Re: Tomb Blaster

It's really disappointing to hear this, I don't get to Chessington often but I always loved Tomb Blaster. I love dark rides , I just wish they were maintained better and this truly sounds like it's being left to rot. Like Alice says I'd really like a new originally themed dark ride, but it's unlikel...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Food and Beverage

This is now the thing I am MOST excited for this season, I will absolutely be trying this out. #priorities
Good spot Justin, interesting to see so many F&B changes this year. Really hoping the halloumi wraps are still in Mutiny Bay though.

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Absolutely Lakey, I'm looking forward to the return of some atmosphere in that area now people can see what they're doing rather than being a little confused by the lack of video or (like me) eyes screwed shut hoping to not be ill :lol I anticipate that the majority of people will welcome the change...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

It's hard to say for certain without seeing it in person, but I kind of like it... Definitely haven't had the instant 'its terrible' reaction that some others have had , and yes you would hope that by opening we won't be able to see any of the Charlie theming!

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

I think the pins are £4-4.50 each these days generally, but you can get AP discount if you have one.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

I could potentially be tempted by the personalised notebook, it's good to see a new range of merch , some of the pins look pretty nice. The operation, we've got one sat in our back room (pretty bashed now despite us not ever using it) that we got for £3 at London Dungeons when they were selling off ...

Re: Stealth

It's probably my favourite ride at Thorpe , probably. With the exception of the fact that if I'm not correctly braced I end up painfully folded in half for the first so many seconds :lol I really enjoy this ride, I love the theme, the music playing in the area makes me genuinely happy especially on ...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

What you're suggesting could potentially work Justin, but I REALLY REALLY hope that this isn't the reality, the thought of more upcharge makes me feel ill. I did hope we'd seen the back of the VR this year, aside from the fact I've not ridden for two seasons now due to it making me feel so travel si...

Re: Chessington - The Future

I've the same opinion, The Gruffalo is very well done and was beautiful to experience, it's too easy to cling to nostalgia but the parks do have to move on and if the quality of this is similar to the Gruffalo then it should be a great addition.

Re: Kobra

Can't say Kobra has ever been a 'must do' purely based on the queue times it usually gets, it is a fun ride though, as long as I tie my hair up first :lol

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

My enthusiasm to get back to the park is almost entirely based on my need to get back on Wicker Man. I'll never forget the first day I rode, approaching the ride with the Welcome-Inn to the left, bunting strung around about , the weather was good and as cheesy as it is for the first time in such a l...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

I think streetmagix is probably referring to the sale that has not long finished on new passes. Although if I remember correctly is there not usually some kind of discount later in the year too, maybe May/June time? I could be making that up entirely, it is early :lol

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

As someone who uses fastrack, I am never worried if I still have a wait , fully understanding that the point of FT is that you ride quicker than the main queue but that you are not guaranteed no wait. I understand that view might not be the same if a person has forked out a great deal, for an entire...

Re: I'm a Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here

I thought the premise was interesting , but in reality it was a confusing attraction, not well acted after the media night and on every experience I had in there half of the effects didn't work as planned. It was also home to one of my more embarrassing theme park moments when my backpack, and subse...

I find Nemmy so forceful these days that it's unpleasant for me anywhere further back than the middle! Especially if it's later than about mid day. I generally now will only ride if I am with people who will wait for the front, I really love seeing everything whip past and find that the most enjoyab...
