Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I do find it strange how they have included Duel in the line up. It is out on a limb!

Okay, the trolling is in full swing. Thorpe's Twitter quickly posted and deleted #loggersleap2019. Couldn't get a screenshot, all I got was the notification and when I checked it had gone.

Re: Logger's Leap

They can't be trusted :lol In a way, it could devalue their social media channels if they post too many as wind ups as people will think their posts are unreliable. They could have stated it was Rocky in their original post, but instead the lead people and got people again :lol Good going, Thorpe :lol

It could be Thorpe playing with us. They are well known of doing that!

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - The Future

Rumba did begin to have some TLC but that seems to have stopped? It would be nice to see more of a story/theme applied to the area, like they were doing when they added a few things to related it to Inferno.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

It won't be based purely on Alton Towers history. The scripts will tie in with the area, but only in the sense of the Plague Doctor mentioning the deceased in the local area etc, or the Highway Men looting a carriage along the tracks of Alton. Other than that, it will be your standard Dungeons exper...

Re: SW9

I cant see it being a water ride where guests have a chance of getting wet, but I am confident it will be a coaster. Thorpe proved that dark rides investments don't work as replacements for coasters. These should be in addition to and not instead of!

If they are like Enchanted Village lodges then I am happy. We should be grateful they didn't change the offering to pods!

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

There is still work to be done. It doesn't feel the complete product as some of the figures still need to be repaired as they no longer move. In the hearse, I actually miss the "smoke" skeletons. The beasts don't work as well. It would also be nice to see some new props and effects added t...

Re: Alton Towers Stargazing Pods - Opening April 12th 2019

I honestly see nothing special in them. The show pod was open during Scarefest and I took a look. Laying on the bed, being 6ft 1, my feet were over the edge and the beds were so narrow. There is no way I could stay in one. Even on the double then I'd have to lay diagonal. To me, this isn't the bigge...

Hopefully we'll hear something soon. I still think Old Town is a potential site, especially with Loggers and Slammer SBNO.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

The Rapids used to close with the rest of the park, but I can only assume that it is to do with maintaince too. I believe closed season is a full on time for parks and every moment counts!

I have a video of the CBeebies Ents team dancing to this a couple of years back. One of my favourite Alton Towers moments ever!

That is the one I couldn't remember. To me, that is the one which screams out CBeebies purely for Ents dancing along to it one year. It actually is one of my favourite moments at Alton ever.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

Alton has its faults, but I am a firm believer it is actually what you make of each visit. People are quick to complain, but when you take a step back, it is a beautiful park with some great attractions. I think some areas need work to bring them up to standard, but hopefully TLC will continue to sh...
