Re: Fright Nights

Went to the preview night yesterday and wowza was it disappointing. Saw and Platform 15 were the clear highlights, with the actors giving it their all. Blair Witch has massively improved this year, with a little pre-maze scene and some cooler set pieces (like tents floating in the trees etc.). It wa...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Alton appear to be teasing the location of Project 42 (which is pretty much common knowledge anyway).

Hopefully this means we'll get some more concrete info on the maze in the coming days.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - The Future

I have recently participated in an engineering Jack Petchy run challenge sponsored by Thorpe Park. I haven't won but whoever wins the finals will help Merlin Magic Making theme the new attraction near Old Town, or in it, possibly on the Logger’s Leap site. Don't wanna sound like a downer, but have ...

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

Went to Thorpe yesterday and the ride was shut pretty much all day. Apparently they've been having a lot of issues with animations on the screens hence the extensive downtime in the past few days. Slightly annoying considering I've been twice now and both times it's been shut all day :/

Re: Forbidden Valley Future

Excuse the picture quality but this is interesting. New show maybe? Mr Sanbrooke said it looked like some sort of rehearsal was going on.

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

It sounds pessimistic, but I have a feeling that Towers are just keeping these 'under refurbishment' attractions on their website to bump up their ride count :/

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Actual details on the preshow and some odd pictures of the ride here and there. I feel like this ride's upkeep is really gonna be make or break with all these effects.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Leaks left right and centre on some other forums, I'm not sure how TT feels about staff reviews but if what's been said is true, then wow. The pre-show alone sounds amazing, I feel like we've got something special here.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Yeah I'll keep them down! :D  Back on topic, does anyone else find it weird that we're yet to see footage of the effects in action? I can't help but feel it's a matter of Towers keeping it a secret because they have some tricks up their sleeves.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Oh wow, is it really 1.94 on all rides? I'm 2.1M and I've been going on all except Th13teen for years. That's some devastating news damn.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

As a tall person, I do wonder if the ride will have an upper height limit (like Th13teen) because of the head choppers etc.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

If anything I'm hoping that an effects-based 'world's first' will give them an obligation to keep them going for at least a little longer than most Merlin effects.
