  1. Is there any way they're turning a profit on it even if it runs at capacity at £2.50 a ticket?

    Paultons Park

    Well it's bigger than I was expecting! Looks perfect for Paultons.
  3. The website suggests you are right, I guess Vortex is in old Scorpion position then, if Claw is in Vortex's old spot. They've shuffled loads about this year, including putting the dragon ride on an arcade roof for some reason!
  4. Claw has moved to where vortex was, Vortex has gone apparently. A shame, I quite liked it, but it never seemed popular. You'd think Scorpion was closer to death than Vortex though, and would have been a better option if one had to go.
  5. Is a metal rope not a cable?!
  6. India - 14 year old boy dies after being 'caught in the wheels of a roller coaster ride', oddly and slightly graphically worded article. Not clear what the ride actually was, but I'm thinking it was really a round ride of some sort from the description of mechanics of injury. India (again) - The worlds crappiest looking drop towers has a moment of uncharacteristic excitement when 'ropes' (possibly quite literally ropes, and not just a poor translation) snapped sending a gondola crashing to the ground injuring 12. The park involved has shut indefinitely. Probably for the best.
  7. I've seen very little about it anywhere, surprisingly. Is it supposed to be any good? How does it compare to their previous Fright Nights escape room effort?
  8. Anyone know when the worst of the school trips hits? People at work are planning to go on 21st of this month and I'm gearing the worst...
  9. Even the might Wodan starts with one of the wretched things!
  10. Designers need to stop slow adverse camber turns. It's not big, it's not clever, it's just weird. Other than that, looks incredible m not the same ride at all, is it?
  11. Back to the Fireball incident which rumbles along. Those injured and the family of the deceased are going after KMG which accusations they were aware of the defect which caused the incident (insufficient thickness on the arms) but failed to share this with ride owners. If they are found to be true KMG could be in a lot of trouble.
  12. Really really interesting, great channel. Just watched the roofs one too, he has some very insightful tales to tell.
  13. Darwin, Australia. Two left with minor injuries when arm of travelling.octopus fails and crashes to the floor. Photos show the ride looks to be made of meccano. M&Ds, Scotland. Inspector who signed Tsunami off as safe without properly checking it was safe before it derailed and nearly killed children somehow manages not to go to jail. Incredible. Montana, USA. Not really a ride accident, but an interesting report. Ride worker convicted of multiple sexual assaults commited while checking the safety straps between riders legs. Dirty boy.

    2019 Season

    The timing of this suggests it's probably closer to have fallen down than been taken down! Why would they do it now, and with such temporary looking fencing looking so crap unless they really had to?

    Quantum

    Quantum is one of the best rides on the park, genuinely miss it when it's not there.
