Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I experienced travellers’ day at Thorpe Park Fright Nights this year. What a load of trouble... rides were closing for Guest Action throughout the day. I was talking to several staff all through the day, they said it was a day of nightmares. Other than some people trying to block us getting to the e...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Thank God! I'm very very pleased to hear the rapids will be a non-seasonal attraction again, and I can get some earlier rides on good old Nemmy! (As well as Galactica and The Blade of course!)

Thank you Alton!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I just hope we get a backtrack from Alton due to the publics response. I’m hoping the Forbidden Valley opening time is around 10:30 and Congo River Rapids has a longer operating schedule, into April. It’s not good to have one of your only water rides not running for half of the year :(

SAW Alive?  :-k


Thorpe Park have confirmed on Twitter that SAW Alive will be open for the 6 week summer holidays.

I presume we may see The Walking Dead - Living Nightmare operate under a similar schedule.

That's great news actually. Pleased about Thorpe's opening times this year :)

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I really hope a meeting is held about the issue tomorrow. There’s been around 380 Facebook complaints from what I’ve seen... Seems a lot of people are annoyed, I don’t blame them. I just hope a reversal happens. We would be saved! (Mostly)

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I doubt they’d stay the same now due to the colossal backlash from the GP. I just hope the forbidden valley opening time is moved back and also the Congo river rapids to have increased operating days in the year. :? I hope...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Not happy about this either.  Congo being seasonal and forbidden valley opening at 11:30!! That means I won't be able to go on the river rapids in April :@ Galactica, Nemesis and The Blade will be open, on 4pm days, for 4 and 1/2 hours!That's crazy... I do hope Alton make some changes... we did last...

Re: X:\ No Way Out

I’m now getting excited for this 2018 development! X has always had a charm to me and I hope now they are giving it some attention it can become a great attraction. Currently, it isn’t the best... My dad says it’s so bad he won’t go on it! I disagree, but I do hope he’ll change his mind next year!

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

The dates seem rather good this year. It's great to see the return of the 10-10 days and them even adding an extra one for the final opening dates is brill! Can't wait for the park for reopen. I wonder how X's refurbishment will look? I do hope it's good!

Hi! I've made a few posts so I think it is time to say hello! My name is Joel and I adore theme parks, especially Alton Towers and Thorpe Park. My favourite ride is Nemesis. (Of course!) I love these forums already and can't wait to speak to you all.

Re: X:\ No Way Out

I’m personally really excited about it! No matter what it is or isn’t themed too I am expecting a decent amount of theming with this which to me, puts it leagues above the metal laser box we have now! 2018 is going to be an awesome year for UK parks! Actually, me too! I think X would benefit greatl...
