Re: Logger's Leap

Let me guess is it an RMC T-Rex giga coaster?

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Recently Merlin have distanced themselves from any Thorpe Park branding, as Swarm Chris says, there is no branding for Thorpe in the MAP advert this would be a deliberate decision as in the past they have continued to advertise rides that already opened, so they could have just advertised TWD:TR on ...

Is there any planning site where we can oppose the submission?

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Well, there were rumblings of the VR being removed this season, I wonder if this is true and if any changes will be made to the ride. (For example I can’t see them playing the preshow if the VR is gone)

Re: Forbidden Valley Future

It’s good to see they are spending money on maintaining such an old ride instead of removing it. (Blade and Gallopers are last two rides which were at the parks opening if I’m correct?) Also, I wonder why they haven’t said anything on Towers TLC about this or Air’s jetwash, they haven’t said anythin...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I’m pretty sure that Blackpool and Warwick Dungeons have no more than 20 in a group. Because the sets usually aren’t very big to give a slight claustrophobic feel and it feels more personal with the guests and the actor.

Having 40 or even 80 people in a group would cause utter chaos.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Also, if they are trying to sell to investors why do it through Alton Towers social media and not at a sort of Merlin trading update where most investors will see it.

It just seems weird to me. “We’re expecting to make more money this year” is a very stupid way to market yourself to the public.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

One concern I have with The Dungeons is general park goers may confuse it with Hex. I can just imagine a family walking past the Hex entrance and little Timmy wanting to go on it only for his parents to say “Oh Timmy, we can’t go on that, you have to pay for that ride”. And same goes for people who ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

The fact that these drop towers have their own queue and the fact the planning application does not feature any new buildings/building modifications infers this is an outside addition and the mention of ‘junior’ drop towers implies that this has nothing to do with The Dungeons. Could it be something...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

Having a Dungeon at Towers and not having any scenes based around the local area seems a bit stupid to me. The area has loads of Dungeon sort of history and yet they just choose to put a midway on the site of a major ride with the exact same scenes as the other Dungeons in Europe albeit with a sligh...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Rumba Rapids is decent imo.

It found it better than Legoland or Drayton’s rapids but there’s nothing that stands out if you’ve done Congo River Rapids.

If this was to get rethemed or removed I wouldn’t really care.

I've seen a lot of people try to take this little clip out of context, thinking its something to do with 'ahhh its wood, rmc confirmed!'/ahhh thats loggers area'. Thorpe won't build anything here because frankly that would be a bit stupid to slap a coaster there. A while back when there were going ...

Re: Industry Talk

The only way I could see Merlin doing this is having a higher than normal price on peak days and then a regular price structure on regular days. The reason I could see them doing a ‘value’ style pricing is if Alton Towers chooses to become a 365 day park where what currently is offseason there is a ...
