Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

I genuinely thought they were in some form of farm for those pictures :|

Looks like it could be fun, but for £10 I think I'll pass..

Emm.. and the original audio, and signage around the area don't forget!

Awaiting the season "Halfway Corrected" is brought back.

Think the track is trying to start looking the same colour as the trains..

Ben & Jerry's has taken over that building.

Re: Heide Park

Not gonna lie.. the marketing art looks way better than the actual structure itself.. reminds me of the face used on Hex at Alton Towers..

Still good though! Just not the same as intended I think.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

As someone who enjoys a bit of cosplay every now and again, I can say that the Fortnite characters are pretty good I guess.. Sonic could be a lot better.. but what in the world is that Mario and Luigi costumes.. Literally looks like they have gone to the party store 'LuvUBabes' and got a cheap outfi...

Re: Project 2020

Where in that FAQ did it state they have no major plans in the next couple of years?

I can only see the Long Term Development Plan, if that is what you are referencing?

Re: Project 2020

With Robin Hood at Walibi Holland being converted to RMC.. Merlin have to realise that with the success of Wicker Man for one, and with the re-opening of Colossus at Heide Park (is that right?) Then either another GCI in Loggers place, or to really up the game, RMC. With the competition of other par...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I haven’t said anything negative about others enjoying the ride. Everything I have said is my own personal opinion :) If people enjoy than they enjoy it. I am not the sort of person to hate on someone because they like something I don’t and if it came across like that than I apologise :) I'm sorry ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

The fact the ride has a brilliant soundtrack, a great backstory, and of course a layout filled with inversions in a tight area.. The ride may be run down and in need of a good clean and repairs. But to say the ride hasn't got a good aspect is a bit harsh :-k

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

I don’t think Junior Drop Towers would really fit into Forbidden Valley or X Sector.. too different in ride types, and thrill factor. As FV and XS are known to be thrill areas.. if anything we could see one tower in CBeebies Land, and one tower to replace the current frog hopper. I strongly think th...

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

The train from London to Hogsmeade was inspired and far better than I would have thought, having a third Potter land would undermine it a bit, especially as there's no way of them doing another sort of 'journey' like that.   A third potter land put putting too many eggs in one basket, spreading the...

Re: Gulliver's Valley Resort - Sheffield

So when is this theme park meant to start construction or is it already in construction?

Not heard anything about it :roll:

Re: Project 2020

I do believe that they are keeping this project under wraps.. this is the next coaster in 6 years.. so the secrecy will be there.. and I do believe when this ride unveils itself, the hype will be enormous!

Mark my words..

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

I’m quite certain that it has been said that the current JP area in IoA is being rethemed to Jurassic World when the new coaster is installed.

Did someone sell them the promise of a 4D coaster?


Whoops, I thought that was Mack.. that’s embarrassing.

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Be gone with it.. Personally, the Galactica theme is fantastic for the ride to work with, but more theming elements should be added to enhance the area further. Such as near misses, tunnel retheme to match what was on the VR with lighting. Apart from that the ride is fine and still packs somewhat of...
