    I don't know about any of you, but I personally really enjoyed that! Nice to get a deeper insight into the ride's development, and nice to see some fellow enthusiasts in there too!

    One thing I am surprised about, though, is where was our good friend Shawn? He didn't appear at all!

    Was there no mention of Theme Park fans getting off their T*t's in the Tavern all day and not giving a toss about the rides?

    All of our years of good work undone in a matter of minutes :p

    What an utter waste of time. That was little more than a 50 minute advert for the park. Almost zero information was actually included.

    Although, quote of the show has to be Nat,
    "I came fifty two times in one year". :p

    Were all of the enthusiasts featured TowersStreeters, then?

    I actually really enjoyed hearing the stories of enthusiasts, how they came to love what they do.

    I’ve never been on a meet up so never met anyone in person, but it seems, we’ve got more in common than just theme parks. Georgia’s story particularly resonated!

    Props to C4 for that. Well done, interesting and balanced documentary!
