  1. I can't remember exactly which ones mainly because it's been a few years since I did Soarin and I don't really like it anyway, but, most of them were there if I remember. There was certainly the bit with the Golden Gate Bridge, the orange groves, the skiers on the mountain, the river and some others I'm forgetting. There was then also some bits of China thrown in as well. It was... bizarre. What was also weird is the ride system was a bit different in that you climbed to the very top of this building to load, and then the ride itself lowered down, so the screen was beneath you when you started
  2. The photos from me died there that day because my memory card decided to stop working /3 The Zoo in Beijing looks a bit run down, but, after Shanghai it was MUCH nicer! Loving the memories the report brings <3
  3. I'd certainly say get there as early as you can, because the operations are horrible. It wasn't even busy when we went last month, but, we still had to queue two hours for the SLC because the operations were so bad. We got caught out by arriving quite late, and were lucky to get on the credits before closing, but, we did what Robb suggested at the Beijing park, and it worked out really well. I'm not sure how busy it'll be when you go, I think we hit it during school holidays, but, I would avoid a weekend if you can. Especially Sundays! I wouldn't count on Bullet Coaster being open, but, a
  4. I agree, I thought the episode was pretty awful this week. I don't have a problem with a woman playing Frank, it's not a BAD idea, I have the problem with Mercedes playing it... It was just... awful. It wasn't that bad until she trotted out to do that song, then it died for me. The Touch-A moment was class, Rachel and Finn do make a great Brad and Janet, but, they just seemed to miss the point of Frank totally. Which is a real shame. Plus, their version of Time Warp really annoyed me as well. I know they want to be involved, but, Brad and Janet just wouldn't know the dance... They
  5. ^Yeah, it is, it's listed on the front of the new ones. This place looks quite fun, I might have to pop in if I'm ever in Manchester!
  6. The thing I find with Saw from talking to others about it is that it either beats you senseless, or you're totally fine on it. For me, it pretty much beats me senseless. I've come off it with visible marks where its smacked me in the face whilst the person next to me has loved it... I will be the first to admit Thorpe is bashed by us Brits for EVERYTHING, but, with Saw, I do think it genuinely sucks. It hurts me in ways that no other rides have done, especially compared to the other Eurofighters I've done. But, like I say, it seems to be a ride that either throws you around like a rag dol
  7. Um, a lot of mine are British stage actors that no-one will have heard of, but, whatever Met: Diablo Cody on the 2008 Behemoth Trip. It counts Ben Cohen (ex-England Rugby player and general FITTY) Jason Donovan (of Neighbours and crappy Pop fame) Oliver Thornton (British stage actor from Priscilla) Tony Sheldon (Australian stage actor, from Priscilla as well) Sheridan Smith (British actor from British shows like Two Pints of Lager, met her starring in Legally Blonde The Musical) Daniel Boys (from British reality show Any Dream Will Do, and was in Avenue Q at the time) Julie At
  8. I just finished Alan Wake today. It was GREAT. It might just be the fact I'm a MASSIVE Twin Peaks and Stephen King fan, but, it's AMAZING. Get it!
  9. That Spicy Peanut Butter Pizza was argubly the BEST pizza I have EVER had in my life! I mean, spice? Good. Peanut butter? Good. Pizza? Good. What's not to like? All pizza since has been vastly inferior
  10. Name: Ben Fry Age: 19 What is your roller coaster count? 472 What is your home park? Thorpe Park What is the nearest big city? London (I'm in it!) What is your occupation? Student About how many times a year do you visit a park (including your home park)? About 50 About how many times a year do you travel to a park that is not your home park? About 49 (I really hate Thorpe! ) When you travel do you go primarily to amusement parks or do you also try and hit other sites? I do try my best. Obviously some parks are so far out the way, or there's just no time, but,
  11. Natalie, I love you and your updates. Also, I don't remember this... ... being taken, but it's amazing! Stolen for avatar...
  12. I have a couple of "problems" with Superman and Toro. It's not that I don't like ejector coasters (Boulder Dash, Goliath, Phoenix...), I just don't think Intamin ejector is THAT great (... apart from Goliath ). I found Superman to have very "sharp" airtime, in that it throws you against the restraint, and then you're straight back down again, which I don't particularly enjoy. Especially since the (old) restraints really dug into my thighs and shins, causing quite a lot of discomfort. Toro I preferred, but, felt other than three hills and the drop it does... nothing. OK, those three hills and t
