After this Wednesday, 4 trips this season. The magic's still there for me, only thing that really ruins it for me is the length of the queues sometimes. Up until 2004 I hardly ever went, then I turned into an adrenalin junkie and now I'm an addict. Shame my parents have split up so it'll be hard to ...

The first one looks like it was taken in Towers St. before the frog fountains came and there were little rockerys where the grass mounds are now. A bit like in this photo.

Birthday trip- 19/08/06

It's a bit late, but here's my trip report from Saturday. We got on the park by about 9:45, paid with some vouchers on the back of some used tickets from earlier trips and got in. We headed straight for FV via the shortcut behind The Flume and got on Nemmy with hardly any queue. The DJ wasn't there ...

Sounds like you had a good day, the staff sound like they do a great job and it looks like you got a good selection of rides done. I'm going tomorrow for my first trip as well, hopefully it'll be quiet, we'll get a good ride count and Stealth is hopefully only having a little bit of downtime ATM so...

I've convinced Dad as much as I can and it sounds promising. He isn't that organized so to make sure we get some hotel rooms (if we stay the night), has anyone got any hotels they could recommend? Also, when do the fireworks usually start? If it's fairly early like 6:00 then we could leave the park...

Good work there brokenhome, it's got a few problems here and there like the odd typo and some of the text going off to a separate line when it should be one word but apart from that, great work. I'm not that keen on the music either, now and then it doesn't really sound like ITHOTMK at all but blam...

I'll be coming, I can't say I'll be staying in the same hotel as all of you but I'll still be making the meetups. I dont think I'll be visiting both Thorpe and Chessie due to money, especially if I'm off to Alton in the same week (no annual pass.) So I'll probably have to settle with the meet at Tho...

I had a chat with my parents about this earlier and they seemed willing to swap the dates from my Birthday (19th) to these two days. I can't say I'll be there for both park trips but I should be staying overnight if I can make it. *crosses fingers* So long as Dad squeezes in a few rides on the days ...

I don't fully understand the whole 'fluids issue', was it every kind of fluid on the park or just water? Everytime I went for a re-fill of coke for my canteen there seemed to be no problem at all with coke and fluids for all other customers served. . . Unless it was only at the odd few shops/kiosks?

I'm going on the 3rd August hopefully, right in the middle of the event. on it's own website, it says you can get tickets for £18 but it does't really say if it means on the day or only from pre-booking on the website. Can anyone clear that up for me? I think it's a fantastic offer personally for so...

Actually 27th is quite a good day for me and seeing as it's a weekday I have a fair chance of making it so if I move my planned trip from 3rd August to that day, it's pretty much a definite I can make it :D I'll have to check with everyone first, see if it's ok *crosses fingers*

I think you're making a few too many similar polls at once, mate. :) Anyway, I chose 'No, cheaper option' as IMO, £7 is a bit poor for four rides, two of which rarely get 40 minute queues or more nowadays anyway. (Well, while I've been there.) Plus an extra £3 for a ride on Rita is a complete ripoff...

I think the 2nd floor idea could work well, the warehouse's height would probably have to be extended though. It could work and even boost the ride's popularity again for a short while plus it could give more extension to the story and could make it easier to fit in a decent ending for the story. I ...

I didn't get the chance to go on it either, it was always because it didn't interest me, I was too young and short, or the queues were too big. I can't feel much for it really because of that but I do wish I had gone on it now, judging from other people's opinions, it sounded like a fantastic ride. ...
