    I know the exact footage you're referring to. No idea about the Kappa tops, but the Adidas poppers have made a retro comeback. Saw them on sale when I was dragged round Topshop the other week by the missus (I'd rather have been in the pub!)

    Every time we went on Nemesis today Shawn Sanbrooke was on it too. He talks a lot.

    They often shut the back row when the rain is torrential.

    He got 50+ goes on it apparently. Could you imagine doing the smiler that many times. You'd be dead I reckon

    Spare a thought for the guy who rode El Condor for 20 hours non-stop...

    Not today :p 40+ back row rides. Never been so moist.
    People just queuing Row 7 then jumping on back row and hoping they didn’t get moved :D

    He sure does. Guess that's why he's just about the best Theme Park Vlogger - never lost for words! I think he's alright to be honest, he talks with passion for his chosen subject. I don't always agree but i admire an enthusiasts passion

    Yep. It's done to reduce the weight of the train in the service brakes - does not matter which row is closed off really. With all the erring well on the side of safety the park have since the Smiler, you would have thought it would be the front row they close off in torrential rain, as sitting there could be uncomfortable with rain in your face at 50mph.

    The queue to see Wardley was fairly long when I went on nemesis this morning.

    It was fairly busy today not packed but not quite a little busy
    I was very impressed by oblivion’s operations today - was pretty much walk on all day

    Ye I went yesterday when the weather was awful but the operations were still great. Th13teen has dropped quite a bit in my rankings at towers now. In fact it's probably last out of the coasters. The freefall drop, backwards part and first drop are good, the rest of the ride nothing really happens

    I thought it was running quite fast today? The first drop seemed a lot faster than before and the first few bunny hops seemed to lift me from the seat and there seemed to be a lot more force than usual. Not sure if it was just in my head because I think I thought that last time too. However I was near the back.

    I had a similar experience last time I rode Thirteen; I swear it grows on me every time!

    Thirteen could have been so much more. It’s a great ride at what it does BUT you bolt a good outdoor coaster to it with a launch element then you have a world class ride

    Are you referring to something like Hagrid at Islands of Adventure, out of interest?
