Re: The Swarm

Thorpe's Instagram Story is saying that The Swarm is also getting a new chain.

Given the noises and apparent breakage of it at the end of last season, it's not so surprising.

Standard Season Passes are valid from the date of issue until 3rd November 2019 (excludes Fridays, Saturday and Sundays in Aug...

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

Video disappears within half an hour of normal office hours starting on Monday, and doesn't appear to have ever been advertised on the parks social media channels. I'm thinking it wasn't meant to have been released. Maybe uploaded to share between teams and someone pressed the wrong button? It gave ...

Re: Traveling in your own

Hello! I've done a lot of solo trips in the last year, starting with the UK parks most weekends, then venturing to Phantasialand and finally Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld at the end of the year. It can be daunting to start with and occasionally feel a bit odd, but I've had an incredib...

Re: SW9

A launch coaster makes the most sense given Alton's restrictions. Perhaps there's a gimmick side of things in terms of it being the current fashion for roller coasters. However, it allows a pretty decent level of freedom to control the rides flow that gravity based rides lack. If they went for a lau...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

Well it looks as though Alton might be attempting to make it fit the environment. Unlike Thorpe's dumping of random ride in one of the parks few consistently themed areas. :lol But it makes me wonder, is Frog Hopper drop tower 1 and Thorpe's Lumber Jump, tower 2? Seems unlikely Alton would keep Frog...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

So it'll be the fourth season for Ghost Train. Will there be any more adjustments this year? Or has the funding pot finally been cut for this attraction? Will reliability finally be figured out? https://i.imgur.com/Kq7bKkh.jpg It would be great to see the reliability worked out. It amazes me how the...

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

Maybe it's a trailer for things to come?

As for new things, I think the only thing that has been mentioned is the final tunnel as a possible development area. I'm guessing the work mentioned here was maintenance.

Re: Project 2020

During part 6 of Thorpe's winter updates they seem to have covered up the exact area being discussed at the moment (all of old town, IAC and Sticky sisters) Could this mean that we could get a teaser on the map like SW8 or Minds Wanted? (I would send image but I don't know how XD) https://twitter.c...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Some interesting looking symbols have been added to this year's map, shown in the Winter Update 6 video. https://i.imgur.com/8nqMVnp.jpg https://i.imgur.com/kB2rxHn.jpg Plus most of Old Town and The Jungle is covered, bar this brief glimpse. https://i.imgur.com/PhjujnM.jpg

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Doesn't disappoint. :)

Would be awesome to get an evening hotel ERT on it, as a hotel perk for the non-CBeebies Land focused guests.

Re: SW9

My thoughts are that the chance of a water ride being added back to the lineup is pretty slim. Could you imagine opening and press weekend? Please come and ride our new ride, in the snow/wind/rain.

Re: Project 2020

Well Sticky Sisters has also seemingly gone. It would appear there's a fair amount of stuff gone in this area, with the only new things added being extremely temporary looking.

Last minute - but could Dom be given coloured text privileges in the SB for these? It would make tracking the questions easier when there's a lot of spammed responses covering all possibilities thoughtful responses from participants. :)

Well, with all the work they did to the building for Vulcan Peak of Disappointment , did we really expect them to revert it all back for I'm a Celebrity usage? :sus: A shame in terms of another capacity loss. When open, it generally always had a full queue. Unlike Living Nightmare Extreme, which on ...
