    CoasterForce COVID-19 Vaccination Poll

    Fully Pfizered. Had a sore arm for about half a day with the second jab, got really lucky, first one killed my arm for days.

    Your Favourite Ever CF Lives

    Haha no which is answers why we’ve never met again! I had a really random meet up in September 2012 with Ian, Darren B, Peter and Rachel in Holland and the Smiler meet up in May 2013 then I dropped off the radar. Met a girl, got married, had kids that life took over really haha.

    Your Favourite Ever CF Lives

    Lovely memories from everyone there. I’d love a care free goon trip again if I ever got the chance. Couple of things from me… I know this is about the best but @furie hit the nail on the head about Oakwood in 2006. The rain was, in typically Welsh fashion, absolutely relentless. That ‘games...

    Cancelled theme park projects you wish had come to fruition

    Haven’t read through the topic so apologies if it has been mentioned but the flamingo land woodie that never came to fruition! Would have been the best coaster they’ve ever had. I remember their rides operations manager Nick Buckley doing an interview saying they’d put it on hold as their...

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2022

    To be honest if we’re going to assess how Flamingo Land is doing based on their operations the park would have been defunct years ago 😂 Kumali was waiting for a part which is now here and I believe has been running again. It is a disgrace the park opened at full price with so much either not...

    LWV confirm removal of several rides

    Living in the immediate catchment area for LWV I thought the park provided a viable alternative to Flamingo Land and on some occasions, certainly events, came up trumps over Flamingo Land. I think the direction they’ve moved in now makes them no longer comparable to Flamingo Land and more...

    It’s still there, it’s at the bottom of the two corkscrew elements. I think only one section of track was painted (probably a tester?!) and they’ve done nothing with it since.

    Flamingo Land | Unknown | Intamin 10 Inversion Coaster | 2022

    I went yesterday. Obviously nothing of note happening. I took a panoramic shot of the full thing - tried to upload it on here but apparently in 2021, 5.8mb is a shockingly large file size?! Anyway I sent it to RCDB who’ve put it on their site if you were interested -...

    I think culture change in a place with seasonal staff can be more of an efficient process than in most places but there never seems to be a desire for culture change. Quite happy with piss poor operations.

    What other hobbies do you have?

    Love football (or soccer) to the Americans. Middlesbrough FC for my sins. Also taken up a bit of gardening growing my own veg this year. Been a decent starter year with courgettes, tomatoes, carrots but going to ramp it up next year.

    Your longest theme park hiatus?

    It’s hard to tell really. Probably now. I visited Alton Towers in May 2019 and stayed in their enchanted village. The visit was predominantly for the kids though I got on Th13teen with the eldest. I visited flamingo land on Halloween last year but again it was for the kids and didn’t actually...

    Park map has been updated confirming 2021 opening for this coaster. The park map also has the coaster in grey (as per planning permission) with Union Jacks on the trains... I know maps are usually illustrative purposes only etc but colours and stuff are usually accurate... Can’t be bothered...

    Quimera accident, La Feria Chapultepec closure, Montana Russa removal, etc.

    Careful what you say before a certain cretin wades in off his own site telling you you are NOT QUALIFIED TO MAKE SUCH SUGGESTIONS! When I used to stay at Flamingo Land when I was younger I remember speaking to the operations chap about how regularly they needed to replace/repair the wheels on...

    They changed the original question. The whole project is costing that (not just the coaster) so construction, groundwork etc but still doesn’t add up.
