Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

Honestly, I rode it about 11 times yesterday over and over again and I have a few thoughts... It's gotten to a point where its quite sad to see what was once a brilliant ride turn into what it is today. Most major effects were broken (including the trommel tunnel). Don't get me wrong, I enjoy it but...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Quick question,
Do you think it'll be busy on Monday (19th) as it is term time but I have just realised all the year 11's have just broken up. Thanks!

Re: Scarefest

Question for those who have stayed over at the hotel this year during Scarefest - do you get any free fast tracks? Last year they gave us them when we returned to the accommodation after our day on the park so they were useless as we were only doing the one day! Yes, you get a free fast track until...

Can anybody confirm if Altonville Mine Tours has any crawling sections?

It's not crawling as such but there is a small section in which you do have to duck and mind your head.

I wasn't disappointed it wasn't like Carnival of Screams, I was disappointed it wasn't very scary/ the actors weren't very... well, I hate to say it, but good.

Is it just me or are there no actual clowns in Freak Show? If so that's a little dissapointing.


I did walk through a few times and I agree. To be completely honest it was slightly disappointing. I was expecting something not too dissimilar to Carnival of Screams.

Re: Scarefest

Scarefest Days- Friday 7th October- We arrived early Friday morning to Splash Landings. It was good as per usual and I enjoyed it. We got into to the park at around 11am and to my surprise it was empty! Even Th13teen and Rita were walk ons at midday! Galactica was amazing. I loved it so much and I p...

Re: Bubbleworks 2017 refurbishment

Whats the rumour about a Gruffalo IP? I've been hearing it around and I'm not quite sure whether I could come to terms with Bubbleworks becoming a Gruffalo ride.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Went on it today. Fantastic. The only thing I would say is The green gas part was boring. We were there for what seemed like forever! Luckily we didn't wait long. Maybe 10-20 minutes? It showed 120 minutes all day and it filled up the entire queue so yeah. So when the queue line is full, the queue ...

There is rumoured to be some form of announcement on Friday (to do with opening) - however it should be noted the source is very weak.

But Orange is The New Black Season 4 gets released. I cant decide which one to pay attention to :-k
