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.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - Quick Questions

I’m surprised about Stealth. I thought with it being an Accelarator, which have never been smooth, and the launch that the best would be front.

As well as that, the entire pit has been given a jet wash and the indoor areas of the queue and exit have been freshened up.

Re: The Swarm

This is more of a preview, as I’m visiting for the first time since breaking the 1.4m barrier. The Swarm is my most anticipated ride for my trip, mainly because it’s unlike anything in the UK. The dive drop looks like it’ll provide some great hangtime, much better than the only other hangtime I’ve e...

Re: Busch Gardens Tampa

This looks insane, and just in time for my potential Florida trip in 2021. However, I have seen people already assuming that this will be better than Steel Vengeance. Can we ride it first, then judge afterwards? Stats don’t mean anything.

Re: Flamingo Land

I would also love this to happen. Not only because i only live an hour away or so and their last roller coaster was a Volare, but it could also mean Colossus could be forced to close, which could bring something even better to that area.

Re: Flamingo Land Coast

This is great! As someone with relatives living in Scarborough for nearly 20 years, I have fond memories of the Futurist and was sad to see it go. What was even more sad, however, was the fact that nothing was happening to the land. But now... I’m a big fan of Flamingo Land, so this could be exactly...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - Quick Questions

Sorry, me again. I’m having trouble looking at the prices for a day ticket, as when I click on the link, it just takes me back to the generic tickets page. Could anyone tell me the prices or 2 adult day tickets and 2 child day tickets?
