Personally thought Magnus was a great ride….
I know it’s closed but is it still SBNO

I remember early Terra Mitica, about 3-4 years in. Thought it was a great park.

we used to have a place near Benidorm (Altea) so visited regularly. It’s amazing to see its decline.
Slightly off topic but I've thought for a while that Looping Group (the ones who know own Drayton) should buy Terra Mitica. RMC Magnus Collosus and maybe some other family rides and such like and you've got a solid park. Stick a next gen Vekoma in and you've got a top park in Spain.

You'd have a better park but it would still suffer from the issues plaguing the current offering, to the point where I am not sure you'd get a return.

Not directly related to the park, but I just watched this interesting video:

On the 14th of May, 1988, a group from the Radcliff First Assembly of God Church spent the day at the Kings Island Amusement Park in Ohio. The trip went well, and when the group piled back onto the church’s yellow school bus in the evening they were exhausted but blissfully happy. As they set off on their return journey, however, they had no idea that the actions of just one man would mean that more than a third of their number would never make it home.



Heartbreaking. :(
