Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Not to shabby. Hopefully there will be reasons to want to stay at the park later during the summer and not just a redo of the tacky Love Island Lates

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

I've never experienced actual Galactica. The idea of wearing VR on this coaster sort of ruins the coaster for me. Plus, given DBGT and how off their headsets are, I'd rather not risk it setting of my motion sickness. I do like the idea of Galactica, but it was a complete waste of money. They should ...

WE NEED PLANS!!! Hopefully that will make Thorpe submit them :lol

But yeah, social media replies aren't always the most accurate thing to rely on. They have a habit of trolling. But You never know. Could be true, but take it with a pinch of salt.

Re: SW9

Launch coasters aren't gimmicks in any way. In practical terms, they are perfectly suited to a park like Alton Towers which cannot have a high lift hill in most areas. We need a thrill ride for SW9, it has been nearly 6 years since the last one. An Intamin blitz in Forbidden Valley would do the job...

Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

Morgan raises some very valid points, I won't deny it. When you actually sit and think about it, it has many flaws. The outdoor track is a bit dull and the queue line is a bit long and a bit boring, and the bag hold now holds up operations even more, but there is something about this coaster that is...

Re: SW9

I hope they avoid the launch coaster route. Yes, I can see the argument for it, especially if you take Rita existing out of the equation, but I think it would be cool if the park kept with the simple idea, like Wicker Man. By simple I mean old school. Wicker Man was such a hit for the park that it w...

Re: Rita - General Discussion

I like Rita and all her flaws. It certainly isn't the best coaster on park, of the most thrilling, or the smoothest, but I just find it fun. I always try to ride it whenever I visit the park as I enjoy it.

Re: I'm a Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here

GUTTED

I absolutely adore this attraction because it’s so camp and cheesy and, well, a little bit crap. If they are going to put something in its place I have two requests:

A. Make sure it fits with The Jungle theme of the area that the space it is in!

B. Don’t put Vulcan Peak in!

Hey everyone. I thought I would give you some information. I know I said there would be 10 rounds, but due to the fact I got hit quite hard by a cold, i've only been able to write 8 rounds. So there will now be 8 rounds over 2 days. And as i'm feeling nice, I thought I would share you the rounds tha...

Re: The Next Themed Area/Area Refurb

CCL is the most likely to next undergo work. Its been a while since it received any real love, so it would be nice to see the area get a revamp. But after that, I feel, much to my hatred of saying this, will be Katanga Canyon. I adore the area to bits, but its look old and needs so new life brought ...

Such a great read. You don’t really realise how much happens in a year until you look back at it. Let’s hope the park continues this positive journey it’s been on this year!

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - The Future

I did eat there once and was disappointed by the food. I sort of like the area as it is as it has a nice transition from Jungle to Old Town, but I can see them using the space to add more games stalls or an arcade. A new ride would be awesome though.
