Re: THORPE PARK 2011

Looking at a video on youtube, I do not know how on earth this ride is going to fit in that small space. I feel this could go really well or badly wrong! :?

Re: HEX...

Went on the ride yesterday, everything seemed to work well and was an enjoyable ride, my friend was on for the first time and he enjoyed it. :) However we were in the waiting room before the screen room and some "chavs" came in and started being loud and noisy. One of them looked about 12...

Re: New Flats Ideas?

Maybe Pathetic is a bit over the top and you realy count the twirling toadstool as a flat?


I believe it is counted, that is the highlight of my day! :wink:

I don't know if it is counted to be honest, I would have thought so. Besides it still gets a reasonable queue does it not? :)

Re: Does Alton Towers Charge To Much?

I suppose they get away with it as they are a Resort and it is more family aimed, if the dreaded Thorpe Park did the same thing I reckon it would cause chaos. I suppose the entrance tickets doesn't affect me because of MAPing there. But I agree that fastrack is too much, Fastrack Scream Plus is £20,...

Re: THORPE PARK 2010

Yes, it had opened by the afternoon after being closed all morning. :) Clearly always seems to be my luck then doesn't it. It's been shut the last three visits. :cry: spark I don't think you can, I have the same issue with a TH13RTEEN string bag but I couldn't find one anywhere so I'm just waiting ...

Re: New Flats Ideas?

Saying there lineup is "pathetic" is a bit over the top, i'm not being mean or having a rant at you here as it's your opinion, but back in the day Alton had a fare share of flats, but in recent years all their attention has gone into Cred Street/Cloud Cuckoo Land and Ug Land/Dark Forest an...

They should just reform X Sector and have a fresh start, keeping Oblivion of course.

Re: Scarefest: 16-31 October 2010

I thought I'd right this for some advice! :lol: Basically, I have been to Scarefest for the last three years, I stay for the whole day until the park closes. I go on most of the rides in the dark but there is one thing I cannot do ... and that is the mazes! I just do not like them, I have never been...

Re: THORPE PARK 2010

I don't particularly want an "improvement" if it still means that not all rides are operating. This is the first time I have been this season and I wasn't impressed. Colossus chucked out trains at a slow rate today. Again I am sorry for the rant but Thorpe Park was poor. It wasn't the wors...

Re: THORPE PARK 2010

I went to Alton Towers on sunday and Thorpe Park today. I remember one of the TTFers ranting about Alton not being great on sunday, but compare that to Thorpe Park today, it seemed like heaven. :lol:

Re: THORPE PARK 2010

Yeah I understand and I'm with you on that Air Dan! :D DanielH. Inferno's queue wasn't reserved it was actually shut with yellow rope tied around it, I don't know why, also I don't see how Colossus needs three rows for people. I know what you mean but that didn't seem the case today! :) Rumba's evac...

Re: THORPE PARK 2010

The little things get to me! Having to evacuate Rumba Rapids is annoying and to concider (once again) Stealth was shut is just getting ridiculous. Rita barely has as much downtime ( I know it's a comparison but same technical features isn't it) and why shut rows on rides, what makes that row so diff...

Re: THORPE PARK 2010

I went to Thorpe Park today for the first time this year. All I can say is what happened? Entered the park at 10:30, my friends arrived later than planned. We decided to have a go on Stealth first so we walked over there all ready for the big launch (we'd seen them testing the ride in the carpark) f...

Re: Rides Ops / Ride Hosts

I give credit to the woman on Duel's on ride photo collection point, while our picture was printing she asked us how our day was and what our favourite ride was, I said Nemesis of course, but my friend said Oblivion, me and the woman started having an argument with my friend (banterful argument of c...

Looking at Nemesis, Air or Inferno from a certain angle gives me what Jeremy Clarkson calls a "crises".

Re: Ride Close Time

That is a very good idea.

They could do a LRT (Late Ride Time) where some rides stay open later!? (Following on from Big Dave)

Re: Queue Boards - Switched Off

A teleporter, it gets you to the queue quickly and easily so you can see the queue! :D

It is annoying that they are not working, if you are leaving X Sector and want to get to Forbidden Valley to ride Nemesis and Air, it would be good to see the queue times so you know what to expect! Get them back!
