The hotel will re-open at some point in 2020 “We’re alway...

Hi :) This year Sub Species has two possible endings, each of which is different. The first ending (going through the left side of the bridge at the end of the dark section) is the ending featuring the crawl tunnel. You can do the short version of the tunnel if you get this ending - just kee...

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

That logo has actually been out a while now, as well as the name 'London Resort'.

Ultimately, I think this name and logo will very much be a placeholder for the planning process. If the Resort goes ahead I fully expect that we will see a different name depending on the new partnerships they form.

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

This makes me so, so sad and angry at the same time. Why do Disney feel the need to butcher a ride which has beautiful theming and still attracts significant queues all year round? In my eyes it will be totally unforgivable if they go through with turning it into Guardians of the Galaxy. Yes, I get ...

Re: Cedar Point

The track for Steel Vengeance is now complete! Cedar Point Twitter have posted a short video showing the incredible scale of the first drop and a stunning overview of the coaster. I think it has to be one of the only times I've been lost for words to describe a coaster!

Also in the trailer, we are given a brief look at a set of four runes - three of which we already know ...

Re: Rumba Rapids

If I'm honest I can't see the closure of Rumba having too much of an impact as with it being a water ride it was rare that it had a queue of any significant length during Fright Nights anyway. I'm also sure this isn't the first time the Resort have closed the Rapids at this time of year, if not clos...

Re: Fright Nights

It's always a difficult one as whilst as enthusiasts we'd love Thorpe to follow Alton's example and use all in house concepts, ultimately Thorpe's main target are going to be drawn in by the big IPs. Like others, I do have concerns about how the mazes will be received by those who are not familiar w...

Re: Fright Nights

I have to say I am a bit surprised about the amount of negativity surrounding Thorpe's announcement. On the one hand people were saying last year how the Lionsgate mazes had had their time and they needed a change - whether that be a new IP or new in house mazes. It's no secret that Platform 15 didn...

From a personal point of view I do find the choice of The Walking Dead as an IP an interesting one. Whilst it is less popular than it once was, the show does still have a significa...

As things stand, based on the information we have, I am leaning towards thinking we may see some form of re-theme for at least part of Mutiny Bay. However, exactly what this will be I'm not 100% sure. With the re-development of the Courtyard, and the removal of the stage for the Pirates of Mutiny Ba...
