Some of my on ride photos New & heritage photos :- Do you remember when to get an on ride photo you had to pay for it without seeing it then you was waiting until it arrived in the post a month later. That’s what it was like at Alton Towers back in the late 80’s was it like that anywhere in the US ?

  9. It was one of those parks that’s so bad it’s good. How can you not like the World of timber, Singing animals shop & how could you forget Chimney Pot Walk in a hurry. It was like something out of Monty Python just waiting for the minister of silly walks to appear. I think because of the small amount of people that was ether predicted to be there or actually here they were running the ride of bear minimum staff & moving the them around to different rides. If this helps, we got a bit of paper at the entrance with the opening times. It was :- Waterforce 10:30 to 13:00 &am
  10. Do-it yourself fun when the coaster is closed While going for a new credit on the Isle of Wight in the UK at Blackgang Chinetoday I discovered something We got to the park just as the 400’ coaster closed (Yes I said 400’ well that’s what is says on the leaflet & website). “This exciting roller coaster is perched near the edge of vertical cliffs, climbs to 400' above the sea before dropping nearly 40' in twists and turns reaching speeds of up to 35mph” perched near the edge of vertical cliffs – it’s about 20 feet away from the edge. Coaster was only open for 25 minute peri
  11. Wild Wild West - Warner Bros. Movie World Madrid Looks GREAT, when you do it its !!!!!!!!!!! whats going on weres the air time. Nick "Why Why Bother" Collins
  12. I think you’re missing one of the points of rides. There designed to make you feel uneasy and feel like you’re going to fall out (It heightens the riders experience). I watched a program a couple of weeks ago and Stan Checketts from S&S was on about the fly swat. He was saying that they had designed the shoulder restraints on the ride to move to give the rider a sense of that they might fall out. I have noticed that they do that. The next time you do the ride pull the restraints down on your shoulders move you shoulders up & down and you will notice that they move. But the lap bar is
  13. I know vekoma rides are rough but not that rough !!!! Nick
  14. Are all Gerstlaur cars that bad. When we did Villain at Geauga Lake this year. I was well disappointed with it, I love all the CCI wooden coasters I have been on but that one has to be the worst coaster I have here been on. It was just so rough and painful. Nick

  20. Robb I got my copy today. It’s great I love it. I especially like the T shirt. Looks like you had a great time in Europe. Hope to join you at some point during your trip to the UK next year. Nick “Sounds like you enjoyed the SLC in Walibi World” Collins
  21. Watched it yesterday. Thought it was good, but felt like it was an extended TV episode and not a cinema event like it should on been. Yes lot of jokes to watch out for happening in the background & foreground. Also something’s in it have been done before in Wallace & Gromit. It’s not a bad film at all just could of been better. Cracking cheese Gromit Nick “Just my opinion” Collins
