    It's probably the best comparison, to be fair.

    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    Lots of people saying it's broken or there is an issue. Thinking logically, would they simply not be running checks here? I'm considering things like the validating the train's stability on the lift-hill in case of evac requirement. I highly doubt there is a fault. Edit: Just seen Josh's...

    Thorpe Park | Hyperia | Mack Hyper Coaster | 2024

    The rumour mill is annoying me today, there's no basis for the 7pm rumour I can see, wind speeds are ridiculous even at ground level even now, security can't move you on or stop you filming on Monk's Walk as it is a public footpath. Chertsey (actually half the country) is on a yellow warning of...

    No, I'd say it's pretty unlikely unfortunately. The weather (and wind) is pretty atrocious.

    Monopoly isn't British, it's American. The London game we know is a variation on the original.

    It looks good, like really good. Almost Velocicoaster good. Whilst I'm chomping at the bit for a back row ride on this, I wouldn't mind sitting in those front seats either.

    Thorpe apparently has quite a large share of visitors doing so via public transport, I cannot find the numbers however. Chessington have also recently been promoting the fact they're walkable from Chessington South station too. I think BPB's share is huge too.

    Cheers, I didn't save it earlier. I cannot believe we're discussing a potential giga in Bedford, seriously.

    Universal considering UK theme park in Bedford

    I believe I am visiting family in Portsmouth that day so probably not, unless I can make the midweek one. Um, so anyone else notice the info pack (now 404ing) mentioning 115m max ride height... they're allowed a giga... this obviously doesn't mean they will, but it means they can.

    Universal considering UK theme park in Bedford

    I'm actually hoping they follow up with my email, as I do genuinely mean everything I'm writing here, but I do want to see the park built in the most environmentally conscious way possible. It can be a real net benefit to the local area if done right, and whilst yes I want a Theme Park on my...

    https://universalukproject.co.uk/ I have submitted my feedback via their local consultation portal which is now available. Naturally I have supported the project, but have highlighted the need for strong public transport access on both the Midland Main Line and East West Rail, as well as the...

    Let's see. I just cheekily asked Thorpe if they could confirm or deny. I actually never noticed there were two zero car designs, but you're right, Blue Fire's is the better.

    So according to the Twitter rumour mill (which I usually ignore, but hey it got Universal Bedford right!), testing should begin tomorrow with a possible train reveal today.

    Colossus Partial Retrack (Thorpe Park)

    Yeah, I remember it too. I remember the dizziness after, one of those epic defining moments in any enthusiasts story. I totally get the Blitz Bahn point to, similar feeling without the intensity. Nicky, we have a mission for you this season.

    Colossus Partial Retrack (Thorpe Park)

    https://www.attractionsource.com/history/from-the-archives/samurai/ A reminder of just how good it looked at Chessington. I'd have been 11-12 back then so I definitely remember being quite intimidated by it too.

    YAY Merlin!

    Ah but that sweet bank holiday overtime pay I hope you're getting at least? One of the big factors in yesterday was definitely the 10-6 opening, this really should be the absolute minimum and we would no longer consider going to a park when hours are less than that. Opening the gates at 9 is...
