Re: Warwick Castle

Was lucky enough to see the Dragon Slayer show last night, and I have to say it was amazing and the story was well put together. The last scene with the projection onto the Castle was incredible, everyone after the show had only good things to say about the event.

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I thought Alton Towers was supposed to be their flagship park? I'm sorry but after this news I think Thorpe Park is now taking it's place, at least it's open longer.

Re: Do you get sick on theme park rides? You can help!

Only air makes me feel sick I think it's the laying down makes me feel ill, although about 15 years ago I was sick on vortex at Thorpe park. Just as it came to a stop, I've never wanted restraints to open so quickly, there was fanta fruit twist everywhere
