Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I was at Thorpe yesterday and all day there was staff and signs outside saying that the ride would be unavailable today. I, of course, was disappointed but continued a good day on the park. It was at about 5 when I said that if I couldn't go on it, I would at least have a look at the shop. We turned...

Re: The Next Big Attraction

I think that a ride similar to Lost Gravity in Walibi Holland would be a good investment for the park. It's compact, intense and doesn't require too much height. I think it would work well as in the UK, we don't have any B&M floorless rides. It could be well themed and the throughput looks alrig...

I think he is referring to all the activity happening around DBGT, therefore the speculation which comes with it!


Exactly!

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I just fell bad for the resort. Merlin as a whole has seen a loss in prospective profits over the last year, and delaying this over half-term (One of the most popular times of the year) will mean they wont get large numbers until the summer. I know they are doing their best, and I can wait, but hype...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

They will probably want to get it open before Half-term because they will probably want to first test it to the public before the Saturday. The more people, the more pressure, so a weekday from the 23rd to the 27th I think is most likely. (This is if "finishing touches" is true, and isn't ...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I guess it will be Friday the 27th otherwise loads of profit will be lost over half-term. If they open it even later (after half-term) many families wont get on it by the end of July/August

Also, about the Rules, some are quite odd. 1 & 2: Fight Club. Duh... 3: A possibility of the group being split up. Either you have the choice or you are forced to split up and this is to make it feel as if you're breaking the rules, or are unsafe. Or more likely is it that we will be moving aro...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

When Derren starts talking about "Right now is real...", towards the end he says, "...as if that moment were your first... or last." Could this mean that death will appear as a theme in the ride? I haven't listened to it, but it's what he says in his latest stage show: Miracle. ...

It was in the Amerian Werewolf in London maze (2014). I found a video, the train is at 2:58 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-lbYtVsVeE

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I think the train is a part of scenery. I think it might light up and make a loud noise as you walk past it. I've seen this type of scare in a scare maze in universal studios halloween horror nights

Re: SW8

At first I thought it would be in Gloomy wood, behind Duel, but now i realize that it could be a water coaster (like Poseidon at Europa park). I'm not saying that's what i want; I'm just saying that i think that it is a possible thing that could happen.
