Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

No clue what's going on with it. Has anyone been to the park recently and has seen what's going on? At least Quantum is back up and running.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Yes you can, we stayed in Splash Landings. We got there a bit late on the first day and just missed ERT. But we especially enjoyed it on day 2. I recommend doing Spinball Whizzer. We rode it 3 times during ERT due to everyone heading to Wicker Man!

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

I actually am, in some way, hopeful that Loggers Leap re-opens in the future as the work that’s been done on Tiger Rock is rather spectacular. There may be a lot more to recover but surely it would be worth it? With a new potential re-theme and with an addition of a ride in Slammer’s (RIP) location...

Re: What did you ride on your first visit?

My first visit was in 2011/2012. Either 2012 or both. I remember going on Twirling Toadstool and the Mine Train but I was scared to go on Th13teen. Sadly I wimped out but in 2013 I had my first ride, I loved it so much and became my favourite ride. (But not anymore) Luckily enough for me, it was Fri...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

I loved Walliams books when I was younger. This would be the perfect IP for Cloud Cuckoo Land. I could see CATCF as the gangster granny ride actually, it just works. I really hope this happens... Please Towers, please!

Yes it is on ERT :)

Spinball whizzer is also on the ERT lineup.. I recommend you go there instead, on the 7th April we got on it 3 times in Early Ride Time because there was no queue. We had a lot of fun.

Re: The Future Of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory; The Ride

I don't really know how much truth is in this, but I have heard it mentioned on other forums that there may be work going on in the CATCF building to remove the theme since the IP deal ran out, so they can reopen the ride. As I say though, I wouldn't know wether that is really true or not. It could...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Neither Saturday. As soon as the train arrived back in the station, they would close the restrains on row 2 again. As well as that, there was a bin blocking the row 2 air gates.

Mine was TH13TEEN at Alton last Saturday. Had a great two days there :) My last ride at Thorpe Park 3 weeks ago was Nemesis Inferno.
