Re: Chessington - General Discussion

1st visit to Chessington on Friday. Overall we had a great day. Enjoyed the first two rides we did best (Vampire and Bubbleworks). A bit frustrated we were there for the rope drop and at the front of the queue for Vampire but they didn't open the ride until 10.30 As we are a young family now no majo...

Re: Bubbleworks 2017 refurbishment

1st visit to the park on Friday.

Glad I got to ride this. Was surprised to see the signage up as nothing on the forums at that point then I saw it come up later in the day. Likely a retheme due to the short time periods, can't see any major other changes.

Re: SW8

Looking forward to this as AT needs a new major draw, but I do hope they find room to squeeze in a flume somewhere.

Re: The Future Of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory; The Rid

Depending on AT's relationship with the BBC there's probably some exciting possibilities for a re theme
Thinking of the "older" demographic, there's Atlantis, Merlin and obviously Dr Who (qv Thorpe Park)

Re: SW8

I think it's going to be a cross valley coaster and will come in 2016.
My glass is - currently - half full!
I do wonder when they'll replace the Flume though.

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

Took me a while to find this thread! Been in theme park hibernation for past 10 years or so but the kids old enough now to start to enjoy the parks. Went to Paulton's park and alton towers twice this year, mainly cbeebies and kiddies rides, but planning to go next year and fast track the big rides. ...

Re: List all the themeparks you have ever been to

I haven't been to many:
Alton towers
Drayton manor
Paultons park
Blackpool pleasure beach
Great Yarmouth pleasure beach

Disney Paris planned for October though, and MAP for 2016- after several years of hibernation the hungers reawakened!

its mainly going to be aimed at hotel guests wanting to do something outside of the theme park. especially during the winter season when the theme park is closed.

this will also be aimed at those team building type things big corporations do.


I agree: got away day all over it

Re: SW8

I think it will be a cross valley coaster. Trees down in gloomy wood, prospect tower regen, and major investment year. They need a big coaster next year so reckon this'll be it.
