Re: Scarefest

We've not purchased them yet. We were advised at time of booking that scarefest was included in the park tickets, like Thorpe park.
We've arrived today to find we have to buy tickets!
Hotel staff have said to go to ticket office when we go in park in the morning and they'll be able to sort us out.

Re: Scarefest

Can anyone recommend the best times to do the scare mazes please?

We're going in on Saturday and they say to allow 90mins for the 3. We're thinking it needs to be done after dark really but we don't want to run out of time!

Any advice?

Cheers

Re: M&D's

Surely it needs all the wheels on one side to fail for it to come off completely?

Lots of slating going on on Facebook, never been there, but seems it's a very run down park..?
Thoughts go out to all involved!

Re: Two Smiler trains collide -- BREAKING

I don't get that twitter video- that shows it rolling to a stop, but I'm watching the live news and it looks like it's stopped dead into the empty one?!

Re: Two Smiler trains collide -- BREAKING

Very latest is the 12 minor injuries are expected to get discharged from the scene shortly where the 4 majors, who are all conscious, will be air lifted to hospital.
Please don't help spread the death rumour.

Hey guys,

Re: Oblivion safety issue, who to contact.

Yeah thanks for the comments - as i said I didn't think it was a safely feature as such. But you've cleared that up. So i'll leave it there then.

Re: Oblivion safety issue, who to contact.

The seatbelt is close to being not attached to the seat, where it is sewn to a loop in the chair.

Not a safety issue as such its unsafe to ride, but something i'm sure shouldn't be let go.

Re: Oblivion safety issue, who to contact.

No, this is not at all right.

I understand the seatbelt is no part of the restraint, and is there as extra measure / ensure the harness is closed down enough..?

As i said, i don't want to complain to them, nor do i want to get anything out of it.

Re: Ice Age - The 4-D Experience Discussion

Visited this today, and I must say, we were not impressed at all. Thought was rather pony! 2 rows of seats were closed, not a problem until I noticed it was because the sprinklers were constantly dripping on them, right in front of us! I found almost everything was out of sync, the fans would blow c...
