    Major Ride Closures 2016

    Based purely on visitors alone, an extra 1,000,000 on a budget to take a theme from average to exceptional, would require an extra 4000 visitors a year, based on the cheapest 2 for 1 offers, over a 10 year cycle, not including offsetting against tax, increased revenue from merchandise (which is...

    Thorpe Park 2017: DBGT: Rise of The Demon

    Isn't that Varney's true form? ;)

    The magic has disappeared!

    That's all I'm saying Dan, that those things are going to affect how people experience the day. We're enthusiasts, I've even said myself I can understand why some of these rides are closed (after being initially, as everyone pretty much was, peeved at it) - the public wont know that because...

    The magic has disappeared!

    I don't think that my posts are deserving of quite such hostile responses. And it is not by personal choice that I am not visiting, or I would have by now. I was trying to just enjoy a polite discussion, it's hardly like all my posts towards Towers are negative, but this stuff I'm sorry Dan...

    The magic has disappeared!

    I am actually, if you read through my post, crediting people who've done some great work, but been undermined by other areas which have hamstrung that progress. Ultimately we both want the same thing, which is to see the park do well, but happy to agree to disagree, although I did say in my...

    The magic has disappeared!

    But it wasn't the guests fault Dan what happened, but the guests are "picking up the tab" from a wider company that could have easily absorbed a bad year. If it gave a damn about it's guests. And you forgot Flume, Ripsaw, and Wobble World to add to NST, Hex, Driving School plus the present faff...

    The magic has disappeared!

    OK I see the point Dan's making here, I've not been this year yet (THAT depresses me lol, so stop moaning Astro ;) ) - and for that reason I have admittedly not read through this thread. However, I must also add, speakers and paint jobs maketh not magic. Tons of new benches, maketh only BENCH...

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach: General Discussion

    Admittedly the Big One could be renamed The Pharaoh given the pyramid shaped hills. But these are iconic structures and rides. "We need more woodies in the UK". "Turn two of the most iconic woodies in the UK to fake woodies or rip them down". You'd only ask for them to rebuild them 10 years...

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach: General Discussion

    Is the Space Invader mountain still there? They should shoe horn a new coaster in there! I wish some parks would start building decent indoor coasters again! With the likes of Mack and Gerst building ones that can manage really tight twists and turns, something pretty epic could be built...

    Fraispertuis City - New Major Attraction 2017 (Intamin?)

    Breaking a record for 4-5m Euros? So that's where Morwenna has been hiding. On some obscure French park's forum.

    Walibi Rhône-Alpes 2019: Gerstlauer Infinity Coaster

    May be being unfair here but it does look sped up doesn't it? The way it bounces around doesn't look natural to me.

    Phantasialand - 2022 Discussion

    I see everyone else is noticing that nippy overbank, when I first saw it fly through that I was pretty stunned! It reminds me a bit of Nemesis' first Helix the way it just absolutely rockets through it. Amazing looking ride. Intamin are hit and miss as we know but this one looks like it could...

    What is happening to the B&Ms?! EDIT: Just figured it out. They're going on strike for their comrade air.

    2016: The Smiler Reopening

    I wonder if that was done for this community as well as the washing machine element footage... Alas, no footage of @josht in a mankini on the Marmaliser...
