Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Thorpe Park is fantastic But they need to get rid of the 'I'm a celebrity' and sort out the ghost train. Also I think it would be great if they reopened the train to the other side of the island. They could use the train as part of the theming to the area it takes you to. Although I did enjoy platfo...

Re: Bubbleworks 2017 Replacement

I really think a sewer themed ride would be cool. I made this a while back, you could have a room like this (whirlpool room): https://mattsdesignsblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/new2.jpg Theres all sort of creatures you could have in there; Giant rats, alligators, ninja turtles lol, even demons. T...

Re: Bubbleworks 2017 Replacement

I'm certain it will be a gruffalo themed ride. I wonder what they will do with the final room.
If they do keep the fountains what relevance will it have to the story. Either way I can wait and I'm going to book for first thing next year!!!

Re: What did you ride on your first visit?

Anybody seen the oblivion documentary before it opened??? I remember watching that when my parents said we were going there!!! We headed straight for oblivion. It was raining and the que started about 50M before the x-sector sign!!! [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] We queued for hours and my mum who is t...

Here is a pic of a exact mirrored replica dive mashie in Tiwan. It puts into perspective how well Alton Towers did to get this coaster into a park with rest...

Re: X-Sector refurbishment?

I've been riding oblivion since it first opened and have since ridden many other dive machines. Oblivion is my favourite still but only because of the hole you dive into. S.J_O'Grady for the controversy in your post[emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]. To be fair though it is a good view. Sent from my iPhone...

X-Sector refurbishment?

This is all true apart from 'it doesn't need it' Look at the que for oblivion it's a walk on every time. Yes true it's scary!!! But I don't believe adding track would make it scarier but it would add value to the ride experience which at the moment is great for intensity and intimidation but not for...

Re: X-Sector refurbishment?

I've thought about this for while, Oblivion is a bit outdated now with Dive Machines out classing it in every way. It would be great if they extended the track after the drop and put this inside a building so it's half a dark ride. Also the fact you don't see the train re-appear will create a bette...

Re: 2017: New Attractions

I was amazed at how good they all were. some were huge and real thrill rides. even a mobile log flume! so there are dece...
