Welcome! There are a few Brits on the board, but not many. What the UK lacks in quantity is made up by the quality of the rides!

Well, gents, you need to TELL us more about them... Although I have a UK Coaster trip planned in a few months, I only know from what I've read or seen on TV. Could you do us an enormous transatlantic favor and post some of YOUR firsthand UK Coaster experiences???

I myself am heading across the big pond for a family wedding in Southampton (the city of Titanic) in Aug. I have already planned out a 2 day trip up to Alton, and then I'd like to find Oakwood (?) the home of Megaphobia.

Oakwood is in Whales I think. I have been to the UK two times and never been able to get to any of the parks. Also been to Italy and had plans to go ride the new Katun inverted coaster but it never worked out. I guess I missed some golden opportunities.

I live in UK, and the problem with it is that yes we do have some good coasters, but many are quite along distance away from each other. Meaning as i live in London i only have really 2 parks to choose from and neither of them are that good. I have been all around the UK to different theme parks and i'd say the best place for rides is the Midlands, where you'll find Alton Towers - Nemesis, Oblivion Blackpool Pleasure Beach - The Big One, Grand National and Drayton Manor - Shockwave, Storm Force Ten .
