Re: Mechanical Engineering in the theme park industry

I am interested too as I plan on making a career out of mechanical and structural engineering, with theme parks my no. 1 choice for industry.

Re: SW9

^ Icon is a Mack Multi-launch like mentioned above :) A lot of people seem to think it'd be a good fit for the park but it would kind of make Rita defunct so whether they'd build another launch coaster with Rita still there is the big question. The idea is to remove Rita and use the space created f...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Is it worth taking a bag if you can only put it in the baggage areas? How often do people steal things?

Does anyone know exactly where the drop-off point is, as I need it for an upcoming trip.

Re: Industry General Discussion

Just a quick question for an essay I have to do: does anyone know how many accidents a year (not routine, so evacs don’t count) are the fault of the the ride itself, such as a computer failure, mechanical fault etc.

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

I’m going to Blackpool this summer (very late July), so I was just wondering what rides we should do in what order. My mum is adamant on dragging us all on Alice, so that must be included.

Re: Duel: Retheme, Replace or Remove?

I would love to see a Ghostbusters retheme, but not 5D. The main reason being they’re full of screens, and I greatly prefer physical models.

Re: Stealth

Before I start, I want to say that the last three coasters I have left to review are so tight. I could barely choose between them but, for the sake of listing things, I had to.  Funny story to start off with. As we were driving down the M25 to our hotel the day before our visit, we past the park, an...

Re: Colossus

So, first of all, Colossus surprised me a lot. Not only was it much better than I had originally expected, but it managed to beat out Saw in my list (coming soon). So, what was it exactly that surprised me? First of all, the whole area is very good for taking off ride photos. There’s track pretty mu...

Re: The Walking Dead: The Ride

So, next up is The Walking Dead: The Ride, which was the last thing I rode before leaving, and first of all, I’ve got to say that I prefer this to X. However, I do think that X was more necessary for the park, as my 8 year old little brother was thoroughly bored for most of the day. Anyway, onto the...

Re: SAW: The Ride

Sorry I’m late, I’ve been busy with revision for internals, but now I’m ready to give my review of all Thorpe’s coasters, starting with Saw.  So first let me just say that the theming here is good, just not at the level of the rest of the park. I did get a fastrack for it, so I may have missed some ...

I know that you can pre-book DigiPass, but where do you pick it up and how can you prove you’ve booked one?

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Ok, so I thought that something fun to do as it is one week until I go to Thorpe for the first time since breaking that 1.4m barrier would be to preview all the coasters that I haven’t yet done at the park, which is all but one. Feel free to tell me how wrong my opinions are. BTW I’ll be doing my pr...

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

Unsure whether to do this or not. I mean, it will probably be my only visit to Thorpe for two or three years, but at the same time, I’m not a fan of being scared and I’d much rather ride some coasters.
