  1. To be fair they have a very solid top 3, more solid than other Florida parks (Manta and Mako were my top 2 favourites in Florida and Kraken was still brilliant). And looking at the direction Seaworld are taking with investments it is only going to get stronger.
  2. Whilst Rameses will be missed, I do agree that it has reached the end of its shelf life. Plus it has served a decent amount of time at the resort for what it is. Honestly I’d take this over anything Thorpe have got in the last 6 years. And it sounds like a good stepping stone between the likes of treetop hoppers and detonator.
  3. When I found out it had reopened from looking at the app, as I had missed the ride quite a bit (as it’s my favourite) I decided to just drive down and give it 2 rides today! Despite it being an hour drive there and back and only being there for about an hour, I think it was worth it 👍
  4. Didn’t realise there was a topic on this so I may as well attempt to sort of revive it. After having done 1st year Civil and Structural Engineering at Leeds, I decided it wasn’t the right course for me. This is because I wasn’t particularly enjoying it, I was really struggling to take in information during lectures (whilst did attend every lecture, it wouldn’t have made a difference if decided to bunk off most of them instead) and I didn’t take to it naturally unlike many other students who naturally enjoyed it and could take to it very well. I did manage to get 65% which was a huge shock (in a good way) that was mainly due to some insane cramming and was also dragged up by getting 85% in the maths module. So instead I will be switching to Mathematics and repeating first year whilst still staying at Leeds because it’s an amazing city (and the music society is brilliant). Maths has always been my strongest subject, a subject I personally found easy (whilst still enjoyable at A Level) and have always been intrigued with as it gets more advanced. The maths lectures during first year engineering were also the only lectures I genuinely enjoyed so I’m pretty confident I will enjoy studying it a lot more than engineering. So yeah... time to do first year for the second time!

    Video Games.

    Last Friday after my last exam for 1st year at uni I decided to buy a switch and hop on the odyssey bandwagon (well almost 2 years late!). Much like everyone else here, I’m absolutely loving the game! I cannot decided whether I prefer this or Galaxy (which was my favourite video game of all time). I’m so glad they went back to the non-linear formula because whilst 3D land and world were good games in their own right, they just weren’t true 3D Mario games so odyssey was a smart move!
  7. Surprised the following 2020 coasters have barely been mentioned on here but I just wanted to comment about some of my observations. Many of us know about the two B&M “hyper” coasters coming most likely next year to Hershey Park and KI (the latter isn’t confirmed but is like 99% likely). Everyone has seemed to go with the idea that KI’s will be a giga based on what cedar fair has done in the past with other parks, the fact they already have a hyper as well as the layout plans. I noticed something from the track that may confirm it. Whilst I couldn’t find an image of the track for the lift hill, I noticed a piece of track below where the spine seems to widen to what looks like the start of a B&M giga style lift. For the B&M most likely going to Hersheypark. It’s height is unknown but I think the lift hill track suggests a hyper given it doesn’t have the wider spine as seen on gigas. I don’t know if anyone else has commented about this online somewhere else, if so I’m sorry if this sounds really obvious.
  8. I would’ve wanted to go, but it’s right in the middle of uni exams and concert season ? But I do hope everyone else going has a pleasant and enjoyable day ?
  9. I got to try out Gamefx a few days ago and I had a decent time in there. There was clearly a lot to do, though I do wish there were more Nintendo consoles as I would have to wait for a free NES or N64 whilst there were plenty of PS1s, PS2s, XBOXs available, that appeared to be more of a balance issue (that last comment is biased as Nintendo is my go-to company). But it was fun getting to play some retro games that I hadn't played before such as Mario Kart 64 or Simpsons Hit and Run and I think overall it was a nice event to have at the park to enhance the day. However, I really want to bring up something about VR in general. I had never played a fully interactive VR game before so I decided to get a token and try out Job Simulator, and I must say, it was probably the most fun I've had in a video game for a long time. Literally 10 minutes on Job simulator was so much more enjoyable than the whole of DBGT! And I think it came down to the fact that it felt real due to the high amount of interaction. I was completely unaware that I probably looked liked a complete idiot whilst playing (sorry if all this is starting to dive into other topic areas). Now I've only done 2 "fully dedicated" VR theme park attractions which were DBGT and Galactica, and neither of them felt real at all and many people also seem to find underwhelming (hence why Galactica no longer has VR). This is where I must say that from my point of view VR just doesn't really work unless you properly interact with it. Also, after my last ride on DBGT (which was fully functional aside from a few glitches), I literally have no desire to ride it again. Yes I have ridden it many times now which probably has a huge impact, but that VR game made me realise just how poor the attraction is.
  10. I do wish the Digipass perk came with the Merlin pass too ?
  11. Yeah I saw that in the FAQs, they said you can do that if you purchased your pass after September and if the ID number starts with 99 (which I don't know about mine but it probably does).
  12. Annoyingly I left my annual pass at uni and do plan on going to TP during the holidays. When getting your pass reprinted, do you need to know your pass ID? Because I have no idea what it is. Also I purchased mine online around November last year and don't remember if I assigned it to an attraction (it would've probably been TP if I had assigned it) and the confirmation email doesn't suggest anything. So will I be able to get my pass reprinted at TP?

    Here are a few more pieces of classical music I’m rather fond of: Brass Chorale from Mahler 2 Fanfare for the common Man The great gate of kiev Tam O’Shanter Overture (slightly biased towards the drunk trombone solos)
  14. The game is bad enough as it is, but when the same ride wins all the time (this is probably to get back at me after hating against it 2 years ago) then it just becomes pointless. And when it’s pointless it’s no fun.
  15. How about the same game using members instead of rides?
