Re: SP Summer Sizzler 2017 - Reviews & Feedback

Hi! This was my first ever TT/SP meetup so it was quite exciting for me personally! Everyone was really nice though so I quickly felt at home  :D   I thought all the extras were really good (and also it was great being escorted right to the front of both DBGT and Swarm). Particularly the talks with ...

Re: Fright Nights

What would be everyone's opinions if Thorpe Park introduced a fee to enter the mazes? Personally, I think it's needed. The queues are far too long, and also the maze experience is being diluted by Thorpe Park trying to maximize throughput and get as many people through as possible. However, if they ...

Re: Fright Nights

Hi, I have gone to scarefest at AT for the last few years, and we are not considering going to Fright Nights for a change - but having failed to find scare maze ticket prices, I wondered whether they included in park admission? If they are, is fast track needed? - typically how long are wait times?...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

The hardware itself of the headsets are made by HTC, but I have no idea about the headphones. As far as visuals go, figment is definitely responsible for that. However, I'm not sure how much of the technical faults are due to the actual visuals or just the physical headsets themselves failing.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

This is my slightly more in-depth review, mostly describing particular features which really stood out to me and things I found particularly fantastic. (obviously, spoilers, so don't read this if you're going to go on it in the near future) The pre-show room was very interesting, but the best part o...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I got to ride the experience today and overall I think it is really, really good! It was scary enough for it to be exciting, and the quality of the experience I found to be excellent. What blows my mind is the logistics of the ride, just how does it work?? I honestly thought it was just 1 train mov...

Re: Thorpe Park - New Indoor Attraction 2016

From my understanding, in order to complete clue 1, you simply just need to log in to the website between 7:30 and sometime like 8:45 (although I'm not sure on the ending time). I would suggest logging out sometime before 7:30 and then logging in after 7:30 and hopefully you should do it. :) In othe...

Re: Planning Application for Enhancements to Air

Can't remember who said it, but I definitely think it will be called Galactica (or Intergalactic) I also see VR headsets being a part of it, mainly because there isn't enough physical theming to warrant it being a full retheme. Also the preshow could definitely be about how to put on and treat the V...

Ah I so badly want to know what was posted on the website! I'm assuming no one can tell me, but does anyone know when the picture will be officially released?

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

What they should do is have someone ride it non-stop from gate open to park close - to show firstly that everyone should have every faith in the ride, and secondly they could even do it to raise some money for charity (for example for the air ambulance, who helped greatly on the day of the incident)...

Re: Planning Application for Enhancements to Air

I saw a suggestion that they would use Virtual Reality on the ride, which personally I see as very plausible!

Where did the statistic of £35 million come from? Just wanted to know, as it has been mentioned quite often lately.

Sorry to double post, but I've found some other news. According to this, Containment will be priced at £8 and may be able to be booked online in advance.

Re: Thorpe Park - New Indoor Attraction 2016

That is incredibly interesting. I wonder if you can find those light features in Saw:The Ride or something like that? Or maybe in a film or something?
