  1. It's not my favourite rollercoaster ever but it really is awesome. First ride, I wasn't expecting that experience and was genuinely terrified. Second ride was just wonderful, just full of everything a well paced rollercoaster needs.
  2. Maybe Hagrids should have been built inside then. 😉
  3. I'd call Hagrid a glorified, everything but the kitchen sink family coaster myself but we can all be brutal at times. 😉 Just to clarify, I don't think either approach is perfect, Galaxys Edge at Disneyland has seen a massive attendance drop across the resort because of how Disney overplayed just how busy it was going to be. Universal seem quite happy with everyone piling into Hagrid based on how quiet the rest of the park was on those ten hour queue days.

    Not drinking water.
  5. Just to clarify, they could have opened the ride three hours earlier (Disney down the road are opening Galaxy Edge at 7am with Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom also opening at 7am to try and spread the demand and attract People away from a Hollywood studios). But also to add, Universal could have done more to keep down the nine hour queue down. Look at the way Disneyland opening Galaxys Edge, severely restricting access to the area and advising guests on just how busy it could be. I'm not to clued up on the exact ride, however was this ever soft opened? If there was chances of huge downtime, should they have delayed it by just a little bit to soften the impact.. because ten hours is just way to long for an intamin family coaster no matter how you spin it. None of this is a problem and obviously different parks and different situations. Just the approaches for guest experiences are vastly different.
  6. Aww, please don't paint it silver and black. Tedious, boring colours.
  7. I wasn't really getting excited for this but now that its moving, it looks better then I was expecting.
  8. Guarantee it closes because of structural problems.
  9. Maybe Merlin know Thorpe is dead in the water at this point and won't invest properly into the place until they know what to do with it (sell it hopefully).
  10. Is that an unpopular opinion? Do Americans prefer Wodan over Mystic Timbers? Do Europeans prefer Mystic Timbers over Wodan. I've never heard a conversation where the two come up in direct competition to be honest.
  11. I remember when Samurai at Chessington was replaced by some trampolines. Dark days.
  12. If it was more like Magnum, I'd try and be at Blackpool every weekend. That ride was brilliant.
  13. Sounds dreadful.

    Deep down, everybody knows Quantum is the best ride at Thorpe Park.
  15. 😍 The more I ride Wodan, the more it cements itself as my favourite wooden coaster. It's just utterly relentless. It's the perfect antithesis to Blue Fire which feels so controlled and perfected.
