    The Texas Cred Run Massacre 2022

    I thought Tidal Surge was breathtaking if I'm honest. Up with Loke (liseberg) as a favourite flat ride. Cheers for the tip, we'd taken to using the free water refill points to get newly chilled water before leaving the parks. Everyone we spoke to, ride ops, park management, hotel staff...

    The Texas Cred Run Massacre 2022

    Day 2 - Part 1 Texas is VERY hot, if you can ever go I can only suggest hitting a Walmart ASAP and buying a crate of water bottles. Then put a few in your hotel fridge every night. The parks do have refill point but they can range between ice cold and tepid. Anyways, after a decent nights...

    The Texas Cred Run Massacre 2022

    Day 1 - So due to the flight times changing and the later opening of Kemah Boardwalk and Galveston Pier (both 12 noon). We sadly decided due to time constraints as cool as doing a Gerstlauer on a pier would be we'd have to scrap those plans to fit in everything else we'd planned in the...

    The Texas Cred Run Massacre 2022

    Day 0 - Aka Travel Day So having gone to the effort of buying a covid test and barely leaving the house since the start of June the US decided to lift the requirement for a test starting from the day I travelled. Anyhow as the verifly app still required the rest result on the Saturday morning...

    The Texas Cred Run Massacre 2022

    Hey yo! Currently on holiday in Texas for the week. I'm attending the PBE American Dream event which starts on Sunday in Chicago. Obviously after 2 years of delays etc a few friends and I decided to make the most of the more expensive flights and go for early to visit some new parks and...

    SeaWorld & Aquatica San Antonio

    Visited the park today, still considering writing a proper trip report shortly. Loved the park, Steel Eel lots of fun, almost Magnum esque bunny hills towards the end. Best coaster hands down is Texas Stingray, another GCI triumph. Certainly hauls through the layout. Tidal Surge is...

    Strange Rides

    The water park at Duinrell all the slides were basically unstaffed and used the traffic light system of when to go. Just meant you'd not hang around once you hit the water. They had a self operated trapdoor slide were you'd close yourself in and the button to lock and operate the trapdoor was...

    Strange Rides

    Well from the video it would seem you cannot enter the slide area at the top until the person whose gone in front has exited the splash pool and pressed the button you see at the end. Clearly the park/country trusts it patrons to stick to these rules. Plus I remember as a kid going to all...

    Drayton Manor Park

    I think it's just down to luck, I visited late 2020 went on storm force 10 just around noon and came off pretty dry, then did it last thing before leaving and got a soaking off the backwards drop. I wasn't best pleased.

    Drayton Manor Park

    I suppose the one thing in Shockwaves favour is I doubt the track has had the trains going round as much as the big one or nemesis.

    Thorpe Park: General Discussion

    I mean if Stealth had restraints similar to Top Thrill Dragster or Red Force there'd be no issues with them riding either.

    Drayton Manor Park

    Just glad I visited in 2020 and got on sit down, stand up, and stand up floor less all in the same day. Sounds like by the time I visit in September it might be SBNO sadly.

    Phantasialand: The irregularities and irritations of one of Europe's best parks

    I remember my last visit staying in Hotel Matamba on my own, had a few drinks sat at the bar then when going the toilet having to make it clear to the bar staff I'd be back and wasn't trying to avoid paying the bill.

    TBC: SW9 Speculation

    Re-theme it all to Apocalypse Now and have a Robert Duvall animatronic proclaiming "Charlie don't surf" before you leave the station.

    Theme Park Worldwide

    The best chip shops are the ones that do Chinese food as well.

    Flamingo Land: General Discussion

    Maybe who ever wrote the article doesn't believe the smiler holds the record fairly what with it having 2 lift hills. Whereas Colossus/Sik etc all get to 10 inversions with just the one lift hill.

    SeaWorld Orlando: General Discussion

    You have to say B and M have played a blinder with this. Phase 1: Develop and sell stand up coasters to parks Phase 2: Make money converting the majority of stand up coasters to sit down floor less. Phase 3: Develop a new stand up coaster to sell to parks and start the process all over again.

    TBC: SW9 Speculation

    SeaWorld Orlando have just confirmed the surf coaster for 2023 which looks like B and Ms New take on the stand up coaster. Merlin have a great relationship with B and M. The ride can be marketed as unique to Europe. Gives the park a modern launch coaster. Obviously merlin would need to come...
