Re: Fright Nights

Are they likely to be running the same manically busy limited Fright night openings? Im sure it used to be on for longer with more nights. We went last year and the park was at capacity.
Is there normally an annual pass night? Is it quieter? Maybe that's the answer!

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

I think both Galactica and DBGT VR headsets suffer from heat problems, the headsets overheat in warm weather, Galactica had holes cut into the front of the headsets recently for extra ventilation.

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

I'm sure of you contact Guest Services then they can sort something out for you. You would have been a pass holder at the original event and this event is a form of appology to make up for DBGT which we didn't have access to on the night, but it is worth checking. I was a bit gutted that we didn't ...

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

This rearranged summer night because of the failed original, our passes run out before the new summer night is scheduled, do you think they will still let us go?

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

It seems DBGT will remain closed all day today due to a 'technical issue'. Oh dear, it seems DBGT is turning into one massively ambitious headache for the park, if it wasn't already! I don't want to be a downer on it though, I think I was lucky to get a pretty seamless run on it on opening day (whi...

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

I had a go on this again today and I'm still not sure of the ride. It is very Marmite; you either love it or hate it! Personally, I don't like it and don't think it is worth the time queuing. I do however recommend everyone tries it as it amazes some! The theming is VERY good, but I look forward to...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

I may get a mug tomorrow. Or we might all just feel a little bit mugged because the park will be rammed! Very likely. I hope it is not busy though! I wonder how busy Chessington was today? A few years ago we turned up nice and early to Thorpe but it soon filled to capacity, so we bailed to Chessing...

Re: Chessington - General Discussion

Is there any early or late ride time for annual pass holders at Chessington these days?

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

I've had the leg ticklers but no smoke. This is my worry with things like this, so many elements to keep working, I'm always disappointed when stuff does not work that should, like red lights and/or mist on Nemesis inferno, they struggle to keep those 2 things working, let alone something as comple...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

It has been confirmed by Thorpe Park, via email, that Stealth will not be open for their Summer Night. Please note, Stealth will be unavailable during the event but we've got so much more action in place for you to make this evening unforgettable. That's a pity, it was not working last time I visit...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Nope I already checked that, it would be nice if they let you know regardless, it seemed the emails have gone out fairly slowly but I'm thinking it's too late now but I'm kind of still left waiting, my brother will be gutted too!

EDIT: Confirmation has finally arrived, that's a slow process!
