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!

I too occasionally have the "falling" sensation. I like jump and grab for something even though there is nothing to grab for. It's a weird experience. I have had dreams where i'm on rollercoasters (sad i know) and things go wrong and I wake up just as something is about to go wrong and ju...

Re: Sleep Paralysis

Yep! I suffered from Sleep Paralysis really badly about 3 years ago, althought I didn't see anything, I had the illusion of someone snoring heavily/pressing down across my throat, and I'd wake seeing noone but still feeling a presence there, its a very surreal experience and I'm glad its stopped!

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.

YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE! I am so pleased with our performance tonight! It wasn't world class by any means but we worked so hard to win every ball and deserved the win. Well done boys! :clap: We needed that win BADLY! Hopefully we can use this to push on now and try and get some decent results going!

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...
