Do we know if Thrope are any closer to getting a new hotel at all? The Shark concept has worked great but I feel a bigger hotel with entertainment would really improve the park as a whole.

Apart from the ground being broken, unfortunately we are no further.

As it is the year of the Walking Dead, could we see X removed after the season to welcome a new coaster replacing both it and Slammer (RMC)? This would make sense as the Walking Dead could be used to bring in revenue and guest numbers whilst being removed before the IP dies out, people get uninterested and before the Ride has serious technical issues. It’s just as X is failing and an RMC where X and Slammer currently reside would be absolutely magnificent.

Personally, I can't imagine Thorpe removing X especially after spending money to give it a Walking Dead theme.  Although it would be good to see a new ride in the place of Slammer.

I think X has many years left as WD, as Lucy explained above.

Personally, I'd like to see Old Town redeveloped as it is, well, old! :lol

The area still looks very run down however.

Yeah, it really does, especially with Loggers Leap being closed. If that was to return then it may bring the area back to life, however, if Thorpe Park decided it was no longer possible then I believe this would be a good area for their next coaster. The current rides within that area can easily be relocated elsewhere.
