    Park Hours: Updates and Discussion

    I think it depends what your perception of value is based on. Personally, I'd much rather visit on a 10 - 4 close and ride everything I wanted with minimal waits than on a day with with a couple of extra hours and waits double or triple. Especially at Alton Towers where fine dining or long...

    Wicker Man - General Discussion - Part Two

    Wicker Man is one of the most effective and least offensively presented pre-shows on any coaster I can think of. There have been a few rides with unavoidable pre-shows that were pretty heinous. Terminator and Led Zeppelin are probably the most well known. As much as I like Zep, a documentary...

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach: 2022 Discussion

    Some of the bodges on the Big One are phenomenal, I have posted some of them before - will take a couple of photos next time on park. The one outlined above is pretty interesting, not least because the way it's painted now, it's actually not very noticeable. The main support is blue, but the...

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach: 2022 Discussion

    Some really nice PMBO construction photos here from ECC, including a great (and rare!) view of the original first drop. Hats off to Justin for posting them. This is real content, in lieu of some vlogknobbery. I am sure the usual suspects have saved these to their mum's laptop and are ready to...

    Oakwood Discussion

    I'd always recommend a visit to Oakwood, it's charming and does have some nice rides for all ages - but it's small. If you go with an understanding of what the park is and what it's not, you'll have a great time. Folly Farm is not far up the road if you fancied making a few days out of the area.

    Has anyone bought or rented Closed for Storm (trailer above)? It's £6 on Prime. I was going to do it this weekend but didn't get round to it.

    Review the last roller coaster you rode

    @Matt N the more I read about how you enjoy certain rides, the more I find your admiration for Icon to be a complete headscratcher.

    Icon or Blue Fire?

    Blue Fire, by any metric.

    Talking GIBberish - Taking A Joke Too Far

    Nice trip report @Poisson - did you do the Warner water rides ? They're three solid offerings. @Craig - why does @Poisson's GIF avatar work, but not mine ? :(

    Flamingo Land: General Discussion

    I'm not a fast track hater, quite the opposite really - I figure it's part of the modern park experience, it not being available by exception at a few select locations - it's pretty ubiquitous now and I'll use it when at a park I rarely visit. That said, £50 for skipping five rides at Flamingo...
