    No; I've heard it is a head-basher!

    It's certainly not Nemesis, but it's worth a circuit or twelve :)

    That's a shame skyscraper but glad you had a good time. I look forward to experiencing the park for the first time next month, if odyssey is running I'm defiantly going on it as you've got to make up your own opinion of ride experiences.

    Not going on Odyssey when its open?! That means you have to return to awful Skegness though...

    Utter lunacy...

    Yeah, maybe i'll be brave and ride it next time.

    Millennium scared me a bit as, due to my height, the restraint didn't lock as tightly as i would have liked; there was a gap between it and me. I held it down but if i let go it moved up slightly. great ride though; very smooth!

    It was good thank you, the park is certainly a bit weird having market areas, a funfair over the road from it, a odd bodge of food outlets and large arcade areas but overall worth a visit. Odessey was open with a small queue thoughout the whole day, even going down to walk on at times. As a ride I found it to be one of the better coasters in the country, its the biggest invert I've been on by some margin and the feeling when at the top of the lift hill is pretty impressive and I found the ride to be not that rough/ much of a head banger at all, it has parts where it marauders around a bit but has some intense moments. Millennium was down all day so didn't get to ride it and some other rides operations were a bit hit and miss. The Beast is one of, if not the best flat ride I've done in the UK with a intense cycle.

    (Sorry for the double post) G-Force is officially closed forever, what do you think will replace it?

    Parts for the Huss Frisbee and Magic have already been spotted on site.

    Yeah, someone told me on YouTube. Just watched videos of them; I recognise the Frisbee but I don't think I've seen a Magic before!

    Yeah I hadn't either! It's not meant to be very good though.

    Ah, Fantasy Island. Millennium was my first coaster with inversions back in 2002 at the tender age of eleven. I went again in 2013 whilst staying with a mate who lived in the sticks behind Skegness and I insisted we take a trip there. They were alternating between running Millennium and Odyssey and we got there just in time for the last ride on Odyssey and got to go around twice!

    Nope, it' from Mellors Fantasy Island park in Dubai that closed earlier in the year.

    And yes, that is one heck of a coincidence XD
