Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

Sorry if It's already been clarified, I've been through the thread & the mini-site & I still can't see a definitive answer. I'd appreciate some clarity please people. :) Is there going to be a launch on the lift hill? The shpiell, the artwork & the term "Launch portal" seems to...

Re: Rides & Attractions

I guess the Top Gear ride idea may have been moved to a back burner for now.

Re: Islands of Adventure: Marvel Superhero Island refurbishm

No evidence or rumours to back this up, but as, sooner or later, Universal know they're going to have to let Disney have their Marvel characters, with DDFF rumoured to be exiting, could this be the start of a total re-theme for that area of the park? They could re-theme the Storm-Tea-cup-a-tron in a...

Or a haunted train ride linking the 2 areas in a 'Orlando Howarts Express' Stylee?

Re: New for 2015 - I'm a Celebrity! Maze

Where is this going please? I never went to Studio 13 or the Asylum & I can't find any reference to where the actual site within the park for this new "Attraction" is?

Re: Thorpe Park - New Indoor Attraction 2016

Actually Gutted at the patheticness of this announcement. Wasn't their a £30+ million price tag being shouted round for this new "attraction". Please don't tell me they've wasted all that money on this crock! There is just No Way that this can be anything other than Crap. They take a serie...

Re: Congo River Rapids

But why choose such a horribly garish colour for them? The old ones were a much duller colour, that fit in with the background, so it added to the overall theming of the area, which is excellent. The newer yellow tubs look awfull & don't fit in at all for me. Does anyone happen to knowif they go...

Re: Future of the Monorail

You all MUST of heard the rumour of moving the park entrance to somewhere round FV/GW though? & if they did that, there'd be no need for the monorail, you could access the park direct from the car parks! The skyway would then become a transport hub, one way for DF, the other way CBB/XS.& wit...

Re: Future of the Monorail

The monorails were filthy this year, inside & out. From the look of the thick green layer of algae growing on the top of them, they haven't had any proper tlc for sometime! An indication they're due for huge refurb or scrapping sometime soon maybe?

Re: 2015 Rumours

It was me who tipped off Screamscape to the rumour surrounding Ripsaw & I'm pretty confident it's true given the number of staff singing from the same hymm sheet. I always tap the staff on site for rumours whenever I visit & when we went last month, I did my usual stunt & asked EVERY sta...

Re: Ride accidents and dangers that you have experienced

Quite a bad one as it happens, & the death knell for the ride in question & the park (I use the term loosely, it was a hole!) in which it was housed. Back in July 2005 I rode the Jet-Stream at Rhyl Ocean Park (with my Fearless then 4 year old daughter). It was pretty quiet, but as we approac...
