Re: Project Zer0 - Specu1ation

Well I mean looking up project, zero, 0, 1 or binary on the Thorpe park website doesn't bring up anything mysterious. But I guess that would've been to easy. Unless you wanna count the 0 results for binary... :lol

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

I think the thing we are most likely to see are the decorations Jack was talking about and some new merchandise celebrating every ride that has been at Alton - probably mainly pins.

I still find Oblivion terrifying still, it's the only ride that never fails to have me screaming.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

The queue line videos are really smart and I don't think they get the credit they deserve. Last time I was on the Smiler, I noticed one of them would count up every loop and have a corresponding image to represent the name of the type of inversion. I thought it looked stylistically awesome and was r...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Yeah I noticed that too. They seem to be using the Slammer queue or something because the Living Nightmare Sign seemed to be (to me at least) over the old Slammer one and leading to its queue. How could they even do that? Is it that they've edited the old queue line?

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

I did Apocalypse Weekend today as well so don't worry about people not doing it. Also spotted a few doing it around the park. It takes about 10/15 mins to complete but is fun. To me, this looks as if they're trying it out cheaply to see how it works, and then if people do it they might try a more co...

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

Ok so I was on swarm and there was about 5 people, all dressed like Toy Story characters. Just as swarm was nearing the top of the first hill, someone yelled “Andy’s coming!”

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

When I visited Monday, I think some of the fog effects weren't working, but I'm not sure if I just me not understanding the ride. 

Spoiler: show
We had so few fog machines go off in the final corridor, but I don't know if that's how it's supposed to be?

Where can you enter the Towers? The only entrance I knew was locked when I tried last time.

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

I might be alone on this but I think Alton Towers has a large collection of recognisable characters to use. There’s the ministry of joy and all it’s ‘colourful’ characters, the phalanx and the nemesis creature, galactica and the astronauts, Thirteen and it’s wraiths, wicker man and the beoren and th...

Re: Project Zer0 - Specu1ation

Uhhh am I the only one seeing that the original video has been taken down? No, It shows the video doesn’t exist for me. Wonder if Thorpe contacted whoever did it and asked for the video to be removed, or they are tricking us I think thorpe probably got it removed, I mean I think they were trolling ...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

I thought this was so weird but today, I saw at a traveling fair a Nemesis simulator ride... It was pixelated but it showed Nemesis pre Air (I think - again pretty pixelated) but I thought it was hilarious and so strange that this exists.

I've seen Pringles with Wicker Man pics on them at Tesco I think, but they were part of the 2 for 1 special - they also had Thorpe Park's logo on them.
