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

I definitely found other peoples reactions a positive overall, although it did make it hard to hear the audio at times!

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

It's unfortunate that any glitch, especially on your first ride, is probably going to ruin it for you, but that said, if the first time you went on a new rollercoaster it stopped mid way round and you had to be evacuated, similar story, like for instance thirteen and it's surprise drop, if it didn't...

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

Looks like I'm visiting Thorpe Park next week for the first time since 2010! Been a long while since I've been, been meaning to get a trip in for a while back but kept putting it off due to other commitments, so will be good to be back! Hoping to get in a ride (or maybe two) on DBGT during the day....

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

Annual passholders can now register for a chance to attend the exclusive Summer Nights event on August 5th. Rather than first come first served the 'winners' will be picked at random from everyone who registers interest. Well that's not going to be busy Yes I'm starting to think this might not be s...

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

If the ride does not run through smoothly then it's definitely going to ruin your experience, I think we got lucky Friday, it still seems like technical rehearsals even though it's officially open now, I reckon it will continue to improve over time.

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

To be fair to Thorpe they do have a massive line up of rides these days, it must be much more than AT, odds are something is going break down at some point or another.

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

That's not even worthy of a news story!

And the headline is massively misleading, usual news reporting low standards I see.

Re: X:\ No Way Out

When I went on it Friday some girls asked the ride op what's it like, he answered "do you like nightclubs? Yes. Do you like Rollercoasters? Yes, then you'll love it". I like X but the forward direction definitely feels tamer, as an upgrade shove Spinball whizzer in that building and now yo...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Let's talk cars It was running 2 last week, does it ever run 3 now? Shame it's still not got its missing cars back, it's a shame because all 5 whizzing around adds to the ride. And roughness, I find Saw unrideable, way too rough, gives me a headache on every go, the Smiler was a little rough on the ...

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

That's great! How do they get the GP to leave if the rides stay open? If it works like Summer Nights have done so previously, guests coming for the event get giving a wristband then, at ride close, a staff member stands at the entrance and only allows guests with the wristbands to join the queue. T...

I also had a problem with this "green gas" part... it can go on for minutes and barely anything happens! People were confused and taking their masks off. If it's a filler, then the filler needs to be more entertaining than a screen of green gas with nothing to look at. Or maybe just d...
