  1. That looks shockingly bad. As a hardcore fan of the first one, and an average fan of the second I won't be buying this. Rapture just had more appeal...
  2. Ok, so all this travelling to themeparks and holidays usually means time on a plane. So inbetween eating/drinking and thinking of possible "accidental deaths" to the person behind that is kicking my seat, I tend to pull out a sketch pad and draw. So attatched are a few themepark related drawings I have done. You may have seen the images in disney parks. Anybody else got any drawings that they have done? Arrrgggghhhh! Cleanin up the earth. From the earth to the moon!
  3. Teeth, gets my vote, yes it was an awful film, but it made me cringe. lol
  4. Was dragged to see Get me to the greek, it was funny, but I don't think I would seeit a second time..
  5. It's not like loads of people are going to complain if they close a whole section?
  6. That's interesting. I didn't know that area had closed...
  7. I hate people! Why is it of late that people online, (in this case xbox live), have to scream, shout, swear and call you every name under the sun if you beat them or kill them? Can they really not take losing? Is there life going to come to a glorious and spectacular end if there scoreboard shows a loss? And secondly, people can't hold a conversation anymore. They just look at the floor and mumble.. Matt "I hate people greatly" Hields
  8. If it's always that quiet then I don't know how it has survived that long. That's madness!
  9. So, all the rides have been ridden and every area of the park explored, so what can I say? In short, the park isn't the worst one I have ever visited, but it has a feel that all the thought has gone into the wrong places. For example, the buildings are brilliant but the rides inside them leave a little something to be desired in the case of the piano riding simulator. There almost an after thought. Another thing that struck our attention is the queue lines. They are the widest and most complicated queue lines I have ever seen in my life! Seriously you could actually drive a Hummer H2 down them and not be worried about taking the wing mirrors off. Some of the lines even split into three paths that all lead to that same place.. If there were the crowds they were clearly expecting I feel that queue jumping would be rife! A pet hate of mine.... Grrrrr. So would I go back? Yes, but it isn't a park I would race back to in the near future! I leave you now with two pictures that I found rather amusing during our trip to Terra Mitica.. This is Terra Mitica's equivalent to a fastpass ticket.. Wouldn't you be disappointed if you actually bought one? And finally the mad rush to get out of the park at closing time! They had a great number of ONE! turnstyle open to exit the park! It was really that busy! Thankyou for reading my first review/post and look forward to writing my next trip report in the near future.
  10. With lunch out of the way its time to relax on the boat that travels around the parks waterways. As I said earlier, some areas of the park are themed really quite well.. The thing that lets it down is there is no space between each area. So Greece runs into rome... It starts to look a bit messy and confusing in places.. Spain is also suffering from a reasonably bad draught so water levels are really quite low. Also, the boats go around this whole section and there doesn't seem to be any way to access it on foot? Quite wierd if you ask me... Time to help Jason and the argonauts on a wierd indoor raft/dark ride.. Load area of the raft ride.. Has anybody else noticed the wierd scary looking jawas under the waterfall on this ride? They were creepier than thi13een at alton towers. LOL! The next darkride we encountered was this one. An interactive dark ride based around the minotaur... Except he only appears at the end.. Erm, there are some minotaurs on this minotaur ride right? Oh, and after several trips round this ride. This was the highest score we got. They really could do with better guns! Or scrap them altogether and leave it as just a darkride. Not a bad attempt at a dark ride mind.. Time to invade the kiddie coaster and gain an easy credit! POV!! And a special photo for the track fanatics complete with tyre drive! Drool to your hearts content!
  11. If I'm honest, I think the park is built in the wrong place.. A lot of older people visit Benidorm for a week or two on the beach, hardly your themepark nuts! Theres more adverts for the Mundomar wildlife park than there is for terra mitica, (even getting hold of any information or a park map was hard), and Mundomar was tiny in comparison, and incredibly busy. I prefer portaventura I think.
  12. Hello to all at themepark review! I decided that my first post should be a trip report so here goes.... Eeeeek.. Terra Mitica, Benidorm, Spain We had the trip planned for a while as there was plenty to do for everybody, and it was a nice break from last years Disney-a-thon.. I did some reading up and discovered that terra mitica was built to counteract the building of disneyland Paris... So I had a feeling it was going to be reasonably good in terms of theming and scale. On to the photos! View of Terra Mitica from a distance. The entrance is getting closer! Must..... Hold...... Excitement... In! Hippo's just aint my thing.... Even if they do have huge shields and swords.... First impressions are proving to be well themed... Just a lack a shade, and it was seriously baking hot that day! Our first ride of the day was the sky tower. A great way to see where everything was located. The wiring in spain never ceases to amaze me. They have the sound system for the park in the drains with wires hanging into the water! WTF!! Next up was the dodgems. Not quite sure why they were in the egyptian section of the park? Also note that all the cars are empty.......? .......Seriously, there is nobody in the park..... OMG!!!! People!! The park has some really well kept areas. Really quite pretty. Very high quality builds in some areas. Nearly touching the level of disney's buildings. The first thrilling ride of the day. A little bit short mind. I actually spent longer waiting for other people to turn up to fill the empty seats than I did on the ride. They were trying there best to fill up every seat, even if it meant sitting for 10 minuites. Time for the parks signature coaster. The mighty Colossus! Colossus through the trees. I've done quite a few wooden coasters in the past, but have never had the sensation of my brain smashing against the inside of my skull like that before. That ride is rough! So naturally I did it three times.... I can't even think in hindsight why I did it. LMAO! Leaving the body breaker... I now present to you the biggest WTF moment in the whole park. We are in the ancient greece section of the park. A rather nice entrance to a ride which is listed as the great simulator on the park map. But inside is a very old moving theatre with a film following a guy playing a piano thats on wheels as he races to a show. I couldn't work out what it had to do with greece, or anything for that matter. It was just odd. In fact it was so out of place that we sat in the cars for a good five minuites afterwards wondering what the hell we had just witnessed! Time to rest my rather confused brain on a giant swinging frisbee. Brain recovered! So lets shake it up again with a vekoma SLC! Time for lunch. And the vast food hall contains just two people, shame they were staff members.. Surely It has to get busier by mid afternoon? More Photos to follow soon!
