^If you can't ride an attraction due to epilepsy I don't think that watching a POV is the solution
I was at chessington on monday....i thought i saw your partner early in the day waiting outside vampire (i've seen you post pictures on here)
It was our annual 'take the kids out of school for a long weekend and get on lots of rides without queue's' weekend....we did Towers friday...london merlin stuff sat/sun and Chessington monday
We had a great day it's still a good park off peak....my little lad was wearing a Wicker Man hoodie...he got lots of attention off people all weekend because of it....so wouldn't take it off his back
sorry to go off topic
Ride operations and opening times were so much better at Chessington compared to Alton. Even the staff were so much more welcoming. Take note Alton. My only complaint with Chessington is that they close the Rattle snake ride at 3pm on quiet days, nothing on the website, map or on park saying that this ride closes early.
Back on topic!
If I was allowed to film on smiler I probably would record every lap I do and work out which lap was the fastest/slowest and the average lap time, yes, I’m that sad.
Don't you time lapse anyway?

It's the same as at gigs.
Why waste time trying to film an experience...actually enjoy it, and look back at the memories.
The old lady in this picture says it all.
The only reason to film is to capture that once in a lifetime never to be repeated reaction to something, personally I couldn't give a crap about a forward facing POV, its the rear facing stuff that is unique and never makes it to YT.
I'd probably argue that if someone knows they are being filmed, their 'reactions' would probably play up to the camera far more than normal.
But that's the cynic in me
Guess it depends if they know whether they're being filmed or not.
.... Nah, too easy.
duhh lol, I'm getting old, I only see half of what is written nowadays...
Europa have no issues at all with chest filming. Towers are just making a hash of everything re social media at the moment.
I'm 30, but that picture makes me angry.
In the last week or so the entrance sign at the rapids has been replaced and the new version states cameras and phones are banned.
Possibly a slight overreaction if it's just to spite a former staff member but there you go.
Any photos please?
That takes spite to a whole new level if true.
No cos the signs say cameras are banned...
Sorry but it's hardly to spite anyone IMO. Either the rule was changed a while back and the sign wasn't updated, or they were updated thanks to this "incident". The park is covering its back, nothing more.
Whether or not that is the case, it looks like it's done as as "screw you" to Shaun. And that can be just as bad from a PR point of view.
They have to update the sign if it's out of date. This is what we were asking for - clarity. Previously it was a gray area. Now the rules are clear.
There's no reason for TPW fans to be angry but if they are, it's only a small fraction of visitors anyway
