Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I think The Smiler Game was removed after the incident, may not be true but I think it was removed around that time.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I imagine this is now the start of ride teasers and press to come for the ride. The audio I imagine is just part of the whole soundtrack, made up of other audio clips we have heard already a bit like Ghost Train at Thorpe Park's lengthy soundtrack made of individual audio clips. I do really like the...

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

I must admit it looks really well done. I wasn't too keen on the rumours of a Walking Dead retheme but this doesn't look too bad. Hopefully the inside and ride experience has been overhauled and bought a new lease of life to it

Alestorm - Piratefest 2018 - Manchester 18th February http://thedreadcrewofoddwood.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/piratefest-uk.jpg Only a quick review from last night. I'm not a massive fan of the genre; I do like heavier music such as metalcore b...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I do like the style of the trains, it's very nice and well themed. I'm not so keen on the sculpture on the front though. It does look at bit weird but it may look better in person. Really excited to see this project nearing it's end :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Those images look fantastic. A real look at how this ride will look in the late nights. Very impressive stuff indeed. I could see the smoke still being used for the ride (not as much maybe as shown in these pictures) but if they were to create fake fire this could be used for that with the right lig...

Re: Towers Loving Care

It's great to see not only rides but the gardens and heritage receiving the care and attention it's getting. It's probably something you never really think of but like with the Pagoda at the end of last season, it does look special when it's complete

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I must admit when I saw this item I thought it was a joke. It's not worth £80 in the slightest. It does seem a lot for what is essentially an ORP, a piece of wood and a few goodies. I could maybe understand a bit more if the piece of wood you get is the same sized ones available during the end of th...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

We are only 5 weeks away from opening and still we don't have any confirmed opening hours from the park. I wonder why it is taking long that usual to announce the opening times for the park?

Re: Album's You've Heard and Your Review

Don Broco - Technology https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DNaOY1OW4AAnxrg.jpg As some of you may know, 2017 for me was a let down for new music published. Some of my favourite bands had released new albums which were in my opinion mediocre, I felt like a few bands had sold their sound to grab more mainstr...

Does anyone know if Digipass is available at Thorpe?


The Digipass was available last June when I visited, me and friends used it. Unsure if it is available this season or not. Hope this helps

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

It certainly looks fantastic! Just a quick question which I think has been answered before so I do apologise, do we know if that centre path that was opened during the Fireworks weekend will be a permanent path or just staff/construction only?

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Their main advertising will come a month before the opening I think. We have had their press from the name reveal and in the coming weeks we will have the main chunk of promotion. It will be a few weeks prior to the opening where news teams will experience the ride promoting the opening.
