Those are some cool trains on Vampire.

Hopefully we will get a park in the US to do that to one of their less-impressive Arrow suspended coasters.

XLR-8, Ninja, and Iron Dragon would all make great candidates.

This looks like a beautiful park, similar to Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

Those make overs would look like it would make great foot chopper effects on these types of rides

Oh man, I really can't wait for my trip now. This park isn't part of the tour, but a few of us are planning on hitting it the day before the tour officially begins.

It's a great park with actually a layout i like but it is lacking the thing which all English THEMED parks are missing- a world class rollercoaster with a decent height to it! They've got a restriction saying that they can't build above tree which is very annoying! But it is definitly worth a trip ( not specially though, only if your in the area) and i'm not just saying that because i've got a season ticket!

Can you imagine how wonderful those trains would be on Big Bad Wolf at BGW. That would really be awesome. Chessington looks great too. I shall have to try and make a trip there when i go to London over Spring Break

I think it would be cool on other tracks too but what about feet hitting trees and stuff. I think on Top Gun at PKI, the bottom of the cars hits a bush after the second drop. It might not be like that on other rides but it could be a problem.

Its obvious that the enclosed suspended car is rather outdated by now, maybe a lot of the parks with these kind and money to spend should look into those kinds of cars - or maybe an even more radical design that could add even more vulnerable feeling to these rather tame coasters. If not, I still liked Big Bad Wolf and Iron Dragon remains one of my favorite coasters.

The new floorless trains are excellent but have caused a few problems.

- The height restriction has been lowered to 1.1m - so the seats are smaller, causing increased problems for larger people.

- They weigh less than the old ones and need to be pushed on the brake runs, as the slopes arent steep enough for the train to roll. This only happens when theres nobody on it.

Chessington is a nice park but needs some TLC to some of the areas. It is the Tussauds park which has had the least investment over the last five years, a shame really.
