The same is happening at Thorpe Park. Yesterday, a bloke in TP uniform walked up to us, we saw that he had a camera, so legged it into the inferno queue!

I don't mind the idea, but why not just take the photos ourselves?

When I visited Parc Asterix two years ago with school, I rode the Traces du Hourrah and was impressed! We queued for about 15 mins, and it was well worth the wait. The lift hill was the average chain lift, then at the top, the rails changed to the track part. Without rails, the ride ride had a sense...

My school have just announced a trip to Thorpe Park, and I can't wait! The last time I went was the year before Inferno was built! Has it changed much since?

As the picture on the article has those infamous Quentin Blake illustrations, do you think that we will be seeing these on the ride, or will more movieish scenes be used?

I visited Alton Towers on wednesday. I felt that the whole of cred street was looking pretty shabby especially toyland tours.

Speaking of a splash pond, isn't there that part in Charlie and the chocolate factory when they travel on a boat ride really quick and it is disorientating? That would be brilliant as an ending to the ride, disorientation then a drop!

Rita just appeared on Blue Peter. It looked pretty amazing and fast. Thes tested for screams, who could keep a straight face, and to see if jelly and trifle could stay on plates over everyones heads. It made a complete mess!
Anyways, blue peter gave it a very good review, i cant wait!!!

i think that the corkscrew should be kept for museum puposes. it would be cool to go to alton towers when im old and see the corkscrew there inside a museum wearhouse every so often letting people ride it.
