Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

The Towers app has had changes. They are quite nice too. I prefer it to the older version, it has a better look and feel to it.

I suppose this shows how much I am missing Towers and it has only been four days! :lol :cry:

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - Quick Questions

We are at Thorpe Park for Fright Nights this weekend. Yesterday we missed Big Top Showtime every time we went to the Dome - so can someone help us out to catch it today? When does it run (a bit more specific that ‘after 3pm’)? Is it hourly? What’s the best way to ensure we catch the show? It runs h...

Re: Rate the Rollercoasters (2018 Edition)

I wouldn't have placed it as low if I had a night rides list, but I probably see where Dom is coming from (unless we have had two very different experiences). I think off ride The Smiler at night looks really good (obviously not as good as Wicker Man), the lighting of the Marmaliser is cool. On ride...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Does any one know what the Scaremosphere things were then? :-k Nothing happened. Literally nothing. Not sure how they can advertise something that doesn't exist. I searched round Mutiny Bay, The Towers and Galactica in the evening and to say I was dissapointed is an understatement. Scarefest as a w...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

The Fastrack and Special Access queues are no longer linker together anymore. Instead there is a host at the bottom of the stairs, who does the usual of letting some of the main queue up the stairs and then a group or two of the Special Access queue up. The Fastrack queue still uses the old Single R...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

I have never been in Sub Species, so please no spoilers. It will be my first year doing all the mazes this year. But how does the graffiti link to the theme of the maze? A skeleton with a party hat? A smiley face? A crown? The plain black container suited it well, isn't it the darkest of the mazes?

Re: Fright Nights

I suppose it would help with queue times, with the amount of attractions that need a queue. Plus the scare zones should take in quite a few people, depending on the extent. If Thorpe Park limit their capacity to a reasonable number, as well as the amount of fastracks available, then queue times shou...

Re: Colossus

I hope Thorpe Park see that it only needs a repaint and new trains, WITH lap bars, then the ride would be great. It is simple.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I wonder how other areas of the park held up. The pictures of the lake and rapids look mad. It would have been cool to see how much water was actually in the Nemesis pit.
