Re: Drayton Manor

I was never taken to a theme park for a school trip, we always had to do something atleast vaguely learning based, like the theatre or goape, so I'm a bit biased, but I don't think school trips should go to theme parks, Can a school really ever sufficiently supervise 100 kids in a theme park?

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

Was on the park today. Never seen it so dead, Not moaning at all. Looking forward to some spoiler free reviews! To be fair Wednesday felt like like the park wasn't really open yet, the park opening barely a week before DBGT means nobody is mad enough to go before tomorrow, apart from people like us...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

You'd think any changes to the queue line would of been sorted out long before opening day, they were there with a pneumatic drill only yesterday, they like cutting it fine don't they!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Ummmmm any idea when the spa reopens? It's kind of a deal breaker for any trips I have planned with friends and family, which is very difficult to plan when the website is so vague, summer! When's summer?

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train

Any news regarding it having a soft opening before the 31St? I'm half expecting somebody to say it's running today!

Re: Alton Towers - Offers, Vouchers and Discounts

I'm holding out for a better offer, so far there January and February offers have not been as good as last year! Hopefully the Sun offer will still appear.

I did get one on Dragster though which was nuts and quite frankly scary.


Was it the top thrill though? \:D/

Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

There was somebody in the Loggers queue line doing some mantainance back in August, I could see them from the top of Saw or Samurai, the bit of outdoor queue line next to the beginning of the ride. I really hope they keep it, it would be cost cutting that would be very short sighted on Thorpes part,...

Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

Do you think it's a coincidence the flume closed at the same time? Seems a bit odd! After not riding it for what could be atleast 20 years the double drop was a pleasant surprise, no sooner have I been reacquainted it's closed the next year, potentially without even a proper send off.

I do hope it comes back! Much better than the Flume was.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

This recent post on Thorpe Park Mania lists a number of issues which only adds to my current disappointment with DBGT. Worst part for me was when I boarded the carriage for the 2nd half of the VR experience, we all sat here motionless with nothing happening for approximately 3 minutes on both rides...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

It would be crazy if summer Nights reloaded is Derren less again for the second time, not that I minded the 1st time, it was still a great evening, but what will they do if it's out again? Summer Nights reloaded Xtra spring 2017?
