Re: Congo River Rapids - General Discussion

Quick question, is there still a rule that you have to be with an adult if you're under a certain age?

Anyone know roughly how busy the park usually is on Tuesdays (specifically, during scarefest)

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

I don't think it's the worst thing they could have done but tbh I'm struggling to think of rides that'll fit the themes. Only thing I can think of us possibly a Zamperla Air Race themed around Grandpas Great Escape.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hi all!
Did any of the skyride stations ever have a green and yellow roof (circa around late 80s)?

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

My friend said the Nemesis music sounds a bit like The Crystal Maze music.

To be fair, she has a point.

Re: Worst thing you've ever accidently done at a park.

I may have inadvertently caused a ride shut down. I'm unsure, but I raised my restraint at the end of the ride, there was a loud bang, the ride then shut down for an hour. Not saying which one. :sus: Similar experiance, not at a park, but at IKEA. I didnt step off the escalator in time, clipped the...

Worst thing you've ever accidently done at a park.

This is gonna stem from a personal experience from today. I nearly set off a Fire Alarm in Hex. We were near the front in the preshow area and I was leaning against the wall. I decided to kinda slap the stone wall because we were waiting. That was fine, hand made contact with the wall. Second time, ...

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

Aha, I just remembeted this! Last Scarefest, it was just me and my friend and we were lining up to get Project 42 tickets at the ticket booth outside X Sector and *everyone* was asking the same questions over and over again. By the time I got to the front of the queue, my friend went to sit down, an...

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

Not so much funny this one, moreso sad, but I just remembered when I went to Drayton with my mates and they were like 'Lets go on G Force, that's so fun', and I decided to be the one to break it to them, before they saw the closed signs. Yeah, that wasn't fun. Same day, some guy to his mates behind ...

Re: Merlin General Discussion - New Owners agreed in £4.8bn deal

I gotta say, I'm kind of worried about this. Can't see them having much experience in the thrill aspect of parks, let's not hold out hope for a new Thorpe coaster any time soon.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I bet Sub Terra although the return of the red is probably more likely.

Re: Duel - General Discussion

Fingers crossed this is gonna be resolved later in the season. Anyone who's spent more than five minutes talking to me will know how much I absolutely treasure this ride but Christ I feel bad for it. How hard is it to at least get the Trommel back in operation? Also, I have pretty much all the sound...
