Contactless Tokens

Tir Prince and Knightly's in Towyn, North Wales are now using a contactless card for their pay-per-ride tokens rather than individual plastic tokens: https://www.facebook.com/tirprincefunfair/posts/763786273812066 Wonder how many more (if any) per-per-ride parks follow suit.

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - Invades Thorpe Park

^Somehow I doubt it'll have new trains. Perhaps may get a new covering for them though.


Think "Invading" is the correct term here, an invasion of something is rarely preferable. I'd have much rathered they left X as it was with sticking a dying IP on it.

Re: Olympia Looping Coaster (Travelling Coaster)

The official Olympia Looping website is usually pretty good at publicising where it's going:

Fab, surprisingly intense. Easily the best travelling ride I've been on and one of the best travelling coasters worldwide. I'd even call it better than a lot of fixed coasters!

Will be riding it again this Monday!
