Re: Escape Room Attractions

I have done several of Room Escape Southend’s rooms which have all be scare themed, and really enjoyable! I have also done Room Escape London which had a ‘Steal the crown jewels’ theme. Totally different experience, but just as fun. Same as Dom I have a list of different attractions around the count...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

It seems strange that they have introduced the ‘live actor attraction’ category, but TWD:TR doesn’t include this. With it being the year of the walking dead and the new ride themed around them, surely it would be standard that we get actual walkers within the attraction? Unless they have some sort o...

They have also confirmed the ride will open this weekend and the TLC project will continue when the park is closed in the evenings and mid week. :)

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

If that’s the case, that’s pretty poor marketing on Thorpe’s behalf. Their social media campaign says: “Reckon you have what it takes to take on #TheWalkingDead Immerse yourself in The Walking Dead: The Ride only at THORPE PARK from Easter.” Easter 2018 is Sunday 1st April, so if it’ll be opening a ...

Beauty and the Beast (2017): 8/10

Great cast, great soundtrack and nice refresh of a classic, even though at time it was near identical! :)

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I agree with Lakey, it just doesn’t seem very... exciting? The layout is pretty meh compared to what we’ve seen achieved by this manufacturer, and our ever growing expectations. The fact it has no real theme is a shame as these coasters can utilise and increase ride experience dramatically. It’s gre...

Loving the fresh look for TTC. I’m so glad Towers Street is having the makeover, hopefully it’ll bring back some of the magic :)

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

The Midnight Man- 4/10 Despite the trailer making this film look a rather promising horror, this was such a let down. The acting was poor, and any sense of mystery/fear of the Midnight Man himself was lost within minutes of the first interaction. The Bye Bye Man - 5/10 More of a thriller than a horr...

Dubai seem to love a simulator/screen based ride. With the kind of budgets they have I’d love to see them invest in some great quality coasters... hello B&M? :P

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Downsizing - 5/10 I loved the concept when first hearing about it, and as mentioned previously the first half sets the storyline great. However it all goes downhill from there and makes a lousy attempt at building a love story... if that’s what you’d call it? Had I paid to see this at the cinema, I ...

Re: Silver Dollar City

It looks like it’ll be fun, but I feel they chose spinning cars as a gimmick. This layout could be much more suited to a standard launch coaster train.

Re: Upcoming movie releases!

New horror film due out in June 2018 called Hereditary: https://youtu.be/YHxcDbai7aU

This premiered at the Sundance film festival, and has received critical acclaim! The trailer certainly looks promising, so I look forward to seeing this when it’s out :)
