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. The font of ...

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...

Re: Kings Island

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...

As of yesterday (19th September), it's been a full 12 months since the last official press release from London Resort Company Holdings. Their Facebook page has also been seemingly abandoned with no posts since 19th September last year. Whilst there was a project update meeting with the planning body...

Re: Chessington - General Discussion

I can't say I'm surprised that Hocus Pocus Hall is going. It is a shadow of what it once was and has been looking very tired for a while now. I think it was pretty obvious once the 3D glasses were taken away that it was on borrowed time. For me, it's never been something I've gone out of my way to d...

Re: Fright Nights

On paper, this looks like quite a good, balanced line-up, with a nice mix of IP attractions and in house concepts. Vulcan Peak sounds the most interesting of the two new additions to me. At a guess, I'd say this is going to be in The Jungle area of the park given the use of the word 'Vulcan' which c...

Re: Fright Nights

The only problem with in house based on their history is that the first year its open its terrible :lol That's not always the case. Studio 13 was a great maze - Thorpe got that right in its first (and only) year. I've always thought it such a shame that Studio 13 only got one year and the Resort di...

Re: Fright Nights

I'm very disappointed that THE BIG TOP hasn't been announced as returning. It was arguably Thorpe's strongest maze and has been getting better year on year. I've personally never had much love for PLATFORM 15, but I guess the park are limited as to what they can put in that space - I shall reserve j...

Re: Cedar Point

For the first time since opening, Steel Vengeance is running a three train operation! Hopefully this will help reduce queue times for the ride, and with the Park's Halloween even coming up will help add what will be much needed capacity.

Re: Fright Nights

Roaming actors tend to stick to a set route so it could be they will have free reign. Were their roamers last year? Also rumours are spreading that Big Top won't be returning this year. I do not believe this rumour though as TP would be stupid to get rid of their best in house maze since The Asylum...

I made my first ever to Blackpool Pleasure Beach this weekend, which means I finally got to experience Icon. I tried to go in with a clean slate to try and ensure I didn't judge the ride before I'd experienced it - especially given the mixed reviews the ride has had. Overall, I managed 4 rides over ...

Re: Inside Alton Towers - General Discussion

I think all things considered the documentary has shown the Resort in a positive light. It was to be expected that it would be aimed at the GP, after all, in order for this kind of show to get comissioned it would need to have a wide appeal. Yes, there were a few omissions - the most obvious one bei...

This also means we have been able to provide a POV which is of a much higher quality than the majority of others...
