Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

"An event fee applies to Special events, including Fright Nights, Concerts and Mazes." 

This doesn't sound optional to me.  I can understand it for concerts and mazes, but park entry shouldn't come with a compulsory fee

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

This would be a real shame if it turns out to be true.  Whilst most people would agree the attraction isn't as good as the WDW version, the CMs more than make up for it with an often dungeons-rivalling performance.  Personally I think they could do with a complete revamp starting with, as Katie said...

Re: TTSP@15 Event Feedback

TTSP events are usually amazing, but this one somehow managed to top them all! Both ERT sessions were amazing – Nemesis was running better than ever and the time was all the sweeter after the downtime it had had during the day. The usual takeovers were great – the larger group size meant that we wer...

Re: Vampire

Does anyone know why the Vampire's voice has been changed? It isn't anywhere near as creepy as it used to be and the "evil laugh" when you leave the station is just weird now.

Re: SP ScareMazing South 2016 - Reviews & Feedback

Yet another amazing TTSP event! The two BTS tours were really insightful, Platform 15 giving us a slightly nostalgic look at the old CCR train as well a closer look at Logger’s Leap (which looked in a marginally better condition than the train). It was also really good to see how Big Top had been fi...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Usually it's just a supplement for entry to these (I believe last year it was either £5 or £10, can't remember which)

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

^ Firstly, the Premium MAP gives free parking at all of the parks (Parking at AT is normally £6 per car and I think it's the same at the other parks). If you're not planning on going to any Central London attractions in August or any of the Halloween events and you're only planning on visiting each ...

Re: The Future of Sonic Spinball

I agree that it's a fun little coaster, but it's getting really rough in places. Particularly at the bottom of the hill just before the first horseshoe curve. Maybe if AT are wanting to keep it, they should begin to address things like that.

I don't really know what I can add to all the comments above - it was another amazing event from the TTSP Team! The day had so many highlights that it would be impossible to pick one. BTS at Molly Crowe and Terror were awesome; as ever it's really interesting to see inside the mazes and to see the e...

Re: Jack the Ripper Set - At the London Dungeons

Pretty simple really - there's a door behind the bar. When the lights go out, the door opens, the strobes start and he does his scaring then runs back into there before the main lights come back on again.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Anyone know whether you can collect an all day dining wristband the day before you want to use it? We want to have it for SMN but don't really want to break from the group to get it.

Re: SP ScareMazing South 2015 - Reviews & Feedback

As someone that didn't really want to do the mazes, I'd been unsure whether or not to sign up for SMS. Thankfully Michelle persuaded me to come along and I'm really glad I did. Behind the scenes tours of both Saw Alive and The Big Top were great and showed all the little details that go into scaring...

Re: Great Yarmouth Sealife Celebrate it's 25th Birthday

Is Yarmouth really busy enough for that?? The seafront pretty much shuts down over the winter months so they'd only get 6 months trade from another attraction and, I'd guess, that wouldn't be enough to justify the cost. It's sad, because MT there would be pretty cool, but that combined with the pote...

Lots of us at went on this at Sizzler not too long after lunch and we were told by one of the ride ops that between 50 and 60 people that day hadn't been able to ride because of the new restraints and that they were being adjusted to lock higher that evening. Unfortunately we didn't try reriding yes...

I'm using one of the £10 tickets from my MAP tomorrow at AT. Does the person using it also get early entry or would it just be me as the MAP holder??
