Re: Scarefest

Great images TheSmilerMan.
It looks like Alton Towers are taking a leaf out of Thorpe Park's books and going for a long slim walkway similar to that of P15, just less dark.

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Vortex is currently closed at Thorpe Park. It is likely it is because of the horrific incident at the Ohio State Fair, but no official statement has been made by the park.

Front row works as follows

Stealth, Nemesis Inferno and Colossus have a seperate queue near the station for it.
Saw and Swarm are own batching, so you decide where you go.

Re: Scarefest

I didn't do Scarefest last year, but the year before was my first time doing TOTT and I thought it was really good. I had heard so many negative things about the maze, but every time i did it (I did it twice, once with TT Scaremazing in extreme mode and once in normal mode) I thought it was really g...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

If its the beginning of September than its more busy than towards the end of September due to some school trips (Believe it or not). So if you go the weekend before FN starts than it should be reasonable with at most...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Fright Nights now begins 29th September, so expect all weekends from then to be busy. If its after that date than expect the park to be very busy as Fright Nights is usually THE busiest time of year for the park. If you are visiting during a FN weekend than i highly recommend fastrack for the mazes....

Rise of the Demon has already been confirmed to be for Derren Brown's Ghost Train and has already opened and has nothing to do with SW8 :)

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Haha! Wondering when someone would post it! Found that weeks ago, it's cleverly hidden, away from all the viewing windows so not somewhere people are inclined to look. I haven't scanned it yet, probably going to next time I'm there with Towers recently stating they're 'anticipating to have Galactic...
