Re: Vampire

I'm sure the music will appear online at some point in the next few days. Given it was only annual pass day yesterday, the vloggers and people who do that probably haven't had a chance to upload it yet. As for Vampire, what they have done is nice. The new bits of small theming in the queue line are ...

Re: Tomb Blaster

Tomb Blaster has received a lot fo work over closed season. It now has new audio as well as a new storyline. The effects and animatronics inside look to have had a lot of work over closed season with them all seeming to work and it feels like a new ride, i won't lie.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

It could end up coming down to the lawyers. If you close one ride stating concerns about the spread of Cornavirus but then someone catches it on a trip to the park, can that person not argue that Thorpe Park could have done more to stop the spread of a virus they knew could be a problem?(as proved ...

Re: Black Mirror Labyrinth

I’m apprehensive but intrigued. That’s all I really have to say on it :lol I guess I’m just worried given their past tries at a walkthrough type attraction.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

Do you think we will see any changes this year? I know the majority or Dungeon attractions don’t tend to change their scenes for a few years and only really change when they add seasonal shows.

Re: Liseberg May 2020

Michelle is right about Lisebergbanan, Its super fun, especially at night when its been running all day. And Hotel Gasten is stunning and the actors do speak English but you have to tell them in each scene unfortunatley, but its so worth it. Helix front row is something not to miss and do the log fl...

I can't be the only one hoping for little wooden huts around the place selling pretzels and Bratwursts etc. I mean, most Christmas markets don't need them until November, so they could easily rent them :lol Don't they have some of those ready to go over by the hotels? :sus: :lol I mean, they could ...

Re: Oktoberfest - General Discussion

This is pretty cool. I wasn't expecting it and I have been side swiped by this. I'm actually really excited about this. Its slightly different and slightly random and I hope it does well. I hope it kind of has Winter Wonderland vibes but in  early Autumn :lol

Re: The World of David Walliams - New for 2020

One thing I will say is Merlin can do child ride themeing really well. It looks on par with Gruffalo and I think it will be a really fun ride.As long as they remember to theme the ceiling than it could be quite good. I'm actually a wee bit excited about trying it

Re: Flamingo Land

I prefer the green of the cars to the colour of the track, But I do hope they might paint it, but i'm not worried if they do. It will sort of go with the randomness of Flamingoland in a positive way :lol

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

I’m still slightly surprised by this. It starts off so well but then it goes down hill very quickly. I am not surprised the price has been dropped though. I wonder if the puzzles will be the same or different? I hope they have updated the puzzles.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

I would say Thorpe started the year a bit wobbly but come the summer they seemed to have found their feet and delivered two fantastic things. Bouncezilla was the thing that I was most worried about but I enjoyed it way too much and want it to come back bigger and better. Fright Nights had a lot of w...
