Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Hmm disagree - the grey just fades in to the background. Green would have made it stand out against the other coasters better.

Re: X:\ No Way Out

I find it puzzling how there is a lengthy queue line leading to the station platform which could be used instead of taking up pathway outside. If it is a fire safety issue, then surely this is the time to sort it out? I wonder if they will get the air conditioning working after all these years?

Re: Events Calendar 2018

We are extending the lineup for 2018 with the addition of an event at Chessington which will be great to return to. We'll be hosting an official meet up on opening day at Alton Towers for SW8 - there will be no exclusives, however we are working on this for summer. I know a few of you were disappoin...

Re: X:\ No Way Out

Of course we need to be optimistic and hopefully some nice theming will be put inside that immerses you in to the world of Walking Dead.. However, once again Merlin will probably spray dark paint all over it to make it 'dilapidated', stick a shipping container in and do a half arsed job on theming a...

Re: Six Flags Dubai

Google have updated the maps for Dubai Parks & Resorts which now clearly show Six Flags Dubai very much under construction. Exciting to see.

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Lewis made a valid point earlier - an odd move to tell people they can’t come to your parks, after seeing a decline in visitation this year..

It's not like the parks are ALL opening huge attractions where visitor numbers are forecast to be huge.

Yeah, we almost reported these in the article as anti-rollbacks but quickly realised they were also being installed in places where it would make no logical sense.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hi all, I wonder if anyone can advise if it’s possible to visit the Towers complex without having to pay for access to the whole park (out of season maybe)? I’m currently building a model of the house with Lego, so would be good to get in the palaces not normally open to the public, so I ca...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Will be interesting to see what exactly is in the show section, and how fast the train will go through it.

If it is dark ride pace, then having three trains makes absolute sense.

Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

Thorpe Park have posted a fun video to wrap up the 2017 season, along with a cryptic message "We'll meet you at the safe zone in 2018.."

What do you think this could mean?

They have also uploaded a coming soon for 2018 page.
