Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Sorry for the double post but Rumba Rapids has been taken off the app! Does that mean it won’t be open next season?

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

It looks like Rush didn’t make it to the end of the season for the 2nd year in a row. Hopefully this doesn’t affect it in any way because it’s been relatively reliable this season!

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Well Vortex is still closed then, looks like it’ll probably be another long term closure waiting for a part rather than something gone mechanically wrong.

Saturday edit - Ignore my last message, Vortex has today reopened!

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Great to hear your trip report thanks for that! Zombie Hunt sounds amazing so I’ll be sure to check that out. I’m going to TP next week and was slightly concerned to see that Vortex was closed all day today again, when I went earlier this year it was also closed (like it has been lots this year) did...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Does anyone know whether Vortex reopened today? The app said it did but then it said that it shut later on again and still says it’s closed. They may have just been testing it for when it eventually does reopen.

Samurai seems to have been down the last few days. Anyone know what’s up with it?

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

OK Thanks. I presume that’s for Thursdays as well. That’s annoying. I’d planned a Thursday in August a few months ago as I just saw a 10pm close and thought it would be a nice day and I have no interest in Love Island whatsoever.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Would this be available for annual pass holders or would we have to pay extra for that?

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Not sure if this is recent or not, but Vortex is no longer on the queue times section of the Thorpe Park app. Not sure if this is just because it’s currently closed but Quantum wasn’t taken off the app when it was closed for a long period earlier this year.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Any news on what’s happening with Vortex? I’m going in a few weeks and I was wondering if any work is going on with It?

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

That’s a bit weird. Not really sure why they would have done that but anyway.
Rocky Express has reopened again but Vortex and Rush are both still closed.
Also, does anyone know if both the swings are working on Rush again, and if they re does one of them still go higher than the other one?

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I know it’s not ideal, but it’s not as bad as a couple of people are making out. It’s a brand new ride, a brand new coaster system for Towers. It’s only been open a couple of months, of course there’s going to be some problems with it. If it’s still like this in the summer, then maybe some discussio...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Still Quantum is closed. Anyone know what’s wrong with it? Is it waiting for a part of something worse?
Rocky Express has also been down for about a week as well which means that Old Town currently just has two old, small rides in that whole area working.

Ride Downtime

Downtime:

So far this season, Quantum has been closed all season, presumably waiting for a new part. Also, Rush has been closed lots and seems to have been closed most of today and The Walking Dead seems to have had quite a bit of downtime as well!

Rita and The Smiler are both now down. Alton Towers are really having a horrific day operations wise.

These are all looking very nice, thanks for these.
Does anyone know what’s up with Quantum or when it might open for the season?

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Thorpe have now confirmed on their Twitter page that Rush will be closed for the remainder of the season due to maintenance.
