Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

I'd say it won because it is actually quite an impressive attraction underneath it all. Its a very technical attraction and I would say it actually deserves to recognized for it. I won't deny its had issues, but it is getting a lot better. Given that a lot of the technology has either never been use...

Re: End of Season Review 2017

I only visited Alton Towers twice this year. Once for TowersTimes TTSP@15 event and once for TowersTimes Scaremazing event and I must say it does look like AT is coming back. I think its had a rough couple of years and its finally turning itself around. The park seems tidier and seems a lot more ele...

Re: A Picture A Day

So, shall we revisit this topic to make closed season less depressing. I think this time we should have a weekly theme. So shall we start with Inversions!

Re: Future of the Monorail

I'm going to be different and say I quite like the monorail just the way it is. Given I don't visit the park often, I still get really excited to go on the monorail and get to the park by it. Its a lovely way to start the day being able to sort of see the rides. I think they need to update the train...
