Re: Efteling

Wow, that's a nice surprise announcement. Sad to hear that Bob is at the end of its life, it was a fun little ride but I can see why they're closing it. Interesting to hear that they're once again opening two coasters, but what's interesting is that they apparently aren't racing like Joris. What's a...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Rode it last night and wow, it's even more fun in the dark. We managed to get put near the back and the thing was abosutely hauling through the course- probably the fastest I've seen it. https://i.imgur.com/h0lk6MC.jpg https://i.imgur.com/1S1oJfT.jpg https://i.imgur.com/jP6WkXg.jpg

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

I was at the park yesterday and it looks like, with a bit of work, it could easily be one of the better years. The first Scarefesty thing we experienced was the new Patch's Halloween Party show. Yes, it is intented for younger audiences, but it's so great to have live entertainment in Fountain Squar...

Yes, in all the mazes the actors can- and often will touch.

Re: The Couch

Overcooked is half price in Nintendo eShop, should I go for it? I need more multiplayer games but the lack of online puts me off.

The Project 42 page has been updated with a little more information on what we can expect from the story. Project 42 invites valiant volunteers to enter the underground Phalanx compound in a bid to outwit what awaits them inside. The Phalanx requires volunteers to enter the compound, find the vaccin...

Re: Tifford Valley Theme Park

As Tifford Terrors launches this Saturday, it's about time we showed off our three remaining haunts. First up is Freaky Frank's Family Frights, a cute little family maze themed around Frankenstein's Monster. https://i.imgur.com/AlrJh3x.png Then there are our two scare-zones, Woeful Woods and Undead ...

Re: Film Club

Slightly amended rules for the next couple weeks as we enter spooky season. Instead of suggesting a film for each genre, for the next month it's all about scary films. It could be a horror or something a bit spookier and friendly, or perhaps it's a film thats just outright disturbing. We don't have ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It's a great idea but I'm unsure if it'll happen. It seems that Towers struggle to hire actors so they'll be focussed on using them in the mazes.

A new video from the Facebook Careers page is set to a snippet of the Scarefest Towers St. music (along with some comedic videos of the mazes if you haven't already seen it).

Re: Tifford Valley Theme Park

The nights are getting longer and the temperature is dropping further and further... Work on Tifford Terrors actually started last Halloween with the construction of two of our mazes, and just after the final version of the park was ready, Halloween prep properly began. We're glad to announce that T...

Re: Project 2020

I've been thinking lately- sooner or later we'll probably be seeing a planning application be submitted. So before that happens, can we take a moment to take in Thorpe as it is right now? Whatever happens in 2020 it's sure to change the landscape of their future and the image in our heads whenever w...

During those two weeks, discuss what you thought of the movie and suggest new ones below. Please don't forget to use spoiler tags! These films will usually be found on Ne...

Re: Fright Nights

The rumour started because the maze hasn't started (visible) construction. It should be noted that the 2015 version didn't start until much later on in the year, and things like Welcoming have just started. I fully believe it's coming back!

Re: ‘Stargazing Pods’ Accommodation Discussion

Will I be staying? No thanks. Firstly, the rooms look far too small. Imagine how hot and stuffy they're going to get, and how much worse they'll be if we have another summer like the one just gone. Then there's the bathroom issue- having en suite rooms is very standard nowadays and a great convienie...
