Thanks to Tommy for setting this up again, and to everyone who took part! :)

The people have indeed spoken!

It appears I've lost some of my creakyness this year for some reason or another.

I am however still happy to be the winner of biggest fanboy and sexiest male amongst being second on most dedicated.

It appears I have won storm surge, must've been those coat hangers :P

And also 2nd sexiest female, what do I say (walks in dressed as Frank N Furter). Who knows what would happen if I'd won :o.

Baron rightfully won its placement was did Efteling and look toward to how 2016 developments turn out (especially since two of those are in the Uk for once).

Really thought Mack might have closed up a bit on B&M but I guess not many people on here get the chance to ride any of their new and upcoming crazy stuff. Just shows how much we need one over here. Always amazed Disney never make much of a presence either, especially with the number of people here who seem to rave about the place. I also sometimes wonder if people forget certain rides exist, I mean Bubbleworks joint 3rd with Tomb but Duel no where to be seen? I won't voice my opinion on Baron  :mellow:


Meanwhile, I guess Celia has succeeded. Jadam can't even win cutest couple award :( Must be well and truly over then, sorry J.S217, Celia has well and truly won.

I thank you all for letting me have a podium spot on 3 of the awards. I will celebrate tonight with 1) an espresso to wake me up 2) a caramel macchiato to keep me sweet and finally 3) an Irish Coffee to finish the night off.


I hope to see more of you in 2016 whilst going around on my world adventures!

Thank You
