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: Universal Orlando Resort

Universal Orlando have just announced a new hotel complex which, if I have my Orlando geography correct, will be constructed on the site of the former Wet 'n' Wild water park and feature two hotels. According to the announcement, prices will start from under $100 a night, making it Universal's cheap...

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...

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

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...
