Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

With regards to 'Darkest Depths', as awesome as it would be to have a scare attraction set within Sharkbait Reef, I can't help wondering how the combination of jumpy, terrified humans and glass tanks would go down. I agree with the article in reckoning it'll be situated in the Courtyard. Mind you, w...

Re: Heritage

Speaking of local abandoned stations, you can also pop a little further along to the old Oakamoor station. To get to it, you go down a little road called Mill Rd, off the B5417 in Oakamoor (google maps will help!!). Keep heading down slowly and things will eventually be self-explanatory. You'll get ...

Re: Heritage

What's everyone's favourite bit of the gardens?

It's a tough one for me but I particularly like the hidden chambers underneath the conservatories where they used to use fire to heat the pool thing above(at least that's what I've been told they were for) :D

Re: Pleasurewood Hills

Indeed, there have been pictures on the park's Facebook page of what looked like a crack on a pale surface (like an egg) and another one posted later on with a flurry of white feathers. Something bird-related it would seem! I also recall seeing the word "egg-citing"(or something similar) b...

Re: Pleasurewood Hills

Never before have I been so excited to see a little clone ride come back! Bring it on. As long as it's brought back in a similar level of glory as when it was in its heyday(tunnel, effects etc), then we'll all be happy. It may not be a totally brand new investment but at least its renovation will se...

Re: Pleasurewood Hills

Looking forward to seeing what this guy has to offer! He seems to have his heart in it, rather than it just being a business opportunity for him, so we'll have to keep an eye out for changes.

Re: Careers - Interviews and Job Advice

Agreed with above. There always seems to be a mix of levels of smartness(anything from a tracksuit to a full on suit) but I'd suggest erring slightly more on the smart side, but not being too uptight-looking. That way you can't go wrong :) Not only does it improve your employers' view of you, but al...

Re: Careers - Interviews for towers

Hi you awesome people.  Hi you awesome people.  Was hoping to get some advice on the interview process. I've done a lot of research to prepare for the 4/5 hour interview. That said i think I'm way overthinking this. I've read loads of employee reviews, some of which are from 2018. But they are real...

Re: ‘Stargazing Pods’ Accommodation Discussion

While they do look both adorable and non-invasive on the outside, the interior is very basic. You'd like to hope they'll be very cheap, especially if you're in the pods that are furthest away from the toilets! That being said, if you were a guest with a toilet-related condition (whether an official ...

Re: Evermore

Looks absolutely amazing and surreal :O Without big rides to build and maintain, that's a massive chunk of budget which can go towards making a hyper-magical environment (if it's a theme park budget) :D

Re: SP Southern Screamer 2018 - Reviews & Feedback

Very enjoyable event. Nice to have a nice, chilled, sunny day on park and not too much action and energy involved (that's best saved for scarefest!).  The highlight for me was seeing so many new faces. Was great to meet you all and hopefully see you in the shoutbox more and at other events too :D Th...

It could work with any of the parks, but would be particularly spectacular at Alton due to the gardens, law...

Apologies for the double post, but if anyone hasn't yet noticed, a certain auction error has been all over the news today... During the carousel's auction, there were no bidders to match the company's £180,000 minimum sale price, until the last second. However, apparently it turns out that last minu...
