Re: Scarefest

So what are the ticketing options for annual passholders with this new maze? A 3 maze ticket with AP discount is £16 and a 4 maze ticket is £28. It appears that there is no discount on 4 maze tickets so are they expecting us to pay £12 more for one maze? As a side note, I'm very excited for this Sc...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

http://i.imgur.com/cheqTJe.jpg This photo is confusing me, there are two bents going off into two directions (after the drop into the pit) but in the plans it does not show track to be in that location, I'm trying to get my head around it??? Unless that section is after it goes through the theming ...

Riding the Rapids in the Dark was on of my highlights, it's a shame that their new H&S policy put a stop to that during the middle of last years Scarefest.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I also think it looks like a burnt ship! Ship=pirates=mutiny bay=mutiny bay themed coaster=return of pirate show...please? So you want the most ideal end game of SW8 construction to be the return of the Pirate Show? Sorry but, no :P While I agree that I think the theming element will have a burnt/c...

Re: Chessington - General Discussion

I've just saw this in the media, very sad news.  You can't stop a fox that is determined to enter an enclosure, but I'm sure the zoo had done all they can to what they thought to be adequate precision to not only keep the animals in the enclosure, but other wild animals out.  Personally I feel that ...

Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

My advice is not to follow the crowed.  Check out the ride times link daily to get a rough idea what  time certain ride queues peak. Some rides tend to have a bigger queue in the mornings and then go quiet in the afternoon, whilst other rides do the opposite by being quiet first thing in the morning...

Re: Resort Questions

Hi everyone! Couple of resort questions. I'm taking my 2 year son for the first time! I frequented in the 90s and 00s and now bring the next generation! Anyway... 1) does the Splash Landings hotel have a secret drawer like the old AT rooms? 2) can Splash Landings guests visit the Cbeebies hotel? We...

Re: CBeebies Land Hotel - 2017

The current price will reflect the supply and demand, being a new hotel, the demand will be very high.  Give it a season or two and the price will drop.  The same happened with the Enchanted village.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I saw the first lift hill with my eyes for the first time today.  The photos don't give you the true sense how high this  is from the base to the top  and I've been told that there is a couple more meters to be added on top.  You also can now clearly see where the track enters through the main wicke...

Re: Fireworks

I think that they could also look into the idea of the possibility of reimburse the MAP with a £5 gift voucher to spend as they please on the resort on the day of park entry as a good will gesture.
