  1. There are going to be a few of these dotted around the course, at least four I think. It seems like a good idea because it cuts down on the amount of supports and groundwork.
  2. I'm really happy to see the new forum live, well done everyone for all the work you did to get it back online and the work you have done since. The ability to react to a post is really useful to me because there are so many times when I want to acknowledge a post but don't want to reply for the sake of replying. Also really happy the topic sub-title is back as that is a great way of seeing at a glance the latest news is within a topic, particularly parks I'm less familiar with and don't normally follow.
  3. Stick a Raptor train on each rail and bingo, you have duelling Raptors.
  4. What an amazing trip report, thank you. So many great photos covering every aspect of the event, real in-depth information and lots of useful tips. It looks like the resort have done a really good job of creating this Halloween Horror Days event and I'm really surprised/happy to see it included in regular admission. Regarding Velocicoaster, it's a pretty naff name but I guess not really important. The coaster isn't the prettiest skyline-wise, but I am sure we would have said the same had Incredible Hulk been built 20 years after the park opened too. I am not a big fan of the Lost World st
  5. I would imagine it will be a pretty conservative year at best. While I feel there will be more stability (covid will still be around, but the threat will decrease as medication and treatment improves), I think there will be continued cutbacks while parks try and recoup the money lost from this season.
  6. Iron Gwazi, other upcoming SeaWorld parks roller coasters delayed to 2021
  7. Great! Whether this is a great coaster/layout or not, the setting looks really unique which will surely add to the experience. 24 riders per train (artwork showing four-across trains, but seven rows), so we're looking good for tight clearances too. This is one park in Europe I've not been, but I think it's pretty much at the top of my list, even without Monster.
  8. First Drop was a really good magazine when I was a member a few years ago. Is anyone still a member and how does it compare now? Obviously nothing compares to the immediacy of the internet, but it was still a great coffee table read.
  9. None of the websites I've looked at have said much more than that the people were told to stay in the boat, but I assumed that the 'stay on board' message was only the usual one they'd play out as part of a breakdown. Maybe the log was caught in a breakdown and queued up with other logs and it began to sink. I would be surprised if a cast member walked up to the log as it sunk and told the guests to stay on board, but I'm happy to be proved wrong. Most of the articles I found were just eyewitness accounts, terrible videos or hyperbole.
  10. It doesn't make much sense to start promoting rides that people can't ride for the foreseeable future, and that's assuming they're even able to film from them.
  11. Drayton Manor has filed a notice of intent that it will enter administration. In the UK this is when a company becomes insolvent and is essentially taken over by accountants who will try and either sell the park as an ongoing concern or wind it down meaning job losses and the sale of assets to try and recover money for creditors. Mellors Group (who own Fantasy Island, and are an entertainments company who tour many fair rides in the UK) were rumoured to be taking over 'Drayton Manor Operations Ltd' which might suggest a pre-packaged administration, or possibly a straight-forward sale that
  12. Certainly not the prettiest element but it looks amazing, so much happening in such a short length of track.
  13. Thanks, that's great to hear, I want to make Disney my first foreign trip as I can easily drive through the Channel Tunnel and was interested to know how well the social distancing measures were being followed/policed. There are always people with selective vision so I'm prepared for a few people to ignore the rules. I'm really happy to hear the park is looking better too. My last visit was near the beginning of the huge park-wide refurb so I could see how worn some parts were looking, but also how much work they were doing to sprinkle some of that Disney magic. It's the most beautiful cas
