Could someone let Shawn Sanbrooke know there's some #rockwork, I'm sure he'll be as excited as I am.  MMMMmmmmmm....

Re: Ride pin badges

They're a cool idea, although I've had issues with the pin separating from the front with some of the Merlin ones. For the price these are getting to, it wouldn't hurt for them to be a bit more durable!

Re: Fright Nights

Thorpe definitely seem to benefit from IP with their target audience. Whereas Alton seem to do okay without them, with ToTT being a name recognised by the general public, as a signature attraction. I really like Alton and Tulleys find new ideas outside of well-trodden themes. For example Sub Species...

Re: Fright Nights

As someone who's not yet got around to watching The Walking Dead, do you think the mazes will offer much in the way of story, beyond general zombieness?

Re: Howl-o-ween

I'll be interested to see how well this sells, considering that the park has never done paid halloween attractions before. Creepy Caves doesn't have a lot of space, so I wonder what could feasibly be achieved, that a family would find reasonable value. Alton definitely went to some considerable eff...

Re: CBeebies Land Hotel - 2017

Should we talk about the price of this place? Because its quite expensive. I did some research and based on a 1 night stay with 2 adults and 2 children sharing, it comes to a whopping £450! You could get a lodge for nearly £150 less! All I can say is I feel incredibly sorry for all parents that tak...
