    Themes you want to see at parks

    @Rollercoaster David that would be an epic idea…. I have always loved the idea of having an Ankh Morpork street with rides build within…. Sod hogwarts have the unseen university tower as the areas focal point. Also you would have to have a clax tower there somewhere.

    Fury 325 vs Intimidator 305

    I have only done Fury and I think it would take something pretty special to top it as far as hyper/gigas go.

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi | 2022

    I am pretty sure that they would take any minimal warping of timber after a year or so when they design the ride….. I’m sure the park are just as keen to get the ride open

    Theme Parks that Havent Received a coaster in Years

    I can think of Palace Pier in Brighton…. Their last caster was 2000 I think (Wild Mouse) I know for a fact that the guys are pushing for replacements but I can’t see any new coasters for a long time. Well with the managing company buying Lightwater Valley and all that.

    Small News From The Theme Park Industry

    I think the claim can still stand as the original lift mechanism is the original and the layout has not changed. What old wooden coaster do you know that has any original wood left. It’s the fact that the layout, mechanism and experience is the same as when it was first built. I’m in the camp...

    Tony’s Chocolonely Chocolate Circus | Zaandam Netherlands | Indoor Park

    @Matt N what planet are you on? You’re optimism is going in overdrive. If they are making money out of expensive chocolate, the majority of that money would go into....... well the chocolate side of the business. yes they are building an attraction but expecting a top end coaster is just far...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Yeah sounds like you have a P3 mask, they are for large particles I.e dust and things like that, not bacterial particles. It’s not going to stop all viruses if any.

    No Six Flags Dubai...for now.

    Money runs out, it’s too bloody hot over there and their tight rules and customs and lastly the local culture obviously does not warrant such demand. Not a good combo for a world theme park destination.
