  1. Whilst we all wait impatiently for the park season to begin (whenever that may well be), an eager fan sets up shop ready for opening.
  2. So Disneyland Paris has now officially extended their closure, with reopening now scheduled for the 2nd April. Source- park social media. Wouldn’t be surprised to see this pushed further to May or June given circumstances. Delayed closure/reopening of other European and U.K. parks is unfortunately imminent.
  3. I just hope it isn’t like their burgers!
  4. Tbh I’ll be happy to ride almost any coaster this year given the state of everything right now! That name is certainly quite a spin (pun intended) on your typical coaster name.
  5. Nothing is safe or confirmed (even the U.K. parks), but if I’m permitted to travel anywhere besides the kitchen and garden, my 2021 itinerary might be: The Merlin Parks Blackpool PB Paultons Phantasialand Efteling Tover Land Walibi Belgium Energylandia Disneyland CA/ California Adventure SF Magic Mountain Universal Hollywood Knotts Plus maybe/hopefully Flamingo Land Plopsaland (in spite of “that burger” Walibi Belgium Europa & Rutluntica Another European park (maybe for Christma
  6. So the winner blasts them all! Happy New Year all!
  7. I seriously hope this happens and though I’m still in the “I’ll believe it when I see it” club right now, things are looking somewhat more optimistic and hopefully we will see things taking shape soon. Theres still many hurdles ahead for this project and one has to hope it doesn’t end up like one of those that gets abandoned during construction or how Hard Rock park ended up.
  8. Corrected. This will truly be a coaster like no other! Unless you compare it to an Intamin multi-launch.
  9. Now that’s what I call a rocket lunch No Go Kart acceleration here!

  17. Such a shame, 2020 has been such a horrific year especially for Drayton Manor. First the floods, then the (ongoing) pandemic/lockdowns and now this. Not to mention going into administration and the “imminent” Splash canyon accident fine. Don’t think any other park has had it so hard. Least no animals or anyone were hurt though.
  18. I think on the whole the new piece of theming mostly looks great from what we’ve seen so far and is probably one of the better examples we’ve seen since Wild Asia at least. However writing more on this, I can understand some of the points of it looking flat which seems the case from certain angles. Also, the existing area may need some work too as it’s looking remarkably worn in several sections. The “time will tell” factor is something else to consider, because whilst something might look great to begin with, it could already start to look rundown and dilapidated after ju
  19. The changes are a mixed bag and perhaps not surprising or expected, especially given the substantial increases. On one note it now costs significantly more for the same product, unless one goes for the basic pass. However it could be argued that despite it’s numerous flaws, the MAP in it’s original form offered cheap and remarkable value. The intention may well to reduce the number of pass holders whilst making more money for the company. Whether we see more of this towards investments at existing attractions, remains to be seen.
  20. Whilst they are at it, I have also heard: Professor Burps Bubbleworks is returning and replacing Gruffalo (they’ll use remaining props and printed cardboard Scorpion Express will be renamed Runaway Train, minus the rockwork Tiger Rock will be renamed Dragon Falls. Again minus the rockwork Chessington. All back Right!

  24. Double Post! (shoot me) Decided to create a piano medley based on tunes from Efteling. Which tunes do you recognise? Any future requests feel free to PM. Mods place where you please!
  25. I think everything will be exactly the same as it was in 2021, except for general maintenance and appropriate safety/covid measures whatever the cases are. I just don’t know why the park would spend even more money on it given the changes done this year, the new 2021 attractions and the ‘square’ fundings the park would receive from Merlin per season. I’m not sure what sources suggest a Terror/Forbidden Tomb retheme/restoration, but I just can’t see it! Could be proven wrong though.
