  1. If you don't want to miss what will probably be the best thing on TV this year you best consider watching Inside Number 9 tonight at 10 on BBC2
  2. Thorpe/Merlin have opened rides on inappropriate one train operation on and off peak for a variety of reasons and have been rightly derided for it. Blackpool have done the same here and are being rightly derided for it. There's not much more to it really, and if you don't agree that this is not how a park should be operating then you are probably wrong. But really I just wanted to make the 1000th post in the topic. Carry on.
  3. Good choice. It's as dull as ditchwater and I'm always amazed when I see it on people's top 10's.
  4. Great clip. Staff paid £2.20 ph, entrance £8.25! How times change! And if their prices had risen with inflation the entrance price should now be just over £20, not £50 Strange seeing buccaneer with no Vampire behind it.
  5. See you in the queue then...
  6. Looks like the UK is set to have a new holiday site opening, which will incorporate a Gulliver's theme park. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-38992235 Probably not the most exciting development for those of us over 7 years old, but still nice to see something new.
  7. I'm lost for words about how soft the world is. It might be a 'family orientated' attraction to an extent, but these are real things from history and are themes covered in the dungeons. We going to pretend it didn't exist now because it's not all fluffy?
  8. I don't think the camp can, but the hotel facilities are free for all to use. And you should, they are great!
  9. My biggest tip for making the most would be to download the park app and use the live queue times to avoid the long waits. I found the queues varied hugely and seemingly at random through the day from area to area, and the posted queue times were incredibly accurate. Even on the very busy days I went the major coasters dropped to near walk on occasionally.
  10. I wonder if the work they are doing to Buccaneer will stop the 'necessity' to have the stupid adult on the edge seats rule?
  11. Woman hurts foot on slide at Tayto Park, wants to sue the world. http://m.independent.ie/irish-news/courts/woman-suing-tayto-park-after-breaking-her-ankle-on-twister-slide-35440890.html
  12. Seems Disney want to take full ownership of Disneyland Paris, could be good for the state of the park in the long term.
  13. ASA wouldn't give a crap about departments if the company knows. The company has responsibility for its internal communication. We'll have to wait and see what happens, but another delay would be embarrassing and another attraction falsely advertised as suggested would be unforgivable. Again.
  14. It appears from this image that the seat she was in is the empty one on the row behind, which looks like the restraint is still down with that yellow belt in place. Suggests she may have slip out of the middle of the restraint rather than it having opened. The gap between each shoulder does look quite wide to me.
  15. Nasty incident (and footage) from China. 13 year old girl dies being flung from what appears to be a topspin knock off.
