Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

I just wish Thorpe would just escape this situation they are in. I don't think its helping how they are replying to peoples questions with 'lol funny' gifs.
Thorpe please escape this fantasy you are in.

Its like they're aware of the awfulness that this past week has been, they're trying to be self aware, but its not working. I saw a few facebook comments of non enthusiasts basically saying ...

Re: SeaWorld Abu Dhabi

http://www.themeparx.com/seaworld-abu-dhabi-27.jpg Very interesting development in which we have seemed to have received an updated site layout on the park, with only half of the planned space being used for the park, its also now going to be 100% indoor with what looks like a coaster that will go ...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

I’m on a discord group where for the past few months we’ve been joking that “Fortnite: Flight of the Battlebus” new Quantum retheme coming to Thorpe Park in 2019.

Little did I know we were quite close. So now some laughter.

Re: Six Flags Dubai

Six Flags Dubai has officially been put on hold. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DyyNbGqX0AUs2UE.jpg Its not been 100% cancelled though. The park is being financed by the government and is apparently 15% complete. My guess is until the rest of the parks in the resort see better visitor numbers, we won't...

Re: Project 2020

Been doing some digging and found out that Swarms final planning docs were filed on the 10th February 2011. So my guess is if we are in fact going to be seeing something major in 2020, It would have to be unveiled within a week or two. Honestly not expecting anything to happen. Thorpe haven't really...

Re: Dubai Parks & Resorts

So I've known for some time that Motiongate was originally planned to have an area themed to 20th Century Fox, but that was scrapped in favor of Lionsgate and to be used as possible future expansion (unlikely now due to the Disney acquisition), but some early blueprints have been released online sho...

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. Apparently that originally was going to be the case due to the re theme of the Hollywood ride, however internal plans have apparently changed due to this ne...

Re: Project 2020

Hmmm, could we have had our first tease for 2020? Thorpe's 2018 end of season video surfaced on Twitter a couple of days ago and one shot in particular caught my eye: Towards the end of the video (1:00 exactly) a random shot of a field is placed. Why place this in a video celebrating the 'best seas...
