Re: Derren Brown’s Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

DBGT has proven severely ineffective for Thorpe, backfiring massively on what had been hoped, it surely must be regarded as a failure. I rode it in 2016 & 2017 and from reviews it seems the ride has been filled with issues since. Whilst being innovative, it seems it has been made far too early f...

Alton Towers Future 2020-24

With the opening of The Alton Towers Dungeon, and Wicker Man last year, can we assume Merlin are committed to heavily investing in Alton Towers? Could we be lead to believe more attractions SBNO or removed may be refurbished or replaced? In the short term future will Merlin invest in flat rides to f...

Re: Project 2020

Is it just me or has the 2nd island changed? I remember there being weight testing on the island behind Swarm but now from this image, I’ve got a hunch. The island seems to have had work to it, before it would’ve been left to overgrown but in the image it looks like it’s beenprepared for something. ...

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

However, although the themes are similar the experience, especially on Saw, is incredible. Soley because of the indoor section and use of the storyline, when done right it can be pulled off. Alton need happier themes in order to balance the park. Thorpe can pull Swarm, DGBT, Living Nightmare, TWD:TR...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

At 21:59 1 minute before ride close everything is either closed or at the minimum wait time of 5 mins. That is except Storm surge which still has a 35 minute queue.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I’ve got a season pass but want to visit in August and October. How do I pay the £10 upcharge? Do I pay at the gate or is there a way to book it online to guarantee entry? All help will be very much appreciated.

Re: What do you think should replace CCL?

A yellow tent has popped up by Sub Terra so it looks like 2019 is going to be a big year.

Who knows this could also be a trick, both buildings could be used or none, we’ll have to wait.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

I believe, well I sincerely hope, that this year is good for Merlin. Last year across the board in the UK there was only the update of DBGT, 2 CBeebies additions and a retheme & carousel at Chessington. Hopefully as this year there are mazes open at different points throughout the year; X rethem...

Re: Carowinds

There is new information on Screamscape (link below) about Project Alpha for 2019. This looks to be a brand new coaster - no hurler conversion or Vortex conversion. There are images on there of the suggested layout which looks to contain 5 inversions, 2 launches with a range of banking and airtime. ...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Look at Kraken though. The fact that less than half of the trains are VR marks a change. Hopefully they will realise it’s not worth the VR and just scrap it.

Re: Project 2020

TBH I wouldn’t mind either a Hyper, Dive, LSM, RMC or large GCI. However it’s good if we’re getting a hyper in just 2 years, finally a lengthy good coaster that can compete with those in America. As long as their next coaster is Golden Ticket Award standard, I’ll be happy.

We were given updates that it had been paired but now there’s no news on it. What is happening with this ride as i...
