    Blackpool New Merlin Attraction

    I went on the Gruffalo water ride at Chessington last week and I was rather pleasantly surprised! It's quite decent. I've not had reason to try it before but I now have a toddler niece and she loved it.

    About as cheesy as it gets but if you're with a good crew you'll have fun!

    Butlins big weekends

    Been to a couple. They are OK if you're with a good group. Lots of stags and hens, nothing ground-breaking musically. What did you want to know?

    I don’t think it would be that easy to get permission to demolish! They would have to have evidence, offer it up to a trust or CIC to fund and repair it, or they’d have to keep it as a structure, if not a ride. Same with the old Scenic in Margate… even if it ends up standing as a monument to...

    Dreamland Margate: General Discussion

    haha... but their accounts suggest they shouldn't even be able to afford an old banger. That's business, old sons.

    I'm not hard up but there's no way on earth I'd pay £15 or £25 for that. Absolutely bonkers.

    Cash Vs card on park/hotels

    It sounds like EP is the exception in Germany. I've just had a break in Berlin and I was shocked at the amount of bars, restaurants etc that were cash only! Strange really, considering COVID. Definitely, the least card friendly city I've been to.

    Are you a "hands in the air" person or a "holding on tight" person when riding?

    Hands up every time. It's not like holding on tight is going to make any difference anyway!

    What post length requires a TL;DR?

    Someone who says 'too long didn't read' as response to a post is throwing a thinly veiled insult and should be given the attention they deserve. None.

    The Brexit Thread

    It’s not just disingenuous, it’s a complete load of old bullshit! This government get away with a lot of that.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question… the application is all about the track but will it be the same trains? Is that likely or not?
