Adventure Island may be shown in clips tonight on BBC Three in this programme:The World's Strictest Parents
Ross, one of the teenagers featured in the documentary, went to my old school and I know he works at Adventure Island as a Ride Host.
When I was at Adventure Island a while ago, I saw him being filmed on some of the rides. I asked him what it was for and he said its a film crew from BBC Three, getting some footage of him as he is going to be on this new programme.
So if the programme does have a bit about him, Adventure Island could well be shown.
EDIT: I found an echo story about it: http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/local_news...ictest_parents/
Hopefully Adventure Island will be seen in a few shots

Today Channel 4 were filming 'Embarrassing Bodies' - not sure what that has to do with theme parks... They had some kids going on some of the rides holding signs saying 'nits', 'tooth decay' and 'rashes'. Delightful.
Due to be screened in March.

The park was shown loads on 'A Place By The Sea' today, which can be found for the next 30 days at:http://www.channel4.com/video/brandless-ca...lace-by-the-sea
It was filmed a long time ago, pre Rage. It's mid 2006. I vaguely remember seeing them filming some bits.
In part 1, at 5;30, there's an overview shot of the park which has clearly been reversed, the Go Karts are going backwards!
The main in-park footage is in part 2 at 23:20, some great shots of Hook A Duck, Goblets, Ramba and various other west side shots. Hardly any east side at all.

Blue Peter are on park today filming a feature on Rage, I'm not sure of the exact air dates but I expect it'll be the week of 23-27 March. The feature will include Colossus and Kumali too.
mitchp - March 12, 2009 02:58 PM (GMT)
Im glad I saw that a place by the sea on here as I know the EXACT date of it because I was this close to being in it! it was the 1st may 2006. They were hanging around in dragon claw section

Hurri - March 23, 2009 11:01 PM (GMT)
Blue Peter have put a teaser on their site with POVs from Rage, Kumali and Colossus:http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/bluepeter/centra...xclusives.shtml
Just a quick reminder that it's going out tomorrow (24th) and Wednesday (25th) at 4:35pm on BBC One.
Hurri - March 25, 2009 05:33 PM (GMT)
So, anyone see it?
Rage is officially better than Kumali and Colossus - if Blue Peter said it, it's GOT to be true!
andy76 - March 25, 2009 05:41 PM (GMT)
I didn't expect it to beat colossus
sam! - March 25, 2009 06:07 PM (GMT)
Out of the coaster they did do on Blue Peter for me it goes Colossus then Rage then Kumali.
rock - March 28, 2009 10:18 PM (GMT)
collousas is the most intense but rage is the most thrilling and exciting!!
and yes i saw it
sam! - March 29, 2009 12:34 PM (GMT)
Not for me I think Colossus is more thrilling but Rage is more exciting.
Leemo - March 29, 2009 07:45 PM (GMT)
rage is something to me but there is better ive experianced i think collosus would be my higest cause i like more of a thrill.but kumali looks rubbish.

It was in todays southend echo plus where is flamingo land?
Hysterix - April 2, 2009 02:22 AM (GMT)
Leemo, I have been riding coasters (including some of the ones in Florida) since literally before you were born, and I have to say you sound a bit of a twit with that statement! No coaster is designed to hurt or maim you, and therefore calling a coaster more extreme just because it happens to be in Florida is a bit - well, lame! Of COURSE Rage is something to you!! It's the £1.2m coaster in your LOCAL park!! It's a damn sight closer and more affordable than any of its US cousins!! It's such a good coaster that the very same model was just opened somewhere else in the country... maybe you heard of it? It's called "Saw" - or is that nothing to you either?
Also, try Googling Flamingoland. I did... see if you can guess what the very first link was? Go on... guess. I dare you!
Hurri - April 2, 2009 07:41 AM (GMT)
If I may be a pedant, Saw isn't the same model, it's the same make. Rage is an EF320+, saw is a custom EF.
And Rage was £3m if we're to believe AI's marketing...
andy76 - April 2, 2009 02:12 PM (GMT)
i wouldnt say rage is nothing but most of the roller coasters in florida are better than it.
most roller coasters in florida cost a lot more though.
Leemo - April 2, 2009 08:47 PM (GMT)
what i mean is yeah it is something to me but in the world there are better ones and i love rage it my favorite ride out of the park. but you have to admit that kraken is great. and i googled flamingo land and looked it up last night after i left the post. saw looks amazing like rage is and im hoping to go very soon. saw the ride, thorpe park opened for season pass people on friday 13th of march 2009, flamingo land located north yorkshire its a zoo with rides . :D

Southend United manager Steve Tilson and captain Adam Barrett were filmed today going round on Rage, and interviewed by various sports journalists on/near the ride.
The 'big three' were at the park, ITV and BBC are expected to show theirs tomorrow with Sky showing theirs on Saturday.
andy76 - March 6, 2010 02:29 PM (GMT)
I saw it on sky, it was only for about ten seconds.
mitchp - April 15, 2010 10:35 PM (GMT)
