    European theme parks to visit

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach has a good collection of coasters, some that are historic and some quite good recent additions. The Big One is a bit of a snore fest after the first drop, but Big Dipper and The Grand National are both excellent historic woodies. Although I haven't ridden it, Icon by all accounts is an extremely good coaster and worth the trip alone. The park also has some other great attractions such as Valhalla ( one of the best dark ride /water rides in the world) and also historic attractions such Sir Hiram Maxim's Flying machines, The Ghost Train, and the River Caves . Unfortunately, when I went ( admittedly a few years ago now) they also had great historic attractions such as The Whip, The Tumblebug, Noahs Ark ( still there just a static attraction) and the much lamented Wild Mouse ( with its unique layout - quite different from LPS) Well worth a visit and I would definitely put it on the list if you are visiting the UK.

    European theme parks to visit

    PortAventura (with Ferrari Land) is beyond incredible! Shambhala is ridiculous, and Red Force is a lot of fun! Make sure you get the express pass, just makes it easier, and with the park being open until midnight in Summer, its even better! Also visit Phantasialand and Efteling (Symbolica is actually the best dark ride ive ever experienced), both stunning parks, beautifully themed with some really great attractions!
  4. So I was just hoping to get some advice from all you guys here. I'll be spending six months in Europe on an exchange next year (over the northern spring and summer) and was hoping to visit as many parks as I reasonably can. I'll probably only be limited to a few by cost, but I'm happy to travel pretty much anywhere in Europe. I've done Disneyland Paris and Alton Towers before so I'm looking for others, unless there's anything that's a must ride added since 2014. Europa park and Portaventura are both on the top of my list, but I'm not sure where else I should look. Places that are either in a really interesting location, or will make a good full day visit (especially with roller coasters) are where I'd prefer to go. If anyone has any recommendations I'd love to hear them.

    This is actually why we can’t have nice things.

    I'm with you on that, but I couldn't help but notice when I saw so many of those icons on most of my recent posts, so I decided some pointless revenge was in order! Yep. Totally childish nonsense which I wouldn't otherwise think twice about.

    Well I was going to post who really gives a flying fuck on who gives what rep and for who but clearly I do since I have just commented on it....... I will see myself out. Thanks. Carry on.

    But didn’t you just vomit on Push’s comments on the SV advertisement being excellent and then in your next post praise the same advertisement? But you’re right, it is someone else who vomits on all of Push’s comments.

    Rides that need a refurbishment / refresh

    I'd love to see Movie World really invest in Wild West Falls. I know they probably won't because it's not new and all that, but unless they're planning to close it soon I think it's really worth a bit of investment. It soaks up the crowds (quite literally) and a really good experience with something new there would have a lot of guests leaving with significantly better thoughts. At the very least, fix all the effects so they work reliably and they're timed properly. Ideally add a few new surprises. Maybe animatronic. Maybe even projection mapping (and not like on SDSCNG). Potentially, with some great imagineering, they could retheme it to a well known movie with appropriate scenes, and it would be virtually a new ride.

    Should be the main focus of the safety video. Much better!

    Well there you have it. Reasonable communication! I was actually about to give you a "like" but apparently I've run out of "reps" for today! I did think most of the "nauseating" icons were you as you do insult me at every opportunity, and you have for years, but seeing your last post, I'll stop throwing up all over your posts!

    Don't feel so privileged @Jdude95 @AlexB. @pushbutton has been showing me the love too. I think he has a secret crush on me.

    I think Push has got it in for me. Clearly, since he isn't a Parkz Crew member, he's guessing who is giving him neg reacts, which is what is leading him to 'load' neg reacts on certain people, such as myself, and J-dude. Now, whilst I certainly neg him when he posts boxing day, or shaded seating jokes time and time again (which he seems to have stopped, thanks Push), I don't just randomly neg him for the fun of it. So yes, petty though it may be, i've responded But, as you can see Push - my 3 avatars at the top of your rep page are the only ones there across two full pages... And you're doling out a lot more rep (most of it negative) than anyone else is giving you. Since you enjoy this space so much, why not contribute to the site with a small donation, and pick up a crew membership for yourself so that you can see who is giving you the rep (positive or negative) and respond in whatever petty and childish way you choose. I wasn't going out of my way to do anything untoward towards you - but your actions have certainly prompted me to do so. If you want to act like a child - i'll respond in kind. let the games begin.

    I wonder if there’ll be clowns hanging around near intencity like last year?

    Great news! Just in time for the Holidays and as the weather is heating up. This will also help with Operations by having People stacked and ready to be counted in to the pre- boarding rooms. Now if they can just add a small bit of footage somewhere that demonstrates the boarding process.

    My mistake, I thought there wasn't any direct access to the dodgems space and you had to enter via the arcade.

    @Flynn_Smith where that head is located leads directly to the dodgems area, so the maze will have no impact on the arcade area

    This is exactly what has started happening from yesterday, the queue line is now inside and the preshow is playing on a loop. The switchbacks outside are now for overflow.

    Honestly, there's enough comments on the Dreamworld threads of people tagging friends and saying things like "this is like the one at disney" that people who didn't know, would just google and figure it out pretty quick. I don't think the concept is that hard. It just needs someone who knows the product to shoot something decent. This latest video has done that perfectly - even without the testimonials.

    I know it's not a big thing in the scheme of things, but i'd really like to have seen them run a wrap over the top of the intencity badging - just a couple pushups and drape would be fine, just so the head stands alone, instead of blending into the intencity branding behind it...

    Looking almost identical to the 'IT Chapter 2' experience in America. Could they still be adding the rest of the features? Also, does this mean the maze itself will start in the arcade area, and move into the dodgems space?
