    The Six Flags Thread

    They used to own Darien Lake... What a weird choice... Only two actual parks on that list, Frontier City is a strange choice as well I'd say but I dunno how built up Ooooooooooooooklahoma is these days...

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    The entrance feature looks so tacky Shame that the station building is a bit bland though...

    Surprised no one posted this, Phantasialand got a letter off a 9 year old girl wanting to be an engineer, so they invited her along for a look at the morning checks on Taron...

    Jobs At Chessington

    Assuming it's not changed (was it really 11 years ago I started there?); that is correct.. 16 to host and 18 to operate...

    Alton Towers General Discussion

    Funny how the person who originally (publically) brought the 'issue' to Towers' attention has an opposing statement from park management though isn't it?

    Gonna restore this topic to life as it's the general one... TEA figures are out! http://www.teaconnect.org/images/files/TEA_268_653730_180517.pdf Europe's ones: That's a fair old increase for DLP due to the 25th anniversary... And other important bits:

    Alton Towers General Discussion

    It's not helped by the personal point scoring that seems to be going around a LOT of Twitter accounts recently... I'm not a fan of Sanbrooke or TPW but another account did basically grass them up for the image in question (why I'm not sure, I'm 100% certain Towers keeps tabs on plenty of relevant media accounts themselves), for some reason... I've unfollowed the account as a result because it wasn't needed to be done in such a public setting (if Towers REALLY cared about it, they would have contacted Sanbrooke directly to discuss it) and for such blatant point scoring (it's not the first time I've seen them do such nonsense)... It's sad to see the UK scene becoming really petty these days... Regarding cameras on rides, it's gotta be a common sense thing right? A flat out ban on all rides is just an over-reaction (so expect Merlin to do this) and will not be a great sign when someone gets berated for taking pictures of their kid on Sea Dragons...
