Re: Project 2020

Not heard that. Thorpe were very much aiming for 2020, last summer, at talk. I am still expecting to see a planning application around July or August time.

Re: Land of the Tiger - New for 2018

I am unsure about the mechanics, but the ride will have additional effects installed.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Alton Towers have posted an impressive timelapse video documenting the construction of Wicker Man from start to finish.

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I don't know?! My sister didn't like it, although she didn't visit the Pleasure Beach. Icon is the biggest draw for me. I think the plan is to do the rides one day and then Merlin attractions the morning after!

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I must agree. Icon is the only reason I'm making my first ever trip to Blackpool.  You never been to Blackpool?  I love it up there, we normally visit at the end of the Season when the illuminations are on.   Also Justin, am I correct in reading somewhere on the forum that you are from my neck of t...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I must agree. Icon is the only reason I'm making my first ever trip to Blackpool. Surely this just proves that the right kind of invrstments are needed in parks?

Re: Ride Downtime

There should be no need to worry about ride availability. There is no way to predict what will be open or if rides will suffer downtime throughout the day.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

That doesn't sound good, especially when you had people with you who don't usually visit. Hopefully, the situation is being monitored and feedback to the powers that be. An enjoyable day can still be had at Alton Towers, although it seems more and more apparent that you need a good knowledge of the ...

Re: Land of the Tiger - New for 2018

That frame is interesting. I wonder what this is for as it looks permanent. I doubt they will get rid of the wall. Hopefully they'll paint it!

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

It is good to experience once, especially with the soundtrack but after that, it is better without VR!

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

The first image was very confusing. Some could have taken it that the ride opened on 11.11.18!

Looking forward to riding it in the summer!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I'm sure Alton don't really want to operate a park which lets down guests. While there have been some questionable decisions (removal of rides for TLC - Twirling Toadstalls, Charlie, SubTerra etc, along with the removal of baggage holds and staggered opening times) I am sure Alton don't go out of th...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

While it is disappointing that Bradley has left MMM, I am confident that Merlin have learnt a lot from Wicker Man, with regards to well themed attractions and high quality ride experiences. Wicker Man has certainly paid off for Alton Towers and has received high praise. I am certainly one of the rid...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

Morgan, The VR does seem brighter in Part 3. I had the same opinion and felt I could see more when riding it the other weekend.

I'm going to give it another go a week on Sunday. Hopefully, it will be better and improvements are made in the meantime!
