  1. The trouble with long cred runs that involve a tonne of driving is if you don't share it you can get super affected by it. Especially when most of the drives in between American parks are stupidly long. Doing 2 full weeks of it in Germany wasn't fun come the end of it. I liked Hershey, definitely good to see love for Lightning Racer.
  2. Just spent 2 days at a Flood event. The Environment Agency bods showing some interest in flooding was surprising given they spent most of it tooting the horns of people for reasons that weren't disclosed. #FloodFamily
  3. If you like roller coasters Cedar Point is better. If you like theme parks Europa Park is better. Taking the Golden Ticket Awards as serious is silly.
  4. Considering the original Spookslot had a hanged man in it... That video isn't much. Seems to be more of an update of the original based on that clip rather than something brand new? But might be more paying homage to it rather than anything.
  5. Think I did Revenge of the Mummy (Florida) 10 times in a day after some constant use if the single rider queue. Done similar numbers for RnRC at Paris (7 times in 1 hour, before the park had anything else worth riding) and 8 times for Raptor in Gardaland. Inferno used to get a lot of rides too when single rider was a thing. Just walk off and straight back in sometimes. Glorious days those were. Gonna discount rides done during Exclusive Ride Times because that's cheating. I don't think I could be bothered these days to constantly re-ride things. Guess it depends on what it is though. But even going back to Liseberg I didn't go on Helix loads of times, even with using the disabled entrance.
  6. I like how they've given it a rusty paint job to hide the actual rust that the ride will eventually gain after years of no maintenance whatsoever.
  7. That free food for Lorikeets will last until they're all too fat to fly. Again.
  8. Some would say he didn't want to be associated with it as soon as he was no longer contractually obligated to promote it.
  9. New hotel officially announced: https://www.efteling.com/nl/blog/nieuws/20220406-efteling-grand-hotel I'm not a fan of the location, but it'll look fab.
  10. My first view of this park (after my car breaking on the way there. Stressful in a different manner) was a chained up elephant. So fun. That day was very good. But not having to suffer the terrible operations for more than 5 minutes each ride helped immensely. Farup and Djurs Sommarland are both incredibly relaxing parks. Hours of fun in the playgrounds alone. Most of the Scandinavian parks are super relaxing to be fair. I'll admit I'm dreading going back to Phantasialand with a wheelchair. Plus leaving it unattended in Bakken wasn't pleasant.
  11. You're right in that the ride choice doesn't make sense mind. It would be a first for Mack as they don't have a wing coaster design at the moment (Lost Gravity doesn't count). Mr9 is right as there's strong rumours about Legoland Deutschland getting something similar.
  12. Big Bob Jones must receive sufficient levels of sacrifice.
  13. Now they just need to fix the Saw lift.
  14. Can't decide on the theme when they probably haven't decided what IP they want to waste money on (presumably because SwArM wAs A fAiLuRe). Could've had a far more substantial layout too. Which is disappointing. Could still be an Intamin too. Taron's trains are basically the Mack ones.
  15. Chop your legs off. Not only will you fit within the height limit but then you're eligible for a RAP. As with most things, rides are ergonomically designed for the "average" person. Those outside those points (especially 6'8, that is stupid tall) will get missed off as you truly cannot cater for every single body type or size.
