I like it how Thorpe is. It is small and compact which means for families with small/young children, there are not too many places their children can get lost in. The theming works great with the small area of which Thorpe have actually used. My mum likes it because there is not alot of walking to do to access the rides (she has a bad knee).
I think Thorpe have done exceedingly well considering it's size and the amount of flats and coasters they have managed to fit in there. Colossus takes up alot of room and it's great how they have built it to sail over the paths. NI, it's terrific how they have made the track so close together which i feel adds to the thrill. Stealth, unfortunately they had to remove a favourite but still, they have room still in Amity Cove now for another ride. We may see Flying Fish again :D!
Thorpe is not too small. Alton Towers is 500 acres, this has it's pros and cons and TP is very small (of the land they have used) which also has pros and cons.
At the moment, Thorpe is fine. Anyway, they will start filling in the lake sometime in the next year to make some room for a new coaster in 2008 :D.
