    According to Taylor from Coaster Studios, Shambhala is his favourite B&M hyper. Everyone has different opinions. :)

    However, Shambhala is N0.27 for Taylor but yh i do respect his opinions, they're just quite controversial i guess, but then again he has more of a reason to rate Shambhala than we do, as it opened on his birthday!

    I mean the majority of enthusiasts rank these rides above Shambhala (i haven't done either yet)! I worded it wrong like i often do :p

    I have really enjoyed the content Shawn put on the channel since the turn of the year.

    Agree and i think getting rid of the irritating Alex Crump and the personality-less Harry Turnstiles has help a ton. Saying that though, it would be ashame to not see the likes of Lee, Martin and Brett on the channel as i feel these are likeable characters and add a bit to the trips.

    I have really enjoyed the informative videos such as the 'future predictions' and the recent 'how to get to...' videos.

    It’s been better that it’s been just him in the videos as it shows how much he cares about the history of the parks/rides with a lot of research.
    Charlotte has really just replaced Alex as the comic side theme park worldwide.
    I know he still meets up with people in the parks like he went to a theme park last year with his god daughter and her parents but they were not shown in the vlog.

    I’ll be honest, I think I actually enjoy the videos more now it’s just Shawn and Charlotte. I find Shawn a really interesting person to listen to on his own, and that’s what I’ve always liked about the videos as opposed to the “vlogstar” aspect and the wider community. So in that sense, I actually think I enjoy Shawn’s content a lot more now that it’s focused more around him and Charlotte, and the videos are a little more personal.

    Shawn's videos are probably tiding a lot of people over given the attractions are closed. He's also having to be more creative about content given the lockdown.

    I do find his audience a little "cult" though - dare say something sarcastic or even vaguely negative on Facebook posts and people are quick to attack. I have tried to reduce interactions of late. I guess TPWW is such a brand now and folk are protective over it. Probably been amplified after the crap Shawn was dealing with last year.

    My interest in theme parks and rides is purely that; it doesn’t transcend into worshipping people making videos about them.

    I suppose he occupies quite a niche space which some people will flock to, but I just find it all a bit odd personally.

    I occasionally see some of his videos, most of them don’t interest me, like him wondering round a theme park or playing planet coaster. However I’ve quite liked the latest ones on what he thinks will happen at parks in the future, or his options on them. The history videos are also good. I guess this pandemic has meant he’s had to change his style a bit to keep getting content during lockdown when he would probably be abroad getting videos at this time of year,

    To be fair, he has 250,000 subscribers now, so quite a large potential pool of fans who might want a greeting from him.

    I also think that you can sign up to this yourself, so if Shawn fancies doing it to really make some special surprises for his fans, I don’t see the issue, personally.

    The guy oozes charisma. I love his videos personally. I wouldn’t go as far as booking him for a cameo but if people are willing to pay then fair play to him.

    Can’t tell if this is sarcasm or not.

    Can we refrain from personal attacks on here please as I've already had to remove some posts. As said before, we're allowing this topic to enable discussion on Shawn's video content, it's not a place to go and dump bitchy comments.

    I really enjoy shawns cycling videos. I want to see him do more of them in the future. It would be nice to see him do some kind of tour, something like cycling from park to park, maybe for Charity.

    Coaster Bot did that in 2019 to raise money for Merlin's Magic Wand. They cycled from Chessington to Thorpe Park to Legoland
