Re: Howl-o-ween

So, Creepy Caves After Dark. That was... something . After the announcement in the summer, it seemed safe to assume that Chessington's attempt at an "extreme" attraction was going to be more akin to a run through of Sub-Species, but what was on offer was far more intense!  Entering, we fou...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

There's definitely a new arrangement for Galactica this year. There was a new Dark Forest track last year, so that's probably what you heard :)

Re: Fright Nights

After sitting the event out last year and seeing as the silly annual pass restrictions have been removed, I decided to return to Fright Nights yesterday. In the past, I've never particularly enjoyed Thorpe's Halloween offering. I've always found their mazes to have bland set-design repetitive scares...

Re: Food & Beverages

Fancied a change yesterday, so decided to eat at Pizza Pasta.  We'd eaten at the one at Alton Towers several times across the season, so we knew how it worked- get shown to a table, then go up to get food and fight your way through the crowds until you're satisfied with the amount you've got, before...

Re: Fright Nights

This is great news to hear. Perhaps they over-estimated demand with the Southern half term only just starting. It'll probably be back to usual Fright Nights chaos this week though! Regardless, it's nice to hear- might actually attend now.

Re: Ideas & Suggestions for 2020

In terms of ERTs- it'd be nice to see both Galactica and Saw on the offerings. It's been a very long time since we've had either, and in that time there's been plenty of new members who won't have had the chance to experience them. Behind the Scenes is already cropping up quite a bit, and that's som...

Re: Plopsaland De Panne

This coaster looks crazy! It's really cool that we're getting one of the modern, inverting Mack spinners as whilst Time Traveller does look great, Plopsaland is far closer. Really looking forward to seeing this completed, and will certainly be making the trip over the sea to give this a go. The only...

Re: TT ScareMazing 7 - Reviews & Feedback

Once again, the event was so much fun! It was really great to take-over the mazes, as it's always so nice to see different peoples reactions, and doing them as a community is really refreshing.  The talk was insightful hearing just how much effort is put into Scarefest every year. As always, it was ...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

Well, this is a "surprise"! The Walliams idea itself isn't really shocking, but I just don't really feel that this is... right . It's no secret that CCL has been a very quiet area over the past few seasons and has clearly needed work, so in some sense, this is good news as it means that th...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Project 42 is presumably having some issues with its preshow today. The maze opened an hour later than usual- the preshow video has been moved elsewhere, and the walk from preshow through to decontamination isn't being used.

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Once again, Scarefest goes from strength to strength. I seem to say this every year, but based off my first impressions- 2019 is the best that Scarefest has ever been! Towers Street is decorated in it's traditional fleet of bunting and pumpkins, including a new set of ride-based ones. There's also s...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

I'll do a proper review of the mazes tomorrow- but The Attic is different to anything the Resort have done, whilst still feeling traditional and retaining that "Terror" vibe. As a theatrical based maze, it feels right as a separate ticket. It's great, and the sets and lighting are very good.

Re: The Future Of Scarefest

You'll have to forgive me for reviving such an old topic, but after experiencing the three Darkfield containers last week, would a more "theatrical theatre" type attraction work? For those that haven't heard of Darkfield, their three shows/attractions are very simple. You're given a pair o...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

On a speculative note thanks to this little tidbit on Darkest Depths, could we possibly see a big puppet for the "kraken"? And with some of the old Sub containers being sighted, maybe parts of the old alien puppet could be retrofitted?
