  1. Well when two boats love each other very much.. Okay maybe not now, it is a family forum.
  2. Honestly if they charged a few pounds extra, fine.. But Legoland is literally more than double the price.
  3. So I wanted to add a list of under-rated rides I have ridden- for those rides that do not get appreciated enough. Eurosat- Europa Park In a park full of loads of things to talk about- food, shows, theming. And their big 3, plus Arthur. Euro-Mir's wackyness and its forceful ending. Eurosat seems to not get talked about much. Which is odd considering it is in a huge white dome. The coaster itself is one of the best indoor coasters IMO, ever since the re-track the ride is butter smooth. Has some good laterals, and is a fairly long ride. It is a family coaster, but it does have a
  4. It looks very unique layout wise for a invert. I am sure it'll be a quirky ride. I love how its layout is a bit funky.
  5. Nope. Right now this would not work on a full park scale, and even if it did. Do parks really need to abolish queueing? No. The covid restrictions (damage to throughput) probably contruibute hard to this. Its probably no worse than it was early last year, or the year before. It has been a huge issue for years. Due to the throughputs already being compromised due to Covid, it just highlights things. Honestly I think the solution begins with Merlin- they need to be more cut-throat. Make it harder, like Europa Park for example. I know it will pi** people off, but let it
  6. Even the value nowadays at the pizza pasta places is bad- but here at Legoland the price point is extortionate. This is more expensive than Disney and Universal, which are overpriced in itself.. I'm blaming Merlin because it is a bloody Merlin park. Who runs it? Merlin. Lego is just a brand that happens to bring in the people. There is being smart and charging a bit more, and then there is daylight robbery like this price point we see here today. Would you pay for this? Would you buy this meal and feel like you got a inch of value for money?
  7. Honestly I find it so cool they are using slammer as theming for this. Really a subtle easter egg to the past.
  8. Maybe Forbidden Tomb will be the name of the top-spin going in Tomb Blaster's building?
  9. This is absolutely stupid- I thought Merlin actually were pretty good with providing varied and actually not too expensive food. This makes Disney look cheap, for Pizza that is not even that high of quality. Not too long ago we could get unlimited for cheaper.. I'd rather order Pizza to get delivered to the car park for cheaper lol. Honestly I will bloody pack sandwiches if I have to next time I visit a Merlin park.
  10. I just wanted to add my two cents to this- I feel like Blackpool is so liked as it is actually quite unique. Blackpool has so many weird throwbacks to the past in its lineup, rides like Steeplechase are absolutely old gems, you cannot ride a Steeplechase anywhere else. Revolution is a great coaster, and happens to also be one of 3 operating (the only one in Europe, and the most well known of its kind). Throw in 4 fun retro woodies, one of the best Mack Bobsleds, and a good looking Mack. I do see why people like the park. Sure it is really strictly an amusement park- most of the rid
  11. I like this. Any investment in Drayton is good tbh, the park could do with some modern areas and some new rides.
  12. I honestly do not remember the Ghost Train's campaign very well, probably because I was not very interested. I think Merlin have done better marketing trains for rides. The Smiler is a amazing example. The Sanctuary- a maze that basically serves a backstory really fleshes the theme properly for me. I only got to experience it in 2014, but I do believe debuting that maze in 2012 as a teaser was genius. I also remember their was an stupid amount hype behind Smiler. And for good reason, it was a unqiue coaster that really nobody believed could be crammed into that footprint. I remember the app an
  13. BUMP. This one came to me the other day, when I was younger I went to Six Flags Over Texas- this ride is not the 'worst' ride ever. But for its stature and size. It is such a piece of crap. Titan. The ride's layout is just so pointless. It has a 255 feet drop, which is incredibly shallow, and void of any airtime. It feels like a ramp, not a drop. It does have good speed though, so that is something I guess? After that drop is a forceless turnaround, a airtime hill that gives no airtime, and a helix before slamming into the world's worst MCBR. This MCBR murders the speed, and p
  14. Its kind of messy with family rides. Thorpe from 2013-2015 decided to try the family route. Before ditching it in 2016, then adding hand me down family friendly flat rides in 2017, then finally drenching their most popular family ride in blood and zombies for no reason in 2018. It seems at the moment we're not getting anything more than a walkthrough or a bench. Honestly I think Merlin view Thorpe as a low profit asset, and hence right now they would rather invest in Legolands and throw Alton and Chessington the occasional bone. With Covid, I honestly think Thorpe getting anything will be a lo
  15. I'm not surprised, they have lacked direction for 6 years now. RIP to the park having a clear image.
