Re: Scarefest

On the subject of freak show being the only scare zone, I'm worried about the atmosphere of the back of the park. FB is going to feel dead I believe. with nothing really between GW and FB I think it might feel a bit empty and boring. With all the scares at the front of the park (Towers, mutiny bay,...

What about the fire effects used on Scorpion Express at CWoA?

All the Terms & Conditions say is that October 20th to 31st the vouchers cannot be used. You should be fine on the 1st as it doesn't say anything about fright nights at all.

(This is for cadbury)

Okay,  many thanks

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Does anybody know if the Kelloggs or Cadbury 2for1 vouchers are valid for use during fright nights? As I'm hoping to go on the 1st October, and don't want to turn up just to be turned away.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

I'm thinking that they could possibly be there to look around the SW8 site, and for installing the rumoured flame effects, smoke effects and lighting at the same time.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Just a little bit of speculation... would be interesting if AT went all out with some form of Animatronics in this wicker head piece, maybe some satanic ritual talk etc As good as having an animatronic in the main theming structure, I personally highly doubt Alton would keep on top of maintaining i...

Ha ha! Alton would ruin it by planting a small hill with the Towers on top in the background!

Yep, and maybe with a small asterisk, saying that fire will be working until it breaks, and they will fix it up 6 years later in a heavily marketed "clean up" plan :p

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Just got inspired to do a speculative "artist's impression" type sketch of what I think this coaster may or may not be like. Bear in mind it is just something I knocked together for fun and is entirely just for artistic purposes so isn't even necessarily accurate to the layout we already ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Not doubting plans 'Wicker Man' just doesn't fit. Until I have it confirmed by Merlin then anything is possible. The two don't fit for me personally, but that is just my own opinion. There is a possibility this trademark was just pushed out to fool people. Doubt it, but must be considered :) I was ...

The ride should be called Wicker head & shoulders rather than Wicker Man.

In all seriousness, this looks like it will be very impressive!

Sponsored by "heads & shoulders" ??? :lol

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

IT - 9/10 Really wasn't expecting it to be amazing, but, my god it blew me away! I found the entire film creepy, scary, but yet funny. The plot was pretty good, however predictable and at points didn't make sense. There was 4 or 5 really good jump scares, and plenty of others as well. I did yell out...

Re: The Last Film You Watched and Your Rating

Atomic Blonde - 9/10 Was very surprised at how brilliant this film was, definitely up there with my favourite spy movies. I found it very intense and gripping throughout and really liked the Many plot twists. Also, the few jump scares definitely got me !! The action was great and very brutal and the...

Re: Scarefest

Me personally... 1.)  I'd love there to be like 4 scare zones - 2 new style, 2 old style. As the new style is quite good, but the old version was much better but I'd love a mixture of both types.  2.) I think the park entirely is in need of getting scarefest decor put up, to make it all feel more Ha...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

Seeing as SW8 is supposedly part of Gloomy Wood, maybe it could have a haunted railway theme maybe? It's just something random I've thought, but, who knows?! I'm still not keen on the wickerman theme. me neither, I don't know why but it just doesn't have a "feel" to it if you get me. Who ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I know I'm swaying from the crowd a bit, but personally, i think we are getting mislead by Merlin, I'm leaning towards maybe a mining theme of some sort, hence all the tunnels, logs and wicker brown objects. Also, it'd link back to the AMT scare maze, as we have seen stuff like this in the past (e....
