  1. Surprisingly intense, especially for a family park. Whilst it probably isn’t the best thing since sliced bread, it sure looks fun and is hopefully a worthy addition to the park.
  2. Pity they haven’t also decided to add a modest RMC and bizarre yet interesting Mack coaster to their line up though. Thorpe’s recent decisions have been truly bizarre. Then again, I guess they have for some time now.
  3. I managed to ride Flight Of The Skylion yesterday. It’s certainly a truly unique attraction to the park and the U.K, a bit like a cross between a simulator and a 4D movie but I guess that’s what a flying theatre is. The pre-show was simple but funny enough, mostly explaining the process. The actual ride however was surprisingly impressive and the setting works out remarkably well. The ceiling was the only potential setback, but I personally consider this one of the best additions at the park to date. One could say it’s Lego’s take on Flight Of Passage, but I personal
  4. Zeus’s renovations are fascinating. I must confess touring my 2019 visit, the attraction was enjoyable and pleasant enough but was certainly missing that “wow” factor somewhere, compared to say Troy or Wodan. I haven’t done a proper GG woodie yet, but this all looks promising. The concept art for Toutatis looks splendid and should hopefully match the greatness of other lovely additions in the park.
  5. Fingers crossed the Ultimate may actually again one day and the park has a future compared to Livingston Leisure running the place into the ground!
  6. So despite being in no major rush to return after my first visit, five years later and I went back! Apocalypse was great aside from only 2/5 towers working. Will be criminal if this gets removed! Adventure Cove area looks great and should be even better when everything there has opened. Park very busy and did have some kind of atmosphere for certain. Not sure when I’ll be back but it was a very mixed one.
  7. Very disappointed in Merlin doing this. Because they’ve just plagiarised Universal from when they opposed the Skyplex being built in Orlando.
  8. I’m so glad they are finally getting their “long awaited” expansion. Efteling is one of my favourite European parks and hopefully they can broaden the lineup whilst retaining their charm and character that’s been largely prominent in their 69 years of existence.
  9. I mean it does,but on average at around 10 mph, maybe 20 on a good day.
  10. On a positive note, it’s different and great to be pushing more towards events outside of Halloween which should have always been a thing. Even “regional” American parks do non Halloween events. I remember seeing food stands and the like at Cedar Point on one of my visits.
  11. I think the change to Tiny Truckers is an improvement, because it teaches the kids what the M25 is realistically like when to drive on.
  12. Interesting development, especially after the construction of Monster. Grona are acing real life RCT scenarios.
  13. Here’s a POV for the ride if anyone’s interested. Watch if you dare, or avoid if you don’t want spoilers. Ride looks ok, maybe better than expected. It’s better than Charlie, especially when you consider how small it is but obviously not blockbuster level. New area looks alright, but areas come across as looking flat or perhaps unimaginative. It’s better than the last few years, but still looked the best during its early Cloud Cuckoo years.
  14. I think there’s a lot of family thrill coasters that would actually suit the park. Including (but not limited to the following): 1/ Gerst family launch similar to Pegasus/Fire Chaser Express 2/ GCI woodie, more akin to Heidi the ride (maybe Wickerman) 3/ Vekoma “next gen” so like Lech/Aqualantis but maybe less intense 4/ Mack launch like Slinky Dog Dash 5/ That “family focused” RMC concept We will just have to see I guess.
