Re: Colossus

It must be a fairly major issue if they’ve had to close off the pathway.

It makes you wonder if they’ve discovered some structural issues with the track and/or supports, which require vehicle access to resolve?

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Thorpe Park have updated their website with some more information on Zombie Hunt, which will run between 21st July-3rd September. A hoard of zombies has invaded the woodland on the outskirts of THORPE PARK Resort – and we need your help to hunt them down before we have an epidemic on our hands! Grab...

Alton Towers have extended ride close to 5pm today after having some issues with ride availability this morning.

Thankfully, RideTimes is showing that every attraction is currently available.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hi everyone, going on a school day trip next Monday all the way down from Scotland. As you can probably imagine, it's quite an extensive trip, we have to leave at 1am to get to the park on time lol. I wanted to know what the best order is to complete the main 7, along with Katanga Canyon, Hex and D...

Re: FIA Formula One World Championship - General Discussion

Aston Martin Red Bull Racing have announced that, from the 2019 season, they will be running Honda engines instead of Renault. I actually don’t think this is a bad move. McLaren don’t seem to be making the progress they had hoped with Renault, and the Honda power unit seems to be performing much be...

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Insidious: The Last Key - 6/10 I’ll be honest, I’m not a massive fan of the Insidious films. I’m a bit of a wuss when it comes to films like this, give me a SAW film anyday! However, having watched the previous three films, we thought we would watch the latest instalment. It started off strong with ...

Re: Scarefest

While I would love to see a new maze, I don’t think it will happen. I’m expecting an event very similar to last year, with potentially some minor alterations to the routes of the mazes. The biggest thing for me will be Alton ensuring the have the optimum number of actors on board. Last year, the lac...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I'm not certain either, but when you look it up online, this pops up https://www.towerstimes.co.uk/theme-park/transportation/woodland-walk/ . It seems to be closed at this moment in time, but if it was open and I was to guess, I think it's a separate entrance since it says you'd enter at Forbidden ...

Re: Project Zer0 - Specu1ation

Given there have been two seperate instances of Thorpe Park, or employees at the resort, confirming this as being fake, we have decided to lock this topic.

If anything credible comes out in the future that could be related to this, we may consider unlocking it, but for now....

4pm closes have now been rolled out into July as well. What is going on!? This is madness.


Only July 2nd-5th are 4pm closes.

10th-20th July are still only showing as “Open” but, as previously reported by TowersTimes, the park is open 10am-6pm between the dates of 21st July and 2nd September.
