Re: Six Flags: 'substantial doubt' the chain will survive

They have announced a major cost cutting measure that will hopefully sort things for them.

Re: New park entrance?

I think it could be interesting if they borrowed some ideas from the Magic Kingdom. Would require quite a bit of redevelopment, but could allow for them to push the whole "resort" thing a bit more. Move the ticket sales booths to before you board the monorail. Some development around here ...

Re: Thorpe Park 2009: Saw - The Ride

I think its a fully legit contest. All they needed was my name, email address and bank details for verification purposes.

Can't see any problems there :)

Looks like this is going ahead as a Halloween trip.

All booked for me, DanB, Nick, Joel & the asbo bros.

Flying out on the 6th October, returning on the 21st.

Should be fun :)

Re: The Alton Dungeons

I think it sounds like a great idea. Whilst the towers technically are a stately home, due to their current condition they do feel more like a castle. Compare the interior to some of the property owned by the National Trust. It's an entirely different feel inside. A Dungeons branded permanent horror...

Re: Towers Street Highly Detailed Model!

DanB's is a bit better, but has too much blur on the top of the building.

The first one just looks like a normal photo with white lines drawn on in paint.

Re: Corkscrew: The End of an Era.

The four harnesses will lock - a pedal release system will enable you to get back out of the car! However, the pedal can only be accessed from outside of the car, so beware!


LMAO, I can imagine the headlines when some hardcore coaster type is found dead in their house after getting stuck.

Some of the Christmas music played at Blackpool on Saturday was good. This one was heard in the Big Dipper station - [url=http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=6P9xxJ4V7no" target="_blank]http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=6P9xxJ4V7no[/url]

Re: Alton Towers: New Year 2008/9

It did get a bit cold, so i think we moved back indoors to the conference centre again.

Empty pitch black room with music still playing. Quite creepy.

Really looking forward to it now.
