RollerCoaster Tycoon is one of the few games ever released that seems to appeal to gamers of every type, and the Loopy Landscapes expansion pack will appeal to all RCT fans. The only slight letdown is that there aren't a lot of new rides to play with--as the name suggests the main focus of this expansion is new terrain and themes.One of the best aspects of Loopy Landscapes is that it lets you personalise your park in ways that were not possible in the original game. Open a hat stall, T-shirt stand, or nearly any other shop and you can choose what colour the items will be. It's a hoot to watch a herd of hapless fun-seekers walk through your park wearing a rainbow of caps and holding an equally colourful assortment of balloons. New scenarios in the package sees an English theme with Alton Towers and Blackpoolpleasurebeach now featured for you to get those grubby little hands on. That isn't all of course, and other themes are included, such as the icy Winter Wonderland and majestic Medieval Castles ranging in difficulty from sedate fun to frenzied puzzle solving.One of best new scenarios gives you an empty park and unlimited funds, but you only have a certain amount of time to attract 2000 guests, and if the park rating dips below 700 you lose the game. This effectively turned time and space into the most valuable resources in the game, requiring us to rethink some old strategies. Newcomers should note that a copy of RollerCoaster Tycoon is required to play Loopy Landscapes; while RCT junkies will want to get their hands on all the new goodies Loopy Landscapes offers as soon as possible. --T.

Advantages: Soething for everyone Disadvantages: Quite expensive
...us places in and around Blackpool, even as an adult I have been on holiday to Blackpool once staying in the same flat as when I was a child and the second time a flat just around the corner (but owned by the same people) One trip we would often take, again both as a child and an adult was to the Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the towns amusement park, as a child we would just go for a few hours and I would...
Advantages: Great rides, cheaper than some other parks Disadvantages: Lacks the charm other parks have
...I visited Blackpool Pleasure Beach last year and I thought it was great value for money. The weather in Blackpool wasnt always great during my 4 day stay but this park didnt disappoint where ride were concerned or eating out. The general atmosphere of this park is happy and fun which is great for the family however the atmosphere here is nothing compared to theme parks like Disneyland...
Advantages: Fantastic rides, fairly cheap, clean and tidy, a brilliant day out Disadvantages: Some of the rides a bit uncomfortable, have to pay extra for some things
I felt I would write a review on Blackpool Pleasure Beach as I have now been twice and feel I should let others know how great this place is. Being a big fan of themeparks, I was honestly hesitant to visit Blackpool Pleasure Beach as I imagined it being a few fairground rides and I genuinely didn't think it'd compare to other places I'd been to. However, it is now my favourite...
