    Think with the luck of the English half term not being same time as the Dutch worst you might see is 90 for the biggest attractions (Baron/Symbolica/etc)... But there's plenty of stuff to do at Efteling anyway...

    Hocus Pocus Hall

    To be fair, the 2000s did bring us Fury, so can't be entirely bad... Just, slightly less than utter awfulness given the loss of... Pretty much most of the park...

    'Old' Chessington being a 2003 addition makes me cry...

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    Enough salt on here to season all the chippies on the promenade...

    Hocus Pocus Hall

    The writing was on the wall for ages wasn't it? Mothballed for years and the lack of 3D glasses the final nail... Sigh... EDIT - This is however my favourite piece of marketing from Merlin - https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-56579148.html

    Europa Park

    I wasn't sold on the ride portion until the dash under the legs, but of course they are extremely limited to what they could do what with the lack of space... Station and queueline are fantastic mind, and a single rider queue as well...

    Alton Towers General Discussion

    I don't think anywhere in America (aside from Disney, obviously) is particularly great for throughputs, nor are they completely terrible, just... average... Six Flags have a really poor reputation but the quality varies drastically...

    Next Roller Coaster

    That entire section of the park needs burning to the ground though... A quick check shows Europe only have 38 wooden coasters in operation! 1 is currently being RMC'd and there's probably 2 others with Bandit I'd be fine with seeing redone (Anaconda at Walygator and Coaster Express)... Probably be a few parks seeing what the Robin Hood conversion does but if Wildfire hasn't got the tongues wagging over here there must be a fair charge on getting it built at Vekoma... I guess though in terms of 'weird' stuff Mack, Gerst and Vekoma are likely cheaper options...

    Presumably few parks in Europe have thought "we MUST have one", perhaps budget, space and maintenance are major issues, and the local area is far more abundant with fantastic manufacturers who have been in the game a lot longer... We also lack lots of old woodies to butcher, so any would be built from scratch...

    The only really good thing about the Halloween trips is the night riding... Some great memories of 8pm Nemesis in the rain...

    That mini airtime hill before the helix (on Helix) has more airtime in it than every ride at BPB...

    That's a difference and a half...
