    Chessington World of Adventures Resort

    Yeah, I’ve always worked on the idea that, in the case of a shuttle coaster like this, it has one inversion but it inverts twice. Though is a cobra roll a single inversion that itself inverts twice? By that reckoning, a Boomerang has 2 inversions but inverts 6 times. But I’m straying off topic...

    Chessington World of Adventures Resort

    Maybe they’re doing this like a French railway and building a double-decker train. Just hope you have a shorter rider above you so you don’t end up with an ankle to the forehead mid ride.

    Alton Towers/Merlin Typos & Grammatical Errors

    No no, simply an excuse to charge extra for a more exotic sounding dish. They’d be calling the tomato soup “potage du jour” if they thought they could whack an extra two quid onto the price.

    The Hotels: A deep-seated culture of mediocrity

    Agree it’s daft that the same items have different prices across the restaurants, though at least they’ve managed to get it the right way round this time! Not too long ago, Crooked Spoon’s items were more expensive than their SGR counterparts. It’s nothing new. Personally I’d rather pay 50p...

    The Hotels: A deep-seated culture of mediocrity

    Potentially, although don’t forget, given the current ownership and setup of Merlin with Kirkbi/LEGO it isn’t beyond the realms of possibility that there’s a vested interest in keeping the LEGO parks held in a higher regard. I wouldn’t be surprised if there isn’t slightly more priority in their...

    Universal Studios/IOA Orlando: General Discussion

    I was watching a video of this the other day and I have to say I was really impressed. It seems to have really flown under the radar, having never really seen it discussed anywhere, but looks like an excellent show. It almost felt like Universal Studios returning to its roots after gutting...

    Dollywood: General Discussion

    I absolutely agree about rides being too short. But I think here you’ve really hit the nail for me. Long rides need to remain interesting. That can be with theming, or it can be with a unique element, such as a riding position, trick track, show scene or similar. This so sparse and track and...

    Dollywood: General Discussion

    I mean, it does feel like an awful lot of track that isn’t really doing a great deal, even as a family coaster. Perhaps they’ll add more props and themed structures around the layout to give it something a little extra, but based on that video it could have ended at the second launch and still...

    Nah, can’t possibly be for a Merlin order. It’s not grey.

    The Hotels: A deep-seated culture of mediocrity

    Towers have all on getting basic turnstyle and hand scanning working for park tickets and annual passes on some days. Let’s not try and add room keys into the mix! Disney invested quite literally hundreds of millions of dollars into developing their integrated ticketing system and MagicBands...

    SeaWorld Orlando: General Discussion

    Oh it gets better. I’ve just been reading that they’re also getting sneaky with other hidden charges. Apparently when you rent a locker in the parks it’s $10 for the day, and you can use that across all the rides. You go to the machine, select the locker you want, set up a PIN to access it and...
