Just a quick reminder that Alton Towers opening day on March 17th will be a meet up, not an event :)

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

I suspect it's a case of Sunday's having shorter hours to partially off-set the later opening on Thursday/Friday/Saturday. I do suspect that these will not be the final version of the opening times, I really wouldn't be surprised to see some changes to these hours before the start of the season and ...

As posted on SouthParks News , Chessington have published their provisional opening times for 2018. The MAP weekend is set to be 10th-11th March, with the Resort opening fully on 17th March. Whilst there isn't a huge amount of difference to 2017's hours, it does look like we may be getting an additi...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

As reported on SouthParks News , the provisional opening times have been revealed for Thorpe Park Resort. The Resort will open on 23rd March 2018. Interestingly, there appears to be a number of 10am-10pm days in the peak summer season, however these seem to be being paid for with additional closed d...

Yes, accommodation can offer a large return on in...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

When SouthParks had the talk at our Summer Sizzler event the throughput of DBGT was mentioned. According to the notes I took, the ride should have a throughput of between 8-900 people an hour, however, realistically has only been hitting 700 people per hour. I will admit I was surprised at how low t...

Re: Fireworks

Having seen the show both days I was very impressed with this year's fireworks. Whilst it didn't use the screens or projections like they have in previous years, I really liked how the focus was on the fireworks themselves and creating a stunning spectacle with them. Using the theme of what Towers m...

Re: Scarefest

The Welcoming is very much intended to be more of a theatrical maze rather than a maze which is overly scary. In terms of 'set pieces', you have the stage area in the first section, then as you make your way through you have the giant pig/dog on the spit roast, the 'trial scene' where you ha...
