Re: SP Southern Screamer 2016 Reviews & Feedback

What can I say another fantastic event pulled of by the TTSP team! Probably the funniest event I've attended out of the 3 and was great to talk to so many of you in the very large queues (I'm looking at you Tidal Wave and Saw!) From the wetness of the Tidal Wave Queue to the endless Saw queue it was...

Re: Saw - The Ride

Re: Samurai

Reports from people on park today are saying that Samurai was testing during the day today,also apparently it will be ready for the weekend,but this could just be a rumor.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

There are currently a few rumours going round saying that there will be only a select few of the major rides open on opening day,from a post I saw on Facebook it,it seems like it could be reliable but not at the same time. They were claiming that when they went to book tickets that only 13 and Obliv...

I dislike people like this... you need to read it! I'm kinda happy she won't be returning, the park can do without individuals like her creating unnecessary drama where it isn't needed. http://oi67.tinypic.com/33z9o35.jpg" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; http://oi67.tinypic.com/30k9bm...

Re: SP ScareMazing South 2015 - Reviews & Feedback

What can i say ehh? The best time I've ever had at Thorpe Park regarding being with a group that's not family,to be honest most of us were a bit hacked of with operations from the start to end of the day. The behind the scenes tour were great i did start to feel a little sick after a while on Saw as...

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

What will solve the problem is seatbelts with a grab bar a bit like Tower Of Terror. It can easily solve the larger guest problem as seat belts are adjustable to each rider! Having the grab bar would add extra comfort and something to hold onto.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Was there even a minimum number of riders for them to send the train before it crashed?I assume that now it will be around 4-6riders minimum if they don't want it to stall again with riders.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Could we see more spacing between the trains now so. Train is only dispatched once its just about to peak the V lift giving it time to get back to the brakes before the train that just go dispatched to get to the top of the lift hill so even if a roll back did occur after the V lift they could stop ...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Could be looking at adding a few more sensors or as Tom said above adding some cameras. The track is indeed getting rusty they need to do something about that. Apart from when it first happened has anyone seen it testing again?

It would seem that it's getting inspected today. Not sure if it's maintenance or HSE? Could be a sign!

It was popular before the accident anyway and it will probably regain it again when it opens.

Re: 2015 Scarefest

I'd say they would be better using that space thay they cleared as somewhere to.buy maze tickets. They can easily put up a tent. Will allow for people to go to the resort box office for other things rather than maze tickets. Also i'm intrested in how they run mazes,do.they have someone in a room lik...

What are the chances of the op cabin being changed slightly so that they can see the batwing not via a camera. They could easily make a window in the wall of the station or have double operators. 1 double check that the prev train has passed the bat wing element the other to manage load/unload. If t...

Re: Project Towers: NL2

Is the monorail being included in this so you could actully get on it to the park from the car park! It would be pretty amazing as well as soundeffects!
