Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

Hello Im going to Blackpool Pleasure Beach on Monday 4th June and I notice that the park is only open for six hours. Is this enough time to get around the park? I'm aware that Icon will have just opened two weeks before.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

As the end of the ride is meant to suggest escape and defeat of the Wicker Man, I think there should be water vapour in the shed and it should fill with a blue water projection to suggest that the fire has been extinguished.

Phantasialand vs Heide park

I've searched online for this but it only return's German comparisons. I have been to Europa and very much enjoyed it but now I'm looking to spend my birthday weekend in June at one of these parks. Both Parks look great but I can't decide which is better or more worth the visit. I've decided against...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I am eagerly waiting for tps new ride like everyone else but having the anticipation of my new htc vive has been a nice distraction. Having played around with the vive and tried the obligatory jump scares I am expecting that with the inclusion of the vive on the ride with all the extra immersion of ...

Best Toys for a Theme Park enthusiast

Im going to kick start this thread with a kinetic motion sculpture as featured on iron man. I have been wanting one of these for a while. The motion really reminds me of the swinging nature of a flat ride. Hopefully we can add more to the list. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhFHAEQ5x4c" onclick="w...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Can I just say to all that by submitting links to stories it increases the click rate of that story and therefore makes it artificially popular. Articles like these should be boycotted to reduce exposure and therefore profitability. If we find a story im sure we can quote from the story without prov...

Re: SW8

I forsee that SW8 will now be completely rethought. Its taken this long to justify a woody due to the supposed unsafe public perception. AT will now want to reinforce to families that AT is perfectly safe so I expect SW8 to be a tame family ride with a focus on experience rather than thrills.

Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

Im glad that Thorpe is getting a decent investment for 2016. I can imagine something like Arthur at Europa fits the description pretty well.

Re: Finally going to Alton Towers!

OK so I have managed to get a room at the Alton Towers Hotel for the Wed night so we plan to spend the day driving up on Wednesday 17th Sep and then in park on Thursday. I have never stayed in the hotel before. I am now interested to know if there is any entertainment in the evenings and also if the...

Great, Tulleys it is then.

Now I just need to decide if a 3 hr zombie shopping mall haunt is worth the £80

Seasonal scare mazes?

I took my younger brother to Thorpe Park scare maze and we really enjoyed asylum two years ago. I notice on the scaretour website that there are actually LOADS of popup seasonal scare mazes throughout the UK in October and I wondered which ones were worth visiting and if the independent ones were as...

Re: Finally going to Alton Towers!

That's an amazing reply, thanks for taking the time to do that. Sounds like AT can still be done in a day then. Is Charlie worth doing? was not there when I last went. Also are the gardens in any better condition these days? back in 05 they were left to ruin.

Finally going to Alton Towers!

Well finally I am going back to Alton Towers after a long, long break. I have been trying to go to Alton for many years but every year I have priced up the cost of travelling up from the south coast and staying for a night and I find that the cost makes it better value to go to Europa, Port Aventura...

Re: Ticket Prices To Rise for 2014

I have priced up a trip to Alton Towers every year for the past 10 years and every time I decide that its not worth the money. Consequently I have not visited since before Charlie and the chocolate factory. I think the last time I visited was when the car parking charge had been introduced. Living o...

Re: General Thorpe Park Discussion

I don't mean to sound like a troll but I'm glad I'm going to California this summer to get my rollercoaster fix because every year I give Thorpe a second chance I come away disappointed. There are so many other parks in the world worth going to which are so much better than Thorpe. I won't be return...
