Re: Busch Gardens Tampa

How do you reveal the train design for your new roller coaster when the train itself isn't ready and you want to reveal it at IAAPA? Simple - make the train in cake form of course! The train design for Tigris, the Premier Rides Sky Rocket coaster due to open next year, has been revealed at IAAPA tod...

Re: Winter Wonderland - Hyde Park London

With the opening of Winter Wonderland now under 2 weeks away, we now have the official map for 2018's event: http://i66.tinypic.com/i4iq1h.jpg From what I can tell, there appears to have been a bit of a more substantial layout change this year, but I could be mistaken on that There looks to be many ...

Re: Safari Lodges Development

It's been a while since we had any news on the Safari Lodges, however, as reported by SouthParks News , the Resort have now submitted revised plans for a much smaller development comprising of just 34 lodges. The 11 premium lodges, the bar named The Watering Hole, and the dedicated reception buildin...

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

It's been confirmed that the opening date has been pushed back for a fifth time to 2024. There has also been another management change with chief executive Humphrey Percy leaving the project, and being replaced by the original financial backer of the plans, Dr Abdulla Al-Humaaidi. SouthParks News ha...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

Considering all the issues DBGT has had, and the fact that DBGT requires a significant amount of operational budget just to open (to the extent that Thorpe could only open it from 12pm each day), I would be very, very surprised if a similar attraction were to be installed at Alton Towers.It is also ...

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

The news about the Keltbray investment is the same news SouthParks reported on a few days ago. I'm not sure where Blooloop have got the information on about the IPs being disclosed by the end of the year, however I'm not sure that that can be seen as accurate as their article states that the Paramou...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Looks like over the last few nights that they have been closing Thirteen for night time riding  I suspect the closure of Th13teen during the last couple of evenings has had more to do with the low temperatures than anything else. From what I recall, I believe if the temperature drops below 4 or 5C ...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

I love that the Resort have put on some additional entertainments for today. With the park expected to be exceptionally busy it is things like this which will make all the difference to people's day. Hopefully it'll show those who allocate the budgets that it's worth giving the Entertainments Team t...

Re: Howl-o-ween

For those who may not have seen, SouthParks has a review from the first day of Howl'o'ween 2018 . I visited on the first day of the event on Saturday 13th and have to say I was quite impressed. Creepy Caves surprised me with its intensity, and easily beats some of Thorpe's offering! There were secti...

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

I will be honest, with the lack of press releases over the last 12 months I had pretty much given up hope on this project ever happening. However, this news has made me feel that there is still a chance for London Resort. A company the size of Keltbray surely wouldn't get involved with a project if ...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019?

Another prediction for you.... I don't think we have seen the last of the drop towers from Nemesis Sub-Terra either. They're not in the building with Project 42 and are far too new to scrap... Plus all of the Dungeons I'm aware of has a drop tower ride... And there's a space where the Great Glass E...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - The Future

I'm afraid that doesn't mean anything in terms of developments at Thorpe. It is simply an advert for The Purge TV series which is on Amazon Prime (other streaming services are available). When I was at The Resort on Friday morning that advert was playing in a cycle with adverts for the new Johnny En...

Re: Project 2020

A bit of totally random speculation here as this could be a genuine teaser, or simply Thorpe messing with us. However, I was looking at the description for Terror at Amity High and noticed a familiar name in the description: NEW for 2018, It’s Big Bob’s Homecoming Bash , and the teens of Amity Cove ...

Re: Fright Nights

A possible alternative theory may be that we'll see a scare zone on Swarm Island. Thorpe have been promising that 'this year no where is safe', yet, as things stand, Swarm Island is free of any Fright Nights attractions, making it a bit of a safe zone with the current confirmed line up.

Re: Kings Island

Pretty much as expected from the rumours then. Firehawk was pretty uncomfortable when I rode it in July (although arguably slightly better than Nighthawk at Carowinds). Plus its throughput was very poor, even with the dual station loading so that no doubt had an influence over the decision for it to...

With their Halloween Haunt season in full swing, one area of theming has drawn a little bit more attention at Kings Island. The Kings Island Haunt graveyard has a freshly dug grave, with a sign indicating that a major ride will be departing at the end of the season. The date on the sign matches what...
