  1. The whole car/train thing. For me, it depends on the amount of actual cars on a train. For a Eurofighter, I know it's made up of two single articulated cars, but I still call the whole unit a car and not a train. Needless to say with something like a B&M invert, I say a train. I guess it can be, at times, subjective but there are occasions when saying 'car' is stupid. But that's really pedantic, regardless.
  2. I would imagine it has something to do with the central flat rail. Looking at videos where you get to see the underside of the train, it looks as if there are two wheel assemblies, at the front and back of the car, that grip on to the central rail. Obviously this is fine in a straight section with no laterals, but when there are corners, the side wheels need to be utilised, hence the change in track type. This may be wrong, but from observation it appears to be the answer.
  3. Nice report Nathan. The City Museum looks so awesome! Definitely a place I'd hit if I was in the area so I'm jealous that you got to go. Looking forward to the next installments!
  4. El Toro in the back, obviously. Cyclone at SFNE in the back seat is up there. I didn't expect too much from it and then suddenly I was slammed out of my seat. It terrified me, but it was great!
  5. In a minibus, for some reason my friend had his seat belt undone. We went over a bump and sure enough he hit his head on the roof.
  6. Apart from Nemesis, I would have to agree with Neil on this one. Oblivion is a VERY high contender for my top spot. Yes, it's very short and doesn't do much. However, the one thing it does do is pulled off incredibly well, having one of the most intense drops of any coaster I have been on. I honestly think that the drop on Oblivion far surpasses that of Griffon, having been the only other Dive Machine I have experienced.
  7. Well, that was over in less than a jiffy! bottom_feeder_13, you're up.
  8. I want to say Flying Fish at Thorpe Park but I don't think so... Edit: After a little research, I have retracted my previous guess and now say Tokaido at Luna Park.
  9. I really don't know what to say to this. Taken from Towers Times.
  10. About Drop Tower or whatever it's called now. I didn't find it all that intense. Height does not mean intensity! Sure, it's one of the taller ones I've ridden but the drop was anything but intense. You kind of glided down in a calm, serene manner. I can think of many drop towers that are more intense. Detonator at Thorpe Park is the most intense I've ridden and it's so intense that I refuse to ride it. It may only be 115ft tall, but it packs one hell of a punch. Don't get me wrong, I loved Drop Tower, it just wasn't as edgy as I'd hoped.
  11. Considering the crowds that do tend to build up outside the current dungeons, it does sound like a nice move. It will certainly be far more convenient having three attractions in one place. Also, it may allow for the dungeons to spruce up some of the older scenes and events as the Great Fire of London really could use a little bit of a revamp.
