Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

I'm not at the park today but checking the app shows the following rides as 'Closed':

Colossus, I'm a Celeb, Rumba Rapids, Storm Surge, Slammer, Angry Birds 4D, Banana Ride, Wet Wet Wet and Zodiac.

Is this accurate? If so it seems Thorpe (like Alton) has some issues with reliability at the start of the season. I'm probably there next Monday or Tuesday so I'm hoping things will have improved!

Colossus is always having issues at the moment. IAC isn't due to open until Friday and even then it's only due to be open on selected dates which can be found either on the Thorpe Park website or in the relevant topic, Wet Wet Wet opens when the beach opens, Slammer is closed for reasons unknown and has been since the start of the season (although I personally think it's because of the birds nest on one of the legs) The others, I don't know.

IMAscore have said in a recent 'blog' on their website the following:

Before the production of the soundtracks for several theme areas begun, IMAscore created, in close collaboration with Thorpe Park’s creative team, a new audio brand for the park.


This could mean the area's such as Jungle and Old Town will each be receiving new soundtracks to correlate with the areas.

From browsing the app, it looks like Saw & Stealth have been closed almost if not permanently with Colossus open for a fraction of the time. I hope this changes because this is poor even though it puts B&M in a rather big spotlight
could Rumba get an extension with an enclosed section and drop?

Stealth was previously confirmed to be closed all day and Saw seemed to close yesterday for some reason or another.

Everything major has now opened, minus Stealth which isn't expected to be in operation for a little while.

Rocky Express, Samurai and IAC don't open until 11am.

I've been at Thorpe yesterday and today and both operations and reliability have been much better than the shambles at the weekend.

Colossus is still on one train and Stealth is closed but apart from that the park is running well.

Does anyone know what is actually wrong with Stealth? Only think I can think of is that it cold be having its launch cable replaced but surely that wouldn't take so long? :-k

The catch car was replaced at the end of last season during fright nights

I did a lift hill climb of The Swarm yesterday and asked if it was the catch car that was causing the downtime. We were told that it's not the catch car but a valve of some sort that needs replacing but I'm not sure how much truth there was in that.

Here is a photo I took from the top of The Swarm. It looks to me like there is something over the area where the catch car normally sits that could be used to lower a new one in? There's also something on the floor next to the air gates which looks like it could actually be a catch car?

Really bizarre thing happened with Stealth today. Around 3:30, the queue times boards started announcing it was open and on 80 minutes. Upon running over, we saw a queue coming right out the front and up to the baggage hold, with no one in the air gates. At least one test car was sent successfully. Everyone was then ordered out of the queue, the ride re-closed and the "Stealth will be closed all day" message continued to play on the boards.

I Recently just purchased an annual pass for Thorpe as they're on sale at the moment, does anyone know how busy it is during the weekdays when the kids are at school, as I'm only at college 2-3 times a week so I'm gonna start going regularly, just wanted an idea of how long the que times would be (went over the holidays and it was VERY busy), thanks in advance!

You'll probably only find Stealth and Colossus get large queues, and even then it'll be around 30 minutes. :)
