  1. Hi all, It's with a heavy heart that I pop back on to TPR to let you know that on the 1st of June 2014 Peter Davies or Mr. Pete as he was known on the forum passed away. He had been fighting Skin Cancer for just over 4 years and had been diagnosed with stage 4 Cancer in 2013. I know there are a few of you that got to meet Pete briefly when we were in the US during 2008 and I just thought you should know. Pete's Profile
  2. Silverstar at the end of the day and the end of the C&C 2010 Oktoberfest trip. What a way to finish!
  3. Camping & Coasters 2010 sets off Saturday morning and we'll be catching a few parks as we travel down to Munich. We'll be there Wednesday evening and all day Thursday and Friday but Wednesday evening is all about my 400th Coaster and Olympia is going to be a nice one to have as a milestone. See you there
  4. Hey all, Not been doing too much this year ride wise due to setting up my new business venture however a few of us mad Brits are off to Europe in a couple of weeks stopping off at a few parks as we head for Oktoberfest. If any of our European cousins are out and about at the parks look out for the BlueBuzzard shirts and/or baseball caps as that'll be us. Just so you know roughly where we'll be here's our itinerary :- Saturday 18th September - De Efteling Sunday 19th September - Toverland Monday 20th September - Phantasialand Tuesday 21st September - Day off driving down the Rhin
  5. Seeing as I'm working nights this week no actual beer post but more of an announcement. I am now officially registered as a Brewer in the UK and can now sell my beer commercially! So I am no longer just a drinker of Real Ale I am officially a brewer of Real Ale. Blue Buzzard Ales a Super-Micro Brewery.
  6. Had a spot of bother with the web server recently. Should be OK now.
  7. Just seen this and it is truly a sad day for everyone involved in the industry, words are never enough when someone passes on. My sincere condolences go out to all the family and the staff at Holiday World.
  8. Realising it was two years ago to the very day I was out in the USA riding some of the greatest coasters on the planet I was feeling a little down and suffering from withdrawal symptoms. So I set off to shift those Coaster Blues by getting a new credit and visiting one of my favourite UK parks Flamingoland. Armed with my shiny new Club TPR pass I arrived just before the gates opened and was first in the car park. After a few minutes of "What on Eath is this?" as I presented my Club Card they soon found the correct code and I was duely given the £6.50 discount on entry. First stop had t
  9. Can't wait to check this ride out later this year. I love De Efteling to bits and it's always a highlight of any European trip for me.
  10. Not been on TPR much recently (life kinda got in the way) but I'm back, signed up to club TPR and this year there's a few parks on the horizon. First up is Flamingoland on Monday 7th June and then Thorpe Park on the 9th. I've not been to either park since they added their new coasters so I'll be credit scoring once more. Later in the year the Camping & Coasters trip is being revived and I'll be hitting De Efteling, Toverland, Phantasialand, Holiday Park, Oktoberfest and Europa Park with the same three friends who joined me on our USA 2008 tour. We'll be in Munich at the same ti
  11. Having a HobGoblin this evening as I'm working (from home I may add.) Tomorrow it'll be up to the local and some Fallons Ales in The Black Horse. Probably on the Dark Prince unless Hex Original is back on. Off to the Great Welsh Cider and Beer Festival in a couple of weeks time and then the weekend after I've got my first festival as a Brewer lined up.
  12. Can't disagree too much with those comments net. I know I am but one tiny voice screaming when the general public is blinded by the BS! I go back to my earlier comment about them not knowing what they want to be. If they want to be a car park coaster park then be that. Just plonk a new ride in, do very little with it and get on with pulling in the punters. If they want to be a themed park then don't keep making half hearted attempts at it put the money in and make it the best it can possibly be. They always seem to start off with good intentions and then lose direction once the ride is in
  13. Been there ridden 'em got the T-Shirts. Top Thrill was FAR better than Kingda Kak though!!! Not bitter at all as I think we have some amazing parks and rides in Europe but when I see parks with a fraction of the budget doing a vastly superior job it annoys me because if they can do it and spend a tiny amount in comparison then why can't Alton, Thorpe and said others do it SO much better? Take Mystery Mine at Dollywood for example. It looks fantastic, the ride itself is just a custom Eurofighter but the way it's themed inside an out just makes it so awesome. The attention to detail i
  14. @netdvn The trouble is I don't think Awful Towers themselves know what they want to be and there in lies the problem.
  15. I haven't bothered with the place for at least three years now and I can't see anything in the video, hype or assorted material that changes my opinion of the place. As for Cedar Fair I've been to plenty of their parks but the difference is that they don't set themselves up as anything other than a park full of rides and if there's space we'll cram another one in. If you know that before hand then there's no disappointment. Awful Towers has the most amazing backdrop of any park in the World what with the fabulous Gardens and the House but they always come up short when it comes to real
