It's not just Ireland and England; the same thing happens here in America. People knowingly live next to a park and then whine at any opportunity.

The shocking thing about this is that the park already has a big wooden coaster. That cannot be quiet. For these steel coasters, they could do things like filling the track with sand.

^ Actually, you have to consider, the villages around some of these European places were there first, in truth.

But America is different and it is the other way around. Cities are built closer and closer to already existing parks, and then they complain about crowd noise and/or ride noise, that's "suddenly invading their privacy" blah blah blah.

My five cents. :)

^ That's a fair point. I'm still shocked they allowed a wooden coaster, which is probably far louder, unless it's located deep in the park or something.

^ That's how I felt they dealt with Wicker Man over at Alton Towers.
Put it more into the middle of the park, than by an edge of it, i.e. near the neighbours.

Many times screaming riders are louder than the actual coaster. And you can't fill their mouths with sand.
