  1. This level of upkeep is dream material. gotta love that oil!
  2. I’m not riding the Crocodile Flume. Grabbing a kiddie coaster Cred is one thing, but a kiddie water Cred? Nah I’m alright. Anything could happen with this updated area. Except the opening of a Rainforest Cafe.
  3. Yup, can fully see the park reverting Rumba back to Thunder. Along with bringing back Pirates 4D and removing DBGT for the return of the Arena. On second thoughts, they’ll probably keep the ride the same until they remove it whenever that is.
  4. I think good crowd controlling in parks comes down to (but not limited to): Major rides/attractions with decent capacity/operations Sufficient support attractions such as flat rides and other attractions within close proximity Balanced consistency of shows and entertainment Design and layout of footpaths and locations Tactical ways of moving around guests Over the last 5-10 years we have easily seen many parks go either way when it comes to handling crowds. Some have improved their infrastructure and layouts which improved how they handle crowds, whilst others have striped back on theirs leading to them coping worse when they get busy.
  5. To compare anything and everything to Disney is in relativity unfair and inaccurate. You have to remember they are a multi billion company and throw millions on attention refurbishments (let alone new ones), which very few (If any) other major parks or operators can realistically afford.
  6. Wouldn’t be surprised if it’s similar to Fury at Bobblejaan or Gold Rush at Slagharen. After all, these three are all owned by Parque Reunidos.
  7. I think the Capybara may well be the spirit animal of judgemental park enthusiasts. They look alright.
  8. Ah Ling Bao, marvellous hotel and probably one of my favourite places I have ever stayed, let alone in a theme park! The theming, the ambience, surroundings, food, drink. Even the smells and music. It’s just a whole new experience to visit. Sure it isn’t cheap but the escapism is surreal. Heck even, walking out to the Chinese square in the middle of the night seeing Taron loom in the distance. You are literally staying in the park overnight!
  9. Has been a while so might as well update: Gouderix- Ouch Ouch Ouch. Looks nice on the lakeside though which is a shame it doesn’t ride as nicely. Banshee- Dull, forceless and just underwhelming. Adventure Express- A themed lift hill that leads into a, wait for it.... the station. Hero- No description needed. Tokaido, Khan and G.Force are not forgotten, won’t miss G Force tbh.
  10. Haven’t visited their Winter event for a couple years now, but was absolutely fantastic when I went. Definitely thinking of returning in the future at some point.
  11. Too early to say whether this’ll be good or not, but at least the park are getting another dark ride/indoor attraction which they have somewhat needed now. I’m sure it will work though for the target market they are going for.
  12. Parks that are potential 1 day Trip material: Liseberg- there’s a bus from the airport to the centre Tivoli Gardens- train like from the airport Parc Asterix- bus from CDG Airport T3 Plopsaland again, if you can drive it, however it can be a long tiresome day if there’s just one driver. Me and few others did this a few months ago and due to the intense schedule and ferry delays, we didn’t get back until 5am. 1 day trips may work out cheaper in the long run, but remember you will be working with a short and intense schedule and if there are any noticeable delays on the way, that trip could be drastically affected or even ruined.
  13. According to Island beats, it wasn’t particularly successful. Also the Ghost of the Arena says hi. Thorpe just doesn’t get the crowds or clientele like places such as Kew Gardens. no one knows what Thorpe want, even Thorpe don’t know what they want tbh.

  15. Me when Thorpe opens an RMC like that’s gonna happen ever, let alone soon!
