Do you get sick on theme park rides? You can help!

Hi guys, Odds are you don't know or remember me as I'm like a ghost but a lazy one that isn't very good at haunting places, but I'm here after some help!!   To cut a long story short but still quite long as this is me, I'm currently carrying out a research project that's bas...

Re: TT ScareMazing North 2016 - Reviews & Feedback

I wasn't planning on making a post, but I just wanted to say thank you to everyone I was with for (literally) helping me through the weekend, despite being incredibly unfortunate a few times I generally had a lovely time- it's a shame that I didn't get to speak to many people and that I ended up lea...

Re: Coaster Inversions

If it's causing you such severe issues, I think you'd want to avoid rides with such force for some time- even visit a doctor if it's concerning. From my own experience, you can only make yourself worse by going on forceful rides and coasters frequently or by pushing yourself more and more, so be car...

Is the Mystery of Hocus Pocus Hall not returning or am I being somewhat ignorant? It's a real shame if it isn't, it's such a nicely themed attraction.

Re: SP Southern Weekender 2015 Feedback & Reviews

So yesterday I went to Thorpe for what was my first event, and I was absolutely terrified. The sheer size of the group seemed absolutely daunting to me, and I was afraid that I wouldn't fit in and the like; I'm glad to say that I was very wrong! I genuinely felt so welcomed and included and wasn't l...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Could they not just remake it? Luke, build a new one from scratch? I liked it while it worked The problem with that idea is that S&S discontinued the Sky Swat years ago, so even if Thorpe wanted to completely rebuild it they wouldn't be able to as there would be no-one to supply the parts. I do...

Re: Thorpe Park - New Indoor Attraction 2016

I may be a bit late in posting this but on Saturday Ranger County and the general area on that side of X seemed so bare! I never realised what a difference the arena made as I'd never been in it and often ignored it's presence, but that area felt so empty; I believe there were trees around the arena...

Re: New for 2015 - I'm a Celebrity! Maze

Yes it did at one point say that, but i believe that was just a mistake on the website, but don't quote me on that. With regards to Fright Nights, i am fairly certain Thorpe Park will already have plans in place with regards to this. As long as they don't do the white marquees on Neptune's Beach i ...

Re: New for 2015 - I'm a Celebrity! Maze

Last year, I believe either the Thorpe or RnR website said that My Bloody Valentine was located on The Swarm island. I don't do the mazes so I'm unsure of the space required but it may be a thought.

Re: Thorpe Park - New Indoor Attraction 2016

Has the dark ride officially been dubbed as a 'world's first' of sorts? Oh dear. USPs aren't always the way, people aren't that arrogant as to only be drawn into something when it has a 'UNIQUE WORLD'S FIRST' element or is the 'FIRST RIDE OF IT'S KIND'. Look at Ninferno, that's doing pretty well for...

Re: New for 2015 - I'm a Celebrity! Maze

I immediately thought of the I'm a Celebrity/jungle/wilderness section in Madame Tussauds too! As a whole, I'm not too sure how I feel about this. I can see why Thorpe feel the need for this from a business perspective, but even so it doesn't seem to have been particularly well received from the non...

Re: New Ride 2015

I feel like this will be more on the 'resort' side of things, rather than a 'ride' of sorts. I believe the park plan on really pushing RnR and so they'd really need more things to do to cope with the crowds who'd be mulling around the park rather than standing in queuelines. Neptune's beach retheme ...

Re: Thorpe Park - New Indoor Attraction 2016

Am I wrong in thinking that the next big development was pushed back a year due to Thorpe Shark? No you are right- usually there is a three year scheme Really? All this hype and it could be to do with the hotel!?!?! No, this 'big development' was originally intended to appear this year, but due to ...
