Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019?

This has really intrigued me, there's a few potential ways they could go with this. I think a usual dungeon up-charge is the least exciting idea. I think a seasonal attraction similar to I'm A Celebrity at Thorpe Park would be the best way to do it (although with a different experience). I'd rather ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I still don’t understand why people go to a theme park in a school holiday with a new major ride and not expect to queue!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Enterprise on 35 minutes and blade on 30. Hopefully they’ll eventually learnt the importance of flat rides, people still want to ride them!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

That’s very impressive, very well done to the park to get this open so late when they could have left it closed.

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Probably won’t be themed but I’m sure it will look nice, hope they do an ok job of the queue though. Blackpool has some of the worst places to wait until the uk.

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

As always take what you hear from staff with a pinch of salt. What would a construction worker be doing with front seats anyway, wouldn't that be a problem effects all seats anyway? Just wondering if anyone had any ideas on how the marketing should go. I liked the viral marketing that Alton went for...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Another quick question, how does front row queuing work at Thorpe? I know stealth has a front row queue but that's the limit of my knowledge. Do the staff let you pick your row? I heard The Swarm had a pass system, is that still operational? Cheers for any help

Me and my friend are finally making our first visit to Thorpe Park after a LONG time waiting. Just wandering if anyone can give me any tips on what order to do the rides or anything else?

Re: Drayton Manor

I can't believe that they see more places for people to stay as a priority. This is the definition of a one day park!

On a side note what is their height limit for new rides? I'm trying to predict their inevitable next cosster but without their limit it's quite hard.

I like the sound of the new Coasters and Billboards. They really are being incredible pumping out these updates so quickly!

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

I'm glad they are doing it similar to Galactica rather than the six flags method which is much slower from what I have heard. Then again the speed of operations really does come down to the staff I guess!

Re: Knott's Berry Farm

I can't see Cedar Point getting it, they'll have RMC mean streak for 2018. The other parks need it more (even if it is a second hand boomerang).

Re: Galactica

How much does a sequence take to produce?

Maybe some of the other planets on the departure boards will be visited

Re: SW8

I hope the construction of a new family thrill coaster will signal the end of Spinball. But it will probably be replaced with a expansion with a new kiddy flat nobody wants.

Re: Galactica - A worth while investment?

For me the VR never really failed. The actual VR experience is ok but did make me a little dizzy (I do get sick if I use screen in cars though). The theming elements are much stronger than air and the branding is some of the best at the resort. The soundtrack is phenomenal as well! The best part for...
