They're going to buid a Freeport shopping monstrosity there so you can have a trip to the seaside and spend all your time indoors. It's been a long time in the making though as they knocked Frontierland down about 7 years ago !.Tim Bennet. said:Up to about 8 years ago, there was a classic wooden roller coaster in Morecambe. Mid week, in the summer, you used to be able to get a really cheap evening pass and just go round and round and round for hours on it.
Then I went back one summer and it had all gone. Demolished for redevelopment. But all these years later there's so sign of any new buildings. Why did they have to knock my big dipper down so soon? Snot fair!

Space Mountain in Disney land paris was good, but i dont think its as good.
Rocking Rollercoaster in America was one i enjoyed.
There was an Indiana Jones ride, that got up to a good speed and did a loop. I was young and was being pushed down into the seat and thought i was going to pop out.
What happened to that ride in American Adventure then wasnt a full loop, and you went up a ramp, then went round farword then did it all again in reverse?
I think the trouble is, that's not such a dead cert for a result...Patrick Stevens said:Bearing in mind the length of the queues at Alton Towers, isn't it quicker to use a bloke?
Nemesis is great - I went mid week once and there were no queues. I was able to do it over and over again. Buggi would have enjoyed it.Arch said:I think the trouble is, that's not such a dead cert for a result...
Been a long time since I was on a rollercoaster, but I always liked The Big One at Blackpool, and Nemesis at Alton Towers.
