  2. According to BBC News TV today, Merlin are also closing SAW at Thorpe Park, and Dragons Fury and The Rattlesnake at Chessington today until further notice until new safety protocols are put in place. From ITV News: LINK
  3. High quality journalism from our local news website... Alton Towers rollercoaster crash: Cheltenham mum and son on ride 24 hours earlier Read more at http://www.gloucestershireecho.co.uk/Alton-Towers-rollercoaster-crash-Cheltenham-mum/story-26620933-detail/story.html#0fOvgmCyZDeI7GiJ.99 LINK
  4. Great TR so far. Didn't visit the other movie studios when I was out there - which I kind of regret. Looking forward to seeing more!
  5. Voted for option 2 as I prefer the larger picture across the top of the front page. To me it looks cleaner. Could live with option 1, but I think it looks busier with the smaller top picture and twitter comment box.
  6. Love this! I'm going to have to have a dig through my old photos now...
  7. Oh dear... Bad news for Rameses Revenge (Huss Topspin) today... BBC NEWS ARTICLE
  8. This was a great trip, seriously! All of the hotels are stunning in their own way. It had been about 6 years since I had last been here and I totally wondered why I hadn't been back sooner. A thoroughly enjoyable evening, with some very strange moments. Much fun!
  9. 2010 = Flights cancelled due to Spanish air strike. 2011 = I booked flights, no-one else did... 2012 = We made it... just. A very funny weekend, some for all the wrong reasons. But you know, I did get to play Cards Against Humanity for the first time... Great set of photos as always Divv!
  10. Just get a credit card which doesn't charge to use abroad. There are a number of cards for UK residents that actually have better rates of exchange than most Bureau de Change and Travel Agents, as well as not charging to use them - Halifax Clarity being one example. I really like the idea and can't wait to try it out on my next visit.
  11. Festyland is a small theme park situated inside the Caen ringroad, in the Normandy area of France. The carpark is on one side of the ringroad, and you have to go through quite a dark, dank, some would say festy... tunnel to get to the park entrance, which doesn't really look like an entrance. Anyhow, quite a few kiddy rides, 2 credits, a Disko, a drop tower, a broken Frisbee and random theming everywhere, made this a good way to spend a couple of hours before getting back on the ferry to the UK. Oh, and my 7 month old daughter went on her first ride here... Here are some pictures... Welcome to the car park... OMG what is this place? Welcome to Festyland... Looks like how the new entrance at Seaworld San Diego will look... Festy Telegraph... Festy map... Festy carousel... Festy baby on a carousel... No - she isn't festy really... well maybe after a number 2... I really don't understand what this place is all about... Ah, finally, a credit... Hi Larry! The Drakkar Express... Ok, this just shows that I am losing more hair... A drop tower themed to something about Pirates... As was the Disko next to the field... Just YES! I may have had more hair, or an axe in my head, I really don't know... Pirate themed play area for the kids... Now thats more like it... Who is that I see...? Yes, a credit whore... She dragged me here... HONEST! A viking themed land... Eretic was unfortunately closed... Not the Valhalla we all know and love... We dined here, but there were no dancing girls. Caen-Caen, do you get it....??? Random titanic theming inside the vintage cars... And random Titanic pictures... This was the exit to the park... Bye bye Festyland... And then my phone told me we were in Iceland... how very strange....?
  12. Had a great afternoon with you all. Love Scarefest, and really enjoyed Terror of the Towers, as well as Carnival of Screams. The Sanctuary had some very good effects, a great story, great effects, just needed a bigger ending. Fab TR as always Divv!
  13. Loving the updates Divv! I loved this park when we were over there!!
  14. The website says the line will be paused from 5pm - 9pm EST for a Gizmodo special event....
  15. So many unanswered questions about this and Orlando... grrr Personally, I think it is a good idea - I'm sure this brand has longevity. So, as to where Hogwart's and Forbidden Journey will go - anyone thinking bye-bye Waterworld?? and even Shrek??
  16. Great report and pictures Jason and Andrew. Can't wait to get back there to ride this thing!!!
  17. ^ Done and done. I really liked this park alot!! The Comet was superb, a real surprise of the trip!
  18. ^ Yep the fanboys have been going slightly crazy...
