    Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

  1. It's also the vast, waterfall like rust staining under the logo at the front of the station for me. Classy!
  2. So what do we make of this? As well as the postponed 'World of David Walliams' featuring 'Gangsta Granny: The Ride' opening this season, Alton Towers have rented three classic fairground rides they are calling 'pop up attractions' from UK showmen. They have been branded 'The Retro Squad' which accompanies some unique marketing... Roller Disco (Waltzers located in Dark Forest) – get ready to slide and swirl round and round, faster and faster in a head-spinning, totally rad experience Mixtape (Smashing Jump located in X-Sector) – you’ll be in for some majo
  3. The big concrete thing in the middle of the coaster no longer looks like a big concrete thing!
  4. Starting with the big entrance structure - am all for iconic landmarks, but don't think it has aged well! SeaWorld have put in some good investments recently, so hopefully they will continue to pour money in to how the park looks too.
  5. Awesome looking ride to add to an already excellent collection of coasters. Hopefully they will give the station and queue area a bit more love before it opens to match the standard of theming elsewhere in the park.
  6. I have ridden it (my shoulders remember it well), and a fair amount of other rides that have moving platforms and / or trains. Appreciate station stops are activated either manually or automatic from time to time, but the very nature of something continuously moving provides more of a sense of urgency than a static train just sat there. If they didn't, then parks and manufacturers wouldn't bother to install them. Successful examples are Hagrid's, Arthur, Phantom Manor, Rip Ride Rocket and so on...
  7. Yeah I can see that, but Dollywood has stated 'extended' in their blog text, which is clearly a slight error.
  8. Well and truly From Dollywood's blog - https://blog.dollywood.com/index.php/2021/03/09/top-3-dollywood-signs-spring-is-here/ Intrigued to see how they are 'extending' it, unless there's more changes in areas outside of the photos.
  9. That's a really bizarre move - am interested to learn why as that portion of the ride was great.
  10. Looking good, and love the color scheme. Just hope the white can stay white, without looking weathered or rusty eventually. We all know how some B&M's look before a good pressure wash! Great news on the continuously moving station - love how it stresses a sense of urgency for oncoming riders.
  11. Haha, it seems you aren't a real enthusiast unless you have experienced this sensation.
  12. That photo of Nitro running in the snow is hilarious and awesome. The majority of B&M rides can run in sub-zero temperatures, and as the pacing is so quick on Fury I would not expect it to be an exception. I remember working at Alton Towers and the only reason Nemesis wasn't able to run in snowy and icy conditions was due to icicles on the track - so maintenance went around and smashed them all off to get it open.
  13. I felt Oziris was an excellent example of a new school B&M Inverted, where Banshee's long and gliding inversions lacked the wow factor for me. I'm grateful that Monster is able to fit in the space, and am just hoping it rides more like an original Batman clone than a wing coaster
  14. Can't wait for the new photo opportunities of Valkyria from the hotel. Will breath life in to that whole back end of the park.
  15. So do we know which version of the inverted trains this will have? Not that they affect the enjoyment too much, but the originals provide a preferable ride experience for me, over the trains with the vest restraints. Hopefully this will ride more like Oziris than Banshee.
