All I can say is WOW, how cool was that?!

We went on almost everything, it was really sunny but quite quiet as the kids are all still at school. I've never experienced anything quite like Nemesis or Oblivion, and Rita: Queen of Speed was just mental! 0 - 100Kmph in 2.5 seconds.

Anyone else been there recently? Wow. I'd love to hear what anyone else has to say about such an awesome place. :)
 
Been on the first two rides, bought the zippo from the second as I was so impressed with myself (was a good idea at the time)
 
Never been. Never been to your parts either.

Anyone read about a worker being struck and killed by a roller coaster at Lego Land in Denmark?
 
Oooh I remember Lightwalter Valley and Flamingo land!
 
Not been to Alton Towers, I always tended to go to Draton Manor instead.
 
Sounds like an amusement/theme park?

I stay away from those rides :p
 
Yeah I used to go to Drayton Manor when I was younger, I loved that place. Alton Towers knocked it for six really though, especially with these new rollerocoaster.

I still can't get over Rita: Queen of Speed - I just wasn't expecting anything so fast!

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
