  1. You know Thorpe have reached a new low when they’re making fun of their decline…
  2. I was on park yesterday and controversially I actually quite like the new audio for the Swarm. Honestly the old audio was pretty monotone and ngl after 8 years of hearing it on end I’d had enough of it. The variety in the new audio and having the queue audio be completely different to the station really adds to it imo. Also I loved the cheeky use of Dies Ire in the station audio (classical music nerds will know).
  3. Personally I think it’s exactly what Chessington needs (based on TPWW’s video and assuming the coaster does actually contain the inversion). It doesn’t look too extreme so it might be a nice step up for those younger ones wanting to get on their first true thrill coaster. However it will also satisfy the older guests as again it will be a thrill coaster, not quite on the scale of something at Thorpe but probably the most thrilling coaster at the park. I will say I haven’t gone to Chessington for years, not because the park is bad but because I generally prefer the more thrill based parks. However this will give me an excuse to visit more frequently.
  4. Here are two general ones that come to mind: 1. I think Spinball Whizzer is a very enjoyable and rather intense coaster that deserves a bit more recognition by the park itself. I personally think it should be one of the main 8 (currently 7 obviously). Honestly I’d take it over Th13teen and Rita and it’s on par with Galactica and Oblivion (I’m not sure if I prefer it to them or not). I’m just a huge fan of Maurer spinners in general. 2. I think the Big One in the 2nd and 3rd to back row is the best coaster experience in the UK. I find the very back unbearably rough and the front fairly tame after the drop but it feels relentless near the back throughout to me (and I’ve ridden El Toro in the back so I know what relentless feels like).
  5. I had one years ago and used it until it broke (my uncle bought one then gave it to me because he couldn’t figure out how to work it). It was a decent watch but my god it was it so over complicated for me at that age. Though once I figured it out I really liked it. Nowadays I don’t really wear watches because I find them too distracting and irritating.
  6. Fantasy Island have just announced they’re getting what appears to be one of those travelling Maurer Spinning coasters. I’m a huge fan of the Maurer spinners I’ve done so far (yes this is much smaller but will probably still be decent). Honestly I’d take this over anything Thorpe have got since 2012.
  7. In that case I recon it’ll probably be easier to do a loop of parks with my own car. @JoshC. didn’t you do a loop of Walibi, Phantasia and Europa a few years back?
  8. Asking for advice again for a trip that may or may not happen... Me and some mates are thinking of touring a few theme parks in Europe sometime in the summer (covid depending obviously). Currently we’re thinking Europa Park (2 days), Holiday Park, Phantasialand (2 days), Toverland and Walibi Holland (they all line up quite nicely geographically). What’s the most effective way to get to these? How difficult is it via public transport? Is hiring a car a better/cheaper option? (Though I’ll still be 20 until late August so it’ll probably be very expensive for me.)
  9. On a highly positive note, Monster at Gröna Lund will feature the classic standard B&M invert trains! Either Gröna Lund are smart or B&M realised no one likes their new trains (or some other reason someone will definitely point out 😂).
  10. I’m definitely getting Eurovision fire saga vibes from this 😂 That aside I actually really like it, it has quite a euphoric feel to it (whether the ride will actually be like that, we’ll see).
  11. Detonator: Bomb's Away (6) Mr. Monkey's Banana Ride (0) Thread Detonated! Detonator is the winner! Cant go wrong with Detonator nowadays!

  14. Yeah I get your point, some rules have been messed with here and inferno should still technically be in. But let’s be honest, the game is nowhere near as fun now as it was 5 years ago when different rides would win each year (ahh the good old days 😊). The sense of mystery of whose gonna win is gone which has ruined it imo 😓 At least it’s not as bad as Millie winning number 1 coaster 7 years in a row 😂
