Re: Chessington - The Future

Disappointing to see another new addition being an IP, and possibly actor led. When will they learn?

Re: Six Flags Magic Mountain

Six Flags have announced West Coast Racers is their 2019 roller coaster. Labelled as the worlds first racing launched coaster, it will circuit the track twice, meaning you will experience four launches and reach speeds of 55mph.

Re: Project 2020

Adding to the above, I.P 06 could well mean this will be the 6th IP attraction Thorpe add alongside Lionsgate, Angry Birds, I’m a celeb, DBGT and TWD. Just an idea :)

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I visited this weekend and unfortunately the chain was still doing that. It was my first time on the ride and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Bag drop is still an issue, batching in to the pre show is still an issue as hursty pointed out, there isn’t enough room in the station. Also, the staff w...

Re: Merlin Entertainments file a UK trademark for ‘The Alton Towers Dungeon’

I must admit I quite like the sound of this idea. Look forward to hearing more. Could this be a potential life line for Nemesis Sub-Terra I wonder? Certainly hope so! :)

Re: Hong Kong Disneyland

Wow, disappointing to hear that pretty much all developments have been delayed. Can’t say I’m a fan of the castle makeover either.

I just hope that we get a family coaster at DLP off the back of this :)

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

Seems a bit... random... I have no doubt that it’ll have a decent budget and they’ll make it look right, but I don’t see how it fits in at all. Disappointing.

Re: Escape Room Attractions

I have done several of Room Escape Southend’s rooms which have all be scare themed, and really enjoyable! I have also done Room Escape London which had a ‘Steal the crown jewels’ theme. Totally different experience, but just as fun. Same as Dom I have a list of different attractions around the count...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

It seems strange that they have introduced the ‘live actor attraction’ category, but TWD:TR doesn’t include this. With it being the year of the walking dead and the new ride themed around them, surely it would be standard that we get actual walkers within the attraction? Unless they have some sort o...

They have also confirmed the ride will open this weekend and the TLC project will continue when the park is closed in the evenings and mid week. :)

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride - New for 2018

If that’s the case, that’s pretty poor marketing on Thorpe’s behalf. Their social media campaign says: “Reckon you have what it takes to take on #TheWalkingDead Immerse yourself in The Walking Dead: The Ride only at THORPE PARK from Easter.” Easter 2018 is Sunday 1st April, so if it’ll be opening a ...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I agree with Lakey, it just doesn’t seem very... exciting? The layout is pretty meh compared to what we’ve seen achieved by this manufacturer, and our ever growing expectations. The fact it has no real theme is a shame as these coasters can utilise and increase ride experience dramatically. It’s gre...
