  1. The Small Parks Thread

    Ride looks funky, funky brakes in between the funky drops look funky. But any park that animates upside down chickens for a new coaster will always win my heart...
  2. Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    Just a query, but which Blackpool rides are grade ll listed? I assume Grand National and Big Dipper are but I don’t know what else. I’m quite surprised that Wild Mouse wasn’t - but I’m very naive when it comes to the Pleasure Beach.
  3. Wicker Man - New for 2018

    New video and it’s another load of cojones. I’ve got to say however, that this eery rendition of “In The Hall Of The Mountain King”, doesn’t seem to work half as well as it did for The Smiler.
  4. Thorpe Park Ride Game 2017

    Absolutely, genuinely one of my favourite coasters. @Terry Terry Better than any Gerstlauer I’ve been on.
  5. Thorpe Park Ride Game 2017

    Colossus is the best ride on park, fact.

    Spinning woodie anyone?

  9. Wicker Man - New for 2018

    I’m not sure how legal/safe/moral this video is, but here is some drone footage of the ride from above. This was filmed when the park was open for their winter event, so it may be entirely illegal (so mods, feel free to delete this post). Credits go to whoever the guy who put this up is.
  10. Wicker Man - New for 2018

    I’d been waiting to see that side of the structure but I couldn’t find a picture, so thanks Baron! I do think the face looking up is rather unusual, and perhaps makes the figure seem more passive than powerful and intimidating. The body area is a little odd too, it just seems to be a bulky wooden rectangle, as opposed to something that links in with the 2 beautifully crafted faces above it.

    Courtesy of Attraction Images on Twitter, a birds eye view of SW8: (Oh, and from what I’ve gathered, the other side of the structure looks very different indeed - perhaps humanoid! )
  12. Unpopular Opinions

    Here we go; - RMC single rail coasters look like the biggest waste of time. - Wodan Timber Coaster is worse than euromir, Silver Star and Blue Fire. Not enjoyable. -Chessington is better than Thorpe, and always has been. -Geisterschloss at EP is an awful dark ride, christ, bench is better than it! -The gruffalo is a better attraction than Hex, or Derren Brown’s Ghost Pain. - The UK’s theme park selection looks worse than Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, France and Sweden’s collection of parks. Soon to be Poland and Turkey.

    Does Turkey still not tickle your fancy? Turkey and Poland look like the hidden gems of coaster trips at the moment.
  14. Energylandia

    Well I always thought Legendia and Energylandia were much closer, but the reality of 40 miles is actually quite significant. Legendia’s quite a long way out of Krakow. Which makes them a little bit tricky to combine with a Krakow minibreak.
  15. Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    It looks terrific - the only 2018 project that’s really exciting me. I really must get up to Blackpool next year. And as for that Immelmann, it’s certainly quirky...
