Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Sorry Dan but the lift hill has already been confirmed to be utilising LSM technology. The question mark at the moment is just how much of a "launch" the lift will bring.

Re: SP Summer Sizzler 2017 - Reviews & Feedback

What a great day! From starting the day in the Thrills Workshop for the talk with Andy to a fantastic ERT session on Stealth and everything inbetween this was an all round brilliant event. As always Thorpe looked after us and really made sure that the day ran smoothly so my thanks go out to everyone...

Any mention for what the new world class attraction is?


Nothing has yet been decided regarding Thorpe Parks new attraction for 2020.

Obviously they do have a few ideas but nothing is concrete yet.

Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

At first glance it looks like a potential Hyper Coaster teaser but it could be pointing towards the widening of the bridge

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

It's certainly flying up!

I do like that it's easy to see the construction site as it's providing us with updates on an almost daily basis.

Looking forward to see how it's progressed when I next visit in August.

I believe Galactica has been having issues with the lift hill this season. The current period of downtime isn't related to the VR.

Re: Drayton Manor

I'd go as far as saying it's a half a day park. There is just extremely little to do or see. I think the number of families who spend the full day in Thomas Land may disagree with you. While the main park itself doesn't have the level of attractions that Alton has there is more than enough there to...

Re: Drayton Manor

I wonder which one of the developments above will be replacing the rapids?! What's to say that anything will be replacing the Rapids? At this stage it would be premature to predict what the outcome of the investigation into the incident on Splash Canyon will be. If the ride was at fault then yes I ...

Re: Galactica

When I went yesterday (31st) the ride closed around 3 and stayed closed. When I asked the staff they said they knew why the ride was closed but they were not allowed to tell any guests. I also saw it running at around 6 o clock when I was in the car park so maybe this means they are testing the vr ...

Are there any new hoodie designs this year? They seemed to be clearing out stock last autumn.


There's one new hoodie and a couple of new t-shirts but for the most part the merch is the same as last year

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

TT Facebook have posted an update on the progress of SW8.

The wooden frames for the roof of the station appear to be complete and work is progressing around the site at a rapid rate.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I'd like to see them running 4 trains on extremely busy days, such as the saturday of fireworks. Upon timely dispatches there can be roughly 10 seconds before any train arrives in the station. With 4 trains this wouldn't happen, and the throughput would increase slightly. Since the crash Alton have...

Re: The Smiler Corrected Theme

Does anyone know if the corrected theme will come back to The Smiler because after it was removed it has really had a bad effect on the ride! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk I highly doubt it. I personally don't feel that the removal of the "Correction" element of the theme has had that ...

Re: Dark Forest Gertslaur ?

Sorry, but I think this is a rather stupid thing to suggest may be added in the future. Smiler is a Gerstlauer Infinity Coaster, which is basically a more advance version of a Euro-Fighter. So its like having a big box of lindt chocolate, then considering buying a cheap knock off which doesn't tast...

Re: Groundbreaking

Hi guys I follow this page but never comment as I don't know half as much as you lot. If I remember correctly I think someone mentioned that the the wicker man theme could breath fire or water. Probably sounds crazy as the last thing towers needs is for the ride to go up in flames. Anyway it got me...
