    I've seen this several times before, but it still looks so alien!

    Having ridden both I think Oblivion is the best, the deep tunnel adds so much to the ride experience!

    It just looks so odd doesn’t it?

    The size of those supports though, incredible

    Wow ok next time i see Oblivion I will try not to think of how small the thing looks from ground level. Got to love John Wardley.

    The colour scheme on G5 is atrocious on another note

    The tunnel mouth entrance is the half way point in height of the ride. Oblivion goes just as deep underground as it is above the ground.

    With the smiler now having a SRQ, does anyone think the park will reintroduce it to other rides next season?

    I can see it coming back to oblivion, there was no reason to get rid of it from oblivion (I’m including cost cutting as a reason just this once).

    There's a crappy looking bike lock area as you head towards the admissions plaza from the coach/car parks.
    It looked to be the type you can only lock one wheel to.

    Ok so if I recycle a bottle at the coca cola thing then I get 50% off entry to the park. Does anyone know what the cost of an adult Day ticket is and therefore how much half price would be

    If only there was some mad invention where you could type words and questions into a machine and then the answers would show up on a screen in only a few seconds? I visited earlier in the year so I'll just go and get the map they gave me on the gate and see if there is a pricelist on there. Be back in about 40 minutes. ;)

    So it's £56 and 50% off is £28. That's still expensive imo but I'll go with it

    Ah, I remember when the full adult rate was £28. Those were the days.

    In my day, gates were open 26 hours a day, AND park owner would pay us for turning up.
