Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Am i the only one thinking that this map makes the park look empty? It looks like its lacking any other rides other than the coasters. It could just be the colours they have used as they seem to merge into the background.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - Quick Questions

I think with Stealth is its a bit of a mix. The launch feels more forceful at the back, so it kind of feels like your being dragged along and I totally agree with what Chris says about the top hat.

Re: Overcoming fears: Tamest and most thrilling seat for each coaster

I would say there are two ways of doing it. Either just brave it and hope that it doesn't scar you for life, or start with the weaker coasters first and then each visit build up slowly. If you are trying to conquer your fear at Alton Towers than I would suggest the following: Start with Octonauts. A...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - Quick Questions

Saw: Doesn't exist :sus: Get out. Saw: 2nd dispatched train front row in the middle is (in my opinion) the best way to experience the full ride. I have to agree with Jack on this. It really is the best way to fully experience everything this coaster has to offer :)  Colossus you really do need to b...

I love the idea but there is part of 1 of the pictures I can’t take seriously. They are looking confused at a rock. I mean, it’s a rock!

Re: The Swarm

I bloody love this coaster so so so so much! Its just a big barrel of joy for me and I can't wait to get back on it. That dive drop is just such a nice feeling. It gives me a warm feeling inside. Sad I know, but this coaster is just fun to me and I adore it!

Re: Stealth

I'm still waiting on this to be rethemed to Drag Race :lol But seriously, I adore Stealth. I used to hate the launch, but the more i've ridden it the more I have started to enjoy the ride. I have ridden in practically every seat and the back is by far the better place to sit on it. Don't get me wron...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

I actually like the idea of 3/4 of these. Fright Nights I’m hoping has a complete overhaul but that’s for a different topic. Jungle Escape and Bouncezilla just sounds fun and they could just be a laugh to do with your mates. Whilst it’s not the most exciting thing to happen, it’s something different...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

This is a wild shot in the dark, but with the first infinite logo relating to gaming, it got me thinking. Whats something that's game related but can work in a jungle theme and the only thing that comes to mind other than video games is a themed escape room. But I have just remembered Containment ex...

Re: Project 2020

I'm not entirely sure of the technicalities but if a coaster is listed on a previously approved LTDP, isn't it easier and faster to get planning permission once the time comes to build it? that might suggest planning permission may be later than expected. I also seem to remember them getting some k...

But isn't the Hex story based on legend not fact? Dungeon shows are based on fact and the actual history.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I have started to think what shows we will see inside the Dungeon. I think there will of course be The Torturer, The Plague Doctor and The Judge as they seem to be in every Dungeon attraction. I will be surprised if those don't appear in the attraction. What other shows do you think there will be?
