    TPW has absolutely being going great guns this week doing a park every day showing off the new updates and any construction works, he hasn't been going on many rides (especially at Legoland) because he can just go back on a school day.
    I do however want to point out his tribute to Prince Phillip in today's vlog which I really like.

    Has anyone else noticed he has lost weight recently?! Looking very swish...think I have a guilty crush on him! My partner jokes that we are in a thuple with the guy as he’s always on the big screen.

    Funny you should say that, in some of his later "lock-down" videos he did this year where he was indoors just talking to camera I noticed that he didn't look well at all in some of them. He does look a bit better in the videos he's done since the parks have opened. I'm not overly keen on him (especially after all the stuff that's come out over the last 18 months and stories I've heard) but I would never wish ill health on him. Hopefully if he was ill, he's getting better.

    I remember seeing a post by him on social media around February, declaring he lost two stone over the holidays.

    Shows what a diet consisting mainly of theme park food does to you.

    There are usually healthier options available at parks if you're willing to seek them out.

    Of course if the only foods that you like are dry hot dogs and fried chicken then you're not exactly going to be in peak physical condition.

    What are the healthy options at Alton towers out of interest?

    Woodcutters does salads now too, albeit uninspired ones.

    Some reasonably healthy sandwich options at Corner Coffee.

    Just make yourselves some sandwiches or whatever and take them with you in a back-pack. Not hard at all.

    That’s what we’ve done for about the past 2-3 years; even with MAPs, I think it’s been a good couple of years since we last ate on park. We went to the RCR for an evening meal in 2019, but other than that, I’m struggling to think of a time that we’ve eaten lunch from a park food outlet after about 2017/2018.

    That's exactly what I do and have always done! I only buy food if it's a late close (after tea time), as I need two meals. :)

    I have removed a post, and the subsequent responses, concerning very strong personal opinions of those involved with TPW. This forum is public, and no place for such comments, as has been said many times in here previously by other members of the TS team. If we can go back to the actual content produced by Theme Park Worldwide, that would be excellent.

    Thanks.

    So in other words, no freedom of speech? about right.

    It's not about freedom of speech. It's about being polite and kind towards other members of the wider theme park community, and where appropriate, being constructively critical about their work.

    A friendly reminder of our member expectations:

    Please feel free to drop me or any other team member a PM if you'd like to discuss this further. This is the end of the matter as far as the public forum goes, so let's return to discussion about the content produced by Theme Park Worldwide, please. :)

    Oh boo hoo

    On a much brighter note , TPWW this week have been to all the London Merlin Attractions , and tomorrow there’s a video coming about the history of the Towers . It seems focussing on just Shawn and Charlotte has been great for the channel, not to mention the lockdown helping them to diversify and think about what content to post . They also are great listening to the community , one example is their recent food blog / guide of Towers !
