Were the restraints different? I'm not sure I knew that?

They were less bulky than they are now and much better in my view :)

Re: Colossus - General Discussion

It certainly hasn't aged very well and is a far cry from when it first opened - it was lovely and smooth then :) I also think the trains could do with sorting out as I always like to sit in the front of each carriage as there's more legroom, additionally, some less cumbersome restraints would be goo...

Re: Colossus - General Discussion

I agree, Thorpe definitely needs some "Thorpe Loving Care" and Colossus is one of the major rides to start with.  It is a shame to see it looking a bit neglected like it did last year but hopefully something will be done.

Re: Fright Nights

I'd also like Brave it alone to return as I think having it as an option improved FN for me as well as being a brilliant experience. The last few years FN hasn't lived up to expectations as has been pointed out so I hope Thorpe will put on a better event this year - including more theming throughout...

Yeah it doesn't look nicely done in my opinion - hopefully they'll make it easier to get from the coach park to the entrance :)

Re: The Alton Towers Park Map

I love how on the map fronm 1986 it even makes a reference to little things like the leapfrog fountains and some dinosaurs :) I didn't like the 2005/06 maps either and not a patch on the newer ones like last years which I think are a nicer thing to look at, especially if like me you try and keep the...

That would be quite hilarious to be honest! :D

Seriously though, it would be good to get Loggers Leap re-opened as it's one of my favourite log flumes :)

I echo everyone's comments - such awesome artwork and shame it didn't end up the same :)

Re: Towers Loving Care

Good to see all the TLC over the closed season, especially the Nemesis monster and the conservatory as I'm a fan of the historical parts of AT and I like to see they are being considered too :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I love everything about this new coaster and can't wait to go on it.  However the name hasn't grown on me yet (I didn't like The Smiler to start with but that grew on me and I like it now as well as the ride itself!) and I'm not sure it's a strong enough name but still, a woodie at AT is really exci...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

It is such a shame that a classic coaster has been removed and like others, I will miss it as it was one of the maddest coasters I've been on. However, I look forward to seeing what happens to that space.

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

I agree with you Lakey, I've only had the pasta once but generally only have the pizza and salad for that reason.  But I do think as a food outlet that is called Pizza & Pasta there should be an equal ratio of the two which would improve choices for people.  I also welcome the extension but hope...

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Personally I like the videos and the way they're including the past Secret Weapons to advertise SW8 - it's certainly building the excitement too and I'm looking forward to the reveal.
