at Blackpool, you go through the pub first then exit that through the gift shop.


That must increase sales, a few drinks makes the tat seem more worthwhile.


Haha, true! It's the only reason I can see for anyone buying a mini "chappie chopper" :lol

Re: New London Dungeon Finale: THE TAVERN

I wasn't aware of this change and was caught by (nice) surprise. I did notice the awful changes mentioned regarding the ticket office and green screen. Seems very odd to me to replace a money making shop with giving away a drink. Shame they can't make it like ride exits and have a combined shrek/du...

Re: How much longer will Hex last?

Well, I hope the rumours are false and it's operational next year cos I've finally managed to persuade my sister to come with me, and that's one if about 4 rides she's agreed to go on ](*,)

That is amazing, how many 80's and 90's kids would jump at the chance to do this? Now if they can also make an adult "Fun House"... :yes: They did that in a pub in Lichfield back in May of this year. http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/watch-fun-house-return-pat-6011075" onclick="window.op...

Re: Christmas Adverts 2015- General Discussion

Tescos ads are really annoying this year. I like Ben Miller and Ruth Jones usually. It always feels like Christmas when that ancient Hellman's advert comes on.

Re: At what age can you not handle thrill rides anymore?

It depends on the ride too. Not Alton Towers, but I was at BPB last month and the grand national half killed me. That's a rough ride *vom*

Re: Scariest moments at Alton Towers

Bloodfest Banquet, as I hadn't been to anything like that before. I also may have had a little tipple in Merrie England to calm my nerves so needed to pee and the thought of having to do a walk of shame to the car was very scary :lol

Re: New London Dungeon Finale: THE TAVERN

I guess it's a permanent thing as it's replacing the gift shop. As I said they were having a huge blitz of stock during the summer. I guess they'll make more money on alcohol than pens and wax hands! Haha, that's true! I don't know when I'll be in London next but I look forward to checking this out...

I hope it's not "famous last words" but that's never happened to me. I wouldn't cope well with being stuck for an hour, those milkshakes would have to be pretty spectacular :lol

Re: New London Dungeon Finale: THE TAVERN

It's a shame they don't do that with the pub at Blackpool Dungeon. I love the idea of each table getting a unique experience.

Is this just for the Christmas season or a permanent feature, do you know?
