Re: SP Southern Screamer - 9th June 2018 - Discussion

We have had a few queries and concerns regarding the price increase. Since 2014, the price of the summer / spring Thorpe Park events has been around the £17 mark - so we have been lucky not to experience any price increases since then. This event took a long time to plan - and one of the sticking po...

Re: Merlin General Discussion

The whole pay on exit set up is a nightmare, and always has been. At Disney and Universal, you pay on entry via cash or card, and receive a friendly welcome. At Merlin parks, you enjoy your day, probably forget that you have to buy a car park token, and / or just get generally pissed off at having t...

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

More of a general SeaWorld Parks topic - but good news for the parks having a stronger than expected last quarter.

Take that, PETA.

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

Yes, same.

The amount of information in the update shows that LRCH have been very busy. Not that it is too relevant at the planning stage, but they should really keep the general public up to date a bit more to encourage consistent support for the project.

Most people have given up hope!

That, and the fact it is on the side of a hill, very visible in both sight and noise to the town below.

Re: Cedar Point

This topic is getting silly. Little information is known about the exact details of the incident, and the amount of speculation floating around is ridiculous. If you read the replies of the Twitter user above, you can see he is a waste of space. The incident has nothing to do with the Smiler - diffe...

Re: Black Buccaneer

Yes, the two supports that connect the boat to the top pivot have been replaced.

Tussauds were quite clever in making some rides seem larger than they are - Rameses is another example.

Re: Land of the Tiger - New for 2018

Mack have been in and commisioned the ride to meet current standards. I wasn't aware that anything needed fixing prior. Jared - we say 'almost' as there were still a few days to the press day on Saturday (when the photo was posted) and there still could be snagging or amendments to be made. We had M...

Re: General Forum Discussion

We have updated the avatars in the local gallery featuring a selection of nice photos which are now 150x150 pixels wide.

If you use an existing local avatar already, please do select it again in the avatar section in your profile settings, which will then make it appear full size.

Yes, it baffles me why both companies think that the ride will sit happily operating in two very busy parks.

That fantastic Twitter account is just a testament of exactly how much construction is going on at the WDW Resort - it's incredible.
