold faced by so many doesn't help the situation - this is partly the issue with WDW as I mentioned. I believe Imagineering are still capable of coming up with good ideas - Cars Land was still quite formulaic but at least on a grander scale - but TDO aren't willing to finance that kind of thing for the Florida parks, it would seem in recent years. In gam

    MTV are bangin' out the tunes today - had S Club 7, Westlife and All Saints... into the modern day now though, they're playing Pon de Replay! I'd genuinely forgotten the existence of this song. Edit... I realised Carly Rae Jepsen's album Kiss came out a few days ago, out of curiosity more than anything I've just stuck it on in Spotify. I'm only up to track 6, but so far it's actually pretty good! Some quite decent sounding songs, will take a few listens to know what I really think of it but it at least shows some promise so far
  5. Windseekers are utterly pointless rides anyway, hence any attempt to work out answers to any of this is hopeless Gotta feel for those people though, 4 hours must have been nasty.
  6. I’m scared. I have been scared for some time now. The cause of my fear and apprehension is quite simple, but also quite worrying: it seems to me that creativity is a dying art. The lightbulb moment which made me realise this came at a bus stop in London recently. As the advert banner scrolled over from another pair of trainers from some sports brand or other, the poster which replaced it piqued my interest: “Loserville”. Being me, an ad for a new musical generally excites some interest. I was sad to note it was opening in the former home of a great now-closed show – Chicago – but variety is
  7. The Dark Knight Rises It has to be said, totally amazing! I had the fun experience of the 9-hour, 3-film marathon at Odeon Leicester Square which made it even more epic, but this film is just total quality. Certainly the most comic-ey of the three, with more all-out good guys vs bad guys fight scenes than The Dark Knight, mostly as a result of Bane being a more physical adversary compared to the mind games of Joker. That's not a criticism in any way though - between the three of them there is a great mix of mystique, tension, psychological games and all-out action. Although everyone knew it
  8. Takes the ****ing piss. Good news: if they lose they'll be left utterly destitute and fall into a very dark, poverty-filled financial abyss. Excellent.
  9. The reviews of Leviathan seem to actually be saying it rides very well. Seems like it feels must faster than it looks and actually gives some ejector as well as floater on the shallower speed hills. Can't believe this actually needs saying again, but yeah... Judging by videos... Etc etc. Sigh.
  10. Great update from Inside The Magic today, after Disney gave a select few a behind-the-scenes tour of New Fantasyland. The article contains some interesting info: http://www.insidethe...orld-expansion/ But even better, is this video! It's looking gorgeous, and restoring just a smidgen of faith in TDO Hit 1080p, and enjoy in full-screen glory.
  11. Well... That was pretty much the intention. It's a retrospective of 100 years of their films. Why should that have a story? Future years of the show will probably slow the pace and focus on fewer films for longer, because they won't be trying to put in a sample of 100 years. That's a big ask for a 20 minute show. But you have to put this in context - this is the first new night show Universal have created in 10 years, and only the fourth in 20-something years. They have authorisation to run this every night, which with the restrictions they have is a huge achievement. They've invested to put
  12. Oh Universal, you do know how to put on a good show
  13. Well the labels have the Wing Coaster code on them, so that's good enough for me And sshhh Mark you love it!
  14. On supports and footers, we can only assume Given Cedar Fair don't have one yet we could make a fairly sound guess they won't want to be left behind for too long, given how popular these have been so far. Cedar Point are getting a new coaster in 2013, perhaps this is it.
