Re: Thorpe Park 2009: Saw - The Ride

No the drop isnt really that violent but just great fun. The airtime hill on speed is somewhat mind blowing the first time u ride it. I went to thorpe yesterday and was watching them test the ride. Also the motor has also been instaled that makes the blades at the bottem of the drop spin. The ride r...

Re: Where Seagulls Dare..

Stealth always kills birds. Infact i think its more of a bird killing machine then a rollercoaster

Re: Paulton's 2009 - The Edge & Water Kingdom

I think that they should make this in to a copy of Cheesington. I think they just need to had a few rides for bigger people 'im not talking something on the scale of Nemesis' but some thing like a huss top spin. This would make the park alot more popular as its the only bigish them park down in the ...

Re: What will they take away from the park in the next 5 years?

I think Submission needs to go. Send it to Thorpe with those blades on the top of it it would look really goodpainted black and red to go with the saw ride. And the Log Flume needs to go but be replcaed with a new one you just cant have a theme park with out a Log Flume it just wouldnt be right.

Re: 2009: Cloud Cuckoo Land, Skyride Refurbishment & Shows

I quite like the name. Also i think the area will look really good the daisies on the theater look quite good.Im guessing that why they have the daisey monorail train. Im also really hoping that the Ug swinger wil have water jets on it like the chessington one.

Re: THORPE PARK 2010

The main reason for Chessington and i fact most of the theme parks in the UK have got more visitors is because of the credit crunch. Domestic tourism has gone up this year because people cant affored to go abroad.

This is a quote from wikipedia. These are the first 2 sentences on the 'Cloud cuckoo land' ''Cloud Cuckoo Land refers to an unrealistically idealistic state where everything is perfect. ("You're living in Cloud-cuckoo-land.") It hints that the person referred to is naïve, unaware of realit...

I always loved Breakdancers, ever since I first went on Rodeo at CWoA. The only one I know of in the UK now is on Blackpool's South Pier.


Loudoun Castle also have one called Stormbreaker.

Re: Monorail overhaul complete

Iv never even used the Monorail as i usaly go by coach so its close to the entrance. I must admit the new Monorails do look alot better. I think that the supports could do with a repaint though.

Re: Thorpe Park 2009: Saw - The Ride

Yea really thorpe is just one big Thrill Island. I think its a shame really cause they have some really good areas that have potential for alot of very good themeing but they just never pull it off
