    This year is going to be interesting for fireworks

    They have to stop importing them (CE product) next year but afaik the sales of them is still allowed going forward. I'd expect to start seeing UKCA product on sale this year for certain, particularly as stock shortages mean that there won't be as much residual stock in storage

    This year is going to be interesting for fireworks

    CE fireworks can continue to be sold beyond next year. It's just the importing of them that will be disallowed. But yes, this coming year will certainly be an interesting one for pyro

    Funke rockets! You'll be guarding those with your life lol

    Can CE-F1 Fountains have an 8m spectator safety distance?

    Very likely that they're just playing it safe. Maybe those ones particularly have some crackle or another bigger effect. Either that or it's another mistake from them lol

    New Year's Eve fireworks selection

    That's all good mate, just the cartridges inside, it should fire fine :)

    Asda fireworks 2021

    Getting those over to here isn't an easy task though, certainly not in the time available. Much quicker and cheaper to ship them to Poland or Czech Republic

    Theme Parks

    Definitely not. It'll be a new theme, would love to see steampunk there personally. As long as it's original though I don't mind what they go for

    Theme Parks

    I can't see a Mack being much cheaper though, Copperhead Strike at Carowinds cost more than Fury 325! Only possible difference is Mack fabricate the track in Germany whereas B&Ms is fabricated in Ohio. In any event, i wouldn't be surprised if the investment is over £20million

    PCR tests

    PCR supersedes a lateral flow. So if you get another PCR and it's negative, then that's what you go by. Either way i'd rearrange your jab for 10 days time though, it's very easy to do on the NHS website :)

    New Year's Eve fireworks selection

    Thunderbolt isn't a bad box, certainly not the dross that's in the 2 for 20 one lol. I was pretty happy with it for the price :) which is good when pyro becomes too hard to resist lol

    Countdown to Christmas 2021

    Merry Christmas everyone, I know it's a bit late but been a bit caught up lol. Hope everyone had a great day :)

    Theme Parks

    A Mack coaster is definitely what I'm thinking. They went to turkey to do sound testing, and that's where another Mack Hyper is. I'm a little disappointed by it, I don't want more inversions in a park that has so many, and it does definitely look short. However, a 230ft twisted first drop is...

    What did you find at the thrift store

    I love that old-style light string in the second picture. I've got a modern equivalent on our tree this year, they look a lot better than standard LEDs imo :)

    New Years 2021

    Tesco never have as far as I recall. Asda and The Range almost certainly will. Lidl have done in the past, but my source hasn't said anything about them doing so this year. Think overall it'll be a very small selection for new years this year

    New Year's Eve fireworks selection

    Nice one mate, the Spook box looks decent value in particular :)

    Theme Parks

    It'd be a fantastic fit. It could well have an interesting layout too, the space in Old Town would lean towards a more twisty layout than the usual out and back hyper. Very exciting times ahead I think

    Theme Parks

    Thorpe Park are launching a consultation for a new coaster in Old Town! Only taken nearly 10 years lol. Clearly everyone is hoping for a hyper, which looks ever more likely with Chessington getting a B&M as well. Consultation launches on 10th December, can't wait to see what they've got in store...

    Supermarket fireworks stash

    I'd be happy at around £25-30

    Sparklers leftover

    Not sure you'll need to get any sparklers next year mate, or for the next 10 years as it goes :ROFLMAO:
