Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

It would be nice if they had a reference to Doom and Sons included. That would be cool, but I think people are hoping it's going to be something which The Dungeons aren't. They only have one or two scenes that particular to the local area. The rest are generic scenes that can be found in the majori...

Re: Rate the Rollercoasters (2018 Edition)

I feel I need to explain my placing of the Smiler. There are various reasons why its so low for me, all of which are personal to me. I don't like this ride during the day. Its ride is terrible and I feel it gets rougher as the day goes on, so riding in the dark always feels like more of an endurance...

Once Upon A Sewer - Part 2 Dan shone the torch around the room. Justin had just vanished. He decided to see if he had left the room so walked over to the door. Suddenly he was whacked over the head and knocked unconscious. Hours later Dan awoke. He was groggy and had a headache. He tried to move bu...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019?

I think its safe to assume the Charlie building given its the only place on park that seems to be having any work done in any sense. I do think we will enter the building slightly differently to how we entered Charlie. I think it will start with what was the glass elevator room. The London Dungeons ...

My review of Fright Nights can be found there. It does contain swearing so be warned. I've tried to be fair, but honest.

The Motel Murders - Part 2 DeadJack sat on a chair as the paramedics arrived. He was in shock. Who would kill Liam. "Alice, who would want to kill him?" DeadJack asked. She shrugged. Hours passed and eventually Liam's body had been removed from the set.  The director gathered everyone aro...

The speculator in me is thinking Rumba Rapids related straight away given the background image of the page I did have a similar thought, although the Rumba Rapids page now has a line saying it "will return in 2019". It could be its being rethemed/rebranded with the addition of more themin...

The Motel Murders  - Part 1 Deadjack awoke with a start. He was tied to a bed. His vision was still blurry. His vision was slowly coming back and he looked around the room an at his restraints. It was a very basic room. The curtains are closed and the lights were on the dimmest setting. Of to the s...

Re: Fright Nights

Am I the only one slightly worried about the sheer amount Thorpe are trying to do this year? I mean, if they pull it off than its going to be spectacular, but If they struggle with actors or sets, than it could be disappointing. Fright Nights has always been one of the better theme park Halloween ev...

Re: Fright Nights

They had a passholder event last year, I believe on the Monday after the first weekend. There was an email back in March with passholder dates, with a Saturday listed as an event. So it's possible that there won't be a dedicated day this year. Ah see now you mention that I can remember it because i...

Re: Fright Nights

Really looking forward to this now but is anyone else thinking that Thorpe are leaving it awfully late to release the tickets for the Annual pass preview event? or even just to confirm the date? They may not have a annual pass event this year. I don't think they had one last year. Just the media ev...
