  1. When I flew to Beijing in 2003 the Austrian Airlines A330 had this feature. Was pretty cool when landing (While looking out for the Great Wall too )
  2. I'll stick with Opera. The best browser by far.
  3. I was over there in 2003 for 2 weeks and I had my picture taken by locals about 50 times. When not having a picture taken you just get stared at. Felt like I was famous for 2 weeks lol. I guess since the Olympics and all the tourists it's calmed down a bit as it's getting more normal to see westerners now.
  4. Mutainyu section? If so I've been on that alpine coaster and it's awesome. Watch out for the random chinese on the mountain telling you to brake lol
  5. Looking forward to these updates. I spent a bit of time in Beijing in 2003 and really miss the place. Have fun
  6. I'd go with that. Although Grand National comes a very close second to the wild mouse. It's about time we actually got some new decent coasters around these parts. It's starting to get quite embarassing
  7. Brilliant trip report. I actually lol'd quite hard reading those captions
  8. Never thought that the place that I was born (Hucknall) would ever be on TPR lmao. Glad you enjoyed it. I used to go to the Goose Fair every year when I lived in Nottingham.
  9. Thanks for taking the time to post the pictures. Must get back to there next year
  10. My Call of Duty PC clan's site got hacked by a Turkish hacker about 2 months ago.
  11. That fair just looks truly awesome! The beer tent looks cool too
  12. I enjoyed the style of that trip report. Photos with a paragraph or two underneath. Looks like it was a good day. I will be there in 2 weeks for a weekend.
  13. Great pics. Thanks for posting them. Every year I see these parks in mainland Europe/Scandanavia and they are getting better and better. World class even. Our parks here in the UK are getting worse and starting to "fall beind". Cheap air travel here in Europe though is starting to make even the general public go for weekends away at places like Europa Park instead of Alton Towers. They need to stop thinking that were an isolated island and the custom will not go anywhere else and start thinking or realising that people are now starting to go elsewhere. PS Just consumed a couple of Stella Artois. Hence the passionate post lol.
  14. Everytime I see pictures of the funhouse at Southport it always makes me sad because it makes me think of the Funhouse in Blackpool. Basically for anybody that doesn't know Valhalla is built on the site of the legendary funhouse that burned down in 1991. Blackpools funhouse was bigger and better in everyway. Sadly there arn't many pictures on the net of it. Very sorely missed.
  15. Yep, I live about half a mile away and it's being attached to the existing Theme Park. Progress is slow though. Should be good to take the little one there though.
  16. ^Canal Turn. Basically the ride is "kinda themed" to the UK Grand National race.
  17. The snails are awesome. My first proper ride as a kid. Also The scenic at Gt Yarmouth was also my first coaster and I loved it. Still do actually.
  18. I thought by the itinery on the front page they were at PWH Today? I could be wrong. I love the updates but I understand that you are extra busy this trip and I appreciate all the effort you put in to getting the updates online.
  19. Maybe they are, Maybe it's a secret side trip like Coney Beach. Maybe i'm wrong. Maybe.
