Re: Galactica - General Discussion

If the VR goes completely from Galactica, I wouldn't be suprised. The only part of the VR content that was good was the lift hill, the rest of it seemed a blur and it has murdered Air's capacity. We have already seen the photo booth and four rows of VR removed, so I can't imagine the last three rows...

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

Wasteland Bash is in an area of the park with predominantly thrill rides so most traffic in FV is teens/adults wanting to go on the roller coasters not watch shows couple this with the fact it has no mention of it what so ever outside of Ripsaw's site it's not surprising there's little people watchi...

Re: Alton Towers 40th Anniversary in 2020

Towers doesn't need a parade, The entrance isn't big enough to accomedate guests + a parade without affecting traffic. However I could see some sort of mini celebration going on. But I'd imagine they'd want the focus to be the 2020 addition.

Re: Enchanted Village Expansion 2018 - 2021

People seem to forget Merlin are a business. Building more and more accommodation is part of their strategy to bring in more revenue, From a business prospective why spend £20mill plus on a new ride when you can spend £10mill on accommodation and bring in higher returns.  But it seems a bit silly th...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Personally I'd like to see Otters or Penguins somewhere but I'd also agree with Robert that it should be an addition as well as the supposed Gangsta Granny ride. But it sounds like it's not gonna be the only 2019 project if they're still deciding what to add now whereas we already know that a 2019 p...

Brave enough to face a year of fear? 

Get yourself a TH0RPE PARK  Annual Pass for JUST £49 and treat yourself to a year of unmissable events!

Meet you at the Safe Zone.




It's so subtle but it looks like it's official now.

Re: Project 2020

Even if this is to do with Thorpe it's not to do with Project 2020, Why bother starting the marketing campaign when there's not even planning permission submitted yet! Many people have said it's related to the SAW:Alive maze and it having a retheme/refresh based off the new Jigsaw film (Of which a s...

Merlin's Capex cycle, Much like other Theme Park Operators, have a new investment every year.  Merlin's Capex cycle makes Towers probably due a small investment for 2019, This'll probably something like a Sea Life expansion or Cbeebies Land attraction coupled with something like a new F&B outlet...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

If you smoke/vape outside designated smoking areas then you should be kicked out of Towers without a refund, in my opinion. Same goes for graffiti.

I dunno if you've heard of this ride but the last ride I went on was a wooden roller coaster called 'Wicker Man' at some park called 'Alton Towers'.

Wow, that's an early announcement for Merlin! 

Also it looks like it will be based off the Lego Monster Fighters sets as I recognise the Mummy and Frankenstein's monster from the set.

I rode Wicker Man today. I thought it was really really good. I managed to get to rides on Wicker Man, one around lunchtime and one around 5:30 and can I say how well this coaster warms up by the end of the day as my second ride on it was breathtaking! The preshow wipes Hex and DBGT's preshows to th...
