  1. I know what you mean, the resin definitely doesn’t make them anything premium. But the durability of them is what I love, you can do anything to them and they don’t stop working!
  2. Yeah those signs look really good. I only went to BPB for the first time in 2019 and thought the car park looked really rough. So definitely much better for first impressions now!
  3. Alongside Theme Parks, the other thing that I love are G-Shocks - anyone else got any? Latest addition to my collection is the stealth black GA-2100 - got given it as a Christmas present from my girlfriend who had to get it imported from Italy as everywhere was sold out still! Screen can be hard to read at times but overall I love the look!
  4. Thought I might as well introduce myself as I’ve been sort of a lurker on the site for years and now thought I should try and be a bit more of an active member. - so hello! I’m Jordan from Dorset, I used to live in Addlestone, just down the road from Thorpe Park and have been to there countless amounts of times. For 18 years in a row I held a MAP so have spent most of my time going to Merlin theme parks. A couple of years ago I decided not to renew it and try out some different places, since then I’ve been to Europa Park, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Paultons Park and plan on going to
  5. All booked for Blackpool in the summer - went a couple of years ago for the first time at Halloween so looking forward to going in (hopefully!) nicer weather. Was also going to go to Flamingo Land whilst up that direction but they aren’t opening thrill rides until after 21st June which is such a shame, was really looking forward to the Colossus clone!
  6. Thinking of going to Drayton Manor for the first time this summer as it will be somewhere different. Anyone got any tips or things to be aware of?
  7. My sister and I actually found it much easier to shoot the targets and preferred it to what it was before.
  8. If it is Underground themed could it possibly be about Jack The Ripper seeing as he murdered people in the Whitechapel area and that's the code name.
  9. The good thing is that I'm A Celebrity fits in will with Calypso Quay and what's left of Ranger County as its a jungle theme.
  10. For a while now there hasn't been a separate backwards queue and both go into the main queue. They still put times up for forwards and backwards but they are always the same time due to the mixed queue.
  11. The ride in itself I think is actually good and I like to go on it. The only thing I don't like about it is it's location where it is plonked in front of X. Thats not a problem with the ride though that's just a poor decision by the park.
  12. The theme of Ranger County is really similar to Calypso Quay. They might as well make them just one area now that the carousel has gone.
  13. The website is down again, how can I book the tickets for FN?? I have a premium MAP
  14. They have MHFS car out in Nemesis Inferno's shop so I don't think they worry about people climbing on it too much really.
  15. I know this is said every year but I would much rather they spend the closed season on doing up old rides to make them look new again. Although this may not increase visitor numbers that much it would definitely improve the experience that the customers receive at the park. Also, with the ticket prices and other prices in the park being so high it is hard to see as a customer where the money is going as some places, such as Canada Creek, look a bit run down so it may then change the opinions of customers on park pricing strategies.

    They have always said that you need to pull the top bar down so it just touches your shoulder but, the other week when I was there the host and operator were insisting it had to be pulled down firmly on you because of 'new rules' which then made the ride really painful. The hosts were going along leaning on everybody's to get them down as far as they could go.
  17. Its 200 Hectares / 495 acres

    I wish it did 4, at the moment you only really get one full speed. The 1st is getting up to full, 2nd is full, 3rd is slowing down. By having four you would get two full speed ones
  19. What's this about the Flying Fish??
  20. Business Studies = A Religious Studies = A Physics = A Chemistry = A Biology = A ICT = B English Lit = B English Lang = B Geography = B Food Tech = B Maths = B German = E Happy with everything, I don't mind that much about German because I only took it to fill in a gap but wish I could've done better in it.
  21. They had one last year at Thorpe Park in 360
  22. On Alton Towers snapchat they have been putting pictures of a preview building of the Enchanted Village thats opening next year. I will put pictures up later if I have time. I don't think anyone else has said about this yet, I can't see it anywhere.
  23. I like it when the park is empty because its different to how it normally is and you feel like you have the place all to yourself.
  24. There is a big hose near the lift hill to the right. I don't know how long thats been there
  25. It didn't win by much so again shows that even after all these year Nemesis is still really popular
