Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hi everyone. I really want to do Alton Towers scarefest this year but I'll be travelling without a car this time. So I know it will make sense to stay in a hotel over night, which is what I'm going to do, but I need directions on how to get To Alton Towers. I managed to reach Thorpe Park on my own ...

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Okja- 8.5 A very powerful film and refreshingly original. Despite the 'super pigs' being fictional creatures, the film showed some realities of the meat industry and I was a complete mess by the end of it. Definitely the most emotional film I've seen in a while and a great watch (for meat eaters and...

Re: SP Summer Sizzler 2017 - Reviews & Feedback

Thank you to the team and Thorpe for one of the best events yet, my dad and I really enjoyed it! For £18 I was really impressed with how much we got. The talk and BTS were really interesting and probably my favourite so far (and I would give my life for the stealth suit and x no way out car). The ER...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

The big metal thing is going to be the building to house the secret freefall drop. It'll be the world's first wooden vertical freefall drop coaster called 12, prequel to 13 :sus:

Re: San Francisco Dungeon & Madame Tussauds

San Francisco Dungeon are planning to open a rat cafe in July (which excites me greatly) and rescue rats will be up for adoption.
I'm hoping something similar will happen in the UK at some point as it sounds fun, works with the dungeons theme and would give some rats new homes.

Re: TTSP@15 Event Feedback

This event was definitely one of the best so far. The ERTs were perfect, managed to get 8 rides on nemesis (while seeing John Wardley's jacket <3). I was very impressed by the Q&A setup, I was internally screaming with excitement at how beautiful it was and John was great. Was really nice to see...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

I think it has the right amount of scary. It is certainly more so than last year and it has a sense of tension which puts people on edge. It's much more immersive as well which makes it feel more real. This type of scary is good as if it was full of jump scares I don't think it would be as enjoyable...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

I think it should be a very colourful dessert themed area where all the rides are themed to food like ice cream, cupcakes, chocolate etc. Also random big foods everywhere (like in cloudy with a chance of meatballs) and big sprinkles on everything and loads of glitter and a few unicorns and rainbows ...

Re: Food

I noticed that pizza pasta at Thorpe now offers "Quorn ball" pizza which is new this year. Does anyone know if other Quorn products are available in other food outlets? (at any of the parks) It would be good having veggie sausage rolls, burgers etc. for people like me who are annoying and ...

Re: Towers Loving Care

I'm loving the improvements but I'm slightly concerned about the smell pods as I'm basically emotionally attached to the old ones. Hopefully it's mostly the same smell or my nose will cry

Thanks to everyone for a fantastic weekend, definitely one of my favourite events so far. Made a couple of new friends which was good as well. The BTS was great being able to see Mine Tours in detail, however I still managed to walk into a wall on my run through XD. Everyone that dressed up (and did...

Re: Bubbleworks 2017 refurbishment

I know that some of the bids have got into the hundreds. Even one of the smaller items is currently at £250 so I'm not very hopeful for getting anything :lol

Re: Bubbleworks 2017 refurbishment

I've heard that some items from the ride are going to be auctioned for charity, does anyone know anything about this and when the auctions start? (I failed to acquire a Flume duck and as Bubbleworks has 105 ducks, I feel I have a bigger chance of getting one)
