  2. ...Meanwhile those with enough common sense to know when a ride has had its day will be observing this thread like: JUST LET AN ALREADY DYING RIDE DIE ALREADY!!! Seriously though, I've never cringed so hard in my life...

    Double post but for a Yogscast moment, this is absolutely incredible. That ending
  4. PlanCo's latest DLC has landed, and I'm gonna be honest...it actually looks amazing
  5. Probably the creators themselves after checking in on their box office income...
  6. My recent trip to Liseberg certainly said a lot about my photography... Even this one was incredibly lucky! A typical shot of Valkyria with Helix perfectly timed in the background. ?

    "Good to see you lying there in your Superman skivvies..."
  8. Sounds like the usual yob who thinks Fastrack magically gets them onto the ride in the blink of an eye...
  9. I think I made a huge mistake of glancing at ConnorJ's post above this after watching the video... The ride did look great back then, even without all the vegetation.
  10. Yeah true, I personally remember it very well from the early 2000s, just before its removal. And if '99 was it's first appearance, it wouldn't surprise me, given Chessington were going all out towards the thrillseekers that year (hence Samurai).
  11. No one's mentioned yet, but it also seems the queue has received some new spooky ambient music and while it may not be the original (boo!), it still sounds pretty good (despite the fact it's a little too on the quiet side), especially with parts of the station soundtrack distantly fading in and out occasionally. Safety announcements fade into it nicely as well, instead of cutting the music right out with the annoying bat/wolf howling sound effects. Not to mention the voice itself now actually sounds menacing and fitting, instead of tired and unmotivated like the old ones*. Even the PA announcements don't interfere with the audio whatsoever! * Saying that, we now only wait for the terrible station announcements to be re-recorded by the same person as in the new queue music. Those incredibly tired "Mwa-ha-ha-ha"s never fail to be irritating...
  12. How Thorpe Park expect people to react to these images: Actual reaction:

    Either that or very simply, if they can see it, they wouldn't even care. There's been an ongoing pattern in recent years that Merlin seem to think that the majority of guests are blind to theming or any kind of detail, rather just pay attention to the bare bones of the ride or attraction instead.
  14. Can't help but to think back to all the buildup for the ride and then finally riding it for the first time and...
  15. I do actually recall someone from the forum creating a Slack server back in 2015 (I can't remember the name) but it bloody worked as a chatroom alternative!
  16. This coming from the biggest moaner on the site. YES! Still missing the days of getting to know a certain few between 2013 and 2016, it's probably the best memory I have of my time on here really. Shame this lot don't even use the forum anymore.
  17. Well now, I thought I'd never see the day I'm excited for a kids' ride... This'll definitely serve the park well!
  18. ...because how else would you be able to take in the sheer beauty of Valhalla...before Odin casts you into fiery Helheim?? Lesson is kids, don't f*ck with Ragnarok in front of Odin (so the story goes).
  19. Doesn't stop me from foreseeing the impending rebranding into Julia Donaldson Land in around 10 years time though...
  20. Busy year for me park-wise for once. Got Liseberg, Kolmarden and Phantasialand on the cards. I'll even be hitting Efteling with the Planet Coaster community as an added bonus.
  21. Liseberg withdrawal symptoms resulted in me almost recreating Loke...
  22. Nemesis won again. Yay. Oh who am I kidding. Both that and Slammer have made this "game" boring in recent years. Now please...FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT BRING THIS GODAWFUL TRADITION BACK NEXT YEAR.
  23. You say that and then there also could've been the millions spent the following year... ...right Derren?
