Re: Thorpe Park Resort - The Future

Honestly, not really surprised by this. The pricing was high and the reception I had from others who had eaten there was overall negative. I would like to see the area used towards a new attraction since we do have a fair few outlets nearby.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

The problem with the mask rule is that people will always try and find a way around it. If a member of staff asks you to remove it, you could remove it and then put it back on again in a few minutes. It really does leave people with an unnerving feeling having people with masks on who aren't actors....

Re: The Next Themed Area/Area Refurb

I think the most likely/most logical area to refurb/retheme will be Cloud Cuckoo Land. With the Dungeons coming in 2019, I would really like to the see this part of the park restored and made to look good again. It's going to be getting a lot more visitors in that section of the park so they really ...

Re: Rita - General Discussion

If SW9 doesn’t turn out to be a replacement for Rita, I think it would benefit from getting those newer OTSRs seen on Intamin rides like I305 and Maverick.  Doesn’t either TFD or KK (I can never remember which is which :lol) only have lap bar restraints?  Mack / Taron style lap bar restraints would...

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - 6/10 Being a fan of the Harry Potter franchise and the first Fantastic Beasts film, this new installment is a disappointment to me. Throughout the film it can be messy and no real sense of the direction it's heading and felt bloated with a lot going on. ...

Re: Project 42 (Nemesis Sub-Terra)

Personally I would like to see Sub Terra return. As Dan said, the park is seriously lacking in flat rides and attractions to fill in the gap between coasters. If Sub Terra was to return next season with the addition of The Dungeons, I would say it could be seen as a strong season after Wicker Man's ...

oh dear, the mind wanders... loud bang, the area closed the next day so no public can see any work being carried out... I don’t think a loose item would close it off for too long, would it? I mean a phone is more dangerous to riders than the ride surely, a quick check of the impact area would revea...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Wait, they sell maze tickets in the smiler shop? Where else do they sell them? I don't think nicky.borrill meant The Smiler shop, I think they meant the fastrack kiosk opposite the arcade and behind The Smiler toilets. I don't know for sure but they could potentially sell them at the Dark Forest ki...
