    Yeah one is like the larger ones but the other is without the handle more like a modern pint glass with a slight curve in it. Nice collection you have there I will probably just hold on to them we've had them this long. Thanks for sharing your collection and info.

    You need to upload them though an uploading site (like photobucket) then copy the url into the image feature on here (or type [i mg]insert URL here[/img] (note - added space in word img so it wouldn't try to show a photo)

    Love the designs on those mugs, especially the Blackhole and Corkscrew ones!

    and yeah it's laughable the amount people charge for merchandise on Ebay. Like right now there's a listing up for a Smiler mug, at around £50!

    It's annoying too when you see some old 80s/90s stuff on Ebay (that you're interested in buying) and people bid into the £50, £60s and I've even seen Nemesis stuff go up to £90. Insane. Good for sellers though I guess when you get those crazy moments where people throw crazy amounts of money at you.

    I also have quite a bit of other crockery and porcelain type ornaments but mostly pre-theme park related to the house and gardens. If it was something the site wanted for the database I'll take some photo's some time and try to date them as accurately as I can. Some decent stuff.......well, I think so anyway :p

    The park really is in a horrific state this season. I've been visiting as often as I possibly can for as long as I can remember but I've only bothered twice this year and both times I've ended up wondering why I bothered.

    It isn't just the obvious things like Smiler's closure and the upsell, it's the standard, variety and value of food at the place, the removal of theming and the introduction of scaffolding / fences as some form of warped replacement, and the flat, depressing atmosphere hanging over the place this season.

    Credit to the staff who still manage to come across as cheerful but the place really has fallen off the cliff-face which Merlin had perched the park on the edge of. I'll be getting an annual pass for Drayton Manor next season instead, a park which actually has pride in itself and is nicely presented even if the rides are far from the same quality.

    I honestly find the park really depressing nowadays. It's dingy, its run down, and its overpriced.

    I've been once this year and don't really have any plans to go back.

    I too have only been twice this year, usually at this time of year I would of been at least 6/7 times. I don't know, I just haven't had the urge to go like I used to. Suppose the drab atmosphere over the place doesn't help.

    I think it depends if you go for the rides or the atmosphere. I go mainly for the rides (don't get me wrong, I do go for the atmosphere to, but if you were to say to me that all the rides would have hour queues all day, I wouldn't go)

    I have been making the most of the queues, an my ride count reflects this (105 since May :p)

    I went on Nemesis Inferno 26 times in a day when it first opened in 2004, but 57 rerides on X... I don't even know how to feel about that.
