Re: Thorpe Park: Fright Nights 2009/2010

Not sure if anyone has seen this, but Thorpe Park have made a video/trailer for fright nights this year. Link: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=106998922695602 I have to say, this is actually a good video by Thorpe, which is a rare thing for me to say. Definitely worth seeing if you're goi...

Re: Scarefest: 16-31 October 2010

Its only a rumour so far that the new maze will be on park though, isn't it? If I was a betting man, I'd say the Circus Maze will be a hotel maze and will be put where the field used to be.

Re: Disneyland Paris suicide wave

Disney have always had terrible reputation for the way they treat their staff and of course they would never admit to it but their working terms are meant to be disgraceful for a organisation their size.

Re: Guess the year

It was a roasting hot July day. I had been for a spin on ripsaw to cool off, passed by the Haunted House, and headed over to the X-Sector, through Merrie England, and paused for a moment to see the iconic swans in the foreground of the towers. *got cheap thrills* moved on. Got to x-sector and went ...

Would it be that scary considering you can't see whats coming ahead really, I know the fear of the unknown does add a special element to things but I can't see it being any more intense on Nemmy going backwards!

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Viral Marketing/Promotional Discussion

I don't think there is a way to pay an extra £1 to be honest! That's not true anyone who wishes to be insured on 13 can gladly give me £1 and in exchange I will give them a magic bean* that will act as their insurance policy! :P *Insurance is nul and void should you manage to lose your magic bean.

Re: Rita - What will you miss?

I'll miss the radio tbh! As nasty as the queue line is, the radio at least made up for it. I wonder what the new audio will be like? I hope its some dark sinister music or the sounds of a wraith screaming just before RITA takes off. And as for the theming on RITA I will miss the "Go, Go, Go&qu...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

I feel that the Premium Pass will do better at Thorpe and Chessington, where people are more likely to use the London attractions more frequently. Also, the sales will pick up in (and the lead up to) August when people are visiting the London attractions. For example: A guest goes to Madame Tussaud...

Re: SW6 Theme Discussion

Also, I'd like to mention this, I noticed on the back of the Scarefest map, on the advert for SW6 It doesn't actually say "Surrender"... So yeah, I doubt it'll be called that! But it says "Surrender" on the actual map part of it. I really wouldn't rule out "Surrender" ...

As reported by Towers Nerd Live, there are actors promoting SW6. There are three of them currently wondering around Ug Land.
