Re: Which rides do you have a love/hate relationship with?

The Monorails for me
I love them because of there characters and adds the experince to entering alton towers but I hate it when the audio is not working or when I get the same train again!

Re: Merlin Standard Annual Pass: Free Parking to end in 2011

What a Joke and what a crime the free parking is just as good as the theme parks on the pass! So to lose it, well its a joke and I hope Merlin suffer for this error! and quickly fix the problem!
Luckily I am safe this year for free parking because we renewed in november!

I just think the chessington choc shop is really nice and why could they not do a wide range from nestle to lindor!

Re: The Ultimate Fireworks: 5-7 November 2010

you would be looking at about £100-£200 thousand for the london fireworks! So I think it would be about that considering london has more fireworks but nowhere near as long as alton!

Re: Ferrari World Abu Dhabi

I think they have made something that marks a huge symbol of ferrari world! although it does look tiny compared to the rest of the theme park! Shame that its the same layout as rita (just bigger) but at least they made an effort unlike the ring racer in germany!

Re: Chessington World Of Adventures: Future Discussion

The Future of Chessigton in my eyes looks great! but, chessington is not a park I wish to visit more than once or twice in a year I dont know why it just does not have an appeal to me! Dont get me wrong I love the zoo and the family friendly rides but... it needs something extra to make it a re visi...

Re: The Ultimate Fireworks: 5-7 November 2010

Congrats to alton towers! What a firework spectacular, considering they can only do 3 shows a year they really put there heart and soul into it! The begining was an outstanding start with the th13teen countdown! People slack of the songs but if you think about it, it went through the 3 decades of so...

Re: The Ultimate Fireworks: 5-7 November 2010

It good that Alton are starting the fireworks early rather than late! More chances to ride in the dark and im guessing most people will leave after them! This will also help congestion at the end of the night considering the pink concert went a bit pear shaped!

Re: What should Enterprise and/or Submission be replaced with?

A sky swat or S&S swing I personally think but as they are already at thorpe park would never ever happen! But definatly something similar to them!

I hope this really is the ultimate in fireworks displays because I missed scarefest for this :)

Re: Thorpe Park: Fright Nights 2009/2010

Thorpe park would have been better off spreading the disease around the park and hiring some dirty rusty trucks with a tone of smoke, With a few actors near by rather then squashing it in such a small area! I must say the mazes this year were very good in my opinion and the actors used there space w...

Re: MAP Advice for South East Attractions

If all else fails you can enter in any of the turnstiles so you dont have to worry.
The dungeons can be confusing sometimes being so many people but just ask what is the annual pass queue/fastrack queue and you will be fine!
