Re: Rct4 - Coming Soon?

This is good news, as I thought the idea was off completely. What I'd like to see is a more realistic game, none of this cartoony crap! I'd like a real menu when choosing rides, sorted out by manufacturer, and then each individual design. I would also like hotels to be an option, and seasons so you ...

Re: Early Days

I miss lots of things really... But like Furie said, its like christmas now, no longer exciting! I love to go, and I get my excitement out of A. How long I go for, or B. Who I'm with. I always find I have a much more exciting time if I'm staying at the resort with my closest friends! (TTF Meets) I'm...

Interesting publicity stunt though... Think they'll do this every Friday 13th?

Re: $82 for one day at WDW

Eep! I paid about £75 for entry to EP last oct, and that was for a 3 day ticket! (Which may I add is money VERY well spent!) The thing is though, Disney parks can and will charge this. If you mention the word "Theme Park" to someone they will instantly think "DISNEY!" Disney are ...

Re: B&M Prototype Confirmed for Gardaland in 2011!

I've heard this could be a 4D! :| I've read somewhere that some of the seats will turn on future versions of this coaster type (could be rumour though, I hope to god it is!) I think 4D's just look gimmicky, and uncomfortable. Also, the problem with wing riding coasters is that any small jolt is inte...

Re: The Mysterious Stuff of Alton Towers

Just after the bridge in the River Rapids queue, there's a hut on a pathway that is behind a fence.

It's on that!

Re: The Mysterious Stuff of Alton Towers

Another strange place I always think about is the valley behind the hotels! I've always wanted to go down there, but its always been late in the day or early in the morning when I just wanna get on park!

Anyone got any photos or anything from down there?

Re: Six Dead in Theme Park Accident!

I have to say, the pictures from inside the ride queue line looks quality! It all seems a bit higgledy piggledy at the moment, I've heard all sorts. And that video I wouldn't say is so sick, its just the unnecessary crying at the end. No different to someone doing a video like that for the two tower...
