Re: I'm a Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here

As reported by SouthParks Facebook ; Despite previously being stated as returning for 2019, Thorpe Park have removed the I'M A CELEBRITY... GET ME OUT OF HERE! Maze from the ride listing on their website. Could this suggest that the attraction has departed the Resort? https://i.imgur.com/xxuAhJy.png

Re: Early Ride Time 2019 Predictions

I would like to see something along the lines of:

- Wicker Man
- RMT
- Nemesis
- Blade
- CBeebies Land

With that offering there would be something for every demographic of guests that Towers get, while also keeping guests predominantly on one side of the park.

Re: Rita - General Discussion

I find the blue train smoother than the purple train. There certainly is a noticeable difference between the two trains! That being said, my colour blindness doesn’t help me differentiate between the two :lol Out of all the coasters at the park, Rita is one that I will happily miss out on. After th...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Nemesis is still one of the strongest attractions at the resort and is ageing beautifully, especially when you consider she is 25 years old this year. It’s not my top coaster at Towers, but there aren’t many experiences that can top a back row, outside right seat ride in the dark, it really is somet...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The wording of the post put out by Towers certainly implies that they may be looking to get Wicker Man open in some capacity over winter. If this were to happen, I’d definitely look in making a trip to get some winter Wicker riding :D Obviously the biggest variable in this happening is the weather, ...

Duel had TLC over the last closed season, which consisted mainly of someone wandering around with a UV paint gun :lol

Re: Project 42 (Nemesis Sub-Terra)

I’m not sure what will happen with Sub-Terra. Knowing Alton like we do, I think it’s entirely possible that they will “do a House of Monsters” and just keep Project 42 set up throughout next season, as this will save on the cost of re-building it for next years Scarefest. That being said, Alton are ...

A gentle reminder that, although it hasn’t been active in a few years, we do have a topic dedicated to People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas, so can all discussion on this subject be continued in the correct place please?

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Overall I am very impressed with Scarefest this year. Both Sub Species and Altonville Mine Tours are, on the whole, stronger than they were last year. I particularly like the change to the ending of Mine Tours, which makes it much more disorientating than in previous years. I was also very impressed...

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

I personally don’t have an issue with team orders. At the end of the day, it’s a team sport, and the drivers are employed by the team. I don’t like Hamilton but from Mercedes perspective with regards to the championship, switching the drivers round in Sochi made sense. Lewis essentially now has 2 ra...
