Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

Yesterday at Thorpe park on Rumba Rapids some guy asked the ride op if he could jump in and swim in the ride. That was pretty amusing.

At the moment Thorpe aren't giving away any details as to why Steath is down :(

According to some other forums it's something to do with the launch cable. Supposedly it's getting replaced.

Re: SW8

I'm pretty sure this will be more intense than Th13teen especially if its wooden . That level of intensity should be perfect for a family ride especially for people wanting to start going on bigger rides.

I really want to know what Merlin's excuse for this is. Admittedly Wild Asia could probably do with a bit more colour but this isn't the way. This is horrible! [emoji35]

I'm happy to see the return of lands however wish the lands had more creative names. The jungle and Old town sound too generic.

Re: SW8

Hype! I've been waiting for this day as soon as the smiler first opened. Whatever this ride is its in a great location too. I hope there is a sweeping drop like on Furious baco over the lake to see when going into mutiny bay.

As nice as it is to see she's coping with life I'm starting to feel she's popping up a bit too much now. She was in a terrible accident but we don't hear about this from other people in similar accidents.

Re: Best ride of 2016

Taron looks to be the best overall experience so I guess that my choice but lightning rod seems to be a better rollercoaster. Taron just gets it.

What if HSE decide the ride has to be renamed Danger of death? That would be interesting.[emoji23] The signs would even fit the colour scheme!

A friend of mine insists that all drop towers are called detonators.
