Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

V for Vendetta- 10/10

Very interesting film that was deeper than I thought would be, with some great character development as well.

EDIT - After looking further, this seems to be registered by a company/person based on Kentucky USA, so this makes me wonder if it is for FRIGHT NIGHTS.

This person (Robert Kirkman) seems to be the creator of the series.

Re: Scarefest

Many of us were hoping for a new version of the maze but by the looks of things the finale room seems to be the same which makes me think What Lies Within is back (again). The ToTT brand will most likely stay with the park for as long as Scarefest continues, but it WLW has overstayed its welcome. If...

Re: Fright Nights

Pre-booking for Fright Nights with a standard annual pass seems a bit more expensive this year, ranging from £5 to £15. Not very happy about this, paying £5 was a bit annoying to begin with but £15 isn't right.

Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

That's some of the old dentist scene props, I'd imagine it's getting a few scenes redone to keep it fresh.

Re: Scarefest

I've got a few hopes of what I'd like to see, definitely doable but I think this year is going to be more similar to last year with minimal changes. -Revamped Freak Show. I'm not a fan of the current scare zones, maybe if this was an hourly show similar to the old Carnival of Screams breakouts. -Nox...

Re: Scarefest

Always exciting when work in the ruins begins. Hopefully something is done to ToTT to keep it fresh this year, I was hoping for a new variant but by the looks of things it's What Lies Within again. If it's the same it'd be nice if they removed the conga aspect and expanded the maze into the banqueti...

Re: Colossus

I've only ridden it once this year and couldn't agree more, I'd like to see it leave sooner rather than later. I'd like to see it replaced by a traditional dark ride (that doesn't revolve around horror and doesn't use VR), maybe a log flume too if they could squeeze it in now Loggers is more or less...

The Babadook- 10/10

Incredibly creepy and disturbing film. Without giving too much away it's incredibly deep, and doesn't rely on gore or cheap jumpscares to be unsettling.

Well done to the ents team, it was great last year. Can't wait to see how they make it better this season.

Hopefully the ending will be sorted out, it sorta just ended without a climax.

Rolicoli8 and I have been busy figuring out the Terror of the Towers route used last year. Any lines in red are the route, blue lines are parts of the route we're unsure on.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

I've been on Rise of the Demon a few times now so I thought I'd do a proper review for it. In short, I think it's got some great ideas but they're pretty poorly executed. (Major spoilers below!) Technically speaking, the transit system is incredible, and couldn't have been done any better, makin...

Re: Morgan's Dark-Ride Ideas!

It's been a while since I've updated this topic as I'm changing the way I develop scripts and rides as a whole. In the past few months plenty of ideas have flown over my head, dozens of projects started and delayed, scrapped and rebooted. I'm in the beginning stages of my next project (I think) so I...

Re: Your Favourite TV Shows

I've been rewatching Peep Show recently, hilarious programme that's well worth your time if you come across it.
Rick and Morty as well, so dark and silly, can't wait for the third season (and that Szechuan Sauce)

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

I've seen a tonne of films recently so I'll do a quick review for some of them. Cabin in the Woods- 2/10 It had a nice concept but I felt it was really poorly executed, and it just wasn't scary... at all. Creep- 7/10 Not a very well known film, popped up on Netflix one evening so I gave it a go. Gre...

Don't suppose anyone has a good plan of the ruins I could use? I've looked pretty much everywhere and the only one I can find is pretty low-quality.

Re: Saw - The Ride

I've been on the ride a few times this season and unfortunately they haven't been, which is a shame considering they're either broken or turned off.
