Re: When Is Immersive TOO Immersive?

Whilst I love how Galaxies Edge looks and the tech involved makes me so excited, I do see issues with the staff in these areas. Imagine you are a tired dad who doesn't want to be at this expensive park, when suddenly your child wants to do the lightsaber building thing. You go up to the kiosk to boo...

Re: Dubai Parks & Resorts

So I popped into the resort for the first time in over a year the other day and I'll do a full report but here are some short observations. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D7pW4-ZXsAA6V-s.jpg Legoland Hotel is coming along very quickly and is dwarfing the entire area of Riverland, I have a feeling its g...

Re: The Future Of Th13teen

The drop if fine in it's current state. The only improvement that could be made would be that the drop is all in 1 as opposed to a small drop then the main one as I feel the small one ruins the surprise. As someone whos been on Darkmare/Inferno at Cinecitta World (same type of ride as 13), I can sa...

Re: Project 2020

See, thats what I don't understand. If last year was a medium/ large year why didn't they listen to the people and bring in a coaster. How does the money get sucked into FN if 2018's wasn't the best year on park? A new flat for 2020 is possible in my opinion however, they need to start before the t...

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.

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...
