Re: Tayto Park

Whist this is bad news and they will have to re evaluate their expansion plans. It does also mean that they can improve on their original plans. Because in my opinion, the coasters planned had quite whack layouts. Make them different, add a few sound proofing methods, reduce the height and maybe put...

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

Updated website https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D-Ez33SW4AAhYk5.jpg A teaser for the plans were dropped. Shows a few coaster squiggles, one of which I'm pretty sure is a Maurer Spike (weird choice based on how unreliable and apparently boring they are), plus I believe it will go here, based on the plan...

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: 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.
