The queue only equires for 30 minutes, unless you were queueing all the way down to Action Park


We joined the queline at the Ride operator's lunch break and then they wouldn't fill all of the carriages up

Well that ride operator got me a detention with my Head of Year for being late to the Bus. I personally think that it was late and perhaps he just couldn't be bothered to do it again. Funny thing is my friend who came with us was served by him on nearly 1/3 of all of the rides we went on. What a la...

Thorpe Park trying to become a Thrill Park

After a lot of thinking I had a thought is it me or is Thorpe Park becoming the Thrill Park of Taussands triplets? I think this as the rides have become alot more well thrilling. Chessington recently became a family park with the rides becoming tamer and they had the Eclispe Ferris Wheel for 2005 w...

My overall point would be to perhaps introduce a flat rides section perhaps in an ideal world in either X sector by removing Submission and putting rides similar to either Rush or slammer or a world's first with exceedingly good throughput take Rita for example the through put is astonishing and exc...

I dont think Jpecool is talking about a complete drenching! I couldn't agree more one thing though Alton ttowers' water rides do not get you soaked. All in all I think that we need more water rides as they have to make up that Blade is a water ride on the official website. So all I say is welll don...
