Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

The Smiler use to be one of my favorite rides at the park, I loved the theme, the atmosphere around the ride and the ride itself. Now, it's dropped so much! Not just due to Wicker Man opening, the ride is becoming rougher and rougher, the station looks so worn out it's unbelievable and just looks li...

Re: Traveling in your own

Hi there and welcome to the forum! I did a few solo trips during the 2017 season and to be honest, they were great fun! Back then you did have the single rider queues which aren't in place at the moment but even if you do go on your own on quieter days then it can be a great day. I did find them wei...

Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

This ride just gets more fun each year somehow. It's honestly such a fun and enjoyable experience. Even though the secret is no longer that impacting or surprising, I still see new people riding and getting shocked at it. The new baggage system has slown things down but doesn't affect the ride too m...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

So it's been a year since Wicker Man was officially revealed to the public.

How do you feel the ride has performed being a year on and do you think its been the right decision by the park?

Re: Rita - General Discussion

Similar to Dan, I often don't mind missing out on this ride due to it being unwhelming compared to the other rides/ having a big queue. It's an OK experience if it's your first time but it can be a rough ride if you time it wrong. It just doesn't have that same impact on me anymore when there are ri...

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

Honestly not really surprised by this. After trying it last season after only doing it once in its first season, its gone massively down hill. The actors never really cared inside and just felt broken. I do hope we see a new attraction inside or even a permanent maze being implimented in it's buildi...

For the first time ever I might get to make one of these meet-ups. Looking at the summer festival.
What do I need to do to register?

All you need to do is purchase a ticket to one of the events when they go on sale!
TT Festival was great last year and I'm sure this year will be equally as good!

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

This might be the season I rode it the least amount of times so far. Don't get me wrong I love the ride and the feeling when being dropped. But the only problem is the throughput, you're constantly stuck on the brake run waiting for the trains ahead to dispatch. You spend more time on the brake run ...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - The Future

Honestly, not really surprised by this. The pricing was high and the reception I had from others who had eaten there was overall negative. I would like to see the area used towards a new attraction since we do have a fair few outlets nearby.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

The problem with the mask rule is that people will always try and find a way around it. If a member of staff asks you to remove it, you could remove it and then put it back on again in a few minutes. It really does leave people with an unnerving feeling having people with masks on who aren't actors....

Re: The Next Themed Area/Area Refurb

I think the most likely/most logical area to refurb/retheme will be Cloud Cuckoo Land. With the Dungeons coming in 2019, I would really like to the see this part of the park restored and made to look good again. It's going to be getting a lot more visitors in that section of the park so they really ...
